This made me cry. Not out of sorrow but because Ulmo's act was one of absolute and perfect mercy. The grief that would have encompassed SAm had he reached Tol Erresea to find Frodo had already passed on would have injured his fea so badly that it might never really heal.

If you haven't entered this in the MEFAs for this year it ought to be!

I've re-read this several times and thought about the premise. I think it's more cruel of Ulmo to deprive Sam of his free will and make that decision for him. Sam is quite the stout-hearted fellow, as we know. And, after all, he might have wanted to see Tol Eressea before moving on to the next destination. Also, the implication that he drowned also conjures up images of fright and terror. Interesting premise... food for thought.

It's lovely to think that the Ring-bearers would be treated with such tenderness and compassion.

I really, really love this spin--both on fanon itself and on the essay--(you've outlined a possibility that I at least had never thought of, and I already have two options--one that existed before the essay and one that sprung up afterwards in a commentfest).

This has just enough of the disturbing quality to it (what happened? If the ship sank, did any elves go down with it? Were Sam's last thoughts ones of despair or did he actually go down in his sleep?) to make Ulmo actually feel like a Vala and one that is perilous at that--despite the greater good and the comfort that we know was behind his intentions. And all in a hundred words! Well done!

"even as spring creeps into the dreariness of aged winter"

That was a lovely expression!

So many of his birthdays marked years ending in frustration... but yes, he would look forward in hope! Perfect.

Such a long, lonely journey. You bring us his heart and thoughts very beautifully.

Wonderful! Perfect for our incipient King's birthday! And soon enough things will be working far faster!

Again, a wonderful drabble, and so delightful to see Bilbo involved! Next Yule on Tol Eressea--with Frodo!
