What a lovely tale! Rarely is Thranduil portrayed in a kindly light, but I am glad you have chosen to do so. I quite enjoyed your story!
Author's Response: Thank you, m'lady Eleiel. I very much appreciate the gift of a return read. And I'm glad you enjoyed a more kindly Thranduil. I can easily imagine Legolas turning into a handful as the centuries roll along, but I couldn't envision an elven father who would have chosen with his wife to conceive, turning his back on a child of this tender age. And isn't it nice when canon aids and abets the what-if game!
It was a special pleasure to find the first ever story review for this archive, in my inbox last night. You made my day!
