The comparison of Pippin's eating habits to a field put a weird image in my head of a plague of Hobbits eating everything in sight in Exodus. The casual mention of Oin made me sad because I remembered that he is long dead by this point, yet his family don't know. I often forget that the other dwarves who went with Balin were dear friends of Gimli's family as well. I smiled when Arwen called Kaylee hina, which I think is sister, it shows how she's adopted Kaylee into her family. I liked that Jennifer's stick got done up Elven style.

Author Reply: LOL! Heaven forbid about Pippin leaving the table THAT bare! =)

It's true; they don't know yet that Oin is dead.

I'm glad you've liked this chapter! K.G.

I'm sorry! I seem to have skipped reviewing this chapter, but that doesn't mean I don't like it! :( I really loved this chapter, especially the discussion about how Joey had to learn to do more things to help the Company once they set out. I wonder how young children of the Dunedain would learn such things - and whether that differed for Aragorn, as Estel?

"Be Prepared" is of course the Girl Scout (and Boy Scout, I believe) motto, but its inclusion here must be from The Lion King :D One of my favorite movies! Did you know that when Scar's voice actor was recording it, he lost his voice and a stand-in had to finish for him?

Author Reply: You didn't skip it; it wasn't here before. Until last night, it was part of Chapter 12. The contents of that chapter were supposed to be divided into 2 chapters, but they got combined. Last night, I decided to divide that chapter in two, and the result is this new chapter.

Author Reply: Oh, and no, I didn't know that! You learn something new every day. =)
