A neat bit of storytelling, this. It makes me ache just reading it, and catches the dilemma of whether to trust or not trust Smeagol very well indeed.

I really liked the physical details and the way you captured Frodo's weariness on this. It did feel like it lacked direction, though, and in some way's Frodo's resolution felt a bit hasty.

Given that I've now watched the full movie, it's hard to read a fic based on the trailer that excluded much of what we now know comes after. Still, the sense of Frodo's physical effort and the line about dark windows were well done.

An intersting scene.
