|Queen Galadriel||Reviewed Chapter: 146 on 9/8/2006|
|Oh, wow. Oh, wow. *shudders* What a horrible, horrible thing to find in that box. No wonder poor Sam was sick. I'd be too, if I'd watched the Ring and the thing it hung on wounding my dearest friend for so long. And the blood and hair...oh...Part of me really wants to know what that chain looks like, and the other part wonders even if it were possible, if I could bring myself to find out. I think *I* need a drink now-but not of Brandy.|
And now I'm going to backtrack. It seems I missed a lot. I love all the author notes-very well thought out! How sweet that Frodo's "little lad and lasses" get to have some of his parents' things. He'd be so pleased. And the impromptu dance was great, and just what was wanted! Now I want to learn the mouth harp! I'd have to find some kind of guide on how to play, though-those things look so complicated! Yea! We get two more chapters! *cheers* And I have to agree with Elemmire; the tale of the chain would be very fastenating to read in more detail. I'd love to know what went through Frodo's mind when presented with such a decision, heartbreaking as it must be, and what the one who discovered the chain thought when he (or she...but I'm assuming there probably were no female healers around at that point) thought at that moment.
Author Reply: Yes, to see that chain, which they all thought had been long gone, still around, and covered with Frodo's blood and some of his hair--pretty sick-making, most especially for Sam, who, as you said had to watch what it did to him day by day. True, it was the weight of the Ring--but it was the chain that bound the Ring to him.
I'm glad you are enjoying the Author Notes. They really are intended to be a part of the story!
And I'm so glad you are enjoying the other parts!
As to that story--maybe someday!

|Wow...awesome! You ladies have illustrated this brilliant story so very well! I would love to read the tale where Gandalf and Aragorn discover the chain around Frodo's neck and discuss (with Frodo) what to do with it. :-)|
Author Reply: It's possible, maybe, sometime in the future. We've a couple of other things to deal with first, though.
I'm glad you are enjoying the Author's Notes--we intended from the start for them to be an integral *part* of the story!
