This is hilarious! I can picture Gwindor and all of the other people that Turin ended up bringing deaths about like Sador giggling as they call him at such a crucial moment with Mandos yelling at them not to make prank calls...
Author's Response: ooh, I like the concept . . .the dead hand on speed dial. I sense a bunny.
Nicely done - you integrated it really well into the seriousness of the tale's atmosphere (you're very good at that)... though I must say I had to read Lira's review before I could figure out quite what it was. I thought it was some sort of mp3 player initially. Anyway, as I said, nicely done.
Author's Response: Well, I guess it could have been an MP3 player. I can just imagine Turin having a cursed iPod.
And I was trying to reach Pizza Hotline... whoops.
Great story! Cool to see one about Turin.
Author's Response: Thanks. Turin just seemed like the right person to have his life messed up by a modern artifact (since he's already destiny's kickball anyway).
This was interesting, i'm gonna take a wild guess and say it was a cell phone. Yes, that would definitely confuse someone from LOTR, especially Turin. Thanx for responding to my challenge, i'd completely forgotten about it actually ^L^ Oh well, myabe i'll have to check them every now and again. Anyway, this was good and i hope someone else has responded to the challenge which i shall check . . . now - Li
Author's Response: Thanks, Lira. People say that cell phones are evil, after all. I figured it would be a good thing to mess up a character's life.
You know, I've been thinking for ages I see no stories about Turin and then this comes. Although I think that tale makes me cry most of all the stories in the Silm I just about fell off my chair. [ I didn't notive the '' entirely silly '' note until after ] I just want to know, who was on the other end? d;-)
Author's Response: Well, this is Turin we're talking about: It was a wrong number. ;)
