Gorgeous story, Alatariel N.! I think it should be nominated for best Book-Verse / Angst. Actually I did nominate it for best Book-Verse/Angst... :D Good luck!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Author's Response: Thanks for the luck and the nomination, as well, I appreciate it!
I've a confession to make. Gilraen is *not* one of my favourite characters. In fact, with the little I've read about her on Tolkien's books, she seemed a bit distant and cold.
You, however, have just made me like her - a lot. I loved the way you handled her story. There was a Gilraen with real emotions: love for her husband and her son, fear for their safety, courage where it was needed. I couldn't get enough! I thorougly enjoyed reading how things went from her point of view.
Thank you for this gorgeous story! Once again, excellent work! :)
Author's Response: *bows* Thank you, thank you! Yes, I agree with you - J.R.R. Tolkien does make her seem distant, especially with the part where she disagrees with Aragorn's love affairs, etc., etc. Well, I had lots of fun writing this story... I love writing about Aragorn. (Did you know I got the idea to write this story while my mom was talking to me before a piano competition?) Anyway, thank you for the encouraging review!
Wow, you have really put a lot of effort into this! Great job, I love it! You have answered my challenge excellently! Great job, mellon nin!
Author's Response: *Grins* Thank you! This is one of the first stories that I tried with the main character being somebody else who is not involved in the War of the Rings. It was a lot of fun doing your challenge, hope you'll give out more soon!
