Title: Feed a Cold, Starve a Fever ... 1/1
Characters: Frodo, Eowyn, Faramir
Summary: It's no fun being shut up all alone with a Fever of Unknown Origin while everyone else in Edoras is out celebrating and having fun.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters and make no money from them.
Feedback: Always welcome.
A/N: Thanks to lilybaggins for a great beta ... written for febobe

Now, google.com gives me many entries regarding the "starve a cold, feed a fever" versus "feed a cold, starve a fever" issue, as well as discussions on the inadvisability of "starving" anyone when they’re ill. Though I do have to say that "feed a cold, starve a fever" does seem to be the winner from the "old wives tale" perspective, and one that Frodo seems to have tried to do here, with unwitting assistance from Aragorn and Gandalf. Given their renown as healers, we can only surmise that kingly duties and wedding banquets rather robbed them of their common sense. ( Collapse )
