I’m doing a lot of bird feeding, Ziggy! And foxes, there are some around and I always feel sorry for them, too. Don’t tell anyone, but there is one poor rat that I feed too

Same here- snowed all day. My shetland pony SO resentful about being outside! My TB happy as a lark- charging about the filed, bucking and rearing. But poor little birds- feed them if you can.

Woke up to a blizzard and about 5 inches of snow, of course it’s drifted so it’s not really that deep

We had a good covering of snow yesterday and it’s still snowing. Really fed up with winter now. As Spiced says, thought, it’s forecast to clear soon.

Reviews For Melethryn Legolas

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: March 06, 2018 6:49 · For: Dragon Fever
OMG! Do these guys ever give up?! They are really not ready to give up their newfound wealth that easily, are they!

What they would stoop to!

Planning to tarnish Legolas and Elwin's reputation as well as smear their private affairs all over Esgaroth. :(

I for one feel sorry for the girls, Nissa and Meril. Their the ones who will be the most affected, humiliated and hopefully not the laughing stock of the town.

They had such hope that spending time with the Elves would grant them a little respite from their dreary lives and give them a taste of what the world can offer outside their existence. Maybe move them to broaden their horizons sometime in the future.

I think they've sort of come to realize that their's no future for them with Legolas and Elwin, because of the obvious. But hey! They can dream and enjoy themselves while it lasts. :/

I can't wait to see if Audun can pull this latest idea off! Hopefully it will all fall apart for him. :)

Author's Response:

Our heroes do seem in big trouble here.  Yes, I do feel sorry for Nissa and Meril, who dream of something better in their lives. But the story isn't over yet!  Thanks, as always, Gabriel for your lovely comments. I'm glad you continue to enjoy this story.

Hi Elfscribe! I hope this review finds you well and sorry about not being more frequent with the reviewing. Had a lot going on. :)

Gimli! So great to see Gimli in this.

You can't deceive Elves and Dwarves, even if you try to use their past grievances as a cover. Yes they've had their fair share of quibbles on both sides, but when it comes down to it Elves and Dwarves are a fierce and formidable force when united against a common enemy.

How Audun thought he could easily dupe these two races is beyond me. Maybe Men in their greed, seem to lose their ability to reason or think intelligently. Especially this Council. They were REALLY not thinking, so caught up in counting their coin I think. Tut! tut!.

I did enjoy watching Legolas and Gimli keep up the pretence that they were arguing over past resentments only to turn the heat on the Men, who stared back at them like deer caught in headlights. Lol.

Glad to see there's still an accord there. :)

Author's Response:

I really had fun imagining this backstory where Legolas and Gimli meet before the Council of Elrond and end up allies.  You're right, the Lakemen are not likely to end up well in all this.  :-D

Just when I thought Elwin's taking of Legolas was a shock. Then Legolas retaliates with a rather kinky seduction of his own, with the use of a knife and some oil. Interesting.

They are so well matched. :)

Author's Response:

Obviously Legolas believes turnabout is fair play.  lol.  The backstory to Legolas' kinky play with the knife is another element in Swords & Seduction.  (Not that I'm pimping that fic, lol!!)   Glad you feel they are well-matched. Thanks for your comments! I'm glad you're still enjoying the story.

OMG! Elfscribe!

I believe I am as shocked at Elwin as Legolas is. ;)

Poor Legolas. It took him a while to collect himself.

But there was something I noticed, Elfscribe. Why does Elwin think if he appears out of control he will lose Legolas. What is that all about?

Author's Response:

Elwin was being a bit of a devil there. lol.  Elwin thinks that if he shows Legolas how very deeply he's in love that he'll scare him off.  Haven't you ever been in that situation with a new relationship? Where you want to stay cool and not just fling yourself at your new lover for fear he'll get nervous and back away?  I've often found that the way to keep someone else interested is to appear a bit aloof -- at least until one is sure of the relationship. The dance of courtship. Anyhow, that's what Elwin believes about Legolas.

