Lovely, poignant - and interesting.
Beautiful last paragraph. The story is sort of dreamlike and suits the quote. thank you.
Author's Response: Thank you for your comments, Jules. I'm glad you like the dreamlike quality of the story. That's just what I was aiming for so it's great to know that came through. I appreciate your review.
Beautiful! It was so poignant to see Imladris as a ruin and to feel Eldarion's yearning for a glimpse of what it must have been like when Elrond was still there. I'm glad he was allowed his own choice.
Author's Response: Thanks, Naledi. The thought of what the places where the Elves lived must have looked like years after they had gone is interesting to me. I also thought Eldarion deserved a choice of his own. I'm glad this one spoke to you.
Lovely scene setting. I like seeing Imladris still magical even if it's going back to the land. I'm glad Eldarion was able to find love and make his choice. I really like the idea of writing a story inspired by Tarot cards. *g*
Author's Response: The challenge of using the Tarot to represent aspects of the story drew me in. It was certainly a challenge I'd never run across before. I read the question somewhere about Eldarion and his sisters being offered the Elf/Men choice and thought it would make an interesting concept for a story. Also, Eonwe needs a little love too. And I always like to think of magic lingering in the places the Elves lived. It's a favorite theme. Thanks so much for your comments, Elfscribe. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
