I really enjoyed this! It's too bad it remains incomplete. It's well written, and everyone is in character. I'll add this to my watch list just in case you decide to finish it.

I have only just found this story a few days ago and I have been working my way through it and I am sad that I have reached the end and no more lies before me. This story is fantastic and brilliant, you have managed to keep in character and I love the exploration of the characters befire the tales of the Lord of the Rings. I really hope to find out what befalls the characters in the rest of the story if the will or desire to continue.
One of my main interests through out the story has been the knives, because Legolas has both of them as portrayed in the movie version, yet at the start, Legolas had one, and Cièdron the other, yet now, Cièdron has both. I have mostly been of the opinion that Cièdron would die before the story's end and then the knives would pass on to Legolas, but recent chapters have influenced me to consider that Cièdron may survive, but pass to the Undying Lands. I really want to see what fate comes to the two brothers and the fate of the knives.
It's also interesting, watching the building of the friendship between Aragorn and Legolas, although it is already firm. I would be interested in seeing how their relationship continues in the remaining part of this story. Please do not leave the end of this chapter up to the imagination and assumption of those who have followed it, or those who join it when it has already reached this climax.
I have greatly enjoyed these chapters that you have posted up, they are longer in length than I could ever make and I understand how hard it can be to continue a story for a long time, with such length, especially as life builds up and becomes a more important focus of attention. I wish you luck with life, although I do hope that some time, you will have the chance, energy and muse to show us the ending that is in your mind and the only true ending to such a wonderful story. Well done with your work, keep up the amazing work.

Hello, I wanted to drop a note assuring you that your story is still read in 2011. Delightful and while I'm not one to get drawn in by original characters, you did a fantastic job in accomplishing just that. Of course, thanks also for the Legolas, Aragon, Gandolf advantures.

WOW. Wow, wow, wow. Amazing fanfiction you have here. Your style is so engrossing; even though I'm supposed to be doing school right now, I can't stop reading. Your characterization of all of the characters is spot on. I love how you depict Legolas as a young, innocent, wise, playful, lethal elf when too many show him as super serious, never smiling, always rather morose instead.
And Ciedron and Legolas' fights...! Great. I have five brothers and although we (almost) never come to blows, our fights seem as absurdly humorous and grave as the characters. I'm assuming you have siblings or are drawing from others'? Gandalf is right, Thranduil's punishments are indeed entertaining. I would not want to be in either brothers' place though. XD
I also love the drama in it. The story of the two older brothers and how it affected the rest of the family is touching. I admit, when Merione returned and said how the elf told him not to open the bag, I was expecting there to be some sort of trap in there. Like maybe once the bag opens, a poisoned dart of something shot out and into the person. But the braids were nasty too.
Your descriptions! Ah, your descriptions! Beautiful! I never quite pictured Thranduil's halls as that way before, but now I have trouble picturing them as anything else; they were so perfect. Everything was so wonderfully executed!
I did spot a few minor typos, but that's all. Like in the first chapter (I think), you said 'Aragron' instead of 'Aragorn'. But that's all.
Ack! I have to get off now before Mom gets anymore suspicious then she already is about just WHAT I'm doing on here, but 'Where The Red Fern Grows' isn't anywhere near as interesting as this. Tonight, I will sneak back here and continue my lauding of your incredible story. Lovely work!

I'm really enjoying this, there are some hilarious lines in there. I had to laugh when Aragorn compared those (over)confident elves to enraged butterflies! And the interaction between the brothers is great as well.
I'm interested to see how this will continue, I'm sure it will get a bit darker if they indeed go on a mission to Dol Guldur.

Argh! One more chapter! There can't have been more than one more chapter left, maybe two, and you had to leave? WHY?

You are killing me, seriously! What a wonderful and creative and very different unique story. Most of the time the stories kind of run together and its rather hard to actually figure out which one is different from the other, but man is yours very distinctive and I LOVE IT. Please continue very soon, I do not think I can take waiting much longer!

i'm really sorry to say i haven't read much of your story (Only the first chapter over a year ago, which was brilliant) as it's a WIP,and i tend not to read them until they are finished, as lots of them don't get finished.
So why am i sending you this review you ask?
I have only just discovered that you have started updating again, and wanted to say thank you for continuing this fic.
As i am dying to read it when it's done.
