Beautiful story. Frodo (and the others too for sure) are very sympathic.
I like the way you describe the Haradrim

Dear Larner. I absolutely got captured once I found your stories. Cant put them down - so to say...
This little gem is like a little piece of mushroom found in the cream on top of a delightful desert prepared by Pippin :-)
Just a perfect way of showing your awsom talent of telling stories with more than a few layers of meanig. I Love it!
By the way, did you do anything more on the Southern Dunedains? I was very intrigued by this idea.
Thanks for brightening my days with your stories.
And thanks indeed for sharing them.

To all who read this. Please write a non romantic warm hearted Frodo and Sam friendship story or Merry and Pippin friendship story.

I can't tell you how pleasing I found this when I read it. It was lovely.

I love all of your version of the LOTR 'verse - this story's definitely in the top 10 favorite stories you've told me. Charming, and a smile when I desperately needed one.

I very much like the way the hobbits tell stories of Frodo here - one can see the beginning of him turning into legend. And the tone is just right, affectionate and very, very hobbity. Lovely little detail that they refer to Aragorn as "Lord Strider", a delightful mixture of respect and friendship.
Next comes a sweet scene between Gandalf and Frodo, with fond memories of Bilbo, which culminates in the beautiful image of Frodo sleeping under the tree. Gandalf's plea for teh dream is conveyed with such a subtle touch and I like the way the Valar appear.
And then the lucidity of the dream - ah, how I savour it every time I get one of them. It seems a bit odd that Frodo deducts so quickly where he is, but then, of course, he is dreaming and under the influence of the Valar.
The monkey! Great to see it make an appearance here. The custom you describe reminds me of the Scottish custom of firstfooting on Hogmanay (New Year) - bringing bread, salt, whiskey and coal. And I see now how the ficlet is just a scene from this story.
"Oh, how he’d loved to greet Sam to the first snow with a well-placed snowball!" Delightful sentence, and, ah, I can see it coming... Yes, Thwack! It's so charming how
This is an utterly delightful tale, full of warmth and empathy, I enjoyed it very much indeed.
