Labadal and Túrin  by Dreamflower 3 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 1 on 2/14/2011
And the child sees the man and acknowledges the disability, but honors that which is beyond what others probably see as disfigurement.

Author Reply: Exactly. A child's judgement is marred by few preconceptions. Sador is kind and he is interesting. To a young child that's all that really matters.

I like the mood this sets, the flowing rhythm. The present tense works very well here.

Author Reply: Thank you. I did find that Labadal's voice seemed to want to be in present tense, and as that's rare for me, and it's drabbles, I went with it.

Dear Dreamflower: This is an intriguing idea for a fic, and Labadal's "voice" in the first chapter sounds convincing to me. I look forward to the next chapter, and I eagerly await seeing what you will do with this. Sincerely, Darkover

Author Reply: Thank you very much! My normal oeuvre is Third Age and hobbits. This is my first venture into the territory of the First Age, so it is encouraging to hear that I have the voice right.

Every since I first read CoH, I'd been thoroughly taked by this particular section of the story, the only tiny bit of love and brightness in child Turin's life is this lowly servant. I had asked some people for stories about them before, but finally decided if I wanted any, I'd have to write some myself.
