Quick thinking there on Farry's part, I must say. He's lucky that Sandy didn't grill him then and there!

Author Reply: Very lucky! (Does he have the luck of the Tooks, I wonder?)

LOL! Poor Farry. But he certainly has the quick wits of his father, to think up a plausible tale on the spot!

Author Reply: Quick wits, indeed! I think this lad will be a force to reckon with. :)

Lucky he had that apple handy! :)

Author Reply: Sure was! Quick-thinking, mixed with luck, now who else do we know who fits that description...?

Oh, I remember when at the age of seven I was planning to run away. I had the doll's suitcase packed, but nothing for myself. I was certain I'd meet somone who'd take me in and provide for me, but I'd have to provide for my doll, of course. Child's logic is always interesting!

Author Reply: Yes, children's brains seem to be quite differently wired, at least the logic circuits.

I really liked this chapter.

Faramir is acting so grown-up here. He also knows the mind of a runaway so, hopefully, he can keep her from taking off or he can show her that it's not in her best interests to try to run to Gondor.

I think I had a lot more thought out to say this morning but now, after a long day, I've forgot it.

Glad to see this one continuing.

Author Reply: Since he has run away himself, and seen terrible repercussions (and almost really horrible repercussions), he knows caution. He also knows Goldi well, and has a great deal of respect for her stubbornness.

I see that Faramir has inherited the 'sight' that Pippin demonstrated more than once on the Quest. He's a clever lad. This should be interesting! :)

Author Reply: It seemed plausible to me that Farry might have that Tookish trait. I certainly hope it is interesting! When I told Dinossiel the plot outline, she laughed, so that's a good sign.

Imagine, a hobbit setting off with no food in the middle of a storm! Good thing Farry was able to stop her, he seems quite wise for his age. I wonder how he's going to keep her from running away? Guess I'll have to wait a see.

Author Reply: Only an upset, determined 11-year-old, I suppose. I remember one of my brothers running away from home some time in the afternoon and changing his mind right about dinnertime...

Well, would you believe he's going to keep her from running away by helping her run away? Sometimes help is all you can offer in order to maintain some kind of control over a situation...

Author Reply: (or was that too much of a spoiler? aargh. sorry, if that's the case. but there is still a lot more to the plot than that little point...)

At least, we know from reading "The Tale of Years" that Pippin outlives Rose Gamgee, and then moves first to Rohan with Merry and then to Pippin.

Author Reply: Yes, it's good to be able to draw on that knowledge from "Tale of Years". I also have the advantage to be writing on a familiar timeline (to me), knowing that Pippin will not go through life a hopeless invalid, but will find unforeseen (miraculous?) healing not so many months from now.

Oh Faramir! You are a conniver worthy of your Uncle Merry and your father put together!

Author Reply: Absolutely! He has had both of their examples to learn from, not to mention his Uncle Ferdi as well.

Ah, poor Goldie. For all her adventurousness she's such gentle soul. I think, too, as a middle child, or neat the middle in such a large family, she sometimes feels lost in the crowd and now she's going to have to face a whole year almost without the attention of her parent. It's a good thing that someone is aware of her situation, even if he can't do much about it. I think this is really going to seal Farry and Goldie's relationship. He knows what she's going through, even if he hasn't had similar experiences. He's been through enough to be able to support her.

I really think that after this is done, they really can declare those two "off the market", if you know what I mean. :)

Sorry I'm not wording things as well as I'd like this morning. Late night, early dawn.

Author Reply: You know, I hadn't really thought out that "middle child" part, but you're right. And she really, really misses her Ellie, who seems to understand her best.

"Off the market" -- cute!
