Poignantly sweet...
Glory Bee chapter 2 . 5/28/2012
So poignant, beautifully and compassionately written.
Glory Bee chapter 1 . 4/4/2012
A heartbreaking story, it must have been so much worse for Amarie to deal with Finrod being rehoused as an elfling who does not remember her, than it was for his parents who get the opportunity to parent him all over again.

I love this. It's in my opinion one of the best Finrod/Amarie fanfics I've ever read. Will you please consider writitng more fanfiction again?

Hello again.

I am extremely dense. I did not think to look to see if there was a second chapter before I submitted the review. Even so, I am, once again left in tears. A beautiful story indeed! Your adult Finrod is as well-written as the child. And a happy ending, absolutely perfect! Again, I thank you for sharing this story and letting us dwell a while with Finrod and Amarie.

That was absolutely beautiful! It left me in tears. Did you ever write a sequel? Do Finrod and Amarie ever get back together in your universe? I hope so! I am a complete sucker for good Finrod stories. You have the child Finrod soperfectly in character here. Oh, and of course, Finarfin i another of my most favorite elves, and having a good dose of him and Earwen in the story made it all the better. I'm going to share it with a friend right now. Thanks so much for taking the time to write and post it!

I never reviewed this but I've read it through many times and every time I enjoy it. You should write more Finrod/Amarie

Evenstar Elanor chapter 1 . 5/3/2004
o very good, like most your works! a bit confusing first, but i lov ethe connection between the past and present, and how you work the past so vividly and craftily within it. very very very good!
Miss Aranel chapter 2 . 4/30/2004
E! *hopes about in happy surprise* I'd thought this was just a one-shot! Imagine my delight when I checked silm-fics today and saw that there was a *second* part!
I love how you showed Amarie slowly move away from Finrod - first waiting, and then finally going a way after the encounter at the bookstand. You describe her feelings and thoughts so well, to the point that we can't yell at her and tell her to wait for him to catch up, because you make us understand that the possibility that he will never remember completely is a real one.
The little description of Finarfin and Finrod coming out of the house was nice as well - liked seeing irritated young Finrod fussing over his regalia.
For awhile there, you had me terribly worried over Amarie - I thought she might actually slip away completely from grief when you had her near the walls. That would have been quite unfortunate.
And loved Finrod's appearance in the garden, specially the effect his completed memory has had on him. Ai. That would be startling.
Go Amarie and Finrod! Their reunion and Amarie pushing things along just a tad was wonderful - my favorite bit was when she asked him if remembering her eased the dark memories a bit, and when he said it had. Wonderful!
All in all, liked this very much. Your writing style is beautiful as well - very fitting for such a piece.
Thanks for sharing this with us!
Jillian Baade chapter 2 . 4/30/2004
Yes, this second chapter was what was needed. An excellent story, the burden of being a child again, and growing up again with half formed memories of a previous life, and no idea as a child how to handle it has to be why Tolkien apparently abandoned this idea.
A very lovely ending with both Finrod's memory and Amarie coming back to him.
Levade chapter 2 . 4/30/2004
The first chapter of this story has never left me, but I never dreamed you would continue it! I was so delighted to see a second chapter! You have such a beautiful, evocative writing style - the words bring vivid pictures to life. Emotionally it's simply wonderful, and believable.
This really is one of the most lovely stories I've read. Romantic without being sappy and gorgeously written. I wish it got more attention because it deserves it!
Tehta chapter 2 . 4/29/2004
This is absolutely, absolutely lovely. Very well thought-out, and believable, and poetic. I really enjoyed child!Finrod with his strangeness, and then adult!Finrod bantering with his father and delivering that wonderful 'fruit of wisdom' line was a delight. Amarie seems sad and strong and very sympathetic. Well done!
