Story notes:

This is a sequel to Fire Dancing Upon Our Souls. It's really going to help if you have read that beforehand.....And Light of a Thousand Stars....and Darkness in Your Heart. 

 

Synopsis of the most important points.

Legolas had an older brother Laerion who died protecting him while they were fighting in the Greenwood. 

His Mother could not deal with his death and fled to Valinor while Legolas was away fighting in the south. She did not say goodbye to him. 

Legolas has a Silvan partner, Maewen he has loved since they were young but Silvan do not restrict themselves to one love as the Noldor do. They are fluidly polygamous, so Legolas and Elrohir also have a connection as do Maewen and Erynion, Legolas' childhood friend. The story of these is told in "Fire"

Legolas suffered a traumatic injury he nearly did not survive in Minas Tirith after the Ring War. It has left him damaged in ways you will see later. 

I think that's all. 

 

This is especially for Naledi my incredibly regular reviewer who didn't want Aragorn,

NelyafinweFeanorion who knows my characters SO well,

and UnnamedElement my most esteemed beta! 

Credit for the title goes to Bob Dylan. It's from a quote of his: No-one is free—even the birds are chained to the sky, which fits my Legolas in Valinor perfectly,
