Author's Response: Thank you! Stay with me, I have to take a short break (no more than a day or so). Army stuff, you know. Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. She deserved a lot more.
That's a good question. As soon as I find out who that lurker is, I'll let you know.
Thanks for the review, keep reading!
This being the elf who goes and kisses a woman on their first outing. *SO CUTE* XD
Nooo! Not another cliff-hanger! Elaura, you're SO cruel! But I love you for it! Hehe! I expect something WONDERFUL in chapter 25 as compensation -- *is kidding, of course*
*hugs* Another wonderful chapter!
By the way, does Legolas know Elaura smokes yet?
Author's Response: I hope you don't mind, I used 'This being the elf who goes and kisses a woman on their first outing.' in the next chapter as well as a short conversation about Elaura's smoking habit.
I really appreciate the feedback. You've given me a lot of great ideas! Don't worry, Erestor gets his explanation.
I notice that you've increased the amount of speech as opposed to non-speech. I applaud the fact that I'm not confused by who's speaking... hope you don't forego too much more descriptive detail, though. I enjoy snippets of detail and I think you do it well -- how the characters are standing, sitting, how the light plays, what's the temperature... little things.
Author's Response: You should hear me and my mom talk about it. My real name is Laura. It gets a little confusing!
Thank you so much for your feedback. I tried to include more detail in the next chapter, but it has made it much longer. I hope you don't mind. ;-)
Author's Response: Hey! I missed you! Glad you're back. Did you enjoy your weekend?
Thankd for the review!
I'd just love to see how she explains neorodic! Loving how it's coming, please keep updateing!
Author's Response: Hey, if the worst punishment for an elf is imprisonment, the worst punishment for a dwarf has got to be losing his or her beard.
She can't get out of the explanations now! Erestor has her cornered.
Thanks for the review! Kepp reading!
Keep updateing please!
Author's Response: Criminology is a hobby of mine.
Yes, a great deal of this does come from personal experience, but no, I'm not missing a hand. Incidentally, I've never had my nose broken, either, but I did have sinus surgery once and the bandages really WERE three feet long in each nostril.
Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'll update as soon as it comes to me.
I also liked the way the pain relief affected Elaura, it kinda reminded me of the pethadine injection I once had! I look forward to reading more! ! This really is a great story!
Author's Response: Gimli will be ok. He HAS to be. Not just because he's so important to the story, but because I like him!
Pain medication is fun. It's nice that elven anesthetic doesn't make people sick the way the real stuff does.
Thanks for reading!
Author's Response: I love Karma. Lets just say the person in the shadows is not the perp, but he does have an agenda of his own. ;-) I'll try to get the next chapter up today.
Thanks for reading and reviewing.
Author's Response: I'm not looking forward to the explanation, myself. But the culprit will be caught soon. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
"...delirious from the pain.." my foot!
THe perfect excuse.
Author's Response: Hey, Aragorn may be taken, but he's still cute as hell! Besides, all the men are so damn shy! Thanks for the review!
I know I sould like a shallow, self-ish person in not giving you "constructive crtizism", but I really really REALLY! wnat you to up-date soon!
Author's Response: I'm working on it, I promise! Thank you for sticking with me and letting me know what you think! I don't really mind the praise! ;-)
Author's Response: Well, that's a bit of my own character. My family has always been good at dark humor and keeping things light when times are tough.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll try to get the next chapter up today.
Author's Response: I'll try to keep the momentum going. I loved the poem the moment I read it, I knew I had to get it in there somewhere.
I'm not sure where the venom came from or what is going to become of Elaura. One thing for sure is that she's going to have to learn how to use her left hand.
But I really liked this twist. XDXDXD It roused the fic right up!
I guess she won't be able to train for a bit after this -- pity.
Loved the ear blowing...
Am looking forward to the next chapter and finding out how venom got onto that axe.
Author's Response: Unfortunately I don't know yet how the venom got there. Who carries spider venom around? It's still a mystery to me.
Glad you're enjoying it! She's going to be left handed for a while, maybe even permanently.
Distracting Legolas was just too easy. I couldn't pass it up.
Thanks for the feedback, keep reading.
Author's Response: I agree. He's sensible and friendly. He doesn't take anything too seriously. Just the kind of person I'd like to be.
Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Author's Response: Already working on CH 22! Thank you!
Author's Response: NEW READER! YEA! Thanks for the feedback!
Author's Response: Every two days or so. The voices won't let me wait longer than that.
Can't tell the plot! Thanks for the review. Honestly, the reviews really keep me thinking!
Author's Response: I'm working on that. How does one define that word?
Thanks for the feedback, glad you liked her tantrum!
Lovely! Keep updateing, Please!
Author's Response: Shakespeares Sonnet #73
I put this little tag on it "ŧ" to mark it, but I guess it's hard to see. Sorry. I couldn't find an appropriate song from Tolkien's works so I went to the classics.
Thanks for reading and reviewing!
And I really like the way you place the English translation in brackets next to the elvish. It's considerably more helpful than the "bottom of the page glossary". Thanks for that.
Is much-loved Elaura-Mary-Sue going to take any of the Rivendell elves with her to Mirkwood? Or are you going to make do with OCs and Thranduil and Gulion? Or is she never going to reach Mirkwood?
Author's Response: Ah, now that would be telling. You are on the right track though.
I think the English translations in the brackets works well, too. Easier to write and proofread.
I had a sick feeling in my stomach until I got all the apologies out of the way, isn't that silly?
Then Legolas's confession. And then... the twist! Wow! And the "Its back to √Ö‚Äúmy Lady√ā¬Ě for you, your majesty!" *laughs* Totally wasn't expecting that she'd have to go to Mirkwood, but I can see it working out very well. *nodsnodsnods*
Adored the last line.
Author's Response: Hoped you'd like it. There's more Glorfindel in the next chapter, hold on to your knickers.
Yes, she did stretch them, I'm glad you picked that up.
Thanks for the review, keep reading!
Author's Response: Thanks! Love to hear from new people as well as repeat reviewers! I'm glad I got that right, of course I've had pleanty of experience with it!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that. I like Gandalf and I like the idea that he might have a real personality. Thanks for the feedback!
