Reviews for The Care and Feeding of Hobbits
tailysnaily chapter 12 . 3/20
i think this is my favorite thing in on earth, middle or otherwise
LadyTeldra chapter 7 . 12/8/2016
I've read this before and I'll read it again even if I know it'll lead to tears eventually. These are the moments that show why Boromir would die for them, beyond the shame of breaking an oath. Why he'd fight past the pain of one arrow, much less three. And in the book it merely says many.

It's amazing. And heartbreaking. Half the hobbits have a completely different view of Boromir. Two see one who saved and played and taught them. Two see someone who fell to the ring. Though, Frodo may have changed his opinion after he himself fell to its influence in the end.

This fic is sooo heart warming. Thank you :-)
Rebell chapter 12 . 4/7/2016
Ahhhh, this is so lovely! I adore Boromir and his hobbits even at the worst of times, and so this was like rolling around in utter joy.

Dear sweet greatness - this is glorious! There is definitely not enough friendship fics out there in the LOTR fanfic realm, but this here is GOLDEN. Kudos to you - I can't wait to read more!

I think this is one of the best chapters yet- it really showcases the difference between Boromir, who was always pessimistic, or realistic, and the hobbits. Although I would shift this to a couple days after they arrive in Lorien, since Frodo at least definitely was not up to this level of celebration of Gandalf's death the first night.

wow, it takes serious talent to turn haircuts into an adorable fic! And your lessons of hobbit social rules fit in there perfectly. I love how they live by the rules, but also don't at times (interacting with Sam, for example). And the fact NOBODY wants Pippin to have the scissors:D

My head hurts...

I think JRRT never goes into enough detail about Boromir and other Men's reaction to the hobbits. So joyful, when Men have been in a warrior mindset for generations. Even waking one up is different! Thanks for writing this!
Brievel chapter 12 . 4/10/2015
I think this was my favorite chapter of this entire priceless story. :)

Light on the Horizon chapter 12 . 9/18/2014
Fantastic story!
Eregnar chapter 8 . 4/30/2014
I will treasure the mental image of Gandalf playing with tiny Pippin for a long time.

The Hobbits' reaction to grief reminds me of the funerals I've been to with my church family. Other denominations hold funerals, with speeches and rituals and tears, and we have all of that too, but more than anything, Quaker funerals, at least in my Yearly Meeting, are a celebration of life. It goes very well towards helping the healing process, gathering for a meal to talk and laugh, and remember our loved ones with joy, and look forward to seeing them again.
