For Arwen, there are still aspects of her newly acquired mortality that she must learn from first-hand experience. But her husband is good at helping her find the beauties of this new look at reality.

What a beautiful story, and such a difficult lesson for Arwen to begin to grasp.

Author Reply: Thank you so much.

Oh, what a delightful combination of prompts you've responded to, and how well you've done so! How deep an impression this Hobbit had on Elrond's house!

Awww. "If I close my eyes..."

A nice sentiment.

Arwen took his hand and looked into his eyes. Her gaze was filled with love. Even after all these years, it still made his heart soar. Truly, they were destined for one another, maybe since the first notes of the Great Music of Creation sounded.
Again, a perfect ending to a thought-provoking chapter.

Author Reply: Thank you so much. I'm pleased you liked it.

I can understand Eowyn's response at first, and find respect for her later understanding and determination to cherish the time.

How wise Aragorn is, as Arwen observes here. He is even wise enough to know the limits to his wisdom.

“Let us bring the children here this afternoon,” said Arwen. “We shall have a contest to see who can catch the most leaves.” She laughed merrily, her melancholy blown away like the leaves upon the autumn breeze.
A nice note to finish the chapter.

I love Faramir's sense of wonder, expressed in his enjoyment of a sun-sparkling, dew-glistening spiderweb.

Regarding this:
Then there was that monstrous spider we slew that stung you in Lossarnach.”
Is this in one of your stories, by chance?

Ah, I'm with Faramir.

"You can touch them if you wish. I know you will be careful."
I know just how he felt -- I felt much the same way when an exhibition came through our local library with original pages from the Gutenberg Bible. Of course, they were under glass, untouchable. But just to see them. Whew.

"a feast of stories" -- lovely turn of phrase, and so true.

I liked this chapter? but it seemed a little short to me. It felt like it kind of came to a sudden end rather than showing the children's responses to the Bilbo evening....Still, always good to see you working on this. Thanks for your hard work on it.

Author Reply: Thank you. It was written for a prompt during a challenge where I was somewhat pushed for time. There will be another chapter.
