I can't understand Elsie's modesty after such a wild night. Anyway, good beginning!

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
I like the way Orlando describes his fantasy girl as Naked Elsie. You must understand, however, that certain feminists are probably already plotting to beam you to the Phantom Zone for this.

Author's Response: That\'s fair enough. Haha. I am just trying to write from a man\'s perspective. \r\nI am grateful for your reviews.\r\nHomegrown.\r\n\r\n

Wild Horses by Anwyn, Adora Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 4]
Summary: *Sonfic* Inspired completely by the song "Wild Horses" Which is beatifully performed by Natasha Bedingfield. This is my first attempt at doing a songfic, but I was so completely taken by the lyrics I couldn't help but give this a shot, I hope you enjoy it.

A masterful description of Eowyn standing upon the great stone porch of Meduseld as Aragorn and his friends ride up the gate path.

Author's Response: Thank you very so very much, It means alot :)

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
This is the first story I've read, so far, in which Galadriel and Celeborn share an intimate moment. It's too bad that they drifted apart by the beginning of the Fourth Age. Do you think they were eventually reunited in Valinor? Very nice story.

Author's Response: I\'d love to think that they were. Maybe that\'s a story to be written. I\'m glad you enjoyed the story. One story I\'ve found that shows tenderness between Galadriel and Celeborn is Gythia\'s \"Hand in Marriage,\" which has an interesting take on their relationship as well.

Ah, kids! What is it about kids that makes them think they're indestructible? I used to wander off like Amara does and I could never figure out why it always drove my parents crazy.

This is very well written. About what time in Middle Earth history is the story taking place?

Author's Response: i used to do that too. It takes place about 10 years before the fellowship. Sorry for the delayed response

Very good, so far. For a little more realism in a diary, you might insert a Quenya date for a chapter title; i.e., 2 Sulime 3091 TA.

Author's Response: Thanks, it seems like a good idea, but I\'m not an expert in any form of Elvish and as he is writing in the Common \r\nTongue, I might insert a date in the Common Tongue. Thanks again!

That's a lovely poem of The Lady of Light's mirror lying abandoned in the weed-wild garden of Caras Galadon. In "Arwen's Journey" the mirror is still being occasionally used by one of Galadriel's protegees.

Author's Response: Ah...thanks for the review. This one was kinda hard to write- partly because I\'ve never thought about it before, and it was a wiered rhyme sceme.

Thanks for responding to the challenge. I had a feeling that your story would be interesting, and it was.

Author's Response: You think that was interesting? I suppose for someone outside of the **sob** intense drama of my life, it would. I frankly think it is rather boring, especially compared to, say, Junior, Celestial, and Nazgrrl\'s responses. Well, thank you for reviewing, and for creating the challenge. OEG

Of all the responses to this challenge so far, yours is the most philosophical. I hadn't realized that your pen name was Rohirric. Thanks for responding to the challenge.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yes, the penname is Rohirric though it took a little digging around as I mentioned till I found out its\r\nactual meaning, and I find the meaning behind most names quite intresting hence why I couldn\'t resist responding to this \r\nchallenge ;) Thank you again for putting fourth such a challenge, I always enjoy responding to them.

Thanks for the very revealing essay, Anwyn. You certainly take your reviewing seriously and I'm sure it's greatly appreciated. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Hmmm, yeah, it does seem like I take this pretty seriously eh? Well, I do look at fanfiction as I do most things in that if\r\nit is worth doing at all it is worth doing well, and same goes for the review though I am trying to make it a habit to reivew\r\nmore often as there are many wonderful stories on here.

I've only finished reading two chapters, so far, but this is very good. I look forward to reading your other stories too.

Author's Response: Thankyou ever so much for you fantastic review. When I posted this on FF.net I was constantly flamed because of the way I write.\r\nThe reason I write the way I do is because I am British and have lived in the USA for nigh on 7 years and there is a big differenc e between American english and British english.\r\nI hope that you get a chance to read the rest of the fic soon and I await to hear what you think.\r\n\r\nCrystal

Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
I'm glad to see that you got through your writer's block. Your story is very absorbing. Don't pay any attention to the flamers on FF.net. I've heard from more than one quarter that most of them are anal-retentive twits who merely like to hear themselves talk. If you're going to deviate a bit from the canon, give your story an AU warning. That will usually defuse half the critics. My only other suggestion is that you put Elvish phrases in italics to set them apart from English.

Author's Response: Thank you for your response once again, it is a great thing to know someone other than my BETA reader has faith in my writing and is willing to give me some sensible ideas as to what needs tweeked - even if it is a minor thing. I am currently brainstorming on Chapter 9 and it should be up soon - I hope!\r\n\r\nI have a friend that I bounce ideas around with for each chapter and helps me emensily with the male aspect of the story. At the moment he has been unavailable due to his work but he has said that sometime in the next few weeks we will be able to bounce ideas around again. Please bare with me as it goes.\r\n\r\nCrystal.

I liked the idea of the diary entries to let the reader know what's going on in the characters' minds.

Author's Response: I am rather glad that you liked the Diary inserts, and I hope to incorparate a few more into the story line, I find that it helps to bring the story together.\r\nI am at presant writting the next chapter and it should be up soon, so keep your eyes peeled for updates.\r\n\r\nOnce again thankyou for you fantastic reviews they make me want to type faster to get the story out.\r\n\r\nCrystal

I'm sure Sam's duties as Mayor of the Shire would have meant he would be away for weeks at a time on official business. But I'm sure that Rosie's poem would have earned her a lot of hugs, kisses and tears of joy upon his return. You put a lot of thought and emotion into your first poem. Keep up the good work.

Title: Chapter 1: The Companion Reviewer: Karlmir Stonewain Signed
I only wish that I could communicate with my own muse in that sort of detail. Alas, it's only a vague feeling and will never get to the point of actual conversation. My muse is, of course, Arwen. I have a large movie poster of Liv Tyler as Arwen in my living room, which I occasionally gaze at for inspiration when the flow of my creative juices start to wane.

She also gives me a bit of impetus when I grow a little bored with the "Middle Earth project, as I like to call it. There's something in Liv's expression that seems to say, "Time is standing still for us in here. Get a move-on!" So, I open my notebooks, turn on my PC and get back to work.

Thanks for the interesting essay.

It sounds as if you thought this one up while spending a sunny afternoon picnicking in a clovery meadow on the Pelennor. Nice poem!

Author's Response: Well, that comes part-way true. I wrote the first part at night and there were these wonderful cumulostratus clouds that had breaks that you could just see the full moon and stars through. It then fermented in my mind, and I thought of the rest while on a bike ride. Thank you for the thoughts! NZ
