Child of the 7th Age is a guest of Tom Bombadil.

In contrast, Merry and Pippin become servants to gain qualities Sam already possesses.
This is an interesting idea. I had always been aware of how Sam thought of himself as a servant and how important this was to many of the themes in the book--duty, obedience, etc. I'd just never thought of Merry and Pippin in this way, but you're definitely right.

I also noticed you are a librarian. So am I, or at least I was before I became a full-time mom.
