From Wilderness to Cities White  by Larner 9 Review(s)

I can'r really understand how I missed reading this one Larner even with all that has being going on in my life. What a lovely, lovely gap-filler. I have often wondered why the Prof did not have Frodo offering the Ring to Elrond as the third ring-bearer. Could it be that Elros, had he not chosen mortality, would have been the ring's custodian instead of Elrond? (Ha! Another Bunny let loose!)

Author Reply: Ooh, and such a fetching bunny it is! So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you so!

Oh, a new story just published!
I will read it soon, but at the moment I prefer to continue "Second mum". However, I promise that this collection of stories will be part of my list :-)

Author Reply: I am so sorry to be so late in responding, but real life is not being easy on me lately. Am so glad you like "Second Mum"--one of the stories I love best of my own works.

And never shall I ever again think of mortals as being of lesser value in the eyes of Ilúvatar than are the Eldar.

Very nice! When the conversation started it was all about Frodo, but Galadriel expertly used it to find out more about Aragorn's intentions.

And in the end she decides that he is ready to receive the Elessar stone and the kingship. I totally agree with her!

Author Reply: We know that she was the one who conveyed the Elessar stone to him, and I do think she would wish to reassure herself that Arwen had indeed made the right choice.

Thank you so, Andrea!

Nice to see you back, the fanfic world has been quite silent for a good while, at least among my favorite people. I love the source of grace Frodo was Galadriel - allowing her to overcome her temptation and defeat her long-held fantasies of what she would do with the Ring.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: With my work and my health and other responsibilities, I just don't have the stamina I used to have.

At least she was able to realize what the Ring would do to her and turn away from it.

Thank you so!

Wonderful, I love it. Aragorn was very special indeed.(My birthday is 7/2.)

It' been way too long since something was posted to SOA.

Author Reply: Your story is coming, Tari--as I noted to Antane, my stamina isn't what it once was, and there are so many calls upon what time I'm granted.

Have a story I'm working on now and hope to get posted soon. And I so agree--Aragorn is definitely a special Man. No wonder I fell in love with him when I was thirteen!

Take care and God bless!

I always enjoy your themed stories and this one is no exception. I hope you are well - thank you, as always, for your fantastic stories!


Author Reply: I'm so glad you like it! It's been a strange, difficult summer, and my asthma has been kicking up terribly since the beginning of May. It's finally getting better, but it's not been fun.

We'll have to meet again soon. You still living where you did?

Aragorn has had wise teachers, and was brought up well. It speaks well for him that his priority lies in renewing, not in dominating. He will be a worthy recipient of the Elessar.

Author Reply: Oh, I so agree, Kathy. He knows what's important, and it isn't necessarily power. Yes, no one is more worthy to receive the Elessar than he is.
