Through the Eyes of Maia and Wizard  by Larner 3 Review(s)
PSWReviewed Chapter: 9 on 11/17/2016
Interesting! Yes, the whole Aradhel has always been .. odd. Troubling. It was very interesting to hear the thoughts of a Maia about the whole situation...

Author Reply: It was a challenge to find a means of tying the two White Ladies together in such a manner, but I think the whole turned out well.

Aredhel deserved far better than she got, I always felt. It was interesting to think on her life as if through Olorin's memories of her.

I was always impressed with Gandalf's compassion and understanding for Éowyn, considering how women in Tolkien's books are usually treated. And the comparison with Aredhel is interesting.

Author Reply: Gandalf appears to have compassion for everyone, so I'm certain he would have foreseen how hurt she would be when Aragorn came her way while heading for the Paths of the Dead. And when Tolkien imagined two White Ladies, it appeared to beg for comparison! Thanks so!

The comparison between the two White Ladies is very intersting.I am loving the drables.LOL Galathil

Author Reply: Thank you so very much! How at times Gandalf must have found such comparisons and contrasts springing to mind as he found himself meeting and comparing those dwelling within Middle Earth to those he'd known when he dwelt in Aman as the Maia Olorin.

(Technically this isn't a drabble, which is usually a hundred words or some multiple of a hundred words long, by the way, but I appreciate the praise, of course. I've certainly written my share of drabbles, ficlets, and short stories as well as novellas and novels and even a couple of epics over the last few years!)
