Title: Pop Science and the Annoying Neighbor

Now THIS is a side of Cirdan I never could have imagined!  I'm still laughing.

I've long admired your work and I'm taking your advice to write more reviews (which I can now, because I'm a member!) 

I love this one!

 

Cee Cee

Title: Pop Science and the Annoying Neighbor

You must have given your frisky little cousin some very wet and sloppy kisses to have stimulated enough obsessive thoughts about you to send him trotting across the most perilous wasteland in Arda right into the very jaws of Melkor to rescue your traitorous arse from the cliffs of Thangorodrim.”

 

PRICELESS!!!

 

This is brilliant.

Title: Pop Science and the Annoying Neighbor

Oh, god, that's hilarious!  Círdan as a rambling oldster is a scream:  "Círdan sighed, one of those tiresome sighs of the Unbegotten when they want one to know that they think they are faced with mentally deficient younger sons of the Eldar"  AHAHAHAHA!

I haven't read The Science of Kissing but I can vouch for Ms. Kirshenbaum as a top-rate science writer, so I have no doubt her sources are sound.   Sheril used to write for Science Blogs, and I first made her acquaintance there when we had a pleasant chat about holothurin (a kind of chemical classified as a cardiac glycosides - digitalis is another) in sea cucumbers.  We then periodically commented on one another's blogs.  Very intelligent young woman.

So Círdan had best watch his saucy remarks about the science! ;^)



Author's Response:

Glad you enjoyed Cirdan. He is a cross between my current landlady and one of my great uncle (long deceased). Oh, I ran across a review of Kirshenbaum's Sience of Kissing while I was trying to think of a topic for this story. I will trust you on the science of it (actually, like Maedhros, I would like to read it. There has been interesting research on nature and causes of human attraction).

Cirdan is pulling everyone's leg on all sides and is not to be taken seriously. He just loves to rile people up.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

I think I'd personally consider that a candidate for a Worst Kiss prize as well as a Best Kiss prize (although I imagine you could win only in one category at a time!). But each to his own, Cirdan!


Poor dear Fingon! Never mind, Fingon, he'll go away soon.

I know! Fingon is so good, he just wants Maedhros to be happy. Well, hardly orginal but whatever. Works for a lot of people!

Thanks for reading! You are very kind!

This is both adorable and a real hoot. I love the curmudgeonly Cirdan and his opinion of Maedhros's reading choices. His teasing Fingon with the Legolas story is a highlight as is the "Prince Valiant" line. And this:

"The kiss had everything that anyone could ever want from a kiss. It engaged the heart, inflamed the senses, brought forward all of the tenderness and warmth of a life of lasting love, of shared victories and horrors, estrangements and reconciliations, all of which had combined to enable them to come out of the other end of the tunnel and reunite in Valinor."

made me melt. I know you prefer to write long but even your ficlets are full of warmth and heart.



Author's Response:

Awww! What a lovely review for this story. I'll just say, 'thank you,' nicely. You are too good to me and thank you for reading it the first time and around and probably weed out dozens of typos--I do not even remember any more. Thank you so very much. I had fun writing it. Painless as one of these ever is.

Very funny, Oshun.  This totally cracked me up.  I'd say Cirdan had the last laugh after barging in on your boys in flagrante delicto.  (Wall sex -- how delicious!  lol)



Author's Response:

Thanks so much for reading this and commenting!

I think Círdan really enjoys torturing them. He expects that Maedhros will remain relentlessly polite and Fingon will try to protect him and try to remain calm, until he finally cracks, which Círdan knows he always will.

What is it about wall sex? I guess the desperation that will not allow the participants to walk even a room or two away to make love in comfort that makes it seem so very hot.

Oh, Fingon, you're no fun! I would love to hear about Maedhros' first kiss. 



Author's Response:

Hey! Thanks for reading! I will tell you another day, when Fingon is not around and feeling fragile!
