Happy birthday for tomorrow, Gabriel! (I am travelling for work and likely to be stuck on trains, so might not have chance to say it on the day.)

Got it, Nelya - thanks for playing! :) I messaged you about DW as it turned into too long a post for the shout box.

what fun, Narya!I just sent you a prompt by PM. I'm not on dreamwidth. Someone please fill me in on Dreamwidth as I'm not familiar with it. Is it something I should look into?

Hi Narya! I sent you a pm. For some reason they usually don’t work for me so let me know if you don’t get it!

Obviously ignore the spaces between the dots...but I know the shoutbox doesn't allow links, so that's the best I can do! Feel free to message me here in response, if you don't have DW

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....
