Author's Response: I'm still writing, hope you enjoy the next installment. Thanks for the review!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
You are an excellent writter! Keep up the excellent work!
Author's Response: Thank you! I felt terrible for Pelincrist too. You know young males, they have a tendency to think they are invincible. Must have been very hard for him to discover there were fates worse than death.
Glad you like my story. Thanks for the feedback!
Author's Response: Thank you. The babies will be born in Eryn Lasgalen. Elaura and Legolas will go with the others to escort Theoden's body back to Rohan and they will go with Gimli to see the Glittering Caves. The three of them will part from the rest of the company at Fangorn Forest and find their own way back to Thranduil's palace. That's the plan anyway. I never really know for sure. Glad you are enjoying the story, thanks for the review!
i just got bck from london, the stage show was amazing, go to www.lotr.com to see some of the clips if you like but interestingly legolas has dark hair in the show so i guess they took the other view. thanks for writing update again soon
Author's Response: I'm so jealous! I can't see how you could force the whole story into one play, but I'd love to see how they did it. I'll check out that site. Thanks for the review, hope you like the next chapter.
You're writting these really fast! Don't wear yourself out, ok? ^-^
Author's Response: I'm glad they didn't mind it too much. Hobbits aren't children, of course, but they have a childlike quality that is hard to ignore.
I'll do my best not to burn out, but the darn thing hardly lets me sleep!
Thanks for the feedback! Hope you enjoy the next chapter.
well written as usual and love the images you create with your words i also love elaura more as time goes by, her attitude "tough crowd" i love it. thanks for writing and keep up the good work
Author's Response: No one was more shocked than I, believe me. I had no idea until the words actually showed up on the page.
Thanks for the support and for the review. I'm taking a chance and posting the next chapter without proofing . . . I'll probably have to fix it, but I need to get some sleep. PT test in the morning. Take care!
Author's Response: She did get a little soft after her accident, but she's worrking on it. The next two chapters promise to be exciting. Hope you like them.
Thanks for the review.
Honestly, I have not read a story as good as this in a while and I really appreciate the hard work you put in it. Keep it up, I can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: Hard work or desperation? I'm not sure which, I only know if I didn't write it, my head would explode.
Someone said recently the humor had dropped off a bit, I'm glad it's back.
Thanks for the review, enjoy the next chapter.
Author's Response: Everybody LOVES Thranduil all of a sudden! I'm glad, he got a raw deal. Legolas did indeed drop her and honestly, she deserved it. I think she would have carried the deception further if Taenion hadn't stepped in.
Thanks for the feedback! The next chapter is awaiting your perusal.
also i want to look after thranduil, he is wonderful in this. thanks for writing and i cannot wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: My ideas come from the voices in my head and they always surprise me. Glad you are still enjoying it. You can look after Thranduil all you want, I've got a great pic of him and Legolas.
Thanks for the review, hope you like the next chapter.
by the way i hope you had a nice bd beause i forgot to put that in my last review.
one last thing, you had me laughing all day at the thought of a hundred caffinated dwarves running about, pity we dont have a few of those at work things would get done alot faster though gimli doesnt seem fond of horses so i dont know
anyway thanks for writing and i eagerly await the next update
Author's Response: Gimli would just need a horse that's a little shorter so he wouldn't have to ask for help getting into the saddle.
I did have a nice birthday. Just sat at home and wrote; exactly what I wanted to do.
I'm glad you're enjoying the story. Early on one of the most common suggestions I got was to add more detail and set the scenes better. I listened. Thanks for mentioning the "done concept" thing. I know some of my major plot themes have been done over and over, but I like to think nothing can truly be original except the way you present it. It really frees your mind when you aren't always trying NOT to do something or other (another thing my reviewers helped me learn).
Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: Thank you! I was hoping I wasn't getting into too much technical stuff. It's good you can draw a mental picture. Someday I want to get an artist to read my stories and see if they see what I have in my mind.
Thanks for the review, I'm already about a thousand words into the next chapter!
Author's Response: It's a little hard to respond to a review like this one. I'll assume you enjoyed the chapter? They are busy bees aren't they?
Thanks for the review; I hope you like the next chapter.
Author's Response: Ah, that was my mother's idea. I resisted at first, but Thranduil agreed and I had to do it. Thanks for the feedback!
Author's Response: Well hello! It's nice to hear from you. Thank you for the compliment and the review. The next cha[ter is coming along a little slowly, but it is coming.
