Now it is my turn to stand by you.

That was beautiful! Thank you very much.

Happy Easter! Christ is risen! He is truly risen!

Of course I love this, Frodo waiting for Sam to be ready.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: He has risen indeed! Alleluia!

Yes, I do believe that Frodo would have wanted for Sam not to feel alone as they both went through their final stages of healing and found themselves anticipating what was to come! And thank you so, Antane!

, I did not wish for you to find yourself alone here, the only mortal amongst the immortals.

Truly, that must be a very strange life. This is a loving and love-filled little scene.

Author Reply: I agree--it must have been difficult at times for Frodo; but the beauty and peace with which he was surrounded he so needed for his own healing. And it must have been wonderful to feel he was now giving back so much for what Sam had given up for him.

Beautiful short story. I can almost imagine a cute rosy cheeked plumpy elfling with her wide starry eyes describing the periannath to her amme... adorably cute!

Author Reply: Thank you so, Aranadhel, and forgive me for being so late in responding--I cannot say how this managed to slip by me as it did!

Solemnly Livwen nodded. “But, what does mortal mean?”

How sad she will be when first Bilbo and then Frodo have to go at last!

But on the other hand she will always have happy memories she can remember them by. And without a relationship between those three their lives would have been much duller, I think.

Author Reply: At least the partings she will know from Bilbo and Frodo, and Sam and in time Gimli as well, will be blessed, and not marked by the too common grief and shock and pain known by those who die in the mortal lands. And you are surely right--all three lives are fuller for their friendships!

I would imagine some of those in the Undying Lands would have been a bit shocked to see two hobbits get off the ship.

Author Reply: Oh, but I so agree, Tari! Thank you!

Sweet little story! I love the description of Frodo's fea. :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: I am certain it felt rather tattered and torn at the time. At least it had the chance to heal completely. Thanks so!

Oh, my.

Heart-wrenching. And yet so sweet.

Author Reply: I'm so glad you think so, Lindelea! Hope to have the feedback on Ch. 1 back to you tonight. Busy day!

Wow! What a powerful start. Redemption for all including Melkor. I love the way you portrayed Eru and look forward to reading more.

Author Reply: Yes, even Melkor was beloved by Atto, I believe. As for how I portrayed Eru--well, He is more than we can ever fully appreciate. Thanks so much, Tari!
