Comments For Flowers in Amber
I really enjoyed this. Loved the characterisations and the descriptions. And I appreciate how "human" your Elrond is. :)
Author's Response: Thank you, Makalaure. I thought a lot about how to depict Elrond in this and was happy with how he turned out. I'm glad you like what I did with the character, such a lovely compliment. I really appreciate your review.
Oh, this was posted for We're sorry Celebrimbor! Yay! I'm glad you gave him a story without torture, angst, and general horribleness.
Author's Response: Yes, that's what I had in mind. I agree that he deserves a little happiness, poor guy.
Yay! You're writing again. I enjoyed this moment before the storm when Elrond meets Celebrimbor, Annatar, and Celebrian and finds nothing to support his suspicions about Annatar. Sweet moment with Celebrimbor.
Author's Response: Thanks for your comments, Elfscribe. I actually wrote this a while back for a swap. Then I saw the Celebrimbor challenge and even though it portends a tragic future, Celebrimbor is happy in it for the most part. :-) I'm glad you enjoyed this one. I had a good time writing the individual characters in this.
It was so much fun sinking into this story and your portrayals not just of the characters and relationships here (and the politics!) but also the everyday life of the Gwaith-i-Mírdain in Eregion. I loved Celebrian's cameo; I don't think I've seen anyone play up "Noldorin interests" before in fic, which is a pity because it works really well, as you've shown. Elrond's voice was wonderfully relatable, and I loved seeing her, Celebrimbor, and Annatar through his eyes.
“See? What’s a little dampness between friends?”
The vision clouded before his eyes and he foolishly took it as a good sign.
... damn it. *WAILS*
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Klose. This was interesting to write because I tried to do a little with the city of Ost-in-Edhil and how it might have been to live in a city exploding with artisans and tons of new, creative ideas. I wrote this for a slash swap but couldn't resist having Celebrian show up as a budding smith. It's always fun to imagine what she might have been like when she was young. I'm so glad you like this, especially Elrond's portrayal. I saw him a particular way for this story and I'm glad that came through. "The vision clouded before his eyes and he foolishly took it as a good sign. ... damn it. *WAILS*" I know, right? Poor Elrond!
