Where the Love-light Gleams  by Lindelea 5 Review(s)

Oh dear! Poor Ferdi! I certainly called the "it pours" part right--literally!

I love that his concern is to get back in time to keep Pippin from coming out and searching for him. Once more we see the way hobbits in general tend to always think of others first.

And I am very curious to see what happens next.

Author Reply: It pours indeed, and in more ways than one...

Ferdi just can't win sometimes, can he? First wild dogs then one on the inside of his hoped-for refuge. Soemhow I don't think he's going to get a kind welcome there.

Thanks for the quick update.


Author Reply: Well, if it were up to the dog, he probably wouldn't. LOL!

(The dog is modeled on one I used to know and love... *g* and just as crotchety)

Heh. Oatley reminds me of family stories about my maternal grandfather, except he would've talked a tin ear off about the virtues of mules, rather than pigs;o)
I'm glad to see another story about Ferdi, but uh-oh. I hope that big dog's bark is worse than his bite.

Author Reply: LOL, virtues of mules! Lovely!

I do think the dog's bite is as bad as his bark, or perhaps worse, but all he needs is a firm hand.

He's very much modeled after the dog my dh brought home from the Humane Society when we moved into an inner urban neighbourhood and dh had a job that took him away from home some nights.

Very vicious in appearance, and I had no doubt he'd rip chunks off of anyone who tried to get in the house when dh was gone. Fiercely loyal and protective of his family, though.

Funny how I miss the old brute.

Oh, dear! Poor Ferdi! Maybe if he is lucky, the owner of the hut owns all of those loose dogs, and can round them up! How very nice that he is as much worried about what the folks at home will think as he is about himself. Do go on, this is getting good!

Author Reply: Oops, missed replying to this.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Aha--a Grip in the Northfarthing, eh? Poor Ferdi, bad luck appears to be raining down on him, along with the overflow from the clouds. What a way to spend the turning of the year.

Author Reply: This is really strange. I see you've written lots of reviews for this story, but I don't see any author replies. Did I reply, and did the replies get lost when the story was accidentally deleted during site maintenance? Or was I really that rude?

Looking forward to the visit!
