Thank you, Alquien :) Unless we have to move to a new server, money is not a problem :)

Just now playing catch up here but anyway, count me in for a donation. I love this archive!

I think it’s important to keep these Tolkien specific archives going, especially with so many dying.

She’s quite willing to keep it hosted on the same server, just the admin/tech work would be done by someone else.

I don’t think we need to worry about the archive going, esteliel just thinks it would be better if someone acted as host/admin who was in the fandom.

I am mostly on AO3 but I like Faerie a lot better than FFnet to be honest, and the best reviews I ever got were on Faerie.

If you do, Ysilme, I will pass you email on to Esteliel :) You would make a great overall host for the archive.

I also might be able to help with the technical site of things. I'll send you a mail, Sîan, for details.

Ooooo!  I have never seen an AU where Luthian goes to the Feanorion’s side!

 

I have to agree with you that Melian and Thingol’s relationship is a bit creepy, but I had mostly focused on how they got together (it seemed like she’d enthralled him or something), but thinking about her continuing to influence his mind, and it being her behind so many of his bad decisions, wow!  That’s interesting!  And appropriately spooky :D

I am with you. Melian's relationship with Thingol is seriously creepy. I mean she lures him in To a forest and enchants him for years.....and that's just the start of it. Not exactly a good basis for a relationship.

I am not a Luthien fan. She was too goody, goody for me.....and she got Finrods blood on her hands too, and he is a favourite of mine. Beren and Luthien...yuck!

This Luthien however was quite spooky. 

I did wonder right through it if Celegorm and Huan were one and the same. :-) 



Author's Response:

I actually read a post on tumblr where its theorised that Thingol acted the way he did because he wished to get away from his wife. He was enchanted, traumatised and possibly viewed everything what his "wife" counseled him to do as the one thing he shouldn't. Even if it meant messing up even more. My guess is that Thingol would've been a very different person, had it not been for Melian.

And yeah, canon Luthien is a little controversial. She has blood on her hands, like everyone else in the First Age. But I still like her well enough. She tried, at least.

But nope. This time Huan is just a dog :D
