My heart aches with sorrow at the end of this tale. Ah, if only the friends could one day meet again.

This story is absolutely beautiful. It is almost hard to believe that english is not your native tongue, you write so well (better than many native speakers even) and you truly depict Tolkein’s characters with amazing accuracy.
I absolutely love the way you have depicted Aragorn and Legolas’ friendship. My only reservation is what some other readers may conclude. I think for some people it will be difficult and confusing for them to grasp the concept of such a strong friendship without any romantic feelings. Now I do not mean there is anything wrong with two people being in love, whether they are opposite sexes or of the same-sex, but I do tend to feel distaste towards fans who take characters already established to be a certain way and portray them inaccurately (there are many fans who like to pair Legolas and Aragon romantically). I feel this is also a terrible analysis of a strong male bonding-friendships, as if men cannot have deep affection for one another without it being romantic in nature. (Plus, elves are much more sensitive to things and their own feelings, more than humans. And really, it is only our society today that dictates how a man or woman 'should' act. True unconditional love is more than just romantic/sexual feelings for someone. Friendship can be just as strong without overstepping that boundary.)
So I just want to say kudos to you for portraying their deep friendship as two true friends and not potential-lovers like others make them out to be, and how I feel Tolkien himself made them to be.
The ending had me shed a few tears, such a bittersweet ending, ah. Thank you for sharing this. You are a fantastic writer.

Know it's weird, but I'm sort of happy Elessar is sad because he said those words to Legolas!

*Sniff* The fact that Legolas is doomed to face the passing of his most beloved friend, even the great possibility in the movies, still gets me, ya know? T.T
This was a beautiful story.

(Voice starting dangerously low) Did you just KILL my Legolas? HOW DARE YOU! Oh, my gods I am a FRACTION OF A MILLIMETER FROM THROWING MY LAPTOP ACROSS THE ROOM! That'd better just be a nasty trick,

Are we sure Eldarion is the one they want? Legolas is also the son of a king and I never heard them say Eldarion's name specifically...

I don't care if Aragorn feels bad I am still killing him. Gr...

Aragorn I will kill you know you sorry excuse for a "merciful" and "understanding" king. Say your goodbyes while you still can. ;O
