Hmmmm. Very interesting concept. I shall read further - but first I want to go and read the 'beginning' - Clear Shot.

Author Reply: I think you'll find Claudia's idea a very fascinating idea for an AU!

I love your portrayal of their reunion!

How could all of them allow Frodo, so innocent of the world, so small and helpless, to undertake a task of such peril--especially since Boromir was still not convinced that it was the only solution?

I think the previous meeting lends credence to Boromir's thought-process in another solution.

I also like how you always portray Merry as Frodo's protector.

This is off to a great start!

Author Reply: Thanks! I figured it would be just a bit of a shock to see one another there!

Merry--and Sam--always see themselves as Frodo's protectors. So does Pippin, for that matter. Merry is the most open about it; Sam is a bit more diffident in expressing it, because of social status. Pippin is young, and tends not to say a lot about protecting his older cousins; he simply acts when the need is there.

I do hope you enjoy it!

Interesting to think that perhaps Frodo and Boromir might have had such an introduction between them. Now to see how it works out.

Author Reply: Yes, it would have been quite a shock to see one another across the Council table!

Wow, what a captivating plot, Dreamflower!

I don't know Claudia's story - yet, that is ;-)
But it seems it ended long before Frodo left the Shire with the Ring. So, there's much space left for speculations!

I loved your description of Merry and Sam through Boromir's eyes. Both are protecting Frodo, but in different ways. Merry does it more openly, even challenging (I'd like to see that), whereas Sam operates from the background.

I'm looking forward to reading more!

Author Reply: Yes, "Clear Shot" took place when Frodo was in his late tweens, and Bilbo was still in the Shire.

Both of them are very protective of Frodo. But Sam has learned to keep a low profile as a working class hobbit, while Merry is a Brandybuck!

I should have the next chapter up very soon.
