| TheMischieveous chapter 8 . 6/15/2014
I've loved reading your fanfic so far and fully intend on finishing. However, one thing keeps bothering me every time I see it. (It's not a big thing, more of a peeve.) When referring to horses, the mare is female and the stallion or gelding (neutered male) are males. You've been referring to mares with male pronouns. Again, it's not a big thing and most likely not worth editing a fic for; it's just an annoyance.

What a beautiful story. It almost broke my heart, but managed to restore it just in time.

Thanks for that incredible fic, I loved it!
| Archiril chapter 21 . 8/1/2013
Omg. You know, I needed to go to work, or to bed, or to food (any kind), but you just held me here all that time. It is one of the best fics I have read on this site, and I have read many. The relationship between Eomer and Legolas is so well written, and although it was continuously sad, it also held a lot of wisdom. Thank you so much for this fic! I am sure going to read some other sof you! :)

What a beautiful, bittersweet story. While it still would have been a good story had it ended with Legolas' death, I'm glad you chose to write that he lived. His survival and finding a sense of purpose makes it all the more meaningful. I enjoyed the playful moments interspersed throughout this as well, in particular when Eomer sneakily removed one of the game pieces because Aragorn was winning. It made me smile. Your afterword was great, too; nice to see how carefully thought out this piece was. Excellent work.

It's kind of cool how much this story brings to mind the lyrics to Evanescence's "My Immortal" because of the non-healin wounds (these wounds won't seem to heal/ this pain is just to real/ there's just too much that time cannot erase). This is the third time I've read this story and it gets better every time. Thank you for writing it!

This is such a lovely story. Beautifully written, the unusual plot/temporality works, and a wonderful look at Legolas and Aragorn and Eomer.
| Lindir's Ghost chapter 1 . 10/18/2011
I just thought I'd pop in and say hello. I read this story years ago, as on 2004 years ago, and I have to say it's one of those few stories that has actually stuck in my mind. I've read more fan fictions than I care to remember. Literally hundreds if the things, and it really says something that I remembered this one and sought it out in my favourites list on my old account. I was/am Gollum's Fish, by the way.
Needless to say, I'm enjoying it just as much now as I did then. I've just finished chapter three, and I think your interaction between the dying Legolas and naughty (but adorable without being sickly) Estel is very, very well done. Better than it is usually written.
Anyway, I'll review properly later!
All the best,

Hey, I just wanted to say that this is the third tome I've read your story and I love it just as much this time as th other times. One thing I am wondering: growing up around horses, I learned that a mare is a female horse of breeding age, and a stallion is an ungelded male. Is there a reason you call the horse Eomer sees/tames a mare instead of a stallion? Just wondering! ;)
| Ghost of a Curious Cat chapter 20 . 2/5/2011
I am speechless.
You've just broken my heart and then put it back together.
Elves' constantly present sadness and the distance they tend to keep from mortals shines in a completely new, heartfelt light for me now.
THANK YOU for sharing this wonderful story!

I've read this a few times before and every time, I never fail to cry from 1/4 way through until the end. The way you use your words to describe emotion, how to use the flashbacks and snippets of a conversation from a flashback is DEVINE.
| Caelhir chapter 21 . 9/6/2010
Excellent work. Thank you for the additional explanation in the last chapter. It cleared some things up :)
| Caelhir chapter 6 . 9/6/2010
I'm really liking it so far, very well done!
| artgirl87 chapter 21 . 6/29/2010
Beautiful story and very well-written. there aren't many "adult" fanfics that are very thoughtful. I could tell before I read your afterword that you put a lot of thought in the characters and especially the dialogue. beautiful. Fantastic read. Thank you.

Im kinda flipping uot right now because we have a huge storm going on, threats of funnels clouds, and this story is about the only thing keeping me from going completely insane and dragging my family into the basement for the rest of the night.
