I like it that you made the language barrier real. I'm still feeling a little challenged by sorting out all of the friends.
Author's Response: Yeah, I'm going to have to work on that. At first I was only going to have three friends, then five then I thought I'd just pick nine. it seemed tolkieny enough. Nine ring wraiths nine fellowship members, that sort of thing. Thanks for the review
Hey GWE, I dunno if you read the beta topic again, but If you want, I'll beta this for you, also would you like to beta Far future? (I ask since I only just started it, and it would be nice to have a beta early on,) e-mail me if you want
Author's Response: sure!! I'd love too!!
Whoahoho, that chapter was great! I have no idea what you were talking about, it's just as good as ever, sorry to hear you're stressed
Author's Response: Aww, thanx for the review!! And I have great news, IM NO LONGER STRESSED!! I have a holiday now, so I'll update soon. Think of it as my christmas poresent to all, another update, happy holidays!! =)
Heehee, what an interesting way to meet! Love the originality. This was very funny, I was giggling the whole time! Poor Elves, they must be so confused.
I am very glad you've observed the language barrier. Most people writing these sorts of stories ignore the fact that English isn't spoken in Middle-Earth, so it's a rare thing to find a story where the newcomers can't speak the language. It makes the story just that much better! Plus it leaves lots of opportunities for humour.
This story just keeps getting better! Please update really soon, I can't wait to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: Yeah, ask a newbie what the common speech is and they'll tell you english. Isn't it westron? See, even I'm a little green as far as language goes. *sheepish grin* Thanx for the review, your always so supportive! Thank you :)
Ooh, sorry I didn't review sooner! This chapter was fantastic. You just love leaving cliffies, don't you? This is a fairly common plotline, but yours is one of the first takes on it I've been able to enjoy. This is a fantastic story! Will you update soon if I whine and beg enough? How bout my puppy-dog eyes, they usually work...
Author's Response: Thanx!! Yeah it is a common plot line, but I got the idea and just couldn't let it go! Yes I love cliffies :) it builds suspense! thanx for the review!
