This has to go on my favorites, I do believe. I've been convinced of the incestuous passions within the House of Finwë for so long, that I can't believe I've never found any-one else who's written it. It seemed so obvious to me XD.
Author's Response: Oh! thanks for the Favorites add :)) I agree (obviously) with the possibilities of incest in the house of Finwe, at the very least there had to have been some homosexual relationships! There were far too many failed marriages, or no marriages, in that house for something to not be going on :D I feel bad for all those people who refuse the possibility of incestuous relationships, or God forbid homosexual relationships in Tolkien's world, point blank. They have only closed themselves off, and are missing out on some magnificent writing (yours included of course.) They are simply missing the depth, and individuality of a whole world! If one is going to look at Middle Earth as history, or a world in itself, then one can't go around picking out which aspects of human nature one wants in that world! Oh, well, sorry about the little rant :) Thanks again for the review, and add :D Made my day!
Oh. My. I read the pairing, but I still wasn't prepared for the story. It's beautifully, powerfully written. Sensual, bitter, overflowing with angst and disturbing complexities. I loved it and I applaud you for writing it. Thank you for a wonderful read.
Author's Response: Oh, Thank you *blushes* It's defiantly different from my previous writing, but I thoroughly enjoyed writing it, and it thrills me to get reviews like your :D I am humbled, and encouraged to try more!
This is a very interesting view on the relationship between Feanor and Finwe. It's the first time I stumble over this special pair, but you described it very well. And in this short story glimpses of all the things to come are already visible.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review :D I don't think I'd ever seen this pairing before writing this either, which surprised me. Once the idea came it just seemed so natural. It was a true pleasure to write this, and I am happy to hear you enjoyed it!
Incest and the House of Finwë go together like strawberries and champagne to me. This is very good - thought provoking; a confused, beautiful young Fëanor, Finwë's grief, the reason Fëanor hated Indis - well done!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I admit to being a little nervous about this piece, its quite a bit different from my other writing, but I am happy you enjoyed it, and thought it well written. I'd like to write more First Age pieces. The House of Finwë has always fascinated me, and held most of my favorite Tolkien characters, so thanks again for the review :D I'd be lying to say a good comment doesn't go a long way to help booster the courage of a young writer!
