Thank you, Alquien :) Unless we have to move to a new server, money is not a problem :)

Just now playing catch up here but anyway, count me in for a donation. I love this archive!

I think it’s important to keep these Tolkien specific archives going, especially with so many dying.

She’s quite willing to keep it hosted on the same server, just the admin/tech work would be done by someone else.

I don’t think we need to worry about the archive going, esteliel just thinks it would be better if someone acted as host/admin who was in the fandom.

So I would be ready to contribute as well and really sad to see the archive go :)

I am mostly on AO3 but I like Faerie a lot better than FFnet to be honest, and the best reviews I ever got were on Faerie.

If you do, Ysilme, I will pass you email on to Esteliel :) You would make a great overall host for the archive.

I also might be able to help with the technical site of things. I'll send you a mail, Sîan, for details.

I love this, Narya. It fits perfectly, and answered the questions, though we knew who Mr Proust was it's wonderful to see him admit it, and to show them who he was.

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for reading, glad you enjoyed :) it was certainly fun to write. I'm glad you think it fits; I was concerned that it might be a bit of an infodump!!

Ah yes - a few ends neatly tied. I do love the idea of Tolkien being a reincarnated Bilbo - suddenly it is the obvious answer!

Author's Response: Ah, but is it the right answer...? :P To be honest I'm not convinced even I know the answer! I *think* I do, but I could be wrong. Anyway, many thanks for your kind words :)

Proust’s plump, balding outline began to fade, and around him a silvery light hung in the air. The light brightened and Proust dimmed, until the light was all there was - and power, a warm, heavy touch on her mind, around her, pushing and pulling like a magnet attracting metal, and she closed her eyes and gave herself up to it, because the light was so bright it burned. She rushed with the Power through a clean new world, a diamond still ocean, past two trees - the trees, pure, terrifying - and wept with it as darkness came and war took the land. Blood spumed over mountains, spattering snow and staining the sky - then came a song, and a fading, and grey. She saw a path on which a silver figure walked alone, sometimes turning to look back but never stopping for long, always going forwards...and then the Power withdrew, and with it went the fresh elemental land of stone and river, starlight and sun, wine and spell and blood. Tendrils of reality crept back and took hold. Odd things, cold things. The smell of cleaning fluids. The cars rushing past the end of the playground. The taste of the chalk in the air. She opened her eyes and the light dissolved, and her Maths teacher sat at its centre.


The skill of this is that you had already created him in such a way that Gandlaf was there before you told us- in glimpses. Lovely writing-great plot. i need to read these. More soon please 



Author's Response: Oh, thank you ziggy! The reveal of Proust as Gandalf actually happens in Second Chance, but I did try hard to make sure it made sense - it was a lot of work dropping the right hints without giving it all away, so I'm glad you picked up on this! As for the plot, I'm happy you enjoyed it; this 'verse stems from my earliest days in fandom and I think it shows! Modern teenage girl with strange mystical Middle-earth connection as the main character...I tried hard to write outside and around the clich

Narya, that was just fantastic. I really, really thoroughly enjoyed reading this. It is a fantastic follow up to your other story which I can't get enough of so getting this really is a treat. Thank you.

Author's Response: Hi Anwyn! Thank you so much :) I'm glad you enjoyed it, I had fun writing it and exploring the characters a little further!
