The first time I read this, I was just lurking and so I never left a comment.

But this story has really stayed with me--and I don't think I've seen anything quite like this take on Glorfindel anywhere else.

I think this piece takes a risk and it succeeds in what it's doing.

I liked this story a lot when I read it on the exchange site--especially Beleg's POV: his characterization and his voice, but Turin also!

That's a great last sentence!

I like this drabble. It also reminds me of that unpublished epilogue with Sam and Elanor--somebody recently quoted the bit about Sam's sea longing to me.



Author's Response: Thanks! I took my idea from the unpublished epilogue, which to me makes it clear that however settled and happy Sam was, he still had the sea longing inside him. Sometimes finding an ending is hard, sometimes easy. Fortunately this time it was easy. :))

It seems Erestor is passionate about both--his books and his husband!



Author's Response: That he most definitely is!

Nice to think they found each other after all!

I like the idea that Nimrodel could be tracked by narcissus, daffodils and jonquils, the flowers she loved.

Poor Finduilas--so much strife in the family!

No wonder she grasps at the joy she can find with Faindis as long as she can!

I like the description of the seascape.



Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. :)

Where the Stars Burn by Dziude

Rated: General Audience [Reviews - 1]

I like this.

You use the pattern and the repetitions to good effect to capture the emotion, here.

A dwarf may well stare into the fire, on the long evenings out in the wilds. Or gaze past it, to what is behind- and what is inside himself.

This might be my favourite line:

"I learned it in the gentle touch of a cool, dirty hand to a bandaged head that sent me giddy, in spite of the hard heads or stiff necks of my kind."
