Ch. 37: Chapter 37 The Last Deep Breath

Ah - a new chapter - this has certainly made my morning - I couldn't resist and wait until this evening.

I love Pippin's mental letter to Merry - I think you very clever to use his point of view here so that we are as unsure of exactly what all those conversations are about as he is.

As for "In fact, the Hobbits had decided a long time ago that that was the reason for Elrond choosing Legolas and not some great and powerful Elf lord like Glorfindel."  I think Pippin might very well have a good point there.

I loved that interaction between Legolas and Elrohir during the march - and the perfect contrast there at the end of the chapter.

I wonder if Pippin realises that he might be being used as bait?

Ch. 37: Chapter 37 The Last Deep Breath

Mmmmmmmmmmm ... my Saturday morning is now replete as well.

As I was reading this chapter it occurred to me you even have the gift of making the long, boring march of an army scintallating and fun to read! It also occurred to me that this entire story has been one I have never hurried through, skipping boring stuff or reading quickly over stuff I don't care for. You have engaged my brain and my heart every step of the way on this journey, drawn me in like fish on a line, happy to be hooked!

Pippin's POV is always a joy to read as his author has crafted so a multi-layered halfling here. His longing for home, his keen powers of observation, his desire to cheer up everyone, his need to meddle in everything ... he's the cutest hobbit imaginable. And I loved his imaginary letter to Merry.

Another great chapter, Ziggy. And I've had a wonderful morning because of you! Thanks, hon!

hugs, tanis

Ch. 37: Chapter 37 The Last Deep Breath

Absolutely brilliant to show this series of scenes through the innocent but knowing eyes of Pippin. So creepy and cunning that he is unaware--or is only slowly becoming aware--that he is the only Hobbit in the group and thus the logical poor sucker who must be hiding "It". The tension is so thick, I feel the hairs on the back of my neck rising, just like Pip's! Agghh, so much angst--everyone is on the edge of a knife. Can't wait to learn just what Gimli and Aragorn were jawing about, and for some long awaited resolution... to all sorts of unresolved issues!! Carry on, please, and hurry! Aiwendiel.
