So breathtaking. Your mastery of language leaves the reader with something that is simple and complex and marvelous all at once.
I'm desperately longing for more. -Whisper
Author's Response: Thank you! I am happy to see that people are still following this story - I've had major problems writing it, so it's relieving to know you're enjoying the use of language here! I hope to see you in my later chapters! ;)
My goodness, these last two chapters are so marvelous. Glorfindel's sorrow, the reason for his despondancy was made so clear. Do not doubt your way with english, for you are a master of painting with words those emotions that have no explanation! How you do it, I have no idea, but I envy you your gift. Please continue writing! -Whisper

I so very much appreciate this, Lisse.
When I first began posting a year ago, I remember going weeks without a single review. And when at last I would receive one, I would be so utterly ecstatic. Like, jumping up and down, singing to myself, blushing ecstatic.
I've mellowed a bit since then, but a comment (especially the constructive ones that really make you think hard about your writing. In the end, the harsher reviews are the ones that make you stronger...) still manages to speed up my heart a little.
The only way authors can truly grow is to receive honest, meaningful criticism from their readers.
Thank you! -Whisper
Author's Response: Well that is true, but is it not wonderful to get a pat on the back also. You do far more right than wrong. wouldn't it be nice to be told that?
Oh, I absolutely agree that pats on the back are wonderful! I think that what I was attempting to convey was that EVERY positive review means something to the author. If it's just a 'You're great. Keep writing!", that still manages to put a smile on my face every time. I really appreciate those reviews and I would hope that EVERY reader would take the time to do that. But the reviews that I look back on and smile at the most are the ones that are critical of my work in a "Some of this was iffy. You might want to change X, Y, and Z. But keep going anyways!" way, you know?
I hope that that did a better job of expressing my opinion...
Author's Response: you cleared it up nicely
