Ah the price one pays for over-confidence and underestimating... Like father like Son? :D This and the previous chapter have your magic sprinkled all over them. ~ Iri
Author's Response: Legi learned from the best! Thranduil's charm definitely spilled over onto his son I think.
Loved this story, just the right balance of humour, smut, and sweetness. enjoyed every word of it, thanks for writing!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. It's nice to see a new reviewer for this story. I'm happy you enjoyed it.
Yet another wonderful story! How do you do it? At this moment I am so distracted that I do not know when my next chpater will go up but you appear to have no problem in this regard - how I envy you. Thranduil was very desirable, and Alastegial beautifully strong and capable. There was a lovely sweetness to your story which made it even better. Well done to you :)
Author's Response: You are too kind. Writing is so new to me that I find myself writing every day. I have a lot of ideas in my head and so I put them down in black and white. If I didn't, it would keep me up at night. So happy you liked this story. I've come to love this Thranduil. He may have been a fearful leader but he was also a family man(elf). I believe he had a lot of love in his heart and he would have needed someone equally strong. It would have taken two very strong and courageous people to produce as son such as Legolas. Thank you so much for following along. Your lovely reviews definitely boost my confidence and make me want to do more.
OH! That was so sweet. The beginnings of Legolas parents courtship and bonding. Then finally the birth of the prince of Green Wood the Great. And what a hot prince he 'STILL' is. Thank You. *Applauding* Great Work. Author, author! You do some real good stories. You know if you tried, I bet you could actually write a book and publish it. A beautiful romance of some kind. Renaissance, Fairy, Elven lore. I really do believe that.
Author's Response: Wow regaliaria. No one has ever said that before. I've never considered myself a real author. I've only started writing just a few months ago. I've never taken a class. I hated to read growing up. I wouldn't even know the first thing about becoming published. I just like doing what I do here on this little site. It gives me so much satisfaction. And then I read a review like this and it completes the circle. You are very sweet to say such nice things. Just knowing that someone like you appreciates my work is all the satisfaction I need. It's comments like yours that keep me going. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
We meet again milady! I like this start here. I have not read any very young Thranduil's before. This one has a great start. If there is one, I probably did not look good enough. But I like the beginning of this, shall we sort of say, "A long and beautiful relationship" Maybe. Hehehehe. On with the show.
Author's Response: Thank you again regaliaria. You made my day once again. Feeling under the weather with a stomach virus so it was nice to read your kind words.
