I think it's odd that a human healer can heal an elf when the elven healers can't, but I'm willing to see what happens. Who can resist an injured (and probably way grumpy) Haldir? *grin* Okay, Keara has her own fears about being able to help, I see and yes, Haldir was definitely pissed when he realized how she heals. I guess he won't like to be obligated to her, but I have a feeling he won't refuse either. That has the makings of a nice little conflict before the final victory, won't it? *smiles* I guess when you have a gift, and know how to use it, you have to, even if you don't know why. Good that she'll soon find out, I bet. I don't mean to sound trite here, but I do love a good romance and I've read enough that I know what to expect, I think, though that doesn't mean I enjoy them any less! Gah, I just noticed this is in first person, I'm a dork. That's hard to write that and keep it consistent, but it's well done here. I'm at the archery tournament right now, and anxious to see how things turn out. And I want to know a little bit more about Keara, actually. I assume there is a lot more than meets the eye. Interesting turn of events for her, having the elves need her like that. Also and interesting choice at the end, though I can't say I'd have trouble making the decision...since one of the final results would be to get Haldir. *Grin* I know she wanted to do her part and help, but I have to admit, I was getting a bit frustrated at her stubbornness--to keep going when she was getting so weak from helping all of them. However, it turned out welll in the end. Interesting sort of tweak with her making the choice instead of finding out she was half elvish or something. Oh, also, it was a tiny bit uncomfortable reading in first person, because I'm not used to it, but it was also part of what made the whole story work, I think. It had very little dialogue, and of course, we never knew what anyone else was really thinking or feeling, but you did a good job in making sure the we, along with Keara, could interpret others' moods and emotions.

I found this fiction very well done. It was thought provoking, intense, emotional and intriguing. I loved the interaction between Haldir and the original female character. I felt like crying when he called for her to "follow me". Ok, perhaps I did cry a little. And that is what makes this story one of my all time favorites.
