I read this story and the two versions of the sequel on another site. So tragic and beautiful. While I usually don't like stories where Aragorn is evil, I just couldn't stop reading this story! The characterizations of all the characters were excellent. I love how Haldir became a symbol of hope to Legolas in the sequel.
Can I just say that this story has at times really turned my stomach and made me hate Aragorn with a passion. Then you've let Legolas escape, and made me cry with this chapter - I am so nervous as to what the future holds for this tale, but so very hopeful that it has a happy ending ... I'm just glad it's completed and I don't have to wait to find out. The only thing preventing me from discovering the end is the speed of my reading ...
