I like your treatment of Haldir. Very Authentic. Flawed characters are so much more interesting than perfect ones. I think this is a difficult challenge and I did not expect an answer. I enjoyed yours!
Author's Response: I am glad you approve. I was unsure of the way you wanted the challenge to go...
You bring out the struggle Haldir has with who he used to be and who he is now. It's kind of sad to know he still fears certain things, even with his loving son by his side. Very touching.
Author's Response: thank you :) yes, i made haldir suffer in my fan fic don't i lol...but i guess sometimes as a aprent you will always fear for your child and so much has happened between calavene and he, i am sure he fear what it will be like if mae finds out
I do like Haldir. He always appealed to me more than Legolas - there's just something about him ... So I enjoyed this wee mixture of prose and poetry from his pov. Very touching to see an emotive chink in his armour. Poor elf! Kara's Aunty ;)
Author's Response: In my story the Heart of Stone, there were certain events that caused the chink. So honestly i think if it were to happen in reality to his, the marchwarden and haldir would be two different person trapped in one sexy body :)
