O The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night  by Lindelea 3 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 13 on 10/12/2007
Poor little lad. At least he managed to protect Merry and save him from the fox. Hobbit lads are so small, after all, and could easily be seen as vulnerable; but obviously even very small ones are handy with thrown stones! Marvelous save!

Author Reply: Little boys around here seem to be throwing stones all the time, and I imagine hobbit lads are no exception. Practice makes perfect!

Oh, poor wee Ferdi, so fiercely defending his older cousin--with a hobbit's natural weapon of course! And oh, that Merry--he started this tale with no knowing how it ended!! Hardly fair, was it?

I can just see tiny Ferdi trying to find help...such a brave baby! No wonder he grew up to be such a good hunter!

Author Reply: LOL! IIRC (and I might be wrong--wouldn't that be embarrassing, with my own story), it was Ferdi who began by excoriating (don't know if that's the right word to use, but it's somehow satisfying) Merry for leading his littler cousins into nasty uncomfortable adventures, and I think he was the one who narrowed down the guesses to this particular adventure.

I could be wrong, though, as there is a dog standing (standing? quivering, dancing, etc.) nearby holding her leash in her mouth as if it is some sort of exciting pirate treasure.

Must go.

‘The little ones will never get to sleep at this rate,’ Pippin said lightly. ‘You’ve got them all stirred up and imagining the worst sort of imaginings.’

I am glad to be classed as one of the little ones. But please do tell the Muse that she isn't being any good for the state of my heart health!

Author Reply: I will tell the Muse to have some consideration for the little ones who are listening. Thanks!
