Auch! At least, he was able to go find help. Will he?
| alexiana75 chapter 1 . 10/31/2012
Well, strange beginning! What is wrong with Elrond? And will be the twins in the story?

Goodness this story is simply fantastic. I love it. I was so distraught by "Elrond's" treatment of Estel early on but I knew something was off! Now I am sad since I have come to the end of the updates!
Should you find the time and inspiration, please update your story!

“Do you not remember the Grey Pilgrim when he visited us only six years ago, with the dwarves?”
Elrond forgot Bilbo! I'm ticked. : )
| Emily chapter 7 . 1/20/2010
Many meetings, LotR! : )
Yup. I knew it.
| Emily chapter 6 . 1/20/2010
Of course he didn't. The story is, what, ten chapters long? It would be too much to hope that Haldir and Aragorn made it to Lothlorien without incident. : (
Well, now that I know the fake Elrond is, indeed, an impostor, I'm no longer going into shock. I feel bruised, though. : /
| Emily chapter 4 . 1/20/2010
GAH! You or Elrond, you or Elrond? You're driving me insane. I suppose the only good thing about this story is it's already done so I don't have to wait for updates.
Next chapter, drat it all!

I spent alot of time today reading this story and I've got to say that I am really loving it.
I'm enjoying your portrayal of the characters, particularly Estel, and the action scenes that you have in this story are pretty good.
The way that you build up suspense, slip in and out of the characters' thoughts and make the action seem really real makes for a fun and thought-provoking story. My favorite kinds of action scenes are ones that both provide insights about the characters and have some action going on and you have captured that well here.
Your use of dialogue is another thing that stands out to me about this story. I like how natural the conversations feel and how you can just fel the emotion in the characters through their talks.
Fics like this make me glad I'm reading stories in the LOTR fandom.

I am enjoying this story immensely! Your characterization of Estel as a 16-year-old is spot on, he actually reminds me a lot of my own teenage brother D. You can see him starting to mature, but he's still got that requisite impulsiveness/stubbornness. The mystery is very well done, and I'm quite curious to see how it all turns out!
| Minerva Organa chapter 6 . 2/20/2009
I was going to wait until I had caught up with this story to review it as a whole, but this chapter was too amazing. I *love* your depiction of Haldir, and the bit of banter that lightens poor Estel's situation. I'm excited to keep reading! :-)

Hey Cal! _ As always- outstanding chapter. I'm really enjoying this story, and I absolutely LOVE your writing style. For example:
[“How long will you continue to act in this manner, Estel?”
He shrugged at the question, eyes staring at the fire and nothing else.
“Sulking is very unbecoming of you.”
“I care not,” he said, his fingers moving to grasp a small twig.]
