|I must have missed this one on Great Tales - I like this, how true. You know which other two I like even more. :) |
Have you read Toward the Gleam? I would think you would find it interesting and enjoyable. I certainly did!
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

|Moved over here, and not surrounded by other extraneous attempts, these do have much more context than they did at the challenge site. Chronological order helps too.|
Wonderful answer to the challenge, of course. I still think my favorite is Gimli's. Terse, and quite like what he'd be thinking.
(BTW: I also like your answer to the snippy anonymous reviewer. Terse, and much more polite than what *I'd* be thinking.) ;-)
Author Reply: As soon as I realized I could do a set of nine, I wanted to get them published somewhere else as a collection. Thank you so much!

|These were very evocative. Do you know the legend that Hemingway once wrote a six-word short story? "For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn." These seem to me to be in the same genre, all the better for their sparseness.|
Author Reply: Yes, I do--in fact, that short story is what inspired the challenge that got me to write these. It's a real challenge, that's for sure, and it forces you to think about packing as much information into as few words as possible.
Thanks for reviewing!

|Ah: chronological order. I'm glad you mentioned that. Thank you for explaining.|
Author Reply: You're welcome! That one's a little bit harder to pick up on than the theme of the whole piece, and, as I said, I wanted to present these to the readers without any extra information.

|No, this one is Pippin. What a memory to carry with him ever after.|
Author Reply: That's it!

|Hmm--this one's intent tends to evade me, unless it is her image on coins that may keep her memory alive. Alas for Arwen in the end in many ways.|
Author Reply: No, you got it!

|Alas for our Sam--not all wounds heal, as his Master might have told him.|
Author Reply: No, but I have to believe that this one mostly did.

|Our beloved Fool of a Took, awakening at Cormallen? Or Merry in the Houses of Healing?|
Author Reply: Which one happened in the books?

|Ah--so this is Legolas, and the other our beloved Frodo.|
Author Reply: Yes, you got it!

|But Boromir did, alas.|
Author Reply: Unfortunately, yes.
