loved it...its an absolute hilarity!cant wait for it to reach the end. u gotta update real fast. this is one of my faves!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing and I am glad you are enjoying it. I will try and update soon. I have an outline for the next chapter so it is just a case of writing it.
After the end of the Third Age many thought that evil had been defeated forever from Middle-earth.Yet in the darkness of secrecy Sauron begot a son with one of the Eldar, one called Elenion Caunardhon, that ever sought to avenge the overthrow of his father.
As the days of Arda near their end and the situation worsens in our world, a young Tolkien fan is allowed by the Valar to be brought to Middle-earth and be part of a conflict to save Arda from destruction at the hand of Sauron's Son... and perhaps his own world...
This story covers a timeline that leads up to and includes the Dagor Dagorath...
Nice story. For most part, I can't stand first person fics but this one is absolutely amazing. Its very intersting.
You do have some typos and grammatical mistakes but I can understand that. English is my second language too.
Anyways,this is great story.
Author's Response: Thank you for your review! I have to improve on the typos. Do you feel the story progressing?
Nice chapter. The bank administrator is Radagast? That was one unexpected twist, although very interesting.
I do feel that the story is progressing. And as for the typos, get yourself a beta-reader. A beta will edit your story and remove the typos.
Keep writing ~Thredith
Author's Response: Thank you for your sincerity. I will get a beta reader for the next chapter. Thank you again for your reviews!!
And who is this mysterious girl? Annie Jo? I hope it is although I have a strong feeling that it is her.
And i didn't find any typos this time.
Anyways, rambling aside, the story is progressing well.
Keep writing ~Thredith
Author's Response: Thank you again for your review! I am loving writing this story.
Legolas and Balian in one fic*dreamy sigh*. WOW!!!
I got addicted to it the moment i started reading it and completely neglected my biology homework but I have absolutely no regrets!
I'm going to add you and the story to my favorites.
Author's Response: Thanks very much for the review. I will definitely keep writing. I like having Legolas and Balian in one story too ;)
Personally, I like Childminder of Rohan more than intoxicated Knight!!!
Author's Response: Well, I sort of thought he\'s been too perfect lately. Balian\'s not that much of an angel so here\'s a not so brilliant side of him.
Lovely chapter. I'm really looking forward to the next instalment.
YAY!!! I wrote the 100th review!!! *breaks down with happiness*
Author's Response: Thanks. I should be posting the next instalment up here soon but if you really want to read it right now, you can find it on FF-net. Just search for penname \'Telcontar Rulz\'.
I started on Chance Encounter II on ff.net, which is also very interesting.
I hope you update it soon. And I also ended up joining it as Mithranduilas.
Author's Response: Thanks. I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the sequel. I\'ll be updating this weekend. See you then.
luved yer story.......nd aragorn's moping over his hair was pretty funny...keep writing more....
Author's Response: No idea when the next episode will be posted...got a couple of ideas, but I\'ve got exams fighting with other fics, so I haven\'t really got much time to myself. Thanks for the review!
Short and sweet. I just hope it is longer!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review! There is another chapter. This story is the sequel to \'War is Hell\', so if you want to check that one out, that would be cool. It might explain what is going on in this story. Thanks again! ~God bless
That is one creative dream. It actually makes a good one-off.
Anyway, I had this really weird dream a few months back. So here goes nothing:
For some reason, Minas Tirith was situated in a deep valley, surrounded by mountains. Quite like Gondolin actually. Aragorn, in his infinite wisdom, had built a huge glass tower with plenty of long, thin glass tubes, all very prettily carved. On top of that was a structure, which looked like IgM (that’s immunoglobin, an antibody. I must have been overdosing on biology).
I don't remember what happened but somehow, Eldarion was hanging upside-down from one of the spokes of IgM. I was standing in a crowd and watching the spectacle. Maedhros and Maglor were standing beside me and pointing and laughing at Eldarion.
After that, I saw that Elladan and Elrohir were standing near this tower and cursing Eldarion for getting stuck in such situations. Legolas went over and told them that as his uncles, they had to save him. They were disgusted with this proposition but went anyway.
Soon, I found myself inside this tower, which looked like Orthanc from the inside, with Aragorn, Legolas, Elladan and Elrohir. They climbed over and saved Eldarion. Then, the tower started breaking. We spent ages arguing inside on how to get out until finally my school's prissiest prefect came and threw us out of the door.
