Remix: With a Great Effort He Concealed It (The Shadow Remix) [Frodo, 100 words, rated PG], by sophinisba
Sam and Rosie, bless them both, were wrapped up in each other and their dreams of the future, happy and hopeful as the spring flowers in the garden. Since Frodo knew what was coming this time, he chose to keep it secret. The cold, clutching shadow of the past would only fall on him.
Between the nightmares and the pain he barely slept, but when the sun rose he got up, relieved that it was over. After everything else, it was his own shadowed face in the mirror that made him scream. He still hadn't managed to leave Sméagol behind.
