Ah, Bilbo the Savior of one small boy who wishes to shower treasure upon his mother! So glad they found him under the Cliffside rather than under one of the waterfalls.

A hot summer afternoon, just looking for something entertaining and what do I find?

This was fun, a little adventure for two! The little boy dreaming fantasy dreams (could just as easily have been a girl in our time) and the adventure which leads to danger. So nice to see a good ending with happy parent, happy hobbit and yes, happy Elf lord. That "kind like a summer evening", while making the rounds lately, is always welcome when done right.

This was done right.

Thank you!

What a nice little story about Bilbo first meeting Aragorn. It paints such a warm picture of the relationship between Aragorn and Elrond.

What a nice little scene! Imagine Bilbo and Aragorn meeting for the first time like that. Aragorn is quite the adventurous kid, of course, good that Bilbo could come to the rescue!

What a sweet story! I love how well it fits into the canon story and all the small detail you put in. Bilbo's buttons, for once. Great work!

Oh, this is marvelous! I especially love the little details like...

Bilbo stared at the narrow hole between the rocks. He was suddenly getting afraid for his buttons.

What a wonderful, hobbity tale for this special anniversary of The Hobbit. I look forward to the next chapter.
