Hello fellow Tolkien-lovers. I'm heading stateside for a couple of weeks so probably won't be online much. Take care, all - may the muses be generous!

with all my lovely elves created there. *g* But it looks as I really should give it a go soon, and keep a lookout for the new one. :)

Interesting news about the new game. I've bought Shadow of Mordor some time ago, but never really played it so far; I'm not playing often and when I do, I'm still stuck at Skyrim

This was a most enjoyable and gripping story, which I enjoyed very much and could not stop reading once I started.

You wove the two worlds together perfectly and it all felt utterly belieable.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you :) sorry for the delayed response, normally I reply quicker but I've been in France without internet. So pleased you enjoyed the story!

"When did you figure it out?"

Weirdly it was almost as soon as he appeared - there was something about the character that made me think 'Gandalf' - but I can't quite put my finger on what it was. Which is a sign of your good writing!

Author's Response: Wow, that is quick! I'm very impressed. Many thanks, Wombat!

I've spent a lovely, lazy, afternoon reading this - and really enjoyed it. You can't imagine how pleased I was that my early guess of Proust as Gandalf was right!

Author's Response: Hi Wombat! I'm glad you enjoyed it, thanks for taking the time to say so :) when I was originally posting a fair few people thought he was Bombadil, so well done for guessing! When did you figure it out?

Oh my, you have done it! You have finished the story. I meant to review this much earlier but like Spiced Wine I was so completely absorbed in the story that I forgot to so, my bad there. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, the second time around just as much as the first. Also you managed to bring such a wonderful story to such a perfect close, as finishing a story on the right note can be so difficult but you have managed to do it flawlessly. I will be going back and reading through this entire story again now that all the parts are up but fantastic work on re-posting this story, I am really glad you did as it has been a pleasure to read it once again.

Author's Response: Don't worry at all about the reviewing, I'm guilty of that myself! I'm just glad you enjoyed it :) thanks so much, Anwyn!

Sorry, nary, I got so engrossed that I read several chapters without reviewing.
Whatever you do in the future, don't stop writing. You have such a gift of pulling me in and making me accept as truth the weaving between modern earth and Middle-earth. It reminds me a great deal of Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising; her books are excellent because she does the same thing and you feel that normality is encroached on by an older, fantastical world. I'm really enjoying this. (Again).

Author's Response: Hey, no worries, I don't expect reviews for every chapter - especially considering you've already read this once!!! I'm glad you still like it :) I haven't read Susan Cooper but I'll have to give it a go, it sounds right up my street. And don't worry, I won't give up writing - I find it too addictive!! ;) Many thanks for your kind words.

It's a real pleasure to re-read this, Narya. I remember how sympathetically and truly you write Anna's coping with grief - it rings so true, and the really delicate bleeding of one world into another is masterly. Thank-you for re-posting this. :)

Author's Response: And thank you for leaving such lovely, thoughtful reviews :) I can't make up my mind where I stand on this story - whether I got a little too mawkish with it or what, but I know from experience that grief can't and shouldn't be trivialised. I'm glad you're enjoying the re-read *hugs*

Very pleased you're posting this, Narya. I'm looking forward to reading it again; it was such an unusual idea, but it you really made it work, and I loved the characters. :)

Author's Response: Thank you! As you know I had a bit of an odd reaction to this story when I went back to it, but once I'd got over the shock of the re-read, working on it wasn't so bad. I haven't changed much, just re-ordered a few bits - I haven't done a Three with it, so to speak ;) hugs!
