Reactions and Reviews
I cannot remember much of it, but I remember liking Elladan and Elrohir in it, and there was mention of the white gem being a "small favor" given to Galadriel by Celebrimbor, which usually makes me squee a lot.
[...]A librarian friend of mine, who is mighty in research-fu, found it for me and printed it on nice paper and bound it up in a little book for me for a birthday a few years back. I need to find the box it's in - I seem to remember that it was a very decent attempt at writing in Tolkien's style, and there was a line of Arwen's that I MELTED over. It was a very RESPECTFUL story, and I am always charmed by courtesy to Professor Tolkien.
