Last Grey Ship, The

I found these 3 chapters to move in sync with the way Tolkien wrote The Lord of the Ring. It gave a bitter-sweet look into what could have happened after the Ending of LOTR. As i read tear flowed freely down my face and I had a deep ache in my heart as if i was the one losing the friends. It ached even more as Gimli and Legolas talk of their own parting of ways and I cried even harder. At the end my heart smiled and i was at peace.

Awesome story!! A true inspiration from above. A divine gift. A complement and extention of Tolkiens Lord of the Ring!

I look forward to reading more of your works!!!

I know it's been years since this was published, but I only just found a copy on a site where I can actually leave a comment about it. So this is long overdue.

Out of all the LOTR fanfics I've read (and there have been many) only two or three have ever managed to come close to Tolkien's original style and depth. The Last Grey Ship was by far the best-written of these.

I thought you captured the characters and the relationships between them perfectly, the descriptions were some of the most vivid I've ever read in a fanfic, and Tolkien himself could have written the dialogue. And the last three paragraphs especially had such beautiful imagery that, almost alone among anything I've read, they not only managed to move me almost to tears the first time I read the story, but still do every time I read it.

In short, this story was amazing, and I'd like to thank you for writing it. You definitely deserved all those awards you won for it.
