Keep Him Secret, Keep Him Safe  by shirebound 28 Review(s)

I've had this one on my 'wish to read' list for a while now and am glad to have a chance to begin it tonight. I like the idea of Frodo to the rescue. I do hope he is in time before the weather turns. In Aragorn's present state bad weather is not at all what he needs.

Author Reply: Frodo to the rescue! It *is* fun for it to be Aragorn as the one in need of rescue, isn't it? :)

Ohhhhhhhhh, this was NICE!!!

Dizzy, vomiting Aragorn...

Frodo, shouting Noro Lim to Roheryn, and Roheryn looking to his Master.

Beautiful countryside, good food, friendly banter....

I can't wait for the next chapter, but I'm going to make myself get some stuff done before I'm allowed... got to make it laaaaaaast!

Author Reply: "Dizzy, vomiting Aragorn..." *grins* That's just what Lilybaggins' plotbunny begged for! I'm so happy you're enjoying this. I'm sure having fun writing it.

Terrific intro to the story, shirebound! I particularly like this line:
Aragorn seemed to understand that hobbits oftentimes spoke lightly when their hearts were full.
Perfect understanding of hobbits. But I really hope Frodo hurries, for Aragorn's sake (and so his ride is short!).

Author Reply: Thank you! I think that over their long journey together, Aragorn would have grown to understand hobbits very well indeed.

Well Frodo is in guite a pickel, what to do, when the big guy goes down ill, and not a healer or hospital in sight. Love how Frodo wanted a horn to summon aid. Hope the horse puts on the brakes when it hets camp

Author Reply: Frodo's taking the only action he can think of. Ride, Roheryn, ride!

Oh, poor Aragorn and poor Frodo. :( Don't keep us hanging them - and us - over this cliff too long!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Sorry about the cliff, Antane! I'll do my best to get everyone safe and dry and on the road to recovery as soon as possible. :)

An ill Aragorn! What a novel idea! I mean, of course, there was Quarantined. But he seems to be invincible after he becomes king, which is silly. I mean...I'm not expressing myself very well. I think it may be because *looks* it's 2:30 did that happen? My point is that this is a great story idea, and I can't wait to see how it goes! Plus I'm thrilled that you still write, the rush of LotR fanfics seems to be slowing the more time passes after the movies. I love your stories, and I'm glad you haven't run out of inspiration! Plus, this fic promises a lot of Aragorn, my one true love. *looks around* I hope my boyfriend didn't hear that. :)

Can't wait for more. I swear I'll be more coherent next chapter. *hugs you*

Author Reply: Thank you, Lady Sandry. I'm thrilled that I still write, too! After each story I wonder if it was my last, and then... Well, so far so good. I've had to slow down my writing due to wrist problems, but hope to never have to stop entirely.

Glad you're enjoying this! Yes, even Aragorn needs tending once in awhile, poor dear. :)

*hugs you back*

LOL, I have to admit to some nervousness at those plot bunnies! A little Aragorn h/c is good though, and I look forward to seeing what you do with this.

Author Reply: Don't worry, this is a typical Shirebound story! All plot bunnies bow to my will but no puppies this time, alas. :)

Wow - what an incredible chapter. I loved the lightness of it and Aragorn and Frodo being able to have some time together - but especially that they had some time away from the hustle and bustle of what that HUGE camp must have been like...

But then for Aragorn to become so deathly ill... Needless to say, I'm grateful his stead accepted Frodo - and I do so hope that the Hobbit gets help in time. I don't like the thought of Aragorn alone in Ithilien so soon after the battle with no one to help if danger comes!


Author Reply: I agree, that camp must be quite a wild scene with boats, horses, supplies coming and going, all the men (wounded and unwounded), tents, kitchens... No wonder Frodo, after the quite Shire and months in the wilderness, can't quite cope with it yet.

Glad you're enjoying it, and thank you for reviewing!

What a good idea to turn the caregiving tables. What I think will be interesting about this story is seeing post-Quest Frodo in action, with all his hard-earned strength and wisdom. Can't wait for the next installment!

Author Reply: Frodo in action, with all his hard-earned strength and wisdom

I *like* how you say that! *grins*

Linda HoylandReviewed Chapter: 1 on 5/7/2008
What a great idea for a story! I always felt that Aragorn's labours must have taken a great toll on him and in my "Hidden Days of Healing" had him collapse soon after saving the Hobbits after the battle,but he's had superhuman strength at that time in all the stories I've read.

I wonder what is wrong with poor Aragorn here?

I'm greatly looking forward to seeing how Eomer and the Hobbits look after him. It is always a treat to find a new story from you.

Author Reply: Thank you, Linda. Yes, even the strongest reach their breaking point, but at least Aragorn is surrounded by friends and the best of care. I think it's important for the Small Folk to help tend the Big Folk once in awhile. :)

Author Reply: Linda, I just re-read your story. We definitely have a few similar ideas, as you'll see as mine unfolds. I really enjoyed re-visiting yours. :)
