More Dangerous, Less Wise

Ch. 19: Alone in the Wild
Oh my. Oh my my. Goodness. What a chapter, I so like the voice of Aragorn in this, experienced for a mortal man but completely naive next to the understandably suspicious and deeply foolish yet wise Wood Elf. Wonderful conversation about a certain lady-love and all the implications. What a remarkable portrait of Legolas's powerful presence, enhanced, perhaps by fever. Love that Roheryn considers becoming unfaithful, too! And I knew that we wouldn't get out of this whole thing without a trip back to look for poor Rhawion!

What a wondrous AU tale. I particularly like that you choose to tell it through the eyes of a famous Elleth who became someone very different by this shift of fate. I find myself musing on all the impacts of your story, both good and bad... so many come to mind... Very nicely done!

Letter to Fingon

Ch. 1: A letter
One of my favourites now, oshun. Lovely combination of furious anger at his recklessness and delight at the same passion. Love the way he almost falls down the steps and Fingon's last comment!

Ch. 1: My Shining Stars
THis is lovely- I have always thought Elrond would love the sons of Feanor more than his own reckless parents who abandoned him. And he must be lonely. I like the comparison of his parenting with Feanors' methods.

Ch. 1: The Vanishing Point
This is awesome! I love the picture you paint of Boromir moping about because he's sweet on someone who's no longer there -- that fact that she's named Linaewen is a double bonus! Blessings and thanks for your gift.

Ch. 1: Renacimiento
Great humour and poignancy in this. I love the deprecating way Maedhros speaks of himself and Elrond's starry-eyed infatuation, the hair tossing and flirting, but underneath, those lovely references to Fingon, that insisitence Maedhros has on reminding Elrond that he drove their mother to leap off the cliff (well, as you say, she chose to leave her children t save the silmaril) is really the mark of a great piece of writing.

Ch. 1: Nothing To Forgive
I am so happy to read this - a happy ending for Maedhros, complete, whole and forgiven by the one who had most to forgive. As always, beautiful writing.

Himring, glad you enjoyed it:) Fëanor's very much unfamiliar writing territory for me, so I'm happy the ending worked.
