Oh, Frodo and Aragorn could both win prices for stubbornness in this story. Although Aragorn has the advantage of being bigger than Frodo as he pointed out. I like the warm friendship with strong hints of more at the end between those two. It gave me a warm and cozy feeling.

Beautifully written hurt/comfort - Frodo is ill after the attempt on Caradhras, and Aragorn must convince him to accept treatment. Gentle humor, wistful at times, and gorgeously done.

Very nice hurt/comfort and I especially liked the idea that Aragorn was in hiding watching the Birthday Party, waiting to escort Bilbo on his next Adventure. I could really imagine that happening!
