Title: Misfortune Reviewer: Spiced Wine Signed
I am glad I could give you a nudge! :) I know it must be difficult, almost impossible with your workload, but perhaps it would also be quite relaxing for you to write something that is not part of your course. I hope so :)

Author's Response: It really is...I'm working on All Our Yesterdays now. The ball has begun rolling once again :) thank you, San.

Oh!! How can you leave it like that?

I am glad you still have time to work on this, Narya!

Author's Response: I realised when I read your Van/Maglor fic this morning that I really, really missed writing my fanfic. Once I finished Second Chance I sort of got out of the swing of these now I'm trying to get back into it again. Thanks for your readership and support, as always. Hugs.

Title: A Tale of Three Reviewer: tinara Signed
I'm very happy to see an update to this story, I simply fell in love with the three and am quite curious what will happen to them.
I liked the chapter very much, Haddan is very attentive to Leo's reactions. I hope he can reach out to his friend and show him a way to be free from the influence of his father. From the chapter I think Leo would be quite happy in such an apprenticeship but has those ideas his stupid father planted in his mind about being a "real man".
Please continue!

Author's Response: I shall do - keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of days ;) I'm NaNoing at the moment, but this makes a nice break, and I've got lots of ideas bubbling. Thanks again for following and reviewing!

Title: Stars Reviewer: tinara Signed
A great scene, it was touching and foreboding. It's great how you subtly shift the relationship between these three. I hope Leo's not up to something stupid?
I wonder if at least Haddan will speak about those confusing thoughts and feelings with Berthe, though I fear he won't. I guess it's difficult for them - feeling for each other like brothers but not being brothers and now those new feelings while touching (what I think was perfectly normal for them before). And Filwyn who is still too young to truly understand but cannot keep her mouth shut.
I really like your exploration of these three and hope you will update soon.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you for such a lovely, in-depth review! I'm really glad you're enjoying it :) the shifting of the relationships between them isn't necessarily planned; it's just what feels right when I'm writing. The story's already gone wandering off in a direction I didn't think it would take. Thanks again for R&Ring, as always!

I think that Haddan and Leofwyne are going to be an adorable couple. Hopefully Filwyn doesn't have a crush on Leofwyne...that could be bad.

How will she react when she figures them out?

Author's Response: Ahh, you'll have to wait and see. Glad you're enjoying it, though :) thanks for R&Ring, as ever!

Title: Family Reviewer: callerofcrows Signed
From one sad story/chapter to another! Just came from reading the latest chapter of "Second Chance". This chapter brought tears to my eyes. Poor Leofwyne.

Author's Response: I know, bless him. He's possibly my favourite out of the three, although I do seem to keep heaping misery on him...ah well. No story without conflict :) I'm glad it made you cry - well, not glad, but, y'know. Glad it produced a reaction. Thank you for the review!

Title: Stars Reviewer: Spiced Wine Signed
Not originally how I thought this scene was going to play out, but hey. What do you think?

I love it. This is so tender and young, and beautiful.

Leofwyne’s shaking fingers trailed along the delicate shape of his ear and across his jaw to his lips – and then they were withdrawn, leaving a cool gap like a bruise on his skin.

Works for me :D

Author's Response: Glad to hear it! :D they've a long way to go yet - they're only 13, after all. Thanks for following and reviewing!!

Oh, I am late, I was battling the dreaded lurgy.
I am so pleased you have added to this chapter, I really love this immersion into Rohan and these people.

I am extremely glad for Leofwyne - and as for his mother, I do realize it was harder in that society to leave a husband than it is now; I am sorry for her, but she was offered a place.

Gret stuff!!

Author's Response: Thank you!! And don't worry about it :) just glad you're still enjoying. Hope your lurgy is better.

Title: Family Reviewer: tinara Signed
It's nice to see you pick up this story. I like it very much, especially the close friendship between the three children.
I'm very relieved to see Leo safe - if there won't be a problem with his father coming. But I'm wondering a bit how Berthe manages to care for the children on her own? I take it, money is no problem for her?

Author's Response: Money is not a huge problem, no; as well as receiving the Rohirric equivalent of a war widow's pension, Berthe is in fact a seamstress, so she earns her own living, though obviously I've neglected to mention it in the actual story. Problem will be rectified ASAP :) thank you for reading and reviewing!

