Review of chapter "A wager won." from AndreaH
Review:
Hi, I finally made myself a login here. As Legolas has received permission to let his warriors train, perhaps they can also start innovating for Solstice celebrations too? I have to say the idea of Gimli being approached however discreetly by ellyth is pretty darn funny! Could we have a snippet of conversation from Gimli regarding that, please...
Comments from author:
Hi! The beginning of the next chapter is already under-way and they will, most certainly, begin innovating!

As for a snippet of Gimli - I think that is a very good idea...

Review:
Yay!

I'm glad to know that the Ithilen crew at least will be partying as normal.
Comments from author:
They will, most definitely, get to party; it will be good for all of them!

Review of chapter "A Silvan Prince" from Kalliza
Review:
It's been a while since the last update, but I only recently was able to read this. I just want to say, I think it's wonderful. Really, I think the entire series is wonderful, I just finished re-reading the whole thing.

I hope they all get to meet Haldir again soon. I want to see how he gets along with Tindome, and especially how he gets along with Haldirin. Also, Tindome meeting the previous elleth which housed the Key could be fascinating ... and possibly awkward.

Hope for another update soon!
Comments from author:
Thank you so much. You'll be pleased to hear that the next chapter is currently with my beta and should be here in the next few days.

Haldir is not going to turn up in this one - but he will certainly be in the next long one, although there might be a short in between, but the first part of that long story in already on my hard-drive.

Review of chapter "A Silvan Prince" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
As with all your stories, I am really enjoying this one!

I love the Legolas/Ithil pairing and find Haldirin wanting Legolas' niece rather adorable :) I do like that the elves are patient and not at all dramatic about not being with the one they love.

Sam teaching Frodo's adopted son to cook is sweet :)
Comments from author:
I'm really happy that you are enjoying it. as for the elves being laid back about not being with the ones they love - they've got plenty of time! Getting married within only six years, or less, of meeting his future wife has doubtless earned Rumil the reputation of being hasty and hot-headed!

I'm really glad that you liked the idea of Sam teaching the two youngsters the proper, hobbit, way to cook.

Review of chapter "There's no place like home..." from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
Nice. I'm glad that it's not just 'woo, happy days just cuz we're in the Undying Lands'! I like how Legolas thinks of home, and hope he finds some nice woods over there!
Comments from author:
It is quite difficult to imagine that it is all sweetness and sitting around singing, I decided. Even if it is a long time since they were burning boats and fighting on the dock-sides. Settling in must surely take time, I think.

Review of chapter "Getting to know you..." from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
I am so happy that you are exploring life across the sea! Not enough fics deal with that and its interesting concept to ponder.
Comments from author:
I have spent quite a while thinking about it... possibly more than Tolkien as he seems to sort of stop as soon as anyone gets into a ship!

Review of chapter "A Silvan Prince" from Shawn
Review:
So, I read your notes at the end,
"Telerin Elves are the main group of sea Elves mostly living here in Valinor.
Silvan Elves are the wood Elves who almost all lived in Middle Earth.
Noldorin Elves are the High Elves."

and I wonder if you're planning on fitting the Vanyar and Ingwe into this story as well, especially considering Ingwe's claim to the High Kingship of all elves.

I love this series, btw. I'm always really happy to see the announcement of a new chapter in my inbox!

Thanks!

Shawn
Comments from author:
Thanks Shawn. It is really good to know that people are enjoying these stories about Dawn, still.

As for whether the Vanyar and Ingwë will feature - not in this particular story, but he may turn up later if he has any direct bearing on what is happening to Tindómë and the rest of them.

He is actually easier to cope with than the Noldorin High Kingship in stories of this era. As it is literally Ages since Finwë was killed by Melkor he might well have been returned from Mandos Halls - but then Fingolfin and Fingon have also both been High Kings of the Noldor, and Gil-galad, and all might be now alive in Valinor. Although they would, presumably, all return to princedom if Finwë has returned (I am expecting that Fëanor is unlikely to be released).

And those Noldor who remained in Valinor had Finarfin; he would, presumably, be willing to return the crown to Finwë, but how would he feel about any claim from a returned Fingolfin - or a returned Gil-Galad? Any ideas are welcome!

Oh, I can't wait to read about the dinner party!

I am so massively digging this story. This continues to be my favorite series ever.

Review of chapter "There's no place like home..." from EllandrahSylver
Review:
It's been awhile between updates in this 'verse, but this was worth the wait. Tindome has become very wise...

I thought the issue with Rumil and Orophin's mother was especially well done. What mother, upon being confronted with her fully grown boys that she remembered as children, and their wives, would not immediately begin trying to figure out if the women her babies had married were good enough for them? *grins*
Comments from author:
Thank you.

I do have an excuse for the four weeks since the last update... we've had Christmas, New Year and my birthday in there...

I'm really pleased that you think the issue with Rumil and Orophin's mother is realistic - I just couldn't see everything being, well, plain sailing!

Review of chapter "Getting to know you..." from starshinedown
Review:
Hooray! A new addition to the adventures of Tindome! I was so excited to see this update while I was on vacation, and anxious to get home so I could read it.

You know, I hadn't given much thought to how young Rumil and Orophin were when their parents died. What a learning experience for them all, to get to know each other as adults and parents/children and individuals. It's a good thing they are immortals in the undying land. :)
Comments from author:
Thank you. Yes there will be a good deal of adjustments to be made - they really are very like European immigrants to America in the nineteenth century, having family or friends who have gone ahead, but that they may not have seen for some years, if at all. And there are a lot of people who have been there for a lot longer...
