Summary: After a young Eldarion poses a strange question, his parents and friends try to explain some of the Facts of Life to the five-year-old, and learn that sometimes you can over-think things. Rated because of discussion of sexuality, but at the level of a five-year-old, so if you pick up on anything it's your own fault for having a dirty mind! ;)

This is such an incredible, well written work. Galadriel's pain is so tangible, so powerful, it truly reached to me. How she describes her daughter is beautiful as well. We are used to see her cold and distant but here, you manage to let us see into her heart and still, you let her remain Galadriel. Let me tell you this is my first review here and I registered just to be able to let you know how much I loved your story. Thank you for writing it.

Summary: When Pippin gets inquisitive during a rest break, Legolas finds himself answering many of the questions that have long plagued his own mind. For immortality is not only a blessing, but also a curse in many ways. One-shot.

Legolas' feelings are believable and very touching. I could feel and understand his pain. Also, the explanation of why Elves speak in riddles is clever. A very enjoyable lecture.

Summary: HP crossover, with Galadriel at the center of the action. Galadriel is a young witch who has transferred from Beauxbatons to Hogwarts in her fifth year to be closer to her parents. This story mixes Galadriel into a whole new world, the one she knew in her past life. Her experiences at Hogwarts shape her forever.

I'm sorry but I don't see enough character development here. I know these might be you first chapters but we, the readers, should feel already comfortable and related enough with this reincarnated, adolescent Galadriel of yours, but we are not. We see no traces of her character or personality, nothing that might indicate us that this is indeed, Artanis Nerwen, other than her name.

an why would Draco make acquaintances with a Ravenclaw? I can't see his motivations. Also, it is uncommon for a Ravenclaw to have potions classes along with Gryffindors and Slitherings,

We can experience Galadriel's release of her burdens through this fic, as well as how difficult it was for her to remain always in control, always guarded. You allow us to feel said burdens in your words, and Celeborn's feelings for her are portrayed subtle yet intense. Great work. I really enjoyed it.

Author's Response: thanks so much!

This brought many hilarious images to my mind! Galadriel and Celeborn fainting and Faramir chasing the alarm clock were great!

And the Dark Lord Laughed at Last! LoL!

Author's Response: I\'m so happy you found it hilarious! Yeah, Faramir chasing the alarm clock was a fave of mine too; this was really fun to write! Thanks for the review! ~Mel

Éowyn's anguish is so palpable! As well as Faramir's love and patience. And you said so much with so few words... Indeed a very well written fanfic.

I find a bit hard to believe Galadriel would go ahead, even with Celeborn's "permission" but I can live with it, given the circumstances of perhaps he not traveling to Valinor (even if we know he does in the end). This story is sensual yet tasteful and very well written. Their journey through the ice and their problems seem realistic. I enjoyed reading it

Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, this one was a little weird. It was written for a week long challenge, where that particular day was to write something where two characters with names beginning with the first letter and weren\'t a canon pairing were placed together - and I was determined not to do slash for it. Being a big Galadriel/Celeborn fan, it was hard for me to believe at the end, lol! But, it was fun to stretch the imagination... Glad you enjoyed it!
