|Another wonderful chapter! And more Merry interaction ^_^ always something I like, I loved the line Merry said about swooning to Pippin and when he handed Lily over to him he said, 'Here, hold this.' Very Merry. Poor and Diamond though... well update soon! Great job.|
Author Reply: I'm having a lot of fun with Merry in this story, and I'm glad you're liking how I write him. :D Thanks for the comments!

|I just found this story and read every chapter fearing the time when I would come to the end of one and not see that welcome Next link. Now that I've arrived I'm just as sad as I expected to be.|
I am very much enjoying this story and hope you will continue to write it and update often.
I feel so sorry for Diamond having to hide her relationship from everyone and my heart hurts for Pip. He's missing his love and mourning for children he thinks will never come.
Thanks for writing this. I can't wait to see what happens next!
Author Reply: Thanks so much for the feedback! :) Don't worry, Pippin and Diamond will be back together soon enough...

|Awww...poor Diamond :(. Lying to one's mother is never fun. I just hope that everything works out for them SOOON!!! And Merry should have made his own supper! lol just kidding :P |
Author Reply: I know, I hate lying to my parents. And I'm sure things will work out for Pippin and Diamond eventually, but I'm disinclined to say when... O:)
Hehe, Estella should take a day off and make the lads do all the domestic work! Though I'm sure they do help her out here and there... ;)

|All right, everyone together now: "Awww . . . *sob*"|
Another great chapter. And that first half was chock-full of good lines! "I don't know how they do it in Rohan, but knights of Gondor do not swoon." And, "Right again! And whose colors do we like best?"
Pippin snorted while Merry hurried to correct her, whispering, "Rohan."
But my favorite was, 'He set his daughter on Pippin's lap. "Here, hold this." He then walked out of the kitchen in search of his wife. ' "Here, hold this"? Only a guy could come up with a line like that! You nailed him.
The relationship between Diamond and her mother is interesting; I hope you're going to develop that soon. And I love the hobbit names -- they're perfectly "Tolkienish"!
Author Reply: Glad you liked those lines! I've had a lot of fun putting Merry and Pippin in a "family men" situation. And hopefully I'll have time to develop that mother/daughter relationship more.
I'm *very* glad you like the hobbit names! For me, thinking up a good name is probably the most difficult part of making a new character, especially with the hobbits. I mean, there are only so many decent flowers and jewels to choose from!
It's always great to hear from you, you leave wonderful feedback. :)

|I liked Lily saying her favorite colors were Gondor's! I guess Merry is going to have to work on her loyalties! :D Poor, Diamond maybe it isn't too late for her to speak to her mother, or at least for her mother to become more involved in her life! Looking forward to more, thank you!|
Author Reply: Hehe, Merry will have to work hard to turn her into a true child of Rohan. ;) Thanks for the feedback!

|Oh, this started out as such a happy chapter, and it ended so sadly! Not that it makes it bad, I just felt like crying at the end, like Diamond did. I hope you were telling the truth about the next chapter coming soon - I really want to see what happens next. (Of course, that's hardly any different to how I felt after the reading the rest of the chapters in this story :P)|
Author Reply: Thank you! Heh, I realized while I was writing the second half that it was going to be a happy-yet-depressing chapter...

|"and whose colours do we like best?"|
"gondor" haha! I do love lily, she's so sweet! but i hope you find someone who dianmond can talk to, she really has no-one when pip's not around. keep it up! ;)
Author Reply: I've had so much fun writing Lily, and I'm glad other people are enjoying her too. :D Thanks for your comments!

|Its always hard to keep secrets from family. So Diamond's mother suspects something... should start to complicate things. Diamond's birthday present and Merry's quip about swooning were hysterical. Lily is a real charmer.|
Author Reply: Oh, things will definitely get complicated soon. :D Thank you!

|Poor Diamond! I hope she and Pippin are together soon. I also hope she finds someone she can confide in as Pippin has his dear Merry. Diamond needs a friend. Waiting for more.|
Author Reply: She'll be confiding in someone in this next chapter, as you'll see. Also, Pippin and Diamond won't be apart very much after this. Ahem. O:) Thanks for the feedback!
