> Markus asks, "Why do you think my name would go there very well?"
> It's a paraphrase. The original Tolkien quotation is, "Do not meddle in

> The filker/SCA version is, "Do not meddle in the affairs of bards, for
> they are unsubtle, and your name scans to Greensleeves." (I've seen t-shirts

> As a writer of fanfic, especially such excellent fanfic, Gwynne is all the
