|Reviews for Tales From Middle Earth, The First Time|
| Eosneve chapter 22 . 1/27
Just found this great story and read it in one seat... Wow! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! You made me hold my breath all the time! I was so involved and excited and then... 'the end'! I feel a bit empty now, but regardless this last chapter was wonderful!
I liked the characterizations (Legolas, Aragorn, the twins, Thranduil, Galad... How I loved them while reading) and the descriptions, and the way you described Mirkwood was so magical and splendid, that I am enamoured with it! Not to mention the friendship Aragorn and Legolas came to share and that you captured and expressed in such a neat way: once Legolas learnt to trust Strider, their relationship has been heartwarming!
I know this story has been complete for 10 years but it nonetheless deserves a review, which should be longer and more detailed, but I'm really speechless and a bit lazy, too ;-)
Hannon le! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us!

Poor Legolas! People just love to abuse him! I'm glad this has a happy ending. Great story.

Such a sweet and wonderful ending to an incredible story! What can I say - great action, great suspence, and most of all great emotions. I loved your description of Mirkwood and wood-elves. A dark land hidden in mystery, its secrets only known to the ones living there, but the Elvenking's home is of course a place of beauty and celebration. In most stories out there Legolas and the twins venture to and from Mirkwood on regular basis... and I have to say that the picture you create is way more realistic. Haha, I'm really glad Galad didn't kill Aragorn - he would have been in quite a bit of trouble then!

Hi! I started this story yesterday, and I have to thank you for the wonderful, intense, and extraordinary reading! I am greatly enjoying it! Oh, the angst, the comfort, the suspence! It is all masterfully done. And just when one thinks that things can't get any worse, Talen reappears. Elrohir was right - Aragorn should have killed him. Oh wait, I said that wrong - Aragorn shouldn't have killed him because if he had, I wouldn't be reading such a suspenceful and scary story right now! Sorry I didn't stop to review earlier, but I couldn't stop reading (and that's the reason I'll cut this short now - I just have to move on to the next chapter)

WOW, this story is awesome! the way you developed the characters, and the fact that legolas was actually stong in this, not some wimpy child.

This is a lovely story. I was enthralled from start to finish. Excellent work! :)
| BelovedInfidel2006 chapter 1 . 1/23/2007
This story... is absolutely beautiful.
And I really haven't anything else to say! But really I loved it. Thank you.

Very AU, but also very well-written.

What a sweet ending. The poor lads, memories just don't fade all that quickly and you put them through a lot! Funny how the elves' beautiful singing degenerated into tunes of a more ribald nature. That made me laugh. And you had Aragorn place sixth in swordplay! Nice author. Whenever my sons and I watch any of the LOTR movies, my boys (who are in their late teens) always comment on how much fun it must have been for the actors to be in those movies. They got to get all dressed up in cool costumes AND play with swords and all that. Anyway, I digress. Thanks for this marvelous story. It's been phenomenal. (I have the whole thing printed off to re-read anytime I want to). See you at the next story. *Hint*

Excellent chapter, lots of things going on under the surface. Absolutely loved the visual of Aragorn dressed in his flowing blue silk with the red sash *and* the bare feet and the hair brushed until it shone. Very, very nice. *smile* You seemed to capture the atmosphere of the elves' festival with just a few chosen words. There seemed to be more than a little implication at the end of this chapter. Poor Aragorn pining away for someone to dance with and then the ethereally beautiful Legolas shows up to dance. *ponders* Yes, implied (I think) but very tastefully done. Sorry I didn't review sooner, I've had some unexpected things come up which were not conducive to reviewing. And what's this? Now you've posted a final chapter? Must read on.

I was so looking forward to this story ever since I read "Tales from Middle Earth" and utterly loved it. And you did not disappoint. I have a soft spot for those "How Aragorn and Legolas met" stories, I've probably read a few dozens of them. But this one was unique, very dark in places, but you still managed to show their growing bond throughout the whole story. And it probably was the perfect story to read on the first day of snow during this year's winter season. Nice coincidence:)
