We Were Young Once ~ III  by Conquistadora 7 Review(s)

I reread this chapter and although I knew what to expect I was mesmerised once again. Fast pace and action packed made me forget about the whole world. Love Thranduil's wrath and he really acts as the greatest king. The idea of his wife gathering their people in Valinor is wonderful. You are a brilliant story-teller!!!

Breathtaking battle scenes!!! This story has caught my attention and refuses to let go (not that I want it :D)

How I love to see this story updated! I hope Thranduil will one day see his beloved Lindoriel again.It was so heartbreakingly beutiful when he sat at his wifes grave.
The cleaning of the forest was refreshing to read and
Thranduils love of his wife helps him there.
And somehow you have also manage to squeese in humour here and there like when Legolas asks Thranduil to be civil on that conference in Imladris about Dol Guldur.
.Gwealas a magnificent example of a Silvan elf. He compliments the King so well.
I also feel sorry for Legolas and Lorivannet. I hope they can unbind the knot of issues they have.Please go on ! Take care!

Author Reply: Thanks for reviewing! Readers like you keep this story going. I have to finish it now, especially as I have ideas knocking around for Book IV.

It's quarter to three in the morning, I haven't been to bed yet, and it's all Thranduil's fault :P

I saw this story on the front page of SoA and went to read it from Part One all the way through. My friend Emma and I co-write Thranduil stories (though they're not posted here) and we love him very much. Of course our backstory for him is vastly different than yours (we've made him much younger, for one thing). But I can completely believe this Thranduil. I love the way you've written him. You made me laugh and cry all the way through, often in the same chapter, sometimes in the same sentence. I'm sorry I didn't review everything, but I hope this one review will suffice for now, as well as a promise to keep track of future updates and to review when I can.


Author Reply: Thank you! I'm glad my efforts can stand up to fellow Thranduil fans; it can be difficult with a character who has so much flexibility in the source text.

I was happy to see this! So wow, things are getting grim -- but if anyone's equal to the task they are. I'm glad to see Radagast getting in on things -- Thranduil must have known him a lot better than any of the other Elves... Thanks for writing!

Author Reply: I wanted Radagast to seem a bit more useful than people generally give him credit for. Thanks for reading!

Stunning! I have been too long away, called by many concerns. But I have begged a little time. I will need to go back to read the chapters before this one. Tonight, however, this is enough. It tells me that I am in for a rousing read.

It's good to be back.

Author Reply: Thank you! It's great to have you back!
