Wonderful story, truly a credit to people who actually want to write decent fanfiction. I encountered this story about six months ago, and thus I know that the chance of an update is fading rapidly, if not gone. If you do have time though, please write more! I love your writing style,it has me hanging at the edge of my seat.

I know it probably wont be for a very long time but please don't ever abandon this story. I have spent all day reading it as it is one of my favourites (even if it has no ending at the present time!)
I know you're still active on the site and updating/posting stories so I continue to hope you will return to this one one day? (While I think of it, your "During a journey in the dark" is another work of art I hope you don't leave unfinished?)
Never doubt my amazement and awe at your writing skills!

Love it. Gimli's my favorite of all the lotr characters so I love the dwarf and elf interaction.
He has an affliction and cannot endure your glory, Faensul

If I haven't mentioned it before in a different review I tell you again: Your writing is execellent! You make situations come alive that much that during those fighting scenes I hold my breath, I could feel the sun burning on my skin while riding through the desert, I felt myself become thursty when Legolas and Gimli managed to escape and where hiding in that cave and now you find me biting my nails, which are already very short, finding that you stopped updating this story. Sigh, me is very sad! Will Aragons plan succeed? Have Imrahils men reached Gondor and Rohan and what action will those kingdoms take? Will they two send men? Will Imrahil reach them in time? And what about Gimli and Legolas?
I am desperatly hoping that you will continue this story! But in the meantime I'll read what else you have written!

Just wanted to see if you were still active around here! Always loved your LOTR fics for years. Still wish I knew more about what happens with Land of Light and Shadows. Also want to read more of your Journey in the Dark! Such good work, very kind and holding to the original cannon while expressing such individual storytelling. Like it! Hope you are still writing! :)

I'm not sure if you even still check your reviews for this site, but I wanted to drop you a line. I hadn't thought about this story for YEARS- I stumbled across it a long time ago during my LOTR phase, and I remember loving it. Then today while talking with a friend, I was suddenly reminded of your story.
It took me a while to find it again- I couldn't remember the title or the author, just the plot...when I finally managed to dig it up I admit I was a little disappointed to see it was still unfinished, but as I scanned some of the older chapters I remembered why I got hooked in the first place.
I do a little writing myself, so believe me when I say that I know sometimes a story just gets away from you, the inspiration or interest dies, or life just gets too busy. However, since this was such an intricate story and you obviously put an enormous amount of time into it, I guess I was wondering if you ever did finish? If you did, I'd love to read it, for old time's sake- let me know if a completed version exists somewhere out there!

| UPdate 8/28/10 . chapter 27

| Jeriminah 8/28/10 . chapter 1
I would pay you 30 bucks to finish this story.
I mean, that's the retail price of an expensive new hardcover book. And I am terribly cheap. Please tell me you will finish this story eventually! I've been a fan of it for almost ten years now!
| anonymous 8/11/10 . chapter 38
Oh, oh, oh. The suspense. Please update?
| anon 4/17/10 . chapter 38
So, I just spent the last several hours reading this fic and it was simply amazing. To be honest, I only started reading LOTR fanfic during this week and your story was the one that started it. Your writing is just amazing, magical in the regards that everything flows so well and I can easily say, this is the best fanfic I ever read.
With that, this was an amazing tale. I know it's been five years since you updated but I hope you will come back to this tale some time. You left us off at a cliffhanger and well, I would love to know more. There are so many loose ends still, and so much still to happen! There's still the final battle (and while there are finally allies, many are still injured (hearing, broken arms, etc)) and I wonder at how the Prince will come in along with the missing scouts. Ah, and of course poor Legolas and Gimli.
I'm really poor with words but let it be known that this anon will keep on waiting for any update at all.
| Phantom Shadowwalker 4/15/10 . chapter 38
Wow! Awesome story! I love how you've made the Haradrim real people with a real culture rather than just the slavering villains of cannon. You've even managed to make me like Dashnir! I'm not sure why either. I suppose because I love strategy. Anyway, great work! Don't leave it there though please? Please do give us more soon! I can't wait to hear how this will turn out!
P.S. Legolas is amazing!

Hello! I've recently become quite interested in LOR once again so I've searched quite a few fics. I must say you're one of my favourite authors so far because you stay true to the characters and you weave such interesting plots. I'm almost finished with 'While the Ring Went South' but I got detracted from it for a couple of weeks due to RL and now I've found this awesome tale, 'Land of Light and Shadow'. I'm afraid I'm going to be reading both stories at the same time now and so reviewing both at the same time XD;
I love what you did in 'WRWS' since I love when the Fellowship is still gathered and the adventures they lived in the short time (well it was short in the film) they were together. I've always liked Boromir and it's so sad that he's often depicted as a weak or evil man in fics just because the ring broke his will faster. So, yeah, I like your fic because, as I said, you stay true to the characters. I love your portray on Legola's and Gimli's friendship and their childish antics as well as the others' reactions to it.
As for this story I'm ejoying it thoroughly and I can see you put quite the effort and time in characterization and plot. I can't wait to read more )
