Ahhh! another great story that has taken me far to long to start to read. But I can say with out a doubt that it needs a tissue warning! (BURSTS INTO TEARS AGAIN)

I'm so honored you like it, Peregrin-Ionad.  Thank you.  And, yes, it is filled with pathos, and deliberately so.

The story is a lovely, leisurely exploration of loss and redemption and loss. It is not for those who know of LOTR only from the movies; indeed one needs to have read the appendices of LOTR to know and appreciate all the characters. There is an italicized section in one of the chapters that appears to be an uploading error, but which dovetails neatly with the author's unique and fascinating vision of the Halls of Waiting. This story is well worth a read for anyone who has a little patience and isn't looking for continuous explosions :)

I too, have played with variable time in my stories (not yet published), but this tale takes that notion in entirely different directions from my own ideas, which may be why I am so enthralled by it.
