Wow, I really love this story. Firstly, I appreciate your combination of book and movie details and scenes, while still keeping it from being tied to the original flow. Fics too often only deal with the movies.
You also did a great job mixing the our world with Tolkien's. By giving a hint of the fantastical, namely including the existence of the fae, to the real world, you were able to make Lane's appearance in Middle Earth that much more believable.
I really love your characters! They all feel very real, especially Lane and Legolas. You've done a lovely job progressing their relationship in a slow and natural way.
I also like that you do no not force Lane to always stay with the Fellowship. It's her character that decides where she goes. Speaking of her character, Lane is very unique in the world of fanfics! The marine/cop combo works extremely well to make sure she's not a helpless freeloader, and yet she can still be vulnerable (and Legolas too! But in a way that doesn't make him wishy-washy).
Hearing Lane's thoughts on culture differences towards the beginning was also interesting. Most stories only address the differences as they affect various actions, so simply viewing her internal reactions was very refreshing.
Basically, amazing story!
And now, onward to the sequel, to discover how Lane may or may not change Middle Earth! (And to find out when the heck she and Legolas are finally going to hook up.)

I love how you bring out that part of her that wants to help a fellow soldier, regardless of affecting the future. And then I also love how you let destiny take its course with his death. Even if it makes me sad. Excuse me, gotta go find that box of Kleenex...where are you sneeky little-sniff-blighters?

A wandering Ranger of the North giving a Elf that is centuries older than him love advice. That entire scene was priceless.

Thank you for doing your best to avoid the Mary Sue trap!

Not enough information. For example did the child kill the OC or did someone nearby did?

A chapter on Legolas' thoughts would be much appreciated and a welcome change to Lane's POV - there's nothing wrong with her POV though.
Loved the story so far. All the best !
(No pressure )

so she doesn't have any actual gift like power wise besides reading minds? she cant like I don't know go all starfire on them and shoot energy out of her hands? to bad she wont save boromir or it seems like she isn't I kind of hope she does his death was kind of pointless and in the end it made his father a fucking psycho that tries to burn his other son alive. same with haldir his death is kind of pointless as well. well I only saw the movies so I don't know if he actually dies in the books
