Tolkien didn't notice that there were more signal fires lit than the number of beacon towers. The last one, observed by Aragorn, seemed to be on Irensaga, so maybe there were a few more along the peaks of Rohan that didn't have names. Also, he didn't spot the canon error at the Grey Havens where Celeborn gets on the ship with Galadriel. I thought he would surely have jumped all over that one.
Author's Response: Sorry about that. I wrote the last bit late at night, so I was apt to forget a couple things. I'll fix it.
wow! this is really great! maybe you could get his views to my fanfic? i did take on the persona of one of his beloved elves after all! :)
Author's Response: Thanks. Yes, I probably will put your fanfic in my fanfic chapter.
I like that chapter too, Arwen and Gimli: good. Legolas king of Gondor: NO!!!! It should be Faramir. Aragorn dead: kinda good, kinda bad coz now there's no my fave fellowship member *sighs* This was a good chapter, what about ROTK, that could be fun to write - Li
Author's Response: thanks. I am updating today.
This was very interesting, i've wondered many a time what it'd be like to spend a couple of days with Tolkien, he's an amazing person (hear that JK Rowling?!) Sorry, not a fan of HP anymore, wasted six years on it but i must admit, it helps the way i think about things dramatically. I might actually add this to me faves, good one - Li
Author's Response: Thanks, I agree with you on HP. wow..faves. I feel honored!
As I said previously, this story is really good. The only thing I would really change would be the way the dialouge is set up. If the dialouge keeps alternating evenly, you don't have to add "he says" or "I responded" every time. This helps make the piece a little bit smoother. Other than this, the story is very well written. You should definately continue with this series/story it's funny and interesting.
Author's Response: thanks, love your story too. I get what you mean about the dialogue...I've always had problems with dialogue
Good chapter -- I like the way you continue to make Tolkien a believable character.
I think that Tolkien would see the Aragorn fell sequence as a swipe from the story of Beren and Luthien. It seems to me that Beren gets knocked out or wounded nearly to death several times, only to be revived by Luthien's love and magic.
Author's Response: Thanks for the advice.
I enjoyed this.It is fun to imagine what Tolkien might think.
Author's Response: Thanks. I am updating soon.
I think Tolkien would be able to handle the cutting out of Tom Bombadil . . . it's so like the flexibility of oral epics. I like the way that he figures out the changes, even though he doesn't like them all. Me, I've never gotten over the fact that Frodo figures out the riddle of the doors instead of Merry, even though I know why.
I'm looking forward to what you have to say about the second and third movies -- I think Tolkien would hate the glorification of the battle for Helm's Deep: It always seemed like a backdrop for the Legolas-Gimli friendship in the book.
Author's Response: Yeah, I think that went on way too long, it only took up one chapter in the book, but I guess it appealed to a lot of people. I'm trying to decide how Tolkien should deal with the whole "Aragorn fell" sequence. I'm updating soon!
Excellent job! I really want to hear more. Poor Tolkien. Favorite line: "Is that the Mouth of Sauron? He looks so evil."
Author's Response: Thank you!! Tolkien will be even more aghast at the fan fiction!
Hahaha! This was super. :) It was nice to have it point out some of the big differences between the book and the movie and why the director did it. Nicely done!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm going to update soon...I hope.
This is funny!! And very good too!!
Please, write about the TWO TOWERS and RETURN OF THE KING!! (the extended editions will be even better)
Author's Response: Thanks. Yes, I will continue with the other two movies. Then I will write about his reaction to fanfic!
Oh my gosh! That was wonderful, and a joy to read! I love this idea! Please continue on with the story, because I'll be happy to read it! This is definitely going on my favorites! EXCELLENT work! ~God bless
Author's Response: Thanks! It was fun to write, because I've wondered how Tolkien might react to the movies and our fanfic.
