Title: Chapter 1

That is very interesting! I'm not sure I have read a first encounter between Beren and Luthien before that seemed so convincing to me. It is difficult to write Luthien--and Beren, too--and you do it well.



Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I had a reasonably clear image of Lúthien in my head from the outset and I knew what I wanted to do with her, but Beren took longer to come to me; he's a bit of a cipher, I think perhaps to some extent intentionally so. I'm very happy to hear that my Beren is working for folks.

Title: Chapter 1

I'm extremely glad you posted the story. As I mentioned in our email discussion, the story does not become any less rewarding in reading or re-reading (and I did that several times by now).

I still love the sharp focus on mood and images, too, as well as the mixture of whimsy, realism and the romanticized remnants of the original story, which makes for a fascinating whole - all the more impressive considering it's your first Tolkien-based fic in a long time.



Author's Response:

Thank you so much once again for your kind words. Mood and images are things that I pay special attention to trying to develop, so I'm immensely glad it worked on those levels and tonally. I'm definitely considering returning to Doriath at some point in the future.
