Me too, Naledi. She did tell me, in a response to a review to her very last update, that she imagined that all would end well and that everything is restored as it should be.

Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: May 16, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I thoroughly enjoy reading about Legolas and Gimli, their banter back and forth and their ongoing competitive Orc kill count always draws a laugh.
I do like a good battle scene, so I can't wait to see all these characters in action.
Great reading. :)

Author's Response:

So gald you are enjopying this one too, Gabriel! You might notice sometimes it doesn't quite follow everything in earlier fics because this was the second story I wrote after Songs of Rohan/Deeper than breathing. So there are things that I hadn't realised- so the orc that Legolas shoots and deprives Elrohir of his revenge isn't in this. 

 

Anyway- I think there are some good battle scenes in this too!

Thank you:)



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: May 17, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I really do like the Silvan's ability, {Legolas in particular}, to connect to the land and the thread 'Song'that binds all life together.
I like how Legolas can read a person {Or in this case} a collective energy,'the dead' by feeling or connecting to the song'.
Love it. :)

Author's Response:

Yes- Legolas has a particular abilty to hear the Song- I like to think that this is why Gandalf chooses him actually, as well as his quietness and skills. He is able to hear the dissonance then unless other magic suppresses it- I must get something into the current fic about Sauron deliberating working something into the rings to disguise their dissonance! I like that idea of 'collective energy'.



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: May 22, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Wow! Great fight scene Ziggy.
Poor Elrohir, all fire and fury, I wish someone would hurry up and figure out what's going on with him-he's so tortured and of course everything he feels and does stems from this. {Damn Nazgul, planting images and beliefs that aren't his.}
Great scene between them though. I was a little afraid that Legolas would leave Elrohir in a mess; knowing how fast and how deadly Legolas is with those knives and how much slower Elrohir would be with a sword to wield, not that he's not a great swordsman or anything.
I was secretly hoping neither of them would win, just come away bruised and bleeding both in ego and body, only because I like both of them.
Great stuff! :D

Author's Response:

Thank you Gabriel- this must have gone into my junk box because I have only discovered it by accident:( But what a lovely surprise!! I'm not sure which chapter this is as they are all cimg up for chapter 1 but I'm guessing it's the scene where Elrohir jumps Legolas on the pier on the way to minas tirith? I admit I am rather pleased with that one. I didn't know until that scene that Elrohir really wanted Legolas.Glad you enjoyed it:)



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 01, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I like Gimli in this. He's a friend, confindant and Legolas's conscious, in the very rare moments Legolas needs one.
He really has a problem with Elrohir, but who can blame him. Elrohir has had it in for Legolas, when there appears to be no reason for it. If only they knew. Gimli's fealty to Legolas is unrivalled.
I don't quite agree with Aragorn's attitude though.It seems to me he's accusing Legolas of the whole fight club thing, a bit unfair,I think he lets his biases cloud his judgement a bit too much, especially when Legolas has proven his loyalty and love for him as the King by being a part of the fellowship and all that entailed.
Elladan, I'm actually starting to really like this one. Even with his calm sensitive exterior, sometimes he comes across a lot more resilient and strong than Elrohir.
Fantastic! :)

Author's Response:

You are dead right about Aragorn's bias in this- even though Legolas is risking everything, he still takes his brother's side. He does come to regret that of course.

Elladan is a really lovely character- he is calm blue where Elrohir is roiling crimson and pounding blood. They make a good contrast, but it can't stay peaceful with all the secrets Elrohir carries.Thanks forreviewing- IJ really appreciate it, Gabriel.



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: July 22, 2017 Title: Chapter 14: Chapter 14 R

Yay! I'm so glad Legolas has realised Elrohir and Elladan were not playing him for a fool. That it was all a misunderstanding on his part. And he apologised for his mistreatment of them, which just goes to show how honorable Legolas is.
For once the sea longing has worked in Legolas' favor barring the Nazgul from gleaning anything of value and importance from his mind. But had left him open to physical harm.
Thank god for Elrohir!
One of my favorite parts was Elrohir realising he's in love. Maybe there's romance just round the corner for him, I hope so. He needs Legolas.
Great chapter! :)

Author's Response:

One of the really nice things about you reading and reivewing, Gabriel, is that I have to go back and re-read what I had wrtten and I admit I have enjoyed writing and even reading this. 

