Oh, I like this! It was really sad, a excellent bit of writing though.
Author's Response: Hey, I'm only a year late on this response. :o) I missed the review somehow. Please forgive me. I'm so happy that you like the story. It is sad, but considering what the elves of Mirkwood went through, I couldn't see the royal family as going unscathed. I'm also happy you like my writing. Thanks.
Oh my, how beautiful! I always enjoy stories of Legolas as an elfling, but this one was very touching. Pain of losing one child, the joy of another...wow!
Author's Response: Thank you. I love elfling Legolas, which is why I've written several stories of him as a child. I'm glad you liked the balance between sorrow and joy. It's the rhythm of life.
