Biography:   I have been a LOTR fan since my 14th birthday (1/12/77). I spent hours as a teenager and college student wondering about what went on beyond what was written in the books. I even wrote a few things down, but had no idea that there could be such a thing as fan fiction. Early on my favorite character was Merry. I identified with him. As I've gotten older, my interest has shifted to Pippin. I still like Merry, but the biggest part of my fandom heart is given to Pippin. I wrote my first official story last year, and I hope to keep writing them as the muses strike.
bullet Completion by Garnet Took Last Updated: 11/2/2014
The final story in the series of stories about Pippin and Diamond and their efforts to grow their family. This story follows "Of Difficulties and Delicate Situations" and "To Have or Have Not". It is highly recommended that you have read at least the last chapter of that story to understand this one.
