Comments For Changing Lights
You write Nerdanel really well. She has such a bittersweet life. I'm always so impressed and in awe of Feanor, and the way your Nerdanel always wakes me up to the reality. It adds a much more personal touch to the glory of the Noldor and how their greatest glory came from Feanor but also their greatest sorrow. The sun is supposed to mark the waning of the Elves and that's exactly what it does in Nerdanel's case. She's very strong, and I admire her for moving forward despite her loss.
Very ivocative imagery, going from hope to sorrow. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you. :) I hope it doesn't end at sorrow for poor Nerdanel. She deserves better than that, and I daresay she is stronger than succumbing permanently, too.
I liked this immensely--from the bright, rosy start to the melancholy end. You have such great way of using words to paint pictures, and having seen your work with pictures, I think you're also good with using pictures that inspire words to be written. I really, really like reading about your Fëanorians, particularly your Nerdanel.
Author's Response: Aaw, thanks, you're flattering me. It would be easy to go off writing an essay on a relation between words and pictures for me (in writing I'm usually describing the visuals I get imagining the scene, some sort of 'in-mind cinema', while with the manips I'm trying to get the visuals themselves down in pixels, so your connection isn't even so far off), but that would be beyond the scope of the review. Thanks for liking my Feanorians. Sneaky buggers, aren't they, worming their way into other minds?
An excellent use of the prompt, Elleth! The scene where the smell of fresh wood has faded from the furniture is very striking. Well done :D
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review! I had hoped that that would be a striking scene, so it's good to know that it succeeds (for some people, at least!)
Very evocative, Elleth! The arc these scenes take nicely mirror the arc of a day: sunrise to noon to sunset to moonrise.
Author's Response: Thank you for teh review and the insight - you're right, it might be considered the arc of a day. Incidentally, that thought never crossed my mind while writing. ;)
