|This is cute. I can imagine the glee Glorfindel felt at this charade and also the embarrassment of some household members on calling Elrond 'Ada'. |
Author Reply: Yikes! I happened to be re-reading some earlier stories for fun and saw that I never responded to your review, obsidianj. My bad. I'm glad you enjoyed this. Thanks for letting me know. I appreciate it very much and sorry for the delay in responding.

|This sounds like the kind of story that the elves will be teasing Aragorn with years later! The small child who didn't give up in the face of a targeted campaign from a household of elves and managed to last for two months... That tells much about just how stubborn Aragorn was, and that same inability to give in made later it possible for him to get his throne. Great story, Fiondil.|
Author Reply: They would tease him, too, though they would've had to wait until after Elrond revealed the truth to him. I'm glad you enjoyed this tale, someone. I appreciate you letting me know. Thanks.

|How delightful. It was such a drastic change for little Estel, but he came through with flying colors. As he grew older, he would once again find out about his real father and who he was. Elrond is an excellent choice as "step- father"'|
Author Reply: Hi Tari. Yes, Estel made the transition well enough and Elrond is a great "step-father". Thanks for commenting. It's much appreciated.

|what a lovely idea of "ada" Elrond! Glorfindel at least surely enjoyed it. Again a little story to be cherished. Liked it very much. Thank you, Fiondil. Lai|

|I read this over on Teitho and thought it was yours.|
I am not sure how I would have handled this, but it seems that total immersion would work. It would probably have been eaisier had Aragorn been either a little younger or old enough to understand that he had to be hidden. Glorfindel, of course would have delighted in calling Elrond 'Ada'!
Author Reply: I think total immersion was the only real solution. Aragorn was just old enough to know something was not as it should be but too young to be able to sit him down and reason with him. And Glorfindel probably got a real kick out of the whole thing. *grin* Thanks for reviewing, Lynda. I really appreciate it.

|Unfortunately, a necessary transition. Poor child. Love the childish pronunciations!|
Author Reply: Yes, very necessary and I'm glad you liked the childish pronunciations. Thanks for taking the time to read and review, Larner. I appreciate it.

|I'm sure there were weeks, perhaps even months, before Glorfindel left off the custom. Cheeky little Elf!|
Nicely done, though terribly sad for the Dowager Queen.
I like each of the characters as you've drawn them. Especially Elrond. I'm glad he spent time near Estel's side. How could the little one call him Ada if he didn't act like one?
Author Reply: I imagine Glorfindel was the last to give up calling Elrond "Ada". Cheeky little Elf, indeed. LOL! I'm glad you liked the story and the way I drew each of the characters, especially Elrond. Thanks for letting me know, Agape. I really appreciate it.

|This is hilarious but also so sad. I feel for Gilraen most of all. |
Author Reply: It had to be very hard on Gilraen. Thanks for commenting, Harrowcat. I appreciate it.

|What a clever idea! This not only brings a new sense of self -- and family -- to Aragorn, but, I am certain, great delight and humor to Imladris for a very long time to come.|
Author Reply: it was a clever idea, wasn't it? *grin* Thanks, Shirebound. I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
