I was very proud of myself when I managed to understand the drunken guy's accent without the translation at the bottom. That is what comes from too much Tannahill Weaver! He was quite obviously drunk.

... Impressive; I loved the meeting between Elrond & Celebrian. My favorite part, though, had to be at the very end... I wonder how the twins answered Aragorn's question?

Wow! Another excellent fic! I love the way you used one place to create several little scenes that centered around it and also how, at the end, they were bound together in one plot.
And the song. Well... just one word. Hilarious. I think that use of different dialects for the drunk and thieves gives nice touch to the whole story.
But my favourite part of this fic is scene between Celebrian and Elrond. You managed to capture their powerful emotions very well. I also liked the fact that it is different than usual " Elrond and Celebrian" scenes I 've read.
So, all in all, the great story once again.
Sorry, but I just have to ask: when will you update "Erestor and Estel" and/or upload your story about Erestor's past?
Anyway, I really enjoyed this story and impatiently wait for the next.

That ford did have a lot of traffic that night, sort of like rush hour at a river. I like Elronds reasons for keeping it up.

Good story! :3 Thank you for the nice light read. Just what I wanted tonight...
Anyways the only nitpick I could find in the whole thing was calling one of the twin's horses a "Gelding". It is the proper term for a male horse nowadays (usually) but in Middle-Earth geldings would not be common. Why?:
A gelding cannot sire any foals. This is generally from unnatural reasons, (spaying/neuturing) though the stallion may "lose it" when he is older. I'm not sure. I really never asked my riding instructor THAT one. Heh. So-able to sire foals: Stallion Not able to sire foals: Gelding.
If I'm wrong, PLEASE correct me, but I'm am almost possitive this is right.

A pleasant surprise to find this story. That's quite a variety of events for a single location so little frequented.
One point: your "faer" should be fëar, and is plural. The singular, fëa, is the proper word here. [And in case doesn't like my diacrits, "fear" is plural, and "fea" is singular.]

Very nice story. I love the way a place could mean so much, and how a single place can be a silent witness to everyone's secret thoughts and conversations. At the same time it is amusing how everyone thinks the place is secret and only they know about it.

In turns humerous and poignant. Beautifully written. I especially liked the tryst between Elrond and Celebrian. You really brought the passion between tham to life.

/I have no idea why the drunken man speaks in a Scottish highland dialect. He just does./
That's the best explanation for anything-"I don't why I wrote a cliffy. I just did." :)
Congrats on winning third, Pentangle. :)
