LMAO!!! I really love this!

Author's Response: Thanks!

Summary: This is the continuing saga of a 36 year old female soldier who finds herself in Middle Earth during The Return of the King. This is part one of a series which will follow the plot of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings books. She is not a tenth walker and the events as written by Professor Tolkien will not be rewritten to accommodate her. Her part in the story and her interactions with the main characters will occur in places and times that Tolkien did not include in his writings.

I really missed reading this story while the site was down. I really enjoyed the new chapters! Keep it up.

Author's Response: I\'ll bet I missed my reviewers at least as much! Thanks for the feedback. It was hard writing without it.

Date: 25/09/06 Title: Chapter 18: Frodo’s arrival

Yay! Another great chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks! Don\'t you wish there were this kind of correspondence to read from Tolkien when he was writing? I get a lot out of these reviews and have integrated a lot of ideas from here into the story.

Date: 24/09/06 Title: Chapter 17: The tale is told

This is a fascinating story! I've definitely become a fan!

Author's Response: Hey! A new reader! Glad you like it! Thanks for the feedback, it really gets my spirits up and makes me write faster.

Date: 27/09/06 Title: Chapter 19: The Council Convenes

Not to sound like an idiot . . . but WOWIE! Loved it. Especially the part where Gandalf responds to the question about who counsels him.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked that. I like Gandalf and I like the idea that he might have a real personality. Thanks for the feedback!

I enjoyed this chapter! Very well written. Keep it up.

Author's Response: Already working on CH 22! Thank you!

Date: 01/10/06 Title: Chapter 22: The game's afoot; or rather, a hand

Elaura's sense of humor in this chapter is wonderful, as always. It's great that she manages to keep readers grinning even after she loses some fingers.

Author's Response: Well, that\'s a bit of my own character. My family has always been good at dark humor and keeping things light when times are tough.

Thanks for the feedback, I\'ll try to get the next chapter up today.

Date: 04/10/06 Title: Chapter 25: Explanations and Frustrations

You're a very clever writer . . . this story is amazing. I can't wait until you write the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you! Stay with me, I have to take a short break (no more than a day or so). Army stuff, you know. Thanks for the review!

Date: 06/10/06 Title: Chapter 26: Home

Did you have to end the chapter? LOL. It was so good!

Author's Response: Now that is something every writer dreams of hearing! Don\'t worry, I\'m already writing the next one and it picks up right where I left off. Originally I hadn\'t planned to end it there, but once I wrote the words, I didn\'t have any choice.

Thanks for the review!

Date: 06/10/06 Title: Chapter 27: The first day of the rest of my life

Yay! You added more today! I didn't want to have to wait too long to read more . . . great chapter!

Author's Response: I\'m nearly finished with the next chapter. It\'s finally time to leave Rivendell.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Date: 07/10/06 Title: Chapter 28: Many Happy Days and Nights

Loved this chapter! I like how you portray Gimli to be so creative in this story. He comes up with some very interesting devices! :-)

Author's Response: Gimli IS a genius. There isn\'t anything he couldn\'t make with wood and metal, I\'m sure of it!

Thanks for the review, keep reading!

Date: 22/10/06 Title: Chapter 37: Gandalf's Return

I love how you included the Ents in this chapter. It was great!

Author's Response: My mom has been wondering what happened to the Entwives ever since she read The Lord of the Rings the first time. She\'s given me a lot of ideas throughout this book and I\'ve been thinking about that one since the beginning. I\'m glad you liked it, I get a strong feeling Elaura will meet more Ents and Entwives.

Thank you for reviewing, I hope you like the next book as much.

Summary: Representatives of all the free peoples of Middle-earth have gathered for a council. But little do they know what Lord Elrond is planning.





I followed the scene from the movie, because it is shorter, but the characters consist of the ones from the book.

I had the read this story again 'cause it's so funny! I know you got my review before the site crashed, but another one couldn't hurt, eh? This play/story is hilarious.

Author's Response: Well, as I said, I\'m not using that account anymore...but I so had to repost this one! My English teacher loved this so much he said we should do a show with it...it never happened though...I seriously love this fic...I spent hours trying to make it hilarious...I guess my goal was acheived! Hannad for reviewing! ~Mel

I submitted a review before the site crashed . . . sadly, it was erased. So I'll say what I said before: haunting and wonderfully written!

Author's Response: Thankyou! I was upset when the site crashed and all my reviews got deleted, I\'m really grateful you reviewed again! =)

Summary: This script depicts what really happened to Gandalf in the mines. I cahnged almost all the characters' personalities. Mostly movie-verse, but with elements from the book.

Just like The REAL Council of Elrond, I'm rereviewing. Boromir's so ridiculously and wonderfully comical in this! I love it.

Author's Response: Thanks...since his dad favours him more than Faramir I thought that I should make him overly attached to his father. Thanks for reviewing! ~Mel

That was awesome! All your writings always are! Oh, I know it's none of my business, but, while reading the reviews, I had the oddest feeling that you've met Androboy. He should take the personal stuff elsewhere . . . can't believe he railed against this great song!
Signed,
Bee (Brassen)

Author's Response: Thanks! And yes, I have met Androboy......I\'ll explain when I send you my next chapter. And I agree with you, he should take it elsewhere. Unfortunately I cannot stop him, but what bugs me is that this song is about people I knew five years ago, way before I knew him. Like I said, I\'ll tell you the rest by e-mail. Hannad Brassen! ~Mel

All this stuff is exactly what goes on with me! I think every LOTR fan goes through at least a few of these things. It's sometimes great just to think about all the joys and occasional traumas that LOTR puts you through.

Author's Response: Yeah, there are ups and downs with becoming an LotR freak! Thanks for reviewing! ~Mel