Hi there, Elfscribe!

Listen, I have to apologize for taking so long to review and for also, getting your AU more than likely mixed up with others I've read. I am so sorry for that. It was only when you highlighted it that I remembered Aragorn at the beginning and Melindi from 'Ohtarnil.' Feeling a tad sheepish.

Anyway, Legolas and Elwin are incorrigible! A night full of unrivaled passion, left smarting, big time, only to get themselves tangled up inside a bath. Lol.

I really liked the last part of the chapter. Talagan having a heart to heart conversation with Legolas, which didn't start out all that promising but ended in a mutual understanding of sorts. And Talagan realizing the Prince wasn't half as obstinate as he seemed.

And Legolas is afraid of his father?

Also Elfscribe, I keep reading that Legolas is the youngest in his family, I would love to know more about this. I'm sure I haven't read anything about any brothers or sisters Legolas may have, before. :)

Author's Response:

No need to apologize for anything. it's interesting, isn't it, how many, many different ways Legolas has been portrayed. It's like he's the image we can project of ourselves or imaginative selves onto. I remember enjoying the hell out of writing that bath scene and getting them stuck. Such boys!  I came to like Talagan myself in this story, as soon as he had some backstory. There's a lot more of him and Thranduil in the story I wrote after this one --- Swords & Seduction. I did love their chat where Legolas basically says, I'm an adult, Talagan. Treat me as such. In my 'verse, Legolas has a difficult relationship with his father and Legolas is the younger son. Since Tolkien doesn't mention Thranduil having other children, usually it's assumed Legolas was the only child, but it would be easy enough to imagine siblings. Thanks as ever for commenting.

What on earth is going on in the Lake? A bit of Dragons revenge I would wager. Or maybe even a curse come to seek out its victims. Even in death Smaug is a problem;

And everyone within the Inn is having their greatest desires played out in their dreams.

It was a surprise to learn that Talagan desires King Thranduil. ;) Poor Meril she's going to be bitterly dissapointed when she learns Legolas' Lembas bread is buttered on the other side and that she has no hope in securing an Elf Prince as a future husband. :/

The plot thickens. Love this story!

Author's Response:

Oh yes, that spooky mist coming out of the Lake.  Totally a horror scene in the making. As for Talagan, um yeah, he has a huge unrequited thing for Thranduil. There's more about it in my story Swords & Seduction, which I wrote just after this one.  I loved your phrase, "Legolas' lembas bread is buttered on the other side." LOL.  Although it's not apparent in this story, in my 'verse, Legolas is bi. You might remember that opening scene in Ohtarnil with Melindi, with whom he had a long and torrid affair years earlier. He talks about that in the scene with Goran in the cellar about how he finds himself drawn to beauty no matter what housing it takes. But yeah, I suspect you're right that Meril is likely to be disappointed. I'm happy you are enjoying the story!  Thanks again for your comments. Much appreciated.

Some pretty steamy Elf sex in this chapter, Elfscribe! ;)

I like how Elwin is Legolas' equal and how you have not made him at all submissive.

This Goran character, will he ever let up in pursuing Legolas. And what on earth is he planning to do now, that Legolas has made it quite clear he is definitely not interested.

He's a bit of a worry, getting off on on the Elves' rather exuberant love making. I don't feel at all sorry for him. That's what he gets for trying to force himself on someone. :/

Author's Response:

Yeah, steamy for sure.  Glad you like Elwin's dynamic with Legolas. I did want them on an equal footing. Right, Goran, obviously he's not going away anytime soon. Cheers!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: January 21, 2018 5:20 · For: Dragon Fever
You know Goran's lucky Legolas' response wasn't worse, he could quite easily have taken it to within an inch of Goran's life if he had wanted.

