Reviews for Of Rowan and Ruin
Sheeshasan chapter 1 . 3/12/2022
I am not an avid reader of LOTR fanfiction but I do recall reader a story years ago about the friendship between Legolas and Gimli and the gift of a tree that grew until it could live no more but I did not remember the name of said story or the name of who wrote it. It is a story that remained close to my heart through out the years and it is quite by chance that I stumbled upon it this morning. I read the first two lines and suddenly I knew I had just found THAT story again and took great pleasure (and sorrow) in reading it anew. Thank you for sharing it with the world and may it outlast our poor rowan tree.

Re-reading my own Favorites list, I find this gem of yours. About this same time, I wrote 'Ship'. I do not remember exactly when I wrote 'Ship"; the date here on FF is 2009 but I had it on a Yahoo email writing group before that. They go well together, in any case. Thank you for an enjoyable morning!

That was ridiculously amazing. I love how you let their friendship develop, discussed the changing politics of the passing age, and then, especially excellent, the ending. A joy to read, so thanks for writing. :)

This story is accurate, touching, and well written! I love the Gimili and Legolas friendship!
Thank you for also illustrating what happens after the ring is destroyed. Gimili and Legolas are probably the best view points to take when explaining the aftermath, seeing as one of them’s immortal and the other’s a slow aging dwarf. Their relationship is one of the least explained things in Tolkiens book that I’m interested in, and I can’t get enough of them. That bit with the Rohan tree was

I really like this explanation on why Gimli sailed, it fits their characters so well.

I love this. I really love this. It made me cry. I truly love the power of Legolas and Gimli's friendship, and their willingness to face anything, so long as it is together. Wonderful job with this. This is officially one of my new favorite stories. :)

So sad. Gimli is a character much of the fandom underappreciates, but I love the friendship between him and Legolas. This story here is poignant, and almost brings me to tears.

This was incredibly beautiful. You write these characters so well. I must admit that I cried through the end of the tale.
