Oh yeah. "Even the damn horse glowed." Too funny. And so like the Haldir I've come to know (and love) in fanfiction. I also love Glorfindel and his attitude; it's very believable to me that he would feel that way.

I have always admired Alex's writing, and she has so many good stories to choose from, it is like visiting a library, but this one has always been one of my favourites! Grumpy, stubborn Haldir, who cannot abide a happy Glorfindel, learns a lesson the hard way. Chock full of one-liners and innuendo, I find myself chuckling, if not laughing out loud each time I read it. Some stories just stick in your mind, and for me, this is one of them. It leaves me smiling and happy; a silly, funny, laughable, loveable story that I enjoy reading over and over. Glorfindel has good reason for his happiness and even Haldir cannot gainsay it - a whimsical, humorous Aesop-like fable -- pure delight.

"Lord Elrond would not spit on Thranduil if he were on fire" ... You know, I've heard a variation of that line in deep East Texas parlance, but it was hilarious imagining it from the mind of an elf. In fact, Haldir's "voice" is very amusing overall. I love the dry humour you've given him, and his progression. Very nice characterization, which is a trick in such a short piece.
