The Seeds of Time  by daw the minstrel 21 Review(s)
elliskaReviewed Chapter: 2 on 3/16/2007
Little Legolas's "I was good" was so cute and I needed it. I agreed with Eilian how sad it was that Legolas knew the song, even when he didn't understand why Fithral was there. Poor little thing. He will understand this concept all too well much sooner than he should.

Ok, the way Fithral died was just awful. I don't see how you could have made that nastier/scarier. But as usual, I loved Eilian's connection with the forest and I thought you showed that really well.

And Eilian and Thranduil are having a very rare moment here--you can really see Lorellin's influence. I almost feel sorrier for him than I do Legolas, seeing how important nana was.

Great chapter. Powerful.

Author Reply: The part about Fithral's death was the reason I decided to rate this PG13. It was about as grim as I could stand to make it. And it's sad that in this case, Eilian's connection with the forest causes him suffering because of the spread of the Shadow.

I had to really think about how Thranduil and Eilian would get along here, and I remembered once writing from Thranduil's pov that things between them grew troubled when Eilian was an adolescent and again when his mother died. So I decided that things were a little better at the time of this story. Nana helped. She helped Thranduil to help Eilian, and she served as someone Eilian wanted to please and drew comfort from.

Thanks for the review, Elliska.