Title: Family Reviewer: Anwyn Signed
What a fascinating yet heartbreaking chapter, well done! The exchange between the woman was perfectly terse and very natural, I could definately sense Aedre's fear and I felt very conflincted about her character in that I feel pity for her yet also I cannot believe she would abadon her son and yes I understand she is afraid but at the same time she is drowning and even when she is offered a hand out she would not take it. Ah, curse that fierce Rohirrim pride!

Very much looking forward to more of this story!

Author's Response: "Curse that fierce Rohirrim pride"...well, there's plenty more of it to come! Glad you still like it; apologies for the long hiatus, I'll try and keep up the momentum from now on :) thanks for taking the time to read and review!

Title: Hold My Hand Reviewer: Anwyn Signed
Another beatifullly written and touching chapter. It is always such a treat to see this story updated as I have seriously grown so attached to each of your OC's as they are so wonderfully unique and I am throughly looking forward to being able to follow the story as they grow older and how the dynamics will change between them but for now they are really incredibly dear.

Author's Response: Aww, thank you Anwyn! I'm glad you like the characters; this story never seems to get as many hits as Trapped when I update, and I do wonder if it's to do with it being centred almost entirely around OCs (although having said that, Trapped is very OC-heavy too :s ). Anyway, yes the dynamics of the group will change as they get older; these guys are going to go through a heck of a lot before very long! I feel bad, I love them as kids, they're so innocent - with the exception of Leofwyne, who has already has some awful experiences. Ah well, no story without conflict ;-) thank you very much for your review.

Title: Hold My Hand Reviewer: xFanarix Signed
Oooh, lovely! I have been hoping for another chapter of this story. I am really enjoying the development of these three.

There was the Haddan of the Now, holding his friend and chattering and trying to keep his spirits up, and there was the Haddan of the Then, crouching in a corner and sniffling while the two women desperately tried to keep his father’s raging fever down.

This is excellent, it is a wonderful description of what Haddan is feeling, that strange dislocation of having been in that situation once before.

Thank-you so much for posting another chapter of this intriguing story.

Author's Response: And thank you for your consistently lovely reviews; I was being attacked by this scene last night, it wouldn't leave me alone! I'm really glad you enjoyed it :-)

I really like this, the chapter with dog made me cry. You're really good at bringing about empathy for characters. Good job, keep writing!

Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you like it :-) I plan to update this and Trapped within the next few days. In other business - I left you a message on LJ and I've sent you several emails but I'm not sure they're getting through; basically, my hotmail account has died. I commented on your last LJ post, leaving you an address that should work. Hope to hear from you soon!

This is turning into such a great piece of fiction. I loved that chapter, it was delicately and movingly handled.
Well done!

Author's Response: :-D I'm glad you liked it! As you know, "Trapped" doesn't seem to want to be written at the moment, and when I turned back to this story it felt like it was writing itself, which was a great feeling. Thanks for your review!

Title: Kick in the Head Reviewer: xFanarix Signed
Wonderfully written chapter. You know I don't read stories based around Men - well maybe your don't, but I so rarely do it's rare as hens teeth. Your characters are very interesting, though, and their growth and thoughts.

Being a dog lover, I cried :(

Please keep going :)

Author's Response: Aww! I must admit, I felt very bad killing Dog; I'm a dog lover too, and defending Leo seemed like the kind of thing a loyal dog would do. Equally, though, with his father in that mood, the consequences of Dog biting couldn't have been any different, I don't think. I so rarely do it's rare as hens teeth. XD I'm honoured that you think my story's worth reading, then! Now the Christmas chaos is over I'll probably be back to posting more often again. As ever, I appreciate the review - thank you for sharing your thoughts! Take care.

Title: Childhood Reviewer: xFanarix Signed
Ah, so they're growing up. :) I must admit Filwyn kicking Leofwyne in the goolies made me choke. XD .

I like the fact they're older now, I don't read stories centered around children or teenagers, unless it's a part of the story before they grow up, but I have a habit of ' beginning from the beginning ' too, so I think you're correct in starting the story in their childhood and it's very nicely done.

You do use a lot of dialogue -- the first part of this chapter contained a great deal, the last part more description and then dialogue. I can't say it bothers me. Dialogue is necessary. I prefer * thoughts * and description, but at times we have to have speech and when it's between three people or more, you either have to write it third person omniscient or third person present. I've done both, although I prefer it when it's third person present, to speak from their perspective and add more * thoughts * , not simply a back-forth of speech. It's written both ways and neither is right or wrong, so it's really what you feel you prefer, I think.

