Oooooo!  Elrond is so interesting here!  I love the contrast between him and Glorfindel.  Glorfindel who is hiding from the dead (he’s got a lot of regrets) and who seeks out the company of the living on this night, whereas Elrond has so much of his heart with the dead and he fears their coming not at all.  It is probably one of Elrond’s favorite days of the year!  I like this portrayal of Elrond a lot, and you have got me intrigued by his strength; I can totally see too how the Maia-blood made him stronger than other Elves.

 

This was such an intriguing story!  And that glimpse of Luthian with the sharp, predator’s teeth was just the icing on the cake :D



Author's Response:

Oh, I like the describtion that Elrond's heart is with the dead because it's essentially very true. Though in his case it's fitting to say ... his loved ones are dead, not gone. I imagine that with his Maia blood and Viyla perhaps he just doesn't have this one week/night to meet with his parent. It's not like as if being dead could stop Maedhros. Well, now I've the image that Elrond as a number of dead kin who try to counsel him over the years ... hence why Elrond lasted so long.

and *cackles* ... I imagine Luthien stopped trying to pretend after her death. She's not just a pretty princess. Besides I also believe that her time travelling through and into Angband changed her somewhat. You don't get to steal a Silmaril and escape without a vew scratches on your soul. 

Thank you for reviewing :D

I really liked this.

I started off wondering why Glorfindel, who has returned from the dead himself, would be frightened of ghosts. But that became obvious. 

I am with you. The murder of Eol was kinslaying, and pretty cold blooded. But it is like because Eol is a strange wild creature he doesn't count, and his death doesn't count. 

He was still an elf.......and they still killed him.



Author's Response:

I'm so happy to hear from you! I worried about you after I heard what happened in NZ. Visited the country once so I actually knew what the reporters were talking about!

But to your review, I think Glorfindel is a very down to Earth guy. Despite having returned from the dead himself, he didn't experience it as magical apperance. He likes rules, strategies and scenario's he can fight. Spirits? That's something else. Especially since he DOES know that killing Eöl was wrong but facing Eöl himself? Being haunted by his fea? That makes him really uncomfortable and he doesn't know what to do with the knowledge that the world is far larger than he thought it was.

But yes to all your points. Killing Eöl was an act of Kinslaying. To Turgon's defense ... what could he have possibly done? Imprison Eöl would've been even crueler and perhaps even more problematic for Maeglin. In the end it's normal for feudal societies to handle criminals this way but it's the moral standpoint I don't like. Idril especially probably picked up on the "Maeglin's father is a murderer" thing ... it's a stigmata/problem Elves never encountered before.
