Wow! This is like totally, one hundred percent how I view my two favorite characters. I actually like it with no dialogue. You do a really great job of taking a moment in time and just bringing forth all of the emotion and beauty of it possible.
"...and his breathing was uneven and ragged, although he seemed peaceful in sleep." Why is this?
Keep up your wonderful portrayals of the two little Hobbits. I love them!
Author's Response: I enjoy writing stories with no dialogue. It gives a better air of angst and mystery, whilst I get to describe lots of people and surroundings! I think it's one of my more emotional stories and about Pip's breathing - I always think that when he has nightmares, he'd go straight to Merry instead of his parents or anyone else, so he's breathing strangely because he's been running to Merry and he's only just fallen asleep after having bad dreams. I am glad you like my stories and even happier that you leave long reviews! Your fellow angst-writer, meerkatalex
Short, but heartwarming. It partly explains why they were such close chums during the War of the Ring and afterwards.
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! I'm glad that you like this piece, and it does explain a lot about them, I think.
