Eucatastrophe: A Letter to Home by Dreamflower

Author: Dreamflower
Title: Eucatastrophe: A Letter Home
Rating: G
Theme: Myth or legend
Elements: a fruit: the shipova, which is a cross between a pear and the fruit of the whitebeam tree.
Author's Notes: This takes place in my "Eucatastrophe-universe", in which the Three Rings did not fail, but gained in power and those who sailed West were given the option to return to Middle-earth, and in which Frodo was fully healed and able to stay in Middle-earth. At the time of this story, he is 83 and has retired to Minas Anor to write the definitive book on the languages of Men and Elves. He and Gandalf are living in the same house where the Fellowship stayed after the war, and staying with them are Merry's son Periadoc, Pippin's son Faramir and two of Sam's sons, Merry and Pippin Gamgee. They have come to spend couple of years studying and learning at the King's court. (In this universe, the Fourth Age actually begins on the date of the Ring's destruction, rather than two years later.)
Summary: Frodo writes a letter home, and has a story to tell Merry...
