Laikwalasse,
This was such an awesome story. I enjoyed every minute of it and was on the edge of my seat at some points. I also love elves and if I did write stories I would write with mostly all elves. Elrond is one of my favorite elves, but Legolas would be my top favorite elf. You write very well. Thank you for writing this story so I could read it.

Author Reply: Thank you so much, Ashley. This was one of my favourite stories. All about the wood elves, even if my favourite elves are that of Imladris but I like Legolas and Co just as much. Im so glad I could hold the tension high and that the emotions worked. Thank you that you find my writing style good, because english is not my first language. I will always write only about elves and hope to see you at any of my other stories or the new one that will follow soon. Thank you for a most appreciated review. Lai

Hi Laikwalasse,what a heart warming finish to the story.Lets hope that all find some healling.I have enjoyed reading Revolution very much. Am wondering though, are we going to eavesdrop on a certin Valar, "having a talk" with a certin elf. Don't want to mention names of course. LOL Galathil

Author Reply: thank you, Galthil. Im so glad you enjoyed the story and dropped a review here and there. They mean a lot to me. What an interesting request for a sequel. Im still fulfilling another sequel-request but after that...we will see. Again thank you for reviewing. Lai

First, I'm glad Luindil was exonerated, even though it was at the cost of his life.

Though life now goes on, it will never again be the idyllic oasis for Thranduil. From now on, he will have to watch his back even when in his own castle.

I'm glad all his children survived (phew) and are healing.

This was a sad, but riveting tale. I enjoyed it very much. Looking forward to your next foray into Middle-earth.

Author Reply: you are right: thats the bitter after taste of this episode. Thranduil will have to be even more observant. Im so very glad that you enjoyed my story. It means a lot to me and I would be glad to invite you to my next stories. Thank you for your most appreciated reviews,Agape. Lai

A nice wrapping up chapter to a very intense story. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you.

Author Reply: I thank YOU for your constant reviewing and encouraging words. Im so glad you liked my story, Fiondil. On to the next. LOL. Lai

Finally! But I fear recovery for all of them will be slow, yet now they have the chance of doing so and maybe Thranduil will have learned a valuable lesson in all this.

Author Reply: yes, it will be a long and hard time and Im sure Thranduil has learned his lesson. It tould be very interesting what Lord Nmo has to say. I can not imagine how the Valar will judge such an elf. Thank you for reading, reviewing and following the story. Only one chapter to go. Lai

So even the forest wished for the mad elf to be stopped. Wow! This was a very real fight scene. I felt like a bird in that tree, right there watching it all. I believe you show, simply and clearly, the difference between a good "man", (of any race) and a bad one. Even knowing that this must be their final confrontation, Thranduil still fought to defend, to protect. It was only after his only so-far uninjured son was attacked that he began to strike to kill. My favorite Thranduil tales are the ones pictureing him as the defender of the forest and all that live in it. This chapter nicely joins that company. I also have enjoyed your portrayal of Celeborn throughout this story. He has always struck me as calm, steady, strong. I doubt the young guard resented his taking charge and giving the directions needed to get them all helped and home; the directions that Thranduil was in no shape to be giving just then.

Author Reply: thank you for your lovely words, demeter. It struck me as a nice idea, that even the forest wanted to be rid of this mad elf. Im so glad I let you feel like a watcher in the tree. I was there also! Showing the difference of good and evil was my intention and it obviously worked. It was very important for me to show that Thranduil was ever ready to spare Thorans life and that he did not intent to kill. He had so many reasons to kill this elf, but he detests death, yet even he has his limits and Thoran has done all to deserve death. Im so very glad that "my" Thranduil does fit your imagination. Hes a defender and not an attacker, yes! I picture Celeborn as I have described him: calm and strong. Hes a ruler of his own and demanding if necessary. Yet he stood steadfast on his cousins side when Thranduil had no longer the power to give orders. Anyway, thank you so much for your most encouraging and lovely review. I really appreciate it. Lai

Personally, I would not want to be Thoran when he enters the Halls of Mandos. Gives me chills just thinking about it. This was no kin-slayer in the midst of passion or military fervor. This was a creature more like unto Saruman's Orcs. *shivers* Perhaps that's where the White Wizard got the idea.

The entire kingdom will take yen, I think, to get over this traitor's reign of terror. I suppose in that way, he was king for a time. But what a hideous king. Demented. Twisted.

Very nicely written chapter.

Author Reply: I would not want to treat place with Thoran either even if I can find no pity for him. He was already beyond help and reasoning. Yes, Thranduil will need a lot of time to get over this and with him so many other having lost a loved one. My lat chapter will deal with this. Im so glad you liked this chapter and thank you for reviewing, which is highly appreciated. Lai

I am glad that Thorin is dead,with his insanity and bitterness he was beyond help.Lets hope in death he can find some peace at last.As for the king his family and people,especially the parents who lost their children,I really hope that they can begin to find some healing.It was very hard for Celeborn to watch the fight and not get involed,he just seemed to know what to do.No wonder they call him Celeborn the wise.I would love to be a fly on the wall, when Thorin and Namo have their talk.All I can say glad its not me.Can't wait for the next chapter.LOL Galathil

Author Reply: you are right, Thoran was beyond help. Now all can start to find some healing, including Thranduil. Yes, Celeborn is not called wise for nothing. He knew that it was Thranduils fight and stayed back, yet Im sure he would have taken action if something had gone wrong. Only one chapter to go with the aftermath of this dreadful episode not only for Thranduil but for so many others more or less involved. Thank you so much for your lovely review, Galathil. I really apreciate it. Lai

This was a very sad chapter to read. The depths of Thoran's insanity were intense. That he would throw the Elfling to the ground, knowing he would be hurt, and perhaps even killed, is unbelievable. And unforgivable. I'm sure he thought the horse would go faster without the added burden, that he could fight better without an Elfling to consider... but nothing justifies this.

It had to be one of Thranduil's hardest decisions, to leave his youngest in the hand's of his brother. I kind of wish he'd stayed with Legolas and left Thoran to his guards. I'm sure he continued because he wasn't sure where his guards were. So much for taking off and leaving them behind. Glad Galadhion was with him.

My heart broke at Bregolas' death. He entered the Halls of Mandos as a true warrior and faithful guard. *sobs*

I could feel Saeron's relief at the sight of Elrond's sons. Glorfindel's presence helped, too. But to see Celeborn go off after Thranduil. That was important. If anything happened to the Elven king... I do not think power was only in Galadriel's hands. Her husband was an awesome character.

Great chapter. Can't wait for more!



Author Reply: Thoran is beyond any reasoning now and can await no understanding anymore. Of course Thranduil has struggled with his decision to stay with his youngest or go after the mad elf but he wanted to make sure that no one has to suffer again from Thorans madness, which was not true for poor Bregolas. Galadriel is powerful but Celeborn is also a power to reckon with. Of course he is gong after his cousin. Thranduil is a formidable warrior but with this mad elf you will never know and Celeborn is taking no chances. Thank you so much for the lovely review and your enouraging words, Agape. The next chapter is already written and with my beta. Again thank you. Lai

Well, at least Legolas is safe if injured. That's a relief. But really, Thranduil needs to stop dithering and just get rid of that mad elf. Thoran is long overdue for a little chat with Lord Nmo. *grin*

Author Reply: yes, Legolas is safe and now the way is cleared for Thranduil and be assured he will make sure that Thoran will have a chat with Nmo. LOL! Thank yo so much for reviewing, Fiondil. Lai
