Wonderful! This gives a sense of the strength of the bond between father and son, even though they are far apart.
Author's Response: Thank you. I like to think that there would be a strong bond between these two, especially as they would have been through so much together in trying to protect their homeland.
Oh! I love this. It seems very "Legolas" to me. Legolas as I see him. Very much a woodelf ,mdefferent from the Noldor. And a lovely connection to his father.
For Legolas—especially, who Tolkien suggested had not travelled outside his woods, the idea of the quest must have been daunting. (And exciting at the same time)
This is especially sad because we know he never went back to those woods really. He lost his home and had to make a new one elsewhere due to the sealonging. Such a loss for him.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. It means a lot to me that you like the way Legolas comes across. To me he has always been very much the woodelf and I could never see why people thought that he and his father would not get on. Elves treasure their children and Legolas would very much have been wanted. I agree with you last sentiment too. For one with such a strong connection to his woodland home the sealonging must have been truly devastating.
