Title: A Light In The East by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 104]
Summary:

A crossover gift-story between Esteliel's Ethuil'waew and my Dark Prince verse.

What would have happened had Legolas not been able to flee to Imladris and Glorfindel when he found he was pregnant? What if he fell into entirely different hands?
~~~
After the Last Alliance, Vanimórë, freed for a time from Sauron's control, made himself the ruler of a Sud Sicanna, a wealthy city in the Harad. Five hundred years later, he journeys to Szrel Kain on the Sea of Rhun where rulers of the East are meeting to discuss renewing their attacks upon Gondor. Vanimórë goes to gather information, to keep his finger on the pulse of events.
~~~
Legolas, banished from his home, wanders into the hands of a clan traveling back to Rhun after a summer of trading. The Men, afraid he will bring ill-luck on them, mean to sell him, and in lands where the Dark Gods are worshiped Legolas' uniqueness would mean sacrifice, the death of both himself and the child he bears: Glorfindel's son.
~~~
He falls instead into the hands of the Dark Prince, the son of Sauron, who understands neglect and abuse only too well...
~~~
Glorfindel felt anguish as deep as a crack in the world in Vanimórë's soul.

“I know how Legolas feels better than thou canst imagine. Thou didst name me Vanimórë. That is my name in truth. Thou hast penetrating sight, or did. Vanimórë Gorthaurion. The son of Sauron holds and will protect Legolas Thranduilion and
thy son. Is that not wonderfully ironic, Glorfindel?”

Reviewer: Alquien Signed
Date: July 27, 2011 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 ~ The Fruits Of The Soul ~

It is fascinating to see how *everyone* is reacting to the 'Faerboth'.

I wonder if Legolas will realize just how much of a catalyst he is.

This is just amazing writing once again. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story.

Author's Response:

Yes, Sam, it is interesting, because really it should only effect Glorfindel and Legolas, but it seems to be a bit more complex than that...poor Legolas does not know much at all at the moment, but as time goes on, I hope he will.

Thank-you so much, Sam!

"Oropher had told Thranduil of the gift... and Thranduil, who had never heard the full story before, had been troubled... He could never truly accept this peculiarity of his bloodline..."
--And here is the real cause of all the trouble, or so it seems to me. It is very sad Thranduil fears this gift, which he should be happy about.

Author's Response: It is very sad Thranduil fears this gift, which he should be happy about.

Yes. I agree. I think it is because it is so strange, and he does think it's unnecessary. He is not sure what the *point* is, because in this 'verse Elves are naturally bi ( but of course there will be those who prefer one sex over the other like Bainalph and Legolas and Glorfindel.) so would it have been such a problem for one of the first Elves who received this gift to find a woman who was agreeable to bear a child? I think that shows he did not understand the intensity of a love that precluded that, whereas Glorfindel would, as in Esteliel's 'verse he longed for children but wouldn't marry and 'use' a wife to give him children.

I believe Thranduil would have been accepting and happy had Elv

It is so interesting to see how things unfolded from Thranduil's pov. I really enjoyed this chapter.

Author's Response: Thank-you, Sam. I wanted to write it from Thranduil's perspective because he (like Glorfindel) has a long, hard way to go in making recompense to Legolas, and there are certain things he simply denied and refused to truly face.



Reviewer: Alquien Signed
Date: October 27, 2011 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8 ~ Naked To Truth ~

This is just brilliant writing!

I am very intrigued about the unusual bond that is formed between not only Thranduil and Bainalph but their respective lands as well. That is just an extra layer to an already complicated relationship.

And then there is the whole Elv



Reviewer: Alquien Signed
Date: November 22, 2011 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9 ~ Introspection ~

This is just so wonderful -- what amazing writing! (I really should be giving you line by line feedback, you know.)

I love how cleverly Sauron is playing his role as a Northman -- it is just fascinating. Though I rather hate the idea of how much else he is learning by staying quiet, for the moment. :/

I also find it interesting that some of the Men were also able to see something of the faerboth. As I have said before, Legolas is a key to so much more than *everyone* realizes.

I am glad to know that Glorfindel is finally doing some serious thinking about himself and what he has done.
"He was not Glorfindel the Beloved to Legolas, not a hero. And he had not cared. Until now."
He has a long way to go but I do have some small hope for him now. Better late than never, I hope. Though just how he will make amends, or if it is even possible -- that is still a question.

Thank you so much for sharing this.
*hugs*

Author's Response: Thank-you so much for reviewing, Sam.
Sauron will no doubt remember everything he learns, I'm afraid, and we'll have to see later how much use it is to him.

He has a long way to go but I do have some small hope for him now.

This was a place he needed to get to, a start at least.

Thank-you again for taking the time to comment, Sam!
