|Absolutely spot on, and beautiful! If I didn't already know how it ends, I'd be weeping buckets. But even so, I teared up.|

|That was a really interesting take on the scene! Not a host (and a hobbit) scared out of their mind, but defiant to the last. I really like it and how Pippin has suddenly grown up - and how he realizes that. Thank you for writing this!|
Author Reply: Thank you! Iím happy you liked it. I feel like at this point they may have come out on the other side of the fear, with only the defiance left ó at least, I hope so. :-) Thx so much for your comments!

|This is a lovely piece. It makes me wonder, how this moment affected Pippin in his later years. As he thought the world was ending, his innate strength and dignity shone forth. I think it probably changed him forever, but I wonder if he ever thought of it later. |
Author Reply: Itís a good question. Iím sure the moment did change him forever, as you say ó but for myself, I suspect it would have been hard for him to grasp in memory or words after, it being so far removed from the true outcome they experienced. I have a few moments myself which I know were of great importance to me but which are rather shy about coming to the surface now, as it is years later and I am in a different place ó in my own mind, this may have been one such for Pippin.
Thx so much for your comments!

|Great little story about Pippin in fierce battle; finding his raison d'etre amidst the chaos and danger. He's my favorite hobbit in LOTR, and it's fun to see him growing up and cutting loose at the same time.|
Author Reply: Than you! Growing up and cutting loose ó I like it. :-) Thx so much for your comments!

|that was beautiful! I love how you used Pippin's point of view and i'm glad that he wants to represent the Shirefolk in this last stand. Great charactertization, description and i love how you also incorporated battle cries of different languages between the Middle-earth races.|
Author Reply: Thank you! I had fun trying to look the languages up and get them figured out ó its one of the fun things about writing fanfic, the research bit ... :-) Thanks so much for your comments!

|Wonderful! What a stirring look at Pippin's thoughts during that last battle. When he looked around at his companions, I could see them, too!|
