The Lure of Taur na Rhun  by Marnie 5 Review(s)
GalathilReviewed Chapter: Prologue on 2/14/2021
Hi Matnie I enjoyed your story Ernil i Duremmen. I enjoyed this story as well. Its not often there are stories

about the Ents and Celeborn as a child. You can see why he is Celeborn the Wise.


Author Reply: There aren't many Ent stories at all, are there :) But I noticed when Celeborn and Galadriel met Treebeard in LotR there was a sense that they'd known each other for ages and ages, and I rather ran with that idea. Also I'm very glad you can see why he's called 'the wise.' That's actually one of the main reasons why I wrote him. He doesn't really seem very wise in LotR, and I wanted to show how he got that name.
Thank you!

I loved the dialogue you wrote for Celeborn and Treebeard. You have this way of inserting the exposition part so very discreetly. Thanks for sharing this.

Author Reply: Thank you! Treebeard was great fun to write, though this was him in his rather more hasty youth :)

Oh, I love Treebeard! You write him wonderfully. He is so Entish :)

Celeborn is so young here - so alive and curious and full of adventure. You have shown us clearly his attachment to Middle-Earth - his ties and love for it. His whole life he lived there and always there was more to see and to love. I still think of him as an untame lion. Very nice (and my entry is coming; it will be late but is not forgotten!).

This is a charming encounter, thank you. :) I always adore your Celeborn, and your Treebeard was magnificently characterized.

Amazing. This is incredibly beautiful. Your words are elegant and moving, and your description make it all but palpable. I am frankly in awe at this moment. Celeborn, so often ignored or disregarded shows true majesty in this story. Treebeard is lovely! I laughed with happiness, you made him seem so real. Thank you so much for giving this to the world.
