Nice story, Amarok!! You need have no fears about how you handle the English language. :) I really like how this shows both sides of Aragorn: the man who occasionally loses sight of hope, and the man who almost supernaturally maintains hope when all others despair. There's a bit of paradox in Aragorn and through the eyes of Legolas you captured that so well. I also love the phrase "Biting back another bubble of laughter"--great imagery! ;)
Author's Response: Hiya :-). Thanks for your praise! Yes, the two sides of the 'hope'-thematic for Aragorn... a neverending source for stories... ;-). Glad you like how I did it :-).
