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

First of all, really cool that Fiondil chose the name Kelly for Celebrian! It's the perfect one to use for a "modern day Elves" story! (I used it in a drabble for B2MEM once.)

I love the idea of Ron becoming a psychologist. That would be the perfect role for him, and give him a very needed specialty.

So, Glorfindel's story about the twins was a tall tale, huh? It was fun anyway!

On the topic of the choice of "Kelly"...

I was speculating that she might have turned out to be Bree or Bri, simply because I know a couple of them IRL. (One is "Sabrina" and the other is "Brianna".)

Kelly does make a certain sense, when I think about it.

I'm not happy about Glorfindel telling tales that are not true to impress the youngsters may they be mortal or elven. He is undermining their trust when it comes out that he just made it up. Vorondur's sons will not appreciate being lied to and the mortal children once they figure out it was just made up will not listen to any warnings the elves might give them when it is really serious.

Author Reply: No, it's not an ideal situation, but I think that Glorfindel in his current state is possibly irritated with many things. He also might not have seen it as 'telling tales to impress', rather a way to give them a shock. I agree that this isn't an ideal situation, but then Glorfindel is obviously not himself.

Thank you so much for reviewing!

Oh my. I'm not liking the sounds of Glorfindel's capacity for deception... Wonder if it's something he's developed over the years of creating a number of personas, or is actually part of the fading.

Author Reply: Hi Lyana, I suspect that the capacity for deception is something which has developed over the years. Also remember that he's spent centuries mingling with human beings and we are by nature a deceptive bunch. A lot of it may have rubbed off on him.

Thank you for reviewing!

The comments reminiscent of Tom Bombadil or Treebeard seemed a bit overblown in this situation, I thought, and I'd love to know the mechanics of Legolas's trick with the rock. Mind magic or suggestion?

At least they are getting things in order to support Glorfindel as well as they can.

Author Reply: I think the mechanics of Legolas's trick with the rock are locked away firmly in Arthu's mind.I wish we still had him here to ask, believe me. I and the other two ladies greatly enjoyed our discussions with Arthur on all things Tolkien. It's taken a long time for us to even contemplate publishing his chapters, albeit incomplete, of his unfinished work.

Yes, I think that the others are now keeping Glorfindel grounded and that's a good thing. Him going 'fey' an unpredictable on everyone is probably not the best situation!

Thank you for reviewing!

So glad to have any updates to this story. Glad Elrond seems to be finding a new way. Love the name Kelly for his wife.

Author Reply: Thank you, we three ladies appreciate that greatly. Elrond certainly will be an asset if he gets trained, that's for sure! Oddly, I can't see Celebrian as a Kelly either; maybe she'll grow into her name!

Thank you again for reviewing. I don't always have the time to answer the reviews, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate that you do.
