|Brotherhood by Bodkin||21 Review(s)|
|Jay of Lasgalen||Reviewed Chapter: 11 on 2/1/2007|
|Ahh ... There are so many things I like about this story. The twins standing with Estel, prepared to take the blame - but him not hiding behind them. The wordless communication between the twins - I love moments like that between them! Gilraen's knowledge of the twins that a 'female refuge' won't deter them :>). And I like the simple thought, care and concern that made them repair the pot so quickly.|
Author Reply: How could Estel not be courageous - with the example of the twins and his mother before him? But even so, accepting responsibility is a tough thing for a child his age - and I suspect he is sensitive enough to realise how upset Gilraen is, however well she conceals it.
I don't think the twins need to commune mentally here - they know each other so well that a glance and a gesture are enough to speak volumes! Repairing the pot was good for Estel and Gilraen - and I suspect that as well as posing as carefree sons, the twins sometimes felt quite paternal and very protective towards Estel's mother.