I was a little worried that Goran was actually going to act on the idea to capture Legolas and keep him a sexual slave. That would not have gone down too well between the Lakemen and the Elves, A *Diplomatic incident* of sorts. :/

Loving this story Elfscribe! :)

Author's Response:

Legolas showed a lot of restraint, but then killing the son of the Council head wouldn't have been a good plan either -- as you point out.  I know I keep going to fan history, but at the time I wrote this, it was common for authors to write Legolas as a weepy weakling unable to defend himself against an attack like this. (Believe it or not.) I never saw him that way. He's a skilled warrior for heaven's sake. So, I wrote him the way I see him. Thanks for your comments, Gabriel. It's fun for me to revisit this old story.

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: January 18, 2018 11:33 · For: Dragon Fever
I'm rather happy nothing has happened as yet between Legolas and Goran. Phew!
I can relax now. lol

I'm glad Legolas bested Goran in the darts competition. With all his bravado he completely underestimated the Prince. Legolas employing his warrior attributes to totally blindside him.

The revelation that the head of the Merchants Guild and also head of the Town Council are stealing from Elven generosity and then selling it on to feather their own beds is quite a worry.

I hope no one gets hurt. Especially Legolas and Elwin. But those I truly feel for are Meril and Nissa who have no idea of their father's vice.

Love this story Elfscribe! :)

Author's Response:

The dart game was so much fun to write. As I recall, (it's been awhile). I had to research dart games and then since nothing was quite working -- I needed it to be very quick and easy to explain -- I made up the rules. Ah yes, the plot thickens with the Merchants Guild. I wrote this way before the Hobbit movies came out, so it's fun to see some similar threads in the movie about the councils' corruption.  I'm pleased you're enjoying this one. As ever, thanks for your comments.

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: January 17, 2018 4:55 · For: Dragon Fever
Its so good to see Legolas and Elwin finally showing their feelings for one another.

But I am still very suspicious of Goran and his motives. If his fantasies of Legolas do come about through his maneuverings then how is Elwin going to feel, especially if he believes Legolas bedded Goran, which I doubt very much, but still, unless Elwin is completely unaffected by Legolas taking someone else to bed. I don't know!

Listen to me. I think I've just made more drama of this than the next chapter will. Lol

Great little story Elfscribe!

Author's Response:

LOL!  You've definitely created some drama there. You'll have to read on to see what happens. Glad you're enjoying it!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: January 14, 2018 11:30 · For: Dragon Fever
I get the feeling Meril and Nissa don't get to see many Elves.

They're so starry-eyed. Like they've earmarked Legolas and Elwin as their future husbands. lol

I wonder about Goran. He has me slightly suspicious of his intentions. :/

This is intriguing Elfscribe. It has me wondering what's going to happen next. I love that about your stories. :)

Author's Response:

Meril and Nissa both have an eye for lovely men, for sure, and so does Goran.lol. Glad to know you're intrigued. 

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: January 12, 2018 11:24 · For: Dragon Fever
Legolas is quite rebellious in this. Mind you with a father like Thranduil who seems to have extended his control of his realm to include his youngest son, its no wonder Legolas revels in his freedom.

Its no surprise that Smaug was everyone's bane in life as in death. Fancy still being able to guard his horde from beyond the grave.

I love how the children paddle out excitedly to greet the newcomers, crying, "Elves! Elves from Mirkwood!" Elves seem to be seen by mortal's as wonderous and magical. :)

Lastly, I just wanted to ask, if you'd be interested in reviewing a story I have posted. The first since joining Faerie. For I would really value your comments and any advice you may have. :)

Author's Response:

Yes, this version of Legolas is still quite young and chaffing under his father's control. I really enjoyed writing Smaug is this story and also envisioning Laketown.  Thanks for letting me know about your story. I enjoyed reading it and left a few comments. I'm glad to see you writing.  Cheers!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: January 11, 2018 6:54 · For: Dragon Fever
'Ohtarnil' as Legolas has discovered can be both a blessing and a curse.

I can't help but feel that Legolas has fallen some for Aragorn, more than the pledge itself.

I understand that warriors need and deserve some happiness in times of war. It is one way of lifting and keeping morale alive.

