I really love this story. Terrific characterization of Gil, Gildor and Erestor, and I love the interaction among the three of them. It's very entertaining how Celeborn and especially Galadriel are strongly present although they never get a line or show their faces.
I am such a sucker for Elrond and Elros.
Thanks so much, Oshun :) Elrond and Elros weren't even supposed to be in this, it was just meant as a bit of banter in the kitchen, nothing more. Then it started wandering all over and finally I realised where the story fitted in my Balar arc. I do love writing those three together, they have their own special 'fit'.

The poignancy of the last paragraph was perfect but before it we have "THey can't chop vegetables they're royal." what a hoot.. This story is like quicksivler..it changes moods so swiftly and subtly that they are past you almost before you noitce.
Throughout all the homey and at times reflective, easy details make it feel like someone telling you the story from just yesterday. Beautifully done
Hi there :) Thanks so much - that it feels 'like someone telling you the story from just yesterday' really made me smile. That's a lovely compliment and quite the nicest thing you could have said. I love writing these guys and keep wandering back there. This just started out as a bit of banter in the kitchen and grew into something bigger almost before I realised it.
