What a lovely treat to get this the first day of my holiday:) Two of my favourite writers colluding:)

Author's Response: Colluding, lol, you make it sound like we're up to something awful ;) loads to come in this 'verse, Spiced has opened up an entire universe here! Thank you for your kind words, ziggy, I hope you enjoy your holiday.

Oh, no, he would hold, buckle and thong, that Claire was not a mistake, only the method, although as I literally just realised on that (Van “Word in your ear, please” — this is the second time he’s forced someone back into life without asking! 

Author's Response: Wellllllll - arguably he had no choice XD but yes, fascinating parallel, that it should be Maglor on one side of the divide and Claire on this side! (Anyway, no-one ever said he was perfect...Sauron's right he can be an arrogant bastard at times!)

Squee! I love it! Thank you so much, Narya! 


I think Van was sure, but his long life (and the mess he made with Dana) made him a little wary and he had to be sure, wanted to see Claire in her natural environment, her life, and responses to situations. Her kindness and passion would definitely lay any doubts to rest. I think he will ever be sorry he couldn’t talk to her, but events just went out of control in Summerland. And he’ll never think he did the wrong thing, just that she should have agreed.



Author's Response: Yes - as he says in Storm Warning, "she was not a mistake." I hadn't actually thought that the Dana situation might influence his thinking, but of course it would, now that you mention it. And Thuringwethil was an unexpected complication; I think they would have reached the same outcome, but at least the decision would have been Claire's.

You're welcome - thank you for all these wonderful ideas!!
