Unforgettable by Zhie Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 36]
Summary: Tale of Glorfindel & Erestor in Gondolin. A young warrior and an old scholar learn more from one another than they expected to. Timeline: First Age - Gondolin Characters: Glorfindel, Erestor, Ecthelion, King Turgon, Salgant, Duilin, Egalmoth, Rog, Gildor Inglorion, Laiqalasse Thranduilion, and others as needed. Warning: slash, angst, tragedy, sexuality, abuse, smut, discipline, darkness, and general unhappiness - but, there are a few laughs here and there, so it all evens out. Also, this heavily works off of the original characters and history, but some things are bent and twisted, making it AU. Then again, all fanfic is AU, isn't it?

This is such a beautiful chapter, I love the glimpse of Eresse's powers and the fact that he uses them for Glorfindel's benefit.
This is absolutely my all time favourite LOTR fanfic.

Author's Response: ^_^ Thanks! I've enjoyed exploring Erestor/Eresse's abilities. The story that will follow this one goes a bit more into all of that... of course, I need to finish this one first! Which means, I best get back to it...

Thanks for this chapter, it has left me in total confusion about Turgon's intentions and opinions... At one turn he seems openminded in secret and now a complete turn-around. Can't wait what will happen next.

Summary: What if Sleeping Beauty was not a woman? What if they were not a man either, but an elf? Follow Alice in her journey to find out the truth behind the myth and the fairy-tale. Set in modern times. LegolasOC.

This isn't really a review for the chapter, rather for the whole story so far.

A very good story (I just read it through for the first time because I usually don't go for the modern day or Legolas romance stuff), I enjoyed it and I will read the upcoming chapters with delight as well. I'm already guessing about the end too: will Alice grow old and die again or will Legolas' blood be a ticket to eternal life as well as the antidote. I'm sure I will find out when I get to read on.

I really liked the finding out about the myth proved to be a bit tricky (just like myth research and archeology and such tends to be like). But what I didn't like so much was Alice constantly bringing up Logan to Legolas because if she is such an expert myth journalist and clearly realizes that Legolas is ancient, she should at least understand what marriage/relationship customs in historical eras have been. But maybe she's such a firecracker that she doesn't think this when she gets upset with Legolas and the whole dream situation.

Looking very much forward for more, thanks for this excellent piece of writing.

Author's Response: Hello there! Thank you very much for your review, I have read carefully all your comments! I understand your thoughts about Alice bringing up Logan all the time... but as you said at the end, Alice is extremely confused with the dreams and thinks everything is just a figment of her imagination. I think that if such interactions took place in a 'real' situation, she would be more careful and thoughtful of what she said. Moreover, she's not known for keeping her mouth shut when she's upset... :-P But I'm very happy you like the story so far and thank you very much for your constructive criticism!

A very good story, I wonder what troubles they continue to face. I hope Glorfindel and his warriors find them in time before something really bad happens, such as getting sold.

Well written too.

Author's Response: Thank you so much!) I hope I'll be able to update soon too) And it always great to know that someone likes your story)

Great start, can't wait what turns you intend for the plot to take. I like it that Erin cares about trees. I'm not sure if Rumil would think of Orophin as a 'medic' tho. The word seems too modern but it's your choice :) And I guess it's nitpicking to complain about one word =D

Your story is going forward nicely, but I'm sorry to say that the spelling (which mostly is perfectly fine) distracts me at least. If you don't have a beta (= a proof reader) yet and want one, I could volunteer. If you're interested at all, e-mail me to rowenriel@gmail.com and we'll discuss some more.

Whatever you decide about that, keep on writing the story and I'll keep on reading it ;)

At OEAM it says "Every 5000 years..." :P Just kidding, I think 1000 years is better anyway :)

Really nice story, nice twist with letting Erestor feel disappointed for a while before finding out someone had claimed the rights to him even before the race.

Hey, first time to review, but I'm liking the story very very much and anticipating new chapters. I kind of like the dark, tortured Elrohir, maybe because it feels like there's still hope for him. Maybe Legolas will be his salvation somehow. I also like your description of Aragorn's relationship to the Shadow Host. That they're not so simple and easy to control as it might seem.

Just a small, trivial comment about the picture you found inspiring. In my opinion there's no one else in the picture except Legolas. The hand you see behind/above Legolas' neck is a part of the carved headboard of the bed. The headboard would probably look something similar to this if it was all visible:

But the Theban Band picture is nevertheless an inspiration for sure :)

Author's Response: aha! You are so right!! It must be that hand- now THAT gives me some good ideas about Rivendell that had not occurred o tme before... next story though. I have been wanting to write about the Council Of Elrond for ages and I think that is where I go next. Yes- there is always hope, as long as Legolas understands HIS part and how vulnerable Elrohir is... hint hint. I am glad you liked the Shadow Host bit-They sort of wrote themselves actually- you know how it is.
