the dead orcs were on sale here too lol,
i loved darth wiget he kicks crow butt. thanks for writing update again soon
Author's Response: Dead orcs are always on sale after Halloween. On the other hand, it's still June in the story. Hope you like the next chapter! Thanks for the review!
Another masterpiece! YAY! XD
Did you get the message I sent you on myspace? It said that I was planning a trip to South Korea in December, but I changed it to January. The plane that I'm taking will get me to Japan and from there I'll be taking another form of transportantion (I havent decided yet) to Korea.
Author's Response: I did. Did you not get my answer? Korea is a lovely country. Most likely, you'll end up taking another flight to Korea. The two countries aren't quite as close as they appear. There may be a ferry, but I don't know how long a trip it is. It took us over 24 hours to cross the English Channel in a ferry from Cherbourg to Rosslare, just to give you an idea. If you can spare the time, it was quite an adventure. From the southern coastal towns, you would need to take a train. I recommend getting to a hub where the ATX is available. It is a nice, fast train and for about 30,000 won (approx $30) you can upgrade to first class and that is a wonderful experience for a weary traveller. I really don't suggest driving and taxis can get expensive. The roads are narrow and many of them are not named or labeled until you get on the highway.
rnYou will like Korea, but as I said in my email, winter is very cold, especially up north in Seoul and beyond. You can expect to see some snow if you do go north.
rnThanks for the review! I hope you like the next one!
another great chapter, lovely interactions between the characters espicially thranduil and the others. it was sweet with pelincrist taking his adar's pillow when he was out on patrol, i admit i used to do the same when my dad was away working for a year, it made it more real and made me abit teary aww.
washing in a mumaks foot interesting, i dont know if i would or not eww
thanks for writing and keep up the brilliant work
Author's Response: Thank you. Apparently elephant feet are still used as buckets in countries where the locals are permitted to use elephant products, as when the herds are culled or the animal dies naturally. It is something my mother told me she saw on Animal Planet. It makes sense, but it would take some convincing, even for me. Luckily, the Valar are very convincing.
rnThanks for the review!
I almost fainted when I noticed that you had put up 3 at the same time! lol!
Aw! So much love! I almost cried! I love Widget! He's adorable! XD
I can't wait to read the next chapter! ^-^
Author's Response: Ah, but wait, there's more. I'm done with Chapter 71, I jest have to proofread it and post. I love Widget, too!
rnThanks for the review! I probably missed you all more than you missed me.
got home from college and another chapter of brilliance waiting for me, just the cure for spending the last two hours on a farm in the freezing cold rounding up sheep. i love widget more and more in every chapter, i know a bird just like him very friendly and cute, i also know a parrot that asks you if you want a grape but thats just strange lol. thanks for writing and i hope you are enjoying writing this as much as i am reading it which is alot !
Author's Response: *blush* Widget is a lot of fun, just the comic relief they need. You on the other hand, need a llama! Alpacas are good sheep herders. I understand the parrot, he's been offered grapes so much he probably thinks that's how you say 'hello'! Thanks for the compliment and the review!
another chapter wow just what i needed. my fave story to read in my worst lesson, sneaky change of the background colour and hopefully my tutor won't notice.
i loved the way you discribed shelob, so full of hate and rage very scary and so detailed you hardly leave a thing out.
the cave and gimli also wonderful nice to see gimli enjoying his gems so much.
must go my tutor may notice i will read next chapter at home. ick back to business lesson
thanks for writing and much love keep up the brilliant work
Author's Response: Naughty, naughty! I can only imagine what Erestor's lessons with Elladan and Elrohir would have been like had they had computers and internet!
rnI have to give credit for that bit of detail to my step-dad. He's about the only person on the planet who has never read Tolkien, so when I sent him the draft, he said he really wasn't getting a feel for her, especially not her size. I re-wrote it with more detail and got his seal of approval.
rnKeep up with your studies. College didn't give me much more than a piece of paper with a seal, but I got a wonderful understanding of people in general just from watching and listening. Glad you are still enjoying the story. Thanks for the review!
yey its back, this was a wonderful chapter and i have missed reading this so much. thanks for writing. hugs keep up the good work
Author's Response: Howdy! Thanks for waiting. I'm sorry it took so long, I had over a hundred pages to sort out, proof, and edit. I appreciate you staying with the story. I can't say what is more fun, writing it or reading the responses from you and aelfwine. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the review.
