Somehow I missed this one. Interesting! Glad that Ron and others are there as Alex settles into becoming more fully Alex and less the assassin he was before.

Another cockroach, I see. Heh!

This chapter has another one of Vorondur's priceless files. Adaptbility: Cockroach. That made me laugh. Alex still has a lot of ballast. Let's hope, he can overcome it with Ron's and Felicitas' help

P.S. to Fiondil's betas

Thank you.

I mean that fervently. Thank you so much for bringing these chapters to light. It must be especially difficult, not just with the real-life things that interrupt the pleasures of fanfic, but the pain of loss of the conversation that, I'm sure, was a pleasure in itself. (I loved the give-and-take of beta reading, whether I was doing the beta work, or someone else was polishing one of my stories with a careful, loving hand.)

I am grateful each time I check back in hopes of seeing a new chapter; if I see one, I say a quiet "thank you" -- which doesn't do you all a heck of a lot of good, which is why I'm writing this note. If I don't see a new chapter, I send up a prayer for you, knowing how real life can and often will throw us for a loop.

In any event, thank you for all you do. To sort of quote an author whose stories have brought me food for thought, comfort, and wonder: It's much appreciated.

Author Reply: Thank you for your patience and understanding, we appreciate it greatly. It is difficult, we do all have real life jobs and families, not to mention family and personal issues. We all do miss talking to Arthur and getting his unique perspective on the world of Tolkien.

I am so glad that reports of Alex's death were slightly exaggerated! (to coin a phrase)

Fascinating... but also a little unnerving. All these people scattering, many going to Fairbanks, while an undefined sense of menace hovers. Is something potentially catastrophic threatening in Fairbanks, or back "home" in Wiseman, sometime in the near future?

And both Loren and Alex seem to be under some sort of oppression... I get the impression they might end up fighting back-to-back in some future scene.

We still don't know who attacked Loren and left him for dead, or do we?

(I need to go back and re-read the EA series, but just don't have time right now.)

...bringing a fresh supply of coffee, wine, and the best pizza in the Western Hemisphere to the Cliff House.

Alex, Felicity, and Derek died in Glorfindel's dream/nightmare, which takes up the first few chapters of the story.

I'm confused. I thought Alex, Derek, Felicity and some of the elves were killed in an accident. I'm glad to see them back, but would still like to know what happened.
