Imagine—starlight in such a snowstorm!

Imagine it I can, thanks to you. What a magical story! This is a lovely way to begin our hopeful new year, and I wish you the very best, my friend.

Hello my dear Larner :)
I must say that it was the most cruel of your stories I ever read :)
For a moment I was hoping for Livwen and Frodo and then bah!
The last of his ladies, his last chance for happy love. But of course I should have expected it becouse it was your storyline and I know that your storylines are not cheap and naively sentimental and such :) Of course it was genius story but to see him robbed of so much in live is cruel, even the afterlife seems mot enough for what he lost.
Warm Greetings to you - my fav ff author and to all your friends here :)
I hope to hear smt from you soon :)

Author Reply: Oh, but I missed this, Tallis! I've not been able to send out emails for ever so long, what with having to rely solely on my telephone company's server to get access to my email. It's truly a pain! And with my work schedule now I've not been able to connect to the techs that can advise me what to change in my email client so as to get my mail going as well as coming in.

No, no simple love story for Frodo Baggins, although he did not allow his undesired celibacy to poison his heart as so many seem to do. But I do believe his love for Livwen was rewarded, even if it was not physically consummated.

Thanks so for your patience. Yes, I am here. I am now able to again properly receive my email sorted, and I hope so to be able soon to get mail sent as well as received. I hate computer glitches! It took so long to find where the computer hid my email client after the last surge I received, back in July. Now, to solve the other problem! Aaargh!

Looking for a bit of comfort today, I re-read this. And it brought me to tears, but in a good way.

Thank you again for this lovely treat.


Author Reply: And thanks so for being there for me so many times. Another comment I managed to miss.

Sam needed to set things straight many times, I'm certain; and Pippin would be the first to stand behind him at such moments. Thanks so much, and happy birthday!

So much said in such a short story! Really brilliant.

Writing down what you feel is always a good idea to sort your thoughts and clear your mind. But Frodo went even further and turned the "offending" words into a statement of love and blessing.

Maybe it was kind of a reward that he was granted a glimpse of the future, of Sam and Rosie and their children, just that night.

Author Reply: I suspect it was intended to be a reward of sorts, to know that Sam's first child was now conceived. And I certainly found writing out my frustrations helped to make things easier to sort through in a productive manner.

Thanks so for the comments, and I apologize for being so late in responding, Andrea.

I've just read through this entire series again, backwards, and it's been lovely remembering all the old ones again. Thank you, once more, for sharing your tellings with us.

Author Reply: I am so honored, Freyalyn! Love finding reasons to imagine Frodo Baggins learning more about himself as well as about his friends and the world they lived in.

That's a lot to experience in one short time - rage, grief, relief, joy, love - I'm glad the Ring did not win in the end but love did, as it must, being stronger :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: But yes, Frodo had a full emotional workout on this, with, as you note, Love winning in the end. And I think that the Powers--and the One above the rest--would want for Frodo to realize his own sacrifice has borne fruit. Thanks so!

Oh what a heart-achingly sad look at Frodo's feelings but also a fabulously brilliant example of how a shift in perception can turn grief into joy and lay a blanket of comfort over keenly felt hurt and regret- not to lose those emotions but to have them muted just a little.
Beautifully written as always Larner. Thank you for sharing.

BTW I am having a bit of a 'Larner-fest' at the moment and taking time to re-read your early works. I have just delighted myself with Ties of Family and fondly remember our discussions over 'brothers of the heart'.
Hoping all is well with you and yours.

Author Reply: Thank you so, Liz. Have been reading some of my stories to a new client, who finds them a good distraction from the agonies of a debilitating disease. I wish I could come over. Hope that both your new PM and our so-called President both get their rightful due soon, and that both realms find the peace and return to fulfillment that the Shire knew from the return of the Travellers. Hope that perhaps in a year I might travel your way along with friends who wish to visit England with me to serve as a guide to my favorite haunts.

She came to him, placing a golden sun-star blossom in his hand

Oh, how lovely. Frodo is so brave, so honest, so deserving of healing. No wonder I can't stop writing about it! Thank you for this loving story.

Author Reply: Yes, he is so deserving of being healed indeed. Thanks so, Shirebound!

Aww. Beautifully done. I love that Frodo left the knife behind as a legacy for the family of the hobbit it originally belonged to.

Author Reply: This was a sequel to the previous story in this collection. I rejoice that the knife has come full circle. Thank you so!

Lovely snippit again Larner.
It is the little things that mean a lot don't they?
I thought I wanted to keep my Dad's Police Medal but in the end gave it to my Nephew. Then, unexpectedly, I found his old whistle, (used extensively in pre-mobile phone days,) and that means so much more. I am glad that the knife is a reminder of two such special people.

Author Reply: I can see how important the whistle would be for you--a reminder of a more innocent times, I suppose. And the knife indeed is a reminder of two highly unique and important individuals. Thanks for giving me something to think on.
