whoops! I forgot to leave a review on the way out!

I love this story! Please write more soon, as I think I might be becoming addicted to it. ( I read the whole thing in two afternoons)

I want to know how this turns out!

Keep it up,
NZ

Author's Response: I\'m very glad that you are loving the story. Well, that\'s a *good* kind of addition. :o) Goodness - two afternoons? Wow. I\'m currently moving, so it will be a while before I can update, but I\'ll keep going as soon as I can so you won\'t have to wait too long.

Summary: Just a short lullaby that somehow looked middle earth-y to me... I made it up lying in bed so don't flame me. XD I had a peaceful, nocturnal Minas Tirith in mind writing it. :)

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Nazgrrl Signed
I like this! You are certainly correct that it sounds like a ME lullaby.

Could I suggest the name " the world lies grey and wondrous," taken from the text?

It would seem less cheesy than making up an original name, and thus avoid off-putting readers.

Title: Chapter 1: Madness Reviewer: Nazgrrl Signed
Yes I have . . . I have a problem of reading and not reviewing . . . usually what I do is read the all of the story that is posted and then review, but I have been following this for several months now, and it has just escaped my mind.

Keep it up!

Author's Response: Thank you! I tend to be pretty skimpy on my reviews as well. Anyway, it\'s hard for me to find the words to express my enjoyment for a good story.

Summary: There are many diehard Tolkien fans that complain that either Peter Jackson's films destroyed their cherished images of Middle Earth or didn't capture the spirit of Middle Earth. My answer? It could have been a thousand times worse.

Yes! I like it alot. The two-to-three words per line makes a wonderful, surreal feeling, almost like a flash of understanding that fades quickly.

The short and choppy sentences are such an effective way to show us Shadowfax's feelings! I loved it! Oh, and by-the-by, how did the Orcs survive the fall of Sauron in the first place? That would be an interesting story.
Keep it up!

Author's Response: Yay, you finally um...did something! Great to see you. I don\'t know how they survived, but pretty much all authors have orcs all over the place post WR.

Title: Chapter 1: The Greatest Torment Reviewer: Nazgrrl Signed
As I have **Still** not read the Silmarillion, I cannot appreciate this as much as I should like.

However, I think you are a very talented writer, so keep up the good work!!
NZ/SMEE!


**Still** meaning that the book has disappeared under mysterious circumstances

Author's Response: Hi again, Nazgrrl!\r\n\r\nNo, I have not died. No, I am not ignoring you. Yes, I do appreciate your reviews. Alas, a great evil befell me. It had to do with my hard drive making this little \"kaput!\" noise and disappearing in a puff of shiny smoke. (Not literally, of course.) I\'m sorry I didn\'t answer before.Thank you for reviewing.\r\n\r\nI extend my condolences that you haven\'t gotten to read the Silmarillion yet. You have been deprived. (And I may be being a little melodramatic, but I\'m definitely *not* being sarcastic.) I\'ve lost my copy of the Silmarillion, too, and I suspect I\'ve put it in a very safe place where I can never lose it, and promptly forgot about it. This happens periodically. I love the stories in the Silmarillion. It\'s not the sort of book that I sit down and read from start to finish, but I read jump back and forth at different times, seeing how all the threads weave together. Tolkien was terrific at world-building. Of course, he spent 50 yrs. or so at it, so I\'m not surprised. I did my best here with Maedhros (and I\'m glad you seemed to like this), but I know that I am not ready to do the Silmarillion justice. There is so much depth there! You can read it and read it and still not get it all. Occasionally, I run across a fanfic I think does it justice, but rarely (I\'m afraid I have a *very* exacting standard).\r\n\r\nHere\'s hoping you still remember what this is about! :)\r\n~Still Anonymous

Unfortunately, I cannot enjoy the rhyming scheme nearly as much as I ought as I currently have the "john Wellington Wells" song by Gilbert stuck in my head. Anyways, I'm loving this!

Author's Response: I know, Gilbert and Sullivan are so terribly catchy . . . the whole time I was writing this I had the Mikado\'s song stuck in my head. Thanks for the reviews!
