Author's Response: Haha, just because a body was found... ;) Arion is much too little, more details about Hithmenel's plans for him will be coming up :)
I am very glad you didn't give this up, Gemini. I had been wondering where you were!
Author's Response: It's becoming more and more intricate every time I sit down to write xD
Ah, well, what happened was I got a bit stuck somewhere near the end of the last chapter and sort've gave up for a bit, then I just fell out of the habit of writing. Looked at the fic today and realised I was one scene from finishing it, so I decided to complete it. Then I looked back at it again and went "Why did I give this up?!" xD Thanks for reviewing!
Thank you, and I am looking forward to the next chapter.
Author's Response: :D Really glad you like the story, Mindirith. I quite enjoyed the irony of sweet, innocent Arion being trained to be an assassin. It ties in with something that appears in either the next chapter or the next (This is why there's been such a long gap between the last chapter and this one, I've run out of pre-written chapters so now I have a rough idea where I'm going, but I don't know what goes in what chapter yet). Lindir and Elrohir are going to get even closer ^_^ I figure I should really give poor Lindir a break. Next chapter will most likely contain some form of "action" ;) Thanks again!
Author's Response: I agree, poor Taurendil, I am making him suffer (But he does deserve it!) I will post soonish, as I said in my authors note, I'm a bit stuck on Chapter 20 and I'd rather have that mostly written before I post the next chapter. Thank you for reviewing!
Author's Response: I love the way he's the injured party out of the three and yet he manages to be the only one out of the lot to be out of bed XD He's so sneaky! I agree, that's how a father should behave! And general male relatives...(Hinting at a plotpoint coming up...)
Author's Response: Yep, just trying to build up the picture :)
And Arion has gone under the bed to find your missing notebook, lol!
Author's Response: xD I'm glad you really like the whole Elrohir x Lindir thing I have going on and Lindir is pleased you're firmly in his camp!
I found the notebook! Took me awhile xD I typed everything out of it, but I'm still only one and a bit chapters ahead of this one now. I need to hit another writing streak, I think! I had to slow down when I got to Thranduil's story, because I actually found it quite challenging to write practically a whole adult life in a few pages!
Thanks for your continued support!
Author's Response: Awesome! Hope you enjoy!
Author's Response: I'm really glad you liked it! I will post again soon :) P.S. Re: The master/slave thing: I'm planning on introducing another similar coupling, a BDSM mutual agreement sort've thing. I don't know if that would be difficult for you?
Let's see if Elrohir will "allow" that to happen, though!
Author's Response: Indeed, we will have to see!
Author's Response: Not so much a surprise, but the dynamic of Lindir and Elrohir's relationship is definitely going to change! Thanks for reviewing! Not sure when I'll update, because the next chapter is written in a notebook, which I've lost. Oops!
Now, is it a good or bad thing Elrond interrupted, I wonder?
Author's Response: Haha, I agree, Thranduil and Legolas need to have a LONG heart to heart. And...Well, at least Elrond interupting will mean that Elrohir and Legolas will not kill each other...Elrond may clonk a few heads together though!
May be a bit of a delay on the next chapter, I wrote it in a notebook and sort've lost the notebook!
Arion is such a sweetheart.
Ha! Good for you, Legolas. I am not sure how this will work out, but it seems Elrohir has to see Lindir as more than a toy.
Good job, Gemini!
Author's Response: Lindir and Elrohir's relationship is actually quite fun to write as there are lots of levels to it. Lindir is determined to be the best servant possible, but he does dream about being Elrohir's lover. Elrohir, until recently, only thought of Lindir as a slave (and an occasional bed partner), but things are slowly changing.
Arion is indeed a sweetheart and he's also quite fun to write about. He's very cute and affectionate!
Oh, Legolas and Elrohir will be locking horns for a while! And Elrohir knows about Legolas and Elladan's secret, doesn't he? *Whistles innocently*
Thanks for reviewing!
Author's Response: It may take a while yet for Elrohir to truly come around, but he will ;) Thanks for reviewing!
Absolutely! I especially loved Arion saying that he was loved, and biting Hithmenel to escape from his clutches. Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: :) That's one of my favourite bits too! And yay! Hithmenel is dead now! (Although his evil legacy lives on mwhaha)
He is a right sh**te, that one! >:( what a thing to say to a child. I am glad Arion retorted as he did.
What a lot of action in this chapter. :)
Author's Response: I agree! Still, he's dead now, even if his evil legacy will continue for some time! The next chapter is slightly shorter and focuses mainly on Elrohir and Lindir, but it's not going to be the happiest reunion ever!
Author's Response: And horses! Never forget the horses! xD Seriously though, I wonder how long Elrohir can stay nice...
Author's Response: xD It's a good guess, but not quite right! And thanks for the feedback on the peppermint!
Author's Response: Indeed, there seems to be a mystery building on a mystery! (Or something like that xD). And I believe that Elrohir has shown his "nice" side to you at last! xD
Author's Response: You shall find out in due course (Meaning I haven't actually written that far yet, but I do have plans. That I keep forgetting and having to remember again - the downside of a complicated plotline).
You are doing really well with some difficult issues raised in this story. Sorry you are dealing with bad news. Take care of yourself.
Author's Response: I am so glad it's easier to read, thanks for your constant help, advice, support etc. with pretty much everything through the few years we've known each other. :) You take care too!
Author's Response: Thanks Ziggy! :)
It would be easier to read if you left a line between each person speaking or between each paragraph- but that is olny formatting.
Author's Response: Hiya Ziggy, Spiced Wine has said the same thing and we spent about an hour trying to format the text, but it seemed to appear one way on my screen (i.e. properly formatted) and a different way on her screen (i.e. not properly formatted) which became VERY confusing indeed.Formatting is honestly my worst skill when it comes to FF writing and I've just had some bad family news, so I'm really not sure when I'm going to try and sort it out again. Thanks for reviewing.
Author's Response: :D Trust me, Fornlos get his dues! And of course Elrohir has a heart! He wouldn't be able to live if he didn't ;)
