Elf Academy 4 - The Unfinished Tales  by Fiondil 6 Review(s)

I am sorry you've been poorly. Thank you for keeping up the postings! I really look forward to them. Somehow it's comforting to think they're there, waiting, even if I don't have time to read them right when they are posted.

I love the Elves surrounding Loren, and the quip about the teddy bear and the hand-holding! Very hard!

If a "cure" for fading is to surround oneself with Mortals, then I can see Loren's problem in the way the Elves keep him walled off, even if it is at his request.

I wonder if one of Ron's therapies will be to have Loren adopt a family (sort of like the Big Brother/Big Sister program) and immerse himself in their lives...

Probably not, but the picture of him sitting down on a picnic blanket being swarmed by delighted little kids -- even if it's uncomfortable and unfamiliar at first because he's so long out of practice -- tickles my fancy.

Poor Glorfindel. It can be so tiresome to go through all those tests. Although, I was always fascinated by the technology and pestered the technicians with questions that took my mind off the procedures. Had to laugh at the nurse asking for the date of birth. I hope they will find out soon that Glorfindel is actually fading and that they can do something about that. I get the feeling that the moment Glorfindel admits to himself that this is what is going on, he will come around.

It would be tiresome going through all of that--hell, it IS tiresome going through it all! Poor Glorfindel!

The Man gave them a skeptical look. “And it takes six of you to see it done?”

Glorfindel leaned over so he could see the Mortal around Elladan. “They’re my security,” he answered.

“Security!” a Woman exclaimed. “You expect someone to come after you with a scalpel or somethin’?”

Glorfindel grinned. “Not that kind of security. They wouldn’t let me bring my teddy bear to hold while undergoing all these stupid tests so they take turns holding my hand.” He paused, flashing everyone a wicked look. “I hold them very hard.”

For a moment there was dead silence all around and then one of the nurses sniggered even as she was drawing blood from another patient and the Man who’d asked the original question started laughing and some of the other Mortals began making rather rude commentary while the Elves just rolled their eyes and shook their heads.

LOL! Too funny, Glorfindel. =)

Yes, Glorfindel in a hospital gown would be quite a sight to see. Interesting to learn if anything shows up from the tests.

Wow, what a morning *that* was! I feel so sorry for poor Glorfi, but I'm sure all of this is necessary to have an Elven baseline to work with - not to mention figuring out Glorfindel's problems. I hope this isn't necessary again anytime soon...*gives Glorfi a big hug* Atto shouldn't have been torturing him like that. Ew. :(

I do hope the elven tests (in the next chapter?) will be easier for our Balrog-slayer!

Tye-melin Atya, nettenyar,
