Title: Tuor Comes to Gondolin

nice. (there are two 'that' s in the third sentence...)

i like the contrast between 'valorous heart and mighty purpose' and 'he grinned' heheheh

Title: Tuor Comes to Gondolin

As I said at AO3, I loved this fic.

It's that awkward/sweet moment when you realize you probably are falling in love with somebody...

And your Tuor sounds gorgeous-no wonder Idril is attracted to him.

 



Author's Response:

Thank you so much for commenting here (I like to think of this as my home base~). I would like to write a longer story about them someday. Thanks so much for reading.

Title: Tuor Comes to Gondolin

Just copying my comment across from AO3:

Oh, this is nice, just the fic to give one a warm and fuzzy feeling on a grey morning, Oshun!
I like that glimpse of Tuor surrounded by Voronwe and his Falathrim friends.
And I like how she reminds him that she has known hardship herself and wasn't always the princess surrounded by luxury.
"I insist we consider ourselves to be equals" - what a generous and sweet thing to say.
And what a lovely ending!
Thank you very much for writing this for me!



Author's Response:

Thanks again, Himring, for providing me the opportunity. I am so happy that you liked it!

Title: Tuor Comes to Gondolin

I always like your characters and Idril comes off as so real and sweet in this. How could she help but notice the handsome, heroic Tuor. I especially like the bit about his raggedy whiskers. :-) But of course the best part is how their shared tragic pasts make them able to bond and find happiness at last with each other.

Author's Response:

Thanks, sweetie, for commenting! I really appreciate you reading it so late at night. You are very generous with me. I think they make a great couple and I enjoy that, although not without a lot of pain and suffering, they more or less get a happy ending! Yay! Thanks again.

Title: Tuor Comes to Gondolin

I don't often find Idril fics--there don't seem to be too many.

this was lovely. I like how observant yet self-aware she is. She seems very confident and comfortable with herself.

Tuor sounds adorable from your description. 

I'd love to see the follow up to this, as their relationship progresses.

Title: Tuor Comes to Gondolin

Awww, this was so lovely and sweet! I like your Idril. She knows what she wants and is not going to stand by and wait to be wooed. And her rebuke to Tuor reminds us as well how much she deserves this happiness.

And your Tuor is very, very cute. (Although I personally have a penchant for men with beards! :D)



Author's Response:

Awww thanks!

And your Tuor is very, very cute. (Although I personally have a penchant for men with beards! :D)

Somehow, I got it into my head that I had a reference that Tuor shaved. I might have just imagined that or extrapolated from the Numenoreans having scanty beards or none canon. Please do not tell me that is fanon! I will be embarrassed. Personally, I am not a great fan of beards (Bobby has a nice beard, however--but he is exceptionally good-looking also). I am glad you did not reject my version of Tuor because of the beard question.

Tuor, the cute guy raised by Elves, gets even better as he grows older in Gondolin, becoming "mighty in stature and in mind" (The Silm.). You will have to excuse me, I am very silly this morning.

Thanks for noticing that I just keep cranking out those bios (it's a pleasure, in general!). Speaking of this particular storyline. I seem to recall you wanted to write a bio of Voronwe? I really adore his role in this story and can see him being an awesome candidate for a bio by you.
