Author's Response: *blush* Widget is a lot of fun, just the comic relief they need. You on the other hand, need a llama! Alpacas are good sheep herders. I understand the parrot, he\'s been offered grapes so much he probably thinks that\'s how you say \'hello\'! Thanks for the compliment and the review!
washing in a mumaks foot interesting, i dont know if i would or not eww
thanks for writing and keep up the brilliant work
Author's Response: Thank you. Apparently elephant feet are still used as buckets in countries where the locals are permitted to use elephant products, as when the herds are culled or the animal dies naturally. It is something my mother told me she saw on Animal Planet. It makes sense, but it would take some convincing, even for me. Luckily, the Valar are very convincing.
\r\nThanks for the review!
the dead orcs were on sale here too lol,
i loved darth wiget he kicks crow butt. thanks for writing update again soon
Author's Response: Dead orcs are always on sale after Halloween. On the other hand, it\'s still June in the story. Hope you like the next chapter! Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. Hope you like the next one too. Thanks for the review!
keep up the good work
Author's Response: The secret is no secret; I\'m completely insane. I\'ll have to keel Maglor\'s reaction in mind. I half expect him to show up unannounced. I hope you enjoy the next chapter, it closes some loops and opens a few more. Thanks for the review!
what a guest list, kings lords, saviours of middle earth, the party will be very crowded but i should think they will manage. cannot wait for the next chapter update again soon.
Author's Response: How about two new chapters? You\'re absolutely right, with all those guests it is a little crowded, so much so that it wouldn\'t all fit into one chapter. It didn\'t even all fit into two chapters, but I haven\'t got the third one written yet. Put on your party hat and grab your noisemakers, I think you\'re going to have fun. Thanks for the review!
thanks for writing and update soon it continues to be the best story i've ever read bar the orignal trilogy
Author's Response: I think Elladan and Elrohir would have had a ball! I thought I was going to be disappointed when I posted both chapters at the same time, because I knew you guys would review them both at once, but now I\'m glad I did it. As a reader, it would have sucked to have to wait for the second half of the party and as the author, I\'m glad to get the reaction to the whole thing at once.
\r\nThank you very much for the great compliment. I hope you enjoy the next chapter as much. Thanks for the feedback!
the wedding was so sweet and descriptive keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thank you. Hope you like the memorial as much as the wedding. \r\nThanks for the review!
thanks alot for writing and update soon please
Author's Response: Interesting that you should mention that. It comes up again in the next chapter. I wonder where everyone else is? I hope noone was caught in that awful ice storm! Thanks for the review, hope you enjoy the next chapter!
legolas not being able to sleep aww i want to hug him lol, with all the elves sleeping around i'm sure he will be better. getting help from maglor i wish i could when i cant't sleep.
thanks for writing update again soon
Author's Response: Yes, it\'s quite comforting having them all in my head. They keep the Balrogs at bay, even at work. Dinenthor is going to sound like Mickey Mouse on helium for a while. Thanks for the review!
when i said the twins i meant elrohir and elladan because i love how you have written them.
i love how elaura talks to gandalf in this and helps him figure some stuff out, its hard when youve been needed for so long and then suddenly not anymore.
i would show you pictures from the weta thing but no cameras were allowed, plus the lotr stuff was in a dark room with lots of glass so they probably would have come out all reflections of the people in there lol. take a look a www.wonderfulworldofweta.co.uk
there it shows some of the stuff that is being shown. the dude that actually made the swords peter lyon is going to be talking soon so i'm off to that lol.
thanks for writing and making my day a little brighter, i'm off to read the next chapter x
Author's Response: Wow, I have really let things get away from me. Lots of things, but mainly fighting with this slow dial-up connection. Also, as I just posted on my accounts page, my proofreaders took a holliday. I'm getting things back together now and should have a few chapters to post by the end of the weekend. I checked out that website, they have some neat stuff! Take care and thanks for reading and reviewing. I promise I didn't leave everyone hanging intentionally.
i'm glad that windfola got a mention, i hope we find out what happens to him in the future some time?
thanks for writing and i hope the characters dont wear you out too much. x
Author's Response: I swear I remember answering these reviews. I must have dreamed it. Yes, I like the idea such a sweet young lady wasn't all alone. Maglor, Dog Whisperer. I'm sure we'll run into Windfola again. Life is wearing me out, the characters (usually) calm me down. Unfortunately, they haven't wanted me to stop to do anything but eat and shower. Sleep is apparently optional. I'll be posting soon. Again, I apologize for the lengthy break and not answering my reviews in a more timely manner. Thanks for writing.
another chapter to read so off i go, thanks for writing.
