To See A World  by Nightwing 775 Review(s)
LegolassReviewed Chapter: Author's Notes on 3/25/2017
Dear Nightwing,

I never had the privilege of knowing you personally, but I did have the privilege of reading your story. It will remain very dear to me for a few reasons: first, it was one of the first few fanfiction stories of any kind that I'd ever read; second, it demonstrates writing and plot of the highest quality; and last but not least, it captures the friendship of Aragorn and Legolas so beautifully that it inspired my own story (For the Love of the Lord of the White Tree). Your name shall remain cited in my humble tale.

In the face of your illness, what you wrote may seem less important, but I hope you see it as a legacy to everyone who had the pleasure of taking the journey with you. It has entertained and inspired. As you go through the next part of your life, I hope you find the kind of love and support you wrote so articulately about, from the people around you.

Gandalf said: "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” I know you will spend it with wisdom and fortitude (I remember how you took care of your daughter), and I wish for you much peace and serenity in the days to come.

With the greatest respect,

Dear Lori, I'm deeply saddened by this news and I want to wish you to live fully the days that remain to you and to find peace at the end of the road. This was the first LOTR fanfiction I ever read and I loved it. It was one of my comfort reads, the one I turned to when I needed support. Thank you from the deep of my heart for this wonderful tale.

Dear Nightwing,

All my deepest love and blessings go out to you. I hold you in my heart and thoughts and always will, not only because of your wonderful story, which was one of the first I found when entering fanfic, but because when I ever interacted with you, you have been such a lovely person. It is my deep belief we will one day meet 'in person' as it were. Sending you peace, my dear.

Love Siān

My Dear Lori,
It is with great sadness that I write this. I know anything I, a stranger may write will seem hollow but please believe that your story has brought me many hours of enjoyment. I love your writing and TSAW will forever be a favorite.

Be Blessed Mellon, prayers and love go out to you and your family

Dear Nightwing/Lori,

I was very saddened to hear your news. You have had a very difficult time obviously and I cannot imagine how you have managed to write despite everything. Thank you for this tale - the relationship between Aragorn and Legolas was beautifully detailed. It has given me great pleasure to have followed this tale over the years.

I had wondered at times at the time intervals between updates but it all makes sense now. I am so sorry.
I wish you peace and no pain and blessings. With all my love. Noor
