Branwyn's Bric--Brac  by Branwyn 4 Review(s)

The hunter is about to become the hunted, or at least the attacked and slaughtered.

Excellent descriptions of the natural beauty (ironic for such a fateful moment).

Author Reply: Tolkien says the Ring was lost in the Gladden Fields. Gladdon is the name of an iris which is also called the sword lily (hence my imagery of swordlike green leaves.) The name is an obvious wordplay by Tolkien since the Gladden fields were a place of battle.
Uh, what was I rambling on about, anyway? :-)
Thanks for your kind words!

Now - which one is the unwary creature? Which the hunter and which the hunted?

Author Reply: How long had the Ring been waiting in that spot? Hundreds of years? There must have been many times when people passed by that spot and left without seeing the bait at the bottom of the river.
Thanks for reviewing. :-)

A wonderful vignet setting up the finding of the Ring by Deagol.

Author Reply: Thanks so much! Poor Deagol, though he was the luckier of the two of them.

THIS was NEAT - incredible - gave me shivers!!!!

May I share it on another board? I'd give you full credit?

Author Reply: Certainly, I am happy that you think it is good enough to share.
Deagol and Smeagol are so pathetic, just a pair of innocents who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Thanks for your kind comments!
