I love this ! (:
"One day, he would follow that sun. One day, he would seek the West."
That bit just broke my heart, but in the sweet way. Really awesome, 3.

Wow! That's as impressively as "Seas of Fate" (I could guess from the title it would be a sequel, and I'm glad you wrote on). Both stories gave me goosebumps, but I've got the feeling that this one would have an even better atmosphere, if it was written in first person like "Seas of Fate". Maybe from Legolas' point of view, there are already more of his feelings described here. And probably that's the reason why Imrahil seems strange to me in "Seaworthy" compared to his appearance in the first story. He isn't better or worse, just different...
I knew how you would interpret the tale of Amroth and Nimrodel as soon as Imrahil mentioned them and I really like your reference to it!

I love Firefox- I can actually review on this website now without getting blocked. Now- to find the itme to catch up...
But in the meantime thank-you for this lovely, bittersweet tale. Imrahil (so lovely to see him after his loss in Lamiel's TPD) and Legolas proved to be electric during their exchange. The metaphors, the things unsaid, the silences- and what WAS said. A lovely, winding tale.

Hi, I really don't mean any pressure, but no updates for " Land of light and Shadows"?

What a wonderful story. It is a very worthy follow-up to "Sea of Fate".
I loved the explanation Imrahil gave Legolas about why he shouldn't sail the little ship he worked so long and hard on out to sea. The idea that the sea will not accept someone who has a master other than it was very thought-provoking. It fit perfectly with Legolas's two masters: the desire to sail and the love he has for his friends and Middle-earth. I liked that he slowly came to realize the wisdom of Imrahil's words, as opposed to 'getting it' right away. I think it had much more meaning that way.
Another beautifully written story, as always.

Very nicely done
It isn't often that I read Lord of the Rings fanfiction anymore. You have done an amazing job.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

*applause* What a moving and mighty fic this was. Short, but powerful nonetheless. Magnificent writing here as well. The emotion is well felt and never distant. And I love your Imrahil. Such a wise man he is; able to see Legolas' heart better than the elf himself. The concept of Legolas building a ship that reflected his own heart is brilliant. Great idea.
Once again I'm reminded just why you are in my top three favorite authors. Your writing reflects Tolkien's work so well and brings the reader closer to the characters we know and love. Thank you for sharing!
*dumps load of carrots on Thundera's doorstep* Now... feed those other bunies! *grin*

What a lovely, bittersweet, sad tale... I wasn't quite sure where you were going with it, but the end result is just perfect. Imrahil is wise... his words cut, but not with intent to cripple. I really like him here. And Legolas is excellent too: conflicted, confused, and in the end resigned. Imrahil's description of the ship as being like Legolas was just perfect!
Thank you for such a powerful tale.

Half-hearted endeavours usually end in failure no matter how much labour you put in - there's a moral to this tale.
Glad to see that you are still writing great stories.

Hey Thundera, its the Old Imp here. I loved your story, it made me sad but I always enjoy the dialog between the characters, it would seem that Legolas was much older than Imrahil but couldn't sort out his feelings and Imrahil helped him, thank goodness! I will have to read this other story I don't know if I have but this is so real it could of happened right? as always I say again I simply love your style of writing!
