That was an incredibly beautiful moment. I knew it was Thranduil immediately! Great writing. I was a little surprised - but grateful for the A/N's - especially cause I wondered how on earth the baby would have a tooth at 2 and 1/2 months - then when he said, 'Ada' - I almost fell over. Author's notes are quite nice to have - especially since I had never heard that about singing and such at age one!

Again - very well written!

Author Reply: I had just read the information about the development of elven children when the Ecclesiastes project came up in the Royal Mirkwood group, so when the muse popped this scene into my head, it was interesting figuring out how old the little stubborn darling would be.

I, too, appreciate Author's Notes very much, particularly in regards to cultural things about the elven societies that aren't explicit in The Lord of the Rings trilogy or The Hobbit.

Thank you very much for reviewing!

Ah, a wonderful vision of our small Leaflet and his father. Yes, now a time to give over grief for the two of them.

Author Reply: I'm so very glad you liked this. Please pardon my delay in replying. I've been quite ill over the last week or two and I'm finally catching up with my reviewers.

Thranduil interests me as a character being that he is the only elven leader in Middle-earth who has not borne a Ring of Power. Considering that he had Sauron as a near neighbor for quite some time, he must have been a very strong individual to preserve what he has of his kingdom against the Darkness for all that time.

Thanks for reviewing!
