Title: Chapter 8: Chapter Eight- Mute Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Ah, finally the kiss. I can't wait to see what happens next. I've been wanting to see these two express their feelings.

Author's Response: Finally is right! I have been dying for them to kiss for forever, and yet how it happened truly surprised me. The next chapter will be coming soon with the aftermath of that impulse! Glad you enjoyed and thanks for reviewing!

I can imagine Faramir would have felt strongly to protect his brother's good name. I think this relates to real life also. It seems people don't have much to say until someone does something wrong and then it's talked about for weeks. It's unfortunate the positive is not looked at with the same attention. Good story.

Author's Response: thanks! it annoys me also that the good things go unnoticed, while the bad is always what gets the gossip. i think we need to celebrate the good more, as well! thanks again for the review!

Title: Chapter 1: Breaking the Rule Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
This one is different. Wizards obviously need a lot of rules. I especially like the Lady Gaga punishment, though I'm not so sure she could be considered a muggle. Oh and BTW, the NEW Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando is pretty cool. Great set up. It looks just like Diagon Ally and the rides are great. I ate my first traditional English breakfast (blood sausage...yuk). If you like Harry Potter, you'll like this place.

Author's Response: Gaga is borderline muggle and witch/wizard lol. i know about the park. I just have to have money to go there lol. hopefully when i start working next year i can make enough to go there

Deeper than Breathing by ziggy Rated: NC-17 starstar [Reviews - 76]
Summary: above all else, elves have a gift with song. When Eomer meets with the remaining fellowship, he sees an opportunity to rouse Théoden and fight off the dead hand of Saruman. He persuades Legolas to accompany him back to Edoras while Aragorn and Gimli find the hobbits. Legolas has an important task- to reach Théoden, to convince him to rouse the Riders and to lead them against Saruman. But Eomer is arrested immediately they arrive and it will not be long before Grima has Legolas similarly incarcerated. Eomer becomes confused and fascinated.

Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 11 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I am thoroughly enjoying this story. I am in love with your portrayal of Legolas. He is wild and unpredictable. It is a side of him I have not seen before and it makes perfect sense. I am so glad you decided to continue with your story and cannot wait to read more. You are a wonderful writer and I am hooked.

Author's Response: Thank you L8Bleumr -that view of Legolas comes from his irritating cheerfulness on Caradhras, and then he stops singing at Nimrodel and cannot translate the lament for Gandalf from sorrow, and then is so light hearted at other times. He changes quickly and of course Tolkien himself has Gandalf say the Mirkwood elves are 'more dangerous and less wise' than the Noldor Rivendell elves. As you say, it makes perfect sense!! You are very kind to say such nice things and I am flattered that another writer whose work I like, thinks so too.Just for you then. Next chapter.

Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 12 Pippin Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I usually know what to say when I review but you have left me speechless. The interaction between all of the characters is so genuine. I find myself wishing that more of these moments between them all were in the books or in the movies. Legolas and Gimli are superb. Then you throw in the Hobbits and it is like the story within the story. I can't say enough. From one author to another... I bow with hand over heart. You are a true artist ziggy.

Author's Response: Well... that was so nice it left me a bit speechless. Thank you. I am flattered. I suppose Tolkien focused mostly on the hobbits and I always felt a bit starved for the others. I like the gap fillers and Pippin's voice is very strong in my head. A few more of those coming up but the next chapter is very hard for Legolas.

Title: Chapter 13: Chapter 13 Saruman Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
The end of this chapter left me heartbroken. Eomer has tried to leave it as it is but he is too deeply involve with his heart. I loved that Gimli was the one to intervene and how the fellowship gathered around Legolas to comfort him. Still, I am sad that Eomer got pushed aside once again. Every emotion, every description, every mental scene came across in true living color for me. It is not often that I read something that stays with me as if I just stepped from a movie theater. Your story is one of those rarities that has moved me with every chapter. Awesome!!!

Author's Response: Ah, Legolas is in shock but he is a very gentle soul and never forgets his lovers. Wait and see. Proise to update this weekend if I can.

Title: Chapter 14: Chapter 14 The Palantir Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I guess I hadn't realized before that everyone saw the vision of Mirkwood burning. What a horrible thing to have to witness. Your story is coming along nicely. I'm glad to see Legolas can still find comfort even after Saruman's cruel words. Nicely written, comforting scene in the woods. I think they both needed to soothe each others minds, among other things.

Author's Response: Yes, I still cringe when I think about this myself. I really didn't know that was going to happen before I wrote it but it had to be painful otherwise Saruman would not have had his revenge. I did wonder about making Saruman more discrete but it just couldn't happen...thank you for the review. I liked Eomer being so ready to help Legolas but feeling shut out, and then Legolas going to him.

Title: Chapter 15: Chapter 15 The Sons of Thunder Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I love the way you describe the turmoil Aragorn is experiencing over the palantir and taking the Paths of the Dead. And also, Elrohir's reaction to Legolas. It seems only natural that he might be apprehensive about a Wood elf. I am curious to see where this leads. Will they have a confrontation? Will he see that Legolas is indeed a true friend and not the savage that he surely has been led to believe the silvan elves to be? I hope he brings word of Mirkwood which might ease Legolas' worried mind. Very interesting chapter. Leaves me wanting more as always.

