Glad you posted! [In reply to] Can't Post

I am interested by your perception of Rivendell not so much being about comfort for our AUJ cast, unlike FOTR. The reasons are what make it an interesting plot point - is it because of the Dwarven restlessness and greater purpose? Their lack of trust? Or is it because when our FOTR cast gets there there is such a real NEED to be there. to save Frodo, so we can see the contrast. So in FOTR then the plot tension is to arrive at Rivendell, and then we get a break; whereas you point out its no respite for the Dwarves, just an unwelcome stopping point. Read the map and roll out.
Two very different facets of the Rivendell experience. And in two phases of Rivendell's lifetime.

...she took the point at once, but she also took the spoons.