Exelent story! I've never red something like it! Will you look my stories, I'll be realy happy if you do
Author's Response: Thanks! I'll be sure to take a look.rn I'm on leave right now; I'm writing but not able to proof, so I won't post until I get back to Okinawa on November 1st.rnThanks for the review!
such a good chapter thanks you so much. every detail is thought of and explained really well. i am definatley addicted to your story, hope you continue for a very long time.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm enjoying writing it, too. As always, I'm learning a lot about the characters as we go along. I'm glad you enjoy the details, it makes for a longer story, but if you like it, who am I to argue. If I were to publish (which obviously I couldn't without permission from the Tolkien estate), I would probably have to break it down into smaller books, but since this is the internet, I'm happy with it the way things are.
rnThanks again for the review!
thanks so much another chapter or at least the continuation of the last one. thanks for writing even though you dont have much time.
Author's Response: Even when I don't have time they hound me until i make time . . . the characters, I mean. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
great chapter. i loved the bit with the other bombadil and also the idea of the wizards argueing, i would leave them there for a while to see if they kept at it lol. thanks for writing.
Author's Response: I wish Elaura had been able to stand by and hear what it was they were arguing about. Maybe Gandalf will fill her in sometime. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for reviewing!
great chapter, worth the wait. i love the decription of all the different wizards minds very interesting. i think the wizards robes are very cool, i want one if i could use it.
thanks for writing, very much appreciated.
ps greetings from scotland, thats where i currently am, so virtual haggis for all lol.
Author's Response: Those robes get better and better, too. Hope you're having a good time in Scotland. I've always wanted to visit. Take care and thank you for taking the time to review even when you're out and about!
A very touching chapter. I can't wait to read the next part, but please don't push yourself. Stress is a mean little booger and nobody does well under it (like the main character).
Author's Response: No kidding. I don't know what day it is half the time. Hope you enjoy the next two.
rnThanks for taking the time to review, I'll try to be better about responding in the future.
aww such a lovely chapter. well written and really enjoyable. thanks for writing update soon
Author's Response: Goodness I've really gotten behind in my responses. I'm so sorry. I finally got another two chapters up. I'm glad you enjoyed this one.rnThanks for the review!
This chapter was very entertaining and I really liked the end with the Entwife. I love your work! XD
Until next time. ~D.D.~
Thanks! I enjoyed writing it. This time of year is a bit harrowing, but I'm still writing. Hope you like the next one!
Thanks for the review!
oh wow this was a awesome chapter, i would love to be part of something like that. and wandlimb at the end very nice.
thanks for writing even though you said you have been busy with work it is most deffinatly appreciated and enjoyed.
Thank you, thank you. I'm just about ready to post the next chapter.
Thanks for the feedback!
really good chapter, better and better as you go along. i thought thranduil and legolas would get singed too there for a moment lol. thnaks for writing keep up the amazing work and update soon
Author's Response: I think CHapter 62 is ready. I may post it before proofreading, just to get it out there, but you'll have to forgive the mistakes. I have to go to work soon and I don't want to put it off.
Glad you liked 61, I really appreciate the fact you are still reading and reviewing!
a wonderful chapter, i loved seeing it from legolas's point of view. okinawa sounds interesting, i'd love to go there sometime.
i actually feel sorry for melkor at this point the teletubbies always freaked me out for some reason. well thanks for writing i have to go now to a scarecrow festival, wonderful english madness lol
hope you update again soon
Author's Response: It is. Teletubbies are a guilty little secret of mine; that and Bear in the Big Blue House. I guess they are designed to be sweet and soothing and it works on me.
Okinawa is beautiful and very interesting. I know you said you had a good time at the festival, I would have loved to see the Jack Sparrow one, myself. Johnny Depp is another of my guilty pleasures.
Sorry I haven't updated in a while; it's been a crazy week here. I'm sure it'll calm down soon. It had better, because work is burning me out. Thanks for the review!
wonderful chapter, love the interactions between all the characters and legolas and thranduil teasing elaura. thanks for writing and update again soon, by the way will elaura get to beat saruman again in the next chapter?.
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. It was more fun to write than the next one. SHe doesn't meet Saruman again yet, but she does get to talk to an old 'friend'. Hope you like it.
Thanks for the feedback!
