My god, I am tearing up over this.  It is just so beautiful.   It is full of the shadow of the coming mourning and yet joy as well.  Have I told you yet that I adore the way you are writing their friendship?  I have never been really into Aragon and Legolas’ friendship before; it was always just a thing, but not one I was really moved one way or the other about.  Not until now.  You write it perfectly.  



Author's Response:

Oh you are such a great reviewer because you always get what I wanted the reader to get. Sorrow and joy, that's exactly the feelings I wanted to convey, because I see this friendship as a real tangle of both emotions, all of the time. 

So glad you like the friendship, it's something else I have got a lot of grief about...don't get me wrong, there are plenty of readers who love it, but the ones who don't are quite outspoken. I know it is not your standard Aragorn/Legolas friendship, because they have conflict...quite a bit of conflict and misunderstanding along the way because of their differences. But they still strive to maintain what they have and that's what counts. 

But there are some readers who think anything other than picture perfect skipping through the tulips friendship is a sacrilege.

One of your best. Absolutely beautiful- full of emotion but subtle and poignant. Very very well written my dear.

Oh Cheekybeak this is absolutely stunning. Beautiful, melancholy, just so brilliantly done. It captures so much of the melancholy of loss that we experience and made so much more poignant through Elves, and here through Legolas and Aragorn. What a beautiful moment in time you caught, something that of course would be part of the psychology of elven/human relations. So lovely.

Author's Response: Thank you! What an amazing review to receive! It is melancholy but also hopeful and positive at the same time I hope. The eventual separation of these two is very sad.

Wonderful, Cheeky! Congratulations on getting second place - it deserves first, in my opinion.

This Legolas would make a wonderful father and I love the part where he says he's taking notes about Aragorn so that Aragorn will continue, in some form, through Legolas's line.

 



Author's Response: He would make a good father wouldn't he. No matter what Thranduil thinks....obviously not my usual Legolas. No Elrohir angst here!
