| Shirley Wilbur 5/22/13 . chapter 83
What a wonderful, well written, well plotted, story! I am so sorry it has ended - the way it should, and with style, but I will miss reading the next chapter. I really was sorry Legolas had to die - it would have been so nice for him to see the return of stars, and the natural balance being restored. However, I certainly understand that he probably needed to. After all, he would have nothing to live for once his vow had been completed. And I am assuming the chance to sail was long gone. None the less, I was sorry to see him go.
Very well done story! The main reason I have kept coming to this web site. You really should offer it in printed form. It would be a nice book, one that would be a good addition to LOTR fiction and one that would be nice to re-read at one's whim.
Thank you so much for the enjoyment I have received looking forward to, and reading, your story.
Now, for your next one -?

Congratulations! This has been a very good story and I loved that it was so long. So many emotional moments throughout. Thanks, too, for the Aragorn/Eowyn match-up. My favorite part in this last chapter was Aragorn's farewell to Legolas. It made me teary-eyed. But yes, like a lot of your other readers I am hoping for a Middle-earth Miracle in your next story, with Legolas somehow being resurrected. Real life can be so depressing! Anyways, great story. I hope you keep writing. We need writers like you in the fan-dom.

Last night I finished reading you this masterpiece for the first time and was left speechless. Fortunately, I'm better off now and I've got just the same thing as all those many others have to say. This tale, my dear Freddie, lived with me and I'd wait each week for it to be updated and on every other day I'd keep making up of what would happen.
And now imagine the force on my heart when I have to finally read " The End".
Whoa! Time I return back to my own life now!
You character of Legolas is excellent though I , like many others, can't help wishing that you did show us a glimpse of the peace he attained. Is he truly in that quiet atmosphere of death or has he resurrected in Valinor with those he loves? Are you leaving this as a mystery for us.. however, I'm curious of what you are personally having for him ( must reply!)
I am certain that Aragorn will be a great king! Eomer a great lord. Eowyn a worthy queen... and perhaps Ciaran when his days come a true leader like his father.
I want to re-read the whole thing again and I would when I have the time.. I must.
You are a very talented writer and if you start on your own books ( have you? ) I bet you'll be a best-seller in no time. Talented writers don't come easily so I know you are one. Those conversations, the descriptions and sequences of events ( you need to improve this though :/)
I'm waiting till the day I can read your own works.
You Fan Forever!
( pls. reply)

Now come the days of the King.
And may they be blessed.

I'm speechless... the light has returned

Wonderful story! I know it was silly, but I kept hoping for Legolas to be revived. I hate that the elf did not see Aragorn become king. I'm glad he never found out that Aragorn killed his father, even if said father was a vessel for Sauron! I think Thranduil would have preferred death to being used in such a manner. Your writing is fantastic! I like the fact that there is love between Aragorn and Legolas without it becoming slash. I sometimes read slash, but a lot of it is too graphic for me. By the way, was it really necessary to kill Thranduil in the sequel to Mirkwood Plague? After all they went through! Still love you. Please write more stories.

that was a beautiful end. I really enjoyed this story and I hope we can read more of your amazxing work. keep writing and see you next time
| Dark Lord Morthanian 5/17/13 . chapter 83
No no no. No. No no no no no. What do I do now? I have nothing left to read outside of library books! I don't want to wait for the next story!
Anyway *grins* to the review (I know, you already have someone who uses *xxx* in their comments. I can still try though)! Minas Tirith…Eight Years Later… *heart pounds in excitement*
*page scrolls to 'The End.* *falls to floor in shock* It's finally over, isn't it. Two years and it's finally over. Legolas is well and truly dead (not even a conversation in the dreamland or with the Vala as a median). Eldarion is born (maybe a sequel or a few short stories?), and the world is at peace. Mostly. The tribes of Harad are still warring, elves and dwarves are nowhere to be found, and Orcs remain in Mordor. But now is a time for rest, no?
-Until next time, Dark Lord Morthanian - a boy who truly enjoyed the book, and one who can't wait to see what the future holds - signing out.

That's depressing. Why does it have to end!? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?!
| Haku Yuukinari 5/17/13 . chapter 83
This story touched my heart. I laughed and cried when I read the story. Thank you very for writing such a wonderful and filled with hope story from the bottom of my heart. My best wishes for Middle Earth, Aragon and his wife, their children, all the people, and for the wonderful author of this story.

"And the stars, Legolas." His voice filled with sudden wonder as he remembered nightly looking up into the skies and admiring the pricks of light. "I have seen the stars; shining dots of light in a clear sky so black that I believe it to be infinite. Every chance I get I sit beneath them and think of you. You never got the chance to show me them yourself. I wish you could have. Truly I do.
Aragorn, King of the Reunited Kingdoms of Men, climbed to his feet. "Goodbye. I will not be so long in coming next time, Father."
OK- so I sobbed my way through this, freddie, thinking how this story has evolved over the telling, and how you kept your integrity in spite of readers hoping, wishing, pleading that you work an unrealistic and incredible miracel- but you didnt and you were right (I was one of those absolutely disbeleivng that Legolas could be dead). What a truly remarkable feat too to have written such a grim tale with such a deft hand, such wonderful characterisation and above all, a fabulous plot.
You had really wrought a wonderful and fascinating story that utterly kept me enthralled and riveted so that I was thinking about it even when I was not reading. Bravo my dear!

Over half a million words later...complete! My god that is an epic story! Fair play! Is it too much to ask for another..? :)
Thank you so much for writing this story..the updates have been eagerly awaited each week for almost two years!
All the best

Oh my god, it's over...
*keels over sideways and starts crying*
This story was so consistently amazing, I'm torn between being sad that it's over and screaming and waving and making everyone read it because so often long stories get abandoned :D
Oh my god though. Seriously. I don't think I've kept up to date on a long story like this before. Usually if I'm following something long, I wait for a few chapters to accumulate then read it in chunks, but this one... It's like the second the email comes I go 'AAAH! MUST READ! WHO NEEDS A LEVELS?!' haha.
And the ending was fabulous. What am I saying. The whole thing was brilliant.
Ugh. I don't know what to do now :D
| world-classgeek 5/17/13 . chapter 83
Whatwhatwhat? Its done? Wha...no...
it was a good ending. I really really really like this story!
| me 4evaful 5/17/13 . chapter 83
Wow - that end was phenomenal... I really can't believe you've finished it! The entire story was magnificent, well crafted, and amazingly written. I liked how you had Aragorn and Eowyn get together at the end - it makes sense... But yeah, I really love this story. It was amazing, and I'm actually slightly sad you've finished it... This was one of the first stories I ever came across on Fanfiction, and it's over now... But it was amazing, and that ending was perfect.
