Light in the Depths  by Ellynn 5 Review(s)

Cool look at the beauteous influence of the Silmarils on the world. I believe Dr. Boccocio is a nod to Fiondil. Who does Dr. Fox refer to?

Thanks for the review! And yes, dr. Boccacio is Fiondil. It felt right to pay some tribute/respect to him in this way.
Dr. Fox is my wonderful beta. <3

The Valar are wise to yet keep it for the sea creatures! They only use it unwittingly to live. Lets keep us ignorant a while more to their existens.
I love your idea for the Silmarils to illuminate the world . Maybe even the reflecting light in my cats eyes stems from the Silmarils!😀😻

Author Reply: *giggles about cat eyes* :)))

Thanks for reading and reviewing, I'm glad you like this! :)

Oh, Ellynn, what a wonderful look at what the two Silmarilli have wrought for these students of the world, and how much amusement they have given the two Valar. Lovely!

Author Reply: Thank you so much for your kind words, I'm glad you like it! :)

P.s. I hope you'll read this, because I know notifications don't work. I tried to contact you by e-mail. And because notifications don't work (most of the time), I wanted to tell you that I left several reviews for "Enter the Ranger" - I love it!!!

Oh, but what a lovely imagining! I've watched videos of deep-sea dives into the marine trenches, and the amazing variety of life that they've found. One sea creature that has always intrigued me was the little fish that carries a light on a long extension in front of its face, almost as if it is carrying a lantern to light its path as it swims along. And the many, many varieties of minerals, with their unique colors and properties... A fascinating thing to contemplate.

Author Reply: Yes, the underworld (both marine and land) is wonderful.
Thank you for reading and reviewing! :)

The light illuminated the depths. Life awoke in the darkness. Colourless became vivid.

What a lovely idea! I enjoyed this very much. :)
