:D What a delightful story! Elrond's reactions were absolutely perfect, and I love how Erestor went about drawing his own conclusions as logically and diplomatically as possible. Not to mention the memory of attempting to burp in appreciation while drinking with Dwarves. heehee. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Your review is like an unexpected Christmas present. :-) Trying to figure out how a person raised according to the norms of 'The Laws and Customs of the Eldar' would view - and react to - 'normal' human behaviour was quite challenging, but also great fun. It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed what I came up with!
Great story! I especially liked Erestor's good bye - that he dared to blow Gwirith a kiss. And Elrond's reaction was just hilarious!
Author's Response: Thank you, Tinara - I'm really glad you enjoyed the story. :-)
Very well written. I could almost see Erestor blushing.
Author's Response: Thank you! This is my first story posted here, and only my third published (total), so it's wonderful to receive positive reviews. Erestor certainly felt most awkward - somehow his studies failed to prepare him for the Gwiriths of the world.
This was an abseloutely delightful story! It was beatifully written and I think you really managed to capture Erestor and his interaction with Gwirith quite well. An excellent read! :)
Author's Response: Thank you for your kind words, Anwyn! I'm glad you enjoyed the story, and 'beautifully written' was an especially nice compliment to give an ESL-writer. :-) Originally, it was intended to stay very light-hearted, but Gwirith brought out new sides of Erestor, which added some nuances to the story. Good to hear you appreciated them, too.
I will say it again, this is a DELIGHTFUL TALE! One of the best with Erestor in it that I've ever read. Marvelous work, Lissa! This shall definitely go to my favorites and be rec'd at L&S. Please feel free to post it there too! *hugs*
Author's Response: Thank you, NiRi - it's so kind of you. :-) And thank you for all your support and encouragement while I was working my way through this story. *hugs*
