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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
