woot! this looks like fun! i'm on for the ride!
oh this is good, my only wish is that I would have found it sooner!
Hahahah! That made me laugh, I hope Aragorns happy :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m always happy to make somebody laugh.
Wow!!!! I have been reading from the beginning, how can you write so well? it almost makes me want to give up! But I'm not that type of person. It's a truly cool story, keep writing PLEASE.
Author's Response: A NEW REVIEWER!!!
NEVER NEVER NEVER give up! Writing is just taking reading one step farther. If reading can take you into another world, when you write you get to create another world. Finishing this book is up there in the top ten best feelings I\'ve ever had, well actually the top five. Stay with me and keep reading.
I love the feedback and I appreciate you.
Go Elaura! I kept on imaging myself cheering on the sidelines :) I make a better cheer leader than warrior! Porr Legolas, He is really getting stressed out.
I love the poem, I learnt it when I was 10, I like the fact that it almost makes sense, but not quite.
Author's Response: It makes a whole lot more sense to Elaura than ever before. I think sometimes she expects to see the Cheshire cat.
Legolas will have to stay stressed out for a few more chapters, though he\'s not so worried about orcs . . . it\'s the men who follow Sauron and Saruman that bother him.
I think you\'re a great cheerleader! I enjoy reading your reviews, they help me stay motivated, thanks!
euhhh what a disgusting song! But the rest of the chapter was, great! She just had to hurt herself with that thing didn't she! Poor girl, I bet Legolas really freaked out then! And now I know a little more of what he saw in the mirror, the suspense continues... you better update soon! :)
Author's Response: Sorry about the song, Elaura\'s personality tends to change when she fights. I think Galadriel was right when she said Elaura has some orc-blood in her. Oh well, we all have our demons.
Legolas has spent too many years caring for \"his people\" generically. It\'s a whole new thing for him to care about Aragorn, Gimli and Elaura especially. He seems to be learning how to love particular people, not just Nature in general.
I\'m writing as fast as I can. 8-) Thanks for the feedback.
Cool, you have started the next book! I can't wait to see the "three hunters" reaction! :) Keep on updating,and I will keep on R&R :)
Author's Response: Thanks! I look forward to your update. I\'ll be writing more this weekend. I\'ve had a rough week. Thanks for the feedback!
Finally, you have updated! Now i'm really curious, what did Legolas see in the mirror? Ahh! It's going to drive me nuts! And here's a big hug and some e-cofee (+Chocolate!) to make you feel better about your bad month!
Author's Response: YUMMY! That helped more than you know. I love hugs and mocha coffee.
I really am sorry about the time lag. This army thing is really starting to get under my skin . . . but I\'m all better now. Thanks for the review and keep reading.
You know how that mirror goes, it\'s all in how you perceive it and it\'s ALWAYS a big hairy secret.
YAY!! She finally got her coffee :)
*does a little dance*
I love it myself, but don't drink it that often. Good old Saruman, he prepared everything very well.
I loved the: "and you and Legolas thought the term "bull headed " was just an expression!" That was great!
Now she just has to deal with Saruman :)
Legolas is loosening up a bit too, I think he is accepting Elaura more.
The red lady huh? So we have a blue lady (Tuniviel) THREE white ladys (Eowyn, Galadriel and Elwing)
and now a red lady.....
If I was in ME I would be the pink lady :) or maybe the purple one....
*laughs at mental image*
Keep it up, I really enjoy your story, its a highlight of my day.
Author's Response: Mmm, coffee. I think I need some right now. Elaura is going to wait until she can lay her hands on some sugar and cream before she shares her bounty with her friends . . . after all she wants them to LIKE it and it takes a while to develop a taste for black coffee.
Elaura doesn\'t really want to deal with Saruman, but she won\'t have a choice. She and Gimli definitely have a stubborn streak in common, but she isn\'t as interested in seeing Saruman as Gimli is.
I can picture you in ME dressed all in pink and purple. Very royal!
Thanks for the review!
You have finished it! Book two is done :) PARTY!!!
You did well with the Saruman/Elaura confrontation, better than having her stare him down!
