This is such a unique way to start a story. You have given us much of the sister's history in this way without having to actually visit the events. I cannot wait to hear from Amorith herself. I like her strength. I have always had a thing for a feminine warrior. I am ready to know more about her. I'm enjoying how you are slowly unfolding this story. Keep it up.
Author's Response: Thank you L8bleumr for your thoughts and kind words. I wanted to take a different approach and highlight the ancient magic and crafting abilities of the Noldor in a distinct manner, but not outrageously so either. I'm glad you found Forfirith's history told in an appropritate manner. The next chapters are mostly regarding Amorith, with a few diversions. Don't we all romanticize the idea of a feminine warrior? ;) Anyway, I am revising the next chapter and hope to have it posted soon.
Don't worry about reviews. They will come. Sometimes it takes a while, especially with a new story. I think you are off to a good start. I can tell this is just the build up or intro to the real tale. I must admit, I am a sucker for a story with Thranduil and was excited to see him mentioned in the summary. I am curious to see where this leads to. On with the show.
Author's Response: Thank you for your thoughts. It has been about five years since I have written any fanfic, and this story has been in my head all these years, nagging me to be finished. I really am in love with the story, so here I am, back at it! Although I have chapters 1-26 already typed (and on the website where this story is already posted, I think up to chapter 21 is present), I am revieweing each chapter as new ideas came to me. I am trying not to let my disappointment over lack of reviews get to me. So yes, as you said, on with the show!
