Amazing story. I enjoyed every word of it--especially Merry's glimpse into the true nature of Frodo--beautiful. I'd say more, but I'm very tired, so I'll just say that I can't rave enough about this story. It's perceptive and moving...bravo bravo!

Oh. That hurts, in the sweetest way, and somehow it seems fitting that Frodo should reassure *me* that he will be all right, and the beginning, that conversation between Sam and Gandalf, it's illuminating. Thanks for the lovely tale, Ariel.

Awwww... This is the sweetest, and yet most heartbreaking chapter in this tale. Merry's sensing Frodo's change, and Frodo hiding his vision, surrounded by Pip's unfailing cheerfulness and Gandalf's concern and Sam's resourcefulness, it's simply lovely. It's even more gut-wrenching because you threw in the Bilbo-factor, you wicked thing! And of course that last thought of Frodo before he slept simply undid me. *wipes eyes*

Awww... well, you do know me. Can't have a fic without my signature angst...

I love Merry's reaction to the healers' tending him. Naughty hobbit! :) And I love the conversation Frodo had with Aragorn about friends and worries. He's so poised and self-possessed, your Frodo, he's delicious. :)

The Numenorean invented crane and bulldozer! Yay! And I love it that Frodo isn't helpless but tried to help with the rescue. And his thought about protecting his cousins, and his vision of Merry...wonderful! And what adelicious cliffhanger! *rubs hands and runs off to read the next chapter*

I started reading this and could not stop until I'd read all the way through. I love your hobbits here, most especially your Frodo and your Merry and your Sam and your Pippin -- well, I guess I love them all.

Wonderful story. Oh yes.

Thank you!

Yes, I write them as I see them, and I sure wish more folk saw them this way! PJ's films are very enjoyable, but Tolk's hobbits are the ones I fell in love with, and they are the ones I try and write!

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!
