Really great story! I really, really enjoyed it! It definitely made me cry. You did a very good job painting pictures and evoking emotions with your words. I was hard pressed not to burst into tears during some scenes, and I only refrained because I think the people sitting around me would have found it a little odd. This story is definitely going on the favorites list!

It's a brilliant story. Well written, emotional, fantastic, But it misses out one important Tolkien-Verse fact, that men (and the apparent sub species of hobbit) do not stay within the circles of the world as elves, dwarves and ents do when they die, but depart it to where only Illuvatar and they may go.

I read this story actually many years ago and, though I can see you got more comments on it already than any other story I read, I must say I fully understand why. It is a heart wrenching story that made me cry even as I read it a second time now and also made me think and I wanted to thank you for sharing it.

So many different and powerful raw emotions washed through me. While reading this piece I felt Legolas' anger claw and rise up my chest then suddenly a poignant and tangible sadness overwhelmed me and pooled my eyes with tears. I cannot claim to have felt exactly what and how Legolas felt because I have yet to experience what we all inevitably will someday but I was able to feel a great deal of his sorrow and pain.
This breathtaking piece has given me hope, hope that I will be able to have the strength to endure when my time comes to be in Legolas' position. This work struck a chord in my heart hard and I will never forget the values I've learned from reading this.
Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, Elrond, and Galadriel were all perfectly portrayed and I felt as If I were reading an extension of Tolkien's epilogue of what became of the remaining members of the fellowship except what set this piece apart was the distinct writing style that was very personal and intimate.
Thank you for posting this beautiful piece and I look forward to reading more of your other works and reviewing them as well.

Beautiful story - absolutely beautiful.

Thank you for the epilogue: I feel significantly less depressed now. The part with Legolas weeping next to Gimli's grave broke my heart. :( /3

read this as a break from studying. Now my homework is tear-stained..

This is the ONE story that almost made me cry. And for me . . . . I NEVER cry, reading a book, watching a movie, ect. It was . . . . heartbreaking. And amazingly done. I loved the epilogue.

This is painful and wonderful. It was deep and stirring and it gave me tears and happiness both, and inspiration to write, as all great works do. Death in the Undying lands is one of the saddest ideas I could ever consider in this universe, but still, one of the most valuable. Thank you for sharing such an amazing, deeply touching story.

I don't know whether to call you a bastard or a beautiful, gorgeous, blessed craftsman. Because this was beautiful, and terrible, and painfully sad. I literally sat here with tears running down my face, all snotty and gross sobbing, until my family started to ask me if I was all right. And honestly? I can't say that I'm all right. And I'm not happy. But there's a part of me that is very, very glad I read this fic. It was extremely well-written, and it told a story I needed to hear. I loved it deeply, even though it made me sob and cry. Thank you for this beautiful, horrible story, damn you! :')

I cried the manliest of tears throughout, you truly are an amazing writer.
| elisa 12/11/12 . chapter 4
This story was totally worth reading, I cried but I still loved it. I seriously don't see how it can get any better, but that's my opinion.
| elisa 12/11/12 . chapter 1
So very sad, it had me crying before Gimli even died... I'm not sure if I should applaud or curse. It was f**king awesome, now I need to go find a few tissues.
| MaliceArchangela 11/25/12 . chapter 4
This was a truly beautiful story. I was actually crying reading it.
I don't usually cry when reading fanfiction, and even in written books and movies, it still takes quite a bit.
With your story, I was crying partway through the first chapter.
I loved it.
Even though you wrote this quite some time ago, I hope that you continue to write such beautiful stories.
Thank you for this masterpiece.

Though this wad written some time ago I still had to drop a review and say this is beautiful. The best story written about their friendship and probably the perfect ending to the Fellowship. An amazing job!
