And so he has found his reward indeed. Bound together now in body and heart, facing what will come with love and trust. And all witnessed by the emissary of the Valar themselves!

I have been fascinated by the romance of Aragorn and Arwen since I was in fifth grade, over thirty years ago. The long and bitter waiting, the sacrifices they both made to be together, the purity of Aragorn's love for his bride: it will never cease to fascinate me.

And this story is in keeping with all that. I love the way Aragorn thinks of the "mighty Elves she could have chosen to wed." A prince for one (Legolas), or a mighty reborn Elf-lord (Glorfindel) for another. With her beauty and her lineage, Arwen was indeed a trophy, not that seeking trophy wives seems in keeping with the character of the Eldar. But she must have been every "teenage" Elves' dream girl.

Thank you for a beautiful story.

Author Reply: Thank you for your much appreciated review. I've always been fascinated by this romance too and love the way Aragorn so patiently and faithfully waits for Arwen.

I'm delighted that you enjoyed my story.

What a beautiful, joyous, totally human and vulnerable scene. I wish it had been longer, and that's the best compliment I can give an author!

Then she appeared, leaning on her father's arm. Her beauty eclipsed the dancing sunbeams

Oh my, what an image.
