Hethlin of Anorien

 February, 25 2006

I know CMC's a done deal, but since I intend to give it a thorough editing in the future, I'll include it in this thread, as well as make this a place for any other Heth questions not appropriate for the Silver Swan thread.

Hi Isabeau!

Hope this is the right thread to post this in...

I have been working on a drabble series, "Fell and Fair" (which is turning into a drabble novel LOL!) and got the idea for a drabble (which spawned a second) from your story "Blackbow".

Following is part of the author's notes for that drabble. I do not know when I will be posting it, since the chapter (the Battle of the Field of Celebrant) is just begun, but I wanted you to know how grateful I am for the inspiration... I had despaired of ever being able to begin writing that chapter!

Sometimes a drabble can spontaneously generate from a concept, a phrase, or even a single word. The latter is the case for this one, which I began shortly after reading this passage:

... Mablung removed Faramirs leather jerkin, pulled up his shirt and examined the wound with eyes and hands and nose....

I dont think that hes gut-riven, he declared at last, and Boromir sagged a bit in relief, for such would have been a death sentence....

From Blackbow, by Isabeau of Greenlea

'Gut-riven' struck me as such a starkly evocative word dramatic, descriptive, and, let's face it, gruesome that I was energized to write this drabble. As of September 2008, I have worked on this series for almost 3 years and completed 93 drabbles... but this is the first one about the central organizing event. Thank you, Isabeau, for the unexpected and highly welcome catalyst!
