The twins really do need to learn how to control how they share their emotions and such. Hope they talk to Elrond soon. And Elladan, yes, it's hard to ignore those arrogant elves, isn't it? Oh dear, Lindir and this fainting thing...that's not good, I think whatever they all know, they really ought to tell him, keeping it a secret is obviously not doing one bit of good! Oh, Yes, Gildor and Orophin! You do love those almost-unrequited love relationships, don't you?! *grin* Or at least relationships where they're too silly and blind to see how the other one really feels! Just like males though. *grin* Oh dear poor Elladan, torn between two crushes! Or maybe lucky! And Elrohir, those visions and nightmares, he's not in very good shape either, I guess, like Lindir. Orophin! *laughs* Poor thing, the twins, Lalorn and knives, he has his work cut out for him now! And I'm really liking the dream sequences with Haldir and Lindir. If I were Haldir, I'd be confused too, I liked how he asked himself if it was a dream or not at the beginning. It must be difficult for anyone who falls in love with the twins, I'd think they'd all feel a little left out. Or maybe a little overwhelmed at not only getting one twin, but perhaps the second as well. Oh, of course, now that Gildor and Orophin have found each other, Elladan is confused. *grin* I liked the part Orophin said about not spending their time left on Aman in pain and loneliness, he's very smart. I'm not sure, but I think they all over-react sometimes. I mean, youngsters will be youngsters and the adults sometimes add to it when they fuss and worry so much.

The Paths of Lorien is one of my all time favourite Lindir stories and I was happy to read this, the sequel. Orophin is often neglected in the fandom, and I am glad CC found him a mate in Gildor. It was also nice to read more of the exploits of the twins, as CC writes them so well.
