Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Reviews For The Knot

Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: February 11, 2013 17:49 · For: Chapter 1

OK- need to find your Maedhros series please. He is beautiful and misunderstood and flawed- what more could I want. I'm with Fingon here and I love this sort of aloofness you create with him. Not the fiery passion you expect with Feanorians- but I think more accurate= Maedhros was different, more thoughtful, more resilent too perhaps? More tortured. 



Author's Response:

More tortured, definitely!

As for the fiery passion, perhaps you might want to have a look here?

You write the best Maedhros/Fingon. I love the conversations they have, and the knot in this one-- that just cracked me up. Those funny bits of awkwardness really make it for me, I think!

Author's Response:

Thank you very much! Of course, with Maedhros/Fingon there is stiff competition, because it has already been done so well by others!

I'm very glad this one works for you. I guess awkwardness and humour is very much part of the way I see things--even the most romantic and tragic moments. Only, it doesn't necessarily make things less romantic or tragic.

This is lovely. Such an unexpectedly sweet, yet funny moment between them -- and something that is far too rare.

Thank you for sharing this.

Author's Response:

I suppose I think tragic elves are as likely to be a little clumsy at critical moments as anyone else! And their bond would only be the stronger, I think, if they had laughed together as well as wept together. At least in my 'verse, they have.

Thank you very much for reading and commenting!

Lovely, poignant, and so close to the end that I cannot help but have tears in my eyes. These two reduce me to a watering-pot every single time I think about their separation.

Author's Response:

Same here. I do think their separation is the saddest thing. Of course, I love them both...

Thank you very much for reading and commenting!
