Hi Eryn ! This is a great opening chapter, rushing now to the next one !
Author's Response: Glad you like! Please continue.
Rian is turning out to be a great oc ! looking forward to reading her back story & I loved the interaction with the galadhrim ! Go Haldir !
Author's Response: Glad to hear you like her. I'm working really hard to keep her believable as an Eldar. Hopefully her backstory won't be too "dark" for you. :) Yeah, I think two of a kind tend to butt heads quite often. LOL
Wow ! That was so sad and so beautifully written ! plus I loved the image of Celeborn holding the grieving elfling and I like the way you're portrying young Haldir & his brothers.
Author's Response: I had to give her a backstory that explains why she is the way she is now...confusing, I know...but you'll see. All elves would mourn one of their own dying and to leave behind a child - that makes it that much more painful. I like this Haldir, too. It shows he had to be "in charge" at a young age; which made him into the elf he is today. : )
Brillant ! loved the comparison with the stallion, nice bit of 'elvish' humour !
Author's Response: I couldn't resist that one! : )
Another great chapter, some great lines in this one, had me laughing !
Author's Response: Glad you liked them! It helps to have his two younger brothers to throw into it, too!
Oh I just love all the building tension ! and Uncle Erestor is great ,'planning a kin-slaying' ! teehee !
Author's Response: I like Erestor, too. I had to bring him into this story, his influence helping to mold Rian into the elf she is. He is quite protective of his niece...but does have a lovely wicked streak ; )
Whew ! that was a relief ! Glorfindel deserves a good scolding, but I can't wait to see what other schemes he gets up too. Nice touching moment at the end.
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you like it
Tsk ! tsk! plotting scheming elves, a dripping wet Marchwarden *sigh...slaps self* and an akward 'first date', what more could be asked for ! great chapter !
Author's Response: LOL! Yeah, I had to smack myself back to reality several times! ; )
Ha ! the plotters were out-plotted ! The race was great and I just love Erestor, all 'death-glare & spine chiliing ! teehee ! Looks like the secret is out though.
Author's Response: Erestor is cool, not enough fics with him I think. I like the death glare, too, but you'll see another side of him shortly. : )
