|Three Things About Pippin by Grey Wonderer||22 Review(s)|
|Baggins Babe||Reviewed Chapter: 1 on 2/18/2007|
|I think Frodo is very clever - or he's been reading psychology books in Bilbo's study again! the surest way to make the girls defend Pip was to criticise him! I'm sorry about the trousers though - and Pervinca went a bit far to kick his shin!|
Pippin was adorable and Eglantine sounds a sensible Mum. Thanks for this, GW.
Author Reply: If Bilbo has psychology books then I am certain Frodo has read them all at least twice! LOL Pervinca was rather wicked wasnt she? Frodo may have regretted helping them slightly after that, but when Pippin greeted him I do think Frodo would have believed it was all worth while. Thank you for the lovely review!

|ROFLMAO!!! Absolutely...delicious.....the characterizations are just perfect! Pippin is so adorable I could eat him up alive and his sisters...why do they remind me of the Brady girls somehow...lolol Frodo was just too clever! |
Thanks for a most delightful story.......
Author Reply: Thank you! I am glad that you enjoyed it. I like allowing Frodo to save the day. Thank you so much for the review! The Brady girls, uh? That works. I hadnt thought of them that way but it makes sense. LOL

|You know, this is the Frodo I adore! You have shown just how wise he is, and how patient. Although I am very sorry for his trousers and his shin, LOL!|
*chuckle* Can you imagine what Bilbo would have said to the notion that he was terribly strict, and didn't think it proper not to know all the right words to a song?
The only thing wrong with this story is that it was too short!
*sigh* I wish I could get back on PippinHealers, but Yahoo! doesn't like me right now.
Author Reply: This is the sort of role I like Frodo in also. I like him as the peace maker and the wise older cousin with the answers. I believe one of his biggest strengths was the fact that he could reason things out that others might fail to see.
Bilbo would have been amused by the entire business and very proud of Frodo for being so clever. I almost let Bilbo do the honors in this one. I had another plan of action in which both Frodo and Bilbo turned up together and I had Frodo being very embarrassed that Bilbo was insulting Pippin. In the end I decided that gave me too many characters to deal with and I left dear Bilbo in Tuckborough. LOL
This got long enough that I was afraid to post it in one link to Pippinhealers. LOL Thank you though. I am glad that you could have read more if I had written it! That is a very nice thing for you to say.
I do hope you can get back onto the site soon. I worry that interest in that site is dying a bit. They dont seem to be posting much other than announcements about the doings on other boards. There was something about the round robin the other day but no real response to that post. I am not even certain who was next on that.

|Bravo! Bravo!! Bravisimo!!!|
I love how Frodo handled that. The Terrible Tooks Sisters can complain about their wee brother all they want - but anyone else doing it faces their wrath!!
MEWD GW :-)
Author Reply: No one can say anything bad about your family. LOL You can complain about them but they are yours and you have to protect them from others. Clever Frodo knew exactly what would work. He may not have counted on the kick in the shin or the tea on the trousers, but he was pretty certain that the sisters would realize how fond they really are of Pippin. Glad you liked it and thank you so much for reviewing!

|oooo! An interesting challenge :-)|
Author Reply: I thought it was interesting too. I had several ideas all at once for this one but what is posted here seemed to most likely to me. I hope you enjoy it.

|GW, it amazes me how you can write a story like this so spontaneously! I saw the beginnings of your story over at PippinHealers a couple days ago, and now it's finished already! Not only finished, but in such a fine form, too! I would have MAYBE a rough draft by now. You are a very talented writer.|
And this story was so adorable...I love young Pippin stories! Even when he's being a brat, he's just so irresistable! Thank you for another lovely story.
Author Reply: It is funny but if I have an idea then it just comes out all at once, line by line. If I have to think about it and plan it then I cannot write it! This was done in two nights. I could have finished the first night but I got too sleepy. LOL I am always amazed by people who do the research and plan out the chapters. I lose interest in the story if I have to do that much for each part of it.
Thank you for your lovely words. They are much appreciated!

|This was GREAT, Grey Wonderer, from beginning to end!|
It seems that Frodo arrived for his impromptu visit just in time to set the Took sisters straight. And your little Pippin is just so utterly adorable no matter what he does.
Pippin shifted again and then looked up at Frodo and whispered rather loudly. “Do you need to go to the privy, Frodo?”
“Pippin!” Eglantine frowned. “If you need to go then you are perfectly able to go without Frodo’s help. You’re a big lad now.”
“I don’t have to go,” Pippin said. “But I think Frodo’s already too late.”
“What?” Frodo looked confused.
Pippin leaned over and whispered in that loud voice again, “You’ve wet your trousers and I think I sat in it. I won’t tell but someone will notice the back of me if I get up and then one of us will be in trouble. We can say it was me.”
This scene is just priceless and I laughed so hard!
And the return (well mention really) of Errol! :D
Author Reply: Thank you! That scene was one of those last minute things that just came to me as I was writing. I started to end this with the sisters realizing that they had been tricked into naming the things that they liked about Pippin. I couldnt resist letting Pippin greet Frodo though and the next thing I knew this scene popped into my head. Glad you enjoyed it. I did figure Errol might get invited to tea. He has very nice party manners for a stuffed Rabbit!

|Reminds me of my sister - I could say the most awful things about her without blinking an eye but heaven help anyone else who spoke of her in terms a tenth as bad! Frodo was wonderful to provoke the sister's defense of their brother, and even with all the headaches Pippin was adorable in this story. |
Author Reply: No one else can talk about your family and get away with it. I know thats true for most of us! (grin) Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!

|What a sweet story and great characterisation of Frodo and the Tooks! Enjoyed reading it very much! |

|“He did indeed,” Pearl smiled. “He tricked us into realizing that we might not always be pleased with the things that Pippin does, but that we do love him.” |
“We do?” Pervinca looked surprised by this news.
LOL! Frodo has some nerve attempting that trick, but it worked. The sisters might be able to insult Pippin, but don't anyone else try! And contrite!Pippin is so very adorable. And it was very polite of him to offer to let Frodo help him clean the room!
Author Reply: I am glad you enjoyed this one. Pervinca might not have been completely certain that she loved Pip but when it came right down to it, she did let Frodo have it in the shin for his troubles. Poor Frodo! No good deed goes unpunished, does it?
I guess someone must have found a copy of Tom Sawyer in the Shire. hehehe Pippin made a good effort to get Frodo to do his work, didnt he? And it was polite. LOL Thanks for reviewing!
