A Long and Weary Way: Appendices  by Canafinwe 80 Review(s)

Stories like this should be most treasured! Praise the innocence of children to lighten up burdened adults hearts. So lovely! I can almost see King Éomer collapse in mirth in front of my eyes :-)))

An as well unique as wonderful concept of a disguised female queens guard. I loved the idea of her grandfather Celeborn to be the one to prompt its implementation in the first place. And again you come back to already known and dear characters. What I perceived as a most welcome turn is the fact that the main idea behind it is not so much the queens safety alone as it is meant to be balm to the kings soul.

There is nothing to hold more healing power than forgiveness.

A beautiful way to pick up loose trails (about two- as well as four-legged friends) and weave them back into the overall colourful picture! There is so much light and hope in all of these appendices. In contrary to the dark and grave base-story you admit some bliss for your main character, finally ;-).

As if you had read my heart. To me it has never been in question Faramir & his King could have been anything but close friends.
Now here comes the tale of reason, experience and emotion behind that fact, wonderful! Many thanks!!!

My first thought was of Aragorn in the Morgal Vale and those awful stinking flowers.

That is, in a way, a scary poem. It's a bit... Gollum-like. Things slinking in the dark, leaving only bones and living in slimy places, just like Gollum. I'd quess that you took some inspiration for both him and the surroundings of Mordor from that poem, especially the valley of Minas Morgul.

Ooh, but one can see Gollum lurking beneath the mountains and looking for something to eat in the pools of the Dead Marshes, orcs and Shelob in the Ephel Duath. One can hear Gollum's feet following after the Fellowship through Moria, and smell the reek of the tunnel of Cirith Ungol, hear the whining voices of orcs, fear the violence of all evil creatures drawn to Sauron. I can well understand why this influenced your own writing.

I believe I had them mostly figured out from reading the chapters, but this is most useful. What resources do you use to come up with such wonderful names?

P.S. I know the Appendices are set after the War of the Ring, but I would dearly love to read the moment when Aragorn and Gandalf first realised Gollum was following them in Moria!

Oh! Oh! This was wonderful! A minor eucatastrophe!
