Turnabout  by Ariel 17 Review(s)
MareaReviewed Chapter: 1 on 3/2/2005
Oh Ariel m'dear... I've just read the first chapter and I KNOW I'm going to love this fic.

A strong, protective Frodo... what more can I say than YES, YES, YES!!!! The very Frodo Baggins within my dreams these two decades (and yes that DOES make me feel OLD).

Even now imagining myself a saucy 3'5" halfling wench spending quality time stranded in a basement with Our Hobbit. (Words fail me).

Thanks - as always - for the high quality diversion.

Marea!!! *pounces* Oh, I know you are going to like this one! You already know how much I prefer my Frodo book flavor, and in this, he is as close as I could make him. LOL!

Two decades is about right for me too. I've known him far longer than any other incarnation, their delightful countenance not withstanding!

Well written and enjoyable. Love the image of Frodo seeking to protect and comfort Merry here.

Author Reply: Thank you, Larner! I very much enjoyed writing him this way - it is very much the way I always saw him.

Ariel, I love this!!!! I love the details, and suspense, but most of's Frodo's who's giving the care now, and that's a very welcome change that I truly appreciate. And when he sang to Merry! *swoons* Thanks for this, Ariel! :)

BTW. The illo rocks. No pun intended. *gazes in awe*

I have such a passion for strong Frodo and far too few people write him! I agree, a very welcome change!

I must have missed this story on the Challenge page. It takes me quite a while to get through them and I must have thought I read this one when I didn't! Anyway, I'm enjoying it now! Some good h/c is sometimes very nice!

Merry and Frodo and certainly in a bit of trouble! I hope that the guard hurries! It's a good thing the guards and Sam weren't trapped as well, that certainly would have been a task!

Looking forward to the rest, I will probably continue reading it here as I don't think I will be able to go back as I'm trying to slowly, but steadily make it through the Challenge 13 stories!

*Salutes Hai for her diligence!*

I know exactly what you mean! I don't think I have ever managed to get through all the fics in a challenge, but it sure is fun trying! I am pleased to see you caught this one now - and hope you enjoy the rest! Stay tuned!

Well Ariel, this wasn’t the next story of yours I was planning to read, but there it was on the SoA home page, so… Sometimes proximity trumps priority, I guess!

It’s nice to see Frodo on the comfort end for a change… My favorite line: “Frodo had always been the strong one, never sick, always confident, responsible and competent.” YES—Strong Frodo lives!
Claustrophobia, eek—one of my own worst nightmares! Good thing it was a Man-sized fireplace, or two hobbits could never have fit!

Author Reply:

Oh, you know me and strong Frodo! Angst is much better when the subject is hale and whole - even if the opportunites for it are fewer.

Oh, I know what you mean about claustrophobia - eek! And since Merry's gotten to be such a big hobbit, he almost doesn't! Will post the next chapter tonight (I hope).

Preach it, sistah! :*

Great story. Look forward to reading it all over again!

Author Reply:

*grin* And it now has an ending! Yeah! I plan on putting the whole thing up as soon as I have the last chapter back from the beta. Thanks for your support!
