Summary: A newcomer with a perchance for Feanors treasure chest arrives in Mandos and decides to appropriate Feanor's rooms for himself and kill anyone who tries to resist him. Thankfully, everyone already is dead. Still, what with an oxygen-deprived Elf as an assistant, an idle wife, and a vain overlord! What's a Vala of the Dead supposed to do?

Title: Chapter 2: Insane What Love Can Do Reviewer: Nieriel Signed
This was so nice! I always love it when people take a moment from the movies or book, and make it so that we see so much more of what a character was thinking during that 5 or 10 seconds. whee. =D

Author's Response: I know that that little moment in the extended edition looks like they\'ve both completely given up to most people, but I never always thought there was something different happening there. Thanks so much for your review!

Forbidden by Larien Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 6]
Summary: Nienna and Haldir are in love, but it is forbidden for them to be together, under the order of Nienna’s mother, Galadriel. Nienna’s niece, Arwen returns to Lothlorien with her husband, Aragorn, and Aragorn’s friend, Legolas. Nienna sneaks off with them as they leave, pretending to have an urgent message for Elrond for two reasons: Haldir is returning with them, and she wants to be with him, and she wants to be free, away from her strict parents.

But Aragorn finds out and makes sure that Nienna and Haldir stay as far away from each other as possible. He keeps her under the watchful eye of Legolas. Nienna never liked Legolas to begin with, but after spending so much time with him to and at Rivendell, he grows on her.

Haldir is jealous and wants nothing more than Nienna’s love. Legolas feels the same way. Nienna must now choose between Haldir and Legolas. Her love for Haldir is forbidden, but her love for Legolas would be welcomed with open arms by her parents.

Title: Chapter 1: To Rivendell Reviewer: Nieriel Signed
Hi there -- I just had some comments about your fic so far. Well...your summary gives too much away, I think. You should give those details away throughout the story instead of right off the bat.

Also, this first chapter was a bit erratic. The characters emotions change extremely rapidly and their motivations are unclear (why exactly can Nienna not return until she has produced a family? Why can't Haldir return? Why is Galadriel so mean to Nienna -- surely it can't be because of Haldir only.) And when they are first walking through the woods, Nienna tells Haldir to "prove" he loves her by kissing her...despite the fact that they have already said "I Love you" before. It just makes her seem manipulative (and with the part that said "their lips crashed together" that was slightly strange vocabulary). don't really need tags at the end of the dialogue so much.

You have a great concept here, but I think you're dumbing it down a little too much (by focusing on cheap emotion like "crashing lips" or Arwen yelling after about a 10 second exchange for no reason really) without really explaining important things like how the heck she'd make it out of Lothlorien like that, for example. I don't mean to be harsh...just want to help :)

Title: Chapter 2: Return to Lothlorien Reviewer: Nieriel Signed
Nienna acts extremely childish...and why would Galadriel randomly decide to let them be together??
Date: Jun 01 2008
Title: Chapter 3: For the Love of Nienna Reviewer: Nieriel Signed
Ok...well...why exactly would Nienna go insane if she found out that someone else loved her????? That kind of defies logic. And why would she go crazy and assume that haldir is lying and that he must not love her?? And where was there any indication, any reason, that she would go to Legolas over Haldir? I'm sorry...but this is all highly improbable and very strange.
Date: Jun 01 2008
Title: Chapter 4: Unable to Make up Her Mind Reviewer: Nieriel Signed She breaks up with him after one fight? She randomly charges back and forth between two guys for apparently no reason? And Haldir is acting pretty stupid if he just randomly accepts her back without saying "gee, maybe I'll get hurt again"? And why is Galadriel being so creepy to her own daughter?

Landing in London by Chloe Kay Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 14]
Laughter.Romance.Coffee.Drama.Love.Hate.Friendship.Phone Calls.Trips.Moviestars.Money.Fame.

When Roxie's family moved to London as she was starting high school, she thought her life was over. That is, until she met Orlando. They became best friends, and now she finds herself living with him back in the heart of the city, 10 years later. Its almost like old times again...minus the fact that he's a superstar. Whatever.

This is the story of their lives. And no matter what happens or where they end up, they know they'll always be landing in london.

Title: Chapter 1: Scene One Reviewer: Nieriel Signed
HA! this was hilarious. I especially liked the part about sticking your head in the over and the other choices. roflmao *can't stop laughing* it's so absurd and yet so true, how can you not help but cackle? **We trust him. Wrongly** *cackles off into distance...*

Author's Response: Nieriel, Thank you for your review. However, these stories are not meant to be comedic. In my opinion, they provide characters with much depth that remain true to Tolkien. The œhumor setting under œgenre must have been a mistake. Clearly these are deeply dramatic stories with compelling undertones that show the desperation of the times. Excuse me while I write a slash fic to better illustrate my point. Much Love, KimberlyJane P.S.- Thank you for the nice review. I think I want one more chapter for this story, parody one more genre, and then maybe try to write a real fic. By the way, I just started \"Stolen Desert Gold\" and am really enjoying it, even if it lacks the unquestionable depth and intensity that is present in my works of dramatic genius.

:P good job, hehehehee. *glomps you*

Author's Response: Thanks so much! It was a ton of fun to write, and got my brain back in shape for summer AP work (bleh). Six books and six assignments to go along with them for two months. Really only one month because I\'ll be at Ithaca ALL of July for a musical theater I\'m going to try to post two more stories before I go...if I can ever decide on my next genre to parody.

Title: Chapter 1: 1, The Birth Reviewer: Nieriel Signed
I hope you continue this, but some points: We already know all the races, you don't have to explain them. Orcs are spelled with c's. And "1 girl had survived," and other instances where you used the number 1, you should type out the word.

Also, if you want to hook your readers a bit better, show, don't tell. This means don't give us a summary of Kelsey's ability and life and all the races, write a scene where it is shown to us by words and actions.

Author's Response: I thank you very much for your review. I know I wrote orcs with a K but that may come because I\'m Dutch and we write it with a K. The scenes that you mention will come. They are on the way but aren\'t ready yet. I\'m writing this while the second came in so i\'ll tell you also some things that you said in the second. Kelsey was a name that I just made up. I liked the name so I just used it. I hope that doesn\'t bother you. With emotions I\'m not so good. Also not with details. I\'m trying to perfect that but because this is not one of my newest it isn\'t that great yet. The bad guy died in the second chapter so I can\'t make him very evil anymore =P And I know that Haldir comes from LothLorien. But I like him and in later chapters I need him like that. If you don\'t mind =P Thanks again for your reviews and happy reading =D KelseyWhiteleaf

Title: Chapter 2: 2, The truth and rescue Reviewer: Nieriel Signed
Ok, if Kelsey is an elf, Kelsey would not be her name. It's quite unrealistic. Haldir lives in Lothlorien, not Rivendell. It would also be nice if you could try to make the emotions a bit more real by smoothing out and lengthening your sentences so they aren't choppy, as in the beginning when he was interrogating Kelsey. Otherwise it jerks the reader.

Please make that guy a better bad guy than your typical generic evil person? *bats eyes* please?

Show more of his point of view, his motivations, etc. Don't just go "he grinned evilly." "he slapped her." Go past the generic bad guy and make a really good one. :)
