Swan Song  by Conquistadora 4 Review(s)

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. :)

So - shark for dinner - but no hákarl? (That would certainly have put curl into the chest hairs of the guests. Though that dish takes 6-12 weeks to ... ahem, prepare.)
So this chapter, and the next, describes the food, some fashion choices, and the incompareble perfection of Elves, especially Thranduil. And Bad Guys are planning stuff.

His own family history is being confirmed this evening. I can appreciate his excitement!

Well, I have to agree with Imrahil here...those elves are incredible ;) It's fun to see our beloved Thranduil and Legolas from the point of view of someone who isn't very familiar with elves.
