Title: Chapter 1

Curufin is so complex. I love that about him! Which is what draws me to him as a character.

Curufin really didn't have his own identity. His life, successes and failures were modelled after and measured against Feanor's accomplishments. 

He really put such a lot of pressure on himself which is quite heartbreaking. 

And you conveyed this in a way that had me riveted. 

Thank you for sharing.



Author's Response:

He's fascinating indeed - I wouldn't go as far as to say that he has no identity - I think he definetly has his own self which is far from being only a copycat -  but it is true that he struggles to find and define it (and thus himself), precisely because, as you rightly said, everything he belives in (or wants to believe in) stemmed from his idealization of Fëanor. 

Thank you for your review, I really appreciate and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Title: Chapter 1

Such a deeply conflicted self, by then.

Curufin, of all people, is the one most likely to be challenged by his image in the mirror and Nargothrond the most critical phase for him.

You really bring that out here! And it is quite wrenching.



Author's Response:

Conflicted, yes! That's the least we can say. And I tend to believe that during the Nargothrond years, this image of himself would keep on evolving and would probbably hardly remain stable afterward.

Thank you very much for your kind review!
