Peotically written with a wonderful characterization of Legolas that reminded me of Tolkien, not afraid to admit love of Aragorn, though I felt it wasn't romantic. A poignant remembrance of the death of a secondary character, though an important one.

Lady Aranel paints a beautiful and poignant picture of heartfelt love and companionship in a way that we seldom see in this genre. Kudos for so well handling an unusual situation

Strong and surprising... a love story, never fulfilled and never really begun. Just the bitterweet and moving attempt to comfort a woman that loves another, a man that will never marry her, and Legolas keeps his anticipation and his love for the beautiful shieldmaiden deep in his heart. Wonderfully written, with strong images, very impressive.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit this brought a tear to my eye. Once again, you've managed to get conjure up a compelling picture and an incredible amount of emotion with very few words.

I've always thought Legolas and Eowyn looked good together. They seemed to have the same outlook. I liked this view of their relationship. Well done.
