Sounds like we've got some good new fics/updates on their way if everyone is writing this weekend:)

I've been working so hard to get them done, that I'm done in the process.

That sounds like my kind of weekend. Spiced! Hopefully I can have some fics finished for everyone to read. Fingers crossed. :)

Similar I think! It's meant to be cloudy here but no rain forecast so I think a walk to start with, then some writing time

Not really, but the weather is supposed to be quite mild and nice. Probably relax and write and go for a couple of walks. You?

Reviews For King Oak

This is just lovely, though I feel very bad about poor King Oak.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

Author's Response: Please excuse my tardiness in responding to your review. Personal issues involving my health and the deaths of two friends necessitated a break from my writing for a while. Thank you for your kind review, attention and support.

A powerful old tree, symbolising the passing of magical powers of yore, and the coming as the age of men, is a lovely idea !

Author's Response: You have interpreted my intentions exactly! Thank you for your comment and continuing support.

A loively and delicate tale, full of nostalgia and at that point of turning in Me, when the Time of the elves is over and the land is changing, I liekd teh notion that event eh Barrow-wights had gone. I have a sense of loss even with that, that magic has left and we are somehow the poorer for it. 

 

Happy Birthday.

Author's Response: Thank you, Ziggy. I have always viewed the magic of Middle Earth as something finite that the Elves and Wizards would tap into when performing wonders. But even before such an earth-shaking event like the War of the Ring, the Elves could feel their powers waning. They were beginning to, "...feel thin," as Bilbo Baggins had put it, "like butter that's been spread on too much bread." And so, even before Frodo became the Ring Bearer, the Elves were leaving Middle Earth forever.

In my timeline of Middle Earth, even Tom Bombadil and Goldberry will eventually depart. I'm presently working on the story, but it's still only an outline with no working title.
