Labadal and Túrin  by Dreamflower 4 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 2 on 2/14/2011
And their mutual grief drags them apart rather than bringing them together. And the little boy begins to see himself standing more alone than with others. I feel for Labadal.

Author Reply: Yes, because Morwen is the sort to hold all her feelings close to herself and will not share her grief, and Hurin, being a man of action, considers revenge the only outlet for his own grief. And so little Turin is left to find consolation where he can. But at least he does have one person he can turn to, whether others consider it suitable or not.

"In my own rough arms I hold him"

A very poetic line, that. This is haunting in its simplicity.

Author Reply: Thank you very much. I am trying to keep in mind that Labadal is a simple man, which is, perhaps, why he is capable of comforting poor little Turin.

Oh, this is so heart-breaking. :(
Beautiful drabble.

Author Reply: It's such a heart-breaking story. I think, if it were not for this little glimpse of Turin's childhood, I would not care nearly so much for the rest of his story, for as he grows older and harder, it's easy to see not only why, but the tragedy of this sweet child losing his innocence so young.

I don't remember your writing Silm stories before; but you should do it more often. This series is lovely and sad; and sheds some light on the evolution of poor Turin. That family almost seems doomed from the start.

Author Reply: I never have. This is my very first one, and it is the only time I've had any urge to do so, but there is just something about Child Turin that captures my attention.

That family almost seems doomed from the start.

They do, don't they? Interesting that much of this part of the story is BEFORE Hurin is captured and cursed by the Enemy...
