Storytelling has always been this way. Stories based on stories based on stories are our myths and legends. Shakespeare wrote his down. We only came up with the idea of intellectual property once money was brought into it.

Just because someone is published, that does not necessarily make them good (check Stephanie Meyer). It does mean that they reach a wider audience, and it means that they can call it their profession and not have to keep a job while they write, but they don’t have anything special that the rest of us do not. They are lucky. Repeat it. Understand what I’m saying because it’s important that we all know what success is, and what it is not. Success in artistic or literary terms is the act of passing on a vision to someone else who may or may not decide to reinterpret it, and that is the only thing that matters in the end.

Author's Response: "Storytelling has always been this way. Stories based on stories based on stories are our myths and legends. Shakespeare wrote his down. We only came up with the idea of intellectual property once money was brought into it." Excellent point. Thanks for reading, pippychick.

I absolutely adore Legolas/Gimli, and I admire those who can write them. This is such a wonderful little gem, and yet I see from the reviews section that you may have a longer fic leading on from this... when can we see it? *g*

Author's Response: My favourite relationship to write actually and they stay such a constant. Thank you for your comment and appreciaition. I am quite fond of this but and it gave me chance to polish it off and put it in a setting on its own, to continue your ind metaphor. Yes- a ne story. Will be out soon... very soon. Next weekend probably.
