It would be strange watching any adaption for me, so used to fanfic, lol. I would be keep thinking of the pairings I read and scratching me head :D

I'd really love to see Celebrimbor and Annatar in the Second Age...and maybe Gil-Galad too...although it would be weird seeing him without his Istelion! ;-)

Not the Silmarillion, that would be a separate agreement if it happened at all, but the Appendices are open it seems

I'm always baffled by what is and isn't on the table, rights-wise, but if Christopher T has resigned, does that mean we could get an adaptation of the Silm (or parts of it)?

Article on The One Ring.net - Christopher Tolkien has resigned as director of the Tolkien Estate. This could change 'everything' to quote.

Royd Tolkien just confirmed it on his twitter account. No details other than that.

I should think they'll have actors falling over themselves for this. If it's done well the fandom will go boom!

I found the link. It all seems very vague atm. I look forward to hearing more once they've got news on story, etc.

Wonderful story Winterwitch. Loved the meeting between Gildor and Thranduil and the development of their friendship that you have portrayed here. The description of war and battle is very realistic without being overly gory. Your writing got me involved with Gildor trying to reach his friend in battle and being constantly turned away by battling orcs. I almost cried when I read the part about Gildor carefully kissing the healing burns of Thranduil - accepting the scarring and damage with love and affection. This was good and I hope to see you write more of these stories.

Author's Response:

Thank you for reading, and for your kind review! *beams* I'm happy to see those things important to me worked for you as well. I'm also glad the battle scene worked; I felt totally out of my depth there.

I enjoyed that, Winterwitch. It is the first story I have read about Thranduil's scarring in the film.

Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing! :o) (It also blows my mind how fast you were - I didn't manage more than two stories from the exchange yet since yesterday morning, and they have less word count combined... *faints*)

That scene with Thranduil intrigued me extremely in the film, mainly because I asked myself what this was supposed to be, as it made no sense him still having an injury of this "newness" for lack of a better worth, even if it had happened sometime in the third age. And  even if he had - that "disguising" thing didn't make any sense as well. So I decided it must be a memory he either shows to the movie watcher or just for himself. A plotbunny resulted, inspired by this scene but otherwise rooted in book canon, and it happened to fit perfectly to the request of my recipient.

There is a bunch of fic or art out there related to the scars and/or the blind eye and even more, which I found when I searched for the disguising question, but mostly movie canon and often also drawing in non-Tolkien lore, likge generic fantasy magic in elves explainting that film scene. I rather wanted to try a more canon-based version.
