This was incredibly well-written. Erotic and sensuous at those parts, but also heart-rending sadness. Arwen's grief pervades the piece (as does the grief of Legolas, Elrond, and Aragorn), and that grief was not glossed over, for which I am very glad. Having Arwen call Aragorn "Estel" (hope) was a nice touch, though I did wonder whether she would, given that she had not met him until he was grown. Regardless, the symbolism was nice. Well-done.
