Amazing! I have always loved Aragorn, but I HATED Legolas because of Orlando Bloom's acting. Your story has made me actually like him! Great story, I wish it was in the movie!

Hopefully the children that were made to fight weren't around 6 to 8 years old. 12 year old children were also too young too fight but they would have been able to handle the battle better than 6 year olds.

Great story! Very sweet! Love it! This definitely goes to favs and I'll check your other stories.
But... there seems to be some technical problem, I can't see the end of the story. I expected it to end with Legolas thinking or saying that he sees a King in Aragorn, and when I looked at your other reviews I saw that this is the case, but when I open it it ends where Aragorn is thinking about how everything in the Quest had gone wrong :( I'm sure there is more and I want to read it. Please tell me if you know what the problem is, I certainly want to know how it ends. Thanks!
Once again, great writing. Thanks for sharing!

Welcome back to Middle earth. I hope you stay a while. You picked a lovely friendship piece for your re-entry. :o)
I liked your use of two different ways to show the friendship between Legolas and Aragorn. There was Aragorn's frantic search for Legolas in the beginning and the wonderful conversation between them at the end. You wove the narrative of their feelings and the dialogue together nicely. I loved Legolas's line: "You are my friend because of the person you are beneath all those names you carry." It was genuinely heartfelt and a bit humorous at the same time. I liked the idea that Aragorn recognized he wouldn’t be the king he needs to be without Legolas there with him. And I liked Legolas realizing the full potential of his friend‘s destiny. Also adding Gimli, who is a great character, was a nice touch.
Too bad the formatting got screwed up. It was a little distracting, but certainly not your fault. And one other tiny thing. It should be mellon nin. That is minor, though, because the story is a treat to read.
As I said before, I hope you stay a while in Middle earth. :o)

I immediately recognized your username- I have read "Enroaching Darkness" two times all the way through, and segments of it many, many times throughout the years.
While I prefer book-verse Helm's Deep to movie-verse, this was still a delightful tale of friendship. The fact that you mentioned Gimli's and Legolas' friendship is significant, for many seem to forget about it, while Tolkien placed much emphasis on it.
The end about Legolas seeing a king in Aragorn was especially nice. I liked it a lot.
A couple things- I would have to disagree with your characterization concerning Eowyn. Eowyn does not strike me as a feminist- she is more of a woman desperate to get out of her situation, with all the bad memories of Wormtongue surrounding her. But other than her, your characterization of the characters were good- movie-verse and fanon-based, mostly, but good.
Another quick thing: it should be "mellon nin" instead of mellonin. "Mellon", of course, is friend, and "nin" is the first person possessive. Nin is supposed to have an accent over it, but it's not too important. It was awesome of you to add "elvellon" for Gimli, though :)
seemed to screw up with your symbols- it replaced all dashes and apostrophes with odd symbols. But they were easy enough to ignore.
I do hope to see more writings from you in the future concerning Aragorn and Legolas (especially the former- he's my favorite ;) ). Nice seeing you once more in the LOTR fandom :)
