I appreciate the clever use of repeitition of word and thought in this drabble set, the meter gives it a unique, almost poetic rythym. very nice.

Even thought Tar-Miriel watched the waves too long, I suspect it was satisfying to see her husband's defeat. At least she had that much. I really liked the words about Meneltarma, too. Once they prayed and then they burned. Good stuff.

With these two drabbles I feel the emotion, the plight and the longing. Very difficult to portray in 100 words, but these were wonderfully done!
