"They each had similar features.
Fathomless grey eyes, sun-kissed hair, skin that seemed to radiate light. Beauty too real and too intense to be true. "

I love that part

"She had in her eyes, it seemed, the secrets to the entire world and everything in it. It was like the sun, the moon, the stars and the earth all came under that gaze."

love that

oh minor note..don't mean any disrespect cause frankly I think you're very good but it's "conversation"

That's all I've got to say that's negative


Author's Response: Oh no thanks, the more people that correct my spelling the better! :)

Well while we're on spelling.."comfortable"...that's it..I swear...I'm sounding arrogant now..;)

Author's Response: Haha, don\'t worry, I need to be told! I swear I went back and changed the spellings. It must be a subconsious thing to keep doing it wrong.

Title: Chapter 17: Chapter 17 Reviewer: Turemela Signed
when exactly did he insinuate she was a whore? I seemed to have missed that

Author's Response: Weel ya see, when i lost sopme of my chapters i had to rewrite a bunch of stuff, without going over the whole story to make everything fit again...Sorry. That was reall really really bad of me. Please forgive. In the old version Raleon got a bit more graphic and low with his accusations (?) so it did fit that he did insinuate he was awhore. But i thought that it really didn\'t help the plaot any to have them mad that much more at each other so i toned it down a bit. If you could you could tell what doesn\'t make sense to you and i\'ll try to get everything cleared up! A thousands Sorries!

Title: Chapter 16: A trip to the tailor and Legolas' stern warning Reviewer: Turemela Signed
I want you to know that I love the tact you displayed by making Legolas reproachful of her. The reaction was honest and shocking..I'm used to expecting the typical "mary sue" instant acceptance/ love thing.

I love your story so far.

Author's Response: Thanks! You may not like the next chapter too much. I couldn\'t resist. However, don\'t worry, she\'s going to be too busy for the next few days for anything else to happen and by the time the Council comes up, there won\'t be a male in Rivendell who would want to cross her path.

Title: Chapter 32: Awakenings Reviewer: Turemela Signed
Loved it and am amazed as usual..lol..I loved the crown part..and the political correctness for the times.."lord father" and the fact that there was all read a crown for ceremonies..good details..

The only thing that kinda irked me was this statement

. You males will get angry and we females will cry

Which is good in showing how frivolous reacting to useless and unavoidable criticism is..but you're talking about racism..and that's blantantly sexist..I realize the times are sexist..but for someone as purely feminist as Elaura..which I think she's a very "power to the females" narrator...I kinda had to scratch my head

Still totally amazing

Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review. Glad you liked the details!

On the sexism part, keep in mind Elaura was referring to \"we females\", meaning herself and Arwen. The twins already mentioned how sensitive Arwen is and Elaura knows herself. They would both very likely cry. They would be angry too and it\'s likely the males (especially the Elves) may shed a tear or two as well. Have you ever seen \"Courage Under Fire\"? The female officer begins to cry and the males get stupid about it and she looks them dead in the eye and says \"It\'s the STRESS damnit!\" Basically, Elaura does cry. She\'s done it often. What she doesn\'t do is lie. She hates getting weepy, but if she said she wouldn\'t or didn\'t that would be a lie.

Again, thanks for the feedback. I love to hear from all my readers, it keeps the creative juices flowing.

Not exactly new love..I commented in the first one..I've been reading but not talking..rare for me actually ;)

Author's Response: Ah. I\'ll have to go back. I knew I\'d seen your name before. I wonder if yours was one of the reviews that were lost in the crash? Thanks again and I\'m really glad you\'re still reading.

Author's Response: Nope, I found it. Oh well. My face is red. Merry Christmas.

*bows down a hundred times* and *gives a million hugs*

Sauron went down to Rohan...I. am. amazed. That is one of my favorite song..and I'm totally fanatical about knowing every word...you make Daniels and Tolkien proud. Quite a feat. :)

Author's Response: It\'s always been one of my favorites, too. I\'ve been trying to work it into the story since Rivendell. Can\'t you just picture the Rohirrim going wild over it? They remind me of my favorite country cousins, tall, handsome and fun-loving.

Glad you liked it, thanks for the review!

Love and loss by Sweetie Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 6]
Summary: AU: I am going on the basis that Celeborn is the son of Olwe, Lord of aqualonde in Valinor. King of the Teleri. Tolkien used this idea at first then dissmissed it, butI am picking it up. This follows Galadriel and Aeroniel (my fic character) best friends, whose familys in the end become bittter enemies. It also follows the Celeborn-Galadriel romance.

I was a bit confused towards the middle..but I love the dialogue at the begining..

The only thing that seemed out of place was Raeleon using the word "honey"

Please keep it up.

Author's Response: okay.... my sis said that this chapter could use some work too... do you think it\'s too out of place? Have any suggestions on what other endearment i should use?
Date: Oct 15 2006
Title: Chapter 2: War Cry Reviewer: Turemela Signed
"my sweet" maybe ..something like that...honey just sounds off to me..I'll re read it again..when I get the chance.

Author's Response: my sweet...that does sound better....

I don't understand the part where he says that he could give his word that she hadn't run..When did she run? and the word "vandalizing" that Raleon uses in the same sentence as "honey" i think you meant womanizing..I don't think it's useless..it just needs some clean-up

Author's Response: yeah, in the other chapters i had fixed so much of this stufff, but then the site crashed and it all went down the drain....i\'ll go over when i get home from school tomarrow.
