“If I choose the Void, I will lose every single memory I ever had. And I can’t lose them.”

Wow! That's really the lynchpin of the whole tale, isn't it? What a concept. What a thought. And what a reason to keep on living.

I hope that RL won't be pounding too hard on you and I look forward to having you return to this tale when you can. It's been excellent to this point.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Thank you so much Erulisse! Yes, that is the sole reason that keeps Maglor on these shores(or at least in my opinion it is). I am very happy you liked the story and even more happy that you decided to comment. I will be back as soon as I can:)

You must be catching up on posting, but it has been delightful to roam in your stories. And having you write about two of my favorite characters, Sian's fabulous Vanimore and Elgalad...it was perfect.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Yes, and I cleaned up the story somewhat, but it still needs some work. I consider all of my fictions a work in progress. Thank you very much for the review. *hugs*



Title: Renacimiento by Oshun
Rated: Mature [ - ]
Summary: Elrond is a charming flirt with a massive crush who is saving himself for a special first time. I never pictured myself writing this one, but felt perversely attracted to it when I read the prompt. The recipient gave me a softer way out, the choice to go with another less controversial pairing. But after consideration, I fell for this one.

The title, Renacimiento is Spanish. I liked the sound of it and had just watched a Spanish TV show about the Renaissance when I needed a name. (Yes, it also means Renassiance). What is wrong with English or even Quenya? I liked all of the multiple meanings my dictionary gave me for the Spanish word: rebirth, revival, renewal, etc. My hero and POV character Maedhros receives all of those things from his encounters with the intrepid young Elrond. Like Elrond is enriched as well.

Thanks to Ignoble Bard for the Beta. He has been with me all the way through this one from the first rough lines to the last touch up. Thank you also to Lilithlessfair, Pandemonium, and Russandol, who painstakingly went over this and offered their suggestions. I am not always fun to Beta, but I do appreciate how lucky I am to have such wonderful writers and friends willing to give me a hand.

I purposely stayed away from all of the SV stories on LC, I wanted to be surprised as I read through them. This pairing, so difficult to pull of, was played like a fine violin in your hands. The obvious never-ending love of Maedhros for his 'Kano, and the bittersweet love that Elrond holds for his own parents and heritage, both come through beautifully here. So, it was worth the wait. You done well!

Tulkas! What a wonderful surprise (although the beard should have given it away). Loved it!

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Thank you. I had just re-read the Silmarilion chapter on the Valar and he struck me. The beard should have been a dead give away, but Elrond was no lost and well, he's seen at least 1 elf with a beard (although I just cannot see it). Posting the last chapter tomorrow.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Glad you caught it! The epilogue made a friend mention that she would love to know the story of how Maglor agreed to sail. I started writing it and got blocked...now I think I have the final plan and hope to get it finished soon. Thanks for reading and always taking time to comment!

A novella of the House of Finwë from the Darkening of Valinor through the end of the First Age.

And what else have ye not lost, cooped here in a narrow land between the mountains and the sea? ...Fair shall the end be, though long and hard shall be the road! Say Farwell to bondage! But say farewell also to ease! Say Farwell to the weak! ... Journey light: but bring with you your swords!

I took advantage of a lull at work to pop into Fairie and see if anything interesting was up to read, and I found gold. I am going to enjoy this story, the first chapter is extremely interesting and I know the others will be equally good. Your Irisse is so flawed and blind that the education of her, Maglor and Glorfindel has a long, long way to go. I look forward to the journey.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Thank-you Erulisse for the review :D I’m ecstatic you decided to check out this story, and more that you enjoyed it :D

“Your Irisse is so flawed and blind that the education of her, Maglor and Glorfindel has a long, long way to go. I look forward to the journey.”

Oh yes it will be! It will be a challenge, and have no small amount of heartbreak (it is the story of the fall of the Noldor and the loss of their innocents), but it should be quite a ride. I hope you will continue to enjoy, and thanks again for the support :D
