Cophetua

The thing I like best about this story (and others you've done) is the thoughtful integration of your original characters.  You have a real talent for making them seem alive and real, and especially for making readers identify and care about them.  A story focusing on an OFC romantically involved with a canon character is difficult to pull off well, and I know many readers immediately dismiss these as Mary Suage based on summary alone.  But both your story overall and your original character, Sigrid, are carefully thought out, engaging, and enjoyable, and a refreshing reminder of what a well done OFC romance can be, despite the genre's dodgy reputation.

This is absolutely beautiful, Jael!  You left me sobbing into my monitor.
I'm glad Thranduil had his wife come back to him, if only briefly, and the knowledge that Legolas would soon know his mother left a very bittersweet taste.
I love the emotional arc of the story, and the characters you developed.

Wow!  That was incredible... words fail except to say that I can't think of a way it could be done any better.
