And I thank you once again for answering my challenge so well. (I am Shadow Maiden, I just wanted to throw someone off my trail as it were)
Author's Response: You're very welcome, Daewen. I had no idea you changed to a new pen name. I look forward to reading your future contributions.
This is quite funny, It's good and humorous and it portrays Arwen as a wife which I have not seen that many times. It is very well written and I did not see any mistakes at all. Well done, continue with your writing!
Author's Response: To tell you the truth, I could not think of Arwen as anything else but a wife, since all my stories take place in the Fourth Age. As for the lack of typos, I can't really take full credit for that. I use Windows Word 2003, which self-corrects most spelling and punctuation errors. Thanks for reading and reviewing.
Haha "It's just not regal enough." Very well done. I enjoyed reading it.
Author's Response: Elrond was an Eldarin lord, so Arwen undoubtedly lived most of her life in royal households. While it might not have made her a complete prig about protocol, I think she wouldn't have been able to resist fussing over Aragorn's appearance whenever he decided to appear before at an official function in casual dress. Perhaps I should have also had him mutter in frustration, "Who's king around here, anyway?"
Funny story and I loved the ending, what more is there to say? Great, keep writing!
Author's Response: Thank you, Sil. Perhaps I'll post other humorous or serious vignettes from "Arwen's Journey" for those who can't or won't read it on account of the NC-17 rating.
I liked this much, it's a nice little episode what the married life of Aragorn and Arwen could have been. In the books and movies their relationship is depicted being so "official" and a little pompous that small scenes like these enliven at least my image of their life together. I general your skill in characterization and dialogue makes always enjoyable read.
Author's Response: Although Aragorn (as King Elessar) is a man of courage and determination, I've always felt that, in the royal couple's private life, Arwen could bend him to her will without being a shrew. Like most royal families, they would appear a bit pompous to the general public. In my stories, however, I've tried to portray them and their children as ordinary folks when they're behind closed doors.
Thanks for the review, Formegil. I'll be sure to get back to reading and reviewing your stories when I'm back on my winter schedule.
