Reviewed by: Rhapsody -- Score: 6

A very wee and lovable story on how Pippin views the toy he loves so much. I am captivated by the way, how Beethoven's 7th manages to describe a toy as a yo-yo in such detail and activity... truly amazing. Once you can spare the time you have to tell me how you pull this off. Besides the incredibly narrative, I loved the ending as well. It is so incredibly hobbity and so wee!Pippin: stopping immediately when mom tells elevensies is ready. Now how more hobbity can it get like that? *grin* I like the way how you write Pippin as a child, so incredibly carefree. Another great story Beethoven's 7th, you always leave me wondering how much more beautiful stories you have hidden ;)

I love the way this little vignettes describes Pippin's toy. It's constantly spinning and constantly in motion. I was almost dizzy, actually, and in places, it made me think of what Pippin might have been like as a child. Great imagery all throughout. Very vivid.

A very good description of movement, Beethoven's 7th, something I often struggle with. I could not, for the life of me, figure out what it was until the last paragraph and then it was one of those smack-yourself-in-the-forehead moments. The 'Aha! So that's what it was' statements followed. Nicely done.
