42. Many thanks from the author
Writing, at least for this scribe, is a two-way street. I know I could not have finished it in what I consider record time, if not for the support of those readers and reviewers at Stories of Arda. Never have I come across such a wealth of wondrous writers/readers. Their support and comments and reviews kept me going. I cannot thank them enough. Nor can I thank Edlyn, whose one comment took me off on a totally different path, Neilia for her hugs, Episcopal Witch (best reviewer ever!), and eiluj, without whose input to the Denethor discussion I wonder where on earth I'd be with this tale!
Baggins Babe, Cathleen, Claudia, daw the Minstrel, Dreamflower, elanor winterflowers, Elea24, Esquire_of_Rohan, Fiondil, Golden, Grey Wonderer, Halrohir, Inkling, irene (my deepest sympathies for the Cat gravitating to Aragorn instead of Faramir, but that would only meet with Faramir's hearty approbation!), Larner, Linda Hoyland, Lynda (aka 6336), meckinock, Pearl Took, Raksha, Rhyselle, Sarasrati, shirebound, Soledad, Surgical Steel, Stefania, Szepilona10, Tari and Tigger.
Those folks at the Fellowship board, Primula, Jimbo Baggins, tahawas, Evermind, Silivren Ithilien, Dandyb, and Tari, along with Linaewen's always loving support. Thank you.
Out of the twenty-two comments here at HASA, TWENTY were from Kitt Otter. I cannot thank her enough for her support.
Ten thousand thanks from Alqualondë and his dutiful scribe, Agape.
