The Book of Blessedtales is a hobbit text collecting various stories, songs and tales about the Blessedvales. Contrary to belief by the Big Folk, the Blessedvales are not halfling deities, rather personages accorded great loric status by their deeds. While copies of the Book are not particularly common, many a gaffer can recite the whole collection from one end to the other without more than a pause for tea and a pipe, and such tellings are not uncommon in the winter months.

Will that do Art?

Beyond the horizon where the earth and the heavens meet
lies a certain point where they are not joined together and where, by stooping,
one might pass under the roof of the heavens.

Now, first of all you must excuse this small act of thread necromancy/hijacking, but I absolutely had to tell you how much I enjoyed this little tale, Valan! You've captured the tone of voice perfectly (I can just imagine the old hobbit storyteller with a crowd of eager listeners gathered around him...) and managed to create such a timeless story, using familiar elements to create something that still feels unique. You may say this was a rare piece of inspiration, but I'm hoping you might be struck by the muse again in the not-too distant future ;)

Also, it's really great to see a hobbit story-book in the library, especially one relating to the various hobbit-beliefs that got discussed a while back. Do you know, one of my plans on my return was to see if we couldn't get a book of hobbit stories put together- it's almost like you read my mind :D I wonder if we couldn't fit the ever-wonderful seth's Sconder story into the book, as she mentions he appears in more than one tale, so perhaps he could be some kind of greedy variation on the main hobbit trickster Mian, of course. (with seth's approval, naturally rolleyes ) I've had a half-finished story sitting around for a while, about a hobbit named Dimadale who gets the better of dragon, so again might he be a more homely variation on Mian? If not, is there the possibility we could create a book of lesser hobbit tales to house them?

EDIT:And approximately half a second after I hit post I realised that all the above really should have probably gone in the main Mian thread, or a new thread altogether. Sorry bout that, I got somewhat carried away buck

Oh, and here, have some aura for your trouble.

*bumbles off in search of the main Mian thread*

The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.
-William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
