Ch. 12: Author's Notes

A lovely series of drabble here--and so very, very Feanor, the glimpses we see.  Love Celebrimbor's realization that things were not as he was told in Ennor.

The idea of Sam wandering Tirion is delightful--although the Hobbits were not to have stepped physically on Aman proper, I understand--probably having to do with their mortal frames not being able to withstand the atmosphere of the place.

But the interaction and mutual recognition was perfect!  Just perfect!  And I fear you've set a bunny hopping!  Gads--I DON'T need that right now, with so many unfinished stories as it is!
