Amid the Powers and Chances of the World

Ch. 48: Beneath the Sky Shall Be Our Bed

Whee! I was reading the previous chapter, then was catching up on the comments & threads when I realized you were probably in process of updating again! So refreshed the "Overview" screen, and there it was!  Yay, you finally got them together, totally believably, too.

Really like the hint of osanwe-kenta (sorry, character map's broke, no dots over the e).  Also, Rowanna is part Numenorean, no?, so she may have a little drip of Elvish blood, too.  For whatever that's worth...

Although you could legitimately end here, am anxious to continue with you in whatever you send our way.  Great job!

Yay, you finally got them together

[Breathes huge sigh of relief] You're not the only one cheering, believe me! The pair of them have been driving me nuts... Very glad to hear it was believable - I'd hate to let my faithful readers down at this late stage!

The bond isn't really intended to be as specific as telepathy - JRRT seems to reserve that for the most powerful among the High Elves, at least in LoTR; it's more harking back to what Legolas speculated about in the chapter where they first kissed; that because for mortals the fea and hroa are so inseparable (at least in this world), it's physical closeness that really cements the emotional bond between him and R. I wouldn't say they can read each other's thoughts: but emotions, yes...

Just one, short, epilogue chapter to go. OMG. I can't quite get my head round that.

Finally all of the angst is resolved and R&L are together again.  Finally they have the maturity to talk together instead of turning away in imagined anger.  And they are able to listen, and to agree that being together - no matter the titles awarded - mattered more than anything else to them.  This is what they had been thinking about for the past year.  They each had run through hundreds of possible conversations and confrontrations in their minds. 

Yet, when they finally are together and able to talk again, they don't find themselves as tongue-tied as I would have thought they would be.  It is almost as if they fall into the same comfort levels they had before the night of the Wedding.  I have to agree with other commentors - it's a little too easy.  I wanted nothing more than having the two of them join and be a couple, but it was too easy. 

However, I am anxiously awaiting your last chapter.  I will be sorry to say farewell to the tale of L & R.  It's been a delightful journey.

Lovely. And I am scared to read the last chapter because I want to keep this piece of happiness, but I think I know how it will end....
