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.

Title: Chapter 1

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?”

Aww :D

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!
