Reviews For Early Roman Kings

Name: cheekybeak (Signed) · Date: March 09, 2017 9:37 · For: Chapter 1

Oh! Loved this!! Such a contrast from your other Maeglin story, and yet still a "making it all ok for Maeglin" story in the end.

I don't like Idril as a rule. Don't like her at all so it was strange to read her as sympathetic. Rather challenging for me! 

The execution of Eol doesn't make sense to me....because it is kinslaying and seems completely incongruous and yet it just happens...like Elves do that everyday....and I don't think they did.

 

great story!



Author's Response:

Oh you have no idea how happy that comment makes me. I aimed for that this story is vastly different than "Blindhammer" but it's quite another thing to have it confirmed. Idril plays a big role in that. I usually don't like as well, but I refused to believe that I couldn't paint her in a better a light. It's had for her, but she tries to be a better person.

And yeah, Eöl's end ... they could've done anything with him. Look him up, force him to work in the mines. (I think that's the fate which would've awaited him, had Aredhel had lived) But no, he has to be killed. Turgon is such a hypocrite. Yet that's why I like Gondolin. They're the best example what can happen to a cut of and  twisted society.

thank your for reviewing. (I might add a second part. Glorfindel/Ecthelion never interested me before, until now. Just like Maeglin/Idril. Or all four of them together.)
