Summary: Frodo and Aragorn are both stubborn creatures, whether climbing the snowy slopes of Caradhras or facing off in the dark of Moria.

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!
