I commissioned this beautiful art from Aegileif to celebrate the first anniversary of my first post in the Hobbit fandom—A Fertile Garden. I love the palette, and Thorin sitting next to Bilbo—and they both have peaches… A Fertile Garden has some flaws; but since it was my first story, it also has a special place in my heart.
And I would like to say thank you to these people: #Elin, #Syxx, #diemarysues, #Agape, #Etharei, #HobbitFeels, #Eastofedin, #mangagirl64, #interpol15, #Thorinsmut, #Kit_Kat92, #Mozzarella, and #prairie_lys.
Your kind comments as I posted this fic encouraged me to keep going. Without them, I suspect A Fertile Garden would have also been my last fanfic—and now I can’t imagine a life where I’m not writing most of the time.
So thank you for your encouragement! I want you to know how much it meant to me—this is for you.
