I loved that everyone kept giving Eilian a rune of protection necklace to replace the one he gave Legolas. Such a subtle and creative way to show how much he is loved. It was such a treat to see Nitha again. It's nice to see Legolas as a friend to non-elves...probably because it is a precursor to the LOTR fellowship. :) And it's been so much fun to learn more about Beliond and see his relationship with Legolas develop. Heartbreaking to learn that his son died in battle and I am so interested in how that afftects his thoughts of Legolas. I defintely shed some tears reading that scene. And well, my poor lost Eilian. I just want to hug him until all the shadows have left him. (I think I am going to be inconsolable when I read the last of your LOTR stories on this site. I am so in love with them!)

They all handled things in this chapter fairly nicely - good for them! And I laughed when Thranduil said he knew about the trees.
*sigh* Eilian's right - if he hadn't done those things, there'd be nothing to tell. I'm not *entirely* convinced her father didn't make up that message on his own, but we'll see..,
Good story, thanks for writing!

More protective bling! :-) I knew that had to be coming, though...
Lots of confusion, but everything turned out all right in the end. I'm glad Galelas did well, and seems to be loosening up a bit.

Legolas might never speak to Thranduil again if he made Ithilden pull him back into the Home Guard.
Poor Anneal... :-(

It's nice that he still talks with Nitha. :-) Though, I start to see how such a friendship could be awkward - he'll still be barely into adulthood when she's very old...
Nice that he and Beliond are starting to make strides toward getting along.

He can still see the stars? ;-)
| PSW chapter 4 . 8/16/2015
That whole laundry scene was great! I laughed out loud several times. Who would marry him, indeed?
Eilian will be the most protected Elf in the kingdom... :-)

Tinar's there! Fantastic! :-)
You can definitely be stressed by the company of others and still lonely - the two aren't mutually exclusive at all. And in other news, Eilian will probably be good for Galelas. That young warrior you mentioned? ;-)

Depression s**ks. *Sigh* And it doesn't seem like his judgment is at its best right now. Hopefully he can stay out of trouble for a while - but that's not what he wants, and anyway I don't see it happening... :-P

I finally got back to your stories! Reading these in order is a huge task which I sadly forgot for a while.
The latest few stories in this canon have been just phenomenal! I really enjoy Legolas' struggles with entering adulthood, something I am going through myself also. All of these characters feel so alive; they all have a clear backstory and personalities. I have enjoyed seeing how the dynamics in Thranduilion family have changed over the years. How Thranduil needs to learn to trust his youngest while Legolas needs to admit that being his son is not too bad. No, really, as families go, Legolas could have it so much worse. The little detail about the runes and Eilian really brought a smile on my face. How even in the depths of depression, his family won't turn away but are determined to show that, despite their quarrels, Eilian is dear to them. The dynamics between the brothers is especially interesting to ponder about. I tend to view trios in psychoanalytic way; ego, superego and id, you know. How Ithilden is the moral, Legolas the sense and Eilian the primary instincts. A part of me wishes the brothers as a trio would have more scenes together. The one thing that bothers me is the color of Eilian and Ithilden's hair. I've been imagining them as dark-haired but I honestly can't remember whether you have given that description. (It's kind of sad how the Mirkwood Elves were not represented in LOTR enough. Especially about Legolas, there seems to be no certain information. The guy can describe landscapes in amazing detail yet can't tell us his haircolor.)

This was a thrilling peice despite its simpicity. It was good to have one focused on eilien and legolas- my favourite of the whole lot. :-) :-)
