A Conspiracy Unmasked Can't Post

RosieLass says "She hates it!"

OK, not really; in fact, not at all. Altaira can't stand up because her knees are shaking and for the first time in memory, she did indeed "SQUEEE!". She says she'll never trust anyone of us again.

She's so afraid she'll drip tears on her Map, but she can't stop looking at it and finding something even more amazing. We haven't gotten much more out of her than "Wow", and "Squee".

She's still collecting her thoughts and will post soon. Right now all she says is she loves TORN and everyone on the message boards. She is really overcome.

We have video of the event will post it when we can.

We've been her for an hour and she hasn't left her map. BG is equally overwhelmed.

Annael adds:
None of the conspirators who are in/came to Colorado for this got much sleep last night! We were all too excited! Entmaiden & I had butterflies driving to Altaira's. Aunt Dora, Uncle Baggins, Rosielass, and May Gamgee parked in front, while we parked around the corner and peeked until we saw everyone had gone in. Then we brought the map to the door and knocked hard on it; Aunt Dora shouted "no thank you! We don't want any visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!" and we yelled "What about very old friends?" Altaira opened the door and stared at us for about five minutes in disbelief. Then we gave her the card we'd gotten, thanking her for all her hard work on the new boards (and BG's). She thought that was the thank-you and was completely unprepared for the map itself. Uncle Baggins recorded her reaction, which I can't do justice to in words, but it was everything one could wish for. We all feel privileged and that to be part of the gift-giving was in itself a gift. None of us have ever been part of such an extraordinary thing before. This was truly a work of love in every way.

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.
`Are these magic cloaks?' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.
`I do not know what you mean by that,' answered the leader of the Elves.
