Greetings! I've been looking forward to this for days, having given up hobbity fic for Lent among other things, so taking advantage of Sunday being exempt. :) It's hard to hear Sam's despair since it is his hope that is keeping Frodo going for the most part and if he ever truly lost it and Frodo found out, too easily could they have obeyed the voice Sam hears in Mordor. First time I heard it on the BBC Radio adaptation, I was like that's the way the devil sounds. Another great one, jan-u-wine! :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

It's a very, very real moment in the story, isn't it, Antane? Just like real temptation to despair, to give up. And why not, since Sam is real? :) I love the way Bill Nighy plays Sam on the BBC broadcast version, and this scene is exemplary. I never even knew the thing existed until another LOTR messageboard fan told me about it in 2005. I got it from our library, listened to it, and have been a huge fan of the recording ever since. Nighy's performance in the role was an eye-opener to me, and no mistake!

P.S. Bravo you, keeping away from fannish things week after week! THAT is a Lenten discipline!

thank you so much, Antane! Wish I had more time for writing these days, *sigh*
