Author's Response: Oh dear. Really must fix that XD.
keep up the good work and i'll try and read the next part.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you enjoyed the story, as I loved writing it. I hope you enjoy the next part as well, should you choose to read it.
Author's Response: I thought the anticlimax was pretty funny; that's why I let Jack have the glory ;). Thank you for reading and reviewing.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm glad you're enjoying it.
Author's Response: Well, of course Balian's still alive *grins* Everyone else is still at the mercy of the evil plot bunny! *tries to catch said pesky rabbit and fails*
Author's Response: Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter. I love nasty cliffhangers :) only when I'm the one writing them, of course.
YAY! Angst! Killing! Loved this! It was...like the best chocolate cake and ice-cream made into a fic! (If that makes ANY sense...Basiaclly it was brilliant!)
Author's Response: Yes, I suppose sending elven assassins to kill me does count...*runs and hides* Thanks for the review. It was quite angsty, wasn't it? ;) I hope the confusing bit got cleared up.
keep up the good work and update soon.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you liked the battle scenes; they're the results of watching violent period movies over and over again ;) As for Balian's survival, you'll find out in the next chapter.
Um...yeah Jack...Jars of dirt...
Why'd you have to kill sexy Haradric Prince!? But good way for him to go, backstabbing lovers are SO cool
Uh oh...Is Barisan going to encounter his dad!?
Author's Response: Yay! I thought PotC 3 wasn't as good as PotC 2, but it was still pretty cool, if a bit convoluted. Love Jack and his jars of dirt ;) Xerxes had...uh...reached the end of his usefulness, and at the moment, the only female characters I can write seem to be evil ones or angry mothers :P. Thanks for the review. As for Barisian, you'll find out soon enough :D
keep up the great work and thanks for writing.
Author's Response: Thanks very much. Good people surrounded on all sides is a lot of fun to write, if a bit difficult at times. Still, it makes me think of the weirdest ways to get them out of trouble. Thanks for reading.
thanks for writing
Xerxes had reached the end of his usefulness, for me and for his lovely lady *sheepish grin* Indeed, we do see more of Balian in the next chapter. In fact, we'll see a lot of him :) Thanks for reading.
And geez, even *I* could do a better assassination attempt than that...Well...The Narrator could anyway XD
Author's Response: If Faramir hadn't been working late, Aragorn might very well have consumed the poison. It's just a lucky break :) And now Balian feels really really guilty about Beregond *pats on back* Thanks for the review.
keep up the great work
Author's Response: I had fun with the ships' names, trying to link them all to the pirates' movies. Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: They will at least cause the enemy to do a double take, and give the crew enough time to retaliate ;) Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: Little Bari will be getting his Papa back. In what state, I'm not sure, but he will be back. Balian tends to keep his promises :) Thanks for the review. *hugs*
Captain John Smith! No...Captain Joe Swann? Captain...What IS the answer to that question...? ;)
Author's Response: Feeding my sadistic side too :P I'll leave you to figure out the answer to the question ;) Thanks for reviewing.
keep up the good work x
I like Balian very much, so I tend to give him a hard time ;) Doesn't make much sense, I know. The traitors in Gondor just add to the fun.
Thanks for the review.
in response to what you said to my last review. i know what you mean about the swords, i have theodens sword herugrim and i can only just lift it never mind fight with it hehe.
thanks for writing and keep up the good work x
Will trying to beat up Jack is inevitable :) It was fun to throw that in. Sarvenaz is pure villain, and she'll prove it ;)
I agree that Achilles in Gondorian armour would look very weird, and that's probably part of why he was so nervous. He's afraid he might look like an idiot.
You're lucky, to have one of those swords. I want a crusader one, but I haven't found a shop which sells them yet.
Thank you for reviewing.
lol, I wouldn't trust Guy's competence either if I was Narbazanes...
Sarvenaz is very convincing, no need to kill her off worrywart.
LOL, yes, I see why the words Balian and Tact are never together in the same sentence...XD Keep it up and congrats on the nomination!
I really don't know what booboo's are. :P I just know that little children find it hard to say bye bye, so I needed a substitution :) What a coincidence.
I do worry overmuch. Glad you thought Sarvenaz was convincing though. I'm sure I based her off one of the many characters which I know...can't remember which one.
'Balian' and 'tact' can be in the same sentence ;) as in 'Balian has no tact at all.'
Thanks for the review and the congrats *huggles*.
Author's Response: Thanks very much for the review. Do you think Xerxes is a bit of a Gary Stu??? I don't really want my OC's taking over the story. The women will need to know how to fight. It will come in very handy later on...I won't reveal too much just yet :P Achilles idolizes Aragorn as 'a king who fights his own battles'. It's funny, actually.
great detail and i love the womens little rebellion with learning to fight.
keep up the good work and thanks for sharing this
Author's Response: Marton Csoskas did a wonderful job with Guy, I thought. Glad you liked the rebellious ladies. However, they'll find fighting less easier than they'd originally thought. Those swords are about 10 pounds each, at the very least. Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: I'm not sure I'm the one who comes up with the jokes. *takes off hat to Captain Jack Sparrow*. I'm still trying to get onto the main plot. People don't seem to want to hurry up ;) Thanks very much for the review! *hugs*
Author's Response: I'm glad you didn't think it was boring. My beta (i.e. my brother) skipped over all the Balian bits. I am so horrible to Balian that sometimes I feel that I should be doing something to make up for all of it... ;) Thanks for reading and reviewing.
I loved the depth of emotion in Sibylla's dying scene, it bought tears to my eyes, and poor Barisian!
Spot-on with …omer's "Ends justify the means" attitude
and I am very amused by Jack and Barbossa and Faramir and Aragorn's reactions to them XD Just too funny!
Author's Response: Hmm, Balian in New Zealand...GLOMP. Yes, poor little boy, and poor solo dad Balian. Just as well he's not going to France ;) He'll need some help to raise his kid. Aragorn and Faramir are still wondering about what Jack and Barbossa are. They won't figure it out anytime soon :P Thanks for reviewing!
Author's Response: It's my life's goal to make people laugh (and think). Thanks for the review.
