I love the way the dialogue meanders in this story. It's very much what I would expect from Sam and Frodo relaxing after a big dinner. And I love the way they've both more or less resumed their old roles. It's feels familiar and comforting. In fact, the entire story feels familiar and comforting, which is part of its charm. Great peak into Sam and Frodo after all is said and done.

This is a Frodo's Harem fic, yet it is one that can be appreciated for it's own sake, for truly it is far more about the deep friendship of Frodo and Sam. A touch I loved though, was the pipeweed Merry had developed, "Westward Hope". How beautiful.
