"By rights we shouldn't even be here, but we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo - the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going, because they were holding on to something."

"What are we holding on to, Sam?"

"That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for."

About friending: Feel free to friend or defriend me without asking permission. Most of my entries are unlocked, but sometimes I use f-locked (and more often filtered) posts, so I friend back everyone. If I don't know you in real life, you'll probably go by default into the friends group that gets occasional extra fandom goodies.

P.S. This is still an active journal, but I primarily only use it for fannish stuff these days friends-lock everything that touches on my personal life. I do have a RL blog in which I talk about everything else; e-mail me and ask nicely if you'd like the link.
