Reviews For "The House of a Friend" & other drabbles
Oh, so nice!
Thank you very much, Ellynn!
Very nice set of drabbles, Himring! They hang together well, and in an economy of words, speak clearly to a strong friendship. This last was poignant.
Thank you very much!
I'm glad that they work as a sequence--and especially that that last one works. The last one was the one I was most anxious about!
You can say/evoke so much with so few words.
An ability I've always craved but never had...:-)
I love these...:-)
Thank you very much! I'm happy you find them evocative.
The drabble sequence is quite a new form for me, really (although some of my pieces have always been fairly short).
These are lovely. I love the references to the momentuousness of etching the Star of Fëanor on the Doors of Moria, the obsidian and the "Elvish flaw".
Thank you very much! I'm glad those work for you!
Ooh! I like this.
Thank you and thank you for letting me know!
I enjoyed being there at the moment of the making of the inscription on the Doors of Durin. You've suggested much about the relationship of elf and dwarf, in few words.
Thank you, Elfscribe!
Most of Celebrimbor's relationships were rather fraught, one way or the other, but I like to think that in Narvi he had a true friend.
Aww! I love this. I’ve always loved the fact that the star of Fëanor was on that door. It was a big influence on the way I have imagined a lot of elements in my personal canon for my stories. It cuts directly across the viewpoint of those who like to imagine that Celebrimbor spent his life hating that he was a descendant of Fëanor or ashamed of his heritage. It also is a big neon sign for other readers who who have little to no interest in the backstory to The Lord of the Rings
Thank you very much, Oshun!
I'm ashamed to say that it needed Zdenka to point out to me how significant the choice of Celebrimbor to include the Star on the Doors of Moria is. And there is also that lovely cadence to Gandalf saying: "And the Star of the House of Feanor"--he doesn't comment otherwise just then, but it makes me think of that other passage where he speaks of his longing to use the Palantir to perceive Feanor at work...
