Oh, that poor man! Another reviewer said it was just as well that he died before being rescued, though, and I have to agree.

Your Thranduil and Celeborn are very much as I would imagine them to be at a meeting like this. I love Thranduil's prickliness.

Will there be more?

I love your Thranduil. I was particularly taken by his thoughts that if anything had happened to Legolas, he would have killed those responsible and then gone after Elrond. That is SO Thranduil.

The aftermath of the fires was terribly and realistically rendered. These people saw such grim things down through the ages that it is almost unbearable. No wonder deathlessness came to seem a burden.

Oh dear. At first, I thought you were going to have him rescued. But this is a lot more realistic, and humane. I don't like to think about what the Elves would have found, had he still been alive. I will probably have a nightmare about this story,but that's not a bad thing. Proves you have that REALLY scary touch. Great writing!

In a way, it is just as well that Earnur's rescuers arrive too late - what is left of his mind and body would only have been a burden to him, though clearly he still had some instinct to survive.

Again, your Thranduil is wonderful - very much the stern king of The Hobbit, yet an elf of compassion. Legolas' plans for Ithilien will come as a rather bitter surprise, I think.

Celeborn is also terrific - he and Galadriel come from such diametric opposites - somehow they endure the second kinslaying, in which her cousins slay his niece. The difference between the Noldor and the Sindar is never more poignant than in his decision to remain in ME without her.

Good story.

Tinni chapter 1 . 10/19/2003
Why did you change the name? Contortion sounded scarier. I am eagerly awaking the next chapter, although I am certain this fic is going to give me nightmares.

The fate of Earnur is a tragic and fascinating premise for this story. I love your Thranduil and all the detail of the story.
