Oh, for heaven's sake!

Only you, Sam.

I needed a Budgie tale tonight and this one fit the bill! You know the best thing about stepping away from fandom for a while? Having new Budgielover stories to read when I come back! ;)

“And,” Gandalf continued softly, his voice oddly gravelly as his gaze swept over the smaller forms of the sleeping hobbits, “once they take possession of your heart, they never give it back.”

:) *hugs*

This is so funny and precious and cute. I love it.

This is hilarious! Poor Gandalf never got a word in edgewise. No one does hobbit humor like you... their voices were so well done and I could almost see the scene playing out before me eyes.

“once they take possession of your heart, they never give it back.”

That's so very true! I'm one of their "victims" ;-)

While Gandalf was trying to tell his story I waited for him to explode any moment. Sometimes hobbits can be VERY disrespectful AND cheeky! But it is clearly seen that Gandalf loves his hobbits.

Thank you for this wonderful series!

“I had never heard you tell that tale. It varies slightly from the one our friend Bilbo tells.” The darkness hid Aragorn’s features, but the wizard could hear the smile in his voice.

*echoing Aragorn's smile* I am not sure that we have really heard Gandalf's version of that tale even now. But his realisations about the hobbits are sooooo true.

He told a story? I didn't hear the Wizard tell ANYTHING! That wasn't a story--it was a single, prolonged interruption, and the toffees failed to glue mouths shut long enough to allow anything! And it's obvious both Gandalf and Aragorn are both besotted with Hobbits! Heh!

I love how, in all of your stories, you portray Frodo as the hobbit-in-charge, always aware of the younger hobbits' concerns, and how his cousins are behaving (or mis-behaving).

It's pleasant to think that even on the quest, the hobbits occasionally had enough to eat.

I was just re-reading this story recently, so I'm especially glad to see the final chapter -- though not glad it *is* the final chapter! I wouldn't mind a second round of chapters from the Big People's points of view. [And while you're working on in-progress stories, there's also "Getting to Know You."]

A sincere thank you for all these years of hobbit-centric tales!
