To Tell a Tale  by Lindelea 7 Review(s)

Poor Merry! I've never had a migraine headache, I'm thankful to say, but I'm told they are horrible to endure. Thank goodness Pippin was there to keep an eye on him! Frodo must have gotten pretty concerned himself when he learned what was going on. Pippin did a good job of telling the story of that previous day.

BTW, is the flashback sequence of this chapter set on the day that Frodo first gets up, or on the day of the Council? I'm kind of having a hard time determining just when the events of that flashback take place in Rivdendell. I'm assuming that Merry is well enough to attend the feast if it's set on the day that Frodo first awakens, or else well enough to talk over things with the other hobbits later in the day, if it's on the day of the Council. (If I'm wrong on both counts, by all means, enlighten me! =))

Wonderful, Anso! Yes, Pip grows up a lot on the Quest and it's a good thing for Merry that he does. :)

I've enjoyed this story as much the second tme around as the first. I was thinking of nominating this, if you think that's okay? Personally, I loved the works of every contributor and I truly feel it's worthy. Let me know if it's all right.

Nicely done, ansothehobbit. Pippin telling a story from Rivendell brings a little variety, and who would read about Pippin healing that wouldn't also enjoy Merry healing? :)

Yes, caring for one another is what cousins do best, I think. Lovely again.

I love the twist of having Pippin tell a story about a sick Merry. And I feel for Merry - headaches like that are absolutely horrible!

it was good to be a hobbit in Rivendell, and to have cousins and friends who loved you and looked out for you when you didn't have the wits to do it yourself.

It sure is. Glad to see that Pippin is up to telling a tale in return! Happy Yule everyone!
