Absolutely lovely. The inclusion of the story of Maglor is perfect. Maglor and Maedhros are some of my favorites from the Silmarillion. It's great to read about them here.

I think it's high time to post this review as I have just re-read this story. And I do re-read it from time to time, and it never fails to bring tears to my eyes: you have captured and and unfolded carefully something so precious and great and significant that I feel both humbled and inspired by its vibrant mightiness. And I honestly don't recall a story on love (non-romantic, I mean), which would have moved me so deeply with sheer wording and emotion behind the phrases: there is no action, there is no event as such, and yet... and yet...
Young Estel is a marvel, and it's amazing how true and deep his feelings run at his young age already. Maybe, it's also the reason why his aching insecurity invokes so much sympathy in me. And Elrond... no, words fail me: his sensitivity, patience and tenderness are beyond comments as well as beyond measure. And I find it realistic and believable he finds a special consolation in his foster child (which *by no means* undermines the joy his own children bring to him).
...It's wonderful they have each other.
Thank you ever so much for sharing this!

Elrond is so wise...
I know that's his thing, no surprise - but he just pays attention and takes things slow and says exactly the right thing, then takes the kid for a walk. If only it was always that easy (no kids of my own, but I'm assured it's not :-P). Then again, as Estel has no other kids around he probably tends to act more adult...
Very nice story, thanks! :-)
I'm caught up now, I think - I've read them all. That's sad... :-( But at least there's more to come! Will be looking forward to it...

Your portrayals of a family's simple affection bring tears to my eyes. Write more! 3

This was a wonderful story. I found Elrond's words wonderfully true. I also appreciated how he didn't simply give answers to Estel, but he helped him come to certain understandings on his own. Helping Estel figure things out for himself helps him own the answers he finds, and thus, they stay in his mind and heart.
