Story Summary

So when did Legolas meet Aragorn anyhow, and under what circumstances? Goes from light to heavy and back again. Gap-filler set between Gollum's arrival in Mirkwood and his interrogation; violent in places, plenty of fake elven metaphysics, traces the beginnings of the friendship between Aragorn and Legolas. Original characters, Gandalf, Gollum, and Thranduil also figure in this fic.

What a great story! I really enjoyed seeing the two become friends. It was interesting to see how they seemed so alien at times to each other. And thank you for the epilogues! You know we would have been wondering about the fate of Aradhil.

Well done!

Hi docmon,

It was interesting to see how they seemed so alien at times to each other.

Oh good, I'm glad that worked. Thanks for your comments.

Your characterization of a young and curious Legolas (towards Aragorn) is very refreshing! 

This was marvelous. It had everything in a story that a person could want!  A little eerie at times.  I couldn't help but laugh when the werewolf gave my favorite Ranger a kiss (I would have done the same if I were the werewolf---come on!--who wouldn't!).

I felt an aching in my heart for Aradhil. His character was so realistic.   Such as your characters.... so life like and complex that one would like to make it right for them...SAD. I enjoyed this!  Please keep writing!
