It's been ages since you updated this mellon nin, i don't even know why i'm reading it, i suppose i'm just bored . . . just because i liked you back then doesn't mean . . . oh sorry, singing at the moment, good HANNAH MONTANA song. ^L^ Talk to ya laterz - Li
Author's Response: Good news, an update's coming VERY soon. Uh...ok...nice to know you read my fics when you're bored :S rnYa, talk laterz!
Awww, so sweet. The thought of Elrond holding puppies is just adorable! Sorry it took me so long to read/review.
Author's Response: Don't worry about it. Where have you been, I've been worried about you :) Yeah, elves and puppies, triple cuteness!
My mums going to get me choclate but i'll have some of yours if ya giv it to me ^_^ There must be something wrong, you didnt ask a question this time, i'l send Elrond after you, he migt figure out what's wrong. Talk to ya soon - Li
Author's Response: *Quickly pushes chocolate into your hands and runs from Elrond* Nothing wrong with me, I was just tired and I rnforgot to think of a question. I may think of one for the next chapter...Hmm...
I really enjoyed this! I love the dialogue and that flashback, - I like flashbacks, and how they show different insights into people - and the characterization. I'm glad you found time to update this. keep going! Happy Yule!
Author's Response: Yeah, flashbacks are incredibly useful...plus who doesn't love ickle elflings? Happy Yule!
Not sure who Nymph should be assosciated with but i'm gonna be weird and say Elladan and i don't know why. I miss ya lotz, stuck at my grandparents' house and there's this dark aura in my grandads study but a recent event explains why, he carked it on Saturday night so im staying in NZ for another week and a half, that's why i haven't been posting and i can't get into my emails either so i can't write to you. Hope to talk to ya soon - Li
Author's Response: *Gasps* *Huggles* You poor thing! And so close to Christmas! My great-gran died the day after Boxing Day, so I knowrnhow you feel!rnAw, I miss you loads too, things aren't the same without you bouncing around (Figuritivly)rnLOL, naturally, choose the one person who all the clues DON'T point to. Who knows, will you be right?
I don't know about the pairings, as I'm not good with het, I always want tp pair guys with guys.
( Dark Elf bitch sounds interesting, some-one who gets called a bitch is usually good writing material, lol, d;-).) But I reviewed to say that I like your writing, your dialogue, and the way it flows and I'm glad you've got a new chapter up. Sorry you are overloaded with work. Hope you can chill a bit at Christmas any-way.
Author's Response: I know, I have an M/M pairing in mind (Het relationships just appeared in this series) but this isn't really a slash thing...rnI may include it anyway thougn ^_^rnWell, hopefully she WILL be interesting... but that is unfortunately another story.rnAw, thanks *Hugs*rnChill? Oh no problem, I'll just go stand outside in the cold, LOL. Seriously, it is freezing over here, and with the amountrnof revision our teachers are setting us chilling is gonna be hard...bring on the summer! (After the exams!)rnThanks for reviewing!
Lol, I love the title of this chapter. Totally random, yet it makes sense too.
Uhm... I have no idea who she will end up with (Legolas maybe? His brother would have to kill him for that), but as for who I want her to end up with... that would be Libren. I mean, he is so obviously in love with her.
*holds out hands for both cookies and chocolate snowman* ;D
Author's Response: LOL, he couldn't be any more obviously in love with her if he suddenly went down on one knee with a rose serenadingrnher!rnlol, the theory about 'Las is incorrect...but it would be amusing to watch Libren kill Legolas. :O I am evilly mean!rn*Hands over cookies and chocolate snowman* I really REALLY need to make some of these biscuits ;'(
WOAH!!!! Well, u already know one OC that i'd like dead coz he's evil and he hurt my Ro and Dan. I don't really know which of your good OCs i don't like, maybe Libren but i'm not really sure. I'll read some of The Black Rose again and i'll answer the question properly. Talk to ya soon - Li
Author's Response: Mwhaha, I am evil, aren't I. Yep, I know you hate Marko's guts. *Puppy eyes* Please answer the question asap, my plot bunnies are dying!
Heh, Legolas is allways getting into troule like this! Poor guy! He's gonna have fun with this one... accidently killing a guy..
And as for which of your OC's should die...
