Grace and Memory  by Larner 5 Review(s)
Kaylee ArafinwielReviewed Chapter: 1 on 7/5/2010
"Faithfulness must grow, even as the Trees must grow." Indeed, and how lucky they are to be given a scion of Telperion's own image! Elros is very wise here, I like how you've portrayed him, Larner, very much. He reminds me of Atar Fiondil's Elros. :) (And since you two are two of my very favourite authors...not without cause...that's a compliment :) )


Author Reply: I thank you very much, Kaylee. I, too, love Fiondil's writing, although I tend to depict the Valar differently, I find. But if any man can be said to have been wise, I do believe it mostly true of Elros Earendilion! Thank you again so!

Well said. Faithfullness is a quality all should display.

Author Reply: Yes, and how true that is in Tolkien's world particularly! Thanks so, Tari.

Great characterization of Elros, who is a priest-king in the best sense of the word here, honoring the powers and not forgetting what they are owed; and remembering both the good and bad of the Eldar.

Looking forward to more!

Author Reply: Yes, the first Priest-King of Numenor, and one who honors his roots fully.

Will be updating twice a week until all five vignettes are posted. Thanks so, Raksha.

I love this little vignette--especially these lines:

"Faithfulness must grow, even as the Tree must grow. It must be nurtured and husbanded. I fear that without such reminders as this our people must fail in the end; and my blessings will ever be on those who are faithful to the Tree and the covenant it symbolizes."

Very well said!

Author Reply: He must have been aghast to see to what many of his descendants came. And faithfulness does need to be nurtured. Thanks so for the feedback, Cairistiona.

I really love Elros' wisdom; his words about faithfullness, Valar and life are so true.
Beautifully done.

Author Reply: I'm so glad you appreciate them. Thank you so, Ellyn. I'll be posting the other vignettes about every three days or so--won't take very long.
