|A good deal in common on all fronts, it seems. And I, too, was thinking on how Maglor's music must have inspired the traditions known in the Hall of Fire. How delightful!|
Author Reply: That was not a notion that had occurred to me before I began this story, but it seemed very natural and likely once I started on the train of thought about what life might have been like with a bard like Maglor.

|Another great little story! I have never thought about that similarity in Frodo's and Elrond's lives, but you are quite right!|
"Had I a silver penny for every time I heard the phrase 'Frodo is the finest hobbit in the Shire' over the years, my coffers would overflow!"
Very true :-)
Author Reply: I never had either until I saw the prompt; I had thought about Elrond and Bilbo, though.
I imagine Bilbo spent a lot of time bragging about Frodo, LOL!

|A sweet tale! It's hard for Frodo at this time but there is still goodness.|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: Yes, there is, not the least of it unexpected friendship and understanding.

|Elrond, the consumate healer! How like him to bring up potentially painful memories to bridge the gap with Frodo and offer healing to a wounded soul. |
I had not given thought to Bilbo as "father" for Frodo, but indeed he was. All those years and adventures Frodo would have had, as well as lessons and growing up, we never see from The Professor. But here we have a taste.
Author Reply: I've always thought that the adoption would make Frodo legally a son, although he never called Bilbo father. (Which is why I think both of them had fond memories of Drogo--Bilbo would never want to try and replace that relationship.) But in every way that mattered he became Frodo's parent.
Elrond would know the things he shared with Bilbo and he would realize that meant there were things he shared with Frodo as well. I think that his heart was always open to friendship and it was part of why he was known for his hospitality.

|Awww. This is delightful! This little piece shows great insight, in touching upon some of Elrond's and Frodo's common ground. Beautifully done.|
Author Reply: You know, I'd often thought about Elrond and Bilbo having in common the fact that they both had foster sons; but until that prompt, I'd never thought of the flip side: that both Elrond and Frodo were foster sons! So I was really glad of the chance to examine that revelation!

|I just love it when Big Folk and Little find common ground, and this is especially lovely. Bilbo may have found a good friend in Elrond, but Bilbo, too, would have helped Elrond through many lonely and worrisome years. This is a wonderful conversation.|
Author Reply: You are exactly right! I think the two of them were truly good friends, and probably enjoyed many stimulating conversations.
It's one reason that I really love the scene in the movies at the Grey Havens, the look of fondness in Elrond's eyes as he summons Bilbo to his side for the next great adventure. You can just tell they are good friends.
