I really enjoyed reading...
and yes it is definitely possible to remember being only 2 yrs old. I can remember my second birthday...I got a teddy bear that I still cherish today!
so a frightening occurance like battle would very probably be remembered, unless in his young mind the fear and sorrow were too much and he blotted out the memory...that sort of thing can happen with deep trauma...
Thanks for the great read!

Until you mentioned that the child was 5 I thought the child was 7 or 8.

Good story so far. I'm going to read more. I'd like to find out how Estel helps Erestor. Sometimes little children have wisdom that is not often found in older people. I don't know how old Estel was in this story, but I'm guessing he's 6 to 8 because he seems too old for a pre school age child and too young for a 10 year old.

I love you Erestor! *coughs* Ur...anyway...great story. It was decidedly adorable and sweet. Brava!

This is brilliant. Especially liked the account at the start and end and the way you depicted Erestor. Plus Estel's conversation with him was very much what you'd expect from an insightful and intuitative 5yr old (I've met a few myself). Elrond and the twins were also well played out. Lovely little piece...my only crit is that it would have been amusing to see the rest of the household's or at least the twins reaction to a 'playing' or smiling Erestor.

Erestor is one of those strange elves- everyone has him written the same way: always sardonic, often grim, and sometimes angsty. How strange that all the Erestor stories are written this way!
But I like him angsty too. Some one has to be. : )

A very nice ice- (or as Elrond changes it, glass-) breaker. Thanks for a nice read.

Indeed, sometimes in reaching for a simple joy we can lose the pain we thought was holding onto us when in reality we were clinging to it.

A sincere question does have a good chance to be answered, after all. Already a wise one.
| Larner 11/27/09 . chapter 2
Ah-the old "How much should we tell the children?" argument. I have a strong suspicion if anyone will understand, it will be Estel.
| Larner 11/27/09 . chapter 1
An interesting introduction. And he feels responsible for Gil-galad's death, apparently?

I do not know the FFVII stories to which you refer, but it does not matter in the least. This story stands up well without the prior knowledge. Well done.

aragorn remembering? at five, yeah, there's no stretch at all to believe that he'd remember the death of his parents three years before. when i was in kindergarten, i remembered a lot of stuff from when i was really little.
i'm in love with angsty-erestor-brought-out-of-his-self-imposed-she ll-by-lovable-estel stories xD

What a sweet ending to a lovely story such as this. I always did love Estel moments but his little conversation with Erestor, eventually opening up the emotionless elf and making him smile again was definitely wonderfully done and made me feel all warm and fuzzy in the inside. And then, with this last chapter, when they both say goodbye, it was a double moment of a tearjerker and heartwarming. Great job!
