I’m so sorry about that. E-script can be rather ‘buggy’ at times

Thank you for the welcome! I had troubles logging in, my PW didn't work at first and having sent a new one didn't work either. But after the third or fourth attempt it now worked.

It just might be a glitch, I am afraid, as e-script can be a little bit buggy at times. But I’m glad you’re in now

Name: Narya (Signed) · Date: December 29, 2018 14:25 · For: Cheese-wright of Gondor
Oooh! I love it! I get so geeky over worldbuilding details like this - and I am a fiend for cheese, I used to work in a cheese shop. I would love to know more about your cheesemaker, if you're ever so inclined!

Author's Response:

Thank you!

I'm not strong on the culinary angle, mostly (I would find it very difficult to write a recipe fic!), but when this prompt came up, it so happened that I'd been reading up on cheese just a bit. The "cheese-wright"  in the title is based on a job description from Anglo-Saxon England and apparently the cheesemaker was expected to be female.

I thought of it as a one-off, but on the other hand I've always wanted to write a little more about Forlong and, if that happens, I think his cheesemaker will be included, if I can find any reason or excuse to include her!
