Gwann nan iHûl – Revisited by Kaylee Arafinwiel

Rated PG
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

 What if, during the Sixth Age of Arda, the Maiar had exposure to modern Mortal literature? More to the point, what if they had exposure to fanfiction? Vaguely connected to Dreamflower and Pande’s ‘The Prisoner and the Hobbit’ (which can be found here http://storiesofarda.com/chapterlistview.asp?SID=6945 ), too, if only because I’m assuming “D.L. Sauron” isn’t the only Maia gifted with an iPad…

…Yes, I’m an insatiable fan of Fiondil’s and Dreamflower’s, so I stretched the theme a little to include me too. Oops? *rueful grin* The original "Gwann nan iHûl", by Fiondil, can be found here - http://storiesofarda.com/chapterview.asp?sid=5793&cid=24476
