Back to Middle-earth 2009 ficlets

Hey Dwimordene!
Thank you so much for these lovely ficlets!  They're all very original and thought-provoking. 
Making amends in particular was an idea that I'd never encountered before - we always think of the Hobbits as much more attuned to the earth than us clumsy humans! 
I also particularly liked 'All she wants to do is dance' - you allow your reader to very much empathise with Eowyn!  And I gave a cheer when she showed Eomer that he isn't right at all...
Once again, thanks so much for writing these!

Hi illereyn,

You're very welcome! I'm so glad you enjoyed the ficlets. 

I'd never really thought there might be a reason to revisit the Old Forest until that prompt, either, so it was a surprise to me, too, that Sam ended up standing there in the glade. 

"All She Wants To Do Is Dance" was pure fun to write - I love to dance, so if it conveys a sense of the release that can be, that makes my day. And naturally, of course, Éomer, arrogant boy, must be shown the error of his way.

Thanks so much for your comments!
