Oh, lovely story! I can just see this happening this way, since it's obvious in the books that Aragorn knew Bilbo fairly well at the time of the council. Well done.

A very good read. Well written and beautiful. Both Aragorn and Bilbo are delightful, as well as the supporting characters.

Another good story of Estel meeting Bilbo, but actually, I like this story best for the conversation between Gandalf and Elrond in which they talk about interfering in other people's affairs. For some reason, that really amused me. Gilraen was another welcome surprise, and enjoyed her solemn characterization. It makes a lot of sense to me.

I enjoyed this story. Estel was a sweet child and I liked the interchange with Bilbo. I really liked the epilogue too… to see him all grown up and Bilbo pretty much the same.

Another Estel and Bilbo story, this one does not show quite so much of the interaction between the two, but does show some of the interaction between Elrond and Gandalf as they, in their seperate ways, "meddle" in the llives of others. I very much liked the Epilogue, as it showed Bilbo writing the verse that was much like a prophecy, and which figured so much in later events.

A nice little story of what might have been, and it does make logical sense they Aragorn and Bilbo might have met then, and it would explain their friendship.