But Legolas now realizes it can also be tinged with sadness. For as soon as the war is over Aragorn will return to his life and love. In which Legolas is not a part of. :(

Author's Response:

I think you're right that Legolas has fallen for Aragorn, and Aragorn likewise. Will definitely make things hard after the war. I don't know why I made my Legolas so unlucky in love. I think it was very common at the time I wrote this --early in the LOTR fandom--for authors to write tragic Aragorn and Legolas 'cause of Arwen and all. Lots of authors handled that in different ways. This story was the second fanfiction I ever wrote. Hopefully it holds up okay. Thanks!  You're a sweetie.

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 20, 2017 11:32 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
That was a great and meaningful end to an awesome first story.
I'm glad Aragorn sorted the guilt he had for thinking he was betraying Arwen.
That its something that is understood by the Elves and sometimes a necessary in wartime, especially to keep spirits high.
A great read! Onto the next one. :D

Author's Response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. Thanks so much for all your comments!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 20, 2017 11:10 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
Oh no! Poor Elwin, poor Leggie.
I think their relationship, although filled with wonderful moments and times together, seemed to be doomed from the start.
With Thranduil's vehement disapproval of the whole affair and Legolas's inability to give of himself as a result of this and for several other reasons as well, it just seems such a heartbreaking situation. Sniff.

Author's Response:

Really sad, I know. Poor Legolas. The full reason why he couldn't love Elwin with his whole heart is revealed in Dragon Fever. Thanks!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 18, 2017 8:49 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
Wow! Aragorn and Legolas act like two starving wolves with each other. Legolas who hasn't been with another male since Elwin forty-fifty years ago, and Aragorn who's new to all this but is desperate to assuage his need. Is he falling in love with Legolas or is in fact a little in love with him or is it just purely a release? Because he seems so starstruck by Legolas.

Now I know Arwen isn't even in this story, but I can't help but feel for her in all this. Remaining chaste while she awaits her future husbands return. I wonder what would happen if she ever found out?
A great read! :)

Author's Response:

Oh, I think Aragorn falls for Legolas bigtime in this, and vice versa. I never dealt with how Arwen took this but in this verse she would have understood. Thanks for lovely reviews!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 18, 2017 7:39 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
There's a part in this chapter where Legolas soothes a dying stag, before breathing in its soul; very interesting. I like reading about Elves and their affinity with nature and their so called "magic" such are the legendary secrets of the Elves.
Oh, and Legolas and Aragorn seriously need to get a room. :D

Author's Response:

I was inspired to write the scene with the stag by stories of American Indian hunters thanking a deer for giving its life so they could eat. Figured elves would be in tune with nature as well. And yes, lol, Aragorn and Legolas need to get a room.

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 16, 2017 13:30 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
Aah! I like seeing Legolas in action, such an awesome warrior and having Aragorn come to his aid, wielding Anduril, classic!
I must say I like your Legolas you've made him such a strong character a {badass} of sorts without detracting from the beauty of his Elvish roots.
I hope that all makes sense. :)

Author's Response:

Yep, I do loves me some badass warrior Leggy. So glad you're enjoying the story. Thanks for commenting!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 16, 2017 7:54 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
Haldir's a bit of a sleaze isn't he. It's good to see the Elves aren't all perfect and it adds a bit of drama.
There were a couple of parts I liked in this chapter, but my favourite was the dream Legolas had of Elwin playing his fiddle, telling him it is okay with him that Legolas moves on, or at least finds companionship with another, while Elwin awaits rebirth. Even if Leggie is still torn up about losing him. Sniff.
Really sad. :(

Author's Response:

Heh, yeah Haldir's a sleeze in this one. I've read so many since then with Haldir as hero that this is sort of an anomaly. Glad you like the dream about Elwin. It gets sadder.

