|Nice to see you back, the fanfic world has been quite silent for a good while, at least among my favorite people. I love the source of grace Frodo was Galadriel - allowing her to overcome her temptation and defeat her long-held fantasies of what she would do with the Ring.|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: With my work and my health and other responsibilities, I just don't have the stamina I used to have.
At least she was able to realize what the Ring would do to her and turn away from it.
Thank you so!

|Wonderful, I love it. Aragorn was very special indeed.(My birthday is 7/2.)|
It' been way too long since something was posted to SOA.
Author Reply: Your story is coming, Tari--as I noted to Antane, my stamina isn't what it once was, and there are so many calls upon what time I'm granted.
Have a story I'm working on now and hope to get posted soon. And I so agree--Aragorn is definitely a special Man. No wonder I fell in love with him when I was thirteen!
Take care and God bless!

|I always enjoy your themed stories and this one is no exception. I hope you are well - thank you, as always, for your fantastic stories!|
Author Reply: I'm so glad you like it! It's been a strange, difficult summer, and my asthma has been kicking up terribly since the beginning of May. It's finally getting better, but it's not been fun.
We'll have to meet again soon. You still living where you did?

|Aragorn has had wise teachers, and was brought up well. It speaks well for him that his priority lies in renewing, not in dominating. He will be a worthy recipient of the Elessar.|
Author Reply: Oh, I so agree, Kathy. He knows what's important, and it isn't necessarily power. Yes, no one is more worthy to receive the Elessar than he is.

|I love this title - I love that even the insects which to pay tribute to our heroes. :)|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

|How lovely! I must admit I'm not generally much of an insect fan, but this is very sweet. Thanks!|
Author Reply: Thank you very much. We don't have fireflies here in the Pacific Northwest, but I remember them from my early childhood in Tulsa and from summer visits to relatives in Arkansas. I doubt that those in the Shire ever saw them, so seeing them for the first time must have been quite a surprise!

|So, the fireflies have come out to honor the Ringbearer and his companions!|
Very nice and beautifully written.
Author Reply: Thank you so, Andrea! I remember how much I enjoyed these insects when I was a small child, and catching them in jars!

|You do like butterflies for your Frodo - As do I. As for Glow worms and fire flies "A light in dark places" springs to the mind. Lovely Larner.|
Author Reply: The butterfly has always been associated with Psyche and the spirit, and I am certain that others saw Frodo as being associated with them. As for fireflies--how they would have been drawn, I am certain, to the Evenstar! Indeed a light in dark places! Thank you so!

|What a sweet story. Fireflies in Middle-Earth. They are lucky the little ones allowed them to touch them. |
It was wonderful to see something from you. I wish there was a way to contact the authors who's stories I am reading and inspire them to continue.
Author Reply: Well, at least I got the next chapter of "Enter the Ranger" posted--at last! After the Advent calendar stories and the last two LOTR Community challenges I finally got time to finish that particular chapter. And you can always comment to a story fairly recently posted and we'll get your communication that way, of course.
And indeed the Hobbits were privileges to be able to touch the fireflies.
