Wow- a real clanger there! LOve the description of erestor's hurt.
Thank you! :o)
Well I love this chapoter, being a horseyt sort of gal. And it gives Galadriel a nice softer, kinder side than she is normally given.
She has so many facettes, hasn't she? I like her very much in general, but particularly when she is not the Lady of Lothlórien, but the woman, mother, wife, cousin, sister, girl, whatever...
Yes- I remember now. I've read this before and am thoroughly enjoying reading it again. It was that lovely description of erestor that twieaked my memory.
:D I'm glad it works this way, thank you so much!
Lovely description of Lothlorien but I really like grumpy Glorfindel who pats his poor little plain horse because he thinks she might feel it.
Thank you! I had much fun imagining Glorfindel's reaction to a horse not up to his old standards.
This is so delicious- espeically Galadriel's peal of laughter- very vivid. I have found this as a kiss-away-the-spam-bot review but really like it and am going to read on. So the spam bot did me a favour!!
Thank you again! *hugs* Such a delight to see so many notifications this morning, thinking it was a spam bot again, and seeing it was from you! What a lovely trea. I'm also happy you like my Galadriel here.
You certainly fulfilled the brief Ysimle, which wasn't east, and I like the Erestor we have here contrasting with the cooler and rather insecure and defensive Glorfindel.
Thank you again! I'm happy you gave this a chance. Since I posted this fic on the exchange it has been brooding again in my mind, and I still find the half-brother incest part feeling too forced into that story and relationship. The story doesn't sing well to me, which is why I'm planning to rewrite it, with a slightly different spin on their relationship, and without a real incest situation. I have an idea which might be much more intriguing, relationship-wise... ;o) and while Erestor the groom is not my headcanon Erestor, he has already become dear to me and demands more screen time. He decidedly knows what he wants, that one.
Oops- so his father was unfaithful and, he has slept with his brother!! What a tangled web! But what a way to find out- blabbermouth Amdir!
A tangled web indeed, although I fear it shows that I found it difficult to put that bit of back-story in. It's not the subject itself, but one I find very difficult to do justice whithin the limitied time and fic-lenght possibilities of an exchange. The unfaithful part is difficult, I admit; I have difficulties with the expectation of elves left alone by death or migration of their spouses to Valinor, or moving to Valinor leaving their spouses behind, that they should remain lonely until they meet again - if that happens. I'm mulling some ideas over in my head-canon, but I'm not really satisfied with any possible solution yet. *g*
This is a nice touch- so this is how he got Asfaloth (the first anyway)
Thank you! I think Glorfindel has had more than one Asfaloth. Perhaps he will continue breeding with this first one, and every time a descendant looks similiar enough, he inherits the name as well?
Hm.Erestor the groom? An unusual occupation but oddly fitting. And very nicely described:)
Thanks! The assignment was quite a challenge, although I was looking forward to write the pairing for the first time. But I knew I had to change them both considerably from my usual headcanon to be able to write it to the recipient's liking.
I missed htis fic! So sorry. But that means there are lots of chapters to read! Nicely intriguing start and I love Elrond's embarrassment.
Thank you so much! This is acutally the first time somebody said they missed a fic of mine, which is quite a lovely feeling. ;o)
