Nicely done. I enjoyed it.
| SofiaB chapter 33 . 7/9/2006
Singing odes to spoons... fellowship of the pipe... love it.
The ending was... I have mixed emotions of it.
I think you handled it pretty well. The whole bit with Legolas telling Gimli about his past relationship was fitting for the Legolas you created. But the other part of me wanted more of a.. I don't know, happy ending?
The story is well done and I've enjoyed reading it.
Just out of curiosity, do you plan to write more lord of the rings fan fiction?

excellent, brilliant, thought-provoking, deep, touching... I could go on, but I feel too braindead to think of more adjectives. One thing I think that you did an exceptionally good job on was character depth. I can't wait until you update though. I get the feeling that Amoran is just on the brink of realizing her feelings. I actually think that the story might work if you simply allowed her to leave, and then continue the story. Feel free to ignore this suggestion though. I think that it is very refreshing, the way that you make the characters seem so realistic, and give their emotions such depth. I believe that that is what really sets this apart from many other stories that I have read about Legolas falling in love with a mortal. However, I think that the story is begining to drag, simply becuase the arcs are not very distinct. I appreciate the fluid effect that this creates, but whether it's because you stopped updating at such a critical point, or because the plot is moving rather slowly, there are some points where I find it repetitious and...forced.
Please do not interpret my remarks negatively. I still believe that this is honestly one of the best fics that I have found on in a long time. I understand what you are doing, and I really think that it is a very nice change from the norm. It is well written, and you have obviously put it quite a bit of effort into this. I live only to serve and be helpful, and I really hope that I have not completely misinterpreted your style and meanings. I know that because this is meant to be an angsty piece, this sorrowful, constantly suppressing air is necessary, however, when I say that the story drags, I simply mean that it might be nice to simply put in an interlude, perhaps a happy moment to make it seem less monotonous. Once again, this is completely up to your discretion, as I know that it could seem somewhat out of chracter for your story, especially at this point.
I would like to conclude, with the statement that this is a very nicely written story, with a very fluid style, even if the genre contrasts with Tolkein a bit. Good job, I love your story I think that the depth that you have poured into each of the characters is definitely a strong point. Please keep it up. It's really authors and stories like this that make fanfiction such an interesting field.
Speaking of which, what is the time period for this story, relative to the LOTR books?
| Kira chapter 32 . 1/25/2006
This is such a great story! The characters and plot are so well developed. Please update soon. Your story is so different from anything else I have read.
| Rune the Rambler chapter 32 . 1/23/2006
I have no words that are good enough! *pulls out kleenex* It's beautiful, deep and not just your run-of-the-mill-legomance. There is humour, sorrow, pathos, kindness and cruelty all jam packed into this incredible story.
*blows nose loudly*
I read from chapter one to the latest chapter in four hours. I even forgot to make lunch! See what you made me do?
Please, please, please continue on with PHaPD or I will be left in uncertainty forever!
*sobs some more*

| Riniel232 chapter 32 . 8/12/2005

| just a reader chapter 32 . 8/4/2005
yay, yay, yay! another chapter (raise the roof)...and well done too. this was such a strong chapter, amoran's conversation with thranduil had me feeling uneasy, even little. I am overly happy that jasphine hasn't met some unfortunate end, it really would have been a shame...like someone putting the candle out (I guess that how I view jasphine, a candle...a type of hope).
I was a bit surprised with thranduil's decision...ok not the decision itself but, after having amoran escorted out of mirkwood, to just leave her. at the same time I'm telling myself why would he provide her with any more than he has already. you know, I've got this heavy feeling in my gut...which of course tells me that the next chapter will be something to look forward too! (btw, why were you suspended? if you don't mind my asking that is?)
| Lady Silma chapter 32 . 7/30/2005
My dear, did you really just call this story a short tale? *snorts* It does seem like it is never ending. You've been working on this, it seems, since we've known each other. I am looking forward to the last chapter. Things seem to have developed quite nicely. I do so love angst.
| Jedi Knight Bus chapter 32 . 7/30/2005
*GASP* I was so unbelieveably happy when I got this update! This was a most excellent chapter, and I'm so sorry to hear that this story is almost over...it's one of my fav Legomance's! Please update sooner than you did! :D:D:D:D:D
| Casey chapter 32 . 7/29/2005
You know, one of the things I've always admired about this story is the realism of it, how clearly I can see the dew on the blades of grass and the expression in the eyes of the characters; this chapter, as all of them have, has remained true to that realism. You are such a gifted writer, and I hope to see more from you!
Yes, two and a half years; I can safely say that I'm quite glad that you took up your friend's challenge and wrote this Legolas/OFC fic. :D And after following this story for such a long time, I have every confidence that you'll make the ending spectacular, in that kind of gently subdued tone that the whole story has had. As always, I'm eagerly awaiting the next chapter.
| zola chapter 32 . 7/29/2005
this is wonderful; it's marvellously painful and loving without being sappy. it is one of those stories i choose not to call a romance but a love story-because there's just so much love in it and so that it becomes painful.
there's some lacking in the characters; thranduil was portrayed really well. i think this is the real him.
none are perfect, and so is reality; they have to part, it's the kind of relationship that could not have lasted but burned brightly and ws just intense. i suppose that is better than the cold and dark.
i wondered why you chose Legolas/ofc here, then again, he is rather mysterious-to9lkien never did elaborate on him, did he?
i love it. update soon.
| SofiaB chapter 32 . 7/29/2005
sad chapter. Almost made me tearful.
| Jedi Knight Bus chapter 31 . 7/6/2005
Ardel? What? Oh no...*senses inevitable trouble* This story is still beautifully amazing, please continue! Fortunately for me, you last updated in May. Please update soon! I so look forward to it!
| Jedi Knight Bus chapter 27 . 7/6/2005
Wow, this is such a long story- but so entrancing. Here I am, at 2 am in the morning, still reading your story! Eiyiyi,I must continue! This is truly a beatiful and amazing story; your writing is truly wonderful and so nice to read!
