Oh my dear Ziggy! What are you doing to yourself. I hope you heal quickly and you're back in the saddle, so to speak, as soon as possible. :)

The really nice thing is that I actually have some time to read and write after working for home all day- instead of working at work and then working at home!

Naledi- haha- yes, hoist by my own wished-for-petard! That doesn't quite make sense. Thank you as well Fadestothewest and Ysilme, Narya- I am actually lucky. Could have been much worse!x

OMG! Narya!

I cringed while reading your description of the spider body parts.

'Swollen, bulbous pedipalps; trembling abdomens, heavy like rotten fruit.' EEEEW! Absolutely disgusting.

Wonderful concept that all of the House of Finwe have that innate fire hidden deep within, something they can call forth to aid them when the need arises.

I love the idea that her uncle forged a sword for her. I like to think that once upon a time there must have been a great deal of harmony between the great Houses of the Noldor Princes.

Super Narya. :)

Author's Response: Hehe, thanks Gabriel! I wanted the spiders to be gross so I'm glad it worked. And I'm pleased you enjoyed the little details! I will have to see where this fire-gift goes now, having introduced it into my 'verse...

AH- Narya- what a horrible, creepy scene- the spiders description is absolutely brilliant- made me feel quite ill

Echoes of their soft, cruel clacking crept towards her. The faint light of the moon cast their shadows on the walls – swollen, bulbous pedipalps; trembling abdomens, heavy like rotten fruit; angular legs tapping their way through the dark.

That bit is just fabulously descriptive.

I love that she has a Fearnorian sword, and the gift of fire nonetheless. (Would love to know who's vouce becasue it is ambiguous)



Author's Response: Hehe, thank you, I'm glad you think the gruesome descriptions work! As for whose voice it is...well...see my previous response about backstories and side stories! It'll be made clearer in future fics (I didn't plan it, but when the idea occurred I couldn't resist.)

Oh Narya! Thank you! I love it! I love the idea of Aredhel having such bravery and strength. Hidden, untapped depths that she finds in Beleriand--brought out by necessity but still part of the essence of who she is, even if she did not know the fire resided in her too. The spiders were particularly creepy!
And I adored the detail that she is left handed and uses a sword forged for her by Fëanor. It just adds that bittersweet memory when times were better and the family closer.

Author's Response: You're welcome! Thank you for such lovely comments :) I'm so pleased you liked it; I really enjoyed writing it, creeping myself out with the nasty spiders and the shadows and so on. The sword and the voice were a late inspiration and I couldn't resist, so I'm happy you liked! :D and yes, for some reason, I have always head!canoned her as left handed. No idea why, I don't think there's anything anywhere that suggests it.
