That's a funny concept. Maybe you could try talking about what happens when Aragorn turns back to a person, if he ever does. . .

Untitled by PirateDork3 Rated: G [Reviews - 5]
Summary: [[These are just versions I tried out and I still like...even if they leave things unanswered and don't make sense. If you want to see the latest version, check out The Secret Daughter]] Still a work in progress, feel free to review, it would help me out a lot. Thanks.

The story is a spin off of Luthien's last days and what if she had a daughter, this is her story and how she returns to Middle Earth.

Hmmm. That was an interesting story.

I noticed about five different sections that could be improved. While there was no incorrect grammar, there were a few areas that could be improved.

There was a sentence, " Sons of Elrond are skilled healers." It would make more sense to say The sons of Elrond are skilled healers. There were several other examples of the same variety.

Another thing I noticed was the first sentence started "Yang elf, mostly elfling . . ." when it should be The young elf.

I really enjoyed this short, so . . .

Keep up the Good Work!!

You have a very well written essay. While I do not share your infatuation with Orlando Bloom/ Bloom's characters, I do agree that Middle Earth is one of the best ways to escape the hum-drum affairs of Mild Earth.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I escape to Middle Earth whenever possible. Real life is so dull and it makes me restless.

Summary: Pocosin the scout and some of his mates are bivouacked on the Field of Cormallen on a crisp mid-autumn night. Long after his friends have fallen asleep, the fledgling ranger pensively gazes upon a cloudless sky as a crescent moon slowly sinks behind the distant Ered Nimrais. After a hasty breakfast, he buys a sheet of cheap paper from a peddler and eagerly dips his quill.

That's pretty good!

Usually, I find the obvious rhyming distracting and detracting, but this time, it nicely complements the idea of the poem.

NZ

Author's Response: At the time I wrote it, the rhyming seemed a bit self-conscious, but then I don\'t consider myself a professional poet. Nevertheless, the poem has already been published in a major newspaper and a local magazine, so it can\'t be that bad.

A response to Ria's review:

Orion is :
Menelvagor
Menelmacar
Telumehtar

It just depends on what language you are using when referencing the constellation.

Also, I think that it would be rather hard to find Elvish equivalents of our major constellations that fit into the rhyming, so I disregarded that part of the poem.

Happy reading!
SMEE

Author's Response: Actually, I thought about using Elvish equivalents to some of the constellations, but then I realized that Pocosin would be writing this in Westron, which would appear as English to us.

This is pretty good, but I think that you've got a mild case of Mary-Sueism on your hands.

It just seems a bit hard to believe that, with a wound of the ugliness you've described, the heroine could be up and walking about a day after being found with a horrible, probably almost infected wound, magic paste or no.

Other than that, you have a great idea for a story.

NZ

P.S. One way to combat the Sueism is to make some fault in your character: impatience, wicked gossip, etc.

I highly suggest you read the books.

I read part of your "the lies before the truth" and decided to weep for canon.

Edro i phairf a hain isto!

The books are the best way to write accurate fan fiction.

An interesting way to come up with a name.

Nazgrrl

Author's Response: You\'ve given me an idea and i thank you for it. I know you\'re a true Tolkien fan and i admire that but the way i write my fanfiction is my way. My belief about writing fanfic is that you should make the world your own, tkae the world and mold it to what you would like. I don\'t really like canon but i try to stay as true to the story as possible. I\'m sorry if i sound a little angry but that\'s jsut the way the words came out, i\'m not actually angry. I know i need to read TTT and ROTK but i just can\'t get into them as much as i did with FOTR. Could i have a translation of the elvish please?? I\'m not that good with elvish . . . not translating it at least. Thanks for reviewing - Li

Reviewer: Nazgrrl Signed
Date: 20/01/08 Title: Chapter 1: What's In A Name?

No offense taken. The first elvish translation is "Read the books and learn them." The Second is " I can say whatever I want and you can't understand me." 8-)
I understand your view on writing the world, but I have to strongly disagree with you.

If you have read my bio, you will realize that I am a member of the canon police, and don't like uncanon stories.

Not saying that I won't read them, they just have to be very realistic to sell the story to me.

Keep on writing!
NZ/SMEE

Author's Response: Well, each to their own i guess, i just hope that this will not sabotage, could you say, our not exactly a relationship but something of a muchness. I shall keep on writing and hannon le for the encouragement - Li
