|A Creature of Fire by daw the minstrel||33 Review(s)|
|The Karenator||Reviewed Chapter: 5 on 3/27/2005|
|I love this chapter! It was just wonderful. I loved the rollercoaster ride of emotions that Legolas was on until he knew that Tuilinn was not betrothed and was still interested in him! I'm with Legolas--Eilian should kick Anyr into the river for not telling him where the maiden lived. Of course, Eilian doesn't know this bit of news, so any old excuse to dowse the settlement leader will do.|
And she wore a green ribbon in her hair! She must have taken to wearing one frequently if she had one with her. Legolas should take heart over that news. She had found a small way to keep him close to her even when it didn't look like she'd ever see him again.
With an intensity that shocked him, he felt an upsurge of desire stronger even than what he had felt as an adolescent first learning to control his sexuality.
Oh my, he's got it bad. Our Legolas has grown up.
I should have known that Beliond would be standing guard. Billy goat gruff isn't nearly as surly as he'd like us to believe. I loved his line about love making warriors more cautious. He's probably thrilled to death that the little scamp is falling in love. Sweet memories for Beliond too. And I loved that he knew to follow the maiden when Legolas didn't return to their flet. Her guard knew where she was too. :>)
Galelas didn't look too happy at the turn of events. I don't think his scowl was because Sinnarn was making glue for breakfast. This is going to come to a head; I can feel it coming.
Such a wonderful chapter, daw. I loved it! Just loved it!
Author Reply: Thank you, Karen. As I was writing this chapter, I was cussing out my decision to do this. Romance turns out to be hard to do without sounding like a love-sick teenager.
I felt for Tuilinn, taking a green ribbon from her pack and putting it on and searching for Legolas. She was brave. She took a chance and she was rewarded.
And for Beliond, this must indeed call up a sweet memory. I think he's a lonely guy and he's probably rejoicing in Legolas's happiness.
You're being very kind, as always. To quote Maltanaut, Thank you, old friend. :-)

|“I approve of love. Love makes warriors cautious.”|
Bravo! What a great line!
I also loved Legolas's hope that Eilian would lose his "small patience" and pitch Anyr into the river, and Sinnarn's warning that Thranduil has only just gotten over the last settlement daughter-in-law.
Legolas is so happy I don't think I can stand to watch.
Author Reply: I have to confess my beta gave me that line. She's gloating right now. She gets that way when I listen to her and it turns out well.
It is hard to watch, isn't it? Maybe I shouldn't have given the year at the start of the story.

|Ahh... I really have nothing more to say. I have a one track mind, and the silly grin on my face just won't go away.|
Author Reply: It's nice to see him happy, isn't it?
