The Sons of Thunder

Ch. 5: Helcaraxe

This is getting better and better. Poor Aragorn - torn between his family and his friends!

You won't be able to update quickly enough for me - I hope you are poised over your keyboard this very minute...

Helcaraxe- the frozen wastes crossed by the Noldor in the Silmarillion (I have no idea how to put umlauts on letters on a Mac!!)

Ch. 5: Helcaraxe

I think I may be in love with your Gimli.

"for a moment, he felt the song of the Dwarf. It brushed his mind lightly, a sensation of the deep fires of earth, and then it was gone."

- just exquisite phrasing. And then this:

"He was a figure of patience, of stone, feet planted firmly on the good earth, his clever, subtle hand on the haft of his axe"

- it's just wonderful realisation of the character. The conversation he and Legolas have, about loyalty, about friendship, about overcoming prejudices, really brought a lump to my throat - and I do like the way you have them both use Arod as a proxy to avoid explicitly talking about how they feel about their friendship! Very neat!

Another chapter full of cracking dialogue and heightened emotion. Thank you!

Must pause here to echo Azalais' righteous praise of your Gimli.  It's a wonderful characterization: my favorite aspect of this story so far.
