Title: Chapter 1: Trolls and Oliphaunts Reviewer: Ria Signed
I don't usually like the Fellowship-as-children genre, but this is charming. I liked your foreshadowing to events of LotR, and I like your use of words, eg, "the future oliphaunt-slayer of Mirkwood scampered".

Author's Response: Haha, I'm so glad! Thank you!

Most excellent crossover. Movie Legolas and do make a good vapid comic duo. It's the hair, I think.

Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 Reviewer: Ria Signed
So this is a Troy fic rather than an Iliad. It's funny, of course, because Achilles was dressed up as a girl for some of his earlier years, when his mother still hoped to keep him from joining in the war. The feminine form of the name would be Achilleis, like Chryseis the daughter of Chryses.

A very interesting concept.

Filk Fest by Dwimordene Rated: PG [Reviews - 5]
Summary: A collection of filks, all parodic/satiric in nature. Not to be taken too seriously, obviously. PJ and Fran guest star in "The Plot Warp." Newest addition: "With These Dudes?", a corruption of Kirsty MacColl's fine song, "In These Shoes?"

Sounds like a great setting. I've always wondered how they dealt with the remaining orcs in the resettling of Ithilien . . . plus Shelob's still there. Many adventures are possible for Fey.
Editorial note: Faramir should be poring over documents, rather than pouring. They're homophones.

I've always wanted to know what happened when Legolas and Gimli sailed west . . . This is a good idea. Also, hooray for writing a story about Gimli!

I have to agree with Nieriel Raina that there are rather a lot of lines from the movies in an otherwise very original story.

Author's Response: Yeah, there probably are. This was one of the first fics I ever wrote, so it is definitely not the greatest.

This story mixes Galadriel into a whole new world, the one she knew in her past life. Her experiences at Hogwarts shape her forever.

Summary: Raystelieme just wanted to have a family. Or a boyfriend. Or both. Or the Fellowship drooling over her. But really, the Fellowship has seen *way* too much of Mary-Sues. So, they decide to get rid of her... But Raystelieme is much more a troublesome Mary-Sue than most. Originally posted on "Middle-Earth on TV!" Lots of misadventures, parodies, crossovers, chaos, and sarcastic humor. I promise.

I love the detail of her selecting her smile. Also, the song is quite funny.

I will definitely read on!

Author's Response: :D Thanks, glad to have an appreciative reader!

By the way, if you think the song is funny now, you should see my brother sing it, in a tutu and all frou frou things, complete with a blonde wig. Quite disturbingly hilarious.

I think you have a great idea (kind of like Glen Cook's Black Company character, the Lady), but the choppy style you chose makes it harder to take in. Even though it's humor, it seems like an epic subject.
