bryn! I just read the first chapter of this and it looks wonderful! I'm just worried since the last update was so long ago - will this be updated? I try not to read unfinished stories, so I'm trying to put off reading this. Still, my curiosity got to me enough to make me read Ch. 1. I'm going to continue to hold off, especially knowing the angst I'm in for with this story. But I'm hoping - begging? - that you update soon, or at least that this story will be finished some day (soon?)!

OMG it's the lost Silmaril. The one that Morgoth did not find. Ye Gods! What will this do to Legolas? No, she cannot let Aragorn have it. Ai, congratulations. Now I'm in a tizzy about this story. *Must read*. I hope you have some sort of lawyer???

I absolutely love the way that you personify the sea in the beginning. It's interesting to think that it would become a burden for the sea to hold in her waters. But, you explained it as the stone needed light. I never thought of that either, that the sea would be a dark place for the starlight. Much too dark in the depths of the sea for a Simlaril to rest.

That would be hard for the sea to give it up, burden as though it may be. Besides the fact that bringing such a heavy stone (would it be heavy? Tolkien never says) would be difficult, the stone would also probably not want to be given up, unlike the ring, the stone is not evil. Hm.

I love Muriel's reaoning on her papa's business doing well. so like a child, selfishly thinking of oneself.

The sea angrily foamed around her ankles as she picked it up? The sea wished to relinquish its treasure, but not completely. It still wished to hold on to it.

Oh no! How sad! The little girl dies...yet it could not be otherwise. You know, you never think about (Well, obviously, you did! ;) what the Silmaril might do to mortals, as they were somewhat scarce in the War of the Jewels. But a child especially, vulnerable to the delight and fascination of the jewel, the pure jewel, would surely never be able to take their eyes off of it.

Hm, a thought just occured to me. If the light of the Silmaril does that to a child, can you imagine what would have happened if the two trees had still been around when men awoke in middle earth?

So, Bitaliel will go to Elessar. THAT ought to prove interesting.

Question: why does she show no fascination at the stone? Tegiron at least showed a little, but she showed nothing.

Anyway, wonderful beginning! Where ever did you come up with this idea? I wish that I had thought of it!
