You did a wonderful job with this story. Your descriptions of the sea longing, and Gimli dreading both Legolas leaving and his staying and suffering more were very nicely done. It was sad the way you talked about Arwen's inevitable fading after Aragorn died. Picturing her riding away from Minas Tirith gave me a shiver, especially when you talked about how she had already left, emotionally speaking. I had always believed that Legolas had asked Gimli to go with him to Valinor, but this is an alternate idea that is just as plausible. Very good and emotional story. Loved it.
Author's Response: Aw, thank you. I always get sad when I think of the fate of the Elves, and the Sea Longing, and I'm glad I could share some of those emotions. Thank you again.
This is very good. I love the description of the dry leaves and the impending "death" of Imladris. Even though we all knows that Elrond will be happy in Valinor with his wife, his sadness here is very poignant.
Author's Response: I actually wrote this at a very dark time for me too, and so it was easy to see things the way he does in this story. Looking back on it, I'm very proud of it. Thank you for reading!
A very interesting AU. I knew this was going to be very sad going in, and I was not wrong. You are dong a good job describing it. Legolas's grief is particularly sad. I'm looking forward to more.
Author's Response: Thank you! This is one of my favorite stories, and I'm glad you liked it! More to come soon, I promise!
The last sentence was very sad, and of course, very true. I'm glad Arwen tried to make Legolas feel better instead of blaming him for not being able to keep his promise. to keep Estel safe I'm also happy that Pippin will be going to Valinor. Hopefully, he and Legolas will find peace there.
I really loved the interplay with Legolas and Gimli. Those two are so funny together. Gimli is good at the verbal exchange, but I have always felt Legolas could easily beat him at that. However, when Gimli resorts to physical tricks, like throwing Legolas into the water, the elf definitely has his hands full.
I also like the opening with Ãƒâ€°owyn. Great beginning to the story.
Author's Response: Everyone can use a good dunking now and then...prideful Elvish princes especially--or so Gimli tells me, anyway... Much appreciated review, thank you!
I am truly honored that I am one of the authors you dedicated this story to. It was amusing, and I liked it. I can just picture Legolas in the tree taunting two very frustrated twins. I liked that they called him Greenleaf. Also I liked that you mentioned how close Legolas is to the trees, hiding him even when it looked like he would be discovered. Having Legolas keep saying, "Say it" over and over was a funny little touch. Again thank you so much, Yun, for the dedication. I'll see you at Naice a Nilme. :o)
Author's Response: I am the one who is honoured to have been able to dedicate my story to you sivan and kasmi. Althou kasmi hasn\'t seen it i think. But it\'s my way of saying thankyou and well done for your stories Yun
