Not For Pride Alone  by Zimraphel 7 Review(s)
JacquelineReviewed Chapter: 5 on 6/10/2007
I thoroughly enjoyed this story! I always love to read stories about Glorfindel, but there seems to be so few that are well written! You have a good grasp on the history that a lot of others don't have (alas, including myself) and I can really appreciate that.

I also love your description of the Hobbits and their meeting with Glorfindel. And the part where Glorfindel unfurls his banner gave me goosebumps! I look forward to reading more of your stories!

Zimraphel, I keep reading this over and over for months. I am really lucky to discover your tale of Glorfindel, and sincerely I don't leave reviews every time I find something passable. Your story, especially the end, gives me no less chill and excitement than
"Utulie'n aurŽ! Aiya EldaliŽ ar Atanatari, utulie'n aurŽ! Auta i lomŽ!"
or than
"Hail Ešrendil, of mariners most renowned, the looked for that cometh at unawares, the longed for that cometh beyond hope! Hail Ešrendil, bearer of light before the Sun and Moon! Splendour of the Children of Earth, star in the darkness, jewel in the sunset, radiant in the morning!"
or than
"And all eyes followed his gaze, and behold! upon the foremost ship a great standard broke, and the wind displayed it as she turned towards the Harlond. There flowered a White Tree, and that was for Gondor; but Seven Stars were about it, and a high crown above it, the signs of Elendil that no lord had borne for years beyond count."
Epic and funny at times, just like "The Lord Of The Rings" itself. You are the second best fŽarie story-teller that I know. :)

Ah, yes, glad to see this!

Was wondering as I read if you would include hobbits. Hoorah! You did. Am looking forward to Glorfindel's meeting with them.

I am writing a story in which Glorfindel and certain other elves of Rivendell will have met hobbits before this period in history--the Fallohides, as a matter of fact, as they made their crossing into (is it called Eriador? It is very very late and my brain is barely there) in 1150.

However, I find your version quite believable. I can envision the movements you describe, the tactics and such. Nicely done!

Looking forward to more.

Excellent. Well-written, gripping, brings the little bit I've read on this to vivid life.

Looking forward to more.

Very, very good. I always thought there should be a good fic about this little bit of history, but I lack sufficient courage to write it. I am eagerly waiting for more.
