Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Reviews For The Lucky Arrow

Name: Chiara Cadrich (Signed) · Date: February 17, 2016 19:00 · For: The Lucky Arrow
Well-built war-story ! But I guess they do not end so well in real life...

In Tolkien's writings arrows carry special significations. The red Arrow is a signal of war and deman of help. Bard's Arrow is of special smithing and bears its wielder's bane to the target.

Now I notice your arrow bears Faramir's token. So it might become a heirloom of Pocosin's family, unabling to keep woodlore wisdom in the family.

And one more thing from a frenchman to his american friend : you used tomahawk. Here in France we would probably use "francisque", the so-called one-hand axe of the franc barbarians.

Author's Response: Part of this story is based on the fact that, regardless of the war or in what time in history it occurred, soldiers frequently claim battlefield artifacts as souvenir's. I saw some rather grisly trophies collected by infantrymen when I was in Vietnam. Thank you for your review and informative comments.

Wow, I'm astonished how you blend so many different scenes and emotions together to create a great adventure.
Of course I was impatiently waiting to know what exactly the famed "one-of-a-kind" souvenir was and of course I had to wait to the last sentence for it to be finally revealed but I enjoyed the story immensely!

Author's Response: Please forgive my tardiness in responding to your review. Some recent family problems have kept me from my stories. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Please read the sequel, Green Fletchings.

I really enjoyed this chapter, with the amount of detail and thought obviously put into it, It feels very real to me. I look forward to reading more (Also Karlmir I am so pleased to see you have started to post your stories over here as well)

Author's Response: Thanks, Anwyn. I'll be posting a sequel to this story shortly.

Please also read "Trahald the Laborer" which I wrote in response to one of your challenges on www.lotrfanfiction.com

I have recently resumed work on "Arwen's Journey" and will begin posting updated chapters here as time allows.

I can imagine that souvenir hanging above the mantel in a farmstead for many, many years to come. Eventually tales would be told about how great-grandpa Pocosin shot the arrow himself, of course...

Author's Response: Pocosin appears in some of my other stories which I will posting soon. Thank you for your review.

I remember this from LOTRFF, Karlimir. A lovely fic!

Author's Response: I hope you found this tale just as enjoyable the second time around, SW. Thanks for reviewing.
