Once again, you have outdone yourself . This chapter was absolutely stunning, rich in emotion and detail...Just gorgeous work! I love the part about the braids most of all. Such a tender love too, brings tears to my eyes. I cannot wait for the next chapter!

Your description, as always, is absolutely lovely. You really make your readers feel exactly what your characters are enduring emotionally. Excellent work! One small aside- "Sylvan" should be "Silvan". Can't wait to read more soon!

Author's Response: Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I did look up the word in my huge Collins English Dictionary and the primary spelling was Sylvan and silvan was listed as meaning the same but the definitions were recorded under the word spelt with a Y. Obviously another case of England and America spelling a word differently, colour/color grey/gray and so on, but as I found silvan with an I mentioned in Unfinished Tales I will change it when i next add/edit. What is good for Tolkien is definitely good enough for me. Thanks :)

That was absolutely lovely! You really sum up the way I imagine Legolas and is family to be like. One of the elements I like best about your stories is the way you write Thranduil. Too many stories (in my opinion) paint him out as stern, cruel and horribly abusive. Amidst that, your writing is most refreshing. Best Wishes, Adoralyna

Author's Response: Thanks, Adora. I agree that there are too many evil Thranduil stories. To each his own, of curse, but I can't help feeling that Legolas wouldn't be the elf we know and love, if he had bee raised by an abusive father.

After loving The Wrong Path as much as I did, I keep wanting to read this story. I've started to numerous times but for some reason, I am always interrupted after the first or second chapter.

I've made it to five today and I am officially hooked! Your writing is so beautifully descriptive and you remain the queen of the cliffhangers. I'm rather glad to be getting into it so late so I don't have to wait to see many of them resolved.

I'm sure you write for your own enjoyment but all the same, thank you for posting such wonderful work. It is truly a privilege and a pleasure to read everything you write.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Adora. I really appreciate the wonderful things you say about my work. I do write for my own enjoyment, however, I always keep my readers in mind. I want to make whatever I write, good enough so they wont think theyve wasted their time reading. Your kind words re-enforce that idea for me. Readers like you make all the hard work worth the effort.

I like this story personally and actually it was Legolas who shouted "Crebain from Dunland!"!in the movies.

The point about Asfaloth and Glorfindel, not Arwen, coming to the aid of Aragorn and the Hobbits is true in book verse, but I see you're going more by the movies here.
You can borrow things from the books, yes, but if you are doing a predominantly movie based fic then I see no problem with using movie plot.
In that case, it makes more sense to have Arwen rescue Frodo.

Reviewer: Adoralyna Signed
Date: 03/10/04 Title: Chapter 7: Ch. 7

Noldo has given you some good advice here, however I think the nitpicking is a little excessive for a predominantly movie based fic.
I think its okay to "fill in the blanks" yourself so to speak when one is going by the movies. If you try to write a movie fic while relying on book verse to back you up, a lot of things are not going to match up anyway, especially attributing dialogue to the correct speaker.

"Frodo, come and help an old man." was actually a line spoken by Gandalf in the extended edition of The Fellowship of the Ring.

I understand wanting to stay true to canon, especially in book verse, but this site allows for book and movie fics even if they are independent of one another

I think a good solution here would be for me to create two seperate categories, one for book verse and one for movie verse.

I look forward to another chapter of this story and more work from Noldo as well.
