The Rose In The Fisted Glove

Jael,

What a great story! To see Thanduil as a young warrior, with his trusty squire to comfort him on the eve of battle, is wonderfully tender and sweet. To see the aftermath of the battle, and Thranduil's realization of the changes to come for him and his kingdom is heartbreatking. This is one of my favorites of your stories and I'm thrilled to see it posted here.

Mike

Thank you, Bard!  It certainly does add some nuances to the interactions between the two of them in my other stories.

This story marks the first time I worked with a very special beta reader, whom I would like to thank.  Wink

I would also like to thank 'Galion,' who stubbornly refused to allow me to turn him into merely a figure of fun as I wrote him.  It will be apparant that I am one of the few hopeless Galion fangirls in existence. Laugh out loud

Hi Jael -
what I loved most about this story was your utterly convincing portrayal of Thranduil and Galion as both married men and believable same-sex lovers. For most of history people lived and enjoyed such arrangements (which is why I don't think slash in Tolkien fanfic necessarily requires the readers to take a step away from canon ;-)). Great dialogues and a wonderful relaxed atmosphere of friendship for a first-time sexual encounter.
