I've really enjoyed reading the story thus far! Particularly with the complex and pitifully tragic relationship between Aragorn and Legolas. It's hard watching Aragorn do everything he does to Legolas, but harder to hate him for it, especially knowing what bitter irony it resulted from.

Above all, I believe I enjoyed the relationship between Legolas and Boromir. The slow gaining of trust and respect was really heartwarming and notable. I love seeing Boromir's kindness and interactions because, before the corruption of the ring, we know that he was a very noble and honorable man, yet we see sadly little of it. I can only dread future chapters when the Boromir that's grown on us must die. How tragic that end will be! 

Still, if you follow the plot, we should be seeing a similar type of growth between Gimli and Legolas. One that even Boromir's shouldn't be able to compare to. I really look forward to seeing that, if you ever plan on continuing this.

Overall, I'll say that I very much loved this story, and would really appreciate it if you would choose to continue.
