1. From Marta

Posted By: Marta
Audience: General

Message: Hi Oshun,

I am working on an idea but it isn't working out very neatly yet. I will ponder it some more, to see.

In the meantime, your request did remind me of an old drabble I wrote last year, that I hope you will enjoy as well. It's based on the song sung after Frodo and Sam awake at Cormallen.

Praise Them!
Denethor was a good master. My leg, twisted from birth, kept me from riding a horse or stepping aside to escape a sword's blow, but he accepted me as herald. Yet the king is a better lord still. I can see it in the sheen in his eye. I shall be proud to serve him all of my days.

What of those halflings before him? We owe them all our lives, but they would not accept such a tribute. So I shall weave them into legend. My sons' sons will learn their names.

"Praise them," I cry, "with great praise!"
