I really enjoy this story, especially the description of Finrod's life in Middle-earth (keeping the Noldor and Sindar from fighting each other instead of Morgoth, teaching the Hildor, and generally trying to calm people down), and I really think you are spot-on with the political situation between the Noldor and the Teleri. I was wondering, though, if you plan to continue with it. I would love to see where you would take it!

Now that is how Epic Level Bard looks! (Poor thing)
It's a shame this isn't really completed.

A great chapter - the best one in this story so far, I think.
I like the emergency call option the Valar have given them - it works well in the story, and you're not overdoing it.
And the greatest part is the end - how Findarato's nightmare is what gives Olwë the final conviction that these enemies must be fought, whatever the cost. I can just see him clenching his fists, "his mouth in a thin line", speaking through his teeth, finally promising his aid.
Something that adds to the interest of this story, is the feeling that we as readers know more than the characters. The Elven Kings in Valinor only know as much about Findarato's sufferings in Middle-earth as he has been able to tell them - which I don't think is very much so far.
We, on the other hand, as readers of The Silmarillion, have read the description of his adventures and his self-sacrifice - so we are in the know.

"You will get them if I have to build every last one myself, I swear it."
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This last paragraph, and especially this sentence, really "hit" me, if I can say it that way. You understand what I mean.

Awesome to read another chapter. I was surprised by the point of view you chose. It was quite clever to read about Findarato's return from his parents point of view. Such outrageous rumors that Findarato would cause his own kidnapping! The lengths some people will go to make the world 'fit' with their views. Living in such denial of the truth.

YAY he is back with his parents now. Their love for him and thier concern are wonderful. Olwe is a bit blind to not see what Finarfin and Ingwe saw with the blaming going on. Looking forward to the next chapter.

You've brought out beautifully the anger of Finrod's parents, the guilt of Olwe & Ingwe, and the unfairness of the taunts & accusations that had earlier been made against Finrod.
But the bit I loved most was the comparison between the father and son - "That sounds awfully familiar - I wonder where he learned that."
Great chapter! I look forward to reading more!

Poor Finrod! Glad he escaped! You wrote the kidnapping part very well, neither exaggerating nor trivialising his sufferings. Great job!
| Ellfine chapter 10 . 9/9/2008
yay he escaped! too funny the worry over the frying pan. good luck with the move and the new job!
| Calenlass Greenleaf chapter 10 . 9/7/2008
I missed so much.
Poor Finrod. Drugs and frying pans...
I hope the move goes all right-also the new job.
| Ellynn chapter 10 . 9/7/2008
The part with the frying pen reminded me of Sam in Moria. Good mix of tension, action and humor - even though if you didn't plan the last part. :)
P.s. But you can't leave us to wait much, precious, we wants more, and we wants it soon... Moving is not as important as Middle-earth, precious, it is not.
| Oleanne chapter 10 . 9/6/2008
Ouch! A frying pan! Poor Finrod! Glad that he was able to escape and is now safe. Thanks for another great chapter. I'm looking forward to more.

I like your way of handling the romance - light, subtle and humourous. I dislike treacly romances, and this approach is refreshing!

"Today is for joy" - beautifully put! I loved this chapter!
