I love Bilbo as scribe. :) When I can't sleep and have at long last given up tossing and turning, I get up to read. I fear if I wrote, I would just keep going and going and lose too much sleep and not be in good shape in the morning, for I owe, I owe, it's off to work I go... I'd rather be writing, but oh well. The day will come!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: I used to get up and write before we moved; I had a separate room for my computer where I could close the door and write. But in the small house where we live now, I would end up waking everyone up.

So now I just try to write in my head.

Poor Lotho! His story is really a sad one.

To his defense one could add that from the moment on, Saruman arrived and spoke to the people present all of them, hobbits and men, fell under the spell of Saruman's Voice. They would have done everything he asked of them.
Only when Lotho had been alone for some time he began to doubt Saruman's orders.

Author Reply: Yes, it is sad.

But the problem is, Lotho was already ready to fall under Saruman's spell. He was greedy and selfish, and had been doing lots of nefarious things before the fallen wizard ever showed up in the Shire.

Once Saruman arrived, of course, he was irresistible.

So the Prancing Pony is THE Inn and Gandalf is somehow "responsible" for the whole affair! *grins* I like that very much :-)

Author Reply: Well, yes!

I'm so glad you liked it. My very first thought at the prompt was JRRT's poem about the MitM eating and drinking too much ("full moon", LOL!), and then the part about dreams in the Bronte quote made me think of the Man in the Moon's dream garden in Roverandom.

And of course, when I can't have hobbits, then I want to have Gandalf!

Poor Lotho--the seeds of his destruction were sown so early in his life when he consistently chose selfishness over any other motivation. As for his end--(SHUDDERS)!

Author Reply: His end was as the Professor saw it: he reaped what he sowed. I would not wish his end on anyone, but then often consequences are far worse than what can be anticipated.

That said, in his rise, I hope you appreciated certain parallels to RL.

I like the contrast between the reactions to Olorin between the two dogs--"He's kind" and "He tells wonderful stories." And I so love how you wove the two worlds together here. Lovely visit by our favorite Wizard!

Author Reply: Yes, each little dog has its own personality. Roverandom is more thoughtful, and Moon-Rover is more interested in the moment.

How could Gandalf not be friends with the Man-in-the-Moon? ;-)

Oh, what a delightful little gem of a story! I love the story of Roverandom,and you tied all of the stories together just beautifully. I quite agree that Roverandom and the hobbits would have gotten along together splendidly!

Author Reply: Thank you, Lyana! I just love Roverandom, too, and this is my second story about him. The other one is "Little Dogs Laughed" also here at SoA.

I think the thing that ties the two stories together is JRRT's children. Without them as his sounding board, many of his more delightful tales might not exist.
