Vanimórë is right to be mad at the elves for their stupid feud. They behave like spoiled children.

It seems Dana finally shows her true face. What is she up to? Very ceepy, what's happened in the temple. Especially the last part.

Author's Response: Thank you for commenting, Starfox -- I will copy what I said about Dana -- I believe Dana wants to attract Melkor's presence, since she undoubtedly knows what happened in Tashon Narr when Sauron got too close. Now Melkor is aware -- it's like being on the other side of a wall from a monster who knows you are there but can't get to you -- nevertheless it's unnerving, and maybe she thinks Sauron won't come to a place where Melkor is 'close'. Thank you so much for reviewing :)

You killed Seran (sniffles). I really liked that horse.

Very disconcerting images you are painting here with the horse. Poor Legolas, killing these beings must have been hard.

It's interesting to see what powers Vanimórë possesses. I'm curious to see where that will lead.

Author's Response: Seran was modeled on a horse I had years ago, who was just such a bad-tempered black brute, but wow, he was magnificent, and would have made a brilliant horse to ride in battle. I was sad to lose Seran, but Van loses everything he loves in the end, and this is war :( I think Legolas would have found it horrific, but he did what was necessary.

Well, Van cannot access his powers, there is too great a mental block, but his father can use him like an augmentation if he wants. Of course I know what's going to happen, but I have to write it yet :)
Thank you so much for the review, Starfox :) I appreciate it!

Date: December 15, 2016 Title: Chapter 46: Chapter 46 ~ Through Clouded Glass We See ~

It's good to get another glimpse into Glorfindel's mind and to see how he thinks now about the whole thing.

How will Legolas feel when he discovers that Glorfindel was with him the whole time without his knowledge? He didn't want to see him and now Glorfindel is disguised and Legolas doesn't know he's there. Wouldn't he feel betrayed when he discovers the truth? Even worse so when there really would be intimacy between him and Glorfindel in his disguise as Man?

I'm looking forward to see where you are taking their relationship. Glorfindel would deserve it if Legolas doesn't forgive him and he can't win him.

Author's Response: Legolas' feelings for Glorfindel...I think he tries to forget, to be honest, and almost his whole attention is on Gěl. If he did know Glorfindel were here the whole time, I think he would feel completely confused. But he's not the same Legolas now that would have done anything for a kind word and a bit of attention. I don't know that Glorfindel does deserve him to be honest, and this was never supposed to be a Legolas/Glorfindel story anyhow, it was a 'what if Legolas didn't end up with Glorfindel?' So it depends on many things. I'm not sure if, at the end of the day, they'd even want each other. Attraction, yes; Glorfindel likes a certain type of lover, and as he was Legolas ticked all the boxes, but as an Elf shaped by Sauron, would he? Maybe casually, but not seriously. And while Legolas will always like being dominated, would he ever be able to let Glorfindel do that to him without being hurled straight back to the time when he was raped? I mean...maybe... perhaps deep down he will always want that. Maybe there could be something, but we're going to have to see :)

Thank you again, for the comments, Starfox :)

It looks like things are getting interesting now, Sauron won't like that at all. It's a sad state of affairs that Legolas is right and he can't go home at the moment.

I really loved him telling Glorfindel off. Glorfindel so deserved it as well as his helpless rage that he can't do anything to get Gil.

I really loved Legolas here, he has indeed grown up, which makes his charakter very interesting.

Gil is still a mystery, I'm curious when we will learn why he is how he is.

Author's Response: Hello, Starfox :) Thank you for commenting :)

Yes, it is indeed unfortunate that Legolas cannot go home (yet) and knows it, but he's right that Gěl would just become a locus, wanted by both Imladris and the Wood, claimed by them both.

Legolas has been growing, quietly, ever since he ran away from the Wood, but now he's seen things that have forced him into growing up very fast. Too fast, Van thinks. But it could hardly have been otherwise.
As for Gěl, well he is an enigma, but more will be revealed in time.

