7. Author's Notes/Elvish translations

A/N

Well, I started it, anyway.  My probably-going-to-be-huge AU "What if [X] took the Ring?" version with Legolas.

Also, the first story for which I actually wrote notes ... and followed them.

Just in case anyone was wondering (which they probably weren't): the word "ring" isn't capitalized in the first few chapters when referring to the One Ring because the people referring to it aren't aware/certain that it is a Ring of Power.  I don't think Bilbo knew about the Rings of Power, but even if he did, to quote Gandalf "there are many magic rings in this world".

Author's thanks (even though it isn't finished yet):

Firstly, to God, Who gives inspiration.  Please help me make this have a point.

Thanks to J. R. R. Tolkien, for writing the wonderful books

Thanks to Christopher Tolkien, for giving permission to make the wonderful movies.

Thanks to my sister 'Arin', for her support in putting up with my travels into the (better left) untraveled regions of space and Arda.

Thanks to my Ada, who's proofread and pointed out when I crossed the line without being mean about it.

Ta thenin, gwador-nin: that is true, my brother

Adar: Father

Pe-channas!: idiot [lit. lacking intelligence]
