Yes, the world felt all clean and fresh today - we had a bit of a storm last night but not as dramatic as I was hoping!

We had two storms, late evening and about 1.15, really energetic, incredible lightning! It’s nice this morning though!

Reviews For Coming of Age

Wonderful! I thought Aragorn was punishing Eldarion by making him hold Legolas - I'm glad to see I was right. But poor Legolas - that was a lot of suffering to teach Eldarion a lesson.



Author's Response: Yes, you were right. This is obviously not the first time Aragorn has had trouble with a headstrong Eldarion not listening when he should. He obviously decided he was old enough to truly face the consequences. But poor Legolas.....and poor Aragorn also. Inflicting pain on people you love is not easy, even when you know it helps them. I think seeing his father's distress at doing that had as great a impact on Eldarion as Legolas' pain.

This was absolutely fabulous!
Legolas falling from the tree with nothing but a shout...I can just imagine Gimli's sinking feeling. What a terrible sound!
I just loved how Aragorn held Legolas by the fire especially. There was such a deep closeness there. I wish they'd put a scene like that in the movies, if they could manage to not make it romantic. Oh well, this story was just as good. Beautiful job:)

Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you liked it. I love Aragorn and Legolas when their friendship works like that and they connect. Both of them had a rough time in this story. But they still manage to transcend that!

You write so well, cheekybeak! Gimli's voice is perfect throughout this and you've painted some lovely visual scenes that are very clear. I like the ideas about eldarion growing, not yet a man but soon he iwll best Aragorna dn he be impossilbe- love that closeness between the three of them.



Author's Response: Thank you so much for the compliment. I am glad you thought Gimli's voice sounded ok, especially because your Gimli is so perfect. I think each of them saw Eldarion differently in this. Legolas struggles to understand the rate he grows at and treats him perhaps as younger than he is...hence the fact he seems maybe too lenient. Gimli is in the middle, he thinks Legolas "soft" but also thinks Aragorn treats Eldarion too harshly, treats him as a man when he is still just a boy...and yet Aragorn knows all to well about his sons struggle for maturity and how close he is to manhood. This is obviously not the first time there has been these issues and Aragorn decides it is time for Eldarion to step up to the plate and act like a man since he thinks he is one. And yet through it all the Three Hunters don't lose their closeness.
