rotflmao, KImberlyJane. This was a great opening fic, i do admit mine sucked and i deleted it the other day. But this was great, you're really good at humor, a place not many are skilled in. Keep writing!
Author's Response: Thanks! I will!
Hahahehe, this is really fun! I love how you brought boromir into the fic. An i love how you keep most of the characters in their original personalities. Poor MEry, but in the movies, he really is pretty mch ignored. How sad, tear, tear.
Author's Response: Yes, I agree. Quite sad, especially since he's just so brave. I would easily like him better than Pippin, but then there's Pippin's Song, which I think is one of the very best scenes in the films. I felt kind of bad leaving him out of it, though. Maybe I'll write him a little ficlet. Or build him a shrine. We'll see.
Ahhh, that was great!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it. To tell the truth, I was a little worried you wouldn't after your nice response on the forums. I was like "Oh no! She's been reading fanfic forever, and I asked her to read mine!" lol Such a relief to read your review!
Congrats on this, KimberyJane! You made a hilarious, sarcastic fic with cliches that Mary Sues often have! :D
You must think of doing more cliche fics with other things. Just a suggestion.
Author's Response: Thanks, and I'm going to try. I was going to try to parody an angsty slash fic, but the only ones I have ever read are really quite good, so I'm going to scour fanfiction.net for really awful fics from any genre to get some ideas. We'll see what long hours of pajama-clad research at 3 AM turns up. Thanks for your review!
you are totally and completely CRAZY! It's kinda good to see someone parodying the all-too-common-tenth-walker-legomance-kissyface stories; they do get tiring. Oh, for your next story, you might try doing something about the next generation, like Eldarion, Elboron, and Aragorn's daughters.
Author's Response: Well, I just hope you liked it.
:P good job, hehehehee. *glomps you*
Author's Response: Thanks so much! It was a ton of fun to write, and got my brain back in shape for summer AP work (bleh). Six books and six assignments to go along with them for two months. Really only one month because I'll be at Ithaca ALL of July for a musical theater thing...so I'm going to try to post two more stories before I go...if I can ever decide on my next genre to parody.
HA! this was hilarious. I especially liked the part about sticking your head in the over and the other choices. roflmao *can't stop laughing* it's so absurd and yet so true, how can you not help but cackle? **We trust him. Wrongly** *cackles off into distance...*
Author's Response: Nieriel, Thank you for your review. However, these stories are not meant to be comedic. In my opinion, they provide characters with much depth that remain true to Tolkien. The Ă…â€śhumorĂ‚Âť setting under Ă…â€śgenreĂ‚Âť must have been a mistake. Clearly these are deeply dramatic stories with compelling undertones that show the desperation of the times. Excuse me while I write a slash fic to better illustrate my point. Much Love, KimberlyJane P.S.- Thank you for the nice review. I think I want one more chapter for this story, parody one more genre, and then maybe try to write a real fic. By the way, I just started "Stolen Desert Gold" and am really enjoying it, even if it lacks the unquestionable depth and intensity that is present in my works of dramatic genius.
