Reviews For After Tirion
I had commented on this fic before--but I don't think I'd told you that I really like that final scene...
I've often wondered what became of Tirion too. This is a nice take on it.
Very interesting ideas here, and I have to echo your other reviewers that I am so glad that you did not make Finarfin a wimp. It is always a joy to read him portrayed as a strong king rather than a hand-wringing wimp.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked Finarfin in this story. I never thought Finarfin could be a wimp. Even apart from the fact it must have taken guts to go back and apologise, he was a war leader too.
Wonderfully original. This is the kind of story that makes you go like "Yes, I should read the texts more carefully". I like Fianarfin's characterization: not so meek and humble but with some of his half-brother's personality. Poor Olwe, he always seems to be involved in cleanups of Alqualonde.
Author's Response: Well, Finarfin's been king a few thousand years, it was bound to bring out the Finwian in him ;). Good point about Olwe, I hadn't thought of that but he is another character who seems to get stuch with picking up the pieces. Thanks!
Highly entertaining! And very good questions.
You have really great voices for your slightly irritated Noldor. I can just hear that first line...
It's probably quite a good job they can't make an insurance claim against the Valar ;P
Insurance claim now... oh dear, you've made me start imagining Elf-lawyers. Although it's hard to win a case when your opponent would also be the judge.
Glad you liked it. I could hear the voices too.
Great read! And,as you said, only about half funny. You raise some great issues here. But I did certainly chuckle at this one:
Moreover most of the younger elves had seen little point in learning building skills when so many houses stood empty. “I don’t suppose Manwë would consider a mass release?”
Lots of great lines and speculations.
Author's Response: Thank you:) Can't help wondering if Tolkien *meant* Tirion to be destroyed, or just hadn't thought about it, also whether there was any significance to those 'Caves of the Forgotten'. Ah, so many questions....
