And Merry thinks he's in shock now? At least he's being prepared as gently as Frodo can for the full truth! Heh!

Okay, there's something very hobbity about this whole thing. There's Rosie coming up with all the practical solution and her and Sam just kinda keepin' on keepin' on. maybe it's cause I'm still waiting for the coffee to brew, but this is really giving me a chuckle. Lindorien

This is a very interesting twist to Frodo's life story. It makes perfect sense of course, following up on Gandalf's thought that he would become like a clear glass, visible for those with eyes to see (or whatever exactly he said). Frodo seems to be remarkably calm about the whole thing. I certainly do feel for Rosie, walking in to find a headless Frodo, lol. I can't wait to read more!

Author Reply: Yes, that "clear glass" thought was the seed for this story.

Frodo is awfully calm, isn't he? Perhaps he's in shock, or hasn't taken it all in, or the implications haven't hit him yet, or else he's been through so much that this seems minor by comparison...

Thanks for commenting!

Poor Frodo. This is probably more difficult to deal with than the usual physical decline - how on earth can anyone copy with invisibility?

Merry must be completely shattered. And goodness knows how Pippin will react.

And as a long term problem - how can he carry on as Master of Bag End? How can he 'leave' his property to Sam? Two witnesses - yes - Merry and Pippin - but where would he find the other five? How can he be 'dead' or 'gone' and yet be there at the same time? So many questions.

Frodo needs a resolution, a happy ending - and yet there just isn't one. A tragic character.

Author Reply: Well, don't give up quite yet. I'm a sucker for a happy ending, as you know. Though there's none in sight at the moment...

(sorry about that bad pun)
