I love The Lord of the Rings. Legolas is my favorite for more that just looks. I had a whole long thing written out on why he is my favorite but my iPod decided to refresh the page and I am not typing a that again. My self-given elvish name is Anariel, because I'm a redhead and have flame colored hair and a fiery temperment to match the sun. Well, actually, most of the time I am calm and to nice too kill a spider (hate the nasty things), but when someone crosses me, I LET THEM KNOW that they crossed me, to say the least. And I have blue eyes, like the sky, which adds to the whole sun thing.
I had a LONG list here before, but of all the things I like about Legolas, the things i like most are his eyes (physical) and how even though he kills, like, every enemy, he still has an... I guess.. Innocence about him.

I like your story a lot, but i have some criticisms. Your character Amandra seems to be a bit of a marry-sue. In other words she seems way to perfect. I mean, she's related to a king, she's a skilled warrior, she can talk to animals, she's aquaimted with Legolas, so on. Also, when she told Legolas to kiss an Orc, she wasn't speaking in his native language, because in fotr, when there were orcs he said "yrch" or something like that and Tolkien said that he said it in his native tongue. But I like the story. This is the first fanfiction I've read about haldir, as he is not one of my favorite characters. Legolas, Aragorn, and Frodo are, in that order. Bit it is a good story so far.

Author's Response: I appreciate your honest input and appraisal. Obviously this story is quite old. I do defend the fact that she knows Legolas as a byproduct of her being related to Aragorn. I was drawing on a desire to remember that Aragorn had a life before he went to live with the Elves, though I confess that was very loosely interpreted by me, as I have not read anything about just how old Aragorn was when he was brought to Elrond. There is truly no way to win with original female characters. If they are too frail and dependent, they are MarySue. If they are too capable, they are MarySue. I like this story, and I confess to reading Robert Jordan's Wheel of time, almost non-stop since 1996 and the man loved to write incredibly strong, independent, beautiful, talented and strong women who were not at all MarySue. At any rate, I am still reading WoT and am considering going with the AU spin I was heading for on this one. If I can find the time to write again! Thanks for reading and for your input.

Hahahahah this is hilarious! Inwas laughing so hard. Saruwomen. Hehehe. This is true about women to a certain degree, but a lot of it is over used stereotypes. But it made me laugh so hard.

Summary: Not trusting at all, then trusting completely. Lost, but not forever. Alone, but not forgotten. Loved, but not without loss.
This is a tale of friendship, family, adventure, and love.

Note: I have no clue what movie verse is, but I had to pick a category so... Enjoy!