Date: January 20, 2017 Title: Chapter 49: Chapter 49 ~ Outpacing The Shadow ~

I really love Vanimórë. I hope, some time in the future he has the chance to be happy. He is just adorable. As damaged as he is, he still is his own person and fights for what he thinks is right.

I liked the way Legolas treated Glorfindel here. They have to come to some arrangement, with Gil being both their son. I'm looking forward to a serious conservation between these two.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Starfox; Van was born a fighter -- not likely to give him an easy life, but he does try to do what is right for others, if not himself.



Reviewer: Starfox Signed
Date: February 19, 2017 Title: Chapter 50: Chapter 50 ~ A Jewell In The Storm~

Beuatifully written. Finally Vanimórë can relax for at least one night.

You make me really curious what Gilrion is in reality. He is a mystery I would like to see solved.

I would have loved to see more of the encounter between Legolas and the other elves, especially Glorfindel. It would have been interesting to "hear" his thoughts and see them interacting. Any chance of that, maybe in a flashback?

Author's Response: Oh, we shall definitely learn more of Gil :) And yes, I am sure that we will see some of Legolas' night in flashbacks! Thank you so much for commenting, Starfox :)

I would have loved to read about the conversation between Gandalf and the twins when he explains them his plan. Elrohir's reaction would have been interesting and I also wonder why Elladan let him volunteer, despite the ugly scene between Elrohir and Legolas that he witnessed.

Author's Response:

Glad you are reading this, Starfox. That conversation would indeed be interesting- now I think about it I wonder why I didn't write that.  I suppose I was interested in the Fellowship in particular. 

 

Elladan didn't know either- the end of hte chpater says:

One of the sons of Elrond stood there, staring with the same look of horror and loss on his face, elven-fair. His eyes travelled then to Gimli.

 

'They are gone then,' he said. 'They are gone and not even farewell.' And Elladan covered his eyes with his strong, swordsman's hand much the way Aragorn had.

 

I am quite sure Elladan would not have let Elrohir go had he known and both Legolas and Elrohir leave too early for anyone to stop them. 

 



Reviewer: Starfox Signed
Date: February 02, 2017 Title: Chapter 21: Chapter 21 The Remains of the Fellowship

There's always the possibility for a missing scene ;-)

>

But before the confrontation between Legolas and Elrohir Elladan told Elrohir that Gandalf wishes to speak with them. So he was about to tell them of his plans concerning Legolas. They were obviously together when Gandalf revealed that Legolas was to confront the Nazgul and that one of them was to deliver the Milui-Criss. So it seems that they agreed that Elrohir would go with Legolas and I wonder why Elladan agreed to that after he witnessed how badly Elrohir treated Legolas.

Author's Response:

Ah- but it was Elladan who was supposed to go! There's something later on that tells you that but I can't remember where- maybe I'll add a line into that chapter to make it clear!!



Reviewer: Starfox Signed
Date: February 05, 2017 Title: Chapter 21: Chapter 21 The Remains of the Fellowship

Sorry for nagging, but I really think you should extend this or the next chapter a bit.

If Elladan was supposed to go with Legolas, it's even more confusing. So how did Legolas meet up with Elrohir and decide to go with him instead of Elladan? Did Elrohir wait for him at the stables? How did he convince him to go with him? One would think that he would prefer Elladan's company for his last hours who was at least sympathetic instead of outright hostile like his brother.

But then, since he was going to his death anyway, maybe he didn't care.

Date: January 23, 2017 Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 11 Gimli's boots

Just rereading the story and I wonder about one thing:

"Typical of Thranduil’s folk. You could not kill your own but you can sneak off watch to put an arrow through an Orc."

How would Elrohir know that? Legolas didn't tell them about it. So, lucky guess on Elrohir's part or did I miss a conversation?

