This was nicely done. Children are not too conspicous in Tolkien's fiction and not very proeminent in the fanfic I have read, except, occasionally for Elrond, and yet so many other characters had tough childhoods that deserve to be brought to light. This story was understated and poignant at the same time. Poor Ereinion.
Thank you, Talullah! I'm glad you liked the story. :) I enjoy writing Tolkien's characters as children; it seems endlessly interesting to me to explore what early experiences might have made them into the characters we see in the books. Also, because I work with troubled children in real life, I tend to see situations, like Ereinion's, in how they might have impacted a child.
Thanks again for reading and taking the time to comment!
