Love, love, love! So very good and moving. I had tears most of the time while I read this, along with goosebumps.

Very good story! In the movies Elrond always seemed rather nasty and critical of his "son" which he supposedly loved. I like how you reconciled Aragorn and Elrond.

I love your story it's one of the best I have read so far on fanfiction

I loved the story, and I simply adored the line :
"Is that why the Rangers know you as Strider, then? Because you strut about with the knowledge of your superiority?"
That made me laugh so hard I almost got kicked out of the library. I think it was great how you balanced the weight of being exiled with a wry sense of humour. One thing I would remark upon though is the timeline and the escape from the orc camp. It would probably take a week or more to do everything and even Legolas couldn't mist through an orc encampment to free an injured prisoner. Other than a few minor grammar problems the story was stuning. I'm so glad the BEA added your story, I'm sure I would have missed it otherwise and that would just be tragic.

| Imaginigma chapter 5 . 8/2/2005
I found this great story today and read all the chapters at once.
The emotions the charachters display have found their way into my very heart.
A great story full of angst and pain but also friendship and love.
I like the way Elrond comes to see his mistake, but even more I like the interaction between Legolas and the Lord of Rivendell, as Legolas supports his friend unconditionally even before the mighty Lord of Imladris.
Again, really great story.

I cried when I read this story.
| Vi Janaway chapter 5 . 5/19/2005
I only today found this story and read all of it at one sitting.
It is by turns sad, scary and so very gentle.
It is very well-done and fits into the timespan nicely.

Not bad, finished it under an hour. I loved the point Arwen made about her love being her choice, as it was Luthien's. Who could ask for a more romantic attestation of love? The Elrond/Aragorn parts were beautifully done, too. Aw, the old softie. Well, it's pretty late and I'm not sure I can think of any other intelligent comments to make about this story. Outstanding from beginning to end. I'm SO glad I found this tonight. See? It does pay off to check out the older fics. Being the marvelous Aragorn angst story that it is, I added it to my little itty bitty C2 list. Thanks for a great story.

This is almost more angst than I can handle. No, wait. There is never enough! Oh my, you sure have it down to a science. I adored the bit where, to Gandalf's surprise and consternation, a fevered Estel breaks into sobs. Angst at its best! Anyway, glad Estel and Elrond reconciled. I never liked the idea that after raising Aragorn from childhood, that Elrond could be so cold toward his foster son. Great story. Now on to the last chapter.

Okay, here it is almost midnight and I am still reading your story. Call me shallow, but I love Estel pain/torture/angst and your story is serving it up so very well. Gandalf on the eagle, eh? Hey, it works for me - after all, this IS fan fiction. I like the idea of a guilty Elrond and an indignant Legolas, too. The twins are marvelous. The thing I love about Tolkien's scenario is that Aragorn DID live a very long life, as do the elves (albeit much longer), so it is not that difficult to imagine them having all sorts of adventures that would never fit into a normal person's lifespan. (Of course, if they suffered the way they do in all these stories, I might ACTUALLY have to feel sorry for them). But given some extra time, well, hey, you can really make a wonderful alternate universe! Hope you still enjoy getting reviews as much as I enjoy reading your story.
