So sorry to hear about your cat, Caunedhiel, and keep my fingers tightly crossed for him to be all right and come back. It's so hard to lose them, and harder still to not know what's happened.

Thanks Gabriel. It's hard to take in the things that are happening all round the world at the moment.

Ah, I very much liked this. How the cultural differences shine through in Gimili and Legolas. Not to mention that they both struggle how to deal with war and not being with their people to help them directly. Especially for Legolas it wouldn't be easy. Rarely the Fellowship Fics deal with the issue of guilt, leaving your own people behind in need, find out how they died and suffered while you were off on a far different mission. 

Great Writing



Author's Response:

Thank you! I am especially glad you felt a cultural difference between these two. I think it would have been vast but it is difficult to capture in writing. I think both of them would have struggled with being apart from their people...especially the guilt associated with that. And they have no way of finding out, until the end, wether that was the right decision or not.

"If you are really of so little importance, so inconsequential, your father will not miss you surely. You may as well stay with us since you are here." The dwarf sat himself down on a log with a thud, arms folded and smiling smugly. He was quite pleased with this last argument. Outsmarting the elf and using his words against him, for he was a slippery customer and difficult to pin down at the best of times.

 

Lovely.

 

He found the elf where he knew he would. Up in the very heights of the place, perched on the walls at the end of what had been a very tiring climb up winding steps. Why he always felt the need to retreat to places so high the dwarf did not know. 

 

It was a very annoying characteristic. 

 

"What are you doing up here, Lad?" He asked. "Why must I always climb so many steps to find you?"

 

Another beautifully written section.

 

I love this- a really well written and perfect assessement of hpw Legolas makes the decision to follow Aragorn.



Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked Gimli's thoughts about his elven friend. You are seeing the build up to the Helms Deep part of this in The Hands of the King at the moment. Same characters...same universe. So everything you are reading there....Aragorn's neglect of Legolas etc, etc has happened before this. Not sure if that changes the scene at all......maybe it does? Maybe it makes Gimli feel a bit more strongly Legolas should choose self preservation...

Certainly a lot of soul-searching and angst. Well done!

Author's Response: Thanks :-) yip, angst, lots of angst. I have a weakness for it!

Lovely! I like how you use Legolas's wrestling with his choices at those different stages of the quest to highlight the progression of his friendship with Gimli.



Author's Response: Thanks. Poor Gimli, he didn't know how precious their friendship was to him until he thought he might lose it.
