|After I beta-d this, I got to thinking about elves meditating and how nice it would be to have that sort of self-possession. And if I could sit still for more than three minutes, I'd do it! I actually closed my eyes and tried, but I think I need practice or Elven blood.|
And 'grouchy Erestor' reminded me of my son when he was little calling my sister's dog 'grouchy Midnight.'
I thought the ending of this was very touching.

You would feel an overwhleming desire to go jot down notes for your next story! Glad you liked the ending - as I tried to put myself in Gilraen's shoes, I was awed as the sadness I thought she would have felt. She rejoices in being his mother, perhaps, but to have to cast aside her old life and his heritage for this time surely grieved her.

|Awww. Nilmandra, I'm not normally a fluff-aholic but this story really got to me! Especially the little twinge at the end. Lovely, sweet story. And Glorfindel is just as big a teddy bear as ever! |
Author Reply: Glorfindel is just preening at your reply. He thinks he resembles that comment :D. I am glad you liked it. Sometimes we just need a little fluff in our lives.
