The Cusp of Victory  by Kara's Aunty 3 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 11 on 8/27/2010
Holy water over the current greatest symbol of evil--MOST interesting! What a baptism this will be! How will the child of Fire encased in the metal of Earth react to the Water of Light? Bless him for the thought! Ulmo and Varda combined with the cooperation of Aule against Aule's former servant's creation!

Author Reply: Hello Larner,

wow! I never thought of the desperate deed in those terms before: the Valar versus the One Ring through the mediums of the water of light and metal. Brilliant. You are so poetic, m'dear!

Glad you liked the twist. That's our Sam - always thinking on his toes (or his knees, in this case).

Thanks very much for R & R-ing,

M ;)

Wow! That was an unexpected use of the Phial!

Now I'm at that point again where everything seems to be possible, not for the first time in this story ;-)

I still hope for the best! Please update soon!

Author Reply: Hello Andrea,

Sam's use of the Phial caught me off guard at first, too. And now we'll have to wait and see if it will help him to get the Ring before the Nazgūl do, and thus save Frodo, or if the Light of Eärendil will do nothing more than make the Ring all nice and shiny-like ...


Thanks for R & R-ing, m'dear - I'm so glad you're enjoying the fic!

Oh, cool, cool, cool! That's our Sam! So inventive! I love that prayer. You better update sooner and I so appreciate that you have done so recently. This is such a neat story and I hope it wins a well deserved MEFA too!

Namarie, God bless, Your happy berry :)

Author Reply: Hello, cousin dear!

Oh, I'm SO excited that Sam's clever use of the Star-glass is going down so well! He's a flaming genius, methinks (though he'd never admit to it, bless him).

But what will happen to the Ring now? Does Sam even actually know? If he does, I wish he'd tell me, or I'll never get the next chapter up (no matter how quickly you want it).


Thanks for all the supportive feedback on CoV, and for your MEFA wishes! I'm so pleased you like it so much :o) I'll see if I can get another chapter up today (but I'll need to shuffle off and write it first ...).

Thanks for R & R-ing, Tooky Bloom/Slugger,

M ;)
