I just love Gimli, but I never have the nerve to try and write for him. You did a wonderful job. There aren't many stories on any of the sites that feature him as much more than a side character. This is a very welcome change.

Author Reply: Thank you so very much! I'd like to think that I kindof have an idea of how he would think about things, and I'm gratified that the story was convincing for you. I would love to read and write more from his POV.

Lovely, just lovely. Fits nicely within canon, too, despite the liberty of having help for Gimli to roll the troll off of Pippin.

Thank you for sharing your story!

Author Reply: Many thanks for your kind words! Yeah, I didn't wish to insult Gimli's strength by any means, but the dramatic effect was heightened somewhat by having a couple of others around for assistance. I'm a big fan of canon, but this is a creative enterprise, after all.

Thank you for reading it! More Gimli to come... :)

This is marvelous. What a wonderful expansion of such a short (yet important scene)!

"And Pippin. Where is he? Discovered once already beyond hope. Twice would be absurd."

Absurd, yes. But there is always hope...

Thank you for sharing this!

Author Reply: *smiles* Thank you for reading it! It is an important scene, and once I had found out that pretty much nobody else had written about it, at least not from Gimli's point of view, I knew I needed to do so.

Yes, there is always hope.
