Thanks for the comments, Freyalyn and DKP!
Is Calannae going to cause more trouble?...
Where would a writer be without conflict?
. . . regarding the ever-perfect and timeless memory of the Elves, and how it is both blessing and curse.
It would certainly be harder to forgive, if one could not forget. How many of the Eldar went West because of their version of post-traumatic stress disorder?
I'm glad you like my hypothesis regarding the closed minds of Dwarves. It was one of those times when the puzzle pieces seem to fall neatly together. The implications for the reknown Gimli-Legolas friendship are interesting.
The encouragement is much appreciated, and will help the next chapter along.
