Reviews by elfenears

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 three of a series which will follow the plot of J.R.R. Tolkien's 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 claim ownership of none of J.R.R. Tolkien's original plot or characters; however, Elaura and her story Typically Atypical are Copyrighted © 2006.

Title: Chapter 12: Nightmares & Dreamscapes* Reviewer: elfenears Signed
that was cool elaura kicks ass in dream world too

Title: Chapter 13: The Fortunate Stowaway Reviewer: elfenears Signed
nice chapter
will farin have any more in this story i like his character

Author's Response: You aren\'t the only one who likes him. I hadn\'t planned on keeping him around, but he\'s so popular.

Thanks for the feedback!

Date: Jan 02 2007
Title: Chapter 14: Life Lessons Reviewer: elfenears Signed
another great chapter
is the ability to enter dreams part of the bloodstone's gift?
keep up the great work xx

Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m still not sure what the Bloodstone does. It enhances Elaura\'s natural abilities, which is a really good thing physically since she wasn\'t in great shape when she came to Middle Earth. On the other hand, if it enhances her maternal instincts and her people skills, there\'s no telling what kind of mind-games she\'ll get twisted up in.

Thanks for the feedback!

Title: Chapter 15: The Winds of War* Reviewer: elfenears Signed
so cool chapter

your right about heart of ice lol

keep it up

will you continue after the war with legolas and her having a life together?


Author's Response: For a bunch of old guys they sure don\'t know much about women! I\'m glad you liked it.

Yes, I\'m sure there will be more after the war is over, lots more if what is bouncing around in my brain is any indication.

Thanks for the review!

Title: Chapter 16: Time For Another Good Idea/Bad Idea * Reviewer: elfenears Signed
i like the idea of elaura being bait
you said sam has 10 children i thought it was 13 but i may be wrong
keep it up can't wait for the final battle part

Author's Response: You\'re absolutely right! I\'ll have to fix that right away. Thank you! Thanks for reviewing, I\'m looking forward to the battle too!

Title: Chapter 17: "Sanity is madness put to good uses." – George Santayana Reviewer: elfenears Signed
i could never do that act nasty but its a very good idea can't wait for the black gate part

Author's Response: It reminds me of a child star who played the mean girl on Little House on the Prairie. She said for years people would come up to her on the street and tell her what a horrible little girl she was. People who knew her just told her it was because she was such a good actress. What surprises me is that the natives are good actors as well. Even Gimli!

Thanks for the review, I\'m looking forward to the Black Gate as well.

Thanks for the review.

Title: Chapter 46: Namárië! Navaer! Don’t Forget to Write! Reviewer: elfenears Signed
really great chapter
thank you for updating so quickly keep it up, i love reading your work

Author's Response: Thanks! As I said in the previous response, I\'m only trying to think of a title for chapter 47. I\'m drawing a blank on chapter 48, though. Must be something new around the bend.

Thanks for the review!

Date: Jun 26 2007
Title: Chapter 18: To the Edge of Night Reviewer: elfenears Signed
nice chapter
ooo i like the eyes idea
keep on writing your story is brilliant and also distracts me from college assignments thank you lol

Author's Response: Thank you. Everyone needs a good distraction. I sometimes wish I had something to take my mind off this story once in a while! LOL!

Thanks for the review!

Date: Jan 20 2007
Title: Chapter 32: Awakenings Reviewer: elfenears Signed
lovely chapter
more more *chants* lol
thanks for writing
xxx abi

Author's Response: Ahh. Thank you. Lot\'s of fun in the next few chapters. I\'m not sure where exactly I\'m going to end this book. I don\'t know how to handle the scouring of the Shire since Elaura won\'t be there. Book 4 will be entirely new material using Tolkien\'s appendices as a guide. Wish me luck!

Thanks for the feedback.

Title: Chapter 19: Me, Myself and Legolas Reviewer: elfenears Signed
nice chapter
i like how the shadow within had its own voice very spooky
thanks for the great story xx

Author's Response: You\'re quick! You read and reviewed before I realized I\'d left of the \"End of\" part! Thanks again for the feedback. It really keeps me motivated.

Title: Chapter 20: Fear and Loathing in North Ithilien Reviewer: elfenears Signed
this is a really good chapter
you are posting really fast keep it upxx

Author's Response: Thank you. Sorry it took me a couple of days to get 21 up. I needed a little rest.

Thanks for the review!

Date: Jan 24 2007
Title: Chapter 45: An Angel’s Demons Reviewer: elfenears Signed
really good chapter, rather violent between them but i guess if they both have issues.
really well written and kept me interested till the very end, i loved the different powers that elaura is gaining.
on a different note i finally managed to steal disturbed's album from my sister and got down with the sickness, it really does go well with elaura when she is angry.
keep up the good work and update soon x

Author's Response: Life with Legolas will never be dull. Thank you for the compliments. I\'m glad you had a chance to listen to the song, I\'m not real fond of the last part of it, but the first part does illuminate the fact Elaura isn\'t Pricilla Pureheart.

Hope you like 46, I just posted it. No sex, no violence, but some interesting information here and there.

Thanks for the review!

Date: Jun 26 2007
Title: Chapter 21: The Beginning of All Things Reviewer: elfenears Signed
woo ace chapter
i loved every bit of it
will you write an official wedding ceremony for elaura and legolas i'd like to see that

Author's Response: Thank you! I don\'t think there will be a wedding ceremony unless it\'s required in Rohan for some reason, but I\'ll think about it.

Glad you liked it. Thanks for the review.

Date: Jan 27 2007
Title: Chapter 23: Blood, Sweat and Tears Reviewer: elfenears Signed
this is good got home from college and there was a new chapter to read wooo

this was a really good chapter hope you are enjoying writing as much as i am reading which is alot!

Author's Response: Yes. Though sometimes the voices in my head are very insistent. That dream sequence has been with me for days and wouldn\'t let me go until I wrote it. I didn\'t like it, but I had to write it.

I hope college is as enjoyable for you as it was for me. Thanks for the review!

Title: Chapter 25: Maugor Reviewer: elfenears Signed

Thanks for the review.

Title: Chapter 31: An Eye for an Eye Socket Reviewer: elfenears Signed
really cool chapter
halbared's eye is really cool

keep up the good work
xxx abi

Author's Response: Thank you! I really enjoy fleshing out minor characters. I\'ve really missed the story this past week and I\'ll do my best to get the updates up faster, at least until I go on leave at the end of this month. But don\'t worry, I\'ll be thinking about it on the LONG flight home.

Thanks for the feedback!
