Ooh, that was quite violent, in its implied way. It's a very pragmatic view of the elves, which very few authors seem to manage. Nitpick: your opening line is very confusing. If you're trying to sound formal it isn't working, but equally possibly you missed it when proof reading.
I liked this approach.
Strong stuff! It's a compelling dramatization of the way monarchy politicizes family ties and decisions. I also liked the symbolic connection of her with Osgiliath -- rather darkly ironic.
Author's Response: Thanks, Ria! Glad the dynastic issues worked well for you, and also that the Osgiliath-Sorrian connection played well. Thanks for reading! Dwim
