I like how you developed some canon characters here. I'm surprised at how much fun the orcs can be.
Author's Response: I prefer canon. Maybe it's a crutch to rely on Tolkien to give me characters, but I develop some of my own here and there. I've always been curious about the people Tolkien didn't have the chance to introduce to us properly (orcs included), so I'm really glad I found fanfiction so I can bring them to life as I see them.
Thanks for the review and thanks for the challenge. It was fun!
Hahaha! That's great. Love how with orcs, "puppy dog eyes" are literal.
Author's Response: I can't wait for your next installment. One of the substitutes has GOT to be an Elf . . . but which Elf? Great cliffhanger.
Thanks for the review!
...Ew... I like the story...but by Valar are orcs crude!
Author's Response: Oh yeah. It's what makes them so darn endearing! The challenge came from jules14's "An Elf's Love" MST-fic. It's painful to read the original lines, but Jules' riffs are hilarious.
Thanks for the review.
