"Man-dappled blood"--what a wonderful turn of phrase, at so many levels!

Cheers--

Hi Adaneth!

Thank you so much! Your comment did indeed cheer me, tremendously!

The word limits on drabbles can be a challenge. We must find ways to say a lot in few words, rather than many -- but I find that sometimes this is liberating, rather than constraining... Thank you for recognizing this!

Thank you for this wonderful update!  There are two parts I particularly love - Galadriel's musings on the fate of the males in her family, destined to be warriors; and Elrohir's thoughts as they cross the Anduin that all their training was focused on that moment.  It's a chilling thought.

I love the lembas blessing too - the qualities and strengths it confers seem to sum up the twins so well!

Hi Jay!

Thank you for this wonderful update!

You're very welcome! I actually wrote the new drabbles a couple of months ago, but Real Life got in the way... I really had to force myself to polish them and finish the Author's Notes.

There are two parts I particularly love - Galadriel's musings on the fate of the males in her family, destined to be warriors; and Elrohir's thoughts as they cross the Anduin that all their training was focused on that moment.  It's a chilling thought.

Thank you! Yes, the twins come from a long line of warriors who mostly didn't live out their full lives... and who were obsessed with protecting what they value, for good or bad. I am trying to show how the twins became obsessed with protecting all Free Peoples; which I think is considerably more honorable than protecting jewels....

I love the lembas blessing too - the qualities and strengths it confers seem to sum up the twins so well!

Thanks! I really struggled with that blessing, and it doesn't really sound all that Elven to my ear... but I think it suits the occasion well enough.

Jay, I so appreciate hearing that you enjoyed the drabbles, and especially which parts pleased you most. Your comments have really made my day... Thank you!

The warriors are now keen to be about their trade.
