Dreamflower's Mathoms III  by Dreamflower 161 Review(s)

Yay! DM3 has appeared! :D I am so excited!!!!!!!!!

Pippin IS a kindly soul, and he will continue to be! That is no bad thing - he will make an EXCELLENT Thain, and I would LOVE to see Rosamunda and Duenna get this thrown in their faces later! By the way, is Duenna Rosamunda's brother's wife, or her husband's sister? I don't recall meeting Duenna before, so you know how I am...*grin*

I have been terrible at reviewing, for which I am very sorry indeed :( I shall try to do better! Especially with a new Mathom-house to engage me!

Hope to see a sequel, or at least more Mathoms soon! What have you been up to? And how is Aunt Dora? How is her Book? :)

Author Reply: Yes, the first story in the next hundred, LOL! Hope I can fill it up.

Duenna is Ferdinand's wife--I do not believe I have ever named her before (I hope I haven't, else I will have to change something), but I think she's one who spent too much time at the Great Smials under Lalia's influence (which also goes for Rosamunda, who pretty much grew up under Lalia's thumb) and thus has a skewed notion of propriety and status. They would find the more relaxed and sensible attitudes of Paladin and Egalantine to be out of place, because all they knew for years was Lalia's notion of the Took's importance.

(BTW, I also introduced a new family member in my last chapter of "Eleventy-one": Isengar's wife Citrine. I've yet to decide if they have any children.)

Is there such a thing as "terrible at reviewing"? I don't think so. I am pleased with any reviews I get, whether immediate or a little further down the road. And I always enjoy yours especially, for they are so enthusiastic!

I'm sure there will be more soon--so long as the monthly challenges keep up, there will be!

I've been concentrating a little more on young Dora in "Eleventy-one" and discovering what she was like as a child. But I have not forgotten that she has a little bit more to go in her Book of Manners.
