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!
Wonderful! Simply wonderful.
" “Arwen must be a pistol when she’s mad,”"-Ha!
Please-PLEASE! Keep up-dateing!
Author's Response: I sure hope Aragorn has a sit down with Legolas. Thanks so much for the review and the encouragement.
I've already started the next chapter, but it sure is hard to apologize!
Author's Response: Oh! New reader! Welcome!
I've always thought of Legolas as a little na√É∆í√ā¬Įve when it comes to dealing with women. Of course Elaura's already feeling terribly guilty about yelling at them.
Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you liked it. There's a reason she enjoys the company of the dwarves and it's her personality. I do feel terribly sorry for Legolas, though. I'll get to work on the next chapter as soon as I can.
Author's Response: I kinda felt like I forced that. It's one of my favorites, I had to get it in somehow. I can't seem to pin Aragorn down. He's always been a mystery to me.
I missed the glossary. What does "Tenna' ento lye omenta" mean?
Author's Response: Whoops. I knew I forgot something. It means "Until next we meet." I'm using some elvish that isn't original Tolkien. I'm getting it from several websites.
A natural plateau. The calm before the storm, I guess. It just felt natural. Thanks for reading!
Author's Response: Thanks! Don't you wish there were this kind of correspondence to read from Tolkien when he was writing? I get a lot out of these reviews and have integrated a lot of ideas from here into the story.
Author's Response: I haven't started Chapter 19 yet. I know where I'm going with it, but I'm not sure how to write it. Glad you're having a good time!
Author's Response: Thanks. Despite my personla feelings for Legolas, Gimli and Bilbo have always been my favorite characters. I can find myself in them.
Author's Response: He's very down to earth. He reminds me of my grandmother, she hated being treated like a child.
Author's Response: Great! I'm working on Chapter 18 now.
Author's Response: A special thank you to a new reader! I love the feedback. Enjoy!