Yes- Elrohir has realised he loves Legolas. But Legolas still thinks he doesn't want him- and there is stil lSOOOOoooo much that can go wrong. You're coming up to the what I think of as BIG chapters in terms of the narrative and chracter developmnt- exciting stuff! (I hope so anywy)

Date: July 28, 2017 Title: Chapter 15: Chapter 15 Olorin

Oh, Ziggy! It was so good to have Gandalf/Olorin back, after so long even if he didn't use the extensive power he had before. Anything from Olorin is better than nothing at all.
So it seems that Gandalf had to go quite deep into Legolas' mind to glean the imformation he wanted, which just goes to show the extent the Nazgul go to also get what they want. {Poor Legolas} but he's strong, he'll make it through. {He's steel, as you say}.
Oh, and that poor Ranger, no words to describe his nightmarish circumstances. {Shivers}
But Elrohir! What a surprising and protective boon he has become for Legolas. And Gandalf's not quite sure how to take THIS son of Elrond.
What on Ennor is Gandalf planning for Legolas? It sounds extremely ominous and treacherous. But we all know Legolas would do it without question, because that's just who he is.
I loved this chapter!
Once again I felt like I was watching the 'Return of the King' except with a few extra scenes.
A great read Ziggy! :D



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: July 11, 2017 Title: Chapter 13: Chapter 13 Many Meetings

I felt so sorry for Elladan and Elrohir. They just seemed a bit out of place once it was all over. I guess being two of only three Elves fighting alongside thousands of Men must have been a bit sobering. And that whole misunderstanding with Legolas would have made matters worse, even with Aragorn close by.

I really felt for Elladan in particular this chapter, for he has only just realised his feelings for Legolas, only to have them thrown back in his face, poor thing.

Gimli, can't help but love him. I especially love what Legolas threatened to do if Gimli or Aragorn wager on him again. Something to the effect of chucking him in a barrel of ale, riding all the way to Erebor and back, with him bouncing behind and then pissing on his Pipeweed and not telling him. Classic! Legolas getting his own back.
:)

Author's Response:

Yes- you're right if course. It must have felt very lonely actually- and normally they would have each other but this misunderstnading has pushed them apart and Elladans realisation is quite complex because he has never wanted a man before. Actually at this point when I was writing it, it could very easily have gone with Elladan but Elrohir is a force of nature! What would have happened to him had Elladan truly fallen in love with Legolas and his back??

 



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 26, 2017 Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 11 The Hunger

I really love how you switched the sons of Elrond's characters, so Elladan acted like Elrohir and vice versa. Unfortunately this did not go down too well with Legolas once he realised he was wrong in his assertions as to who was who, for he believed they were playing him for a fool. Poor Legolas so much misunderstanding going on.
It was not the twin's fault at all.
Great reading! :)

Author's Response:

Ah- you're at THAT point now, Gabriel. I really like Elladan and I have to admit, I was playing with the idea of Legolas and Elldan as a pir but I'm afraid Elrohir just wasn't having any of that! So glad you are enjoying this still.



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 26, 2017 Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 12 Battle of the Pelennor Fields

Wow! Legolas is such a badass when he's angry even more so, and still giving the twins a very VERY cold shoulder.
My favourite part was Elladan in the midst of battle; such a smooth operator.
For an Elf who is quite temperate in demeanour he fights like an efficient killing machine.
I also like Elrohir, always his brother's shield. Always looking out for him, I guess that's the bond they share as twins, as if they are one soul. :D

Author's Response:

Yes- Legolas is really quite a different character when crossed- he feels really aggrieved in this chpater, liek they wwere toying with him and laughing at him. His silvan pride has been stirred and wounded here so he really wants to show them his metal.

That bond between the twins is, as you say, very important and powerful- it is both their refuge and their downfall- Elrohir's at least. You'll remember he sacrificed himself to Angmar for Elladan and so that is how the twisted memory of what happened with his mother took hold. That remains t haunt him.

Thank you for the reviews:)



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 18, 2017 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9

Yes I think Aragorn should hang his head for making Legolas think he had failed him.His selfish pursuits almost cost Legolas his life.

