Oh my dear Ziggy! What are you doing to yourself. I hope you heal quickly and you're back in the saddle, so to speak, as soon as possible. :)

That sounds like a nice silver lining, Ziggy!

The really nice thing is that I actually have some time to read and write after working for home all day- instead of working at work and then working at home!

Naledi- haha- yes, hoist by my own wished-for-petard! That doesn't quite make sense. Thank you as well Fadestothewest and Ysilme, Narya- I am actually lucky. Could have been much worse!x

ANd THAT is the ending I almost wanted- except in my version, he goes off and Treebeard comes to the Shire and all ends happily. And Sorrel finds a magic cure (although you are right for the story's integrity to not do this).

An absolutely charming tale for autumn. Thank you for posting that. Thoroughly enjoyable and different.

Author's Response: Well, I mean, he might! I deliberately left it open :) thank you for your kind words, Ziggy, I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

That was like being in a dream and then awakening so suddenly it almost hurt. It's suddenly become unbearably sad, Narya. I am wishing hard for a happier ending.

Author's Response: Well, not exactly happy...I am sorry!

Just had to pause and tell you how much I love you for writing this:)

Author's Response: Aww, ziggy! Thanks :) so pleased you like it xx

What a lovely story. It has such an warm old fashioned feel to it. I loved what these young hobbits experienced and I liked how you had Bombadil in there! I'm so glad the Entwives are not gone--their story always saddened me and I am so glad you and bunn brought them back.

Author's Response: Oh thank you! :) I've been intrigued by the Entwives for a while, Zdenka wrote a great piece on them for B2MeM back in March, so bunn's lovely art was the perfect excuse to explore their fate further. Sadly I think a fair amount of them did perish in the East, although Tom doesn't go into that here. At least some of them survived.

It felt exactly like reading that chapter. Before then you are stepped in, as you say, that feel of bucolic ‘old England’ and then suddenly, like a hand reaching out from the dark and settling on your shoulder you get this feeling of the past, and the vastness of the world, its ancientness and it gives such a frisson. This story gave me absolutely the same feeling

Author's Response: "you are stepped in, as you say, that feel of bucolic ‘old England’ and then suddenly, like a hand reaching out from the dark and settling on your shoulder you get this feeling of the past, and the vastness of the world, its ancientness and it gives such a frisson." - ahh, that's such a wonderful way of putting it. Thank you so much, I'm really glad you like this :D

Oh this was really enchanting it reminds me of reading books when I was young, it was really beautiful and Hobbity- and yet more, like you feel when reading The Shadow of the Past in LOTR, that there is a huge history stretching back into the mists

Author's Response: Thank you! :D I didn't know if you would be interested in this at all, I wasn't really expecting to get any reviews for it, but I had such a lovely time writing it - it was like getting lost in Old England. I'm so glad it made you think of The Shadow of the Past, that sort of familiarity blended with a strange and ancient siren-call was exactly what I was going for.
