We Were Young Once ~ I  by Conquistadora 8 Review(s)

The suspense is enormous in this chapter. Still I am not sure if I should be angry with Thranduil for making Lindoriel wait or for her for sulking even she knew what she could expect. This waiting is really strange and is so different from Oropher's behaviour in the past. Feelings are so complex here and Thranduil doesn't follow straight and easy path.

Things are getting interesting in Lindon! Thranduil's longing for his father and his taking confort in his old equine friend were touching--more so since Alkarinwe interrupts it so brutally. I'm impressed by how insightfully you write. I assume you are fairly young, being in college, and if so you are writing far beyond your years, IMHO. TF

Thank you. ^_^ I'm nineteen at the moment, which I've noticed has suprised several people. I plan to write something publishable one of these days, so this is my practice forum.

Ah, the hazards of entering into the Noldor political arena (even as a mere stablehand) and being found talented. That he tolerated being made a 'page' says much for his self-control; displaying himself as the pretty golden ornament of a Noldo lord is NOT his style. I was delighted with his change of masters. Now we get to find out more about the Sindar in Doriath?

Each encounter with Alkarwinw brings Thranduil closer to the confrontation that seems enevitable. And the horse, Bragolach, may suffer for his preference as well.

Thranduil may not be moved to wed of even commit, but his reticence is hard for me to endure. Perhaps with persuasion he could be moved to reconsider or at least give Lindoriel some reassurance. A procrastinating male elf he may be, but she deserves more than the occasional smile and kind word!

Thank you for another intriguing chapter.

That was very good. I really love your writing style, it flows so well. The part about keeping their funds under Thranduil's bed was hilarious. Keep writing!

I was so excited to see this update, as that means school is probably going fairly smoothly for least enough to write some! (I hope so!)

You do such an excellent job of portraying Thranduil's inate nobility, which of course affects his views on everything and everyone around him in his current situation. I am glad he was "promoted" by a sensible elf who recognized his worth and at least gave him some bearable, if not honorable, tasks to complete for him. I shudder to think of him being assigned menial tasks such as cleaning, etc. It is a wonder he didn't erupt violently at an earlier date! :-)

I figured word would finally make it back to Lindomiel about his association with that other hussy (she's really not, but hey, I'm on Lin's side!)*g*, but the scene you had of her acting as a handmaiden and hearing such incriminating words from Thranduil's own mouth was exceptionally well-done! You really caught his confusion and guilt and more confusion accurately...and the little quote at the beginning about the apple not falling until it is ripe I thought was definitely appropriate for Thranduil. He is not ready, and I fear his troubles are only beginning; tho', he still doesn't understand exactly how much pain he has caused Lin. How male that when she didn't accept his apology right away, he grew angry and felt like washing his hands of the whole thing! It will probably take 3oo years for those 2 to make things up and at least start talking again! LOL

Very interesting developments indeed, Coriel, and one can only pray you will be able to update soon!

(oh, BTW, I loved Thranduil's reunion with his arch-enemy's horse, and how you kind of slyly inserted that little confrontation. More to come from that one, I'm sure. May I cast my vote now for Thranduil getting the horse eventually?)

Author Reply: School has been bumpier lately, but we're still going full speed ahead. I'm not drowning yet, so I guess that means I'm doing alright!

As always, thank you, thank you, thank you. Your reviews are always great. :D I really hope to have the next chapter up soon, so don't resign yourself to a long wait yet! I'm really looking forward to Oropher coming back and getting this show on the road. ;)
As it is, I'm going to have to run to Mass in a minute . . .

(You may rest assured that I don't intend to leave the matter of the horse at this point.)

You are quite the romance writer! I loved every word of I Return but somehow I am surprised to see how well you are handling romance. Of course this is not your typical romance, is it? It's quite a bit more than that. More of an introspection. A romance on top of a complex life. And it is wonderful. Poor Thranduil. This would be such an impossible time for him and to have this on top of it! Very well done. I imagine midterms are burying you but I am glad you got this out. As always, I am looking forward to the next chapter. Your Thranduil is too perfect.

You're right; I never did consider romance to be my strong point, but I just sit down and write what comes naturally to me. This whole episode was completely sponteneous, believe me. Glad to hear it seems right!

Midterms don't look too scary (Latin's done, and Theology was postponed) until this Thursday, when I have Philosophy and Greek Literature back-to-back. Then Fall Break!!! And what's really great is the fact that we're having Medieval Fest on Halloween weekend after we get back, and my parents are buying me a really nice costume for my birthday! I'm rambling, I know, but I just found out an hour ago and I'm still so excited!

Anyway, I hope to have the next chapter posted within the next few days, so you don't have to wait quite so long. Thanks for reviewing! :)
