Summary: drabble - 100 words Haldir is amazed by who he meets in the Hall

Reviewed by: Raksha the Demon -- Score: 3

Poor confused Haldir - landing in the wrong hall of heroes after a very heroic death. Still, I think he would have enjoyed a quick round of drinks. And I liked the Eorling's welcome to the Elf. Intriguing and original (that is, as original as any fanfic can be) - nicely done and rather refreshing for an LOTR afterlife piece.

[This post contains spoilers.] A well-written movie!verse drabble in which the spirits of those who fought and died together arrive in the afterlife together. I very much liked the notion of the shared comradeship evident in this drabble that the dead Rohirrim welcome even strangers and wish Haldir had stayed for one drink, even if his place was elsewhere. Lovely writing.

A movie-verse drabble: Haldir finds himself in unexpected company! A very interesting thought--it's quite possible his paths might have crossed those of the Men who died alongside him, as each made the journey to their respective places.

In entering the Halls of Mandos, Haldir finds things aren't as he'd anticipated. Perhaps this once a mistake might have been made.... Nice.

Left me chuckling, even though I'm more book-verse than otherwise.
