At Tharbad's Greenway Spring Faire  by Dreamflower 72 Review(s)

Frodo would never have pressed Sam to learn swimming. And luckily he was there at the right moment to save Sam from drowning. Now that Sam has changed his mind he might learn how to swim after all. If not from Frodo then maybe from Merry or Pippin.

As the Gaffer says, 'You won't go far when standing still.'

That is VERY true :-D

Author Reply: Actually, Sam does eventually learn (though not from Merry or Pippin) in my story "Up the Withywindle". But he never really practices it once he does learn. On the other hand, I believe that he allows Merry and Pippin to teach his own children the skill.

Indeed a good deal of trouble might have been averted had Sam learned how to swim, but all worked out well in the end, of course. I love Frodo for accepting Sam's decision without nagging at him.

Author Reply: Indeed, as you say!

Frodo would never nag or push Sam to do something he didn't truly wish to do. He's far too considerate of others to do that.

Hobbits and Wizards and Elves, oh my! Lovely to see our friends surviving to this day!

Author Reply: It is, isn't it? But that's the "Eucatastrophe-verse" for you!

Well done.

Author Reply: Thank you!

Love the quote! Unless I'm mistaken, it is quoted in our copy of Sense and Sensibility (the DVD), when the Colonel is reading to a recovering Marianne in his marvellous voice.

I had not seen the linked story before. I loved it! ...and this, though it makes me miss Fiondil and his modern-day stories.


Author Reply: I know. *sigh* I do miss him and them, too!

I do hope one day to complete the crossover begun in B2MeN 2012, and then you can see how the Third Age and the Modern Age do link together.

I love the thoughts that those from the Third Age are still with us. :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: So do I! *grin*

Good planning on the part of each. Hirluin is obviously in excellent hands, and all here exhibit good judgment and competence.

Author Reply: Mistress Beryl would be the first to tell you it's all just good plain "hobbit sense"! LOL!

I like Mistress Beryl, she's a great healer!
And I also like the inventiveness of the two cooks who solved the transport problem.

So, now there's a letter to write...

Author Reply: I have a fondness for hobbit healers.

I was trying to think what sort of thing might serve as a makeshift "gurney" for the hobbits to use on such a large patient, and a large worktable on wheels seemed just the ticket. Who better than cooks to suggest it?

Yes, and the letter will be coming very soon...

There is absolutely no need for embarrassment!

On the other hand, even in the early years when this tradition was still young, not all hobbits liked it very much ;-)

At least there will always be the Red Book for all those who ARE interested in their past. And they will see the worth of Bilbo, Frodo and Sam!

Author Reply: Exactly! You have hit the nail on the head on all counts!

Oh! That's so sad...

Author Reply: Sad, and yet bound to happen sooner or later...
