|Small Hands by shirebound||11 Review(s)|

|This was wonderful. I love that the brother's have the first Bag End miniature diorama, and that Gondorians kept prized sculptures by the hobbits for generations. And I love all the ways the title comes into play through the tale. Your stories just grow richer with each layer like Frodo's wax hand bath. |
Author Reply: Oh, thank you, my friend! Honestly, I keep thinking that each story will be the last, that there can't possibly be anything more to write about. The hobbits keep surprising me! ♥

|Aww, what a sweet ending to this tale. I bet that Bag End became a treasure heirloom passed down for generations. It's lovely to think of DelumÓr and CaladÓr being so rewarded for their kindness and devotion to the hobbits. <3|
Author Reply: Your review gave me such a big smile this morning. *beams* Bless our hobbits, and everyone who loves them.

Wow! My comment turned out to be a tiny plot bunny. Thank you very much!
I very much liked the idea of a hobbit "fan shop" in Minas Tirith, and the miniature Bag End made of wax.
But these words from DelumÓr I liked most:
ďMay the lives of all those who stood against the darkness be forever filled with the light of a thousand candles.Ē
Author Reply: Hooray for Andrea-inspired sweetness! May hobbity love and the brightness it inspires continue to enrich our lives. Happy Halloween, and thank you again for your support and enthusiasm. :)

Love this! We have so much to learn and love from all the heroes of Middle-earth. More precious than gold indeed. Maybe even, dare I say, mithril.
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: Thank you, Antane. More precious than mithril indeed! I completely agree. :)

|Like I said before, the athelas candles are BRILLIANT. I wish we have them here!|
Thank you so much for writing this beautiful story, Janet. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Very much :)
Author Reply: Thank you so much, my friend. I'm inspired now to bring a variety of fragrant candles home to burn when I need cheering up. I'm delighted that you enjoyed this. Our hobbits deserve every happy moment and good friendship. And so do we. :)

|Ah, but so proper a memorial for the Hobbits to have within this shop! Delightful!|
Author Reply: Thank you! I'm so happy this rings true for you.

|It's sad to think that Aragorn was afraid some harm might fall the hobbits in Minas Tirith, but it turned out to be a wonderful arrangement for the hobbits and their new friends. I love how this ended.|
Author Reply: Oh, thank you. Where to end a story is as challenging for me as how to start it!

|This is such a hopeful and heartwarming story! Thank you!|
Author Reply: Thank you, Magis. 'Hopeful' and 'heartwarming' are what I most love writing (and reading) about. Our hobbits, and those who love and respect them, deserve their happily-ever-afters. :)
