I really wanted to review this sooner. It just seems like, these days, I hardly have any time on the computer other than to check email, or to job hunt. Very little to write anything thoughtful. (For evidence of that, you may notice it's been like a month since I've updated any of my stories.)
I got back into the feel for this again. Maybe the long break from it gave me more objectivity, beyond the, "I want Amoran and Legolas together!" mentality that I just cannot help.
A lot is said in what isn't said. That Amoran doesn't exactly love Legolas, because she doesn't exactly know how to love. I hate cliches, but the one that can't help but come to mind is, "If you can't love yourself, you'll never be able to love another person." And I think that, sadly, also applies to her daughter. I'm not sure what, exactly, motivated her to take her daughter, because I don't think it was love. No, I think it was an emptiness. Amoran has an emptiness in her that Legolas and Jasphine can't quite fill. Amoran is an incredibly sad character, I think, very tragic.
And although I know from the beginning that there's no way a romance between an Elf and a human can end happily, I'm not sure there is happiness for Amoran in any circumstance. I don't know. Maybe there's still a chance and you'll surprise me, but that would be changing the tone and almost, "Disneyfying" (I made that word up, just now) the whole story. I'm still a sucker for a happy ending, and I wouldn't complain, but that's not what I'm expecting. I'm expecting the ending to be incredibly poignant, and melancholy. You have an amazing talent for pulling at the emotions of your readers, especially at capturing emotions like loss and longing.
I am eager to see how this will end, as this chapter leaves off with a sense of things preparing to unravel.

*blinks* That's one hell of a cliffhanger, lady! I'm so glad to see that you've updated this story again; you know a story's good when you're willing to follow it for two and a half years. :) I hope you update again, and soon! I'm on the edge of my seat wondering what has happened with Ardel (and Jasphine, I'm guessing). Excellent work, as always!

So, I just happened read all 31 chapters of this story within a week. You had me hooked from the beggining and all I have to say is, you're an amazing writer who has so much patience to actually give great small details and an almost reality theme to you're story, where most people would completely over ride it. I adore this story and I hope it's to be updated soon because I'm at a complete loss of words to your recent cliffhanger. I guess I will just have to check everyday to see.

...OMG YOU UPDATED!...ok so I actually read this story yesterday but couldn't review until today, gosh I was and still am just so excited . I had to be content with reading what chapters were up repeatedly, which is fine with me. but really, about the new chapter. I adore it as I do all other chapters, the drama is still there, the suspense. blah I want to know what is going to happen next (it's killing me, really) the dialogue still flows together seamlessly. I swear though...what did ardel say (I like to doubt, what can I say?) and WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN...needless to say I am waiting for the next chapter, thanks for the update, yay!
| AngryCupcake chapter 31 . 6/1/2005
Ardel? Ardel! Good Lord woman, you can't stop there, that's just cruel. This is excellent I can't wait to see what happens next.
| zola chapter 31 . 6/1/2005
i'm so pleased you've updated.
i'm sorry to hear about how 's rules have affected you, well anyway, i loved it, how you've written this story. you throw in complications, and what makes their relationship even better is that they are now forbidden to be anything but platonic in relationship between themselves. it exalts it quite honestly.
i like their self-control. and though you don't wax-lyrical on end, the atmosphere of the story is pitch perfect, and the characters are given a cloak of mystery and deception though they seem close and well defined, a little a pearl sheen aura, more about feeling than seeing.
i think this is one of the best stories on
and about the last chapter, their conversation was so wonderfully understated in a way that can't be contained.
| albinofrog88 chapter 30 . 5/31/2005
yay! I can finally review! I love this story, but OHMYGOD please don't let Jasphine (I'm prolly spelling wrong) be dead! Damn Ardel is too much of a smartass for his own good, and if he's gone and gotten her shot, well, well...he's evil. I loved Amoran's answer when Thranduil asked her if she loved his son, but I was confused by Thranduil's response. I suppose he knew she would say what she did in turn, or at least high suspected it, right? I can't see him wanting his son to bind to a mortal, what with his wife gone away, he'd be left all alone.
And I can't believe fanfiction did that to you! You have one of the longest running, most highly beloved stories and they suspend you for a character list! Ugh. It's not like you did the character list to distract from lack of writing.
Anyways, update soon!

well...you can't imagine my excitment when I saw that you had updated. but lo and behold, the updated chapter wasn't posted (because chpt 30: debt and promise has already been posted, but I am sure you are aware of that)...I am looking forward to the actual updated chapter
| Lady Silma chapter 30 . 1/31/2005
It says you updated but I think I've read all this before...
| SofiaB chapter 31 . 1/23/2005
Yay! another chapter. Very good. Is Amoran OK now? I want to know what happens next.
| Gemini Enchantress chapter 31 . 1/23/2005
i think this chapter is as brilliant as the others. i love your story, and the only thing that angers me is that you left off in such a...urg place. please update soon! i can't wait to read more, and i'm dying to see whats going to happen between Amoran and Legolas and the little girl! o update soon!
