Story Summary

Now Ungoliant stirs again, seeking to release herself upon Aman at the first anniversary of her bite Frodo knows on the Isle of Tol Eressëa, and the Valar summon him to the Fanes where they might approach him and offer him the final judgment and healing he must know to accept life here.

This story feels, in a way, like it is a chapter in a longer story. It leaves me wanting to read more, both about his life with Bilbo before this, and about the future whan Sam will join him. It gave me some very vivid images, and I like how you describe characters who don't have a clear, physical appearance in the books.

Am glad this left you wanting to read more.  This was written to fit into a gap of my other stories; the visit to the Fanes was mentioned in "Filled with Light as with Water," "The Choice of Healing," and "Reunion."  The first is the brief description of Frodo to Sam of how he came to be as he'd be when Sam arrived; the second looks at the time between the Return and the death of Frodo and Sam on Tol Eressea and covers the events leading up to the visit to the Fanes; and the third is the story of Rosie's death, Sam's decision to sail, and his stay on the island, ending with his and Frodo's deaths, with a brief discussion of the wound on Frodo's neck.

This particular story was directly inspired by Fiondil's "Elf Interrupted: Glorfindel Redux," which is posted on Stories of Arda.  He and I see things slightly differently, although we do overlap in many ways.

I've always loved the relationship between Bilbo and Frodo.
