Title: Chapter 1: A Little Night Music Reviewer: Elaura Signed
Beautiful. So little literature bothers with the love of a man and wife, and even less the love of Hobbits. You captured Sam and Rosie wonderfully.

Author's Response: Thank you! I know exactly what you mean. Maybe that is why I like writing husbands and wives so much; no one else does it. I\'m a married woman myself, with kids, it is the kind of life I know best. Maybe most people think married life is boring, but I don\'t think anything could be further from the truth. If you enjoy such fics, I have also written a Merry/Estella called \'Starlight at Eventide\' that details a troubled time in their marriage and how, with Aragorn and Arwen\'s help, they overcame it. If you think hobbit romance gets short changed, poor Merry and his lady are even more so! (Tolks didn\'t even mention their children!) I am pleased you took the time to let me know that you enjoyed this piece.

Title: Chapter 1: 1 Reviewer: Elaura Signed
My dear authoress. I simply love your writings. Your Middle Earth is a joy to immerse myself in. One suggestion, please take it or leave it as you see fit. For imbeciles such as myself, who fail to notice the chronological dates which you have written your wonderful tales, perhaps you might place in the titles of your works some sequence number . . . or mayhaps even something simple such as: "Read this one first you dunce!" Simply because I had the misfortune of reading one or two out of sequence and lost a bit of the thread of conciousness as it were. My own fault of course, but when I first navigated this site I was encountering your works by title instead of by author as I now do. The only one that truly disappointed me when I found I had read it out of sequence is this one. As I am now hanging on your every word regarding The Heir of Meduseld and waiting with baited breath the next chapter, I find that I should have read this one before moving on to that one. It's a bit disconcerting reading these letters, knowing as I do that poor Bandy is now continuing in the unhappy task of searching for his Master's remains. It has taken some of the joy from reading this correspondence. On the other hand, it has given me somthing to read as I await the arrival of the next chapter in the Riddermark. Your faithful reader,

Title: Chapter 6: 6 Reviewer: Elaura Signed
You truly must be wrought of the same stuff as Master Tolkein. Could you possibly have conceived when you wrote of Legolas considering entry into the tournament that it would result in such close political and emotional ties with the Knights of Gondor? You have a deep understanding of the love and loyalty between warriors. I even see precursors to the Legolas of the Pottymouth series as well as the seeds of his relationship with ...owyn. Perhaps I lose myself too entirely in your fanstasies, but it soothes my soul to do so. To soothe your nerves I must tell you, although I love your world, I am merely a safe, sane (mostly) soldier in a faraway land enjoying the respite your writings give me. You have rekindled my imagination and it keeps me company. I would like to meet you someday and discuss your lovely world face to face, but I am in Japan and it is not likely. For what it's worth, I too am on the back side of 35 and have been in better health, though the army has yet to find cause to kick me out.

I am sure you are weary of my flattery, but I must tell you your writing moves me to tears and laughter and to anger and satisfation as well. Such a talent you have! It is not a simple thing to move an old soldier to such emotion, but it is a blessed relief to feel it, alone.

That is the most hilarious cock-up of a first date I have EVER heard! It even beats some of mine. And to think it could've happened to two of the most beautiful men on the planet! EGADS! I needed that belly laugh!

Author's Response: Hee! Thank you so much, I\'m glad that I was able to brighten your day. (and I suck for not responding.)

Brilliant! I love the compassion you have portrayed in Tolkein's characters. Not so much a Mary Sue as what anyone whould feel in such a situation. Staying true to what one might expect from Middle Earth despite such a random roll of the dice.

OK, I goofed. And now for some reason, instead of letting me delete my post and hide my shame I've double it, maybe even tripled it. Sorry. Great story, though. Loved it when Liv got tossed aside, I like her, and Arwen, but I'm just a little twisted when it comes to Orlando and Viggo.

Author's Response: Glad you like it... I like Liv and Arwen too, but I just wanted someone to mess things up, and she was the best for it :)

Summary: Four young women of Earth die and are reformed in a world unlike anything they may have expected to find in the afterlife. It is not a pleasant place, beset with large spiders, monsters, and rude men with pointy ears. Who will realize the Truth before it kills them (again)? Metafanfition; Harry Potter, Star Wars, Matrix, and Anime (heavily of InuYasha).

HILARIOUS! Loved "Pointy ears fell with style"! Bishounen too! I'm in Okinawa and you've hit Yumiko right on the mark!

Author's Response: How I miss Japan! Okinawa you say? I was in Yukosuka, with Camp Adventure as it were. Good times. Don\'t miss my barracks, but how I miss the mountains of Hakone and the Senjenken gardens. Every summer I get a craving for tempora, but what I\'ve tasted here in the states doesn\'t compare to the hole-in-the-wall family run restaurants. The taste still lingers. By all means, continue reading and sending me reviews! The fine songline circle they walk is closing in. This story literally *needs* readers for fuel, I am not ashamed to admit. At least I can promise you\'ll enjoy it.

It astonishes me how few reviews you get. Your work is truly artistic and worthy of praise. It's a good thing that doesn't seem to be your motivation, because you get too little of it. Thank you for continuing to write, I've enjoyed every single one of your Middle Earth stories. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar enough with the other stories to appreciate them, though they are very well-written as well. Thanks again!

Very good! Made me laugh. I'd hate to think of this poor production company trying to put my story together. Well-written too, that's the best part. I think Parodies can be the best and the worst fanfiction, yours is one of the best.

Author's Response: Thanks, that\'s very meaningful. I know what you mean about parodies: many of my favorite and least favorite stories are parodies.

Nice explanation! I'll bet they ended up in Asia and just liked it so much they never left. I'd probably stay in Okinawa, if I could manage to learn Japanese . . . but I just can't wrap my brain around it. Good story!

Author's Response: Nihongo wa muzukashi desu yo. (And that\'s about all the Japanese I have, apologies if it\'s misspelled.) Tolkien was so comfortable himself in Western Europe, he probably just couldn\'t admit that they liked it better in the East.
