OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
illeryn asked: Question is: Was 'The Last Log of the Foam-flyer' ever completed? Or is it just that I don't know where to look?
Hi, illeryn! Glad you found us. No, "Last Log" is not completed. It's lurking on my computer, because it's really not a multi-chapter long fic, it's a middling long stand-alone fic and it just wouldn't be suited to being published as a WIP. It's currently at 10,000 words and I suspect it will finish out at 20-30,000. Sort of a novella. But I have enough of it that I went ahead and put it in the timeline because I will finish it one day. (Glares at muse.)
And to reopen the 'Who will Heth nest with' debate *mischevious grin* - a while back someone commented about Faramir's vision in front of Heth in CMC, and how they extrapolated who Heth will nest with from that. I always interpreted it as a reference back to Luthien and Beren - the birds as a reference to their shape-changing adventures and unique experience of Death. I thought Faramir just had another of those historical flashbacks, like Numernor's wave - but now thinking back I can see it might be an indication of the future instead. Is there any authorly confirmation of whether the vision is of the future or the past?
No, it's not historical at all. Definitely a future vision.
