I found this beautiful little tale in a Legolas Angst hunt(it's a dark hobby of mine)I usually dont cry when I read these tales but I must say :*) wonderfully written,well done I could connect with Legolas's feelings toward Pip,keep up the good work.

Author Reply: A rather interesting hobby! I'm glad that you enjoyed my story :) I'm not usually much of a Legolas writer (more of a hobbit, goes with my height :P), but occasionally I like to try my hand at another of the characters, and it's nice to know that I've done them justice. Thanks for the review :)

I read the summary and thought "but Gandalf isn't the youngest member of the Fellowship", and then I realized what you meant, and wondered if I could handle it this early in the morning. So I armed myself with the last of the chocolate cake I used to recover from yesterday's reading, and plunged in.

I liked it. I am glad you put the bit about Baylor in at the end, because I was definitely feeling the F&tHKF vibes. It was an interesting focus. Your Leggy POV is very good, even if I cannot imagine Gimli whimpering.

Author Reply: I don't think I would have been able to write it without Baylor's wonderful writings (F&tHKF had be in tears for hours!). I've read a few other stories about the same subject, but none from Legolas' POV, and since I hadn't done a story with the Prince, I thought I'd give it ago. Glad it went down well, because I was worried about the style. I very rarely use first person, present tense, because it's so hard to keep! Thanks for reviewing (all the stories you read, and not just this one). I appreciate the feedback!

Wow, that was really, really good. I like how you wrote Legolas and Gimli. I really enjoyed your writing style. Nice job :)

Author Reply: Thanks - I usually write about the hobbits, so it was a bit of a task writing Legolas and Gimli. And the style was a different type as well! Glad to see this experiment went down well :P

Well done, little sister (he he he). This is touchingly written. It's a shame that Pippin doesn't get squashed in the movie, I would have loved to see what Peter could have done with this scene!

Author Reply: Thank you, big sis ;) It means a lot to me that you liked my fic, since I admire your work! And yes, I was quite upset that poor Pip didn't have a troll dropped on him. I thought they were setting in up when that troll was coming at Aragorn, but no.

Oh well.

This is a really interesting exploration, especially this idea, which is something I don't think I ever thought about:
Is it not possible that the Lord of Imladris foresaw this cruel end that fate had in store for the most beloved member of our company?
Very interesting and creative to see this scene told from a different view point than we usually see in fan fiction. Thank you.

What a wonderful little tale! I enjoyed this so much!

“He yet lives, my friend.” And as I speak, the tears finally find their way down my cheeks. “You may still have your chance to shake him..."

I love the dialogue, and Legolas' thoughts. Well done!
