This was perhaps a bit short, but I thought it was interesting and well-written. I loved how you skirted around the fact precise details of Noddy's death, yet at the same time managed to convey the seriousness of the situation through contextual clues. The Tolkien quotes at the end were very helpful in that regard, I think.
Well, in this case, "short" is what I was going for--the fic originally started out about twice the length, contained more background information, and it simply didn't have punch to it. Plus, Zinnia didn't want to give any clues at all; the whole thing was too awful for her.
Glad you liked the quotes at the end.
