Reunion in Mirkwood  by Mirkwoodmaiden 2 Review(s)
demeter dReviewed Chapter: 19 on 6/28/2021
There is a feeling all through this chapter of slowly getting ready, of step by step building to, well, something big to come. Dalaria's emotional support and advice, Legolas's old friends giving him love and support in small, ordinary ways as they always did, they feel like small steps to help him prepare. And if Legolas's friends had any doubt of it, I think the Twins's news will show them that they really are part of a bigger picture. And Glorfindel has already gone west to find Aragorn? All of the pieces are coming together now.

So glad to know you are still hanging with this story! Yeah!! And yes it has been a slow process and yes this last chapter saw advancement of what will become Legolas' destiny, far away Mirkwood and all he has grown and known. Sometimes our destiny leads us away from where we thought we would go.

Legolas will never again live in Mirkwood and know the life he knew before, be the little brother and dutiful son. But life is about change and how we deal with it. Thranduil will have to deal with that and he will.

And yes things are coming to a head. Glorfindel has gone to find Aragorn and the hobbits. It is October 3018 and things are now afoot!!

Thank for reading and responding!

Be well!

Dear Mirkwoodmaiden
Finally they arrive to Imladris. I was looking forward to this moment.
I loved the comparison of Legolas to his father, how some traits remind of Thranduil, but still he remains himself in his own indistiguishable, open personality.
I always like the banter between the friends and between Erthion and Vivelle especially.
Vivelle is such a good friend. And her conflict between the healer and the friend is very clear and also understandable. It is not easy at all to separate those roles, when the emotions are strong.
Take care, be well. Hugs

Sorry it has taken so long to respond to your review, It has been a hectic last few days, but thank you once again for reading and responding! I have tried to show flashes of Thranduil within Legolas. He is his father's son he has not always recognised how much. But he is changing, emerging from that cocoon of protection his father tried to wrap him up in. Yes his father's reasons were based in love, but it has still been a cocoon. Legolas won't ever be the same.

I have really enjoyed the building the relationships between the four elves, which also make it difficult for Legolas to convince them to go back to Mirkwood. I haven't that yet so I really don't know how I am going to handle that!

So happy you are still reading!

Be well!

((hugs))
