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.

What an enchanting chapter! I loved the way you linked the fireflies with the time when Aragorn and Arwen plighted their troth.
I particularly enjoy any of your stories that include Aragorn!
Many thanks. X

Author Reply: I first fell in love with Aragorn back when I first read LOTR back when I was thirteen years old; and here I am over fifty years later, and I STILL love him!

Thank you so very much, Kath!

Wow what a nice Story....

Now for Boronaur hint hint

Author Reply: Thanks! And although I do wish to finish "Enter the Ranger," I do hope to write something about Boronaur soon. Heh!

What a darling story. Do you have anymore like it?

Author Reply: I am working on the last few chapters of "Enter the Ranger" in which I give a different story of how Aragorn returned to his own people, and hints are given in other stories as to how young Aragorn dealt with his fellow trainees when he first returned to the northern Dunedain. But the one who received this as her Yule Exchange gift had specifically asked for one in which we might see cultural clashes between those from different places, and this was what came out of that request. Thanks so for the compliment!

This is delightful, and I'm so glad to read it again! Long live the Yule Dwarf tradition, and a very happy New Year to you.

Author Reply: I just felt it ought to be here among my own writing. Thank you!

I do remember this fun tale with its deeper insight into Aragorn's first interactions with his own people. Very glad to see it published here and to be reminded of it. With greetings and many good wishes for 2017. May you be inspired to write something involving Brendi and Narcissa in honour of your new puppy.

Author Reply: I will certainly try, Liz. Thanks so!

Ah, another who learned you do not insult the Ring-bearer and get away with it. I almost feel sorry for him, at least a little, though he certainly was rude before and if he knew better, he would not have done it and certainly not offended the king too! Dear me. He won't be doing either again. Sorry to be so late in reviewing here.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Oh, yes, he is learning, I hope! And I'm sorry to be so late responding!
