I know you wrote this some time ago, but I love your style of writing. To me it almost borders on a type of poetry and I like the way you've taken a piece of the silmarillion, that not many, if any would bother to write about. I think Finarfin has been overlooked by many as a character you can explore. Keep up the great writing, albeit a small piece, it still made an impact. :)

I am new to fanfiction writing and this site but have always wanted to be a writer from childhood. I totally agree with and love that every writer has a vastly different style from the next, where would stories be with out it. I, like every other writer am passionate about feeding the flame of enjoyment to the readers to keep them spellbound by and glued to every word and sentence. I must confess that I have read one or two short stories and have been too shy to review or have not known what to say without it sounding ridiculous, that is until recently. I love that you have highlighted the reviewing process so hopefully readers out there will think more on giving their thoughts about a story in future.

I absolutely love your Erestor, Glorfindel too and some of the things Erestor said had me in fits of laughter. Awesome story Ziggy!

Author's Response:

I love getting reviews for old fics- this has made my day, Gabriel! I am so happy to get a nice comment about Erestor- he just wrote himself to be honest! Hope you enjoy the rest of this:)

I've just read the scenes with Galadriel and her mirror and have got to say, the images while reading were fantastic, in fact the whole picture you created of Lothlorien was just beautiful. I do love Elrohir and Elladan too, such wonderful characters.

Author's Response:

Thank you Gabriel! I rarely get comments on Galadriel so this is extra nice. I think she is far more interesting than she appears in LOTR- she came over the ice with Fingolfin, went to Doriath and learned under Melian, then founded a kingdom of her own and which she is clearly in charge of!

Just finished reading the story, loved that whole situation with Elrond, Vilya and the ONE, so damn awesome and I also wanted to mention the beautiful sensual and mischievious relationship going on with Aragorn and Arwen. It was such a breath of fresh air to see these two barely be able to keep their hands off each other. And Legolas, Legolas, Legolas, what a sweetheart, so young and so easily swayed.

Author's Response:

How very lovely to get this review, Gabriel- thank you for seeing the Aragorn/Arwen thing going on as very few peope mention that and I really enjoyed writing a rather frustrated Arwen with a romantic Aragorn. He's going to have a bit of shock when she arrives in MT and expects him to stop worshipping her and become a proper husband- but I htink she is wise and clever and will sort everything out to her satisfaction.

 

Yes- Legolas. Love him so much in this!! Thank you as well for noticing the Rings- I think Tolkien created something wonderful and never got round to really explorin them because he ditched the One rather quickly:) I've got plans for Vilya;D

Please bare with me, sometimes I get so taken with the story, I forget to review.
Maedhros in the mirror, battling the Balrog and Erestor's desperation at not being able to save his Lord, so, so sad, I almost cried. And Maedhros hoping Fingon has been reborn. :( great story though.

Author's Response:

Of course! I am always happy just to know someone is stuil lreading old fics- if I get a review, that's a bonus. Maedhors is, I think, one of the most tragic characters in Literature actually. He tries so hard to do the right thing, and it all ends in tears. As Eonwe predicted. I just love the idea that all he really wants in Fingon back:( Maybe one day...

 

Thank you for reviewing:)

Date: April 16, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1: Return Journey

I really do like seeing Olorin come through when Gandalf uses any of his power, it just makes him seem that much more powerful. I really wish that they had included this in the movie versions. Love it. :)

Author's Response:

Thank you, Gabriel! I agree- PJ almost ignored the whole bit about Gandalf, but I think Tolkien sort of skips over it a bit too. He doesn't really reveal his power very much and it's all off-stage really. Look at the fight with the Balrog! It's just told as a side story but it's a major thing to kill a blarog- look at the way Glorfindel has lived off it for Ages:) I'm so pleased you are enjoying this fic. 



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: April 24, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1: Return Journey

So much angst in the last part of this chapter. I was so excited when this stranger turned up to save the day and knew the stranger was Maglor or was hoping it was him. The shame he has for his name and for what he has done, has kept him from seeing Elrond and meeting Tindomion and of course the problems that would inevitably arise if he was to turn up in Imladris. Even though it was a sad part to the story, it was also so good to see him. :)

Author's Response:

I loved writing this chapter- one of the most enjoyable I have ever written! Maglor joining them is just such a joy and of course, Glorfindel whispered something to him that we don't know. Thank you for reading this older fic- it's been good to get me back to it as the current fic Where the Shadows Lie, is really a continuation of this.

Thanks again Gabriel!



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: April 25, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1: Return Journey

Great ending Ziggy, a real pull on the old heart strings. Poor Erestor who longs so much to have seen Maglor, but missed out.
He's really quite tortured over watching the beautiful bright stars of the whole House of Finwe die out one by one.
And Maglor stepping foot inside Phellanthir, so sad and yet beautifully done.
You created such wonderful characters, with the twins, both so vastly different from one another and so likeable.
Don't forget Tindomion, loved him too.
There is something I have been thinking about recently. I have read some of Spiced Wine's Vanimore and thought if it was possible, if you're Erestor and her Vanimore could be in a story together. Just an idea. I'll leave it with you, but I would love to see these two together.
Great story. :)

Author's Response:

Oh my dear Gabriel- what a thought!!! Erestor and Vanimore! I might do that as a one shot sometime for Spiced and you but I have two fics on the go right now and am so busy at work!! I'll see in the Summer holidays when I get a proper chunk of time.

I am so glad you enoyed this story- I admit to being pleased with the ending with Maglor making an appearance that I never expected at the start. I have to resolve that of course in this current fic. Thank you for such lovely, warming comments- it's really made my week!

Oh, Cheekybeak! It had me in fits of laughter. I'm another who does not know the super intricate details of the Silmars, but I'm learning. Love it! :)

Author's Response:

Thank you! So good to get a review on this older story. :-) I am glad it made you laugh! It's always so hard to tell...sometimes I know I think things are funny, but does everybody else?



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: April 26, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: In which Eru gets Creative

Oh Cheekybeak!, my sides hurt so much. I didn't realise how many times Turin did not think things through and ended up accidentally killing someone.
I really like the inappropriately placed chasm poor Saeros fell into while Turin chased him naked, {a suspect eyebrow arched}.
What's going on with Thingol and his suspect way of weighing the severity of certain actions in his mind.
Maybe Tolkien lost the thread of where he was going with the storyline at times especially with Luthien and Beren, I think I've had enough of them to last a lifetime.
Love it. :D



Title: Where the Shadows Lie by ziggy
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 97]
Summary:

Not only the Three survive Sauron's fall, and not all darkness is vanquished. Sequel to Sons of Thunder. Warnings: loads of slash, dark lust, non-con/dubious consent, Sons of Feanor, dodgy Science.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The One Ring has been destroyed and Sauron banished to the Dark with his own Master, Morgoth. But not all the Rings were destroyed with it; the Three made by Celebrimbor to counter the One are free now and there are artefacts still in the ruined cities of both Mordor and Eregion. And the fate of those lesser Rings is not known...yet. Against this, Legolas and Elrohir struggle in their new found love and not all is smooth. By any means.
