Winter Came Earlier

If this is "just a bit of fluff," I'd love to see what you'd do if you were trying to create a serious, layered, meaningful story! I thought this was simply stunning. The first line and the title hint at the despair that Elladan senses, the winter coming early (from the undying Elvish perspective) of his sister and Aragorn and what that means for his own fate. His tendency toward sickness and his succumbing on the trail home must inevitably remind him that, with a single choice, he could also be edging on death and the uncertainty that brings.

But at the same time, this is one of your stories, and there is humor and lightness and sweetness that, like the final paragraph, keep those more ponderous ideas from overtaking the story.

Really, really lovely. I was adding Yule stories to MPTT today and realized you'd posted your own, so I wouldn't get to read it while adding it to the archive, and so treated myself as the last one of the day. I'm glad that I did.

You are really something else! What a fabulous review! It seriously makes it worth the effort. I rarely check here once I have posted, because it's not like I get a lot of reviews. Wow! Thank you. I rarely write an LotR-based story these days, so it was fun to try again. It was my introduction to the fandom after all and all I wrote for a couple of years.

 

Thanks again! So grateful and so happy you liked it.

Sorry, I am late saying thank you. I don't post here often or get a lot of reviews, so this one was an unexpected pleasure.

This was such a delight to read! I love your characterisations and how Elladan's heritage influences his well-being in this particular manner, but also to see Glorfindel as such an considerate and caring partner.

Thank you so much. You are so kind to comment here! I realized that I was posting this on Tolkien's birthday and it is my first LotR fic in ages--I tend to stick to Silmarillion-centered stories, but it was LotR that originally brought me to where I am today (obsessing over Tolkien's legendarium!).

Happy Professor's Birthday to you!
