Adorable chapters! Love the relationship you show between Estel and Elrond.

So glad you enjoyed it! I love writing about the relationship between Estel and Elrond, especially when Estel is little! Elrond loved Estel as his own son! Thanks so much for reviewing! It is very much appreciated!

But without love in our hearts they are only words and plants, nothing more.

*sigh* Beautiful. I can't tell you how impressed I am with your writing, and the way you unfold a story. Every chapter is a joy.

*blush* Thank you for the very kind words. I am so glad that you have liked it. I just try to put myself in the character's mindset and tell the story from their point of view. Sometimes I get myself into a muddle but that's what the delete button is for! :-) Thanks again for reviewing. It really means a lot to me! :-)

LOL, the kid has gotten the whole of Imladris wrapped around his finger.
Charming story.

I loved the interaction with Gilgilath, seems the horse is the only one who isn't at his mercy.

So glad you liked the story. Yes, Little Estel is quite the charmer! But he and Gilgilath have been together for quite a while and well Gilgilath has plenty of horse sense! LOL! Thank you for reviewing and really glad you liked it!

But for now he could still remain their Estel, bringing hope into their lives. Until all the berry cakes were gone at least.

That's a sweet line. It's easy to see how much the residents of Imladris have come to love Estel.

Again thank you for reviewing! it is as always very much appreciated! I really think that Estel must have brought much life and joy to Imladris. By this time in the Third Age I get the feeling from the Professor's writing that there are not many Elf children being born. Perhaps I'm wrong but that's the feeling I get. So Estel as a lively intelligent child would have brought much life with him and was loved by all the inhabitants of Imladris, though Gilgilath does at times seem to be somewhat immune to his charms! :-) Thanks again!
