He looks so fragile, but he's strong as tempered steel.


That's Book Frodo for sure. But the supremely beautiful Film Frodo also conveys that beauty of soul.

I read a lovely drabble once in which Bilbo saw newly orphaned Frodo standing before him like a fawn, very still, tentative, as if poised for flight.

*smiles* I refer you to mine, below: :)

Many generations of hobbit-children have been enchanted by Gandalf’s tales, sitting expectantly on Anduin’s banks or, centuries later, by fireplaces in cosy smials. Gandalf fondly remembers little Bilbo, eyes widening in wonder at a wizard’s smoke-rings curling into dragon-shapes and swan-ships.

Now, in Bilbo’s parlour, a hobbit-lad approaches Gandalf shyly, like a deer in moonlight, tense and graceful. This Fallohide boy seems as supple as velvet but Gandalf senses iron within.

Frodo holds out his hand. ‘I’m Bilbo’s heir, sir.’ His eyes glow as deep as the Mirrormere.

Gandalf nods slowly. ‘Yes,’ he says smiling, ‘indeed you are.’

Lamby, lamby! You posted it! That was the exact one, the one that I gushed over in the Harem months and months ago.

I didn't want to say more without speaking to you first, in case you really hadn't liked it, after all. May I post it up in the entry itself? Few will see it down here, and it's so beautiful and apt. Perfect, really. That boy would surely grow up looking the one in these screencaps (or the one who approaches Galadriel in Lorien, even more?).