The tower came crashing down after that and we were all giggling and laughing like imbeciles, feeling very proud of ourselves. After that, we were going to go and have a cup of tea with a spot of milk (I remember that exact phrase from my dream). We were on the way to Hobbiton when mum woke me. That was the end.
It's pretty daft, I know.
I do agree with you, LoTR is not Tolkien's greatest work. I personally prefer the Silmarillion, even though it is a lot more complex. But then again, its beauty lies in its complexity.
I loved this one!!!!!!!
1)I greet everyone in Elvish
2)Call THE HOBBIT ,THERE AND BACK AGAIN
3)Ask Valar and ERU to help me out!!!!
4)I scribble my name in Cirth and Tengwar all over my school books [and desks!!]
5)I can qoute the entire family tree of the high elves in a matter of minutes in the correct order
6)I recite all the dialogues of the movies everytime i see them
In fact, i do a lot of the things you've listed!!!
Its so completely accurate!!!!
Tis on'e going on my favorites! :p
Author's Response: Lol... wow thanks... it makes me feel better to know I\'m not the only one who writes my name in Sindarin all over everything... =P
It shows the power of simplicity of writing and the complexity of thoughts and feelings.
Author's Response: Thanks! That gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I\'m glad you liked it! ~Mel
Is there another chapter to it?
I hope there is, though.
I love the way you write, Gift Of Orome was very well written and I'm glad that it was a finalist at Mithril awards.
Keep writing ~Thredith
Author's Response: Mae govannen, Thredith. Yes, there are four more chapters and an epilogue. Thank you, I\'m glad you liked A Gift From Oromë. :) No fear, I\'ve no intention of ceasing to write. I\'ve been writing fanfiction for about six years now. (Wow, has it really been that long?!) I\'ve branched out into original fiction so I don\'t write as much fanfiction, but I still do occasionally. \"An Elf\'s Best Friend\" was my second fanfiction story, so it\'s pretty old. I still kind of like it, though. Asfaloth\'s a lot of fun. Thank you for the review! Still Anonymous
A nice chapter, as always.
I really enjoy Asfaloth being naughty.
Do love animals a lot? I'm asking only because 3 of your 4 stories concern animals. Personally, I love animals and thats partly why I enjoy your stories so much.
Author's Response: Hi, Thredith! Thank you! :) Yes, Asfaloth\'s a lot of fun when he\'s misbehaving! Well, I *could* say I love animals. However, I\'m not sure that would really cover it. ;) Yes, I do. Anything furry (barring spiders, I don\'t count them), and some things that aren\'t. Horses are my favorite and dogs are a close second. It is unfortunate that I have neither, but I content myself fairly well with lots of cats and goats who I spoil mercilessly. :D Some of my inspiration for Asfaloth comes from them. They\'re all misbehaving tyrants who like to rule my life. ;) Not that I mind. Still Anonymous
Funny little chapter.
I like horses too. I have a dog, a Dobermann, but she's paralysed now. But honestly, having goats and cats(I love them too) must be fun!!!
Anyways, I love Asfaloth, Glorfindel and Elrohir. And I also LOVE this story!!
Author's Response: Hi, Thredith! Yes, the cats and goats are fun, especially the babies (though the bottle-feeding in the middle of the night is not). I love them all. We just got a buck kid and he has to be bottle-fed, but he\'s worth it. He\'s very sweet. I used to prefer Shadowfax to Asfaloth, but now that I\'ve written about him so much, I\'ve gotten kind of attached. And I thought it simply wasn\'t *fair* that Glorfindel and Elrohir were left out of the movies. A travesty, I say! ;) And thank you. I know it\'s really great when I run across I like a lot, and I\'m glad you love this one! ~ Still Anonymous
Asfaloth the Intellectual...hmmm
I think that it was a pity that Glorfindel and the twins were left out of the movie, they are more interesting than Arwen any day!!!
Oh, and where do you publish your original fiction?
I would love to read it.
