Hey, Sivan! This is an excellent chapter. Now Lord Elrond and Thranduil are at each others' throats because of this situation. Elrond is having trouble curing his son and Thanduil is worried about Legolas' mental state. They used to be such good friends, and now this, neither seeing reason.
Elrohir is starting to see reason, and remembering the good friendship he and his brother had always had with Legolas. He is starting to see reason.
Glorfindel is being a good intermediator, understanding everyone's side in this and caring for everyone and trying to help everyone see reason, in his own 'Glorfindelish' way.
I like your phrase 'while he sat upon the green carpet of nature,' that's really visual and nice.
Aragorn finally awoke...yay! I wonder if it isn't going to take Legolas and his presence to heal Aragorn. I guess I'll just have to wait and find out...
This is a really wonderful chapter, Sivan. Please continue soon! I really like your story!

Poor Legolas can't even see reason, believing that everyone, even his Adar are judging and hating him...even his horse...that's funny, Sivan! He is so extremely caught up in his grief for his friend and how everyone, including his father, are feeling about him, that he is just shutting himself off so he doesn't have to feel the pain he is putting on himself, unrationally, even to the point that he feels his father even hates him. The only one I'd worry about is Lord Elrond, who really *isn't* seeing reason.
I liked the part you included about Thranduil, Oropher, and the trust Thranduil had put on everyone, including Elrond to look after his father. Elrond felt very bad for Thranduil, yet that was forgiven, so Elrond should forgive this accident Thranduill's son had made, just as well. Elrond isn't thinking about that. Just that his son is injured. This was a very, very, very, good chapter, Sivan. I love your writing. Can't wait to see what's next.

This is a very, very good chapter. This builds up real tension. Legolas is so wrapped up in his emotions and guilt, that he can't see any kind of reason. He's afraid everyone hates him; everyone at Rivendell, and even his own father. Elrond is still very angry with him. The twins are feeling guilty about Legolas now and wish they could help him...a bit late. But Legolas doesn't know that.
I wonder what the situation with Aragorn was. I'll find out later, I'm sure.
No one has heard Aragorn's side of the story, yet, and I'm sure he will forgive Legolas right away and think everyone else is being ridiculous...but then I'm guessing...wonderful chapter. Keep the angst coming!

More fear, blame, guilt, pain and angst. I love it! Poor Legolas is taking the blame for something he was not 'willingly' responsible for, but no one is seeing it that way. Especially Elrond. He can't see beyond his grief. And he is being very unreasonable to Legolas. Legolas is so wrapped up in his own grief, and that combined with Elrond's anger, who knows what he might do. I think the twins are finally seeing reason, to some degree. This is really a good story, Sivan, I love it!

Good first chapter. Legolas has gravely hurt his good friend, accidentally, and is very grieved and seems to be in shock over it. Elladan seems to feel a little bad for Legolas and how he must be blaming himself, but somehow I have a feeling no one else will at Imladris. Good Angst. Look out, Legolas! It was great, Sivan.

What happened to posting every weekend? What you should do is write the next chapter and then write the next. Post ch. 6 on a weekend and then beegin writing chapter 8 since you should have already written 7. Post 7 the next weekend and continue that pattern. Do that with every story you post and things should go much smother and there shouldnt be shuch large gaps. And yeah i know i havent posted a story yet but thats because thats what i am doing. Only sorta half way with the story I'm writing because its prettey majorly chose their path. Ioing to let the rev'm even geiwers choose who the main character falls in love with. So yeah don't think I am just critiqing you for the sake of doing it. I really think it would help you a good bit. thanks for writting it gives us bored nerds something to read. Actually I HAVE TO wait at least a year before I read a story again because I will start to read it and remember every single detail. Ecspecially with lord of the rings,so,sigh, i just cant read it. Despite smexy elves.

Ooh, another chapter! I was so happy to find this in my inbox. And it was another wonderfully gripping and realistic piece of writing. Although I am saddened to hear that Legolas really is taking the guilt to heart so heavily. And now there is animosity between the fathers; that's a shame. But oh, Aragorn's awake? How exciting! Perhaps he'll be able to shed some light on everything that's happened, and maybe he can bring peace between the two fathers. I hope so, because Legolas needs reassurance soon!
A great update. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment. Until then, Happy New Year!
