Antane, you shower us with riches! Or you shower me. Jan's work is golden, so if you shower riches on her pieces, it only makes what is already rich richer. :) They are wonderful pieces, I agree.

I hadn't thought of Frodo in connection with the moon, either, or not particularly. I think I thought of him in connection with the stars, especially as the hobbit Eardendil. But, having said that, I believe I was thinking of Earendil the character, from the First Age, not the star. :)

Not to worry about the MEFA's. I am sorry they are not going forward if it is only due to one fan's gripe. But it may be that there just aren't enough hands on deck to pull it off again this year. It takes a lot of time merely to read and review pieces. I can't imagine how much volunteer time it takes to put the whole thing together, monitoring it, and answering all the questions, complaints and general feedback.

You've been very good, nominating so much of Jan's work, but it won't harm the quality or quantity of her writing if her achievements are not acknowledged in a public way. She'll just keep writing, just as she has done before the MEFA's were even known about.
