29 year old.
I discovered Tolkien when I was 17. The Silmarillion was my first encounter with this wonderful world.
Then I had to read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. W O W!!
My favorite story is that of Beren and Luthien and also the The Children of Hurin.
Favorite Characters: Beren, Tuor and Turin.
Favorite Villains: Melkor and Smaug.
Who is that man? Tolkien or Gandalf?
Very nice poem... please continue with more
Author's Response: Aaah, that is the mystery of the man! thank you for reviewing!
You have a gift for poetry... The way you describe the characters and their mood is poetical, almost a lyrical.
Keep it up!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, i absolutley love writing so comments like this is really really appreciated! thank you!
Wow, for poetry you do have a lyrical approach to it... and I could almost feel the wind and hear the bees.
You are expressive and paint a vivid image that sticks to the reader.
The end was appropiate with the whole of the composition.
Keep it up!!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing, Scribe. It means a lot to me. I managed to just do that last night. It was magical when I just sat at my computer and the words just flowed out. I added a chapter, so please read (and review).
Is this Legolas speaking?
Very good work... and nice use of the elvish tongue.
I like the feel of closeness between the reader and the speaker.
Author's Response: Yes, Legolas is speaking. And I feel really close to Legolas. I imagine that if I ever met him, that we'd be the best of friends. Hey, I said that I thought you were Legolas and look where we are now! Thanks for reading. (I knew to check reviews because I'm online right now and I saw you were logged in.) Thanks mellon-nin!
L O L
Yep, I can also hear his cries of horror....
Author's Response: ditto! :) Sarah 50 bottles of Miruvor....etc!
LOL That was hilarious and very good written.
You have a talent for this comedic stuff... keep it up
This fits perfectly with what is happening in the Story.
I like the way you describe the mood of the characters and the overall feeling of the situation.
KEEP IT UP!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the encouraging review. It's means so much to hear that you're enjoying this. I'm posting the next chapter tomorrow... *looks at clock* err... today sometime. Blessings! ~Ila
You research for this story? Props to you... it reflects on your writing devotion.
Enjoyed this chapter and wonder what will Aslan do...
(just one thing though... Aslan is the son of the Emperor-beyond-the-Sea, whom I believe to be Eru in Tolkien's Ea. Who is Aslan then? I know I am jumping ahead..)
Author's Response: Thanks! This story meant a lot to me - especially as it progressed - and I tried to put a lot of time into it. I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter! And your question will be answered in chapter six. :) Thank you so much for the review! ~Ila
Wow... this idea is very original.
Please, keep posting.
So Jadis was a Maiar.
Author's Response: Hey... glad you like it. I'll keep posting every other day or so. Thanks for the review! ~Ila
Once again, you keep the reader's attention.
And yes... it would be excellent to bring Aragorn into the Prince Caspian story.
Blessings for you!
Author's Response: *cheers* Yay! I'm thrilled you think Aragorn would be a good choice! I've never wrote him before, and I think he'll be fun. :D Anyway, thanks so much for the review! Blessings! ~Ila
Wow... that was beautiful and I like the bit where Aslan says, "That is the name of My Father!" It reflects on the loving obedience that the LION has for his FATHER.
Just one thing... and I sincerely hope that you take no offense by it, Why put Aslan on the same level as Eru/Emperor when others and himself acknowledge he is but the Son, high in power and authority but subject to the One?
Anyways... keep it up for I truly like it.
Author's Response: I put Aslan on the same lever as His Father because He and His Father are one entity. Jesus is God; thus, Aslan is Eru. I'm not sure if you're a Christian or not, but as I said in the end chapter notes, I'm basing that bit of information on the Bible. And I definitely do not take offense. Feel free to critique and ask any questions you like. :) Thanks so much for the review! You don't know how much it encourages me to hear from you! Blessings! ~Ila I John 5:7
Dear Ila: That was just beautiful... and the way that you tie Legolas into the story is just genius
KEEP IT UP!!
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it! That was a tricky chapter to write, and I'm glad it turned out. Thanks for the review! Blessings! ~Ila
One more reason for putting you and this story in my favorite list.
Author's Response: aw... thanks! I've really appreciated hearing from you. You've made this experience worth every single frustrating mental block. ;) Thank you so much! ~Ila
as for point number one, I do not think that abortion is NEVER an option... if you cannot or do not want to support the child, then give it up for adoption as there are many couples wanting a child.
The other three points are just very good and I agree with them too.
I bet that they do exist... and that they are as alive as we are right now.
Great work... it expresses what many of us hope for
Author's Response: I'm glad I can put into words what others hope. It makes me feel really good. :))
you have a nice premise set up at the beginning... keep it up for I am intrigued
Author's Response: Wow. thank you. Still doin chapter five, keep in touch. :)
Very good idea... the gathering of the Company BEFORE they went after Smaug.
Will you post more? Please, do so.
Author's Response: I don't think I'll extend this fic any further, but I would like to write more about the dwarves. I've just got to finish my Discworld project first!
Finally, someone who writes a beautiful piece dedicated to the One.
Beautiful!! Keep it up
Author's Response: Thanks for your kind review. I'm glad you liked my piece.
Wow... that was well researched... its an essay but told in readable form for those of us that love the relation between Arda and our own world
Author's Response: It was gasp readable? Yay! The research was interesting; ever since Ive been much more intimate with my HoME and Silm. Thanks!
Though I dont celebrate Christmas, I find it beautiful that you dedicated time to translate it into the Elven tongue...
and that is truly moving!
Author's Response: Well . . . I didn't do it personally. I'm trying to find out who wrote it so I can give them the credit. Fixing things now. It's really good to hear from you!
