General Comment

This is an absolutely fabulous story.  I started reading this at work then had to stop because I was crying like an idiot and I think people were sizing me up for a straight jacket.  Anyway your portrayel of Aragorn and legolas was touching, I could sincerely imagine their joy and pain.  Leggy was a stronger elf than I could have been.  I would have tied Estel to the back of my horse and headed into the sunset. LOL  Thanks for the great story, Lady E

Slash With Care - 8 stories - Owner: Azalais
Slash is one of my indulgent pleasures - reading, I've never attempted to write it! - but so many M/E slash pairings are fraught with unlikelihood. The upside of that is that for me an author has to work really hard to make many pairings convincing - which means that some of the best slash is just brilliant writing. A list of fics that slash, with care.
Included because: It's all about the emotions. Unbearably intense, managing to remain pretty well I/C, and acknowledging the central problem of this particular relationship: "nothing has changed..."
