You have no idea how much this story has been a joy to me. Each chapter just gets better and I find myself rereading each one, something I know that I will continue to do in the future. But, this chapter. There are no words. I can't decide which part I like best. Glorfindel has always been one of my favorite characters, and this chapter did not help that in the least. And I love Elrond's interactions with his elflings. It's so striking to me, especially considering what he went through himself. Your portrayal of him just makes me like him that much more. Thank you so much for sharing this.
