Reviews For Honi soit...
Enjoyed their discussion about English and Daeron being the Pied Piper of Hamlin was a delightful bonus.
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it.
Hi! I just wanted to say I think this was fantastic, and I love the idea of Maglor writing the poem. Daeron's stubborn dislike of the language was amusing, also. I'd like to know how they ended up as roommates!
Author's Response: Thank you! Alas, I've been meaning to write about how they met after the 1st Age and ended up not hating each other after all for... oof... many years now, but somehow, it hasn't yet happened. Maybe at some later point...
Oh to be reminded of my far-off university days on a warm Sunday morning! What a pleasure! Of course, the author of Sir Gawain had to be a real genius with an original outlook on language and poetic forms. Who else but Maglor? Outstanding crossover!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! And yes, "who else but Maglor" was exactly my thought after reading yet another secondary work that praised the genius of the Gawain-poet to the heavens... (This story was written while I should have been writing a paper on Sir Gawain. *shifty eyes*)
"...þat sterres ylonde": Numenor a la Alliterative Revival! Excellent--but what could Daeron possibly have wagered to get Maglor to compose Pearl, Cleanness and Patience as well? The mind boggles...
Author's Response: Heh! I suspect there was no need for further wagering - after this, Maglor had kind of acquired a taste for it. Or maybe after Sir Gawain was (of course! ;)) a huge success at Harry Hotspur's christmas bash, Maglor just got commissioned further works... (that'd explain some of the odd subjects, at least ;))
