Also, leave it to Gandalf to confuse the sick person...

Author Reply: I think Gandalf truly enjoys speaking in riddles! :)

His young brother. :-) Only Elves could think that about a 90-ish year old...

Author Reply: Isn't that a fun idea? How young and reckless Elves must look upon all mortals, including their very special foster brother.

A lovely chapter. Aragorn will have trouble resting as much as he should, I'm sure.

I loved all the questions from the hobbits :-)

Author Reply: Thanks, Pearl. These particular hobbits are rather unquenchable when it comes to getting information out of folks (such as wizards or elves) who have information that interests them! :)

Love your chapter title, here! And Frodo's lovely dream... :) And so nice for Aragorn to wake to find Frodo sleeping by him, holding his hand.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Thank you. It's always a challenge to think up good chapter titles!

A delightful chapter.It is good to see Frodo comforting Aragorn and Aragorn feeling a little better.

Author Reply: I like the idea of hobbits comforting the Big Folk for a change. Glad you're enjoying this! :)

I'm going to join the swooning hoardes here. Yep. You probably have NO idea how much I yearn for Gandalf comforting Aragorn, and yet it's something we rarely see. So for Gandalf to be there offering the drink and gentle reassurances... I am in heaven. :) I wish there could be chapters and chapters of it!

And oh my ... Aragorn lying there with tangled hair---I think maybe it needs a good brushing sometime, preferably by someone knowledgeable about brushing foothair, hee. Truly, adorable to have Frodo there lying curled up against him.

I LOVED Frodo's dream! I want to join him for breakfast in that barrel---it sounds terribly entertaining. And as always, your hobbity banter is so enjoyable.

Gosh, I adored this thought-provoking chapter!

Author Reply: Awwww, thanks, Lily. I'm already plotting the next banter-filled chapter, wheee.

I love Gandalf as caregiver too, although that frustrating wizard just can't seem to learn to answer simple questions with simple answers. Poor Aragorn is going to remain a bit confused for awhile longer, I'm afraid.

I think we'll have to do something about that tangled hair... maybe a nice bath...

I think the thing I liked best about this chapter was the 'flashbacks' and dreams and such that assailed / comforted / hurt the characters. Well thought out.

By the way, I'm ready for that massage from Elrohir any time - well, no, I'd probably faint... drat!

And the 'creaky elderly relation' phrase was priceless!

I can just imagine what a merry meal it was...

And Frodo and Pip's reassurances for Elrohir.

Nicely done chapter...

Author Reply: An Elvish massage! Let's all get in line...

Thank you for your lovely comments.

Another wonderful chapter, filled with love and comfort (your specialty :)) Elrohir's thoughts at the end were very moving. It's almost hard to imagine in this day and age, when we can communicate with each other instantaneously, how dreadful the waiting for news must have been.

Author Reply: It really must have been. And although Elrond had 'foresight', "even the wise cannot see all ends". The fate of Middle-earth hung by a thread while small hands did what they could.

Thank you very much. :)

I just read this, before breakfast, and now I am craving bacon and eggs, LOL! Very nice chapter... sweet.

Author Reply: Thank you. Nothing but the best for our hobbits. :)
