I'd rather hoped this one would be continued by now--perhaps this will stimulate Claudia to doing some more writing on it. To see the trust growing between Frodo and the Hobbits' new companion Strider is welcome and heartwarming. This is presented much as I myself tend to view things, and much from Striders point of view, with Frodo's growing expressed trust and the man's increasing appreciation for Frodo's intelligence and native Hobbit charm. A lovely pair of chapters so far--now if she'll only work on completing it!

I really enjoy cross-cultural "getting acquainted" stories. This one, detailing the journey from Bree to Rivendell, as the hobbits get acquainted with the mysterious Strider, is very good indeed. I love the portrayal of Strider's instant feelings of loyalty to Frodo, and the show of determination and devotion from Frodo's friends. Although there are only two chapters, I do hope that Claudia will update this again. It's a very promising beginning.

This is off to a really good start. I'm looking forward to the further development of the friendship between Strider and Frodo. Great description of the fear they all feel concerning the Black Riders.
