Thank you, Oshun, for your very generous comments, I'm delighted you are enjoying the story - such positive remarks are so very encouraging to a writer. :-)
The story will continue (I've already written the Epilogue), but I confess the posting may be slow-ish. I plan now to write the complete remaining Elvish thread before returning to the Mannish side of the story, and then I'll post the chapters alternately so the time-frame remains coherent. Re-writing much of the original takes time! ~_^
I'm glad you like the Elves - I've always considered them fierce and dangerous beings, alike to us, but ultimately with a different agenda. Noble yes, but capable of passion and anger, and certainly of cold, casual violence when it comes to dealing with orcs. 'We may look like you, but we are not you... never forget that!' is what one of them says. I think that's how it should be.
