very good chapter, i love legolas and gimli taunting guy he deserves every bit of it lol. thanks for writing update again soon
Author's Response: Legolas and Gimli did enjoy pulling this prank on Guy. I think if they had a chance, they'd pull quite a few more, no matter what Aragorn says.
Valar! What's happened to Balian?! Update soon please! The suspense is killing me!
Author's Response: What's happened to Balian? I've left a couple of clues in this chapter but for the complete answer you'll have to wait for the next chappie ~I know, I'm evil :P
Personally, I like Childminder of Rohan more than intoxicated Knight!!!
Author's Response: Well, I sort of thought he's been too perfect lately. Balian's not that much of an angel so here's a not so brilliant side of him.
I'm glad you're using so many of the great scenes from the extended edition. I liked it that they managed to include Saruman and Grima's ends even though they didn't have the Scouring of the Shire. You've really managed to take the movie's words and scenes and make them your own through the lens of Balian and by adding more -- it flows very well.
That said, I thought Legolas and Gimli were acting a mite childish in the last chapter.
Author's Response: I love the scenes from Extended Edition. The childish behaviour were all for the sake of comedy and they always struck me as being rather immature.
This story is very good so far, I enjoyed reading it. I can't believe Legolas was going to make Gimli act like a donkey! I'm still laughing! XD
Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I'm glad you like it.
The donkey scene was hilarious! I'm glad you are giving the characters distinctive personalities, it makes this so fun to read.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed that. I love exploring the characters' personalities. I thought there was not nearly enough in the books or the films, at least not for the minor characters.
I was laughing almost all the way through this chapter! I loved the bit where Legolas points out how many orcs he ACTAULLY killed. What would Legolas have to do if he lost the bet? Would it be the same, or was Gimli planning something fouler?
Author's Response: Legolas is not the type to admit that he lost, especially not when he actually won. I think if Legolas lost, Gimli would've made him do the same thing. Anything fouler might not be considered something that friends would do to each other.
I loved this chapter, espcially the ending! Sorry I've only gotten around to reviewing now, I've been really busy with coursework (Why they all wait until the summer term and THEN pile it on us is beyond me)
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that ending. It is really strange how work is always given in the last term. It's the same for me.
Do reviews count if they're on the same chapter mutiple times? Well, anyway I think you've done a pretty good job combineing the two; some people can't do crossovers at all. Update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I'm glad you thought the characters weren't OOC.
i like this chapter and your story, its getting better as you go along. i like you portraying legolas as quite immature as he seems like this in parts of the book. thanks for writing update again soon x
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that part. I was afraid Legolas might be a little OOC.
One word. Hilariousness! Well actually, come to think of it, that's not really a word. So I guess I don't have any words. Oh well. Still my favorite story.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that chapter. Balian's not too amused with his new nickname :)
Still love your story(I don't know any other way to phraise it even though that's probably exactly what everyone else says). Oh, by the way, when Theoden is saying his piece before they ride out, I've heard that its "Rohan" instead of "ruin". I'm not sure if that's right or not and I kind of agree with you, I think it sounds like he's saying "ruin", too. Just thought you might like to know. Keep up the good work. ;)
Author's Response: Well, in the subtitles Theoden says ruin so I'm assuming that whoever did the subtitles did it right. I'm glad you're enjoying this.
that was a really good chapter, i hope guy gets his due for shooting at balian. keep up the good work
Author's Response: No one knows Guy tried to shoot Balian but Guy will get what he deserves before the end. Knowing him, he won't stop trying to kill Balian.
It is very good!! I love the bit of Gimli not wanting to retreat!! Keep on the good work!!
Author's Response: That was funny. I always thought it was interesting when he asked 'what are we stopping for?' when it was totally obvious why.
Hm...Anyway of getting a Uruk-Hai to do Guy in? Or if not, can Guy make a swipe at Balian? It would be interesting to see some real combat between them!
Author's Response: Nope, Guy can't die yet. I still have use for him. And knowing Guy, he won't have the courage to fight Balian directly because he knows he's not as good. There was a scene in KoH Director's Cut which showed exhausted Balian fighting Guy (who was fresh) and Balian bet Guy.
