The Princess and the Horse Lord

Ch. 25: Galadriel’s Mirror

Arwen's speech about not wanting to live a half life of dreams and memories is lovely.  Galadriel is a wise and non-ethereal figure.  You have developed the Elvish family far more thoroughly than Lothieiel's family.  They are far more interesting and, dare I say, more human.

Ch. 25: Galadriel’s Mirror

Thank you so much for the kind words Bardess. Two points on the elves seeming "more human": 1) the problem with a long novel, especially if it is one of the first ones, is it hopefully will get better as one moves along, which I hope, in this case, will include the characterizations getting better; 2) I've been doing a lot of work in the Silmarillion lately and the elves there seem more human to me than the men in LOTR. Lastly, it still is a WIP so I hope that I can strengthen Lothíriel's family as I go forward (and when I do some polishing on the early parts). Thanks for sticking with me on this one. Your comments are always so useful. I'm glad you liked Galadriel—she is tough. Very easy to fall into a parody of either her strengths or weaknesses. I wanted to show a bit of what I see of both without doing that.
