Summary: Hoo boy. The residents of Middle-earth decide that if they want realistic fanfic written about them, they'll have to teach the authors themselves. But things do not go exactly according to plan.

Title: Chapter 64: Epilogue Reviewer: ravenfeather42 Signed
awww hehe.. you know, I tried reading this long ago when I was but a mere little fanlet who could barely remember Frodo and Aragorn's name and referred to Boromir as "that guy who died". Needless to say I didn't get it, but now that I'm a big girl who actually can appreciate all the wonders of the nine and only nine this has been a great and fantastic romp!

sooo... has this one been abandoned? it's really good so if it has been abandoned it's a shame

Author's Response: No, not abandoned, just interrupted by real life. I have up to Chap 29 but this site went down a couple times and I\'ve gotten tired of updating it here. If you\'re still interested you can find it on or on my livejournal; I will have the final two chapters here it the next couple of weeks. Thanks so much for the lovely feedback! **hugs**

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 32: Awakenings Reviewer: ravenfeather42 Signed
So! I finally figured out WHY I couldn't make the review system work... you have to have an account and be signed in. i feel like an idiot. Anyway great work as usual, particularly at the end, quite moving. I do have a bit of constructive criticism, though. While this is a great work that has gone so far beyond the standard "girl dropped into M.E." plot line, the style of the story has changed a lot. I mean I perfectly understand that as you write more you mature and your style changes and I also understand that you are trying to contrast the changes in Elaura from the creature of the night she was initially to the beloved woman she is now. Somehow, though, this is is not as much fun as it once was and has delved into a... I'm not sure how to describe it, I guess it has become dark as opposed to the lighthearted story it once was. Yeah, I completely understand that the subject matter is significantly more depressing being post-war with death and destruction surrounding, yet again you have the redemption of Lord Maglor and the babies and other good things going too. I'm thinking that the reason that the story has been feeling this way is because of the lack of significant forward motion. Not that it's become stagnant, but you're focusing so much on the little sub-plots and side shoots that the whole plot isn't moving: it's just been stuck in the falling action. I feel terrible saying this because I know that personally I could never pull something this massive off and I feel like a bigot telling you how to write it. But at the same time, I realize that this is a growing experience for us all and I know that I would appreciate someone telling me how they are reacting to my writing, particularly if they are losing interest. Please don't feel that I am slighting you in any way, particularly not after all the generosity you have shown me. I just thought I would tell you. Lol, maybe this would make a better e-mail than a review!

Author's Response: I don\'t mind constructive criticism at all. The only problem with the review process is that my reply is the last word. We can\'t actually have a discussion because you can\'t reply to my reply.

I appreciate you taking the time to write such a detailed review. Reviews are always welcome and I\'ll take your points into consideration.

Thanks again!