And yes, Elrohir behaves like an orc, at the moment there's nothing that makes him likeable. He is full of fury, contempt and hatred.

Author's Response:

So glad you are re-reading it Starfox- I had to go back as well because I couldn't remember. It was this:

 

Suddenly Elrohir turned to Gimli. ‘At the least he must have left his post to do this!’ he cried. ‘Tell me, for how long did you let him out of your sight?’

 

Gimli frowned and walked slowly over to them, knowing that when dealing with Elves it was best to walk slowly, appear unthreatening whilst keeping your hand on your axe and your finger on your throwing knife. Just in case. ‘Why are you asking?’ he said carefully.

 

‘This!’ Elrohir reached down and snatched up the green fletched arrow from where Legolas had placed it and thrust it towards Gimli. ‘This was in the heart of the Orc I left as a warning.’ He turned back to Legolas. ‘He left his post to shoot it!’

 

‘I did not leave my post.’ Legolas said from where he sat.

 

‘You must have! No one could shoot that distance in the dark.’ Elrohir poured out his scorn and anger. ‘You must have left your post and taken it upon yourself to silence the Orc because it was disturbing you. Typical of Thranduil’s folk. You could not kill your own but you can sneak off watch to put an arrow through an Orc.’

 

He found Legolas' arrow in the orc. He's  so angry about that- been allowed ot roll on his journey of hate for so long he stopped seeing it.

No, I didn't mean this. I mean how does he know that Legolas couldn't deliver the milui-criss to Naurion? He didn't tell that to the council or to anybody. He only told them that the guards were slain or taken. So how does Elrohir know this?

Author's Response:

Ah- I see. I think he would have heard this in the gossip afterwards. Legolas will have had conversations outside the council- including to Gandalf, but also pillow talk with Berensul  Gossip is rife in Imladris and it only takes a moment for something to slip out. Maybe I need ot slip something in to earlier chapters to make that clear- Berensul is simply not discrete or trustworthy- he is a spy for Erestor. 



Title: The Black Arrow by ziggy
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 152]
Summary:

Thranduil strikes a bargain with his fiery neighbour.

Smaug is dead and Esgaroth is devastated. Thranduil arrives with help

The story of how the black arrow that killed Smaug came to Bard. 'Black Arrow!" said the bowman. "Black arrow! I have saved you to the last. You have never failed me and always I have recovered you. I had you from my father and he from of old. If ever you came from the forges of the true King under the Mountain, go now and speed well!"

It was brought from the Lonely Mountain, from the forges of the true King under the Mountain. But it was taken from Smaug’s horde by someone quite unexpected.

The story of how the Black Arrow came to be in Bard’s hands, and how Legolas got his tattoo.

This was a very intense chapter. Poor Thalos, poor Legolas and poor Thranduil.

Luckily Legolas managed to save Thalos even if the poor guy is in bad condition.

I pitied Thranduil here. To fear to have lost all three sons, that must be pure hell. It's good that they're all together again.

Author's Response:

Thank you Starfox- I suppose I am on a campaign to redress PJ's character assassination of Thranduil. He has always been one of my favourite characters. Next chapter is one I have been really waiting to write so hopefully, some time over Easter will get that done. Thanks again.



Reviewer: Starfox Signed
Date: July 25, 2017 Title: Chapter 24: Chapter 24

I really love the banter between Legolas and Anglach. Even if it shows how young and naive they still are.

It's a nice twist that Gandalf and Thranduil learn about the ring now instead of Gandalf finding out much later.

Author's Response:

It is easy to write Anglach as he is such a naive innocent- in many ways. I think he is preserved from any ill because he meets such a horrible death. I feel guilty so I give him lots of nice things as Legolas' side kick. And I think Thranduil knows that something cruel is in Anglach's future and so he is more generous with him- but also Anglach is just so sweet and harmless.

