And here they meet again. But Bilbo does not recognize the boy from before. I think you captured Bilbo's character perfectly.

And so they meet again. I wonder if they finally find out that they already met so long ago. Has Aragorn ever learnt the name of the Hobbit helping him, and Bilbo at this point Aragorn's name?

Oh, what a lovely story. I had tears in my eyes at the end. Poor Aragorn and poor Bilbo. Two lonely wanderers. You portrayed the elderly Bilbo so well. His wandering thoughts, but at the same time he is still able to help.

How lovely to see another chapter of this! I do so love to see Bilbo's friendship with Aragorn, and this is a wonderful idea of how it might have come about!

I also like seeing that in spite of his age, Bilbo still can be brave enough to wield Sting! And I love the sly little references both to the verse that inspired this story, but also to little bits of LotR!

VERY nicely done!

Now, that is quite the meeting between them! "I'd like to join you, but first I'd best do in the orcs that have been following you!" At least Bilbo's Hobbit skills are enough to save them both a bit of work!

What a marvelous first meeting! This reads like something missing from the Professor's tale. I enjoyed this very much.
