This is such a lovely story, CB. It has all the tenderness and love you could wish for and the very sweet relationship between Aragon and Eldarion, Aragorn and Legolas nad Leholas and Eldarion- perfect.



Author's Response:

Glad you liked it. I am stuck in a grove of writing Legolas/Eldarion/Aragorn at the moment. I really enjoy them together and their dynamic. Story ideas for the three of them just won't leave me alone!

Author's Response:

Thank you :-) So glad you liked it! I really enjoy writing Legolas and Eldarion together.

Lovely, Cheeky. Poor Eldarion, regretting his lack of choice, when the same choice was such a burden to his mother and uncles. 



Author's Response:

Yes, this! 

Of course Eldarion is a child and the true reality of the burden of immortality in a mortal world escapes him . He will no doubt see things differently when he matures, although perhaps at some time in the future his parents are going to have to talk to him very frankly about Arwen's choice, the twins, and Legolas' own burdens. 

I am glad you liked this one. It is one of my favourites.

Ha ha... Saw this on Teitho, and I had to vote it 1st. When I saw the author list down below though, had the sneaky suspicion it was yours! Congratulations:) I'm glad it won. By far it was the best.

Eldarion was such a real little boy, so perceptive. The glimpse of him in the movies was just like this, so smart, so intuitive with those almost unearthly eyes. Brilliant. I can see why he would gravitate toward Legolas, just until he saw truly that a life of a man is worth living too. He saw him as almost this demi-god with life handed to him on a silver spoon. But there's greatness in mortality and weakness. It takes more to live life that way. You showed it perfectly... and through a child's eyes too. Mm, lovely. You're truly gifted with a pen.

Hope life is treating you better today! Take care. :))

Author's Response:

Thank you!

oh, so pleased Eldarion felt real to you. I was thinking of my own little boy when I wrote him who is 11, (well due to the time lag with Teitho he was 10 when I wrote this) so a little bit older than Eldarion here. 

Eldarion will see that being a Man is worth something, as he grows. I think Aragorn has maybe been a little bit lax in teaching him this. Maybe Eldarion's growing slipped under his radar....he is a King with a kingdom to rule after all. Suddenly he turns around and his small boy is well on the way to becoming a Man. He will fix that now. Make more time for him, put effort in to handing on his heritage. 

It is hard for Legolas, turning up looking very important, strong, magical in a small boys eyes, not to draw Eldarions attention and Legolas, when he is there, can devote time to him. If you remember, in Hands of the King, Legolas has major issues with the Pelantir. I think it is something he and Aragorn have agreed to disagree on and they avoid mention of it. So I think Aragorn taking Eldarion to the tower where it is kept is important. That room is probably the only part of his life, (apart from Arwen in the bedroom!) that Legolas is not a part of. The most Mannish part of all.
