This is hilarious! I can picture Gwindor and all of the other people that Turin ended up bringing deaths about like Sador giggling as they call him at such a crucial moment with Mandos yelling at them not to make prank calls...
Author's Response: ooh, I like the concept . . .the dead hand on speed dial. I sense a bunny.
This story made me laugh! Oh, I really enjoyed reading this piece, Ria. Thank you for sharing it.
Author's Response: Well, the silly muse escaped and went capering over the page naked (except for her clown wig and swim flippers). I'm glad if it entertains other people besides myself.
Ah! you've caught me at last! *sheepish grin* LOL! I have misused commas beyond count and I hardly edit my work as far as punctuation goes. So was this inspired by my horrible grammar track record? (because really, I know how bad it is sometimes.) ;P
Great work! Keep it up!
Author's Response: Well, everyone makes mistakes (and perhaps the electronic form encourages us to publish before we polish -- I like what your story has to say about the lure of reviews), but my story was not aimed at you. Instead, I was reading your story rather late at night and began to think about what other sorts of punishments that bad authors might earn.
LOL! If there is one thing that gets my goat it's a lack of respect for grammar and punctuation.
Author's Response: Yes. I sometimes fantasize about going on a graffiti spree to eliminate misused quotation marks and apostrophes on city signage. Of course -- sigh -- it's all too easy for me to make the mistakes.
Abseloutely hysterical! This little drabble was such a delight to read! You really nailed many of the sue cliches!
Author's Response: I guess I must be a repressed Suethor . . . I enjoy generating the little darlings (they are all mine, alas).
Nicely done - you integrated it really well into the seriousness of the tale's atmosphere (you're very good at that)... though I must say I had to read Lira's review before I could figure out quite what it was. I thought it was some sort of mp3 player initially. Anyway, as I said, nicely done.
Author's Response: Well, I guess it could have been an MP3 player. I can just imagine Turin having a cursed iPod.
That is a very clever twist on Gretchen Wilcon's song. It made my day. *hysterical laughing in the background*
Author's Response: Oh, I'm glad you liked it. Her songs are too clever not to riff on . . . I'm thinking maybe there's an "I'm Here for the Pipeweed" to be written.
And I was trying to reach Pizza Hotline... whoops.
Great story! Cool to see one about Turin.
Author's Response: Thanks. Turin just seemed like the right person to have his life messed up by a modern artifact (since he's already destiny's kickball anyway).
Author's Response: Thanks. I feel as if there's a sequel or related story in there somewhere.
This was interesting, i'm gonna take a wild guess and say it was a cell phone. Yes, that would definitely confuse someone from LOTR, especially Turin. Thanx for responding to my challenge, i'd completely forgotten about it actually ^L^ Oh well, myabe i'll have to check them every now and again. Anyway, this was good and i hope someone else has responded to the challenge which i shall check . . . now - Li
Author's Response: Thanks, Lira. People say that cell phones are evil, after all. I figured it would be a good thing to mess up a character's life.
You know, I've been thinking for ages I see no stories about Turin and then this comes. Although I think that tale makes me cry most of all the stories in the Silm I just about fell off my chair. [ I didn't notive the '' entirely silly '' note until after ] I just want to know, who was on the other end? d;-)
Author's Response: Well, this is Turin we're talking about: It was a wrong number. ;)
A very interesting idea, I liked it.
Author's Response: Thanks very much. I found the idea at the Borderland Crossover Archive, which is full of interesting mashups.
Nice! What's going to happen? Please update soon!
Author's Response: I'm a little torn about what's going to happen. It could easily end in tragedy, but I'd rather not. Thanks for the encouragement -- I will update.
Cute and amusing.
Author's Response: Thanks.
