Title: Poolside Problem, Talan Trouble Reviewer: Melusine Signed
Just catching up with this story. The sisters have been through a great deal just in the First Age alone. I don't doubt that both their tales would bring tears to their mother's eyes, but it does seem that Amorith has chosen the harder path. Haldir will have a lot to overcome if he hopes to win her heart. Looking forward to seeing how this all plays out.

Author's Response: Yes indeed, their tales would bring tears to any who do sympathize with their troubles they went through. As for Amorith, what can I say, except that she truly inherited the proud Noldor blood from her father--she refuses to go down without a fight. And of Haldir, if he really insists in winning her heart, he has gotten himself into a tough bargain. I hope to get the next chapter up as soon as I revise it. Thank you for reading it and hope the next installations won't disappoint you.

Great chapter. Such emotions wrapped around wonderful use of dialog. Haldir is written well. I like to see him like this. And Orophin and Rumil seem very mischievous. But I love how Amorith seems to come unraveled in the talan as she relives a moment in time. Can't wait to know more of their story.

Author's Response: This chapter took me a few days, as I stripped it down from its original content and had to think of how to rewrite it in such a manner that the new ideas merged with the old that I wanted to keep. Haldir has been one of my favorite characters when I read the books, and I have always wanted to write something involving him. As for Amorith, all that rage and pent up desire she has been holding onto for centuries showed her softer side, and I am trying to portray her as more than some tragic heroine. Everyone has a past, and there are always motivating factors. Glad you are enjoying this, and thanks as always for your thoughts.

Title: Beginnings Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
This is such a unique way to start a story. You have given us much of the sister's history in this way without having to actually visit the events. I cannot wait to hear from Amorith herself. I like her strength. I have always had a thing for a feminine warrior. I am ready to know more about her. I'm enjoying how you are slowly unfolding this story. Keep it up.

Author's Response: Thank you L8bleumr for your thoughts and kind words. I wanted to take a different approach and highlight the ancient magic and crafting abilities of the Noldor in a distinct manner, but not outrageously so either. I'm glad you found Forfirith's history told in an appropritate manner. The next chapters are mostly regarding Amorith, with a few diversions. Don't we all romanticize the idea of a feminine warrior? ;) Anyway, I am revising the next chapter and hope to have it posted soon.

Title: Into Thoughts Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Don't worry about reviews. They will come. Sometimes it takes a while, especially with a new story. I think you are off to a good start. I can tell this is just the build up or intro to the real tale. I must admit, I am a sucker for a story with Thranduil and was excited to see him mentioned in the summary. I am curious to see where this leads to. On with the show.

Author's Response: Thank you for your thoughts. It has been about five years since I have written any fanfic, and this story has been in my head all these years, nagging me to be finished. I really am in love with the story, so here I am, back at it! Although I have chapters 1-26 already typed (and on the website where this story is already posted, I think up to chapter 21 is present), I am revieweing each chapter as new ideas came to me. I am trying not to let my disappointment over lack of reviews get to me. So yes, as you said, on with the show!
