Summary: Pippin and Arwen become friends, but the start is not easy.

Reviewed by: Larner -- Score: 4

Ah, to see these two become friends and for Pippin to accept this form of comfort and therapy. But the time was stressful, after all; and the others needed such reassurance as they could find. It was wonderful seeing Pippin doing what he does best--helping to lighten the burdens of other through his humor and lightheartedness, hiding that his own heart was breaking. Lovely story.

This charming little gap-filler fills out a bit about what Pippin is up to during their stay at Rivendell and the, for the hobbits, interminable wait and worry for Frodo's recovery. The description of the room for Merry and Pippin comes off the page. It is so vivid. I love Arwen's solution to help Pippin release some of his tension.

We all needs love and care and hugs like this when we are troubled. Love Pippin hiding behind the tapestry and Arwen seeking him out. God bless, Antane

This is very sweet. I can imagine Arwen offering Pippin comfort by giving him something to do. The two of them have a lovely interaction here--she's so gracious.
