Let Him Eat Cake  by Grey Wonderer 22 Review(s)
AntaneReviewed Chapter: 1 on 7/1/2007
Cute! Oh, poor Pippin, first afraid everyone was going to take his cake before he could really enjoy it and then over-indulging and being hopeful there wouldn't be celebrations when he got older. And who says Frodo wasn't there in some way?

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Yes, Pippin had a rather rough night of it didn't he? I do like to think that Frodo was watching it all from somewhere. That makes me happy. Thank you for reviewing!

Fantastic, as always, dear GW. Funny and sweet all in one. You're so very good at these wonderful stories.

I was pretending that I didnt need anyone here, Pippin said. I thought it was the adult thing for me to do. Do you mind staying?

Of course not, Eglantine said looking pleased to be asked. You may be all grown up now and be a Knight and live all the way out at Crickhollow away from your family and be in love but now and again a lad needs his mum.

I asked Merry to go and get you, Pippin said softly as he drifted off to sleep."

That is so very true! Especially when the lad is sick, hehehe.

Mewd - as always!

Author Reply: Thank you! Dreamflower's plot bunny was fun to write and I am very glad that she gave me permission to give this one a go. This is one of those mother and son moments and as the mother of a son I am certain that you know all about this sort of thing. : )

Oh and thank you for the Mewd! Now that I know what it means I am very pleased to have you post it! Thank you! LOL

Too much cake even for poor Pippin? And Diamond helping load him up on it? Oh, how wonderful! Poor, poor lad!

Now--he can pretend to be just a lad and have his mum hold his hand and love him as mum's do, and relax--and by the end of the week he'll be loving cake once more! I suspect his mother's right on that count!

Thanks for the laughs.

Author Reply: So glad you enjoyed this one. I thought it was a bit different then allowing Pippin to get drunk with Merry for his coming of age. And I could see this happening to Pippin. Thank you for reviewing.
As to Eglantine, I think this let her know that her youngest would always need her. : )

A wonderful tribute to another lovely writer. Now, to enjoy the humor!

Author Reply: Sometimes you just read something in someone else's story and it set you on an idea and this was one of those times. It worked out perfectly as a birthday surprise and since the subject is cake that works all the more. LOL

This is such a sweet story, and I mean that in all it's meanings.:)

I knew fairly early on that poor Pippin was in trouble, but it was interesting to see how his difficulty unfolded.

I felt so sorry for him when Merry found him. I'm glad, though, that it was Merry and not some other well-meaning relative offering him more cake.

The last bit with Pippin and his mum was so loving. Just what a young adult needs most, his mum to be close when needed, but willing to let him be as grown up as he wants to be.

Great job GW.

Author Reply: It was pretty clear where this one was going, wasn't it? LOL
When I read Dreamflower's story I thought it would be funny if rather than getting drunk from drinking the toasts to his health at his coming of age party if Pippin just ate too much cake like a much younger hobbit might have done. I didn't want it to be for childish reasons so I had to give him an adult reason to over-indulge, not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings. Thank you for reading and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Oh dear, poor Pip! Even the legendary Peregrin Took's appetite for cake has been defeated! And how typical of Merry to go out and tell the assembled guests that Pip is drunk rather than beaten by cake. At least Diamond won't have to be offended.

A lovely story and so typical of our Pip.

Author Reply: Yes leave it to Merry to cover up things well. He has had a bit of experience so he should make a fine show of it. As to Pippin's appetite for cake, well I guess everyone, even Pippin has a limit! LOL

LindeleaReviewed Chapter: Prologue on 7/1/2007
Hurrah, another GW prologue for me to comment on! And here it is, July, and starting on the morrow I shall have the luxury of a whole hour or two of daily reading time! Hurrah for summer! Hurrah for Pippin! Hurrah for Dreamflower! Hurrah for birthdays! Hurrah for GW!

Author Reply: And Hurrah for Lindelea for reviewing the prologue so it won't feel left out! Enjoy your summer!

Oh, I liked this! And I wonder if anybody will ever believe that Pippin ate all that cake just to make other people happy. Well, I think he's going to make a lovely a grown-up and I hope his mama's potion works quickly!

Happy Birthday to Dreamflower!

Author Reply: Thank you. Pippin might have trouble making anyone believe that he was only eating some of that cake for the sake of others. LOL And I am certain that Eglantine might have believed it. Glad you liked this one!

This is a darling story, and what a wonderful gift for Dreamflower. Pippin certainly is learning "Watch out what you wish for, you might get it!"

But I especially loved this...

did enjoy the cake. The truth was he enjoyed making her happy far more than he enjoyed the cake. That was a bit troubling


Author Reply: Thank you. I suspect that any time a hobbit thinks of anything or anyone before they think of food then it's a sign of something important. LOL

SlightlyTookishReviewed Chapter: 1 on 7/1/2007
LOL! This is very funny and sweet. I especially liked the bit where Merry says that in his mind, Pippin will never be older than ten years old. And the last bit with Pippin and Eglantine was just adorable!

Author Reply: Merry's line comes from something that happens to me. I seem to have trouble realizing that younger family members are all grown up at times. I have an age for them and for some reason when I think of them they are always at that age when I picture them in my mind. LOL

Glad you enjoyed this and I do hope that you have a bit of time to write more yourself soon. I miss your lovely tales!
