Labadal and Túrin  by Dreamflower 4 Review(s)
ElfiqueReviewed Chapter: 4 on 2/14/2011
What an interesting concept, I'm very glad you've explored it here as I love these little drabbles so far. They make a great insight!

Author Reply: Thank you! I have one more yet to go.

I have enjoyed exploring these two. I am hoping perhaps it might inspire someone more knowledgeable than I about the First Age to a fuller treatment of this friendship!

Alas that such friendship gifts should each be needfully returned, and yet that last one should prove in many ways the saddest, even though it might be given as the child saw fit.

Author Reply: Well, of course, Turin is still young enough to not quite get the distinction between "mine and thine". He sees something that he thinks his friend will like and wants him to have it.

And yes, the knife was a very sad gift.

Turin, of course, is too small to understand how an overly generous gift humbles the recipient...

Author Reply: He is, of course. And at his age, a gift of a shiny pebble or a gift of an expensive tool would carry equal value. If it is pretty and he likes it, it would make a good present.

Dear Dreamflower: This was sweet, and a good break from the previous chapters, as they were rather sad. Of course, I should get used to that, as Turin's whole life was sad, but this chapter was a nice change of pace. I look forward to more chapters: thank you. Sincerely, Darkover

Author Reply: Thank you! I only have one more, which I hope to post sometime today when I get home from work!

I'm very glad you've been enjoying these. I really wish that others would also explore this one bright spot in Turin's story!
