Pilgrim Through This Barren Land  by Narya 5 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: Prologue on 10/7/2017
I think this is perhaps one of the truest stories about late Third Age Maglor I've read yet. Love the relationships revealed here, and want to hear more of the story behind the Arkenstone.

Author Reply: Wow, what a compliment! Thank you, Larner. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I wrote it as a one-shot, but since I posted it I've been imagining a few ways it could continue, so we'll see...

Thinking this is a stand-alone but still a great little read. You do a lot in not too many words with these characters. Great job. Will keep an eye out for further non-ficlet sized pieces from you. Thanks for your hard work on this one.

Author Reply: You're more than welcome - and thank you for reading and taking the time to review! It was intended as a standalone, but I do plan to write more Maglor tales in future.

I really liked this take on Maglor, I don't think I've ever seen him characterised like that. It was wonderfully written, I could follow Gandalf's thoughts so well, and I especially liked how you conveyed his affection for Elves in general and Maglor in particular. Just brilliant!

Author Reply: Oh, thank you! :-) I didn't actually expect him to turn out quite like this - he was a lot angrier than I'd initially planned, but it felt like the natural way for him to react. I'm really pleased you enjoyed it.

This is a lovely, wistful-yet-hopeful scene. What an intriguing meeting.

Author Reply: Thank you, shirebound. When I had the idea, it wouldn't leave me alone. I'm glad you liked it.

Oh, lovely! I so like stories in which Maglor shows up!

Author Reply: Thank you Soledad, I'm really pleased you enjoyed it. I love Maglor stories too :-)
