Hehehe! It’s good to see that Mel hasn’t completely lost his naughty streak. He wouldn’t be Mel without it. Personally I think Glorfindel should have stayed multi coloured. His enemies in battle would have laughed so much they’d have been completely unable to fight.
Mmmm....fully grown Legolas is gorgeous:)
Yay! The end to a brilliant day for Mel. It's brilliant to see Mel and Ereolas working together so well, and how Ereolas seems to have become the older brother now. He is if you count both lives, of course. I seem to remember that Ereolas was tasked with caring for Mel's Fea in Mandos, but I don't know if either of them remember that at this stage.
Author's Response: It made a change to write a happy diversion for them :) Thank you for your lovely, thoughtful comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :)
What a lovely chapter- and so peaceful and non-violent for a change!!! Love the end with a kindMel looking after everyone:)
Author's Response: It was about time there was a peaceful chapter. I think I prefer kind Mel to any other sort he could be lol Thank you for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :D
Manwe might be all-knowing and all-powerful, but he's also a complete twonk. Thank goodness Nienna showed some sense. Of course it's more important for Mel to be with loving parents at such a young age.
Author's Response: Thank you - I agree entirely :) Although, Mel as a Sauron in waiting would have been quite interesting! Thank you for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :D
Lol! I don’t know how you come up with those titles. Pure genius!
Author's Response: I was looking at them and wondered that myself too lol Thank you for your comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :)
Hehehe! I loved Legolas’s reaction to the kitty ears kite.
Author's Response: More or less total denial lol Thank you for your comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :)
Some great moments in this. I hink my favourite is
Who could be more special than me?” Everyone looked at Mel in surprise. Sensing this, Mel defended himself. “Ada Erestor said that I was the most special elfling in Middle-earth.”
“Was he drunk?” Legolas asked acidly, as Elrond and Erestor tittered.
Author's Response: Knowing Mel he will never have any idea what Erestor really meant lol Thank you for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :)
I was so happyto see three chapters this afternoon- settled don for silliness and delight with a double dose of Cadbury Twirls- what more coudl I ask for? Deliciously daft
Author's Response: Thanks Ziggy, I am really pleased you are enjoying the stroies :)
Poor Mel! He doesn't desrve that...oh wait- yes he does!
LOvely and soppy.
Author's Response: Yes, he deserves it lol Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
I giggled all the way through this but my favourite bits are:
The next morning, I got up early and woke Ereolas up by opening the bedroom door to go to the toilet, I did not mean to. Ada Erestor was already in there and took ages, so I was jumping up and down hoping that I did not wee on the floor.
“You might not want to go in there for a while.” Ada smirked and walked back to his bedroom.
Hahahaha- nearly wet myself laughing!
I put my little black, Erestor style robe on, brushed my hair as best I could, and then put my pink and silver ‘Hello Vampire’ socks on
JUst kills me!
I wish Ada would not bore me with philosophy!
Author's Response: I am glad Mel made you laugh so much - he certainly brings a smile to my face! Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
I just love this so much - he is really cheeky- squeezing out a big fat tear which Erestor (my hero-parents!) ignores. This just lights up my day!
Author's Response: I wonder when Mel is going to realise that the tears just dont work anymore lol Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
“You know the sword on the statue of Thranduil that Elrond refused to make safe?” I nodded. “Well I chopped the end of the sword off and told Elrond to stick it up his arse.”
Yay! Go Legolas! Personally I think Elrond deserved that, after his behaviour towards Erestor.
Gorgeous moment when Erestor gave Legolas the ring :)
Author's Response: Legolas is so young at the moment, but he is doing all the right things to become a force to be reckoned with :) Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
“I have been stitched many times. That's what happens when you are a big tough warrior.” Hm, Little Warriors had just lost its appeal. I thought I might become a scribe instead.
That made me laugh so much! I also had a smirk when Mel insisted he and Glorfindel wouldn't cuddle in bed much.
Author's Response: Mel is one of life's innocents, isn't he? lol Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
I managed to squeeze a big fat tear out of my left eye, which was not hard as I felt really miserable anyway.
