I love it when a fic shows the lighter, more sparkly side of Elrond, instead of the more usual presentation of dignified ancient wisdom. He is wise, but there is such joy and caring in the way he goes about bringing the hobbits into the life and society of their new home. (Perhaps he's been affected by his association with hobbits!)

Author Reply: Perhaps he has been! After all, Bilbo had been living in his House for many years. I suspect that Elrond's joy in being reunited with his wife (and possibly being able to reunite with his mother) must have had a lightening effect on his spirit.

What a wonderful notion - Bilbo and Frodo as Elrond's librarians on Tol Eressea!

Author Reply: Thank you. Once this idea took hold of me, it just wouldn't let go. :)

Greetings Shirebound,

I can just picture all those lovely elves lounging about on the lawn reading. A very good strategy, Master Elrond. A wonderful tale, this. Can I get a library card?



Author Reply: I can picture it, too. I like to think of the coming of mortals to the West as a positive experience for everyone. :)

Where, indeed?

Author Reply: I think Frodo and Bilbo would greatly enjoy becoming librarians when they 'retire'. :)

What a delight to see your name here tonight. And what a wonderful tale to start this new collection! Yes, how like frodo to find such pleasure in books and the presence of Elves.

I'm grinning all over my face, my friend. Thank you!

Author Reply: Awww, thank you. I think we're going through life making each other grin.

Author Reply: And I just "got" the incredibly clever title of your chapter "Hope Remains"! Well done.