As much as I would LOVE one of those double chocolate chip cookies, and I'm afraid I can't answer. I love all your OC's (excpet Marko of course) and it would make me sad if any of them died. So I guess a regular cyber cookie will have to do for me. ;)
Author's Response: lol, poor 'Las, the things I put him through...rn*Sighs* *Gives you half a double choc chip cookie for being the lucky 13th reviewer and a normal cookie* You love them all huh? The plot bunnies love you ¬_¬ But one will die! ^_^ rn
Good, I have often wanted to see an obnoxious drunk get killed ;). Too short, but good, and a good way to end it.
Oddly, I have been musing on a futre plot to kill a character, and unfortunately, it nearly always is true that the one you and every-one like's the most, works best for a story. :( It's sad, but it's always more poignant than killing some-one who really deserves it. Although that is satisfying too of course. But for drama and angst and tears: the one people like should die . The person who least deserves it, and no-one wants to see go. :( That always gets me sniffing in stories and thinking '' Nooo! ''.
Author's Response: XD Sorry about the shortness! *Hands over virtual cookie* rnHm...I sorta had a plan, but it's falling through because I planned to make everyone love a character and then kill them but at the moment they seem to be a background character...rnThanks for the review!
Gemini_Elf. here is no excuse for people to hurl insults at this, in my opinion. '' Literary Critics '' rubbished Tolkien, remember? He was flatly told the Silmarillion would never be published, he became very depressed about it, since it was his '' Life work '', more that LOTR. If people give you '' constructive criticism '' that is helpful, although that should be given as a teacher would, if they looked through a paper. Do not get upset. Even '' real '' critics, in the end , are voicing their own opinons. Once I read what some said of Tolkien, I decided none were worth listening to. I do not see what the problem is. It reads well, which is always what I look for. What do they want? Toynbee? Don't worry, I have had agent's tell me my writing lacked depth, when I was 21, and was so mortified I curled up in a ball of shame. Ever after, I tried to concentrate on that, and I don't know if I have suceeded even so many years later. Each time you write, you are growing in vocabulary, and fluidity and in skill, remember that. Don't stop or be put off. Writing should be enjoyable, and something we love doing. Keep going. :)
Author's Response: XD Thanks dudette! Depression passed and now I'm mildly better (Most of the rest of my life remains cr**) I decided to carry this on...I mean...now FF's a central part of my life. I CAN'T give it up anymore than I could chop off my right hand (My writing hand) *Hugs* Thanks for your support!
OMG. I cannot believe that! those FF.net 'police' are insane! I love it! Don't listen to them Gemini!
Author's Response: Well, I'll definitly keep posting here! Trufully, I love the fic too much to give it up! *Hands over another virtual cookie*
THIS IS NOT RUBBISH!!!! I've already told you! Please keep writing this mellon nin, i wanna see what Elrond has to say about the brands. Marko's evil, he dies, he can't live, if you let him live then i'll kill him. He doesn't harm my boys and gets away with it! Nobody does! *glares evilly* Except in fanfic coz it's not true, that completely defies what i just said. Talk to ya soon - Li
Author's Response: Heh heh, I forgot to give you a virtual cookie last time *Hands over two* lol, baying for Marko's blood ALREADY!? Hmm...Not ENITRELY sure what Elrond will say about the brands...could be interesting to write!
ooo! I want a virtual cookie!!! lol. Love the thing about Legolas' eyes + mortal woman = Mortal woman melting! Its probably true. If Legolas looked at me, I would SO melt! XD good chapter, post more soon!
Author's Response: *Hands over virtual cookie* lol. Enjoy! ^_^ lol, if 'Las looked into my eyes, I think you'd notice a little trickle of drool coming out of my mouth (Eiw!)
Well somebody woke up on the demanding side of the bed this morning. Hope Dan & Ro are alright. Couldn't care less bout Estel LOL, no love for the human kid, i like Aragorn though. Anyway, this was a good chapter but a few mistakes, talk to ya laterz - Li
Author's Response: lol, he's drunk actually ;) lol, more twins and Estel next chapter...and they get hurt! *Squeals*

oooo slave traders. Hehe. Did Tarrin make it? Will help come? *plays drmatic music* I hope so, but dont let them get saved to soon! :D
Author's Response: Yeah, Tarrin made it last chapter ^_^ The time-line is majorlly messed up! Help will come...eventually. *Poses to dramatic music* Don't worry, this fic will drag on for a while before they are "saved" XD Thanks for reviewing!
This is a good chapter. I can't wait to read more, the suspense of waiting is ripping me apart. Oh wait, that's an orc, ****!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL Gotta go, cya - Li
