|What a blessing, to study the stars under such a teacher!|
Author Reply: So very true! I have been meaning to write some about Estel and Glorfindel as his teacher, just haven't gotten around to it yet!

|Oh. Oh. Oh. To borrow a word from the drabble, this was beautiful. Reading it left an ache in my throat. The good kind, that is. I found myself right there with them, lying on the hard surface of the balcony (would they have put a blanket or rug down, or would they be warriors, immune to the hard chill they were lying on?), staring up at the stars. |
We used to do much the same when the not-so-wee hobbits were little, driving a way out of the city when a meteor shower was predicted, out into the dark of a country lane, where we'd park the car and lie down on the hood to watch for bright streaks in the sky.

Yea! So happy you loved it. I do try to capture what attempts to a little gem of an image or moment or emotion with these drabbles. I find it really satisfying. As it is a 100 word drabble I could not mention it but I do imagine a blanket for Estel (much to his disgruntlement, he would rather be the tough warrior), but Gilraen would have Glorfindel's hide if Estel comes down with so much as a sniffle so the blanket it is, but it is a tough manly blanket! Of that you can be sure! :-))
