An Unexpected Adventure  by KathyG 3 Review(s)

One thing I always love about Tolkien's Elves is that they make everything with care and beauty. I'm glad Jennifer noticed that. I like the names you chose for knives, very fitting for one there in a special mission from God. I like how vehemently Kevin refused to leave his Bible behind. It's easy to forget just how fragile and valuable books used to be, especially before the printing press, so I can understand Elrond's reluctance to risk a book getting damaged, loremaster that he is. I think a pair of scissors would be very helpful on the quest. It was not very honest of Joey to hide his mask like that, although I do wonder how that might prove helpful on the quest. I wonder where Jennifer's stick is hiding. Poor little Frodo in the story.

Author Reply: Poor Frodo, period! It was such a brave thing that he volunteered to do, but it cost him dearly; as he later said, he saved the Shire, but not for himself.

Yes, the McClouds will definitely need a Bible! Good point about the fragility and value of books back in the old days. If worst came to worst, it would be easy for Kevin to replace his Bible back in Portland, but in Middle-earth--not so easy to do! =) K.G.

Author Reply: Oh, BTW, I think you skipped a chapter! It appears you didn't read Chapter 11. Might want to go back and read that chapter before you pick up where you left off!

Almost time to say farewell to Kaylee and Lucy then, and the rest of Imladris. Will we be finding out how Kaylee is doing back with the Elves, or will that have to wait until the end, I wonder? I'm particularly attached to little Kaylee Anne McCloud, you know :)

I loved this chapter a lot, especially Arwen teaching Jennifer how to use her knives, and all the presents. The cover for their Bible was especially wonderful! :) And Kaylee's surprise at having a present, too.

Author Reply: Not to worry; there will be Rivendell scenes featuring Kaylee interspersed with the Quest scenes. So you'll get to find out how little Kaylee's faring!

I'm glad you've enjoyed this chapter!

A satisfying last day, in its way. It will be hard to leave Kaylee behind, but she will have much to learn now that she dwells alone amongst the Elves and Bilbo.

Author Reply: She sure will! And that's a fact. Arwen and Bilbo, in particular, will have much to teach her.
