Title: Chapter 1

Short and simple and very sweet :) I love how you make use of little details to bring the story and the characters to life. Nerd-geek-scholar Maitimo is wonderful, too :)



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and commenting!

I'm glad you enjoyed this little scene and nerd-Maitimo!

Title: Chapter 1

Lovely! And so much in character! I love how visual it is: the vines,  Maedhros' concentration, the flexed toes. And of course it is a page turner he is reading!



Author's Response:

Thank you! I'm glad you felt it was very visual. Because I wanted to show both--Fingon who is so happy to finally be able to watch Maedhros just being Maedhros again and Maedhros who is practically devouring the book!

Title: Chapter 1

What a cool idea. I like to think that Nelyo would devour the history of ME, which would make him a "saint" patron of Tolkien geeks ;) Well crafted!



Author's Response:

Dawn already made him pretty bookish in her Felak'verse: according to her, he did a lot of the theoretical research for Feanor's projects and has written a book classifying Valinorean flowers. But I guess it was I who turned him to a real geek! Why not--we can use an elven patron, can't we?

Thank you very much for reading and commenting!

Title: Chapter 1

I always like stories where First Age characters learn about the events of LotR :D

Your Fingon is so sweet! Do you tire of hearing me say that in every review? :P I love how well he knew Maedhros and how he prepared for the time he'd be released from Mandos, even if he wasn't sure when or if it'd happen.

Fingon may not know about hobbits, but Elrond sure does ;)



Author's Response:

You can tell me that you like my Fingon as often as you like--I promise to be pleased as Punch every time!

I haven't actually made up my mind whether Fingon was re-embodied in time to meet Frodo and Bilbo (or Sam). But of course Elrond could tell Maedhros all about them, yes!

I really love the direction that you are taking the two of them.  They do make the perfect couple.

Author's Response:

Thank you very much! I'm happy they come across that way to you. (They've certainly had a long wait.)

Title: Chapter 1

Thank you so much! This is so much fun--thinking about Maedhros leaving the halls of Mandos and pursuing the history of the ti me he missed. Of course, Fingon would have to be there looking after the entire process. Thanks again!



Author's Response:

I'm  very glad you liked it!

Catching up with the history of the Third Age is not quite as emotionally hazardous as a trip to the ruins of Formenos, but I'm sure Fingon would want to look after the process anyway!

(And I very much doubt whether anybody who reads this is not already going to be a fan of your bios--they will all know where to find them, but as you'd mentioned you'd heard from people who hadn't a clue where to look on the site, I thought I'd do my bit.)
