| White Ithiliel chapter 1 . 9/15
Wait wait wait wait wait... Legolas, only fifteen at the time of Gollum's escape ? O.o Have we read the same books (or watched the same movies) ? Legolas is clearly an adult in both, and Elves aren't fully grown up until their fifty or hundred year ! ... Plus, he always compare mortals to children and says clearly that he has lived centuries ! Tolkien never gave us his age, but I read a few text analysis that gives him around 600. Young for an Elf's, true, but no so much. And since when Thranduil can see the future ?! O_O He isn't Elrond or Galadriel, the power of a Maī

This is pretty good! I LOVE Can't Take It In! :)
I have a few comments though.
I spotted a few grammar mistakes and putting your authors notes in bold would help. Also, the conversation between Legolas and his father (near the top of the story) was a bit confusing because you had the song in italics too. If you would have put page breaks in between it would have been easier to read.
That's about it!
Great job! I love Legolas and Aragorn fics!

It's a great idea for a story, really, but...Legolas? He's 2931 years old...Aragorn merely 86. The idea of using a song to implement a sotry is a good thought as well, and the lyrics fit very well into the theme of the story, I thought. Keep on writing, and good luck!
