Title: Chapter 1

This is perfect! The way the light starts to change it all, Fingon's reaction, the first time that he really notices the changes in his father. That Arakano was present is always a plus for me. :)

Author's Response: I can't resist at least name-dropping Arakno! :D So glad you enjoyed this, thank you for commenting!

Title: Chapter 1

Your words make it easy for me to imagine what the first sunrise could have looked like.  Very vivid imagery. 



Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad it works :)

Title: Chapter 1

Lovely.  You captured Fingon's amazement perfectly.  (And wouldn't the first sunrise be an amazing - and unforgettable - thing to see?)

Author's Response:

Thank you so much!

(Considering how amazingly beautiful even normal sunrises tend to be, the first sunrise ever was probably mind-blowing!)

Title: Chapter 1

This is one of the most beautiful desriptions I've read of a Silmarillion landscape, plus all the characters described up in so few words. Marvelous work. Congratulations.

Author's Response:

Wow, I'm glad you can't see me now - I'm blushing like mad. Thank you so much for your kind words!

Title: Chapter 1

You know I loved this the first time I read it, and I fell for it all over again, and now I'm sitting here with goosebumps down my arms, and it is your fault. Which is not at all a bad thing.

The description is as glorious as would befit the first sunrise, and I love the way you let the reader glimpse at all the characters, the backstories and implications their behaviour contains. Marvellously done, you. 



Author's Response: *blushes* Thank you very much! I feel like I kind of cheated, mentioning most people so briefly... but I suppose if I'd wanted to sketch everyone out properly, it would no longer be a short story...
