Here is Chapter 8. I hope you all enjoy. I know the rating on this story is "M", but as I continue to think about it and how I want the story to progress I may bump it down a level soon. I marked it as "M" just in case, but if something happens I'll keep ya'll posted on if I change that.

I have decided this story will be broken into three stories just like the movies and the books. I feel that it will progress better that way. I'm not sure how many chapters each story will be. I hope everyone is enjoying the story. I am really enjoying the feedback that I am getting from everyone. I greatly appreciate it.

I've also had some suggestions about different points of view during the story. Would anyone be interested in reading other points of view every so often? Just let me know what you think.

Enjoy!!!

Here's the next chapter. Some events may have changed slightly compared to the movie. Just going with the general events for the story, modifying when need be. Sorry if this chapter seems up and down or not so good. I wanted a few different things to happen during this chapter to set up for other stuff in the future. Please leave some feedback. :)

Thank for the feedback and reviews. I really do appreciate it. Even though reviews are mixed, that's ok. I will still update the story. Please keep in mind that this story is a work of FICTION. Fiction is make believe. I'm making it my own based on an idea that I had. I hope you enjoy!

Author's Note:
Please keep in mind that this is just FICTION! I know there are things that Tolkien created that refer to half elf/half human in Middle Earth. This is just an idea and I'm going with it. I greatly appreciate all of you that are reading and reviewing the story. I am also appreciative of those that are following the story or have made this story one of their favorites. It means a lot to me since this is the first thing I've published on here. Thank you again for all of the support. Any reviews and feedback is greatly appreciated.

This story will come to a close just as the first movie does. The second story will pick up with the second movie. Just giving you a heads up. I'm not sure how many more chapters this one will be yet.

Here is Chapter 11. I hope you enjoy! Please leave some feedback.

P.S.: This isn't my best chapter, but I had to move forward. I apologize if this isn't a good one.

Here's the next chapter. I'm not sure how many more chapters there will be, but there probably won't be anymore than 20 total. Some of these next chapters will be key for Legolas and Ithilwen. I hope you enjoy!

Also, some of the chapter is supposed to be in italics for some things. I have a hard time formatting on here so I apologize now.

Hope you're enjoying the story. Only a few more chapters left of the first story and then I'll start the second one. I will keep everyone posted about the story and when it will officially end, then when the next one will start. Let me know what you think of the story. Leave some feedback.

The story is dwindling down. There's only one more chapter to go after this one. I'm feeling really sad that the first one is coming to an end, but it is. The second will probably be up not long after the first is over and published.

Thank you for all the readers and the reviewers. I'm loving the reviews that I'm getting. thank you all so much!!

PS: This chapter does get a tad dark. Just giving you the warning now. It might be a little disturbing, but it's only fiction.

Enjoy the chapter!

Alright everyone, here is the last chapter for story one. I can't believe I've actually completed one. I usually don't complete them, but I'm excited to see that I have. I will begin working on the second story very soon. I'm not sure when I'll have it posted, but I'm hoping it'll be soon.

Enjoy the last chapter AND....let me know what ya think in a review!
