Author's Response: Happy Birthday! I\'m a cancer too. I\'ll be 37 on July 15th. I\'m sorry it took me so long to post 47, it was ready a week ago, but I couldn\'t think of a title. Then I realized I had two copies of it and I posted the wrong one. You may want to re-read it, just in case you read the wrong one.
Thanks for the review, and again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it. We\'ll definitely be seeing more of Taeniôn, he\'s too much fun to leave in the wings. I hope Legolas isn\'t weirded out by the stuff downstairs, but somwhow I think he\'ll understand. After all, he\'s got a bit of goth in him, too.
Thanks for the review.
keep up the good work
of to work so sorry about the short review
Author's Response: Thank you. I appreciate you taking time to review, even when you\'re in a hurry. There will be some surprises for Elaura coming. She may have some new talents, but luckily she can\'t see the future.
Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: I don\'t know why, but Thranduil has always been one of my favorite characters . . . maybe I have a bit of an Electra Complex. He\'s got all of Legolas\' strength and beauty and a dark, serious streak that just begs to be investigated. I never pictured him as mean, just shrewd.
Thanks for the review, glad you liked the chapter!
by the way i hope you had a nice bd beause i forgot to put that in my last review.
one last thing, you had me laughing all day at the thought of a hundred caffinated dwarves running about, pity we dont have a few of those at work things would get done alot faster though gimli doesnt seem fond of horses so i dont know
anyway thanks for writing and i eagerly await the next update
Author's Response: Gimli would just need a horse that\'s a little shorter so he wouldn\'t have to ask for help getting into the saddle.
I did have a nice birthday. Just sat at home and wrote; exactly what I wanted to do.
I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the story. Early on one of the most common suggestions I got was to add more detail and set the scenes better. I listened. Thanks for mentioning the \"done concept\" thing. I know some of my major plot themes have been done over and over, but I like to think nothing can truly be original except the way you present it. It really frees your mind when you aren\'t always trying NOT to do something or other (another thing my reviewers helped me learn).
Thanks for the review.
also i want to look after thranduil, he is wonderful in this. thanks for writing and i cannot wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: My ideas come from the voices in my head and they always surprise me. Glad you are still enjoying it. You can look after Thranduil all you want, I\'ve got a great pic of him and Legolas.
Thanks for the review, hope you like the next chapter.
Author's Response: She did get a little soft after her accident, but she\'s worrking on it. The next two chapters promise to be exciting. Hope you like them.
Thanks for the review.
i just got bck from london, the stage show was amazing, go to www.lotr.com to see some of the clips if you like but interestingly legolas has dark hair in the show so i guess they took the other view. thanks for writing update again soon
Author's Response: I\'m so jealous! I can\'t see how you could force the whole story into one play, but I\'d love to see how they did it. I\'ll check out that site. Thanks for the review, hope you like the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you. The babies will be born in Eryn Lasgalen. Elaura and Legolas will go with the others to escort Theoden\'s body back to Rohan and they will go with Gimli to see the Glittering Caves. The three of them will part from the rest of the company at Fangorn Forest and find their own way back to Thranduil\'s palace. That\'s the plan anyway. I never really know for sure. Glad you are enjoying the story, thanks for the review!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. It was more fun to write than the next one. SHe doesn\'t meet Saruman again yet, but she does get to talk to an old \'friend\'. Hope you like it.
Thanks for the feedback!
i actually feel sorry for melkor at this point the teletubbies always freaked me out for some reason. well thanks for writing i have to go now to a scarecrow festival, wonderful english madness lol
hope you update again soon
Author's Response: It is. Teletubbies are a guilty little secret of mine; that and Bear in the Big Blue House. I guess they are designed to be sweet and soothing and it works on me.
Okinawa is beautiful and very interesting. I know you said you had a good time at the festival, I would have loved to see the Jack Sparrow one, myself. Johnny Depp is another of my guilty pleasures.
Sorry I haven\'t updated in a while; it\'s been a crazy week here. I\'m sure it\'ll calm down soon. It had better, because work is burning me out. Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: I think CHapter 62 is ready. I may post it before proofreading, just to get it out there, but you\'ll have to forgive the mistakes. I have to go to work soon and I don\'t want to put it off.
Glad you liked 61, I really appreciate the fact you are still reading and reviewing!
thanks for writing even though you said you have been busy with work it is most deffinatly appreciated and enjoyed.
Thank you, thank you. I'm just about ready to post the next chapter.
Thanks for the feedback!
Author's Response: Goodness I\'ve really gotten behind in my responses. I\'m so sorry. I finally got another two chapters up. I\'m glad you enjoyed this one.\r\nThanks for the review!
thanks for writing, very much appreciated.
ps greetings from scotland, thats where i currently am, so virtual haggis for all lol.
Author's Response: Those robes get better and better, too. Hope you\'re having a good time in Scotland. I\'ve always wanted to visit. Take care and thank you for taking the time to review even when you\'re out and about!
Author's Response: I wish Elaura had been able to stand by and hear what it was they were arguing about. Maybe Gandalf will fill her in sometime. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for reviewing!
Author's Response: Even when I don\'t have time they hound me until i make time . . . the characters, I mean. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m enjoying writing it, too. As always, I\'m learning a lot about the characters as we go along. I\'m glad you enjoy the details, it makes for a longer story, but if you like it, who am I to argue. If I were to publish (which obviously I couldn\'t without permission from the Tolkien estate), I would probably have to break it down into smaller books, but since this is the internet, I\'m happy with it the way things are.
\r\nThanks again for the review!
Author's Response: Howdy! Thanks for waiting. I\'m sorry it took so long, I had over a hundred pages to sort out, proof, and edit. I appreciate you staying with the story. I can\'t say what is more fun, writing it or reading the responses from you and aelfwine. I\'m glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the review.
i loved the way you discribed shelob, so full of hate and rage very scary and so detailed you hardly leave a thing out.
the cave and gimli also wonderful nice to see gimli enjoying his gems so much.
must go my tutor may notice i will read next chapter at home. ick back to business lesson
thanks for writing and much love keep up the brilliant work
Author's Response: Naughty, naughty! I can only imagine what Erestor\'s lessons with Elladan and Elrohir would have been like had they had computers and internet!
\r\nI have to give credit for that bit of detail to my step-dad. He\'s about the only person on the planet who has never read Tolkien, so when I sent him the draft, he said he really wasn\'t getting a feel for her, especially not her size. I re-wrote it with more detail and got his seal of approval.
\r\nKeep up with your studies. College didn\'t give me much more than a piece of paper with a seal, but I got a wonderful understanding of people in general just from watching and listening. Glad you are still enjoying the story. Thanks for the review!
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!
