Beautiful insight to Legolas' life.

Wow... really good story! I think it is a wonderful story and it is a very good idea about Legolas seeing his destiny!
Just write more!!!

Beautifully written. Intense and moving.

Usually, I like to point out my favorite parts and what my reactions were to certain things, but it was all very good.

I guess you could say I may be stunned into silence, a rarity indeed.

Your piece is inspiring!

Thanks for sending in such a lovely review! Inspiring! *she blushes* I love archery and the story grew from there! I wanted show Elven devotion to fighting the good fight or the "long defeat" as I think Lord Elrond terms it (at least I think it was Elrond), what it meant to be an Elven warrior and why Legolas was especially gifted even among Elves with a bow and the two ideas meshed really well. Again, thanks. it is really appreciated. :-))
