A storm indeed. Great chapter Lai, very nice seeing the family dynamics going on here. Boy talk about horrible weather, and definitely didn't see the Eagle coming, definitely a surprise.
Now I wonder if Galadrial and Celeborn are going to step back and let Elrond and Celebrian have a go at each other? lol, if I was Glorifendel I'd stay unconscious for a while

Author Reply: thank you so much, eliza. I´m gald the family emotiond came through believable. For Celeborn and Galadriel holding back I can promise nothing yet. LOL! A good advice to Glorfindel even if Elrond would not agree with you. Thanks for a much appreciated review. Lai

lol, boy the youngin's (Elrond and Celebrian) are having a rough day aren't they.
just goes to show you that no matter how old we get some times our parents still need to set us straight.

Great story Lai, really enjoying the interactions between the entire family.

Author Reply: yes, they have I dread when Elrond learns that Celebrían is at the camp and when she is meeting her husband - huh, much trouble ahead. Wise parents are always needed, regardless the age and race. I´m glad you like my family interactions. It´s great fun to write. Thank you so much for a most appreciated review, eliza. Lai

Just to say how much I am enjoying this story. Lovely to read fiction about the twins when they were young. Great tension between the adult relatives! Looking forward to the next chapter.
Thank you!

Author Reply: I´m happy you are enjoying my story. Elrond and the twins are my favourites and writing about elflings is additional fun when strong emotions are involved. The next chapter is already on the way. Enjoy! Lai

Galadriel is wonderfully wise and strong. Celebrian definitely needs tough love right now so she can help, not harm, everyone's concentration and tasks.

Author Reply: Elrond will need every support he can get and his wife would do good to follow her mother´s advice. Her rejecting attitude is not helping matters. Thanks for a most appreciated review, shirebound. Lai

I can't take much more of the suspense! *frets*

Author Reply: you stand in a long row - I´m hard working on the next chapter but unfortunately there is always this real life...LOL! Thanks for your lovely review, shirebound. Lai

Oh my! That wad almost too much to handle. Is there any hope for Tinar? It seems that this cliff is thirsty for the blood of elves...

Author Reply: oh my I haven´t seen it from this aspect - yes a blood-thirsty cliff. I´m already hard working to rescue our dear Tinár, or is it already too late? Keep some fingernails, dear Ellie, you will need them. Thank you so much for reviewing. Lai

And here comes Celebrían as well! All of Imladris will soon be emptied in this search. It's so sad about Asfaloth. *sniff*

Author Reply: let´s see how well they can handle themselves with all the "brains" on the road. LOL! Yes poor Asfaloth. It will be an additional blow for poor Glorfindel, but I have a little surprise in stock for him. Thank you so much for reviewing, shirebound. Lai

This chapter is a sad study in the powerlessness of those who care very deeply. Help needs to arrive in so many forms in order to assure a positive outcome for all.

Author Reply: you are tight, emotions running high because of this helplessness and that´s more than understandable. They will need all help they can get. Thanks for a most appreciated review, Ellie. Lai

Yea!! the Calvary has arrived. Always enjoy seeing Celeborn, he always seems like a port of calm during a storm. Now as for Galadriel, lol maybe because I have "nosey mother in law" syndrome, Elrond should have told her to "stuff" it. How is it her job to calm her daughter down or to reprimand anyone? this is a married couple fight, I bet she'd skewer anyone who dared to comment on her and Celeborn's relationship.

loving this story Laikwalasse. can't wait for the next chapter

Author Reply: You are right, Celeborn is the right choice to bring some calm in the heated atmosphere. I think we all have "nosey mother in law" syndrom. LOL! But Galadriel is Galadriel, right? And her daughter takes 100% after her as you will see in the next chapter. Elrond will have to make clear his stand; but I have faith in him. His problems with his wife is not her concern. I´m glad you love this story and for every of your reviews. Thank you. Lai

Well, met, Celeborn, indeed. Celeborn The Wise has come prepared. And again, our Balrog Slayer has taken the advice to heart, and given aid without his body leaving the ledge. His first appearance to save Elrohir from the orcs reminded me of the scene in "Fellowship" at the Ford of Bruinen. Frodo sees a figure of blazing light, frightening the wraiths into the river. Gandalf later tells him he has seen Glorfindel with the glory he possesses in the Undying Lands. I also like the image of Galadriel's "traveling clothes". Somehow I can not imagine her in anything but immaculate white, no matter what she is doing!

Author Reply: Elrond has dire need of the reinforcement. I´m glad you liked the scene of Glorfindel helping Elrohir but I haven´t thought of the scene at the "Fellowship", but you are right that´s kind of similar. I could not resist to describe Galadriel in white - anything other is unthinkable. LOL. Thank you so much for your review, demeter d. I really appreciate it. Lai
