Most of my teachers were lovely - there were just a couple that were not nice.

I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now.

I was a very quiet student, easily cowed and very much a loner, nevertheless I was a good student, but he was not a nice teacher :(

Spiced, what a horrible experience about that teacher! That would drive anybody off the subject, I'd imagine.

Spiced- how horrible! My friends made fun of my poor attn to detail so Chem and I did not get along either. But no! Can find no handy calculators online. Oh well!

Love these little glimpses of Elrond.



Author's Response:

Thanks! I really need to get this series moving, though; can't belive I'm only at nr. 16 by now. ;)

These are great- a really insightful series, glimpses into Elrond's life and thinking- a bit like a stream of consciousness when you're just sitting and letting thoughts run after each other- just what i need for some inspiration! I like the focus on the building of Imladris and hten others threading through and flashing back to his time with Maedhros and Maglor - and his being oddly comforted. I liek that you don't over explain but the drabbles are exactly as they should be- a masterclass in drabble writing!



Author's Response:

Oh, wow, thank you so much! *blushes* *beams* What a lovely review to get, this totally made my day - no, my week! ;o) I'm so pleased you found some inspiration in my drabbles, and that they work for you.  I usually tend to over-explain, so if I manage to convey what I want to say in a drabble with only a few words, I'm very happy.

Great work, you have really managed to create a full story few very few sentences of text, i loved the last Chapter in special (love cat's)

Author's Response:

Thank you! Telling a full story in each drabble or small drabble group is, to me, the main challenge about this text form.

This is a really good image- and warming in htis grotty winter rain!



Author's Response:

Thanks!



Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: November 12, 2014 7:11 · For: Delicious

I like htis domestic elrond, but still with resonance of his rather grand heritage.



Author's Response:

Thank you. I'm glad this worked; it fascinates me to bring the different sides of his character together.

He felt like stone, frozen from within.

 

Perfect image. Paralysis too.



Author's Response:

Thank you!



Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: November 12, 2014 7:09 · For: Sunrise

This is a little jewel - of course in mountains, you dont get sunrise in the same way as you would in Lorien- and what a lovely gesture. Delicately written.



Author's Response:

Thank you! I have experienced the same once in the Alps, and it left quite an impression.



Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: November 12, 2014 7:08 · For: First Growth

I like htis rather nostalgic view from Elrond, and his sort of half regret.



Author's Response:

Thank you!

Masterful! He walks in a summer garden, remembering his bond mate, now gone, and wishes for winter. An awesome and artistic writing of grief.

Author's Response:

Thank you for your kind words!

I love drabbles and short stories. This is so complete. It captures Elrond's feelings about his home so concisely.

Author's Response:

Thank you! I'm happy it works for you.

Short but beautiful. You capture an emotion in just a few lines, really nice!

Author's Response:

Thank you! This is my first foray into writing Tolkien fanfic, and I'm using drabbles to get the bearings, so to say.
