I wrote this for "a conspiracy's" Hobbit-Centric Remix Challenge - my very first Remix. The author I was assigned was Dreamflower and the story I chose to remix was "When the King Comes Back - the Great Smials". I chose to focus on the relationship between Pippin and his parents, their reconciliation when he came home from the war, and their anguish and confusion when he went missing. Beta'd by Danachan and Larner - thank you both! And thank you, Dreamflower, for your incredible original story!
