|Dreamflower's Dribs and Drabs by Dreamflower||6 Review(s)|
|Queen Galadriel||Reviewed Chapter: 14 on 4/2/2009|
|The foreshadowing in this is what makes it scary, because we know he will feel it again...but again it will be overcome.|
Author Reply: Yes, it will indeed be overcome. But it had to feel horrid at the time!

|Scary! But another thing meant to happen. It would have been scarier if Merry hadn't taken that sniff and been able to warn the others.|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: Oh, most certainly! And I think there was even more to it than that: after all, Merry will be the only person to ever help slay a Nazgul. (The others perished at the destruction of the Ring.) I think that this encounter may have been a factor.

|So proper for Merry. This one expresses what happened to Merry so very well.|
Author Reply: When I started trying to think of scenes to dribble for this series, this one was the first that came to mind. I'm glad you think I caught it well.

|The "what is hope?" line really hit me and immediately brought to mind Merry's future experiences with the Nine--"Are you going to bury me?" and such. Which is doubtless what you intended.|
Author Reply: Yes--you will notice I did work in a line from that part: "a mist of tears and weariness" always struck me as a phrase that so perfectly described his despair. I would have liked to use the "Are you going to bury me?" line as well, but wasa constrained by the dribble format.

|This is an amazingly chilling piece, Dreamflower!|
Author Reply: "Chilling" was exactly what I was aiming for. Thank you!
