Just lovely! With Elrond and Celebrian both taking the moral high-ground, it was inevitable the orcs would take the opportunity to attack the camp. Now what!

Author Reply: they both should know better then to quarrel in front of their children but Celebrķan is not easy going. I could not resist the temptation with the orcs - LOL! Thank you so much for reviewing, Tina. Love Lai

Ouch! Just when Elrond was glad to be home, looks like stuff is still cooking under the surface! Lots of misunderstandings, and poor Glorfindel meant well at the start of this! I guess Elrond feels like shipping all of them to Valinor! ;D Looking forward to more!

Author Reply: you are right. The volcano is ready to erupt. Either he shipps all to Valinor or goes himself. LOL! Even Elrond has his limits and all would do good to remember that from time to time or they will find out the hard way. Thank you so much for reviewing. Lai

Wow! Ok, I'm firmly on Team Elrond here. just seems like the hits keep coming. Interesting to see Celebrian reaction to this accident and the aftermath. I like your portrayal of their relationship though, lol I always wondered if Elven couples experience the usual stresses of child rearing.

Elrond is in a difficult position here, talk about having to tread carefully. Can't wait to see his next move.

Author Reply: why should elven couples not quarrel from time to time, I wondered and Celebrian isn“t easy I guess. Elrond isn“t to envy with all the stress on his back - traumatisized children, many injured and of course Glorfindel and on topp an angry wife - not easy. I“m glad you like the family drama I“m weaving. Next chapter is on the way. Thank you so much for a most appreciated review, eliza. Lai

At least they survived the battle - even if many of them were injured. The trip home will be slow indeed.

Author Reply: Elrond will need time to relax and this very quickly I fear. Thanks for reviewing, Ellie. Lai

Lai, Are you trying to give me a heart attack??? Here I was ready for a "Happy ever after" and now Orcs!! lol Elrond has got to be ready to impale himself on his sword.

I'm almost scared to ask "What next". very emotional, although Celebrian needs a spanking

Author Reply: that was not my intention. LOL! But the happy ever after has to wait and yes, you are right, Elrond is very near a total breakdown. Celebrian would do good to finally support her husband. Thank you so much for your review, eliza. Lai

Oy Vey, talk about having a bad day. Wife mad at you, best friend angry and paralyzed and kids injured and meddling in-laws. lol. great chapter Lai, great chapter. One thing that was really interesting was how even in the midst of all "heck" breaking loose, Elrond still managed to find a light moment with Tinar.

can't wait to see how this plays out.

Author Reply: Elrond has really much on his plate and his wife would do good to support him. Even Elrond has his limits and they would do all good to remember that. I fear how this will play out. LOL! Thank you so much for your lovely review, eliza. Lai

Lai, I am enjoying this story very much. You have woven the direct influence of the Valar, dicey rescues, explosive family dynamics, Glorfindel's paralysis and glory, even the Eagles play their part, into a well written whole. Celebrian's bond with the twins has her sick with worry, no wonder she is angry when Elrond shuts her out; it is good he is having doubts about the matter. Love that bit about "the Lorien lot." BTW will Asfaloth be resurrected by the Valar?

Author Reply: thank you so much for your appreciation. It means a lot to me. I“m always aiming at showing emotion as real as possible and obviously I habe done something righ, but there is good stuff to work with, eh? I have other plans with Asfaloth but something that will maked Glorfindel hopefully also happy in the end. Love and thanks for reviewing, Tina. Lai

Poor Elrond! Everyone is after him for something! I hope he gets a break eventually, but I bet it takes a long while.

Author Reply: I fear you are right, Ellie. There will be a long way home and many perils along the way. Elrond will need a real long holiday after all this. Thanks for your lovely review. Lai

Just found this story but am very glad to see it. I can't wait for the epic blow up between Elrond and Celebrian.

Author Reply: you are welcome. I“m glad you like my story and really appreciate your review. The blow up will come, I promise. LOL! Lai

Poor Celebrian, it appears she needs as much emotional healing as the rest need physical healing.

What a courtesy to the dead companion of Glorfindel. This would mean much to the warrior.

Oh my! :)

Author Reply: much healing needed all around, yes. I understand Celebrķan“s anger, but also Elrond“s argument“s. There is much talk needed. Oh my, ideed. LOL! Thank you for your lovely review, shirebound. Lai
