I am always amazed when so few words can convey such strong meaning and emotion and images. You captured Smeagol and Deagol perfectly.

Blissful innocence meets grim foreboding. I love the title and all that it carries with it. Very good drabble and wonderful foreboding into what should have been a happy day

That made me smile, the last and prophetic promise "You'll never guess." IndeedÂ…

Very sad, and chilling. You don't see much about Smeagol and Deagol in fanfic, and yet I imagine they were very much like the hobbits we know and love, before the Ring came along and changed everything. And yet... perhaps hobbits did make some progress in the intervening years, for Bilbo's hand was staid by pity, as was Frodo's, and Frodo's cousins pitied rather than envied him, and did all they could do to help him on his way, to rid himself of the Thing.
