Hahahaha! Definitely a pleasing alternate ending! ~ Iri
Author's Response: This came about after some friends and I got into a discussion about the servant, aka . . . the wine wench. We all agreed that we would settle for being her and hoped to get thrown across a table by Hal. LOL, such a naughty elf he is. Thanks so much for these reviews. It's always such a gift to read them.
Beautiful. What a precious way to end the story. Of course Rumil would be first to marry. I like that as soon as they found each other they just knew it was right. And it's nice to see Orophin finally in a place where he feels the world is right to start his own family. As for Haldir - well some things never change right? ~ Iri
Author's Response: I've always thought of the brother's like this. Rumil is the sweetheart. Haldir is the sexy sly one and Oropphin is somewhere in between. And of all three, I never want Hal to change, lol.
Nope. I actually thought Aranel was going to end up with Orophin, Haldir with Gliriel and Rumil and Laerwen were going to find their happy ever after. Nice twists! ~ Iri
Author's Response: Hehehe, I hoped it wouldn't be too obvious.
I've got a strange feeling about this... there seems to be a lot of confusion going on... which of course adds to the suspense and mystery that you are the master of! ~ Iri
Author's Response: Oh, they are confused alright and with good reason.
Three brothers - same hearts, different heads! It's amazing how siblings can be so close and similar and yet so entirely different! I like this style of the story, the short transitions between each of the brothers as their stories unfold. Very clever structure! ~ Iri
Author's Response: Thank you. Being an only child, I use my husband and his 5 siblings as an example as how different they can be. But when it comes to family, they are always together.
Hello there! I have found another one of your tales to amuse me while I wait for you to update. This is a lovely concept, the masquerade! I can only imagine how events are going to turn out! Wonderful descriptions of the brothers. It's nice to see familiar names and traits, especially ones that I love! ~ Iri
Author's Response: Hi Iri. I haven't had a review on an old story in a long time. It's always a pleasure. I wrote this piece during a Haldir phase I think.
A very enjoyable, light story. I really do have fun reading your tales - I actually squealed in excitement when Laerwen took off her mask and proved my prediction correct. As always, look forward to seeing more of your writing. LC
Author's Response: So happy to hear you were entertained. Personally, out of all the ladies, I think Laerwen turned out to be my favorite, or maybe it's because of the elf she chose. Thanks again for reading. It's always nice to hear from you. ***Moe***
Ha! Well I guess it could go either way with Haldir. hehe I knew they'd end up with different ladies than they thought, but the pairings were a nice twist. Enjoyable tale, dear!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yes, I get the feeling Haldir is not picky. I'd be his wine wench any day. *hehe*
Thanks for the alternate ending. I liked the other also! This seems so Haldir. Another fine and entertaining story. Thank you for including the brothers. it's not often a wine wench gets to be in the company of all three.
By the way, you wrote the table scene all too well *snickers*
Author's Response: Thanks again for reading and responding. I love hearing from you. Glad you liked it. Maybe I'll be inspired by the bros again.
Awwwwwwww C'mon! A Cliffe ending? Damn you and your question endings. Just love the teasing. But then not everyone has like minds. Everyone is different, or to each his own. Love the triplet idea. Was the little buggers that strong to make three. LOL. I also love the teasing amongst the brothers. I have three sisters and remember what that was like. Strong in mind and body. But very much loved family when they are home together. Sigh! Great job with the story and of course, knowing you, Can't wait for the next adventure. Thank you.
Author's Response: Well, not actually a cliffer but an extended version, and it's free. lol Yes Rumil and Gliriel wasted no time and got it all done in one shot. Years of pent up need perhaps. It was fun writing for these Lorien brothers. I am an only child but my husband comes from a family of 6. It's always fun to watch them take jabs at each other. Thanks for reading.
I do like a happy ending, but am intrigued about your alternative...you write the brothers so well, they are alike but different enough to be convincing- although I should really say that the other way round actually. Looking forward ot more.
Author's Response: Glad you got to check this out. It was fun to write something with the three bros together. Sure would love to be sandwiched in the middle of all that muscle.
And I will see it to the end. Such stubborn pride among a couple of them. They know what the heart wants, but are afraid to say so. Afraid of rejection, maybe? Just like most people are. Oh well, let us see what will come of this. Once again great chapter, great story. My imagination is running rampant at the moment. LOL.
Author's Response: They will see the way clearly. One more chapter for this one and then a surprise extra ending after that. Let your mind run wild.
I'm lost. But enjoyed the chapter.
Author's Response: They're all a little lost right now, well except Haldir and Laerwen. *hehe*
I am too heated up and sweaty to care about correctly answering. LOL! That was a total somersault for the three brothers, and the ladies. Shake the package and guess, but it might not be what you thought. I am glad they found their partners, though for Orophin it might take some getting used to the change in partners. But it will happen. Great story! I am saving this in case I need a good "Sweat!" No need for a sauna or going to a gym. Delicious!
Author's Response: Surely you can hear me laughing. Don't towel off quite yet. More sweatty scenes on the way.
Your Haldir is a lech! I’m surprised he can perform his duties as a march warden he’s so preoccupied, but that’s what makes us love him!
Author's Response: Ah but that's what makes him behave this way. When he's doing his job at the border, there's no time to think about such things. All that pent up *ahem* is let loose when he's on reprieve in the city. Look out ladies, Haldir's on the loose.
Oooooooooo! Haldir sure does have a good head.....away from the shoulders that is. More further south, although on many occasions it has risen Northward and .... Okay getting off the subject. But then what is the subject. I don't know, I forgot what I wanted to say. My thoughts are still riveted to his head. LOL. Oh Geez! Keep it coming.
Author's Response: Keep it coming. That's what he said. *HEHE* More head and shoulders on its way.
Ah! Loved this chapter! I'm not sure if anyone is with who they intended, but if anyone is, them maybe Rumil is...however, during the dancing scene I decided that it could be:
However, I shall see in your next update, won't I? And I hope that is soon, because this really is addictive.
Author's Response: My lips are sealed. Or more like my fingers aren't typing. lol All will be revealed.
Good to see another lovely little fic :) Haldir is his usual libidinous self, and both Orophin and particularly Rumil are rather sweet. Anticipating the next chapter with delight!
Author's Response: Thanks LC. I do love a naughty Haldir. And the three of them together just melt my heart.
