A Time of Harvest, September 22nd, 1915

This is a gorgeous story, and a unique twist to the AU genre. First of all, your descriptions of the city and countryside are wonderfully vivid - it's very easy to sense John Tolkien's feeling of "coming home" to the woods, moving from the hustle and bustle of wartime Warwick to the peace and solitude his soul craves for recovery. 

As for the stranger he encounters  in those woods - here your incomparable  descriptive skills shine one again. Clothing, boots, the timbre of his voice, the beauty of his hands, the astonishing revelation of his hair -  that's got to be one of your most spellbinding character introductions! And a very memorable character as well.

The whole story is dreamlike, enchanting, but with a wistful plausibility that The Professor himself would applaud. Well done!

 Yes, punctuation is a wonderful thing!  (And my Beta will know the irony of that admission...  ~_^)

 Thanks very much for the comment, I'm delighted that you enjoyed the story.
