Courtesy of Dictionary.com (actually it was yesterday's word for the day, but I only checked my inbox this morning, so bite me):

froward \FROH-werd\, adjective:

not easily managed; contrary

c. 1300, Old English fromweard "turned from or away," from, from + -weard. The opposite of toward, it was Latin pervertus in early translations of the Psalms, and also meant "about to depart, departing," and "doomed to die."


Pervertus? :D Yes, please.

I think we have some of the best ingredients of fanfic there. Drama!Frodo not easily managed? Check. Angsty!Frodo about to depart or doomed to die? Check. They've missed one definition though: Froward: leaning or inclined towards Frodo...