Author's Response: Just wait, it gets better. Ever want to see an Elf play? How about mud wrestling? Thanks for the review, hope you enjoy the next chapter.
have you heard the news, peter jackson is too produce the two hobbit films which i was hoping for, because he did such a good job of the three lotr ones. what do you think of this?
better go, one more project to hand in blah ecology.
merry christmas if you dont update before then
thanks for writing :)
Author's Response: Thank you. TWO Hobbit films? Amazing. I\'m looking forward to seeing that. With my nod to Halloween in the last chapter, I followed it up with a mention of Christmas. Of course, now I have to figure out how to explain Christmas to the Middle Earth crowd. Also, The Hobbit (animated version) gets a mention; I think you probably put that in my head somehow. I\'m going to try and get one more chapter in before Christmas. Thanks for the feedback!
legolas, aragorn, thranduil and mud how more right can you get hehe, unless you added the twins Am i right in thinking its the end of june in this chapter coz i get confised with the dates?
thanks for writing and keep up the wonderful work.
have a great christmas and god bless
Author's Response: Sorry I didn\'t get it posted before Christmas. I meant to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, but I got into a writing frenzy and it\'s taken a day or two to sort it all out. Hope you like the next THREE chapters! Thanks for the review!
\r\nYes it is nearing the end of June. Aragorn will be going off with Gandalf to find the sapling of the White Tree this coming week.
thanks for writing off to read the other two x
Author's Response: Oh, have I ever been busy! Sorry it\'s been so long. I\'m in a new class and I type at a computer all day, so I don\'t feel much like doing it when I get home. The characters are getting insistent, though! Hope you enjoy the three I just posted. I love Captain Jack, too. Thanks for the review!
the bit about vampires made me laugh, i admit i am one of those, i have a thing for dracula which my parents dont like but hey, the uruks with wings is not a nice thought though.
thak s for writing you seem to have put of effort and work into theses chapters and they are wonderful. go widget super messenger lol keep up the great work x
Author's Response: Thanks! I can\'t wait for Widget and his friends to get back. I guess the reality of vampires is never as nice as our fantasies. The spy-ring issue will undoubtedly continue unanswered for a while. Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yep, it hasn't been easy, but I'm getting back into the swing of things. My reserve unit finally contacted me and I'm not looking forward to in-processing . . . again! Luckily it's just two days a month. Good luck in your career endeavours; if there's anything I can do to help, send me an email. Take care, and thanks for reviewing.
thanks for writing and keep up the good work
Author's Response: Sometimes I wonder who Elaura ISN\'t going to end up vomiting on. I\'m still busy, but at least I\'ve stilled myself enough to hear the voices from Middle Earth again. I\'ll do my best to post more often in the future. Thanks for sticking with me and reviewing.
all the little details and the picture of the symbol were great and i was laughing really hard at the thing between thranduil, legolas and elaura
great work keep it up thanks alot xx
Author's Response: I\'m ba-ack! Hope you\'re still out there. I truly enjoyed re-reading the whole story, although some of the old typos really got under my skin. I\'m glad you enjoyed this chapter, I hope you like the new one. I promise I\'ll update very soon. Thanks for reviewing!
i love how you write the girls getting together in this, you make them have fun while still retaining elveness.
cannot wait to see more of the contest, do we get to see more ellyn hotness, can you have elrond and celeborn fight it out - that i'd like to see.
thanks for writing and updating this x
Author's Response: Ohh, I don't think I covered anything between Elrond and Celeborn . . . maybe I'll write a little vignette just for you, since you're such a loyal reader. Your reviews are great too, they give me wonderful ideas. Believe me, keeping the Ladies in character when they're drinking is a challenge, I appreciate you letting me know I'm on the right track. I felt bad putting Hilda though all that, but she needed some face time . . . or rather muzzle time. I really can't imagine what the orderlies must have thought, seeing their king wiping a dog's rear. Thanks for the review, keep on reading!
i did read the whole first book of Typically atypical while you were gone just to try and fill the time, i also defected and went and read some harry potter fanfic so i'm glad youre back to get me back into middle earth.
thanks for writing and i hope you update again soon x
Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m about two-thirds finished with the next chapter, but I\'ve gotten off onto another track. It takes place about 40 years into Elaura\'s future. I\'m not sure I want to post it yet, because I haven\'t broken it down into chapters and there are spoilers concerning the current story-line. Please let me know if it is something you\'d like to read or if I should hold back until I finish this book. \r\nThanks for the feedback and for being patient with me.
in your response you asked about posting the storyline thats ahead of this time. of course its your choice but maybe do this book at least up too the birth of the babies because i'd like to read that before i read about them older.
anyway i'm off to read the next bit so thanks for writng and keep it up xx
Author's Response: I'm hanging my head in shame, here, both for not posting in so long and for not answering my reviewers. I've explained it a little in my bio, but I can't claim it's a very good excuse. Thanks so much for the review and I've decided to go with your suggestion about not posting the later storyline yet. Please let me know if you ever want it and I will be happy to send it along. I'm looking forward to hearing from you again!
Author's Response: Thanks. The closest I could find in Sindarin was norn which really means 'crabbed' or 'twisted' and I don't think that's what he was going for. Hope you enjoy the next two. We're getting very close to moving along, now. Stay with me and thank you for the feedback!
