Thank you, Lynx of Isengard, for reading and commenting on my various little tales!  I'm so glad you like them.  *thinks* I don't believe there's much bloodshed in my tales--I'm a bit squeamish that way!  If you like tales involving Dwarves, check out Adaneth's stories: start with Rock and Hawk.  About Snow-white and Rose-red, heh, I took some left turns away from that, right?

Hi DrummerWench, it's Tilly from Mark Reads.

These are diverse and lovely! After the one you linked to I read them all. They're not only fun in their own right, but also from picking out the influences and admiring the way you put them all together and transform them. I especially loved "The Swans"; it's like the expanded origin myth I always wanted for the house of Dol Amroth but could never articulate for myself. Smile

Thank you, Leonora, for your kind and thoughtful comments!  I'm so happy you read and enjoyed my stories, and that you liked the way I play with the fairy tale tropes and traditions.  I was going to post a link to "The Swans" during --- where Legolas sings about Nimrodel, but got busy, etc.  Maybe when we meet Prince Imrahil I'll have another chance ...
