Awwww! No wonder he went off the deep end! I really, really love the way you write!
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 8
Awww! That was so sweet!
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 7
You handled that prompt pretty well, I must say!
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 6
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 5
That was funny! I know it wasn't supposed to be, but it made me laugh. Especially the part about Gimli sweet talking Galadriel. And the ending was so good! If she could forgive, so could he. Awesome!
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 4
Cool! As good as "Fish Bones" is, I love this collection even better!
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 3
That was absolutely beautiful! I loved the part about his tears spilling into the sea. Gosh, that was gorgeous!
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 2
"I want to be free; I cannot go through the meaningless motions of one more day in this meaningless, halfway life. Something has to give." That is an awesome line! I can relate to this one, too!
| LornaWinters 11/20/12 . chapter 1
Oh, cool! I didn't realize I missed this little collage! Oh, so good!
Yeah, since I'm an expatriate living in the north, I often curse the snow myself. I can totally relate to this!

Not forgotten, forgiven.
This is so great.
And it takes something for a Noldo to learn forgiveness ...
| Kirunavaara 9/6/12 . chapter 9
That's so sad. They finally made it to the sea and now he can't take her there cause she's gone...
| Kirunavaara 9/6/12 . chapter 8
That's very sweet.:)

Poor Sam! It must've been especially hard for him leave the Shire behind like this.
| The Hobbit's Rhapsody 8/22/12 . chapter 9
Of course Sam would be the one noticing and wondering about the sky, caught up in the differences or lack thereof between “home” and “adventure”. Poor Sam, not knowing everything that has yet to come! (Also, I got totally sidetracked by his use of “Mr.” in front of Merry’s name—I don’t remember if he ever did that in the books; I always assumed he did it to Frodo because they were employer and servant, but I guess Sam does seem a bit conscious of class, as far as hobbits tend to notice that sort of thing. Anyway, not relevant, just a thought.)
Always nice to see a bit of Faramir/Éowyn fluff, even if it’s not quite so philosophical as the other pieces in this series have been!
I love this bit about Denethor and Finduilas. I always enjoy seeing pieces where we get a glimpse of pre-villainous Denethor, and I like that you tied it around a specific location. I think you did a good job of capturing Denethor’s sense of guilt and failure, perhaps an overstated and unjustified one, that was still haunting him in LotR. Very, very nice.

Ah, love this one. You've made me feel incredibly sorry for Denethor, and I loved the glimpse of a strong willed Finduilas.
