Title: And She Slept

I had to reset my password just to comment on this, as I've been out of the loop a long time and couldn't remmber it... I love this story, Brooke!  Great to see an interaction between Bombadil and the River Woman. The icy conditions, and how a river spirit would interface with ice, are beautifully painted. I also like the image of Bombadil as attached to the land, almost as though it's an extension of himself (or he of it), that's always how I've pictured him. Well done!



Author's Response:

Thank you, Huin! I can sympathize with forgetting passwords - I feel like I end up resetting one every few months, because I'm out of the loop and forget. I'm glad Bombadil is how you've always pictured him, and that you like how the River-woman is portrayed as a river spirit interfacing with ice.

Interesting conversation between those two, Brooke!

I like that Tom is polite to her.

And I really like your description of the Riverwoman, both the fox and the scarier parts.



Author's Response:

Thank you, Himring!

Tom and her are friends, of a sort - and even if they weren't, Tom respects her.

I'm glad you like both the fox and the scarier parts of her - she is basically the personfication of a river, so she should be both helpful and capable of ultimate destruction. :P

ooh... i was feeling all warmed by the way she melted the ice for the fox, and then you mentioned her other set(s) of eyes and i got such a jolt ! i shake my digital fist at you !

yeah, that sounds pretty convincing. sold ! 



Author's Response:

Lol, thank you! I'm glad it was pretty convincing. I feel like the Valar would be pretending to be elf like already, but there has to be some beings before any elves/humans/etc are there that would just be all "You know what? Until they're here, I'm doing what I want, even if that's living in a stream and having sets of eyes reflecting everywhere from ice".
