Wonderful story. And aside from the obvious intention, I enjoyed the tradition of storytelling a lot. It's something that's slowly dying out nowadays. But that Legolas would keep that story with him during his life and then tell it to someone else - it's just powerful!
Please forgive the lateness of this response; I don't check in at FicWad that often.
Thank you for reading and reviewing the story - I write Elves very rarely, so I'm glad you found the story, and the storytelling, entertaining. I found the image of Legolas turning the fall of Oropher in the Last Alliance into a bedtime story for a Fourth Age human child irresistible.
