Lovely last chapter. I enjoyed the way you described Legolas' return to health. Beautiful description of the relationship between father and son.
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. I like father/son stories and especially Thranduil intrigues me. Glad you enjoyed the story.
Oh dear, things do not look well for poor Legolas. Poor Thranduil, too, to have so much reason to worry!
On a side note, I really enjoy reading a sensibe, reasonable Thranduil, who is much more than the arrogant, jewel-crazy snob as so many seem to see.
Author's Response: I think Thranduil is a responsible and caring leader. He and his people are fighting for so long against the encroaching darkness, he has to care for them. I also can't see why he shouldn't love his son.
Awww...a lovely, peaceful ending. Obviously Legolas still hasn't made a full recovery, and he'll have to go and fight again when he does, but I enjoyed that moment of serenity at the end. It was nice to see Thranduil able to appreciate it :)
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I think Thranduil deserved some peace and quiet at the end.
Legolas is lucky to have a father as caring as Thranduil. I loved Thranduil's determination to look after his son. I agree with you that I don't like it when Thranduil is portrayed as a bad father.
At least Legolas seems to be on the mend. I'm glad you ended the chapter upon a note of hope :)
Author's Response: Tolkien wrote that elves cherish their children, so why should Thranduil be an exception? I don't think so, especially after the way he was portrayed in the book.
Oh poor Thranduil. What a nightmare for him. Sitting, watching waiting, unable to do anything.
Loved the last scene with the slowly waking Legolas!
Author's Response: Thanks for your comment. I tend to think that they have a good relationship, not that horried thing P.J. showed in the hobbit movies.
Oh no - poor Legolas! Still, it's an opportunity to see Thranduil's fatherly, protective side :)
Author's Response: Hi Naledi, thanks for commenting. I really hated what they did to Thranduil's and Legolas' relationship with the Hobbit-Movies. I can't imagine them to be so cold to each other.
