|The Stronghold by Aldwen||1 Review(s)|
|Renata||Reviewed Chapter: 11 on 4/2/2021|
I hate to nitpick what was otherwise another lovely chapter, but I admit to some confusion. It read as though Gil-Estel rose in the WEST??? Isn't that rather backwards? The sun, the moon, all the other stars rise in the East.
Author Reply: Yes. :) I went from the assumption that Gil-Estel is different from other stars and was set in the sky by the Valar. The Moon and the Sun too rose in the West for the first time. There is also this quote from the published Silmarillion: 'And when this new star was seen at evening, Maedhros spoke to Maglor his brother, and he said: 'Surely that is a Silmaril that shines now in the West?''
