Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

This is truly inspired. And inspiring. My imagination has just gone wild with the possibilities- I love this, Narya. You write with such delicacy and beauty- I am awed, and you tell so very much in this short piece. Absolutely love it.

Author's Response: Aww, Ziggy, thank you so much! :) I think I've said it to you before, but every time I write a one shot, I open up a whole raft of possible backstories and side stories and sequels...I now really want to write more of Galadriel, her struggles to be like Fëanor and yet unlike him, and her relationship with Finrod!

You know reading this, I can't help but feel Feanaro and Galadriel are so very alike in so many ways.

Both forces of nature and forces to reckon with, in nature. Highly intelligent yet that intelligence can seem a curse at times.

But in mentioning all the above, it was lovely to have Finrod and Galadriel share a few moments together.

He is so patient and understanding and kind, I could go on and on, and beautiful because of it. She really needs him, needs his calming presence, for she expects so much from herself.

It must have broken her heart when he died and the manner in which he did. :(

Lovely Narya.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you. I really liked writing them together :) patient and understanding and kind is definitely how I see Finrod - at least at this point in his life. I think later that grief and bitterness creep in, to an extent - you see that in some of the later fics I've written that feature him. So sad, what happens to him :( and to Galadriel too, I think.

Ahhh....lovely Brother/Sister interaction you hardly ever see between these two. You really captured Artenis/Galadriels force of mind, her potential. Valinor was never going to hold her. She needed more. She always strikes me as someone who wanted control over their own destiny. Some describe her as power hungry.  It to me, she is not.  But she is female and wanted to be on an equal footing as her male relations.

Galadriels behaviour...if done by a male... would not have been seen as negatively as it often is.

LOVED Finrod. Loved seeing them together! How terrible it must have been for Galadriel when he died.....in the way he died.



Author's Response: You're very welcome! I'm glad you liked them :) I agree with you, I think she wanted control over her own destiny, and sadly gave up in the end and went back to Valinor. Maybe it was Finrod's death that broke her, or at least started to chip away at that force of will?
