I hated how, when Harry finally got the balls to tell legolas hi he felt, the elf turned around and yelled at him! Putting everything on Harry as if it was his fault! I also think he's too controlling, Harry spent his life being manipulated and controlled, I can't see him letting his mate do it. Plus legolas just completely ignored Harry's speech!

Ok, I'm sorry, but who the he'll made Gandalf king?! What right does he have to give the last day about Harry?! If that was me I'd stand up for myself!

'Unwanted' would be the word I would use describe the events in this chapter. The thing with Voldemort ruined the story for me.

Umm...he should know that the spell would work when directed at himself because he's done it before when going to meet Regulus the first time.

Your chapters from one to the next are very schizophrenic. They don't always flow together and often are a complete 180 from the last.

How old is your Harry? Judging by this chapter I'd say 12-13? Otherwise he'd be wondering about Sirius.. I'm not sure how I feel about you sending a weak Harry Potter who doesn't know many spells into the Middle Earth universe and putting him in a romance with a character that's pretty much immortal. It's a little weird. Maybe if you have him grow up a bit before the events from the books/movies but judging from the other reviews I'm going to go ahead and say that's not the case. Pity because it was a great start.

Poor Harry; So naive. Well, it's not like he had much of a choice, either way.

BIG HUGS XXX

Harry could have used a Sonorous charm. Harry could use more/different magic in general to change things. It seems weird to include him as a major character in LOTR and not change basic events or have him casting spells. If you're trying to use "He doesn't know the spells" then this is BEFORE BOOK 4! So Harry would be 13-14 and Legolas feeling anything for him is weird and wrong.
If he does know the spells and you just don't have him use them so you can follow LOTR easier, then it's lazy writing.

Ok, so Voldemort has been messing with Harry's head already and he's still having nightmares...
That puts him around 16. Which is better than 14...
Still Gandalf literally told Harry he was expecting him (a stranger from a different world named Harry James Potter and is also blunt) in chapter 2. He already knew there was a prophecy... and they just won't tell him what it is? Makes sense...

What? Harry should tell Gandalf to fuck off.
Seriously, Gandalf is acting more high-handed than Dumbledore. Harry was saved by someone, it's only natural to say thanks or see who it is, and Gandalf just yells at him for wondering? And demands Harry just follow him obediently? "And that's final." "I will hear nothing more of it." Really? And this is AFTER they've spent time together (you didn't say how long). It almost seems abusive how Gandalf just yells and Harry gets submissive.
And how old is Harry? I mean, this fic starts during summer (away from boarding school). The beginning chores and attitude made me think he was 12-13 (Pre-Sirius Black), when Harry was still in the process of developing self-esteem.
Actually, following the books, his breaks were like this.
BK1: Harry had a near death experience with Voldemort. They won the house cup. Harry felt accepted/liked. -summer with the Dursleys should have been excited for next year.
BK2: Nearly died from a Basilisk, faced a lot of trouble as Slytherin Heir. Everyone lived (happy).
BK3: Someone wants to adopt Harry and cares about him. Harry was happy(ish) this summer.
These three summers post book would fit your ch1 Harry.
BK4:Cedric died. Harry blamed himself. Harry is NOT happy this summer. He is depressed/angsty.
BK5: Sirius died. See above.
During the fight he was really calm, so I thought maybe 15. But if this was post Sirius's death, Harry shouldn't be this trusting. He would call Dumbledore about this shit. 15 yr old Harry was an angry, mourning, angsty teen suffering from PTSD. 16 Harry was participating in a WAR. He was paranoid, afraid, and angry.
Thus, to get the perfectly obedient Harry, his age should be 14 or under (which is very wrong).
And everyone keeps referring to Harry as "rude" or "blunt" when he asks common-sense questions like "who are you?" or points out to them that He is IN THE ROOM when they talk about him without including him in the conversation. That's not rude, THEY'RE being rude.
And he just... agrees to join the war council with no questions asked, knowledge received, or personal investment of any kind. Is he even worried about getting back to his world? Has it even crossed his mind?
Is everyone on their period? I swear to god, Harry, Gandalf, and even ELROND have mood swings like crazy. Elrond, impatient?

I loved this but I wish there was more on just Harry and Legolas after the war

I agree with what Nova99 and 01NJ10 commented. Harry was supposedly destined to come to Middle Earth, as Gandalf said and then what? Just for Legolas? Well, I can tell you he was right sh*t at that. I mean honestly, the amount of pain Legolas was put through, I pretty much wanted to help end this poor guy's life before he could fade, because Harry was absolutely awful to him from beginning to end. And he called Legolas selfish? Ha! What jokes! What laffs! In wizarding matters, harry is truly selfless. In matters of the heart, well he pretty much just is awful (and yes I get he has a bad past and self-esteem issues and what not, but later in their relationship, he was pretty awful).
And then in this chapter, he decides, 'Oh! I guess it's time to tell the truth!'...after he died -_- I agree with the comment this Harry was not only a mary sue, but constantly getting hurt. Seriously after awhile, I just skimmed cause it was a bit overdramatic.
This epilogue just felt rushed, specifically on Legolas and Harry's relationship. Seriously, I get there soulmates, but Legolas deserved more than what he was given. He deserved more than a rushed apology.
Sorry, but not sorry

Just... how old is your Harry? I keep thinking he's 14 or 15 and that's actually very disturbing. I'm surprised he hasn't asked ANY questions as to why he's been expected etc and it's weird how he lets Gandalf tell him what to do like that. I guess you can say your Gandalf is even ooc in this fic.
