Bio:
For those that don't know me:
Welcome to my bio ;)
I'm a pretty young, rather eccentric englishman, best known for my slightly insane brand of humour, and my stories Raiders on the Sea and the Orc survival guide. I'm currently writing a couple of humour fics and considering returning to a few of my other, more serious stories.

Note: Reviews make me happy, especially ones which let me know what I'm doing wrong! XD


For those who do know me:
*Ahem* Yes it's been awhile hasn't it? For all of those who enojy my stories and madcap humour I apologise for the hiatus. Not only was my computer broken but I had about 0 muse and exams looming.

By the by I'm back now and ready for action, so you can expect to see more of me and my mentalistic nature in the very near future!

On another note I'm cleaning house and deleting some of my older stories; namely the ones which weren't particularly popular and I won't be likely to continue them. Rest assured the OSG is not one of them!

Regards, Shadow Ranger.

In Flux by GreenWoodElleth Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 27]
Summary: Yeah, sure. I'd thought about it. I'd totally considered it. Going to Middle Earth by some magical means...yada, yada, yada the whole nine yards(with sexy elves to boot.) It was something I considered much in the way somebody would consider a holiday they hoped to but knew hey would never have.
I hadn't thought about dying in a bus accident. I hadn't thought about my friends being there. I hadn't thought about waking up with a new body, a new name, and a new history.
And to make it all the more dramatic...I am soo dead if I don't get my Latin homework in on time.

Insane, absolutely insane. Are you ever gonna... uh, you know, get the characters sorted out? I mean, crazyness is good but it is starting to wear a little bit thin...

Author's Response: I\'m sorry I didn\'t send this to you first. Its been really crazy at my house and I was so eager just to get this chapter in, I had to rewrite it from my lap top(there\'s actually a better chapter there, one thats written and way less crazy.) and was functioning with less than an hours sleep and a lot of sugar. I\'ll try and sort it out, again, I\'m really sorry. We\'ve had exams all week. Sorry :(

Just one thing, "your" is used such as "your cat"
However "Your a liar" Should be "You're" a liar" you are a liar see?
Other than that, I think it's a good take on the nature of some people, who might not be as nice as you think.
(not that I agree with the portrayal of Boromir, grr...)
Just kidding, keep writing!

Author's Response: Thanks very much for your criticizm. My beta reader is currently not online so please excuse the spelling mistakes. I got worried at first about the Boromir thing... eep! I hope you enjoy what\'s to come! xxx

Elves are viscious, think of what happens when they capture defenceless orcs!

Begun... hm... looks like it never got started to me

Reviewer: Shadow Ranger Signed

It's a bit brief at points, just some constructive critisism
It's "slew," not slayed.
Punctuation goes inside the speech marks, not outside.
Other than that, good, but just a bit too short.

Author's Response: Thanks for the advice!

Reviewer: Shadow Ranger Signed
Date: 30/12/06 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6

I like it, but still remember, commas on the inside of the speech marks

Reviewer: Shadow Ranger Signed
Date: 10/01/07 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9

Well, that was somewhat unexpected, Legolas and Gimli died, but Boromir didnt? I like the style, and you've extended it a little longer.
(although you didn't actually write anything for the first chapter, the wait was worth it)

YEEHAH! Frodo died Frodo died! *goes on crazy mad victory dance, reminiscent of an orc with two left feet, since he can't dance!*
I like it very very (X several billion) much, well done Sarah!
