Hope all is well. This never fails to make me laugh and cry. I hope one day to read it in its entirety. Until then I shall continue to read, and hope. Kind regards, Aranel.

what happened next? Did you write under a different title. I've enjoyed this story and wanted to know how it ends.

I think almost a year qualifies for enough time to update :) great story! Estel is my favorite! The way you portray his emotions makes me want to run into the story to give him a hug. Please continue. I'm still wondering who Jobel is working for. And honestly even though I want Estel rescued, I think that Jobel kidnapping Estel would be fantastic. Ohh and after that have Raul and the elves team up bc he feels guilty. :D

It's much nicer to have the translations in the text instead of having to scroll down to the bottom.

A few things you may want to fix: Someone may have already mentioned this, I may have already mentioned it :p (been so long and I'm not sifting through those reviews to find out). BUT according to FOTR: Book II: Chapter 3: The Ring Goes South the 'typical' ranger garb is and I quote, "The company took little gear of war, for their hope was secrecy not in battle. Aragorn took Anduril but no other weapon and went clad only rusty green and brown, as a ranger of the wilderness." (I know his outfit looks black in the movie, but if you watch the special features on EE it is in fact green and brown).
Now, in ROTK: Book 5: Chapter 2: The Passing of the Grey Company: "A little apart the rangers sat in an ordered company, armed with spear, bow, and sword. They were clad in cloaks of dark grey and their hoods were cast over helm and head...There was no gleam of stone or gold inther gear and harness; nor did their riders bear any badge or tokensave only that each cloak was pinned upon the left shoulder by a brooch of silver shaped like a rayed star." Halbarad says earlier in this chapter they were going to war, so the rest of their clothes COULD have been different.
Now to hair and eye issues: I know it can get tedous for an author and it can stifle creativity, but Tolkien usually describes (except for maybe a few like possibly Finduilas) ALL Numenoreans a.k.a Dunedain a.k.a. rangers are tall, dark-haired with grey/silver eyes. Sure you change one every now and then to say, sandy hair and green eyes, but I would not do it too often, especially in one story and especially if they are related to Aragorn (Halbarad is btw). Now if you are creating from an "Author's Universe" which I do see a lot of, like killing Gilraen. It's wise to post something in the summary or somewhere.
I saw a few spelling/grammar errors that were missed, but that's ok. I know my grammar sucks. But I do believe you use the word "Aye" WAY WAY too much.
Tolkien's world, the more I study it (always do your homework when working on a fanfic). The more I realize it is NOT a Medieval world persay. There are certainly medieval aspects to it, yes. But to just lump it into the medieval genre is wrong. There are several thechnological advances they had in Tolkien's world that are not found in M times. Also several idioms he uses and certain foods.
It is believed that T's world has some sort of indoor plumbing, though primitive. When I read Tolkien, I get the feel of late 1800s early 1900s with medieval aspects (swords, bows, lack of easy transportation, dragons) Keep in mind Tolkien's world IS fantasy.
I can give more advice but for now I have to go. we can pm about this if you wish and remember to do your homework! :)