Hehehe! Ah, yes, Mel knows all about manipulation. But so does Erestor. Mel's never going to get away with anything with Erestor as his father :)
Author's Response: I wonder why Mel bothers trying to manipulate Erestor lol Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
I love his mix of maturity and precociousness and absolute childishness- great. Now- where's the next three chapters please?
Author's Response: Next three chapters coming soon :):):) Glad you are still enjoying the story. Thank you for your lovely comments :)
LOve the 'Littel Warriors' -like scouts or cubs!
Author's Response: I based it on that - the thought amused me too much not to write it. I am pleased you are enjoying the story - thank you for your lovely comment :)
A wonderful chapter! I giggled all the way through because of Ereolas and his brilliant narcissistic and oblivious nature s SOOOOOOOOO funny!
Author's Response: Ereolas is all about himself - just like any baby really, but he should know better having once been an adult :) I am pleased you are enjoying the story - thank you for your lovely comment!
Oh, I do love Mel, but he was such a brat in this chapter. Poor thing, he had such a struggle working out why everyone was being mean to him! I'm glad he got there in the end and his Ada Erestor was there for him.
Author's Response: We rely on Mel being a brat, don't we? He is much more fun that way lol I am pleased you are enjoying the story - thank you for your lovely comment :)
Hurrah! It seems Ereolas was too tired to make good his threat!
I'm shocked at Elrond, though. He should know better than to flirt with Erestor now he's bound. He's right about one thing, though - Erestor needs to tell Legolas about their past before Legolas hears it from gossip.
Author's Response: Naughty Elrond eh? lol I wonder if Erestor writes more.... I am pleased you are enjoying the story. Thank you for reading and commenting :)
My dear husband sighed. “Don’t be too long, meleth. We can spend the rest of the afternoon together.” He kissed my cheek. Immediately after, Ereolas announced that he was going to stay awake until the evening.
Hahaha! I bet he does, too, the little sod. I bet Legolas and Erestor have a calandar, counting down the days to when Ereolas comes of age and both their sons have married and left home :D
I liked the bit about Erestor being glad Legolas is gaining confidence. I'm glad he wants an equal relationship. I keep forgetting how young Legolas is in this story.
Author's Response: Yes lol Ereolas was always uncomfortable about his parents showing any sort of overt affection :) I forget how young Legolas is as well - it's always a surprise for me. Thank you for your lovely comments. I am pleased you are enjoying the story. :) :) :)
No wonder Annare was too afraid to talk. What a little shit Bainon is, to threaten the elves who brought him up. I expect it will be a relief to Annare and his wife/sister to send Bainon off to Haldir's school.
Author's Response: Bainon is a nasty piece of work, but now they are rid of him. Who will Mel call one-inch now lol Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
Poor Annare- I feel really sorry for him even though many elves would have paid a lot of money to have the treatment he had at erestor's hands. I hope they can solve the problem of horrid little Bainon!
Author's Response: I wouldn't like the treatment Annare received - still, he could have come clean at the start and saved himself a lot of nother lol Or maybe he wanted Eresotr's attentions all thetime lol Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
Oh come on, Annare!! This was actually quite uncomfortable to read and there must be something really really bad that he won't say. Also I can't remember what Bainon did that was so bad so I need to go back and read that again so I can be indignant and cross!
Damn you write hot! Erestor is the coolest.
Author's Response: Annare fears something above all and will go to any lengths to conceal it. Bainon has been a thorn in the side of Mel and Ereolas since they were tiny, but this time he has gone too far. His parents covered for him, so now they are experiencing the wrath of Erestor lol Thank you for your lovely comment! :)
Mel is going to be so disappointed when he finally meets Gandalf!!
Author's Response: He might be disappointed, but he might not ;) Thank you for your lovely comment! :)
He then yelled a load of squawking noises and stopped, as if listening. In the distance, there was a faint screeching. After a while, we saw the wings of a lone eagle.
haha- talking eagles- never felt right in the hobbit!!
