Bio:
I am afraid I am no longer posting anything here since the sellout of the site to a commercail investor without notifying writers.
You can find anything new on www.esteliel or google Faerie lotr fanfic, or the dreadful ffnet- which is worse even than here but it is up front about its commercialism so I feel you know what you are getting when you publish there.

Love LOTR- discovered the Hobbit at seven when my mum read it aloud to us and then found LOTR during my GCSEs... BIG mistake! And since then, I have dreamed and fantasised about it and hten found fanfic! Having lurked for many years, I realised it was getting more difficult to find really good stories and that my favourite writers were all treacherously going off to the appalling Harry Potter (spits curses). A CHILDREN'S book!! Please feel free to flame me for this- I welcome it! So I wrote this.

Oh - this is fabulous. It picks up a very much under appreciated aspect of LOTR; Elfhelm's 'understanding' with Dernhelm. I have just been re-reading that bit myself and wondering about it. Great ot find such a well written one shot.

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?

Crafty Erestor! Good old Rog, because I do not believe him to be so treacherous!

Love that idea that Erestor has been praising her breasts and bum and all the time she has a lover - femlae. Damn good plan all round I htink... but Erestor is doing a great deal for a 'friend' so I htink that Glorfindel is not entirely bereft! When he'dies' it amy be that Erestor discovers some feelings that were unacknolwedged...here's hoping because it would be fireworks!

Erestor is wonderful! I am in love. Sigh. Aranel might even be converted.
And good old Echthelion- wily old fox. Revenge on Salgant is going to be even more intense than he could possilby imagine.

Poor Glorfindel. He really is hopelessly in love and who can blame him. But this is such a good plan as long as Erestor really does not fall in love- but again, fate awaits them and I wonder how long before it catches up.

How sad that Glorfindel cannot even noe acknowledge his little brother. Erestor is right of course. I like the urgency of this- a brief action-packed chapter but intense because of it.

Goodness me. Lucky odl Erestor. He is failr yliberal in his tastes I think and would probably not bat an eyelid if he knew everything- rather think he does.

Love the OCs and the canon characters alike. Erestor is an intersting mix, isn't he and poor GLorfindel- still , he seems ot have got over his unrequited love/lust thing. I like the detaisl adn thinking you put into the daily life of Gondolin... but beneath is the knowledge that soon it is all going to crumble. And Glorfindel's fate is well known of course- intersted to see how to deal with that one. Lovely writing- spare but rich.

You write with simplicity but tell everything. A great gift. Nothing wasted and everything detailed and beautifully done. Just a glance or narrowing of the eye, nothing more, tells everything

I just have to stop briefly and tell you how wonderful this is- how joyful and funny, lovely and I know it's going to be full of tragedy and sorrow too, but at the moment, it is just so exuberant!

Brilliant! I love gimli's voice in this- the humour and the spark between them.

Author's Response: Thanks -- I think the Legolas - Gimli friendship is one of Tolkien's great creations.

breathlessly good. That tension and build up is well crafted and such thoughtful use of imagery and structure.

Author's Response: I'm glad you're enjoying it! Thank you for the detailed review!

Date: 20/08/10 Title: Chapter 5: Irredeemable

I love the complexity of this- interwoven with the losses of Gondolin and the new wars, new enemies- I love that you make it complicated in a way that very few writers think of or acknowledge. This relationship between Erestor and Glorfindel is unpredictable and intriguing, the hurt they cause and the promise of healing is so alive.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you're loving it! This fiction was actually very hard for me to write, as it is so dark and I am dealing with the pains and joys of immortal beings, one of them a resurrected one no less. I hope you continue through the end with enjoyment!

oh no! She mustn't! But she has to! Very poignant and full of gorgeous yearning. She has to get her man in the end.

Great plot- moving quickly and lots of action.

Author's Response: Thanks ziggy. Just read your bio. I never was much into reading as a kid but the one book my mom always suggested I read was the Hobbit. I just read it this summer, (thirty something years later) and thanked her, lol. Now, my daughter and I take turns reading the LotR books. I have to explain some things but she enjoys it. I too read just about every Legolas story out there and then tried my hand at writing my own when I ran out of stuff to read. And of course I enjoy your work very much. Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I really appreciate it. And by the way, call me Moe.