Does Elaura get to tell the fellowship about Fanfic? That would be a hilrious conversation :) lol:)
I liked that song, I learnt it in german once, it's so sweet.
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'ve been in Korea for a few days, but I\'m planning to get back to writing ASAP. I don\'t think I\'m going to have her try to explain fanfiction . . . the idea of her even mentioning slash would probably get Elaura tarred and feathered. LOL! Thanks for the review!
Hey this is really well written (in my humble opinion LOL) who cares if there is heaps of stories like it! Just write what you love, it shows. Never think you have to apoligise for what you write, just don't expect everyone to love it. I love it so far though!
Author's Response: thanks for the advice, i\'ll try to remeber it!!!
WoW! That was awesome! You described the characters very well,
I like the 'bored' Estel :) Elladan and Elrohir were also portrayed well.
Just one little thing, do you think Estel would have called Lord Elrond father? Maybe he would have, I just never thought of it quite like that before. Keep on writing :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m really glad you enjoyed it. I just can\'t help thinking that any fifteen year old boy living in Imladris would get pretty bored after a while. And I\'ve always loved the idea of Elrond and Estel having a close, father-son relationship. That\'s just my little indulgence there. Anyway thanks for reviewing! =)
"If we die, I'll kill you" haha!! I like that line :) You describe emotions and settings extremly well! And you have a good vocab. I liked the fact that Estel said he liked the evenings, 'cause Arwen's the evening star :)
well done :)
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! Heehee...I admit I was giggling to myself while I wrote that line. Yes, I laugh at my own jokes. Doesn\'t everybody, though? It\'s the sort of thing one of my friends would say, so I couldn\'t help thinking of her while I wrote it. Oh, I\'m stupid, I didn\'t even pick up on the Evenstar thing! It was just pure coincidence. I guess I\'m modelling a lot of Estel\'s personality traits off myself...he\'s very reckless, can\'t wait to grow up, is definately not a morning person, etc. Anyway, I am glad you liked this. Thanks!
Well, that is one of the down things about school! I am homeschooled, so even if I was invisible, no one would see me anyway! LOL. (Mum doesn't count :)) I have friends though. I think you missed out a y. the poem read
"the stopped the time"
instead of "they stopped the time"
It was a good poem though.
Author's Response: Oh, thanks! I\'ll have to fix that! Glad you found that for me! I have never been homeschooled, but I guess that it has it\'s advantages eh? ~Mel
well, thats some people alright! I wouldn't get to close to that type!
Good song :)
There was only one thing. Be and Me, Kind and Mind rhyme, but the rest of the end words don't. I do not know whether this was intended or not.
Author's Response: I try to stay away from them, but they follow me!!! And no, I didn\'t intend to make all of them rhyme. I just write it from the heart and don\'t bother making it rhyme. I suck at that anyways! Thanks for reviewing!!! ~Mel
That was very, descriptive :) it really sounded like the seas call.
Author's Response: Thanks, I really tried to make it seem like that. And thank you so mush for the review. I really need the insperation!
*clap clap clap* Sprouts are indeed inedible! VERY GOOD
Author's Response: It\'s very true.
I was beginning to think you had gone!
good chapter (as usual) and I will comment on it more fully next time, my time is running out!
Author's Response: No, I\'ll keep writing. I\'m sorry I was away for a bit, but I won\'t stop until it\'s done! Thanks for the review!
Wow that is so cool! she must be going to have a stress out soon, I would have a fit of hystrerics if anything like that happened to me!
Okay, maybe not...but still!!
Author's Response: Well, you know how it is. The weight of the world is easier to bear when you have friends to help you.
Sorry it\'s taken me so long to respond. I missed some reviews somehow and then I got caught up in my day job. Thanks for the review, I\'ll try to keep up in the future.
Love the picture, the horses are so sweet! (and they look pretty proud to) Legolas is way to good to be true, maybe you should hve him throwing a fit or something, nah I'm just kidding, but Elauras pretty lucky!
Author's Response: Isn\'t he just? Everytime I try to write something negative about him the voices in my head scream at me until I reconsider. They really are the most honorable bunch, aren\'t they?
I love those horses, too.
Thanks for the feedback!
