Ah, this is cute! I was so worried Glorfindel would end up with a broken heart, but you have the perfect ending :D I loved how oblivious he was to Celebrían’s flirting. Priceless. And little Thranduil ordering poor Galion about was hilarious. I really enjoyed reading these characters in a lighthearted story.

I have a tendency to only read darker, heavy stuff so this was wonderfully refreshing :D I’m the kind of person who worries, and when I didn’t hear from you in a week or so I had to pop over. Your last review on my story I accidently deleted while trying to edit my reply :face plant: I attempted to send you a message through this site, but I don’t trust it got through as I’ve never used that function before.

What I’m trying to get at is that I apologize for my carelessness, and after you left me such a lovely review, taking time out of your day, I wanted to make sure you get my response to it, even if it’s in this strange, round-about way.

So here it is:

“I wonder if he knows Glorfindel is more than a little bit enchanted by him.”

Actually I don’t think he does. Surprising right? But Glorfindel is little more than a child and I don’t think Feanor would have been looking for such a reaction from him, especially since the subject of homosexual love is so taboo in Valinor.

“Glorfindel is a very loving child and a gentle soul, still very sweet and innocent and young -- I hate to think how that will probably be twisted into something sad and broken.”

I know! What is being done to Glorfindel is so cruel (and yet I am the one writing it lol!), but it really does break my heart because he’s losing who he was meant to be and that’s one of the worst crimes I think can be committed against a person. I can’t wait to write him as he turns out in Gondolin though, despite how hard the twisting is going to be for him. I really think at times that Irime has no redeeming qualities when I think about the complete failure of a mother she is. Yeah, I don’t think she really has anything to make up for this right now, though she has to change at least a little bit after everything that happens to the Noldor, and I look forward to the day she reaps what she’s sown.

Thank you again for taking the time to review!



Author's Response: Hi! I am very glad that you enjoyed this story. I loved the idea of making an unusual love triangle work out. And it is always interesting to see how Thranduil and Galion manage to get along. Perhaps I have a heightened sense of the absurd because I seem to often write stories that have odd little quirks in them. Also, I must apologise for not answering you sooner. I am afraid I was caught up with finishing my bigbang fic to go to final beta (so it is ready for posting on April 1st) that I let a good many things slide. Now I see that there are several chapters of your fic to catch up with and enjoy -- and fb too. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to read and review -- I really appreciate your kind words.

Let me tell you, I adore this story. I believe it summarizes the problems of the elvish socity incredibly well. It can not be easy, deciding who to marry when the desicion is nearly irrevocable. But my personal love goes to Celebrian's hesitiation regarding Elrond, because he has been raised by Feanorian's. It implys who difficult Elronds life must have been (or is) at some points.

You have written a great story!

I rather like this love triangle - or, perhaps, square as Thranduil does seem most besotted!

Author's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed this. Yes, Thranduil is besotted despite his young age. :) Thank you so much for your kind words.
