Okay, now that I've gotten that out of my system, I really like Galadriel!
"Because I SAY SO!!!!!!!!!!!"
You're story creates an interesting view of Gimli's reception.
Of Course, I'm probably biased! ;-)
I've always wanted to know what happened when Legolas and Gimli sailed west . . . This is a good idea. Also, hooray for writing a story about Gimli!
I have to agree with Nieriel Raina that there are rather a lot of lines from the movies in an otherwise very original story.
Author's Response: Yeah, there probably are. This was one of the first fics I ever wrote, so it is definitely not the greatest.
As one who loves reviews as well, I feel obligated to leave oneĂ‚Â¦but I warn you, I am an official member of the canon police! *evil grin* So I feel it necessary to point out the inconsistencies with canonĂ‚Â¦it makes me feel better, dont take them personally or seriously! *grin*
Gimli & Legolas did not sail from the havensĂ‚Â¦Legolas built the ship and they sailed down the Anduin from Ithilien.
OkĂ‚Â¦that saidĂ‚Â¦this was hysterical. Great parody of Galadriel! Ă…â€śFor the Valar, though they would never admit it, were rather afraid of Galadriel.Ă‚Âť THATS GREAT!
This is pretty good writing for a young author. Keep up the efforts!

Author's Response: Thanks!
I'm kinda canon obsessive too, about other people's stories, at least. Not so much about my own.
I didn't know that, all I knew was that they went, so thanks!
btw, I love the poem in your bio thingy. It's so me.
Sweet Elebreath! Try "I am a Queen! Great and terrible as the Sun! Trechous as the Sea! All love me and dispair!" (more quietly) "Including this Dwarf which is why he should live here, plus.."(yelling again) "I SAY SO! EH-HEE-HEE-HA!"
I know, it's from the movie, but it's FUNNY! : )
Author's Response: Thanks I'll do that.
HA, "I demand a recount" hilarious. Okay, I think possibly you should change the "we have decided that you are a dwarf." it's more taking Treebeard's line than originality. Also, Galadriel is a very influential Noldo, but I doubt that they would let a dwarf into Aman just because she wanted them to. lol. I liked reading it though, it was quite amusing. teehee ^_^
Author's Response: Who says I'm original? I'm a thief! Perhaps Galadriel's not that<\i> influential, but oh well, she had to be for the sake of the story. Thanks for reviewing! Faramiriel
