(copy and pasting this from the Slashy Santa website, in case I lose this review too!)
I've read this a couple of times already, and I wanted to tell you how very much I enjoyed this! I was surprised anyone took up this pairing, since Haldir/Beleg is a rather peculiar one (as many of my ships are, which you've seen when you got your assignment!), but you've created a very beautiful scenario using the characters. I would never have thought of Haldir being an elf of Doriath, and I appreciated such an original view on one of my favorite elves. :) Beleg also I enjoyed with all my heart.
Lyrical is definitely what I would call your writing style! Very elven, and slight melancholic? Or perhaps that was Haldir's heart breathing through. I like that things weren't tied together at the end, leaving the reader to wonder what happens next. You've given us poignant snapshots of what is a long and winding road, and I am pleased I got to glimpse into part of the road of their story.
Thank you for writing this lovely tale for me! :)

I really like this! I hope there is more?
I loved that you fleshed out Haldir's past much more, I think most people just stick with the Haldir of Lorien and don't wonder whether he was originally from somewhere much much older and perhaps now sundered under the sea!
Please post more soon x
Author's Response: Hello and thank you for reading and reviewing! This story is meant to stand on it's own as it was part of a story exchange, but I have been toying with the idea of a follow-up in Valinor. I will certainly post it if it gets written!

I really like this - the sense of sorrow and loss at the changes around, and at things that might have been, but weren't, and then the sense of hope to finish - lovely.
