Hi Denise!Oh, hooray! My compliments to the tabloid!
Yes, I understand that dumpster-diving is occasionally lucrative.... This is a wonderful set of drabbles depicting a... legendary relationship. *g* I've never seen Celeborn treated quite like this, but love the results - and the ending.
Thank you! You do know that you inspired this set of drabbles, don't you?
I read your extremely
kind MEFA review on Christmas Eve, which gave me the kernel of an idea.... and I stayed up all night to write the drabbles and post them on Christmas Day. (And I've actually tweaked them several times since.... usually I get that out of my system before I post new material, but this was a very special occasion!)The insults are inspired, and this is quite the lovely image:
Glaring, he sends for his sword and slowly starts to strip.
*Denise fades into dreamland for a while...*
Yes, I was rather fond of that line myself... do you know that I had one extra word available, so added slowly
at the very last minute? I think it added a certain je ne sais quoi
.... and it does explain why Celeborn and Elrohir later were sparring wearing naught but breethclouts and braids, and bearing live steel.... Also loved: The Lady would be angry if I unduly disabled him...
The Lady? You'd better worry about Celeborn's fangurls, Hirvegil.
LOL! I think Hirvegil actually knows that.... he is
the one who told Celeborn that a blunted weapon doesn't suit him (though I swear I didn't plan that! I just let them snark....) Great job, Elena Tiriel, and a sweet Christmas present for us readers!
Thank you so much for the compliment, Denise, and especially for inspiring this chapter!
It was really great fun to write!
