Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Sulien
Thanks muchly for sharing this, really I enjoyed this story. I love the idea of Wesley journeying to Middle Earth after he passed in "Not Fade Away" and meeting and falling in love with Legolas.
I did notice, however, that you apparently used the Grey Company's 'Grey Elvish' instead of either of Tolkien's Elvish languages. In Sindarin (the language Legolas speaks), my eagle is "thoronen" and my heart is "gûren". You might consider taking advantage of a couple of resources if you intend to use Tolkien's Elvish in further fanfiction. The Dragonflame (downloadable free interactive dictionary with tengwar transcription of words) interactive dictionary is indispensable for Sindarin, and the Ardalambion site is great for both Quenya and Sindarin. If you're only interested in a few phrases, Orchyd Constyne's site, http://www.hithanaur.net/elvish.cfm
is a great resource. If you are interested in learning either Sindarin or Quenya, the Council of Elrond's language section has complete lessons at http://www.councilofelrond.com
Dragonflame can be downloaded here, at http://www.jrrvf.com/hisweloke/sindar/df20.html
