Oh golly, I know I'm repeating myself, but Legolas' ability to *hear* the pomp of Gondor in the stone, that he can amplify Eowyn's song, as he does for everyone he comes in contact with, is so beautifully done. You've gifted him so he is as beautiful inside as out.
One of the best things, for me, about this story, is that I'm constantly surprised. And one of the very best surprises was when Legolas got up out of bed to go make things right when he realized he had misread the tenor of the advances by both Elrohir and Elladan - two chapters back? Or only one? And here again, he's off to seek out those he feels he's wronged and make things right. I love that about your characterization too. Just exquisite!
You do a great job of ratcheting up the tension, then taking us back down, only to run us up the flagpole again! Not to mention closing a chapter at precisely the point where as a reader I'm begging shamelessly for more.
Oh please, oh please don't leave me hanging another month before the next chapter posts. And from here on out, I'm staying far, far away from WIPs. This is killing me!
I'm going to be very, very, very disappointed if you knock my socks off by actually killing the elf. I live by the creedo, they must all be returned safe and sound to the shape you found them in when you started!
When can I expect more???????
