How would an Elf react to something so foreign as sickness? It's a question worth a story, and well written.

Such a simple thing to us human readers, but I imagine being sick would be a curiosity to elves. Nicely done.

Oh, to be like the elves and never have to go through the pain and discomfort of illness. Legolas has his first look at human sickness and shows himself a good friend to Estel. '"But I became indifferent to life in a way and took it for granted… And then you came and you taught us once more that all life is precious."' I particularly liked this passage spoken by Elrond. Nice story.
