Well, I'm not sure I should have done it, but I have, and now I've had a taste of what we're all in for. I have listened to the ROTK soundtrack. It has nearly killed me - I do not exaggerate. I fear this film. And then I did a silly thing - I came upon this fic which I *think* was called 'Footsteps in the Sand' - it was beautiful and gut-wrenchingly sad so I really should not have read it at that moment. And then something strange happened - I tried to find it again so I could include a link to it - and it had gone!! Ok, I know its probably something very practical like being removed for editing, but in my heightened emotional state I began to think I'd dreamt or imagined it - I *think* I know who wrote it but am not certain - I'm just hoping it will reappear so I'll know I haven't completely freaked out!!

I will have to listen to 'Half Fling' again before I dare to go back downstairs.

That sounds spooky, but also beautiful. As if that story was there for you, even though it was sad? I don't know, but I like the idea. :) What was the story about? I hope you'll find it again, so you can give the link, because I'm very curious now.

Well, I wasn't going crazy after all, as confirmed by westmoon the story was there, just for a short time, and it was by the person I was thinking of cleverclogs. I really hope she posts it again. It was a Frodo & Sam story, told from Sam's pov when he's very old - it was about the very thing that breaks our heart in ROTK which is what made it so strange that I should come across it at that moment and for it then to vanish.

You're not crazy. It was cleverclogs and it was beautiful and heartbreaking. However, I see it's down now.

Thank you - its good to know I've not completely gone:) I did think it was a cleverclogs story but couldn't be sure. Very, very sad - I do hope she reposts it.

That does it! Into the West near killed me, and the rest of the soundtrack will finish the job. I plan to avoid it like the plague.

And the 'Case of the Disappearing Fic' sure is strange. If it was cleverclogs, I didn't even get to read it! *mourns*

It really is heartbreaking, especially towards the end.

Yes, as confirmed by westmoon the story was by cleverclogs, as I thought, and has now been taken down. So beautiful, but terribly sad. I do hope we see it again.
