Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Ah- I love this story. so nice that it popped up on the random story and I rmembered how full of wonder this is- and how very very Tolkienesque in the sense that it feels real and not quite real at the same time. Wonderful.



Author's Response: Hi ziggy, and thank you! I'm sorry, I never got the review notification for this :( I'm glad you like it; I don't think it's one of my better pieces, but I do like the idea that Derry and Anna occasionally bump into bits of Middle-earth - and also that they eventually found happiness together :)

This was just lovely and I'm so pleased the characters in your other story have found happiness.



Author's Response: Thank you Linda! They certainly deserved it, after all that :)

Cool(= Is this part of a larger story arc?

Author's Response: It is, yes - chronologically it's the last (so far) in my Second Chance series. The main story is about 60k words and there are a couple of other little one shots. Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Lovely Narya- so nice ot have you back and a lovely delightful snippet. Wish it were true



Author's Response: What do you mean? It's all real, I tell you! :P thanks, ziggy, glad you enjoyed.

What a wonderful little companion piece to wind in with the larger story, I especially liked the last bit about comparing it to crossing a road as that is one of my favorite Tolkien quotes. Very nice, I enjoy little 'slice' stories like this one (a little taste of the bigger pie, I tend to think of them as, it's such a treat)

Author's Response: That's a lovely way to think of them! I'm glad you liked it; thank you for reading and commenting.

How nice to see them again! And all grown up and parental...

Author's Response: Thanks, wombat! I'm glad you liked it; I feel that they'd make good parents. Thank you for reading and commenting, as always!

Oh, I really like this. It gives me a real feeling reading stories like this. A glimpse of Middle-earth in the modern world.
Why did Anna not want to see him?

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it :) I think for Anna, there's too much tied up in it - she doesn't want to risk *not* being able to see him, or finding out that it isn't what she thinks, that it's not real, because then everything she believes about her sister is all wrong. I haven't gone into it yet, but I think Proust "moving on" shook her faith a little; there's a small part of her that doesn't quite believe what she's experienced any more. It's funny, I know their whole lives and what happens to them after the main story ends, but I don't want to write it all down; a lot of it will probably come out in time though, in shorter pieces like this one. I have half a story about Beomia and Aiken and Eothain, too - I must sort that out at some point! Thank you very much for reading and commenting, as always.
