Reviewed by: Nancy Brooke -- Score: 2

Very nice, simple and straight forward yet quite evocative. It's an interesting thought that one's death can bring a friend peace.

Humor and hurt, love and loyalty—Azalais gives a nice snapshot of the final parting of Elessar and Legolas. Good use of that line out of "The Ring Goes South".

A good farewell for both Legolas and Aragorn. I like the idea that they can now both be at peace, with Aragorn resting from a long life and Legolas resting from many years spent resisting the sea. Nice farewell, and good perspective work, too.

Great fun! I never would have thought to use this line in this context, but it works really well. In fact, in my opinion it works better with this scene added than it did in Tolkien's original without it...

A nice view of their parting.
