|A Case of Mistaken Identity by Conquistadora||2 Review(s)|
|Adrianne||Reviewed Chapter: 1 on 4/13/2007|
|Very glad to see you quoting from 'Morgoth's Ring' one of my favorite resourses when it comes to researching the Nature of Elves. Anyone who writes fanfic needs to read 'Laws and Customs Among the Eldar' and though these pertain mostly to the Noldor, I do not doubt that they were true to some extent amongst the other race of the Elves as well. |
By the way, my very favorite section of this book is "Part Four, Athrabeth Finrod Ah Andreth" or The Debate of Finrod and Andreth. Excellent, excellent piece of work and very, very poignant.
Definitely. I wish I could assign "Laws and Customs" as penitential reading for those who have offended them. :P
Ah, yes, the Finrod and Andreth dialogue . . . :)

|Thank you, thank you, thank you. YES. Finally, a site i can log as having true Tolkien basis to offset all those who claim that there is slash, smut, and other disgustingly distasteful junk rampant in LOTR and associated works. There are many crass, vulgar and simply bigoted people in the world who enjoy the perversion of such a wonderful story. Fanfiction is repusively rampant (please excuse the "matching phrases" as it were) with such trash. Thank you so much for creating this story - the support for your argument in undeniable, and I support you 100% in this view. Thank you so much for writing this. |
Glad to lay it out straight for you!
For myself, I have quite had it with all the slash clogging the web out there (just trying to avoid it!), and yes, you have described it very aptly. >_< SoA is better than most, and I must confess that HASA fell several levels in my estimation for the slash it hosts. I've sent this bit to them, so we'll see if they let it in.
