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.

Wonderful, Cheeky. I'm not at all surprised you came first. Congratulations!



Author's Response: Thank you! I wasn't expecting it because it is not really a story is it...more a character study , so I thought it might be too boring to get anywhere!

Oh this is nice. Aragon is a complex person. In part always lost because doesn't belong anywhere, yet he has so much brothers and friends. But personally I'll always root for Estel&Elladan&Elrohir. 



Author's Response: Glad you liked it. I agree, Aragorn never really has a home or family until he builds his own in Minas Tirith. I do feel sorry for him about that...how he doesn't quite fit in anywhere. I am writing about that at the moment actually. I like Estel/Elladan/Elrohir also....although having said that I usually write some tension between Aragorn And at least one of the twins over Arwen....and Legolas.....especially when I am writing Legolas/Elrohir slash. I was a bit nervous about the way I wrote the twins in this to be honest. Because it is not how they are usually depicted but I do see them in the fourth age as being very weary and tired of the world.

This is so thought provoking - I really like the refelction of Elrohir and Elladan- too much pain and growing tired, and not fitting into this life of peace. No. They really won't.

But as always, I love most Legolas and the portrayal here of what he means to Aragorn is lovely.

Legolas is beyond the others. He is more. He is brother to all parts of me. There is no place in my life where he cannot wander, no aspect of me he does not know. He will laugh in Sindarin with Estel, roam the wilds with Aragorn, and sit in the council chambers with Elessar.

 

Perfect.



Author's Response: Oh thank you! I was nervous about the way the twins were portrayed here...even thought it is how I see them during this period of time....because it is so not how people usually read them. You know Aragorn was not the first Chieftain of the Dunedain they had watched over and seen grow up and die. I think Eldarion was a step too far, just one too many mortals for them to lose. They couldn't do it. And after a life of Orc hunting and evil fighting...what did they do when it was gone and thier purpose gone with it? Glad you liked Legolas. I wanted to outline his "moreness" to Aragorn. That he was just that little bit extra special...even more so than the twins. ( which says a lot!)
