NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

Rivendell 5 ~ The Red Book: “I’m not like you, Bilbo”, plus “Rivendell Suite".


One of the things that struck me, re-reading these chapters set in Rivendell, is how close, what intimate friends Frodo and Bilbo actually are. I had forgotten. In part, it is because of the book itself: Bilbo isn’t there that much, literally, in the pages of The Lord of the Rings—an inevitability, perhaps, because he doesn’t go on the Quest.
