Yes, the world felt all clean and fresh today - we had a bit of a storm last night but not as dramatic as I was hoping!

We had two storms, late evening and about 1.15, really energetic, incredible lightning! It’s nice this morning though!

Beautiful weather again today :) although thunderstorms forecast soon - I am waiting up for it, I love a good storm. How is everyone's weekend so far?

Brothers had survived instead, what a fantastic story that would have been!

Many people though didn’t know the Silmarillion and so she became inflated above what she actually was. If only one of her

But all the hype about her when the LOTR films came out- partly the Virgin Mary, partly some White Lady Goddess. It was too much

I will never like her myself; and she hates Tindómion and he could do with less of her in the world, too lol

she is in Ost-in-edhel first with Celebrimbor and then flees with Celebrian to Lorien..

Galadriel is completely under-used by Tolkien. Look atWHO she is and what she is- I can't help feeling she is a flawed heroine- loads of great fics. There's one I'mtrying to remember..wher

Narya
Ahh I see! I shall take a look, thanks for the rec :-)

couple of fics with Galadriel as the protaganist. She just has this way of making Galadriel that much more interesting and personable.
04/07/18 12:11 pm [Delete] [Edit]

Gabriel
She does have some wonderful Gil galad/Elwing fics. Gil galad's another of my absolute favorites. I devour Gil galad fics like they're going out of fashion. Why I asked was because she has a c

Narya
Yes, I've read a couple of hers. There's a lovely one with Elwing and Gil-galad at Yule that I love.

Gabriel
Have you ever read any Keiliss fics, Narya?
04/07/18 11:30 am [Delete] [Edit]

Narya
I find Galadriel intriguing...somewhere in a notebook I have scraps of a Galadriel/Melian fic, which I must go back to at some point.

I'lll just have to see what feels right when I get there...things always evolve as I write anyway!

However, I woulddn’t worry about people liking the Elves there or not, Narya; it’s your story!
04/07/18 11:02 am [Delete] [Edit]

Spiced Wine
Also, I have no liking for Galadriel, ranging from meh to eye-roll. The only reason she survived and her wonderful brothers and cousins didn’t was that she did not fight in any of the great battles

I loathed Haldir; put me off the Lothlórien Elves, although of all places in Middle-earth I liked it least in the book

There were loads of them; they can't all have died!?
04/07/18 10:39 am [Delete] [Edit]

Narya
Lol, yes, they do a bit of a vanishing act, don't they!? Maybe this is an AU by itself - what if the Elves actually turned up and then were important later!?
04/07/18 10:37 am [Delete] [Edit]

ziggy
Love this conversation- I agree! Elves?Elves? Well hell! Sure missed them! And Haldir who? Didn't he die in slo-mo? And never a word afterwards. And yet Legs is all magic and stuff at Pelennor!!
04/07/18 09:56 am [Delete] [Edit]

Gabriel
And yet it was the Elves that gave them the edge over the Uruks. It's a little sad.

No one even says as much as “shame about all those elves, then.”
04/07/18 02:36 am [Delete] [Edit]

Gabriel
Oh my gosh! You too Cheekybeak? I thought it a bit strange that great Elven warriors didn't seem to survive the battle. And yet a few farmers did! What's with that? :/
04/07/18 02:23 am [Delete] [Edit]

cheekybeak
And Legolas seems to suffer amnesia about the fact they were ever there! Their destruction doesn’t bother him one bit :-) “Elves? There were elves here? Surely you just mean me?”

Now you see us.......now you don’t!

I have so many questions about that elven army! What happened to them? Did they ALL die?? Random farmhand humans survived but all the elves die? Or did they slink away into the night?!
