Antane's Anthology  by Antane 5 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 10 on 1/29/2007
Oh, yes--definitely the thoughts of the two of them, one seeking to protect, the other to preserve and strengthen, each as he was made.

Author Reply: Indeed - two halves of the same whole. Thanks for reviewing!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

OH my goodness! How do you strike that cord in the heart that just makes me want to weep? THat was such a beautiful depiction of the struggle Frodo has, and Sam's unfailing love. It's like the love of Our Father, isn't it? Never ending, never fading and indelible. I just learned that word. I love it! It's so much fun to say. Indelible. Indelible. Indelible. :) Sorry. WOrds just bring me such joy. Guess that's why they say I'm cracked.
Your Frodo

Author Reply: Hantanyel, dearest! I don't write much LOTR poetry - their expressions of love come out better in prose I've found - but that's one of the very things I wrote when I started doing LOTR fic. Glad you enjoyed! Sam's love is indeed God's love.

Namarie, God bless, Melinyel, Antane :)

Author Reply: Sorry I meant to say this poem is one of the very *first* things I wrote.

Oh wow, so poignant! I can see these thoughts running through their minds during the moment in TTT when Sam asks about food and how will there be enough to get home, or something to that effect, and Frodo replies that if they can "do the job" that's all they can do. Sam agrees, but with tears, and you just know he's still clinging to that bit of hope. Lovely.
God bless,

Author Reply: Hantanyel, ammelda! Glad you enjoyed!

Oooooo *wraps blanket around herself to keep down the goosebumps* lovely!!

Author Reply: Hannon le, my dear! I love the expression Frodo gives his Sam when his dear says "For the journey home." It hasn't occured to Sam that they won't be returning, though Frodo gave up that hope long ago, but he doesn't say anything, doesn't ruin Sam's hope. I think the best part in a movie chock full of best parts - the whole thing is like one big huge favorite scene - is when Sam gives the last of the water to Frodo and Frodo says "There'll be nothing left for the return journey", and Sam says "I don't there'll be a return journey," then silently offers his hand to get Frodo up and they continue on.

You asked some time ago after I sent a review of Light about whether I had any training in psychology and I keep forgetting to answer so while I'm thinking of it - no, I don't but I did many years ago do a lot of research into multiple personalities and retain some of that information, quite interesting.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
