Out of All Knowledge  by Budgielover 131 Review(s)
LKKReviewed Chapter: 15 on 4/27/2004
A most satisfying end to a nightmarish story, Budgielover. Peace finally reigns in Rivendell now that the shard is out and Frodo is going to recover. But I can't help but shudder at Merry's ending words. Weíll be home soon. As soon as Frodo is strong enough to travel, we can go homeÖ Our part in this is finished, and Iím glad of it. We can all of us go home. I almost wish I had never read the rest of FOTR. I know what's going to happen. :(

Great story! Thank you for posting it. :)

I have just discovered your stories, and I just had to post a review and tell you how wonderful they ALL are! Being an elf lover myself, I have overlooked hobbit-centered stories, but you drew me in and boy, was I hooked! This one in particular....hey, I knew what was going to happen with Frodo, but the added details were absolutely riveting! Your portrayal of the strong loving relationship between the hobbits is especially affecting, and I love the portrait of Elrond you've painted. He often seems so.....elvish and above everyone, and you've let that show through, but so much more also has been revealed of his character and emotions. I thank you for that...I've always thought that to be a caring father, those facets of his character had to be there somewhere. You don't often see them written about effectively. Thanks for a wonderful story! May you write many, many more!

Oh, *laughs*, I guess Aragorn's "ah, no" was not anything very serious. It did make me sad there that last thoughts of Merry's about going home as soon as Frodo was well enough and that their part is ended. If only that was true! Such a fun story! Thank you!

*sigh* This is nearly as bittersweet an ending as LOTR's. We know they don't get to go home . . . yet. This was beautifully written, and heartache and joy to read.

I feel sorry for Merry, knowing that he's not going to see his parents again for a long time. I'm glad that nothing terrible happened to Frodo in this chapter. Thank you for writing this!

Golly. You had me on the edge of my seat throught the whole tale, even though I knew how it would end.

Those poor folk all seem exhausted and, as a reader, I am too. So much excitement and angst. I enjoyed every sylable.

Wow! I don't know whether to be happy or sad that this story is finally done! :) I have so enjoyed reading about the missing three days! You did such a great job, your story will always be in my mind when I read that part of the books again! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

*Standing ovations from fliewatuet for this wonderful tale*

Wow, so it's over. Phew, that was a close call and so much more intense than the hints Tolkien left us about what happened during those days in Rivendell.

Thanks for writing and sharing,

Yay! That was a great story from start to finish!

PervincaReviewed Chapter: 15 on 4/20/2004
Wow, I never thought I'd see anyone able to fill that space in the story with so many wonderful chapters! Poor Frodo went through a bit of a trial, but Sam, Merry, Pippin and Bilbo probably went through worse, not knowing if Frodo was going to make it. It was wonderful to read such a touching story that detailed their pain. Thank you for writing this :)
