Swan Song  by Conquistadora 32 Review(s)
Meddwl (Shire Rose)Reviewed Chapter: 11 on 8/8/2017
Ahhh where to begin? This whole story was lovely and I quite like your Thranduil. Congratulations to you and your husband, the Imrahil fan. You have crafted a decidedly Tolkienesque story with some delightful details that are all your own. I look forward to watching this tale unfold.

It is probably a good thing that there are currently no more chapters or I would be up all night reading this. I find the thought of 4th age Gondor to be so fascinating and I love how you are showing so many different characters and their roles in the new age. (Also I really like your Thranduil. He's the perfect mix of the dangerous king Tolkien warns us about and the good Elven ruler he had to have been to earn his people's loyalty. I am excited to see how he and his elves handle what's to come.)

Hero points to Legolas for pulling my precious Faramir out of the flames! Nasty assassins! Hopefully the plot will be uncovered before more Elves are killed or they try again to kill Faramir.

Nice description of the markets of Pelargir.

Imrahil as "Elessar's bulldog"; very appropriate!

Aw, poor Beleg. Wrong place, wrong time. Falathar is making very evil plans!

Falathar is a scummy slaver; but his son has a blood claim on the Stewardship? I'm wondering who Falathar's wife was...The plot thickens!

Interesting beginning. I enjoyed the extrapolation of Gondor's prosperity in the postwar early Fourth Age, and the look at the preparations of Imrahil's feasting of the Elvenking.

Tolkien never called Legolas "Prince of Ithilien", though. That title is Faramir's alone.

Author Reply: So glad you're enjoying it! Tolkien never called Legolas much of anything, but we'll grant you the point. We meant he was "a" prince of Ithilien, not THE Prince of Ithilien. :)

Oh my word, I am so anxious for them to finally catch this guy before anything else happens! Eagerly (and somewhat apprehensively) awaiting the next installment.

Oh no! :-(

I hope this does make things far more difficult for them....this whole plot is just so wretched. Very smart of (can't think of assasin's name :-P) to get Falathar's ring, or he would be totally thrown to the wolves when this is all over -- no doubt about that. These are not the sort of Men who can be trusted...

It does sound like a great party, though...exactly the type of celebration I would expect from such an occasion. I would hope that the whole thing won't be ruined by this dastardly (heehee) plot...but I doubt it.

Thanks for writing!

Yes, they are dangerous! Don't try it! (Somehow, I feel they will not listen to me... :-P)

Poor Legolas -- he has every right to be in a bad mood, as does Arwen, and he is so right -- eventually Thranduil's going to be crabby one day, and then things will get ugly...

So much going on here ... I have no idea where and when they will attempt to strike, but it's definitely coming...

I'm enjoying this, thanks so much for writing!
