Aww...arn't you a little matchmaker with all these hobbit couples! It's good to see Faramir anf Goldi finally married, it's taken long enough ;) I liked how Legolas and Gimli were at the wedding, that was a clever idea. Sorry to see this story end, but it was great anyways!

Author Reply: I know...I'm terrible. Always setting up as many characters as I can. You've read "Just to be With You", so you know how bad I can be! This one was probably even worse, lol!

It's kind of weird to have finished it. I mean, it's been a part of my life for so long - jotting down plot ideas for later chapters, trying to work out how to pair the two of them up...I don't know what to so with my time now, :P. Maybe I could study or something...

I loved this, especially the wedding ceremony. I meant to stop and review more often, but when I started reading tonight, I had so much to catch up on that I read it all in one try! LOLIt was well worth the two years that you spent on it as far as I'm concerned. I enjoyed every line. You have a lovely way with hobbits and I always enjoy your Sam and your Estella especially.

Author Reply: You read the entire thing in one go!? (Well, I suppose I read all 31 chapters of "Peregrin and Diamond" by Pearl Took in one sitting :P). I'm glad it didn't put you to sleep, lol. Thank you for letting me know I pulled Sam off - of all the hobbits, he's probably the one I work the most on. His manner is a little different or something...I'm sure you've noticed that too, because I think you write Sam very well! And as for Estella - well, Tolkien gave us so many character names to build upon. It would be a shame to waste them.

Thanks again! :D

I've been waiting and waiting for this to go from "in progress" to complete so I could read it. Lovely story, made me smile the whole time. Your Faramir is a hopeless romantic; I enjoyed the many little touches--especially having Strider makes an appearance and Legolas and Gimli at the wedding. ( Sometimes I get a little upset with JRRT for his ban on Big People in the Shire; makes it hard on those of us who like to see friends together.) 8-)

Author Reply: I understand who frustrating it can be waiting for an in-progress story to be updated - which is probably one reason that I enjoy your stories. You update quickly :) Not like me, lol. I'm really glad you enjoyed the story, and I'm sorry if I made you wait for too long (just pity the people who started reading this when I began it two years ago! Of course, I doubt any of them are still reading it :P). It was sad that I could not have Aragorn attend the wedding too. I had thought of holding the wedding just outside Buckland, but that was before I remembered that I had set the story three years before they actually married, and it would not work. I hope Legolas and Gimli made up for it though.

Thanks so much for your review! It's great to know you enjoy my stories, because I certainly enjoy yours :D

That was great! I loved how you set up all the differnet couples! There may be mroe weddings in the offind, yes? I was gald that Lily found someone as well. It was perfect the way it ended with Faramir and Goldi going back up to Bag End to, I presume, sneak off again. Thank you it was lots of fun!

Author Reply: No, thank you :P I have this terrible habbit of playing cupid when I write, and I don't think it's possible for me to write a story in which only one couple emerge. I don't know if I'll ever write about those other weddings, but you'd be right in assuming that all the couples featured in the story do eventually wed :P (at least in my bizaare little world they do). Once again, thanks very much for your lovely reviews and feedback. I appreciate it :)