Author's Response: Well, of *course* he\'s Asfaloth the Intellectual! ;) *Everyone* knows how smart he is! It is so patently obvious that one cannot walk by him without realizing that here stands one of the greatest horses to ever grace Arda with his magnificent presence (though he\'s sure he *is* the greatest, he hasn\'t met all the others, and so does not lay claim to that title yet). Uh, erm, yes . . . anyway . . . ;) I do think Glorfindel and the twins are far more interesting than Arwen, but I also think Arwen has a lot of unrealized potential. Movie-Arwen and Fanon-Arwen give her short-shrift. I\'m sorry, but I don\'t have any published original fiction . . . yet. ::big grin:: There\'s none published *online,* but I\'ve finished a short story about a six-year-old girl and her guardian dragon that I\'m going to try to get published. As in, *really* published. In \"real life.\" Well, actually, my *father\'s* going to try to get it published because I still live at home and therefore dump all such jobs on him. Heh heh. To view more of my work, follow the link in my profile. Fanfiction solely, alas, but better than nothing, I hope. :) ~Still Anonymous
Cliched, but what the heck...nice chapter and an excellent story. I do wonder if Gorfy kept the knife in the end. Or if Elrohir could use his bow again.And I would love to have one of Noladar's foals because i love horses and i don't have a pet anymore, we had to put my dog to sleep.
Oh, and did you manage to get your story published?
I would have reviewed sooner but I don't have Internet anymore, so practically no net access.
Namarie, and i hope there's another story in the offing!
Author's Response: Hello again, Thredith!\r\n\r\nCliched, yes, I suppose so. I was young and didn\'t know better! ;) Well, that\'s my story. \r\n\r\nI rather think \"Gorfy\" would keep the knife, despite the damage. I can imagine him in Valinor, showing the knife to a young elf who had never left and telling him tales of the mortal realm and the magnificent horse he had when he was there, Asfaloth . . . and in the background there is the neighing of Asfaloth\'s offspring and the shouting of angry elves. I think Elrohir would get a new bow, though. I doubt he\'d ever see his old one again, or, if he did, that it would be worth salvaging due to water damage.\r\n\r\nI\'d love to have one of Noladar\'s foals, too, but that\'s just because I\'m horse crazy (you may have guessed) and *any* horse will do. The fact that they\'re beautiful and intelligent are added bonuses (though the behavior could prove inconvenient). ;)\r\n\r\nI\'m sorry about your dog. I\'ve lost animal friends and I know it hurts when that happens. I think it\'s worse if you just have one pet to lavish affection on (though that is a circumstance I have never personally experienced). We recently lost three adult goats, all of them prematurely, for varying reasons. One kid died at birth, but I wasn\'t attached to her yet. On the up side, we have two new kids we\'re keeping and that helps. They\'re sweet and cute and I love them. :)\r\n\r\nNo, my story\'s not published. We\'ve been very busy here (long story), and I haven\'t actually tried yet. Even after I try, from everything I hear, publishing is a long and laborious process. Still, I hold out some slight hope of eventual success. ;)\r\n\r\nNo Internet! Horrors! ;) I\'m only half kidding, too. It\'s okay about the timing. I\'m not exactly the World\'s Promptest Person, myself. This, you may have noticed. ;) I might take the award for World\'s Worst Procrastinator, though.\r\n\r\nHmm, well, I\'m not sure about fanfiction, but you never know. I\'m currently working on the sequel to my original fiction story. It\'s going to be novel-length and I\'m a slow writer, so this may take a while. However, I plan to post a short story or two that I\'ve already written, and you never know what plotbunnies will jump out of the screen and sink their fangs in me. :) I might post a sequel to \"An Elf\'s Best Friend.\" It was the first fanfic I ever wrote \"Flight to the Ford: Asfaloth\'s Tale.\" However, since it was my first story, every time I look at it I cringe and want to hide under the desk from sheer embarrassment. My writing skill was abysmal. Anyway, my point was, yes, probably more writing from me, though *when* I cannot say.\r\n\r\nThank you for your reviews. I appreciated them greatly and was always glad to see them. :)\r\n\r\nFarewell wherever you fare!\r\n\r\n~Still Anonymous
Nice sory. Short and sweet.
It's amazng how one can think up stories at the drop of a coin, isn't it?
Author's Response: Yeah, i know what you mean. The bunnies could be sweet, once you feeding them. Hannon-le, for your comments mellon-nin, i\'m glad that you enjoyed of it. *Hugs and Kisses* Have a great day/night and keep smiling, Sivan Shemesh