I wish Elrohir would tell someone. I know he feels ashamed of his memories and thoughts even if a part of it is implanted, but he just cannot go on like this, it will make him mad in the end.
Elladan is such a sweetheart. Such a source of strength and peace for his brother, Legolas and anyone else who needs it.
I love your Gimli, you write him so true to how he should be in character, such a gruff exterior but absolutely adores Legolas.
:D

Author's Response:

Don't worry, I make Aragorn remember his unfairness to Legolas MANY times and Gimli enjoys telling him off a lot throughout the res tof this fic! 

I'm afraid a lot of the conflict is EXACTLY as you identified! Because Erohir won't talk about this shameful memory, he does not understand it- if I say any more it will be a spolier so I'll just leave it there:)

I love writing Gimli - I find Pippin and Gimli the easiest, their voices are very strong and they are easy to talk to as a writer- they want to share!!



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 19, 2017 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10

Oh, my gosh, Ziggy, Little Legolas is so adorable, you write him so perfectly.

What's this! Elladan and Legolas having a moment. A rather beautiful moment, I might add. I'd be very interested to see whether anything more develops between these two.

Is there anyone not lusting after Legolas! :)

Author's Response:

I can't help writing everyone lusting after Legolas- but that's simply my own elf-worship!! I admit I could have gone either way with Elladan/Eorihr at this point but the characters had very definite views- again, no spoilers!!



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 09, 2017 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7

I think it would best to keep Legolas well away from the sea. The longing seems to put him in unnecessary danger.
Elrohir rides in like a knight in shining armour, takes Legolas into his charge, heals him and then takes advantage of him. Oh, Elrohir, tut tut.
Great stuff Ziggy! :D

Author's Response:

Oh -you're right in all the best bits now! Yes- Elrohir behaves REALLY badly but it haunts him terribly afterwards. He is rather magnificant though - I hope you could see the fanart that went with it- for some reason, my Apple won't show it. So glad you enjoyed this- I think it gets better- you've got some great sexy bits coming up.



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 14, 2017 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8

What would Elrohir do without Elladan. I notice Elladan is starting to put all the pieces together albeit, slowly, with the strange moods Elrohir has been in lately. Finally, thank the stars!
One of my favourite parts;

'It is like the Mazar-kut,' he said softly, and met the astonished Dwarf's deep brown gaze. 'The call in your heart for Ekhezd-dum, where Mahal first delved and the Seven Fathers sleep, awaiting the breaking of the world. 'He lifted three fingers of his left hand and then pressed them against the Dwarf's chest, over his heart. 'The fire in your heart that calls stone to stone is like the song the Elves hear that calls them home to Valinor, across the sea.

I love that Gimli was so astonished at an Elf knowing something of the Dwarfs' secrets. It also made Elrohir come across so wise.
Awesome Ziggy! :D

Author's Response:

What is so noce about your reviews, Gabriel, is that I m being reminded of things I had forgotten! I liked Elrohir's understanding of Khazad culture in this too- thank you for picking that out!!

ANd thank you for all these lovely reviews- makes my day ot get one of these:)



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed

I hope I'm reading this in the right sequence.
Ziggy, you write Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli so beautifully, I feel like I'm watching a movie. It's in the way you describe little details about each character and the relationships between them. Great stuff. :)

Author's Response:

The sequence is this:

Black Arrow

More Dangerous

Through a Glass

Deeper than Breathing/ also I have it titlted as Songs of Rohan on some sites

Sons of Thunder

Where the Shadows lie.

 

 

Hope that helps Gabriel.

Thank you for that very lovely comment- I admit I enjoy writing these three. They just feel right together and usually write themselves. They are different enough to give a really good dynamic.

I know you wrote this some time ago, but I love your style of writing. To me it almost borders on a type of poetry and I like the way you've taken a piece of the silmarillion, that not many, if any would bother to write about. I think Finarfin has been overlooked by many as a character you can explore. Keep up the great writing, albeit a small piece, it still made an impact. :)

I am new to fanfiction writing and this site but have always wanted to be a writer from childhood. I totally agree with and love that every writer has a vastly different style from the next, where would stories be with out it. I, like every other writer am passionate about feeding the flame of enjoyment to the readers to keep them spellbound by and glued to every word and sentence. I must confess that I have read one or two short stories and have been too shy to review or have not known what to say without it sounding ridiculous, that is until recently. I love that you have highlighted the reviewing process so hopefully readers out there will think more on giving their thoughts about a story in future.

