|Poor hobbits! I can very well understand their discomfort. Two weeks ago I was bitten not by midges, but by a fly. It was a single fly, but it managed to bite me at least four times - in no more than ten minutes! It only stopped when I fled ;-)|
Author Reply: Insect bites can be so annoying, sometimes an itch is worse than pain!

|And such pests they proved to be! Heh!|
Poor Hobbits--being undersized compared to Men they do make better targets for the midges.
Author Reply: Exactly! Originally I had thought to do only the hobbits' POVs, but when I read that the sort of midge it was likely they encountered were low-swarming, I decided to add Aragorn's POV too!

|I am just as glad that the invasion took time to clear up, I find. Heh! Now--to try peppermint oil on my windowsill and countertop!|

|That must be what it was like. And they were there for 2 days! I don't know how I would have handled it - I would have but not been any happier than the hobbits. This is one scene in the book I am glad I was there with them.|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: I know. Sheer misery!

|Those poor hobbits could certainly have used a can of insect repellent, couldn't they? I would hate to be plagued by midges! I find mosquitoes and gnats annoying enough, as it is.|
Author Reply: I'm sure if Sam had known they would have needed it, he'd have brought something to relieve the itch!

|Those ants really infested Bag End, didn't they? Thanks to Pippin's not-so-little prank! (Though, in this case, I can't say I blame him!)|
Author Reply: Oh, Pippin was really ticked off at the S-Bs after they came in early to "tour" Bag End again, and insulted Frodo! No way he'd not get back at them before he left!

|A story as delicate and tasty as the cake that appears in it. :)|
Interior decorating in post-war Middle-earth must have been a real challenge. It's just as well that the hobbits have plenty of money to rise to it!
Author Reply: In this AU, it was always Pippin's desire to top the guest room Bilbo built for Gandalf, with a whole wing of the hole dedicated to Big Folk visitors!

|Loved this sweet story with the interactions between King and Queen and their beloved hobbits. Loved the story of Frodo and his stuffed mushrooms too. :)|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: One of my Frodo's culinary specialties was stuffed mushrooms! They made their earliest appearances in "Frodo's Cooking Lessons"!

|Aragorn gave a roguish grin. "There were no rules set down," he said, "so I do not suppose cheating even comes into it."|
That is true! Aragorn and Arwen found a very clever way to obtain all the information they needed. And I am quite sure they learned many other interesting things about the four hobbits in their conversations ;-)
Author Reply: Of course they did! But they did forfeit the second part: to say which they liked best!

|Perfect! And they did manage to get away with not putting anyone first, didn't they? Heh! Love the recipe, of course.|
Author Reply: I'm not sure they "got away" without saying whose was best; I'm sure the hobbits will tease their King and Queen about failing to answer!
