snow for us here too! And sorry somehow chapter 39 on "I'll be yours" repeated itself instead of posting chapter 40. I think I've got it fixed now. Sorry for any confusion. Chapter p

Snow is in tonight's forecast. Bah! It's too early for snow. Time for a sequel to "Islands of Warmth in a Sea of Cold."

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.
