This was kind of a filler chapter, but I thought it was well done, describing in detail the surroundings and people Orlando found himself in and around. Rural life is exactly as you show it to be, laid back most of the time but in some instances, change comes at a moment's notice. I especially liked that Orlando feels like he may have a kinship with these people who so readily "adopted" him and with the place he'd be spending a while in. Looking forward to more soon!

A very nice addition to your story. Again, your imagery is very quite descriptive, and it is easy to see the little village and its inhabitants in this chapter. I liked the way the young boys were on the one hand very curious about the newcomer, and on the other hand not very reverent to who was in their midst (funny they won't recognize his face without the blond wig!). Mostly they made fun of his start when he saw the geese...geese will have that effect on you! It is neat how you show the worldweariness of Orlando, how he is tired from the trip but still manages to feel at ease and even at home in his new surroundings for the next few weeks (or months?). I am staying tuned for chapter 5. Pam

Author's Response: The boys reaction is actually based on my own perception of the world when I was that age. I really wasn't introduced to pop culture until I hit junior highschool. They don't recognise Orlando because they don't think to, they have seen the movie once and they wouldn't think to make the connection, mostly because to them Legolas is an elf, and Orlando is human and thus they would never dream of thinking they were one and the same. It is really based on my own thinking at the time, I was rather niave wasn't I?

I liked this chapter very much. It seems you have intimate knowlege of the bush pilot's life and the bush country of northern Canada. I found myself absorbed by your descriptions and saw the rural beauty and ruggedness through Orlando's eyes. I was as impressed and fascinated as he was! I look forward to your next chapter...Bill sounds like he has a story or 2 to relate and I want to hear them!

Author's Response: My father is a geologist and he spent alot of time working in the bush he always tells me stories about being in the bush and the people he met and interacted with there especially the pilots. What I describe is Northern Ontario not Norhern Canada. In Ontario we call the the North, and the Territories are the far North. I live in Northern Ontario, although not as far north as I describe Tookborough as being. but I have travelled there.

What a delightful description of Orlando's arrival. I can almost imagine myself in his shoes, an unknown country, meeting an unknown person taking him in questionable vehicles to his destination. Even if Ian recommended the trip I'd be like him, wondering why I let myself be talked into such an adventure. But your way of introducing the reader to this part of Canada makes me want to see it, if not imagine it. Will look forward to your further descriptions of Orlando's arrival and future meetings of the village.

Hello! I liked the title of your fanfiction and decided to read the first chapter. I can say that I am very intrigued for the next installment. I like how you have woven a very believable situation for a recluse (due to as yet untold circumstances). I have some ideas about what has happened to Ela in the past but I am looking forward to how the story unfolds! Update soon!
