This is lovely. Fullo f sadness and the tragedy of those taken by Sauron and changed. And I felt even sadded that he did not hear the call- thinking that teh Valar had abandoned them. And now this tall, golden-haired Elf arraives ot shepherd them back - what a lovely, compassionate ending.
I cannot imagine what it must be like for a houseless elf - but you convey his emotions very well in this.
Was your golden elf a Maia? or actually another elf, I imagine him being a Maia.
I love the ending to this :)
Author's Response: Thanks for your comments, Caunedhiel, I'm very glad you like this. The golden elf is meant to be Irmo, but I thought it would be more fun not saying for sure in the story.
Oh, what a torture that poor houseless spirit went trough, hovering there by his former home for all those years! It was amazing that he managed to resist the temptation to steal another's body - I hope he gets his just reward for that.
Author's Response: You know me, Lissa, the spirit has to have a happy ending. :-) I envision him being able to find peace and healing after his long ordeal. Thanks for your comments.
Ah, well, your Fait Accompli is incredible stuff, which I hope you ut up!
Author's Response: Ask and you shall receive.
I found this extremely sad, and chilling, but lovely at the end. You really are able to weave the feeling of the supernatural into this, and an awful sense of being lost, almost sensed by others, but so terribly alone. I will go and add this to the MEFA wish list!
Author's Response: You're so kind to me. I like writing dark, but mainly about the feelings of the characters trapped in dark situations. I'm very glad you like this one and that the emotion came through for you.
