O The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night  by Lindelea 4 Review(s)

Ferdi is still my hero. Even knee-high to a grasshopper, he's still saving his cousins!

Author Reply: Ah, yes, he showed his quality even early on. Reminds me of JRRT's assertion that deep in the heart of even the most timid hobbit is a core of courage, or something to that effect. He's a combination of Tookish boldness and Bolgerish good sense.

Poor, poor lads! Well, at least Merry isn't alone, and Ferdi has all a Hobbit's expected ability to care and comfort as he can.

As for slipping something into Frodo's drink--Bilbo, you caring, frustrating HOBBIT!

Author Reply: Ah, Bilbo. Wise old hobbit. What would Frodo do, stumbling around in the dark? He'll be all the better for the rest. At least, it is to be hoped.

Exhaustion would seem to be a good incentive for sleep but it doesn't always work. Good work Ferdi!

Author Reply: Yes, I wish it would work for me! It's nearly midnight and I cannot seem to find sleep.

Oh, poor little Ferdi! But they are as safe as they are going to be now, and at least the poor baby's not wandering about alone.

And oh, Frodo--yes, he's going to be so worried about Merry! I can seem him thinking about Merry shivering as he is...

Author Reply: Yes, the thought of a hobbit tot poking around a dark wood gives me the shivers, too. Sure glad that morning comes in the next chapter. Now just need to find the time to type it in. Thanks!
