Story Summary

It’s corny, it’s clichéd, it’s cricket! It’s Frodo, it’s Samwise, it’s First Time!

Cricket is just baseball on Valium (Robin Williams)
Baseball is merely hyperactive cricket (Tiriel).
Village cricket is so essentially English that it just has to be a hobbit preoccupation! If you think you need to know, a few pointers to the rules and terminology are appended; I have tried to make it accurate, but, as you may have surmised, this isn’t really about cricket…

General Comment

Ho, ho, hot! Excuse me while I scoop up my melted brain.

Your prose is very engaging, whether it's narrating a cricket game, poetically describing a garden at dawn, or revealing to a breathless reader the intimacy of two who have wanted each other for a very long time.

Great characterisation, fun plot and satisfying ending. :D
