Loved this story. From the action scenes to Elladans's amusing love story.
Legolas and Glorfindel were both to blame in their relationship problems which is very realistic. Glorfindel because he assumed superiority due to his age and failed to treat Legolas as his equal and Legolas for not speaking up about issues he had which meant they continued to grow.
Loved it all!
Thanks, Cheekybeak! Legolas and Glorfindel aren't my usual pairing, much as I love them together, so I'm glad this story worked for you. I had a lot of fun writing it, and always love to hear that others have enjoyed reading it :)
This is a great story. The difference between Legolas and Glorfindel, the strife and make up. The binding at the end. And of course the action sprinkled through it all, keeping it from being "just another silly romance story". Well done.
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it, especially the action. My stories are usually too short to include much in the way of action, so I enjoyed writing this longer tale that gave more scope to try something a bit different :)
Thanks for reviewing :)
I quite enjoyed the story. I liked your Legolas and Glorfindel as they both have their flaws. I'm in awe of Glorfindel's patience with Legolas temper and I can understand very well why Legolas would be hesitant to speak about his discontent with Glorfindel. Oh, and I liked the action sequences very much!
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed this, and that you liked Legolas and Glorfindel despite their flaws.
Glorfindel doesn't mind Legolas' temper - he enjoys the making up so much ;)
This is just the kind of story I like, with action, romance, and the kind of characters I enjoy spending time with. The personalities of Legolas and Glorfindel really shine through, and the resolution is sweet and satisfying. An excellent read.
Oh thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed this. I'm not so used to writing Legolas with Glorfindel, although it's one of my favourite pairings, so I'm glad the characters came across as convincing to you.
Thanks for the lovely review :)
This is a magnificent story. It has humour, romance, drama - all pulled together with a wonderful narrative style that had be laughing, angry, sad, then happy. This is indeed what Tolkien meant in his definition of a 'faerie story'.
Thank you - I'm so glad you liked it, and that it brought out all those different emotions in you. Your lovely review has really made my day :)
This is such a beautiful story, and one that made me incredibly happy when the SV stories were revealed! I love everything about it: the way you handle Glorfindel and Legolas and their differences, their feelings for each other, Legolas' marvelous rescue mission and Glorfindel's fear for him - and of course, their reconciliation. It's absolutely perfect, and I'm so glad to see it on here too!
How could I not post this story on your site! Glorfindel/Legolas is a pairing I'm very fond of, so it was a joy to write this. I've always been intrigued by how a large age gap would affect a relationship with elves, so your request gave me the ideal opportunity to explore it.
Thanks for reviewing :)
P.S. I've got another G/L story to post here that I put up on my LJ a couple of Christmases ago, and another one in the pipeline. I love this archive :)
:D Such a sweet ending!
Thank you! I'm glad the ending made you happy :) Thank you for reviewing.
Ooh, the tension :D And yay for Elladan and Talagan! (Even if his delicious behind distracts the hapless Peredhil ;))
*snort* I'm glad you enjoyed that bit! I just couldn't resist giving Elladan some of the action too :)
Really interesting idea, how it would play out if Legolas had a lover when he falls under the sea-longing :) Can't wait to see how this plays out!
Thank you. I'm glad you like it so far. I've always considered that one of the reasons Legolas moved to ithilien was to be closer to the sea. In the end I didn't explore the sea-longing aspect of the story as much as I would have liked. It will be something for a future tale!
Oh, this was very well done! You did not skimp on the difficulties Glorfindel faced; it was very honest and thought-provoking, and at the end, joyful!
Oh thank you! I'm glad you found it convincing. And I'm always one for happy endings :)
This is interesting -- to see the kind of chinks that can open in a relationship between two people who love one another deeply, but are both warriors, both experienced, but one younger than the other. Of course Glorfindel cannot but feel protective, but it is where that becomes interference that the fault-line widens.
Yes, I've always felt that a relationship between an ancient elf and a younger one would be very difficult, because of the huge gap in experience that would always exist. That's what I wanted to explore here - whether Glorfindel would ever be able to see Legolas as his equal. Because of course however much Legolas loves him, he would never settle for less than equality in the relationship.
Thank you for reviewing :)
