Reviews For Flawless

I read this because it appeared in the random story box, and loved it!

Glorfindel's contemplation of his various homes was superb, as well as his thoughts about mortals and immortals theories of surviving in the world. I liked how you used Elrond's mortal part as a source of wisdom:

"It had been Elrond who, perhaps having a better viewpoint than full-blooded Elves, had pointed out how immortals curiously tried to preserve that which they were meant to watch progress. Gil-galad, the epitome of animation itself, had agreed."

Granted, Men view the world differently than Elves, but for a half-elf to use that to their advantage was smart of you!

"Lying flat against his horse’s back and watching the rain fall towards his face, Glorfindel could hear the king’s words even now: We move, or we stagnate. Stand still in time and it will erode you, like a rock in a river – or swim with the current and see what it passes, and you shall arrive at the sea shaped by the experience."

Also, your description of the Tumladen valley as Glorfindel described it to the children was breath-taking. I am not good at describing people, places, things...and so am in awe when I read others who can.

Goodness, I'm so sorry, I must have missed the alert for this review! I wrote this story a long time ago now, so it's lovely to see that it's still being enjoyed. Thank you for letting me know :)

Oh, I love this, beautifully written these two, and you captured the atmosphere and their relationship perfectly. I do like Glorfindel/Gil-galad as a pairing!

Author's Response:

Thank you :-) These two seem to do atmospheric very well - especially Glorfindel because he's quite a contemplative soul. I've got a soft spot for the pairing so really glad you enjoyed it.

A lovely snippet. I especially enjoyed those lush sililies, and that very insightful comment... To preserve what must progress.

Great writing!

Author's Response:

Thank you :) Really glad you enjoyed it - a lot of what I write ends up quite angsty, so it's nice to make a short, happy snippet from time to time!
