Once again I’m deeply touched my dear. Tolkien’s text, your wonderful screencaps (Elijah Wood did an incredible job, didn’t he? Though he was so very young at this time he always takes my breath away in what he was doing. The melancholy especially in this scene makes me tremble, whenever I’m watching it – Frodo in perfection and very very close to the books) – and the incredible story of Pearlette

“And why, at times, an inner light seemed to illuminate his sensitive, finely drawn features. And why the deep quietness in him seemed to grow even deeper.”

Gorgeous, very quiet and so very sad.

Thanks to you both, I wanted to write more but I’m too moved. *sigh*

Thank you for posting, Julchen. They are two beautiful, moving, lit-from-within Frodos: one in visual images, one in images made of words.

I love this story so much. It makes me very weepy, of course, yet more than many fics, and more even than the canon text, it fills me with hope for Frodo's fate in Tol Eressea. Just as all along the Valar have been watching over him, guiding, encouraging, sustaining, consoling, they will do so there, especially, I suspect, Elbereth, who appears to have made herself his special patron. "A star shines on our meeting," she will say to him in the age-old greeting, and it will be true.
