This is just great! It's a fresh view on a favorite fairy tale. The pairing of Legolas and Aegnor is unusual, which adds extra interest (for this reviewer at least) and the idea of Legolas as Sleeping Beauty being woken by "true love's first kiss" is a fine touch. All of the other characters are well-drawn too.

One of the more unusual pairings for Legolas. I kind of wanted to know how Aegnor rescued him, and how Aegnor came back to life in the first place.