Author's Response: OK, thank you for your help!! Glad you're still liking it; they won't be kids for much longer, it's getting hard to write :p thank you for reviewing, take care

Title: Smile Reviewer: xFanarix Signed
This is a delightful chapter, and sounds very true to life, Haddan's reaction to the baby, and then having him hold her was a great touch :)

Author's Response: Thanks, so happy you liked it - like I just said to Anwyn, Haddan's behaviour is simliar to mine and my brother's when we got an unexpected little sister after wishing for a brother.

Title: Smile Reviewer: Anwyn Signed
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I really like this story and I think the idea of using the prompt's to create a story around is abseloutely brilliant as every chapter you add a little more and I think the depth that you give to your character's is just wonderful and reminds me why I love reading about OC's so much, well, well written ones at least which it is definately established yours are. Poor little Haddan, I understand his disappointment well as it took me years to get over the fact that I had a younger brother and not the younger sister I had wanted and that he was it, no more siblings but the last little part was very sweet and worked with the prompt very nicely,

Author's Response: Thank you Anywyn! It's funny you should say that, actually; this chapter was partly inspired by mine and my older brother's attitudes to our new baby sister when we were 5 and 6 respectively. We used to be constantly asking our parents "When will the baby go home?" and didn't quite realise that it wasn't that simple! Glad you enjoyed it, anyway; thanks for the review.

Title: Introduction Reviewer: xFanarix Signed
I love your writing style, and even the first few sentences clearly evokes an ' Anglo-Saxon ' type setting. The birthing was gritty, the death grim, but such things happened, and I don't mind grit, muck, blood and sweat at all, if it is within context.

This is a great start, and a mature voice, which is always a pleasure; a vivid and very realistic painting of the prologue. :)

Oh, and although OC's are apparently the least popular characters for people to read, that has never occurred to me. I have my Tolkien favorites to write of, mostly the Finwion's d;-) but as you know the main protagonist in my AU is an OC. A poor writer can butcher a wonderful canon character and a good writer can create a rich, deep and fascinating original one. Some of my favorite authors have developed OC's and OFC's with a real storyteller's skill, so please keep going :)

Author's Response: Thank you for the encouragement! Writing the brithing was a bit of a challenge, having never gone through it myself, so I'm glad you thought I hit the right notes. As always, I really appreciate your opinion!

Yay! A response to my challenge! 67% is definately one of the stranger prompts. Unfortunately, I didn't come up with the list. Anyway, this seems to be a very promising start. I look foreward to more.

Title: Introduction Reviewer: Anwyn Signed
It is true that some do not seem to apprechiate OC's but that is a personal choice. Personally I like OC's, I write using an OFC and I do not really care if a character is OC or canon as even a canon character can be written of in a very very poorly, well written, abseloutely any character can be intresting. I really like your style of your writing as I have read some of your other work and I feel you have a nice flow on the words and a mature voice when it comes to your writing and it lends a very nice sense of authenticity to your work. No, It was certainly not a "Goodness me!" kind of moment, lol, just one of those times that just cries for a solid curse I would think. I am intrigued about this challenge, does each 'Prompt' have to be covered in one ongoing story or can each prompt be a story into itself, I think it is quite good you are going to write an entire story around it as that is quite a challenge but I am curious and I don't quite understand.

Author's Response: The challenge summary doesn't actually say whether it should be one story or lots of disconnected ones, so I just assumed it didn't matter; this is just the approach that appealed to me. You're absolutely right to say it's quite a challenge, though, I'm a little worried about some of the prompts! They don't have to be taken in order either; Chaotic Demon says to just have fun, and I'm taking her at her word. Thanks for all your lovely comments about my work - nice to know it's appreciated!

Title: Introduction Reviewer: Anwyn Signed
I like this, I felt it was quite realistically written of the birth though poor Rheda, unfortunately such complications are not uncommon but only our knowledge of how to best deal with them has changed. I like stories written around OC's and so I will follow this one as this first chapter has already drawn me in and I look forward to seeing more of this story, though the fact it is written as a challenge really makes this intriguing. Also, I learned a Rohirrim curse word, It is good things all around! LOL! Keep up the great work.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it...I put the warning about the OC's in the story notes because apparently a lot of people prefer to read stories mostly about canon characters, so I thought it was only fair to let people know what I was doing. About the cursing, not sure what the Professor would have to say about that, but I didn't think "Oh my godness!"-type exclamations would have been appropriate in that situation!! Thank you for your review, please keep me updated on your thoughts as the story progresses.
