I first started following this story with a bit of trepidation as Ancalime posted it on her LiveJournal. MPreg is not generally my thing, you see, but she's generally such a good writer that I decided to give it a shot. The medical detail is accurate without being too over the top graphic for me. The characters are lovingly written and with an eye to canon. I ended up enjoying the story very much!

Hmm--mpreg with a decided, even possibly realistic, twist. I'm not certain I like how the Brandybucks are pictured here, but Bilbo I'm rightly proud of. As for Aragorn and Halbarad--very satisfactory. Illness prolonged enough to be interesting, but not to the point of absurdity, for which I'm grateful. Yes, worth the read.

I'm so happy to see an mpreg here and am amused by previous reviews. This is the famous fic that got you thrown off a certain archive, I think. :) Anyway, I loved how drawn out and angsty and full of hurt/comfort this fic is, and of course I'll never get tired of Ranger and hobbit interaction!

because your chapters don't advance nicely this is all the review you get!
