Crown of Laurel  by Lyta Padfoot 3 Review(s)

Laughing with delight!

I have only time for one chapter, for it is late, but what a lovely beginning. I love your wedding traditions! And your characterisations sound so hobbity. Very nice. Looking forward to more.

This is lovely! Your attention to detail (such as the history of the cup, and how Diamond thought of it) is amazing. Will you be giving the ceremony from Pippin's POV as well?

Author Reply: Not from Pippin's point of view, future chapters will be from either Diamond or her cousin Lavender's POV. I had the next chapter all ready... and then a much better style popped into mind. It flows much better and is considerably funnier. I'm hoping to have it up by Sunday at the latest. There are 3-4 chapters total for this story.

Love your wedding ceremony! I am enjoying this very much and look forward to Merry's attempt to kiss the bride! Anxiously awaiting more.

Author Reply: Thank you! I worked hard to come up with an interesting ceremony - its loosely based on Ancient ceremonies and the idea that hobbits would want to get to the food quickly ;) The 'catching' of the bride and groom (its fair game on BOTH) resulted from reading about medieval weddings of nobles were they had a bedding ceremony. Couldn't imagine hobbits going quite that far, but I imagined they had some tradition to embarrass the newly weds. Of course, Pippin and Diamond are fully aware of this tradition and plan accordingly…
