Thank you, Alquien :) Unless we have to move to a new server, money is not a problem :)

Just now playing catch up here but anyway, count me in for a donation. I love this archive!

I think it’s important to keep these Tolkien specific archives going, especially with so many dying.

She’s quite willing to keep it hosted on the same server, just the admin/tech work would be done by someone else.

I don’t think we need to worry about the archive going, esteliel just thinks it would be better if someone acted as host/admin who was in the fandom.

I am mostly on AO3 but I like Faerie a lot better than FFnet to be honest, and the best reviews I ever got were on Faerie.

If you do, Ysilme, I will pass you email on to Esteliel :) You would make a great overall host for the archive.

I also might be able to help with the technical site of things. I'll send you a mail, Sîan, for details.

Reviews For The Wit to See

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.
