Masterfully executed, as usual. You go from pathos to humour to slight increase of tension so smoothly... Great job! Looking forward to more.

I really enjoy your stories! I am glad I found them. Especially this one. I have always wanted to know what happened during those missing three days! I really like Recovery in Rivendell too. Please update this one soon! I can't wait to see how you finish it!

I liked how all of the diners were balming Aragorn for starving the hobbits! lol, priceless. I like how you wrote about them getting a tour of the House of Rivendell and leaving thoroughly charmed elves behind them! Was the man with the black beard Boromir? I wouldn't think he would make them sherk away like that, but who knows. Looking forward to more! thank you!

FF.N is (oh so oddly) being impossible, so you get the review here! ;)

Rarely have I giggled so wildly as when Merry and Pippin were winning every elf in Imladris over to their side! A sweet moment in an otherwise anxious, sad story--I loved it!

Waiting impatiently for the next chapter of this, and even moreso for the next bit of Renewal in Rivendell.

Hmm....having hobbits around is liking having an adorable younger sibling who can do no wrong. :-) I love the unfairness of it all. Poor Aragorn. I also liked the utter lack of presumption on the part of the hobbits - that a mighty council was being held and they just want to go home.

Oh, the Hobbits do know how to exploit their charme! I do not envy Aragorn at being at the receiving end of all those accusing glares that he has not properly fed the poor Hobbits during their journey to Rivendell. That was such a nasty thing for him to do;-)

But other than a clearly uncomfortable Aragorn, I thoroughly enjoyed the stomach-grumbling contest between Merry and Pippin in the morning. ... loud moaning growl that sounded like he had swallowed a cat was my absolute favourite *grin*.

BTW I also follow Shirebound's 'By Chance or Purpose', and I really love the slightly different takes at what happens during those days in Rivendell that are portrayed in both stories.

Oh, that bittersweet passage about Aragorn never having seen the hobbits eat to their hearts content before. But then... "They looked utterly angelic, even to Aragorn who knew better." Omigosh, everyone thought Aragorn had been deliberately starving the poor little ones! LOVE IT!
