Hi, Sin! My latest short story and the next one were inspired by this rotten winter weather.

Snow is in tomorrow's forecast here. The storm will last through Wednesday afternoon. About 8" of snow is expected. I planned ahead and did my grocery shopping this morning.

This is why I hate winter, Karlmir. I don't suffer arthritis yet, but I get cold to my bones. We're expecting snow next week :/

I've just posted my latest story. Lots of cold weather here; rain, sleet and snow. My arthritis is killing me. How are you people doing?

This is the first time I have read a story on Gilraen. And it was so beautifully written.
I found the way the Elves treated her, with such reverence and understanding, so wonderfully done. What made you choose Glorfindel, instead of Erestor or someone else? Anyway, it was a great idea, nonetheless.
Everything from her time in mourning to her decision to begin her life anew, perfect.

Such a great read! I loved it! :D

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for letting me know you enjoyed this.  It began as a prompt during Back to Middle Earth Month in 2015 when Binka asked for ' a relationship/romance between Gilraen and Glorfindel'. I'd never really thought of such a possibility, but I wanted to see if I could make it work.

I find they still come into my mind at odd moments and I actually wrote a set of drabbles, st  some years later, a few months ago.  I don't think I posted them here -I should, but in the meantime they are on my journal <a href="http://curiouswombat.livejournal.com/511291.html">here</a> if you want to read them.

“O! Tra-la-la-lally

Here down in the valley!”

 

The Lord of Imladris burst out laughing, and then joined in.

 

“My daughter used to sing that as a child,” he said.

 

Suddenly he seemed more like a person to Gilraen, although she had not realized until now that he had a daughter.

 

LOve those references! Love the whole gentleness of this and that gorgeous dance of courtship of first flush of love. Beautifully written as always.



Author's Response:

Thank you.  I wanted to show her slowly emerging from the fog of loss and become more aware of her surroundings, and of herself as a very young woman!    I am considering that this could easily expand - maybe in a few months time....
