|A Conspiracy of Hobbits by Dreamflower||2 Review(s)|
|Gryffinjack||Reviewed Chapter: 9 on 11/4/2005|
|This chapter was a joy to read. Watching the relationship between Pippin and Freddy change and the friendship between them forge - I love the way Freddy handles Pippin and is stronger than he normally would be. And I'm glad we get to see Pippin's sensitive side again in here. |
There's such a sense of urgency to this entire story that it is quite compelling even though we know how things are going to turn out.
Author Reply: Pippin's been *around* Fatty most of his life, but he's always fallen for the older hobbit's amiable and slightly vapid alter-ego. (If you must know I was kind of thinking of such literary favorites of mine as Albert Campion and Lord Peter Wimsey, who hid their intelligence by acting like silly stereo-typical upper class twits.) But Pippin's seen behind the mask now, and knows he can count on Fatty in a way that he had not realized before that he could.
And Freddy knows that he can show his strength and intelligence, since Pippin has already penetrated his disguise.
I am glad that the urgency comes through. It is amazing to me when I read fanfics that I can get caught up in the plot, even though I *know* the way it turns out already.

|Pippin's grounded for life, huh? hehehe Love that fierce determination! :-)|
Author Reply: Well, it probably feels that way. Paladin and Eglantine just want him at home for a while. ( He kind of might have neglected to ask permission before he went from Bag End to Brandy Hall. ) 8-)
