It was good to weep out all of the griefs

Wonderfully said!

To Frodo Nienna's "gift" might very well be the most important of all. She gave him back the ability to weep and thus get rid of all his grief - healing indeed!

Thank you!

Author Reply: He's now regaining the ability to feel fully again, and to deal with those feelings appropriately. And we do need to let our pains go, as he can finally do.

And thank you so, Andrea!

What a wonderful chapter, surrounded by such loving care! I love Nienna's TLC the most. In fact I love this so much, I'm going to post it on my 'cheerful' blog ( because it's so neat! Hope you don't mind. I will credit you, of course. I would love to see this expanded.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: No, I don't mind at all. And this is inspired by my longer story "Judgement and Healing." Am glad you enjoyed this drabble. Thanks so, Antane!

"Not all tears are an evil!"....Lovely Larner.

Author Reply: No, in this case they were signs of a great good as what remained of the taint of the Ring was washed away, as well as the great scar on Frodo's spirit left by Its effects on him being loosened and him finding that once again he can begin to live fully again.

Thanks so very much, Harrowcat!

For the Powers to allow Frodo and Bilbo to sail West, they must have taken very good care of them once they arrived. For Bilbo to live long enough to see his lad healed is lovely.

Author Reply: I really don't believe that Bilbo would have gone on until he was pretty certain that Frodo was indeed on the road to recovery himself. And I strongly suspect that indeed the Valar took a personal interest in seeing Frodo find his own peace. After all, they've not had a good deal of face-to-face experience with mortals as yet--he must be fascinating to them.
