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 ;)
Author's Response: :D Rescue him he shall!
Ready for more excitement now!
Author's Response: Haha! I have to agree with you, I think Lindir will forgive him too ;) And I'm sure Elrohir hopes you will forgive him! I'll post soon as I remember, I'm having one of those weeks where the workload just doesn't seem to shift!
I hope he will! (And, more important, I'm sure that Lindir hopes he will!
Author's Response: Lindir does indeed hope he will! xD
Author's Response: xD You really knock Elrohir down a lot! He might just surprise you!
But of course poor Lindir is next, and I don't think that anyone will be as gentle with him as they were with the Prince!
Author's Response: :D Yep, Legolas and Elladan will become a lot closer over the course of the story :). And believe me, you're very right to feel sorry for Lindir *Evil smirk*
If you put double breaks in like this:
"That I do not know," the Lord replied. "Are you sure depression and headaches were the only symptoms your father complained of?"
"I think so," Legolas replied hesitantly. "Although...it seemed rather sudden. One day he was fine and the next..."
And when you begin a new paragraph, I would be able to read it without getting dizzy :(
Author's Response: Sorry hun, I've got no idea how to do that, I'm the world's worst formatter. Um...I could always email you the fic instead?
Author's Response: Mwhaha! My evil plan to have readers begging for more worked! *Does the evil dance*. You are right, actually, Lindir is going to suffer big time next chapter. Especially when Elrohir joins in the torture ;) Thanks for reviewing! *Gives cyber xmas cookie!*
Author's Response: I wish I had some clever answer to why the twins are so different, but there isn't really, I just wanted the two of them to have two distinctive personalities. :) I'm not saying anything about Lindir's Master, or who he eventually ends up with :P All I have to say is you haven't seen all the sides to Elrohir yet. Thanks for reviewing :)
*is anxious for poor Lindir*
Author's Response: You shall indeed receive the full backstory in a later chapter! (I should warn you now, to be blunt, I am VERY cruel to Lindir!) Thanks for your review!
