|Well pictured Dreamflower. I, too, like that image. I think it might have come directly from one of the illustrations for the book.|
Author Reply: Thank you! I'm not sure, but I know it is a powerful image.

|They must have been shattered - and so depressed at this point. It's a beautiful image...|
BUT it's such cinematic twaddle - I mean - you're being sought by all and sundry - so you make a point of walking along the skyline in single file so everybody can see you clearly and get the chance of a good shot? It's like those shoot the duck stalls you get at fairs. The Three Hunters do it too. It's amazing they all survived. Somebody must have been on their side! :D

You are right. But, of course, they *were* discouraged and dispirited, and they *did* have to get down off that mountain. And, as Gandalf had already alerted the enemy with his fire-making, I suppose it was worth the risk.
I do love your way of looking at things, LOL!

|Oh, Dreamflower! This has a lot of power! I'm always amazed at how much a drabble can convey. Wonderful!|
Author Reply: It is amazing how much can be conveyed in only 100 words. Thank you!

|This is beautiful--especially since I've recently read throught this bit in the book. Exactly how I imagined it. These poor folk just spent a day of marching, a night in freezing snow, and now walking again toward safety. They're exhausted, cold, and defeated. You caught the emotional tension very well--very well done.|
Author Reply: Thank you; that had to have been one of the hardest parts of the journey, backtracking over the way they'd already gone, and knowing their climb had been in vain.
