Reviews For Brothers

Name: Encairion (Signed) · Date: October 10, 2016 2:14 · For: Chapter 1

Oh I really liked this!  It had a lot of sorrow, but the promise of healing at the end too.  Boromir is my favorite Mortal in all of the Middle-earth, so I am so so happy to see the way you wrote him (it’s such a frustration of mind how he’s so often vilified!).  And Legolas having a brother!  And Aragon not even knowing!  I really like the way you wrote Leoglas here, I especially like to see him from the eyes of Mortals; he’s so otherworldly.  That scene when Boromir sees him by the stream was so gorgeously written!

 

I hope you are doing well, and thanks so much for sharing this :hugs:



Author's Response:

Hi! Glad you liked this. 

This is from my non slash universe which I publish under another name on Ffnet.

Legolas in this is young (comparatively) and unused to mortals. He has little experience outside of his woods and didn't know Aragorn before the quest. The story of their first meeting is in "Lost in Translation"

 

And yes, he has a brother. When I wrote this all I knew was his brother was older and had died. I have since discovered that death was a traumatic mess and left Legolas with a heap of undealt with scars. I wrote that in "Darkness in your Heart." But you might not like that story. It is my experiment with writing a female OC and trying to make her believable......and hopefully not a "Legolomance" In the end it became all about his brother's death, the fallout from that, conflict with Aragorn and a romantic relationship that is disintegrating because of appalling communication. 

 

So yeah, his brothers back story can be found there. :-)

 

P.S. I have another Boromir/Legolas story in my head. I also think Boromir gets a really bad deal. Will write it one day!

Thank you for posting this, Cheeky - I love it! You've given a really strong sense of Legolas's otherness, here--how he puzzles, infuriates and yet draws others in. I really liked the comparison between Legolas's and Faramir's situations as younger sons suddenly expected to step into the elder's shoes. I'm glad Legolas was able to offer Faramir some comfort.

I had to smile at the mention of the sons of Elrond always glaring. I expect it's because Legolas has another lover in this universe and Elrohir is all jealous and making Elladan suffer as a result :)



Author's Response: Glad you liked it. I really should have posted it before the other story, because it helps show how Legolas feels about his brother's death and also the beginning of his relationship with Faramir.....who is about to appear in the next chapter. Ha, ha, Glaring sons of Elrond....of course that's why! Elrohir is steaming with jealousy and unrequited love. Elladan is sick to death of hearing about it....endlessly...

I am so glad you posted this - I found it a fascinating insight into them all, not just Faramir and Legolas, but Boromir and Aragorn, too.



Author's Response: Thank you! It was you who got me thinking about Boromir in the first place. I meant to put that in the Chapter notes but forgot....by saying Legolas and Boromir had similarities.....that is where this story came from, as so as a result "The Darkness in Your Heart" also.. I am glad you liked it. It is not quite as good as Boromir seeing a naked Legolas in a waterfall and thinking he was a statue though!


Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: May 07, 2016 23:42 · For: Chapter 1

I think this is one of your very best, cheekybeak.It is absolutely delightful- full of a wonderful sense of Legolas as mercurial, enigmatic, mishcevious, brilliant and daring- and a rather uncertain Faramir. But I think I like the most the delicacy of the relatioship with Boromir. You make me want ot write those two together.

Lovely work



Author's Response: Thank you! I had forgotten all about this but then Naledi made a comment on the other story that reminded me I really should have posted this first so people could understand Legolas' thoughts on his brother. ..so here it is.... I was very nervous about writing Boromir, I had never written him before and he scared the pants off me. I am pleased you liked that part best. I was terrified I couldn't do Boromir justice! And then this......and Time Waits For No Man.....led into The Darkness in Your Heart story. I am shocking at writing something and then needing to wrote more....and more.....and more....need to stop doing that.
