The air was somehow thin out here, the scant light grey and quiet and gone too soon. Aredhel drew her knees up to her chin and pulled her fur-lined cloak tight, as though she could squeeze out the cold and dissolve the snarling ache in her stomach with the warmth her garments trapped. Salt wind licked her face. They were nearing thin ice, or else straying close to a breaking point, one of the jagged edges where great flat floes tore free from the frozen wastes and nudged one another out, out into the open sea. 


This is a superb description, Narya- you've got every possilbe sensation into one succinct but beautifully written paragraph. It's one of the things I admire so much in your writing.

Oh, and your description of the northern lights is breathtaking.  Have you actually seen them? It feels so real that you must have.

Author's Response: Ahh, thank you! I have indeed seen the aurora, it appears over St Andrews and Edinburgh occasionally. (God, I miss Scotland.) A very happy new year to you!

Wow! I don't think I've ever read a story with Egalmoth in it. But these two are so sweet together and such a different and unique pairing.

Your description of the Aurora was beautiful. We get the southern lights here in nz. They've started appearing a lot further north, here in the city, only in the last year or so. So its quite an experience for us city folk.

Lovely chapter Narya.

Author's Response: I absolutely love these two, I don't know how or why I started thinking of them as friends, but that's it, the deed is done :P thank you so much, and Happy New Year!

Such beautiful descriptions in this! And I can taste and ‘feel’ the terrible cold of the Helxaraxë. I don’t know how you do it. 

And the Aurora. Have you ever seen them yourself? I have not, as they rarely appear this far south. I can imagine the wonder of seeing them for the first time. Lovely. 

Author's Response: Thank you! I have a ridiculous amount of Thoughts on the friendship between these two :P and yes, I have seen the Aurora. They can be seen from St Andrews and Edinburgh from time to time, although rarely with all the spectactular colours described here; they were mostly green. They also appear over Galloway, where we go at least once a year, but I've never seen them there - usually because by the time it's dark enough, we've hidden ourselves away with a roaring fire and a glass of wine!
