I usually cringe at OC's but Pearl has done a fantastic job here. I loved her Half-Dwarven character's devotion and care of Pippin because he is wearing the livery of Gondor. I also thought that the way she first brought Merry and Pippin into the story, and then wrote them into a holiday to give them a bit of a break from the way she had been knocking them about in her fics was wonderful. Although they didn't exactly wind up with a trip to the beach, lol!
