A Bit of Rope

Ch. 12: Passage South

I so love not only Frodo giving Gandalf what-for, but Sam doing the same to Frodo!  The Wizard is right--Frodo has excellent companions!  And love that there is a chance for at least one of the Hobbits to rest for a day each time.

But I still worry that Gollum is not part of the quest.

Dear Aiwendiel,
I like your story very, very, very, very much.
However, I have a little criticism. I understand that its goal is probably to explain better the different personalities and choices of the characters, but I think it slows down the narration.
And, by the way, I don't like the Gandalf that you paint in this chapter: the meddler, nosy old man that influences so many fates and so many people... I hate the way he chooses to sacrificate other beings to serve the greater purpose and, most of all, I hate his betrayal of Frodo and his choice to not reveal him too much information at once. I know, in Middle-earth many consider him to be a meddler, but this is exaggerated!
Do not take my counsel amiss, because you're a far better writer than what I'll ever be. My compliments! :)