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 15, 2017 9:09 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
I'm going to say it, you're really good at Het.
And what a surprise Melindi has a husband, poor Leggie, it's like the tables are turned.
I completely understand Aragorn being irritated, when Legolas has the freedom to pursue other people and Aragorn must deny himself for the love of Arwen. I think that would peeve anyone off in the same circumstances.
Loving it! :)

Author's Response:

Glad you liked the het. lol. There's a bit here and there in other fics, but for the most part I went full slash. Glad you're enjoying the fic!  Thanks!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 15, 2017 7:21 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
I must say I think I'll start calling Legolas, Mr Smooth, he certainly knows how to pleasure everyone and rather adeptly.
I also felt for Melindi, feeling a little used by Legolas, like she is the stand in, until Legolas finds someone else, although everyone knows, Legolas would not do that, he just fell in love. Yet I still felt sad for her.
And there it is. The very thing I was just mentioning. Legolas is attracted to Aragorn! Wow!
This is a very interesting concept.
Can't wait to read on. :D

Author's Response:

Mr. Smooth. LOL! Howver, as you'll see, Melindi gets her licks in, so to speak.  So many people started in fandom with writing Legolas/Aragorn. There just seemed chemistry between them in the movies.  When I was writing this, there was a real trend in the fandom (still out there) to write Legolas as weak, wimpy, weepy. He was a warrior for heaven's sake! I wrote him here as bi and anything but weak. Thanks for the comment!

Name: Gabriel (Signed) · Date: July 15, 2017 6:47 · For: Ohtarnil: A Warrior Love
This is your first LOTR fic? Wow! This is good! I feel like I'm watching the movie, except with some extra scenes to it.
I know Aragorn is trying to remain chaste for Arwen's sake, but please he seriously needs to find some outlet for all that pent up desire, otherwise I feel for Arwen on their wedding night.
Who doesn't love Legolas. His lover Elwin; I would seriously like to know more and read more on him. If there is other fic's with him in it, I must have missed it. I remember seeing something about him dying, poor Leggy. I'll endeavour to read that one. :D

Author's Response:

Ah yes, this was the first fanfic I ever wrote, back in fall of 2002. Seems like ancient history now. My inspiration was trying to come up with a "canon" way for Aragorn to have a relationship with Legolas that would still fit with his love for Arwen. Elwin was a creation to give Legolas a tragic backstory, who then took on a life of his own. When I first wrote this, a number of people wanted more about him. So, I wrote Dragon Fever, which talks about the beginning of Legolas' and Elwin's relationship, and then I wrote Time Enough for Love, which takes place after Dragon Fever but before the events in Ohtarnil. Thanks for comments!

I'm on an anti-spam crusade!

I love your predatory twins - so sexy, and so powerful. I think they're exactly what Legolas needs, although I hold onto the hope that he'll be reunited with Elwin in Valinor...and healed from the wound Smaug dealt him.

Author's Response:

So, I charged over here to smite the spammer and discovered amidst my 5 spam reviews, this delightful one.  Thank you!!  You really made me feel better about the spamming.  I'm glad you remember my twins fondly and Elwin and Legolas.  So nice to revisit old friends.  Hugs!

This was hilarious, such a ingenious plot!! Gave me quite a laugh when i read about the kiss, such great stories are hard to come by, both funny and serious and filled With emotions. Great work!!

Author's Response:

Oh, it's always lovely to get a new reader. Yes, the twins certainly got one over on Thranduil. Thanks so much for letting me know you enjoyed it!  Much appreciated!

'Then, oh gods, he felt it coming. The blackness. Cold scales. Gathering and slithering, it coiled about him. A series of rapid images, kneeling by his brother's rent body as the forest burned about them, his face wet with tears. Elrohir felt himself curling into a ball. He heard his own voice screaming. It wasn't fair. Why did they do this to themselves? Why couldn't they quit this obsession for all time?

He sank into a black grief and remained there for what seemed an age.'

I keep reading this over and over again. You're the only one who can write them like this, it all makes sense when you explain it like this.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much, Riraito!  I appreciate your comment.