I don't know at what point canon-wise that Bilbo tells Gandalf that he has a magic ring but certainly there is s ense that Thranduil knows because f his farewell to Bilbo. It doesn't matter to the stroy except that I think Bilbo needed to tell Legolas and Anglach HOW he duped them and he could not do that without revelaing the ring.

Glad you are enjoying it, Starfox.



Reviewer: Starfox Signed
Date: February 19, 2017 Title: Chapter 17: Chapter 17 Fire and Water

You describe the horror that is Smaug very intense.

Laersul is just great in this. You really write him very likable.

Tho font size is a bit small, maybe you can change that?

Author's Response:

GLad you found this chapter intense and liked Laersul- I needed to build him up as a character in this so readers would care about him in Where the Shadows Lie. But he is one of those characters that make you feel things will be all right.

 

I have no end of trouble trying to get the font size right and give up. It's because I use Pages and it doesn't easily cut and paste- sometimes it works, sometimes not. I have even had the font size 18 and it still pastes tiny! You have a button that will enlarge the font as a reader and to be honest, the time it takes me to try and get it sorted is time I could be writing and most readers would prefer I get on and write. It is very frustrating for me too!! Usually it's last thing at night and can take me half an hour before I give up.



Reviewer: Starfox Signed
Date: May 10, 2017 Title: Chapter 23: Chapter 23

You really make me like Anglach, so it's hard to know that he dies in a most horrific way later. I love how he reacts to Bilbo. It really made me laugh.

Laersul is great, too. It's a nice idea to make him catch Bilbo using the ring. It's a pity that he doesn't come to the right conclusion but then this story would habe been AU.

I'm curious how Thranduil and Legolas will react to the revelation that Bilbo tricked Legolas and Anglach.

Author's Response:

You are a temptress!! I have not thought of making this an AU as I always stick pretty close to canon and write in between the spaces...but this would have been intersting. I wonder if the Ring hides from Laersul and Thranduil....it has already sung to Thranduil a bit when it was in the stronghold...

Glad you are enjoying this anyway. Thank you for reviewing:)

They are both not easy with each other at the moment. Not to say annoying. Legolas is always so fast to judge, not trying to listen and understand, instead just assuming the worst and walking away and Elrohir should get his act together and try to explain.

This noncommunication they have going is getting them nowhere it only causes them both a lot of hurt.

Author's Response:

Yeah, Legolas....well there will be an explanation for his behaviour coming up. Have you read choices? It may help it make sense....or it may not! And Elrohir, well he doesn't really have much of a clue about communicating in a romantic relationships. And Legolas' volatility makes not much sense to him. It is early days and neither of them know the other very well. It shows.

Reviewer: Starfox Signed

Finally Elrohir talks with Arwen. It was overdue that they talk with each other about their choices. Elrohir is obviously totally smitten and Arwen understands. It is a nice scene between them.

The scene in the garden is very nice. Finally they can be together in front of the others. Although it seems Legolas can't stay still for a certain amount of time ;-). I liked Aragorn's and Elladan's reactions.

You could easily end the story with this chapter, it's a very nice stopping point.

Author's Response:

I missed this review somehow! This IS the last chapter. I ended them on a high note of togetherness. You are right, Legolas has trouble staying still and just chilling. Maybe Elrohir can help,him with that. Neither Elladan or Aragorn were going anywhere near another sparring match....they are not stupid! 

Thanks for the review!



Title: Where the Shadows Lie by ziggy
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 182]
Summary:

A body has been found, its blood drained. Legolas and Gimli in pursuit. Warning for explicit slash in this chapter.

Not only the Three survive Sauron's fall, and not all darkness is vanquished. Warnings: loads of slash, dark lust, non-con/dubious consent, Sons of Feanor, dodgy Science.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The One Ring has been destroyed and Sauron banished to the Dark with his own Master, Morgoth. But not all the Rings were destroyed with it; the Three made by Celebrimbor to counter the One are free now and there are artefacts still in the ruined cities of both Mordor and Eregion. And the fate of those lesser Rings is not known...yet. Against this, Legolas and Elrohir struggle in their new found love and not all is smooth. By any means.

