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. :)

That sounds like a nice silver lining, Ziggy!

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

Reviews For Comfort and Joy

I think you've handled this relationship really well.

There's strong emotion in that exchange in front of the Gates in the Unfinished Tales and also a sense of other ties, whether of loyalty or friendship, and this bitter-sweet scenario fits that and what might be their previous history.

I also like how you've handled the background, with just the right amount of detail, especially that description of Glorfindel and Ecthelion by the hearth.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! And yes, totally agree with you, there is such a sense of history and emotion in that passage - and then we never see them together again! I had to fix that ;) and I'm pleased you liked the backdrop of the story too, I did have to be a bit careful, there was a temptation to include much more of Glorfindel and Ecthelion - but this isn't their story.

Lovely, Narya. Unexpected pairing but oh you made it work so well!

Author's Response: Thanks Nelya :)

I just read this again, and found something else I loved; despite the fact that it was supposed to be comfort for the long winter night I think they actually did find something else, something more, and something you can explore further :)

Author's Response: :) Yes, I think there's more to this than a one-nighter, although it's not a straightforward happily ever after either! (What ever is...?) Thank you so much.
