Summary: This isn't my finest moment. I wanted to look at Glorfindel from a different angle. He isn't as flawed as I would like, so I explored his personality. But how corrupt can you really make Glorfindel if based on the book?

It is my belief one such as him would possibly feel burdened by all the responsibility assigned to him after his glorious battle. I do not think elves are beyond hero worship. Anyway, enjoy if you can.

Sort of like our weather now!I enjoyed this story, as I do all of your work. This is going to be a boring day of meetings and classes, but you've given me something interesting to think about
from time to time!

Author's Response: Thanks, Lisse. It's nice to get a review during this boring weather, especially for a story that's been locked up in the Minas Tirith archives for so long. Please let me know if you'd like me to Email you the actual recipe. Thanks again for your time and interest.

Summary: It is set in Valinor before the strife of the Noldor. It follows the story of Tyelkormo and Telperien as they fall in love and seek to be wed.

You would have many more reviews praising your talent, but readers are awestruck. Spiced wine has said all there is to say. You're amazing!

Author's Response: You are very kind to say so. :) I'm not great at taking a compliment. And thank you again for taking the time to read and review. It means so much to me.

I very much enjoyed this story too! I'll be reading more of your work! Thank you for sharing your gift.

Author's Response: I'm a sucker for reviews on this one. It was the most fun to write – Dwarves pulling one over on my favorite Elf and all. Thanks so much for reading! :)

Summary: Maedhros is my favorite character. *sighs* I love him, so I wrote this little drabble as if I was in his world. I think I was talking to my Maedhros muse when I wrote it. It's not really much of anything, but I thought I would share it anyway.

I call Maedhros by his mother-name Maitimo, just in case it confuses someone.

A beautiful expression of unrequited love. We all know that feeling. What a lovely, romantic, poet you are. I hope you find your real life Russandol.

Author's Response: Thank you again for reading and taking the time to reply! I never take it for granted and I am very humbled by your remark. I have found my Russandol. Every night I am greeted by his romantic snoring ;) Hugs!

Summary: This is an unusual tale about the Feantur, a powerful sword forged to combat a plague on man. It is imbued with the power of the gods, and the one who wields it is tasked with destroying the strongest of the dead.

Set in Medieval England, a humble monk must help the newly chosen wielder of the Feantur through the trials and tribulations ahead. They are aided by the seven sons of Feanor, who have been freed from Mandos and are seeking their redemption.

This story can stand on its own without need of having read the Silmarillion, though it would be beneficial.

If I believed in reincarnation I would say you where a writer who once lived in such a time and place, you write so authentically. As always you draw me into the world you create and I don't want to leave it. You make every seen come alive so vividly and give the reader effortless understanding of your characters mind, emotion, and circumstance right from the start.
There is so much more to say about the beautifully crafted stories you produce, but all I can do is the written equivalent of stammer in amazement. Every Tolkien fan that enters this site owes themselves the treat of reading your work. We are privileged to have you write for us.

Author's Response: *Blushes* I don't know what to say, except thank you for your kindness. This story, in particular has always felt mediocre at best and weird. LoL! I feel so very honored that you like it and completely humbled by your review. Thank you again. *Hugs you*

I love the themes your exploring in this chapter (7). We all risk the death of a part of ourselves often and in many ways. Nobility takes the risk.

You've expressed these deep themes so eloquently, as usual, and provoked me to think about uncomfortable realities.

Only one with your gift could make reading about death, shall I say pleasurable?

Can't wait to read the next chapters and the end!

It seems wine is a common means of dealing with Celegorm's inpatients

I've read all of your work several times. The awe I felt after reading your work the first time has not diminished. Today I finished chapter 9 of Feantur. Nothing I can think of can adequately describe my admiration. Your writing is indeed glorious. How gifted you are Los Gloriol!

Summary: This is a poem that I wrote to get some grief out of my system after a very long hard school year.

Very well done. There's more going on here than might be evident on the surface. We're all part of that hard fought battle, are we not?

Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, we all fight the monsters in our own way. I looked at your profile, I hope you don't mind, and I would highly recommend you try reading the Dresden Files. It's a series of books about a modern day wizard who lives in Chicago. It's become my latest addiction reading.

A very wise person once told me that love is never a straight forward emotion, it is always mingled with something else, usually hate or sorrow.

Reading and enjoying your verses.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. This one was really a joy to write. It's one of my favorites.
