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

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Reviews For Lonesome Rider

Name: Kalendeer (Signed) · Date: May 13, 2018 22:24 · For: "East of Eden" - (Maedhros)

What I liked the most in this is that someone actually remembers Himring is still out there! There's something incredibly sad about the place, isolated in the sea and in ruins after the war, like the last standing memorial to the First Age.

The ending though. Did you actually right them as mermaids in the sea, because if you did this is just super fun (especially for Maglor with his songs, he would make an awesome mermaid). The last question would be if the "us" includes Fëanor and some nolofinweans as well or just Maedhros's brothers.

Author's Response:

It's so sad that Himring is forgotten. But rumors are (well, there are maps) that Amon Ereb survived as well and I always but it down to the Feanorians refusing to let Ulmo claim their homes, even if they have been abandoned.

about the last question ... i think for now it's just the Feanorians. It's the Valar returning Maedhros's family to him, for all the work he has accomplished. it'S also a matter of who would be willing to live in Middle Earth again

A happy ending indeed!! The very best, But so poignant and tinged with sadness- and elrond can shout at him to his heart's content (loved that last bit!!). I do hope at some point you are going to bring this all together. Love this so much.

Author's Response:

All but the last chapter is written and I have some kindof happy ending in mind. But mostly, this fic is very sad.

But yes, in the lonely hours he often wondered what Fëanor would've thought of this. Maedhros likes to think he'd bounce down the streets in excitement, demanding to see everything for that's the father that Maedhros wants to remember.


Oh- I LOVE this!!!!!!!! I actually as excited as it can be that Maglor climbs up onto the beach and Maedhros thinks he is a little shit!! And you are NOT an insane traitor that Gil ships Maedhros- how could he not?

Write that porn please.

Actually, I think it works so beautifully. But I do hope you are going to continue with this. 

Author's Response:

After all the crap this family had to endure I think Maedhros likes to remember his father as the exicted craftsman (nerd!) he could be.

And yeah, the Gil-galad/Maedhros thing has been eating me. Why it hasn't been done before? It fits right into the messed up thing that is the Silmarillion.
