6. 6 - When Archetypes Meet (High Priestess and Emperor)

When Archetypes Meet (High Priestess and Emperor)

            I know not as yet what to make of this simple Hobbit who had wished merely to "see Elf Magic."  His eyes are open and guileless where those of his Master are already wary as well as weary.  But there are depths to him that have just begun to be plumbed....

            A simple gardener, or so he has been represented.  But as a gardener his dedication is given to nurturance--and so his Master perceives it as well.  One whose gifts are being awakened by this quest, who will come out of it empowered to the fullness of his potential, even as all is scoured away by the dark flames in the one he serves out of filial love....

            One to watch, I deem, and one more than worthy to be honored when the time comes.  And the Ringbearer already perceives this, while my granddaughter's beloved is coming to appreciate this truth as well.

            Most interesting!
