A lovely series of pictures.  Especially the first one.  Who are the models for the girls?  I recognized Sarah-Michelle Gellar, but couldn't place the others.  I recognize the tiny dancing figure; used it myself in a few artworks.;)  You've got me curious to read the story now.  Very nice work!



Author's Response:

"The others" is actually "the other", that is, just one. She is Buffy's sister Dawn, played by Michelle Trachtenberg. And there is a reason why they are on the pictures! :)

The tiny dancing creature is, in fact, my own work. The model was Luthien from one of Ted Nasmith's paintings; then I used the outline and made it glow, so that it seemed she's made of fire, too. I searched for some already made fire-figures, but couldn't find them, or at least, I couldn't find what I wanted. So I made one in the end.

Thanks so much for your review, I am glad you like the pictures. :)

*applauds* Yay!  Wonderful, Dreamflower!  This was a fun story and I'm glad I had the privilege of illustrating it! 

Of the kids I think I liked Elemir best:D  And I like how the villains got their comeuppance!  A peacock?  I'd have turned him into a chicken;)



Author's Response:

Thank YOU!  I think that your lovely illustrations really helped to inspire me-- especially for the later parts of the story!

Elemir turned into quite a young hero! I really wanted him to be worthy as a son to Faramir and Eowyn!

Well, a peacock just was what I saw as I imagined the scene; he seemed a very vain sort of person.  I would love to have give Jadis some sort of comeuppance as well, but of course, she has a future role to play in Narnian canon, so I couldn't really punish her.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the story!

Author's Response:

They do think that we should be so pleased at such gifts, don't they?  My Lydia appears to be convinced she herself must bring about the extinction of the race of mountain voles all single-cattedly.  And the last "gift" my late Bookie brought me was a young garter snake, who at least this time hadn't been decapitated before she let him go in the kitchen and he took refuge in a box.  I don't know which of us was more startled when I found him, the snake or me!
