| Darkover chapter 1 . 2/11/2011
Dear Linda: This is concise but very funny. The end made me laugh out loud! What is not so laughable is how much bad Legolas fan fics there are, which this brief tale parodies so well. Thanks for writing and posting it. Sincerely, Darkover

Look, its 80% of Legolas Aragorn stories in 200 words or less! XP It was hilarious.
| Virtuella chapter 1 . 10/17/2008
*Giggles even more*
I sometimes wonder how anyone can write anything of interest about Legolas. This is probably the way to approach that problem.
| Firefly-Maj chapter 2 . 6/10/2008
Hilarious, I just cant stop laughing- it is so true!
| StarLight9 chapter 2 . 10/7/2007
I laughed at this, quite amusing :D
| wetheril chapter 2 . 4/11/2007
LOL! This was just too funny. Thanks for the laugh. *tears in eyes*
| Super Tinfoil Man Part 2 chapter 2 . 4/5/2007
The Author's Note in chapter 2 was excellent !
| Deandra chapter 1 . 3/23/2007
Hm, just how good of friends can they be with Aragorn watching for so blasted long before he jumps in to help?
Glad to hear all that torture and stuff didn't muss Leggie up though, and that he's still "fine"!
And Elrond getting his revenge in ch 2 was amusing also. Probably getting tired of treating the wounded - lock them up and save yourself the trouble!
| JuliaAurelia chapter 2 . 3/22/2007
Totally hilarious! I can *so* see Hugo Weaving's Elrond working The Eyebrows of Doom in this one.
| Stoneage Woman chapter 2 . 3/21/2007
Ha! That was hilarious! I loved Elrond's 'evil grin.'
| peredhil lover chapter 2 . 3/21/2007
I just read both drabbles for the first time today and I really enjoyed them. I'm glad to see that I am not the only one who enjoys a good parody of all those Legolas and Aragorn friendship angst fics out there.
Thanks for the laugh,
| Larner chapter 1 . 1/23/2007
Yes, odious, and so cliche-exactly as intended.
Poor Legolas. (The betting eyelashes were a bit much, I thought.)
| Quickbeam1 chapter 1 . 1/15/2007
No, there is no canon evidence that Aragorn and Legolas were friends before the trilogy, but isn't that what fan fic is all about? A realm to extend a work of fiction, movie, TV show, or other genre that we enjoy to the point of coming up with various other outlets for the story through our imaginations?
I know some people truly do there best to stay within the bounds of canon, but there is AU as well. I guess everything in specific terms would be considered AU if it is not from the author's precise pen.
Perhaps my funny bone is off tonight. Yes, there are some fan fics that are better written than others, but most efforts posted are authors', of various ages and writing skills, genuine attempts to put down in written word what they like about a fandom.
| Stoneage Woman chapter 1 . 1/12/2007
That was hilarious! This happens in so many fics- it's great that you wrote a parody about it!
| Maddy051280 chapter 1 . 1/11/2007
I just came across this piece on my search for some distraction from a dull library session that is dragging on and on all afternoon.
My squeal at the “oh-so-gone-awfully-clichéd” mellon nîn earned me a couple of rebuking frowns from my neighbours, but hey! Now I’ve got a grin on my face.
