This is terrible sad. Glorfindel is the Elf who lead me to the Elder Days, when I read of him in Lord of the Rings, so he always holds a special place in my heart. And Glorfindel/Legolas is my favorite pairing for those two (Glorfindel/Ecthelion in the First Age and Valian Years of the Trees :) )
Would you ever think of expanding this so that somehow Glorfindel could return? I don't mind Haldir, Esteliel and Kenaz write him wonderfully, but if it were a choice between Glorfindel or Haldir? Glorfindel is far more worthy, he proved that at Christhorn, against the Witch King and n facing off the Nazgul. I am not saying he could not *darken* as he does in Esteliel's series, but I love the Glorfindel/Legolas pairing and this story makes me extremely sad for Glorfindel. I would go and punch the Valar in the face, except I derive satisfaction from vilifying Mandos in my own work, lol, d;-)
Anyhow, well done, I could truly feel Glorfindel's agonies of frustration, hate and love in this piece.
Author's Response: Hi Siān! Thanks for your review! :) I thought about ways I could expand it, but I'm not sure how. I like the story as it is, though it is sad for Glorfindel I agree (but then, he did commit such a horrendous crime, so it evens out in my mind.) I wanted to explore how obsession can destroy someone, even one who is so great in his society. I do have a very short prequel to this series that I haven't posted on this site yet. Other than that, I don't have much plans of taking it anywhere else - sorry! I explore the idea of Glorfindel's descension in another fic, but that one is kind of hard to explain because most of Glorfindel's actions are governed by a demon that has possessed him. Thanks again for the review! :) ~iavalir