Author's Response: I am so glad you picked up on that. Elrohir is very complex in this. There is only one chapter left in this and Elrohir remains suspicious I'm afraid. I have always felt that Tolkien neglected Legolas and Gimli rather- and when the Grey Company arrives, surely they would have had some news? So I wanted to highlight the sacrifice they both make to stay with Aragorn- there is only one small bit in the book where they even mention this but it hints at vast unspoken emotions. But you are spot on at identifying Elrohir as a key character in this- I spent some time refining his part in this chapter.

*hehe* I feel like was just called upon to respond to the teachers question and got the answer right. Extra credit for figuring out Elrohir. LOL Love ya Ziggy.

Title: Chapter 16: Chapter 16 The Choice Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
First of all, love the way Elrohir fishes for information about Legolas and his intentions to follow Aragorn, and then Merry speaking up and defending him was most precious. But the best part by far was the exchange between Legolas and Gimli, the promise to revisit certain places, insuring their undying friendship. The other thing you touch upon that was never given much thought is Legolas' realization of what it is like to live a mortal life. We only ever think of Arwen and her choice. But for Legolas to struggle over the choice to heed Gladriel's words or honor an oath to Aragorn had to have been a very tough thing to swallow. I believe his choice was set from the moment the fellowship left Rivendell. He would follow Aragorn regardless. But to have glanced into his future would of course make him feel as though his days were numbered, hence making him closer to mortal men then elves once he heard the gulls call. This is by far the best, most honest depiction of not only Legolas but all the characters you have portrayed. I hope you will continue with writing more stories for I enjoy your work immensely. Your talent is truly a gift and thank you for sharing it. Always a fan, Moe.

Author's Response: As always, you pick up on all those little signals for the future! But I am so glad you picked up on Gimli and Legolas too- that is the most important and constant thing in Legolas' life right now with all the uncertainty. You are right of course, he is destined the moment he sets out from Rivendell, from Mirkwood almost- he cannot turn back, not in his character. You say such nice things, thank you. A new story up next week, just for you and Ladyjane and Melusine.

Your enthusiasm and sentiment for both author and director are very evident. I think you speak for many of us who are fans of both books and movies.

Author's Response: Thank you =) I've noticed some people only like one, but I find that I adore them equally, and I was thinking "where would we be without Tolkien?" It wasn't really supposed to be a poem, I have some better poetry coming later, but I just wanted to get my thoughts and thanks out =)

Title: Chapter 1: Galadriel Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
This is a side of Galadriel I haven't seen before. Most of the time she is portrayed as being wise and all knowing, giving her advice. But you have shown her in her own personal struggle with the knowledge of the ring and how it could seduce her even before Frodo arrives to offer it to her. I'm sure she would have known about it beforehand and it probably would have plagued her mind often. Very good. I liked it.

Author's Response: Yes, this one was really hard to write, because I had to slip into the mind of someone who was wise and powerful and mostly kind of aloof, and see her as vulnerable and then write that. I am glad that you liked it, and thank you for reviewing! =)

Well, I liked it so let me tell you why. I see Eomer as Eowyn's protector. They have both been through much in their lives. Now she is throwing caution to the wind, pining for Aragorn who her brother knows nothing about. He is a stranger and threatens to come between Eomer and his sister, the only bloodline he has left. He does not want to lose that connection, especially in times of war when family is the one thing that binds you to who you used to be.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! That is the way I wanted it to be interpreted, and I see that I have done an adequate job. I am very glad that you enjoyed it, and thank you for telling me why. It helps me to know what I did right. =)

Unrelenting Love by luthien85 Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 42]

Haldir and Legolas were fast friends in their youth and spend their time together. One unfortunate incident involving Legolas' younger sister, Lothestel left a bitter taste in Haldir's mouth.

Now years had passed and a tragedy struck Mirkwood. Legolas' brother Gollon Penarn who was the crown prince was murdered by Orcs. To ensure the safety of his people, the new crown prince, Legolas proposed an alliance with the elves of Lorien. Lord Celeborn accepted the alliance with another gesture, the marriage of his Marchwarden to the Princess of Mirkwood.

Lothestel agreed to the marriage without getting to know her betrothed. Much to her surprise and dismay, her wedding night came and with it Haldir.

Could they put their animosity aside to help save the two kingdom? Will true love ever come to them and prevail in the end?

This is Unrelenting Love...

I knew that sneaky little elleth would pull something like this. Lothestel is like a skiddish cat. One wrong move and she's out of there. Haldir's gonna have to do some sweet talking to get her to see it was not his fault. Nice to see an update. Hope the next one will come sooner.

Author's Response: She didnt do it on purpose i think. People do stupid things when they're in love and she really wanted to convince haldir that she loves him and he loves her back but alas, Haldir's heart belongs to another. I hope to have the next update sometime tomorrow :) now that school hasnt been so crazy, i can focus on writing :)

From reading the summary, it sounds like an interesting story. A lot of humor in the epilogue. I laughed through most of it. I can just imagine Legolas' face as he discovers it was his sister he was spying on. But the funniest thing was Legolas laughing like an elleth. Very immature and cute at the same time. A side of Leg we don't see very often, him in his youth. Very funny. I hope you continue with the story.
