Nope...never heard of anyone who asked so many questions... :-P

Lemon in water, lemon in tea...sounds good to me! And bunk beds -- of course Gimli could think of something like that...

Author Reply: Good old Gimli. :)

“What’s wrong, Mr. Frodo?” Sam asked.

“Nothing,” Frodo smiled. “Sorry, Sam. I know you wouldn’t put any lemon in here.”

“In tea!” Sam said with delight. “Sir, what a wonderful idea!”


Very well done!

Yes, it is best that Merry and Pippin take the upper bunk.

Author Reply: Dear Sam. Once he's fixated on something, there's no getting around it! :)

adgjskjgksjksaj at the idea of Aragorn being too dizzy to even stand up on his own and needing to be carried---love it!!!! Love it, love it.

And hobbits in bunkbeds! What a fine idea. Though knowing hobbits, they'll probably still all be sleeping in one bed together.

This was such an enjoyable chapter---and pssshawww on Frodo for disliking lemons, too. He's so funny here. :)

Author Reply: If I can't give you convulsive vomiting, I can at least give you weak and dizzy! :)

Sam appreciates lemons as much as I do, but his master is drawing the line at these particular "foreign foods". What fun.

Lemon water sounds good. Do you suppose there is any room left in that tent for me. I don't mind sharing with Estel!

Author Reply: I think we should all get to stay in that tent. I'll have Gimli get to work on expanding it!

Well! I'm the worst reviewer on earth.

Aragorn: Yes, you are.

Shush. Oh, that's not real Aragorn, that's only the muse!Aragorn. I brought him back after suffering from angsty relapses from With Hope and Without Hope... not a fic for the faint of heart, mind you! He frequented my reviews back when I was younger (you are likely laughing at this point, aren't you? ;P) and I thought that he needed to appear once more.

Aragorn: You're babbling. Get on with the story.

Right, right. Well, the whole premise is, of course, fantastic! Aragorn falling ill because he's overworked himself. I love it.

Aragorn: You would.

Yes, I would. Anyways, there is nothing that I don't love- Gimli's ingenious with the bunk beds, Aragorn's confusion, the hobbits and their ultimate cuddliness... oh, it's all perfect! I want to live in your Middle-earth. Even in sickness everything would be fluffy and adorable :)

I'll be down your way very soon for the Comic Con. Tolkien-related panels are on the rise again! I can't wait for the Hobbit, when they come out in full bloom :)

Can't wait until you continue this, of course!


Author Reply: Thank you, Suvi. Yes, "my" Middle-earth is distressingly fluffy and adorable, but that's what makes me happy. :)

I might brave the Comic Con throngs again in a year or two, once The Hobbit is back on the radar.

I don't know how I missed this chapter - this is such a delightful tale - I really would hate it if I failed to complete the reading...

I laughed so much during this chapter... really fun - and dear Gimli and the bed and poor Aragorn and dearest Pip guarding...

And I really ROTFL with the last lines....

Thank you for such a nice way to end the day......

Author Reply: Thank you so much! It was such fun finding all the humor in this situation. :)

Poor Aragorn. It's not fun when you're so out of it that you're badly confused. Been there myself a couple of times. However, he's in the best of hands w/his brothers and the hobbits by his side.

So...Gimli's the one who invented the bunkbed? How very clever of him. ;o) Loved Pippin realizing why he was so uneasy about the top bunk and why. Yet another example of how the events of the War changed and matured our favourite Took.

I do hope that Frodo changes his mind about Lemon Water eventually. There's nothing more refreshing than Lemonade on a hot sweltering day. We have Raspberry Lemonade available up here in Canada. At least in my region of Canada. So very, very good. Sam's realization that Lemon in Tea would be an excellent idea is priceless. :oD

So...Now that Aragorn's a wee bit better, the real battle will begin. To keep that stubborn Dunadan in bed!!

As always, very much looking forward to the next chapter. :o)

Author Reply: Mmmm, I absolutely love raspberry lemonade (and raspberry iced tea). Maybe those are the combinations Frodo needs to try someday!

Thank you so much, Tigger. :)

"I thought you were asleep, Master Took.”

“How could I guard you if I was asleep?”

“Guard me?”

:) Love the innocence of Pippin indeed guarding his king, even if asleep on his chest.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: I'm rather charmed by that image, as well. Whatever their rank or responsibility, hobbits will be hobbits. :)

Wonderful chapter, made me smile and chuckle.
I love the sense of humour, and admire the way you capture it with the dialogue.
Keep them coming please.

Author Reply: What a lovely compliment, thank you. :)
