This is simply fascinating. I was immediately sucked into this story and read it through at one sitting. Your Elves and their lifestyle feel so real, and Legolas's dream is incredibly lovely and imaginative, every detail finely drawn. The structure of the story, going back and forth into and out of dreams and memories could have been wildly confusing, but you managed to make it not only comprehensible and seamless, but beautiful and lyrical at the same time.
