Reunion in Mirkwood  by Mirkwoodmaiden 2 Review(s)
NurayyReviewed Chapter: 16 on 2/5/2021
Dear Mirkwoodmaiden
Let me leave this here also...
I enjoyed the lightness that the teasing between Erthion and Vivelle brings.
Seeing Thranduil so shaken by the letter was moving. I like to see the way the feelings break through his usually regal, composed facade. I loved as that tear streaked his face, a beautiful touching image.
Legolas' visions might be disconcerting and confusing to him, but they bring also a sense of peace and guidance. To me they are beautiful to read.
Stay safe

I couldn't if I responded on FF.net so I am replying here as well. And I will post this there too. I do love the personalities Legolas' friends have developed. And they do lighten his spirits greatly.

So much of how I write Thranduil is so influenced by Lee Pace's absolutely moving portrayal of Thranduil in the Hobbit films. I love his portrayal because when I was writing Thranduil in my later chapters of "The Heir Apparent" about Aragorn's young life as Estel the way he plays him was exactly how I imagined him as I was writing him ten years earlier! There is a regal calm but so much raging emotion just below the surface. Thranduil would hide his tears, even to his own son. The two tears the only hint at the maelstrom of pain within.

Thank you for what you say about Legolas. You write about the soulfulness of the Elves so well that what you say about my writing makes me very happy! I am trying to sketch the gradual growth of Legolas throughout the chapters to arrive at the cheery and confident elf who becomes one of the Nine Walkers.

Thanks so much for the thoughts. You know they mean a lot to me. :-)

Stay Safe, Mellon Nin!