I shudder to think about what will happen to the poor guy.

This story gets creepier with each chapter. I can't help but pity Bearas. Originally, he was not a bad fellow. Good thing that he at least didn't kill his child.

Poor Legolas, looks like you have some more bad experiences in store for him. The note is very bad indeed because Legolas will come when he thinks Gimli calls for him.

Author's Response:

You are so right, Starfox- treasure indeed for the Ring!I'm relieved someone pities Bearos- he really is possessed and the ring has devoured him as it did the Nazgûl, except he is not strong enough or powerful enough to bear it really. Yes- Legolas is in real danger. And yes, nasty things ahead!!

Poor Legolas has obviously experienced more dreadful things than anybody suspects. I wonder if he ever will open up to Elrohir about his past.

Author's Response:

Thanks Starfox. Thanks for the compliment about Gandalf's 'reveal'.

Yes- poor old Legolas has had some quite nasty encounters with the Nazgul- both in his previous career if you like as captain/ warrior of the Woodland Realm, and in Sons of Thunder, both he and Elrohir have that huge encounter with the Nazgul (not sure if you have read that) and that is the really nasty one.

Glad you liked the hobbit scene- I was worried that it might slow the story down but in the end, Merry and Pippin decided they were coming along for the ride- and I like writing the fellowship. Thanks for reviewing.

I love the banter between Legolas and Gimli here. They are great with each other.

Bearos is creepy, really creepy. I'm courios where this all is going.

Author's Response:

Bearos is really lost now- he has done things from which there is no going back and I'm not sure will ever be discovered now...and Legolas is investigating with NO idea where it's going either! Thank you for the review:)

You really make me fear for Bearas and his family. But shouldn't the ring have lost its power, like the three elven rings? At least it should be greatly diminished.

Elladan should have buried the thing. Although it stand to reason that the other wraiths should have picked it up, so why didn't they? They searched the whole Pelennor for the ring of Angmar.

Poor Elrohir, finally things seemed better for him, only to turn back to be really bad. Why had Aragorn to send him back without Elladan or Legolas?

One thing that made me wonder: Through A Glass Darky happened after Legolas arrived in Imladris. So if Angmar cast the spell then, how could Elrohir believe for centuries that he nearly raped his mother? After all, in the past centuries the spell had no hold over him.

Poor Legolas too. The really need each other at the moment. Luckily Gimli is there for him.

Author's Response:

I cannot answer all those questions righ now with regard tot he Ring and the Nazgul as that would be spoliers! But those questions are going to linger once the existence of that ring is discovered- but certainly it was not in Mordor when Sauron and the Nazgul were vanquished so how would have been destroyed having been lost on the Mindolluin? It was left there certainly and yes, they searched for Angmar's ring to force upon Elrohir- their best bet for a new King, but it is difficult to see how it would have been destroyed when it was so far from Mordor.

 

Elladan is with Elrohir- he went on The Elendil. But if you remember, elrohir was bitter because Elladan was really going for Imrahil and not him, but he also doesn't want to begrudge him the happiness that he has found either.

 

re Elrohir's beleif that he had raped his mother- that IS the spell. Angmar recast his memories, worked them back and through so he thinks he always believed that. It's in Glass- up until then he had been distressed and angry about his mother's rape and torment, confused and bitter about what he sees as his corruption and violent desire and then two had already become confused, but he doesn't beleive he raped his mother until Angmar.

I shudder to thing what you have in store for our heroes. The last chapter was very dark and unsettling. Poor Elrohir, here he thought he was rid of the ringwraiths and now that.

Author's Response:

Yes, well I'm afraid it is going to be rather nasty in places- but good too Ihope and with the beginning of some resolution in some of hte threads.

Yes- I agree. Poor Elrohir indeed.
