Love the Loreena song you quoted! Her's are often at the heart of my own writing! I guess I should have started here before jumping into Scarred fate ;)
off to read more...
Author's Response: Thank you ;-) She is one of my favorite singers, also. If there were angels, they would sound just like her ... or like Lisa Gerrard ;-) And don't worry, one should get the general story line of Scarred Fate without reading The Bitter Glass, although it probably is a good 'attunement'.
Yay! Things are getting happy again. Hmmm, I may not be the best at predicting things but I'm sensing a future pairing of Glorfindel/Erestor/Elrond. Don't tell me if I'm right. I wanna read it for myself! Great chapter by the way. And I do have a suggestion for the title of this chapter. How about 2 steps forward, 1 step back? The 'two steps forward' would refer to Glorfindel and Elrond furthering their relationship, and the 'one step back' would refer to Erestor falling back into the clutches of the Elven sickness. Tell me if you like it. :) And, also, I'm always happy to review!
Author's Response: I am really glad you liked it as it was my first attempt of writing romance and I was afraid it would come out awkward. The title is really fitting and I like it a lot, it perfectly captures the feeling I wanted to get with this 'prologue', therefore you'll find it already implemented ;-) ... thanks once again!
Erestor is so stubborn! But you can't help but love him for it. :D Or to feel sympathy for him.
Author's Response: ;-) That trait is even going to get worse... and sorry for yesterday, the dice obviously didn't favour you :-) But I am really anxious to get to the second part and it is so nice of you to keep commenting ... so here goes the last chapter!
Awww. Such a sad chapter..it'll get better,though,right?
Author's Response: Grrrrr ... You really give me a bad conscience ;-) ... now I'll have to throw a dice to decide if I give you the next chapter now or tomorrow! Anyway,I know, killing Dírhael so soon was quiete ... insensitive and what I did to Celebrían and Elrond ... But to get Glorfindel and Elrond together one needs to offer an explanation as to why Celebrían is not waiting for her husband to join her in Aman. And I hate it when someone starts to turn a wonderful character of Tolkien's into something despicable and I didn't like the idea of an arranged marriage between the two, so I came up with this version. What do you think of it?
Uh oh. I smell trouble. Poor Elrond and Celebrian. The worst things always seem to happen to the best people. :(
Author's Response: Yeah, I know. Actually after promising you that it would get better I reread the story and ... well it *will* get better, but ... not really until the last chapter I guess. I really feel bad now. Hm, but the sequel is already finished and that has a happy ending! As I mentioned, "The Bitter Glass" was just meant as a prologue and merely meant to explain the situation in which the sequel (I'll probably name it "Scarred Fate") starts. Hope you'll keep reading nonetheless ;-)
I really like this story! It's so sad, but I want to know what happens next! :D
Author's Response: Wow, that was fast ... ;-) Anyway, thank you very much and as I take it that you liked the story and the writing style, I'll upload the next part unchanged right now just for you ... But I'm afraid that it is maybe even more depressing than the first part, but it'll get better, I promise.
