Amid the Powers and Chances of the World

Argg! How cruel their faith!

I did love how you used Sam to be our "eyes" on the narrative in this chapter of our lovers growing pain while listening to the elves song. He is a caring little Hobbit who sees a great deal of what goes around him . Brilliant.

Our two lovers have a great deal of pain ahead of them , but can i be hopeful that things will get better? That someone, perhaps Sam will have comforting words for both of them?

i love the new chapters, but i hurt with them.

Zauza - oh, I know, I hurt too! I´ve made myself cry more than once with the latter chapters of this fic!

Don´t give up hope; any more than that I couldn´t possibly say...

I´m glad having Sam as the POV character for the feast scene worked for you. I tried writing from various POVs and as soon as I hit on Sam´s it all came together much more easily - because he can easily stand in for the reader as a caring but outside viewpoint, I think, and also because (as Julie pointed out some chapters back) he seems to be the only one of the Fellowship who´s picked up some of the Rowanna-and-Legolas vibes...

Ohmanohmanohman, way to torture your characters! And your readers...  Really like Sam as POV character--great choice!  Also great the way things joyful for others are so distressing for R & L.  I mean, great for the story, hardly for them!

DrummerWench - I did warn you the Witch of the Woods would have nothing on me... You little devil!

But then how can you have lovely angst and drama and tension (I hope, anyway!) unless I am horrible to them once in a while...

Glad Sam works for you, as he seems to have done for others - I have had this scene in my head for as long as the fic has existed (my big dramatic climax!), but until I came to write it out hadn't settled on the POV; writing it from Sam's POV seemed to flow really easily, which is usually a good sign I find. Glad you liked it!
