It was so good that I frown when it ended. I wish you did a sequel of the courtship, it would be interesting to see the Dwarven traditions and Elfish ones too.

I would love if you show'd their courtship! I bet it'd be amazing!

Over the years I have read this story a few times.
Nevre was I able to write a review, as I was never sure how to feel about this. However, I suppose you do deserve one, so here I am now.
I certainly am able to compliment you on your wrting style. It matches that of the original, and both Legolas and Gimli act fully in character, despite - or because, depending on ones view - of those feelings diffrent from the great love that you can feel only for the closest of friends.
I will be honest, I am not sure what I feel on this matter. However, I can see no fault in the story itself and nothing strange that would make these events unlikely.
Thus I say to you: Well done D

So beautiful...! It's so sweet and adorable at the same time! I could imagine Gimli's nervousness and courage. Would love to actually read more if there's a continuation...!

I loved this the dialogue was great sounded like it came out of the book! It made me sad when I got to the end and there was no more. Thanks for a great little story!

This is an unusual, but completely adorable little fan fic!
I like how you kept Legolas and Gimli in character all the way through!
| Anna chapter 1 . 2/21/2010
It was SO beautifully written, and adorable! :D
I just found one small error:
"Thus did Gimli son of Gloin began his courtship..."
I believe it should be, "Thus did Gimli son of Gloin BEGIN his courtship..."

I love this story. The dialogue is especially good, it's tough to try and imitate Tolkein's style without coming off as forced but I think you've done well. I could actually envision this as a scene in the books, and it's so sweet. If you were ever to write a followup I'd read it with great interest, but I have to admit this story already feels complete in its own way.

I can't recall how often I have read your story, but I know each time I have been struck by how lovely, and perfectly in tune your words are. I can hear the voices of the characters so clearly, you have them just right. It would be so wonderful if you would write something more in the genre, you capture the story well.
| Slothy Girl chapter 1 . 3/3/2009
I know this is a one-shot but, you know... you could turn this into a chappie story, it ends in just the right way that it could be a oneshot or the first chappie of a chapter story... just wanted you to know... I love this story though, it's almost exactly like a continuation of the story! Love it so much!

Truly loyal to the context and the characters! Bravo!
