These drabbles were a pleasure to read and good luck with MEFAs!
Thank you so much! It is such a thrill to hear from readers who enjoy my drabbles... ;) And I need to start doing my MEFA reviews right away - where have the last few months gone???
I LOVE the balance of POVs--everything from the expected characters, the Elves and Men, to the villains and the beasts.
Ah, thank you! *blushes* I love to write from more.... unexpected PoVs LOLOL!
IMO more people need to write about the Easterlings. Those were some of my favorite drabbles, especially the really sad one about the Balchoth widow!
Ah, I'm so glad you liked them! Tolkien wrote so little about Easterlings, so these are purely figments of my imagination. Unfortunately, they didn't come out well in the Battle of the Field of Celebrant, so any Balchoth drabbles in this series will tend to be sad....
I have 16 more drabbles (this is turning into the drabble equivalent of a novel LOL!) that I haven't posted yet (working on the author's notes...), and three of them are from the Balchoth PoV. I'll try to post them next, since you aren't the only one who has told me they especially like "my" Balchoth.
Thank you for such a pleasant surprise - it really brightened my day!
