Rating: PG (for one use of mildly salty language)
Summary: Sometimes a writer just can't please everyone, as Frodo discovers...
A/N: This collaborative story is the result of a rather silly late night IM conversation in which Dreamflower and Celeritas came to the conclusion that the reason that so many of the exciting things that happened in Rivendell and Hollin were left out of the Red Book is because it would have made the story far too long. (Readers may spot a number of familiar references...perhaps you will even see yourself...)

A/N: This is set in my "Sandbox," a limbo-of-the-fathers type place where I have more liberty to play around with the characters than I would in a strict canon setting.  Fits the January and the February challenges.

Going back to ideas from the poll I took, this month's challenge was from [livejournal.com profile] grey_wonderer:

Write a ficlet featuring a conversation between any two canon hobbits. (They can be "major" or "minor".)

As usual, you can post the story at this community at any time this month. Just make sure to post the rating and put the story behind a cut!

This is for the "new beginnings" challenge!

Summary: Pippin tries to fit in at the Great Smials.
Author’s Notes: In my Shire-universe, Thain Ferumbras III abdicated the Thainship to Paladin the year that Pippin was 15. Concerned about the unpleasant atmosphere at the Great Smials that had prevailed in the years that Ferumbras’ mother Lalia was the Took, Paladin and Eglantine sent their children to live with relatives while they settled into the Great Smials and began making some changes there. One year later, they brought the children there to live. In this story, Pippin is 16, which is the equivalent of a 10 year-old among Men. Also, there are references here to some of my other stories, particularly "Consequences of a Fall", “The Dwarf Dagger”, “Moving Day”, and ”A Sight to Remember”.

Here is our first challenge under new management. The first challenge will be for a "cross-cultural" story, featuring a hobbit or hobbits interacting with one of the other races of Middle-earth! (Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] claudia603!) There are no minimums or maximums on length. Stories will be due in two weeks, but can be posted to the community early, at anytime between now and August 14. Please include the rating, and put the story behind a cut.

Also remember that this is an open community and may be read by persons under 17.

I hope you'll take a moment to help me out with getting this community going again!

[Poll #1594776]

If you have other ideas, please comment!

In the meanwhile, I plan to start posting links to some of the older stories that have appeared on the community! I hope you will enjoy seeing them once more (or for the first time, if you are new!)

Here is my "head injury" fic! Quite fortunately, JRRT had already inflicted this injury, so I did not need to hurt poor Bilbo any more than he already had been in canon...

This is from one of [livejournal.com profile] shirebound's Shirebunnies, and as it fits with the theme it is also for [livejournal.com profile] hobbit_ficathon as well.

Here is the bunny:

1. In FOTR Bilbo says to Frodo, “But I thought you knew enough Elvish at least to know dûn-adan: Man of the West, Númenorean. But this not the time for lessons!” Just what were Frodo’s lessons like? What were Bilbo’s teaching methods? Did Frodo even want to learn Elvish, or have lessons when he came to live at Bag End? Could he have been inspired to "go back to school" upon seeing Sam's joy in learning? Or was it an organic process, Bilbo teaching Frodo new things as he thought of them, as they hiked and lived together?
