To See A World  by Nightwing 768 Review(s)
MirariReviewed Chapter: 5 on 9/11/2003
An intriguing piece of work. This comfortable little house seems a tad eerie to me, and I can't help but wonder if Aragorn and Legolas are as safe there as the Ranger seems to presume they are. Hmm...

You've definitely taken and held my interest! The characterization is bang-on for Legolas, and though Aragorn seems less experienced and more unsure than usual I am attributing that to his young age.

Wonderful job, and you can be sure I'll be back for more. ^^

Well, I've been following your story on, and I'm slowly making the transition here. You write the characters very well. Aragorn is a bit off, but he's also a lot younger then the books. Legolas, however, is right on. You've given him the perfect combination of eloquence and nobility. So far, he sound every bit of 3,000 years. (or so.) Congratulations on that. Generally, I've found that many authors make him sound too young and informal. But like I said, I'll be keeping an eye out for more updates, because I really can't imagine where you're going with it. But I'm sure it'll be great! Keep up the good work!

The flashback to the death of Legolas's mother was very well done. I liked the whole set up of famly relationships between the brothers and parents. And the picture of Mirkwood elves as "wild" was wonderful. Now I am wondering about whoever is leaving gifts.

Donít fret. I am here, loving this story to pieces, even if I do have trouble sometimes getting to the reviews page. But I also know those reviews are important food for the growing author, so I brought along my famous ďAuthor PraisesĒ stew to warm your soul. Maybe we should dish out some for Aragorn too. He seems to be suffering a bit and could use a little something to cheer him on. Of course, once he wakes up to find Legolas holding his hand, he might feel a little better.

Your prose is marvelous, and I am enjoying the poetry of your words as much as I am the torment of this story. Somehow Legolas will live, wonít he? Has a cure been found? Oh joy! But you wonít make it so easy for us, will you? Iím betting not. You keep mentioning Legolasí eyes, and it seemed like their were moments when he couldnít see before, so I expect the easing of this suffering will be only small. Something to rich up the stew?

The moments trapped in memory, are lovely and sad. The Elfís love for his mother is vividly clear. How lonely our little Legolas must have been without companions. I love the little telling moments when his mother shares her secrets with him. It is a beautiful little tale, this back material, and Iím hoping there will be more of it before we are done, and Iím wondering what it will add to the story as it unfolds.

Wonderful job, but ah, look, the stew is all gone. Devoured, and just that quickly. Tell you whatÖ put another chapter out, and Iíll make up another batch. Bigger this time. Yum!

Just to let you know that I'm reading this story and enjoying it. Writing that last chapter in one go is impressive! Hope that you update soon.

Very good job, I am enjoying. I sympathize with your CPR problem, I used it in my fics as well, it just seems to modern, but I do hate to use magic to make them breath! Great job!

I am so glad that you have posted this story at this most wonderful site and I will immediately add you to my author alert, which btw did not go off from so I was happy to come across your story here!

The description of Legolas and his mother was very moving. You captured quite well, the innocence and security little ones feel in the arms of their parents. It was so good of her to come and comfort him, and release back to his world, oh sob, her little explorer!

I am so glad Aragorn got some shut eye, my eyes were beginning to hurt for him!

That was wonderfully written. It would have been incredibly powerful if Legolas had passed, but I, of course, am glad that he did not. Please continue.
