Through the Eyes of Maia and Wizard  by Larner 4 Review(s)
PSWReviewed Chapter: 15 on 11/20/2016
Very interesting! Not a conversation I'd ever thought of before -- so many were affected by all that happened...

I love your description of Olorin as being more solid, somehow. I'm sure being forced to live in a body for so long rather than just being able to flit in and out of one at will would definitely have an effect...

Thanks for writing!

Author Reply: The Master indicated that keeping to one form could lead to the Maia losing much of his or her nature, ending with it taking on the nature of the form instead, and I would think this especially true of Gandalf after his long sojourn as an elderly Man. And in trying to keep these challenges to Gandalf's POV, I had to think how Nerdanel would interact with a newly returned Olorin and this is what came of it.

Thank you so!

It would definitely be interesting to see Nerdanel meeting with frodo, especially since frodo is quite a notable artist himself. Also it would bee nice to Nerdanel meeting her "grandson". Hint, hint. ;-)
Btw, Nenya was the ring of water, and vilya was the ring of air.

Author Reply: And I may well write these meetings, Sunny. Certainly Nerdanel and Frodo should find a good deal to appreciate in one another's company.

As for the great rings--well, I've yet to see canon indications of the element for each other than Narya, which we know was the ring of fire. As Elrond's home was in a valley known for the Loudwater and waterfalls, it seemed very likely that Elrond would surround himself with the element with which his ring would have the most harmony. And the Galadrim chose to live high in the air, so thus Vilya has always spoken to me of that element.

Maybe I'm wrong, but then I suppose I will choose to pursue this possible AU.

Oh - this is a great chapter. I do so hope there is more! Wow.

Author Reply: Thank you, Agape. And I suspect this one will be embroidered upon--certainly there's been interest!

Oh, this was lovely! Poor Nerdanel!

Author Reply: Thank you so, Soledad! She is bereft, but has much strength, and deserves such comfort as is offered her, I've always felt!
