Good to be back Naledi :) All my characters would argue that they are as hot as Legolas lol

It's lovely to see you back, Glorfindel. Legolas may be mad, but compared to the rest of his family he's perfectly reasonable. And hot :)

Thanks Ziggy and Naledi - I am really happy you are enjoying it. I am hoping to write more frequently - gone are the days when I had lots of time.

Yes, it's great to see them back. They're all barking mad. Except gorgeous Legolas, of course.

Reviews For Beloved Flesh

Name: Elvewen (Signed) · Date: April 09, 2013 23:19 · For: Chapter 1
Oh wow Alpha!!! I think I'd forgotten how well you write.

You know, I was suprised to see a Roh/Las fic from you but as always, you pulled it off wonderfully.

But this, Alpha, "tugged at his heart, that saddened him to the very core when he thought of ever losing him. And yet he had never had him, never would." - this caught me and forcd me to read the next paragraph and I thought I would start crying. I've never read death so beautifully written. It seemed like falling into a warm embrace and I really did not want to go on. But I did and Elladan was heart breaking in the moment he identified Elrohir and his intial coldness towards Legolas' tears and then, the moment when reality set in and he understood just what he stood to loose - it was perfect. You captured the twins who worked tirelessly to avenge their mother, fought side by side at the Black Gate, stayed back in Middle Earth even after Elrond left, spent every moment of their lives in each other's company. And the realisation that one of them could be lost. Brilliant!

You know, when I first started reading this fic, I skipped over a lot to get to the ending - there was no way in hell Elrohir could've died and then I read your last paragraph and just, wow. I would read this piece a thousand times for your last three lines. It was so beautiful, so heartfelt. I was laughing and crying and feeling giddy and all sorts of silly things *face palm*

I loved this, I really did. I am so jealous of Naledi right now:) Congratulations on yet another brilliant piece.

Author's Response: I really have missed your insightful comments, and I am so glad I managed to wrench that many emotions from you. True this pairing is completely new for me, but that is what Naledi enjoys and it was refreshing to try something different. Thank you for such a wonderful review. Ah, and when is your birthday? :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This was perfect - my favourite couple, a desperate fight against the odds and a happy (ish) ending. I loved it!

I was all ready to cry at the sorrow of the pair discovering their love too late, but then those wonderful words - 'He lives'! I'm happily imagining Elrohir's recuperation with Legolas's loving ministrations now :-)

 



Author's Response: I am glad it was woth it. That sounds like a request to me. Of course you could try your own hand at a second chapter... Ehem.

You can paint a scene beautifully, Alpha. Elladan's detached reaction is perfectly realised and the ending is wonderful.

Author's Response: Thank you, Merin. Those are very kind and motivating words, and I am so glad you enjoyed it!

oh- how fabulously delicious this is! Lovely yearning and unrequited love that ends with recognition. A lovely gift for Naledi- lucky girl!



Author's Response: Thanks, Ziggy. This just popped into my head as I thought of Naledi and her favourite pairing. I wondered then if I had chosen too harsh a subject for a birthday present... then I smirked mischievously at myself and everything went downhill from there!!

Oooh, Alpha Ori, this was too good. To say your writing is skillful is such an understatement. What a battle scene. It’s just as if I were standing in Elrohir’s boots. And his reaction to “death” was so believable I couldn’t have seen the lovely surprise ending. This deserves a standing ovation Alpha. Bravo!

Author's Response: Those are very generous words, I am very flattered and humbled :) When a reader tells me they could 'see' the action, that is when I know it has worked at least to some extent. The standing ovation is, I believe, the first I have ever received!! Thank you so much.
