A lovely story. Thank you for writing and filling in the blanks. I look forward to reading more of your work.
Author's Response: Thank you! I look forward to that too. And I hope they bring you as much pleasure as this one obviously did. There is no greater reward for a fanfic author than knowing her work is appreciated.
A really beautiful story! I agree, it has to be one of the best LotR fics I have read!
Author's Response: It is one of my very first, and favorites. I am glad you liked it and took the time to tell me so. Comments are all the payment a fanfic writer can get but they are most definitely treasured.
Sarah and Jessica: This is really one of the best fanfiction we read! :D We loved it a lot, and you are a great author! :)
Author's Response: Wow! Thanks! Just when I think this fic has been long forgotten, I get a nice note like this! Thank you so much for letting me know you liked it!
Hi, I've actually read this before and really liked it, I have never posted a review on this site before, it's much easier to do reviews with this new format. So this is my first review, and I say: bravo! More, more! More hobbit stuff please!
Author's Response: *bows* I will happily comply! Thank you for this review and your comments on Night Music - they are the two of mine that get the most positive response. I look forward to seeing what else you have too - and to having a hobbit person of comparable age to chat with!
Wow. That was incredible. This story was great. Wow. The best I've read so far. That was great. Love this story.
Author's Response: *bows* And thank *you* for taking the time to tell me so! I am delighted I have been able to please you with my little tales and I hope you enjoy the rest of the collection too!
I enjoyed this. Very much. I love gapfillers, especially when they're well written and lovely like this.
Author's Response: *bows* I try. As do you! I have been delighting in your works and am very excited to find another excellent and hobbity type writer to read. I am glad to seemingly be providing the same service to you! *grin*
That was beautiful. You kept the tone of Tolkien's work very well, and I think added quite a bit to the story. Everyone was written exceptionally well, and seeing it through unfamiliar eyes that we soon grew to love made it a wonderful and novel experience. The story earned every moment truthfully, as well as every smile that must grace the face of a reader as the story progresses. The level of detail is wonderful and the tone you adopt meshes perfectly with that of the original. It really seems like a missing part of the story has now been filled. A joy to read and a lovely job.
Author's Response: Thank you very much Tathrin. I can honestly say nothing pleases me more than to hear that something I have written has given pleasure. My absolutely favorite kinds of fanfics are the ones that sound like a missing piece of Tolkien's own work, so I am delighted to have provided you with that seems to fit that bill for you!
A bitter-sweet and poignant story. That gap certainly needed filling, and I think this is a good job.
Also, to go slightly off-topic here...that picture was wonderful.
Author's Response: Thank you! This was an image (both story and illustration) I had hoped that Mr. Jackson would provide me, but on the chance that he didn't, I figured I'd better do so myself. I am delighted you enjoyed it.
