Ysilme, that does sound wonderful, I am so jealous. There's something magical about a really good concert.

I've been to the most wonderful concert yesterday, Swedish Folk string trio Väsen. The music was so beautiful, and it felt so much like Middle-earth, too. (now I need to figure out

:D this fic keeps mutating. So far it's sprouted four OCs and an unexpected plot twist which impacts stories that come chronologically later in the series...it's a nightmare but I love it!

This is so good! The characterization was suburb and so complex; I could really see Curufin and Finrod popping off the page. And their chemistry was incredible, as hot as it was heartbreaking.

The dialogue was really well done too. You have such a talent for it!

I keep coming back to how much I loved this portrayal of Curufin. It’s a bit different from the traditional in that he’s less manipulative and actually wants out of the Oath. I like it. And I just love this story!



Author's Response: Wow! Thank you so much! I wrote this story originally as part of the Slashy Swap challenge, and I don't think I've ever had a Silmarillion story that was received so well (now if only I knew how to duplicate it. Heh.) It's funny, some writers have their characters fully laid out before they even type a single word on the blank page; some others start with only a sketch; others just write and see what happens. I'm somewhere in the middle, but I have noticed that I tend to 'hear' the characters before I see them. Lines of potential dialogue will come way before the actual character emerges on the page. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I love trying to find the non-traditional angle to things. It's more fun! I really appreciate you taking the time to review too.

I saw this come up in the random story box and I just had to drop in to mention once again how much I enjoyed this. The descriptions are so very well done, I could really see the scenes in my mind. The pairing of Finrod and Curufin is unusual but you made it work and their connection through their respective oaths is as powerful as it is poignant.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Bard! I'm so glad you stopped by again to read--and review. It's always much appreciated! This story remains one of my favorite projects--it was a real challenge, and I really fell in love with Finrod and Curufin, despite myself and those pesky oaths. :) Hope life is treating you well.

This is beautifully written, Marchwriter. I am sure the recipient was thrilled. Well, I know she was! Lovely writing, intense and passionate.

Author's Response: Thank you! I think Oshun was pleased. It was challenging and great fun to write. All kudos the My Slashy Valentine fic moderators for putting the exchange together. I wouldn't have written it otherwise.

Utterly amazing work! I have read Celegorm/Finrod before this but Curufin/Finrod is a first. The way you portrayed the oaths that held both of them was brilliant. Curufin's ability to perceive Finrod's thoughts on the future of Nargothrond and the story of Finrod and Amarie - simply beautiful. Excellent work:)

Author's Response: Thank you so very much! I have never written either of them before this, and Oshun's prompt was really wonderful, challenging and fun. Finweians are always fun and as easy to herd as a pack of cats. But they went for me in the end. Glad you enjoyed it!
