Reviews by Karlmir Stonewain
Summary: All the Fellowship and a few other close friends have gathered in the Shire to celebrate little Elanor's birthday. Much fun and drinking at the Green Dragon ensues. Both Frodo and Arwen are having difficulties accepting the choices that they made. Angst in some places; Humor in others! Ever so slightly AU in places.

Title: Chapter 1: Sun Star Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
I found this to be a most charming tale, very well written. The roasted parsnip pie is probably good when eaten hot with butter, or cold with whipped cream.

Author's Response: Karlmir!\r\n\r\n I\'m so happy that you liked it! There is more to the story that I will be posting soon. I had a great deal of fun dreaming up recipes that sounded delicious and rather Hobbit-like! The roast parsnip pie with whipped cream! I hadn\'t thought of that, but it does sound good! Hmmm! Thanks for reading!! \r\n\r\nY.

Child of Storms by Anwyn Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 27]
Summary: Twenty and five years have passed since the Great Battle on which the fate of Middle Earth teetered in delicate balance. Much of the darkness has now been purged from the lands which grow green and fertile once more.

Far into the rolling lands of the North a child was born into this time of blossoming peace, to grow as homes are once again rebuilt.

This is the first story of my original character, Anwyn which I am putting together piece by piece, Its already finished but now I am bringing it together.

Please note that this story was written cooperatively with xFanarix whose fanfic is also posted on this site.

Excellent! I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you very much!\r\n\r\nMuch of the story is already written but its more a matter of going back and changing any facts and making sure that it all worksm thanks again!

Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 13: Into the night Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
This is getting exciting!
"You great twit!" Armelle is very interesting.

Author's Response: Thank you! I hope to have more of it up really soon, the story itself is complete just written elsewhere and to bring it\r\nonto here I have to make some formatting changes as well as change any little minute details.\r\nLOL, yes, Armelle is rather intresting but the characters that are a touch \"unstable\" are always fun to write ;)

Title: Chapter 36: Chapter 37: Held by bonds of love Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
I'm really enjoying this. Your story is complicated without being tedious.

Author's Response: Thank you very, very much! That is such a huge relief to hear, I do my best to keep things going and moving and growing, I wrote the section of the story that is going up now nearly a year ago now and then wrote my part of Fanari’s “Dark Empire” story and am now also chipping away at the story that follows that as well so that pretty much at any given point I am working away at *something* its just in a different time frame or story so I have to admit that putting this up I am going back and reading stuff because even I had forgotten some of the smaller details and I have removed small things too just so that the story flows abit better and even writing an entirely new chapter if I feel the story needs it, and while I like writing more complex plots I don’t try to make them too complex because if I end up confusing myself I can’t expect the reader to follow, lol. Thank you again, your kind words are very much appreciated :)

Title: Chapter 63: Chapter 63: Troubling Confessions Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
Eldarion certainly has some interesting problems with women. I'm enjoying your joint effort with xFanarix on this story.

Author's Response: lol, to be honest with you I have to date not met a single young man who *didn\'t* have an intresting problem or another\r\nwith women, So Son of Elessar or not it seemed strange to write Eldarion any other way ;) Though he does grow older\r\nin Fanari\'s Dark Empire series which carries on longer (naturally, as her characters are elven) than Anwyn\'s story but yes\r\nits kind of a tricky thing that Anwyn should just happen to be his half sister, an honest mistake all considered! Though\r\nthe attraction was something that slowly came on as the story developed. Thank you very much! I am glad you are enjoying it\r\nIts now become MUCH longer than I ever thought it would but it is in truth several shorter stories which I am putting together\r\nfor this bigger story, I could have in theory made them all smaller stories but this made more sense. Thanks for the review, It means alot! :)

Title: Chapter 74: Chapter 74: "Come back to me" Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
I've been rather busy this past summer and haven't had much time for reading anything but the shorter fics on this site. I'm finally getting back to yours, which I find to be very well written. I've had to go over some of the previous chapters again to refresh my memory. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Hey there! Oh, not to worry, I can definately apprechiate how busy Summer get's as I have been working like a mad woman all summer long and then adding bit's and pieces of this story as I go along as I have been tweaking it very slightly as I go along to make thing's better fit since I have a better idea of where the story is going in the long run as I do feel like I have been dragging this out, not intentionally but it is a very long story but it is slowly reaching it's conclusion, though this is just the first story and Anwyn's story continues into some of Fanari's work as the stories were intertwined for a time and then there will be a nother story I will start when I finish that pick's up after those that will explore Anwyn's parentage abit more *Grins* Thank you very much for your kind words, as always they are very much apprechiated! :)

Could this have something to do with Eowyn's marriage to Faramir? She is now wearing the diamond bracelets and necklace befitting the dignity of a Princess of Ithilien, but now her status as Shield-Maiden of Rohan is no more. Does she still pine for Aragorn, hence her sorrow? Hmmm.

Author's Response: Er... you\'re a very thoughtful person. Actually, i never would have thought of that. i just said something in my head and it sounded good so i wrote it down. thanx for the review!\r\niggybaby

A couple of months ago, I watched a LotR documentary in which I learned that about 1/5 of the Rohirrim riders were actually women wearing false beards. Your idea to write a story about one of them is most original. Is the first scene taking place in New Zealand near one of the LotR sets?

I don't know why, but this sounds like it could be a good script for a South Park episode. Not LotR, but still humorous.

Author's Response: I know it\'s not LOTR but in some small way it\'s related. It was inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean which Orlando \r\nBloom is in andn he plays Legolas in LOTR so it kind of is. When i told my friend that i\'d posted this she\'s just like \r\n\'but what has that got to do with LOTR?\' so i had to explain it to her as well. I\'m glad you enjoyed it. I\'m at home \r\ntoday so i\'ll try and come up with some reasons i like Arwen for you. Oh i like her because she is Elladan and \r\nElrohir\'s sister and because you can make her evil and it just seems to fit, i don\'t why though. Thanks for reviewing - \r\nLi

Yeah, I know where you're coming from. It sounds like me when I was in high school - the geek with the thick glasses who had his own telescope and studied astronomy. Such kids usually get picked on by the "cool" kids. Don't worry, Lira. All that will change when you become famous.

Title: Chapter 2: Part 2 - In New Zealand Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
Aha! Lira, I KNEW you had an obsession with Legolas. That's what I was teasing you about in my last review. There's nothing wrong with any obsession that moves you to write good fics. Keep obsessing and keep writing. I freely confess that I have a giant poster of Liv Tyler (as Arwen) in my living room. When guests ask who she is and why she's there, I always say, "She's my Muse."
By the way, did you get to visit Edoras?

Author's Response: Ahhhh, no offence to Legolas or anybody else who loves him as much as i did, he ran away, Ed\'s kinda sorta better, not to mention in Lira\'s Lies 6, he dies. Bitten by a vampire, poor bugger. Lucky person, you have a giant LOTR poster, i don\'t have one of those but i have a big Orlando Bloom poster, that counts, sorta. I haven\'t seen Edoras, i think that\'s in the North Island and i have never been there, besides, i haven\'t had time for sight seeing this year, my grandad died recently, i came for him and my gran.
