This was a pretty good story even though the end was a little sad.

I SHIP IT! Laurind reminds me of Caladhiel from Keeper (Morbid DramaQueen10), another Thranduil/OC story. I love how Glorfindel has green eyes. I always thought he had blue eyes, but he sounds a bit better with green.

I was already going to cheers and all because of the giggly ending, and then...last chapter.
But eventually they do all move to Valinor and live a happy life, yes?

Brother? *frowns*i guessed father.
| Glory Bee chapter 12 . 6/20/2012
A wonderful story though I found the ending very sad and did not expect it to be. :(

You're such a good writer. It's a delight and pleasure to read and reread your stories. Thank you for writing them.

It works for me. Nice story.

Elven custom is very different from modern custom, especially among the Noldor. It is doubtful the Sindar (yes, that is the correct term, because Thranduil is NOT Silvan and I'd be happy to PM you with a full explanation if you'd like, though I suggest reading the Silmarillion. The Sindar are the Teleri who stayed behind while the Silvan are a mix of Avarin and Nandorin). Anyway, in Laws and Customs of the Eldar, Tolkien told us that the Noldor at least exchanged betrothal rings, and they were silver and placed on the index finger of the left hand. They were exchanged for gold rings when they wed a year later. But it is very possible that Sindar tradition would be very different, as customs change like languages. So, using engagement and fiance (which is a french term) is very awkward in this time period.
Overall, I'm still reading and that says a lot for me. I can tell you are a young author, so I've overlooked a lot. You have great potential. And I'll keep reading.

A Glorfindel story! That isn't Slash! YAY! I really enjoyed this chapter, though Laurind has a Sueish feel. But i'm shaking that off and moving on.
I'm assumign that you think elves can communicate mentally with members of their family? Do you have some reference in canon that shows this? I don't mind either way, just curious.
On to the next chapter!
| El Capitan K-rage chapter 12 . 10/26/2007
YES! You have no idea how surprised I was to see this! Nice ending, sad but sweet-it fit. What's your plans for the future story-wise?
| trekqueen chapter 12 . 10/26/2007
had an OMGWTF moment when I checked my mail. :O
So depressing but you're right, it is the proper way to end the story and wrap it up. *sigh* I could imagine if Laurind stuck around she wouldn't let Elrond and Glory hear the end of it for letting Leggy head off on the Fellowship. I'm sure she'll let them have it once he shows up with Elrond after the third age. :O
thank you for this! *hugs*
| Leitheindel chapter 11 . 4/18/2006
ooh, this is great! but, I just wanna ask (so I know) if this fic is on hold? (that'd be to bad... I love it!)
| Leitheindel chapter 1 . 4/18/2006
... wow... you're god!
I don't really know very much about LotR (all the facts and stuff) and I haven't read the Silmarillion (though I keep telling myself I'm going to... :P), but I really love this fic... I think that it'll kind of force me to read the book! D
I'll go read the next chapter!
