Below you will find the series Too Long to Wait. The pairing is Frodo/Aragorn. The premise is that Frodo has chosen not to sail and instead to live with Aragorn in Minas Tirith. Ten years of relative bliss have passed...and then the loving couple get the shock of their lives.

I've tried to put them into relative order here. Drabbles are mixed in with longer stories. I will label drabbles as such.

I distinctly remember a discussion about Ellohir receiving a little brother or sister. Not to pressure you, or anything. *poke* *POKE!*

hee hee! :-) First I have to get all of the Ellohir episodes up! :-D *hugs*

Ok, I'll wait. I'm anxious to see how you have our sweet Aragorn break his vow never to have Frodo again. (I hated that vow - it so limited their romantic encounters!) I want to see if Frodo tricks him, or seduces him, or gets him drunk, or what Maybe you could borrow barandiun's delightful "Gondorian Riding Jackets" ficlet and have one break.

errr ... perhaps I have given this too much thought...
waiting in eager anticipation (and hoping for lots of NC-17 details)
*hugs you back*

oooh, I like your ideas! :D I've actually been musing over that myself...just how WOULD Frodo get him to break his vow...:-) Wicked! :-)

(no subject) - (Anonymous)

Thank you! :-) *blushes*

Are you going to post links to all chapters here?

*putting this in memories*

Yes! I'm working on it! :-D I got a few more today! :-D

I love this series! It's my favorite Aragorn/Frodo fic. I can't wait for more additions! Thanks so much for sharing! ^-^

Thank you very much!!! :-) This is a universe I like to delve into every now and again! :-)

another child?

I love this story and hope you continue with it for a long time. Are you going to give them another child? I can’t wait for the next chapter?

Re: another child?

I always love to add to this universe! :-) And I have considered a second child...just don't have the plot quite worked out, yet! Thank you so much!

I absolutely love this series. Is there any chance of continuing it? And is there a reason a few of the chapters are locked? I would very much like to read the last one. :)

oh wow, thank you so very much!!

If you go to my journal and to my tags:


There is a tag for "too long to wait". There should be every possible drabble or ficlet I wrote in this series! :) I revisit this series from time to time and add to it. I just wrote a little ficlet for shirebound's birthday in March, in fact! :)

I will friend you, if that is okay! I like to know another mpreg person! :)

Of course! I've friended you back and I found the rest of the series. Thank you much!

Poking this because ZOMG we met on April 18!!! Our anniversary is coming up! I need to bookmark this or something.

And THIS is what I was going to link in the FFFC because the last chapter is WHERE YOU LEFT OFF. BEFORE I FRIENDED YOU.

And I love that you asked to friend me first because I'm such an antisocial asshole. Seriously. And I tend to ask before I friend people back, anyway....



awwwww.....This is SO SWEET!!!! *grins and loves* I knew it was in 2010ish but couldn't remember exactly when!


So it is now two years later and HIGH time you write the fic that comes after http://claudia603.livejournal.com/1637180.html this one.


All right! I think I will make a little section after that my first fan fic writing priority this weeK! :)) Yah, going to shut myself out of internetz again, starting at 8 a.m. and going until 8 p.m.!

You know what I've done so far today? Three guesses.


If you SERIOUSLY can't imagine HOW I might ACCIDENTALLY spend TWO HOURS, then I'll email you.

Point is? I'm ridiculous. And I need to get to work.

All we need is 100 words me dear!

A funny story about this story XD

On another site you archived this story in (possibly Baranduin's LOTR site, which I don't think is around anymore), you added a P.S. in your introductory author's note which, to my memory, read: "I can't believe I'm doing this".
And my first thought was: "Neither can I." XD

I have a confession to make; when I first read this, I was about twelve. The age at which I was actually naive enough to believe that if I told my mother I had just read a fic about Frodo being pregnant with Aragorn's child, she wouldn't barf.

I am now twenty and I still shudder at the memory of my mother's reaction upon being told about this fic. After years I have finally sought it out again to hopefully be able to tell you this, as you may find it pretty amusing that one of your fics could have caused such an uproar XD

Anyway, you're a wonderful writer and I must say, you were VERY daring to chance this kind of subject matter. It's good to see that so many people enjoyed it.

aww..Thank you so much! You might never see this, but I see I totally forgot to come back and thank you!
