She Took a Holiday by Ria Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 15]
Summary: This is a response to GreenWoodElleth's "Bad Girls" challenge. I was terribly intrigued by the idea of a bad (not evil and plotting to rule the world, but merely wicked) female hobbit. Xenobia Took gradually goes from bad to worse in the course of her long and adventurous life.

Title: Chapter 4: IV. Dark Doings Reviewer: Beregond5 Signed
This chapter was great. And this is the first time we see Xenobia naughty! :D I hope she didn't hurt herself too much because of the fall - or that Bombadill caught her or something.

And now for something completely different: Aww... you're welcome! *blushes*

Author's Response: No, really -- good reading is a very valuable resource.

Lol! Good explanation on how the sign of the Prancing Pony came to be, and I absolutely loved the beginning where she was dreaming of the young hobbit. :D

Author's Response: I\'m glad to hear it.

Another beautiful song. :) Btw, have you ever heard of the band Within Temptation? This song is a bit like what that band sings in general. I even closed my eyes to imagine the song performed by that band in particular. (Yeah, I'm crazy like that). Excellent work like always. :)



Author's Response: no, I haven\'t haerd of them. maybe i\'ll try and find a song of theirs and listen to it. thanks for the review! iggybaby

Title: Chapter 1: The Warlord Reviewer: Beregond5 Signed
Very nice! This is a very interesting interpretation of what Tolkien said about Khamul and I like how you take his story even further. Congrats on some good work. :)

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I\'m actually disappointed he didn\'t write more about the Nine. And since many don\'t write about them...well, it\'s up to me then. ^-^

Title: Chapter 1: Look, Ada! Reviewer: Beregond5 Signed
Cute. I liked it. :) Just one thing though: perhaps it would be better if you separated the paragraphs. It might prove easier to read this way.

Author's Response: Good suggestion. This was actually copied from my account on another site, so I wouldn\'t have to re-type it. I\'m just lazy like that. ^-^

Title: Chapter 1: Burzum and Ulkum Reviewer: Beregond5 Signed
Lol I loved their "violence" and their "understanding" in the end. Very cute, even for a fic that features Orcs!

However, there's something I think I should point out. In some of the quotes you have there it would be better to have a comma instead of a full-stop, because you kind of answer the question what did the Orc grunt (for example). It's a thing that goes whenever you use verbs such as "said", "agreed", "noted" and such.

Another haunting song. Good work as always. I'd like to point out just one thing: I think it's "forsaken", not "foresaken"; but I could have it wrong.

Heh, first time reading Kingdom of Heaven fan fic ever, and I have to say that it's gorgeous. Your characterization of Balian is excellent and your descriptions are top notch. Kudos. :)

The Younger Brother by Ria Rated: PG [Reviews - 1]
Summary: This is a Troy/ Iliad fic. It examines the character of Teucros, who's like Faramir in some ways. When faced with temptation, the cost of yielding is high, and there's no reward for refusing.

Now complete, much to my relief.

Title: Chapter 1: Uneasy in the Camp Reviewer: Beregond5 Signed
Not bad, not bad at all. I was a bit skeptical that you touched a topic like that, since Greek Mythology is dodgy (and I'm very picky), but I must admit that you presented the characters quite well, especially Teucros too. For some reason it seemed kind of rushed towards the end, but it could as well just be me.

Still, I wasn't disappointed. Good job. :)

Author's Response: Thanks, Beregond. This was my very first original plot bunny, so I just had to write it out, but it could probably use a little more context.

Hmm... I wonder which anime it is. ;)

With that said, I liked what you did with this, especially the way all seven drabbles connect and so make a bigger story. Good work. :)