I saw this on the Random Story window and had to read.
This is so awesome! Absolutely hilarious!
I'm not sure whether Huan was supposed to come across this way, but it seems he regards everyone around him as complete morons, like he's so bored with the whole situation, with this existence, maybe with Celegorm as well.
Can't wait to read more!

Curufin and Huan are so awesome together in this. A great laugh. They compliment each other perfectly, Huan should be Curufin's dog.
So much sarcasm and tongue-n-cheek comments. I also noticed a little competition or out-smarting going on between them.
I especially like Curufin's view of Huan, {Poodle} and everyone else's image of him as a huge Wolf. Is this because the Feanorions are just such hardened and aggressive warriors that a Wolf appears as a puppy?
So funny!
:D

Author's Response: Huan is an animal maia and can appear as a wolf at will; however, the brothers never see him that way. Must be quite frustrating for them really lol Thank you so much for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjopying the story :)

Beren is so pathetic, how he managed to survive the whole Sauron thing with Finrod is beyond me.
I honestly think one of the reasons Curufin bed him was because he's an easy target. Not much between the ears.
Love it!

Author's Response: Maybe Beren survived the Sauron thing because of Finrod - otherwise the werewolf would have killed him for sure, if he didn't get killed before that lol Thank you so much for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjopying the story :)

If it's not bad enough, that Beren is naive and rather pathetic, Luthien is a piece of work and so full of herself, she's so annoying. In a way I was glad Celegorm kidnapped her and kept her locked up in a tower. The less we see of her the better in my view.
Loved this story, such a good laugh.
:D

Author's Response: Luthien is definitely the boss in that relationship! Can't think why Celegorm was so smitten with her. Thank you so much for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :)

I've just read the scenes with Galadriel and her mirror and have got to say, the images while reading were fantastic, in fact the whole picture you created of Lothlorien was just beautiful. I do love Elrohir and Elladan too, such wonderful characters.

Author's Response:

Thank you Gabriel! I rarely get comments on Galadriel so this is extra nice. I think she is far more interesting than she appears in LOTR- she came over the ice with Fingolfin, went to Doriath and learned under Melian, then founded a kingdom of her own and which she is clearly in charge of!

Just finished reading the story, loved that whole situation with Elrond, Vilya and the ONE, so damn awesome and I also wanted to mention the beautiful sensual and mischievious relationship going on with Aragorn and Arwen. It was such a breath of fresh air to see these two barely be able to keep their hands off each other. And Legolas, Legolas, Legolas, what a sweetheart, so young and so easily swayed.

Author's Response:

How very lovely to get this review, Gabriel- thank you for seeing the Aragorn/Arwen thing going on as very few peope mention that and I really enjoyed writing a rather frustrated Arwen with a romantic Aragorn. He's going to have a bit of shock when she arrives in MT and expects him to stop worshipping her and become a proper husband- but I htink she is wise and clever and will sort everything out to her satisfaction.

 

Yes- Legolas. Love him so much in this!! Thank you as well for noticing the Rings- I think Tolkien created something wonderful and never got round to really explorin them because he ditched the One rather quickly:) I've got plans for Vilya;D

I know Aragorn is trying to remain chaste for Arwen's sake, but please he seriously needs to find some outlet for all that pent up desire, otherwise I feel for Arwen on their wedding night.
Who doesn't love Legolas. His lover Elwin; I would seriously like to know more and read more on him. If there is other fic's with him in it, I must have missed it. I remember seeing something about him dying, poor Leggy. I'll endeavour to read that one. :D

Ah yes, this was the first fanfic I ever wrote, back in fall of 2002. Seems like ancient history now. My inspiration was trying to come up with a "canon" way for Aragorn to have a relationship with Legolas that would still fit with his love for Arwen. Elwin was a creation to give Legolas a tragic backstory, who then took on a life of his own. When I first wrote this, a number of people wanted more about him. So, I wrote Dragon Fever, which talks about the beginning of Legolas' and Elwin's relationship, and then I wrote Time Enough for Love, which takes place after Dragon Fever but before the events in Ohtarnil. Thanks for comments!
