550 isn't? Or 558 to be precise. Excellent work, and it makes sense.

What a terrific story :D! I really liked the father-son relationship you described, and the plot was great and very interesting!

That was brilliant! How is it that your work is not more famous?

I have read this a long time ago - Thranduil is a wily old fox, and a great king. I love the advice he gives and his cleverness. Hope you still pick up reviews on old stories - thank you for this insight. I will keep coming back to your stories.

I asked the Edhellond groups for reading recommendations, and Aislynn recced me your stories. I am very happy that I followed her suggestion, because your work is excellent. Stories portraying Thranduil with respect, showing him in his true fortitude, are so very rare, I'm thankful to have found one more.

nice job. Legolas isn't half bad either, in this story.

Hi, Jael!

I found this story the other day and was delighted to see you have posted a new fic. So I thought I review here, for once. First let me say that I love the story; like everything you write, this one is excellent, well written and it fits into your story arc perfectly. And the exchange between father and son in this one reveals so many layers of their relationship, and it is very well crafted, too.

I love the fact that Thranduil has to drum up his courage for this particular conversation with quite some amount of Dorwinion, and the sudden change of mood when they talk about the necklage is perfect. Chilling memory, indeed! You also made very believable why Mirkwood's queen was not buried with more ceremony; for the Avari, the custom you describe seems very fitting, indeed.

But the part I loved most was the exchange between father and son near the end:

"Thranduil sighed and looked him in the eye. "My son, Mirkwood has only ever had but two treasures. One of them sleeps in the forests of the Emyn Duir. And the other, I send to Imladris tomorrow."

Legolas reached out and laid his hand against Thranduil's chest. "Adar, Mirkwood's wealth is here. And its strength too."

I love this exchange because it shows so very poignantly the love and appreciation they have for each other.

Great writing, as always! And although this story seems somehow to mark a closing point in this particular story arc, I cannot help but hope that you will grace us with many more stories about these two. :)

Thank you for sharing, and for another wonderful fic.

Greetings and Cheers,
