Ficlet by Karin Woywod - ’ Bilbo’s Note to Frodo ‘

Dear Frodo,
To you, they were just children stories told around an open fire, fairy tales, fables about dragons and their hoards, and funny trolls who could be outwitted easily.

How I wish I could have told you about the sheer terror and life-threatening danger facing those foes. And about the despair that comes from seeing people losing their home, people being maimed, people bleeding and crying from pain, people dying, and people surviving and deeming that the worse fate.

And about the endless fatigue, facing all these dangers with almost no hope. But going on, because you have to, you have to help your companions and the people that try to make a living from these lands.

Everyone knows the battle was won in the end, but at what a cost ?

I buried these feelings deep inside, but I will never be as I once was.

How I wish I could spare you any of this, but somehow I fear, you and me, we are so similar in kind, Fate may yet have a task in store for you, and it will you lead where you never dwelt before …

And in my mind, I will always be with you, whereever you may be.

My next of kin, take care.
With all the love I feel for you,

Your Uncle Bilbo.

[ Karin says : ]                The caption doesn’t mention Benedict Cumberbatch at all, wrongly identifying him as Andy Serkis. Which is the reason why I didn’t find this shot the first time around …
