Reviews For Voices in the Wind

Nice story. I like Haldirin!

Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review - it is really appreciated. As for Haldirin - I have to admit to being rather fond of him, too, and I have enjoyed writing him as he grows up.

You do like the ghost stories, don't you! It is a great story, and I love how Rumil did not quite say whether he saw them or not. I LOVE the Tindome stories!

Author's Response: Thank you! I think this may well be the least scary ghost story of all time... I am going to start posting the next long story either tonight or tomorrow, where this incident actually is mentioned at one stage.

Good start. Can't wait to see what happens to Haldirin, or what happened to Haldir.

Author's Response: Thank you - actually it's not a start, though. it is a short story as part of a long series - it is rather like one of those small beads between the larger beads in a necklace - there to fill the spaces between the longer works and leave tiny echoes for the longer fics to pick up. So over the next few tales, both long and short, Haldirin will continue to grow up and develop. Haldir, though - Haldir died many miles from Lothlorien - Haldirin is named in his memory - and Haldir's brothers hope to be reunited with him when they sail West... only time will tell whether he will be waiting for them on the dockside, or not!!

I love this! I love many details about it; for example, a little bit of humor when Haldirin thinks about "adult things". Then, I love the atmosphere of melancholy and sadness - yes, the elves carry the old days in their hearts, but still, a reader can feel sadness for the empty Lorien. And yet, you managed to find perfect balance - the atmosphere is not too sad. I like the final talk between Rumil and Orophin and little, but important details in it (leader voice, for example). Beautifully done, my friend.



Author's Response: I'm glad I got that balance, of melancholy with touches of humour, right. And I am always so pleased when someone notices the small details - thank you.

As always, you manage to weave a lovely sense of nostalgia into something so seemingly ordinary in some ways- Haldirn is an interesting little fellow, isnt he? I love the garden and the fish- and in spite of it being abandoned, it is not a sad place but full of flowers and beauty still.



Author's Response: Thank you. I think the elves must have been almost overcome with nostalgia occasionally throughout the whole period - so much had changed, so much had gone. And yet I like to think of that colony in Ithilien being young, and vigorous, and full of joy, most of the time. I love writing Haldirin - as he grows he is so much fun.
