I love your fic! I can't wait to read the next chapter! Keep up the good work! ^-^
Rotfl! that was an hullarious chapter! XD
I enjoyed reading this, its very entertaining. I can't wait for the next chapter! Keep up the good work! ^-^
Author's Response: Is it alright if I take a moment to bask in the encouragement? Sometimes I doubt if the effort I expend is worth it, or if this story actually is as good as I think it is. . .and obviously my opinion is highly biased and doesn\'t really matter, so any crumb you throw me feels like a feast. Moment over, back to work as not to uttlerly disappoint . . .
*cries* It was so beautiful! I loved it! I cant believe its over! But it was such a happy ending! I enjoyed reading your creation!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words! I really appreciate them, more so because it was my first story! I\'ll be posting my new story today, so check it out if you have the time!
What happened to chapter 4?
I love this fanfic! I cant wait to read the next chapter! Keep up the good work!
Again, an excellent piece of work. I think Frodo and Sam fit perfectly as a couple of little boys! lol.
You're writting these really fast! Don't wear yourself out, ok? ^-^
Author's Response: I\'m glad they didn\'t mind it too much. Hobbits aren\'t children, of course, but they have a childlike quality that is hard to ignore.
I\'ll do my best not to burn out, but the darn thing hardly lets me sleep!
Thanks for the feedback! Hope you enjoy the next chapter.
I'm sorry that I haven't been on for so long!
I just can't get enough of this! I really love it! I think you should wait until you finish up with this before you put out the new one of Elaura's future. Hope you update soon! :]
Author's Response: Well, hello again! I can't be upset with you when I'm posting chapters so far apart. Thanks for taking time to review and I'm looking forward to posting a bit more often now that I'm home. Please let me know if you like these next two chapters . . . and even if you don't! Especially if you don't. ;)
A very touching chapter. I can't wait to read the next part, but please don't push yourself. Stress is a mean little booger and nobody does well under it (like the main character).
Author's Response: No kidding. I don\'t know what day it is half the time. Hope you enjoy the next two.
\r\nThanks for taking the time to review, I\'ll try to be better about responding in the future.
I love this story so far! XD I can't wait until the next installment! Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Well hello! It\'s nice to hear from you. Thank you for the compliment and the review. The next cha[ter is coming along a little slowly, but it is coming.
One word, excellent. I love the way you write. It is both short and experessive. Not too much information, but enough for me to draw a picture in my mind. I shall wait patiently for the next chapter! Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you! I was hoping I wasn\'t getting into too much technical stuff. It\'s good you can draw a mental picture. Someday I want to get an artist to read my stories and see if they see what I have in my mind.
Thanks for the review, I\'m already about a thousand words into the next chapter!
rotfl! That was hullarious! I bow to your excellence! *bows* lol!
Honestly, I have not read a story as good as this in a while and I really appreciate the hard work you put in it. Keep it up, I can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: Hard work or desperation? I\'m not sure which, I only know if I didn\'t write it, my head would explode.
Someone said recently the humor had dropped off a bit, I\'m glad it\'s back.
Thanks for the review, enjoy the next chapter.
This is truely one of your best chapters. I felt my heart bleed for Pelincrist! I was so touched by the emotions in this chapter that I couldn't help but smile the entire time!
You are an excellent writter! Keep up the excellent work!
Author's Response: Thank you! I felt terrible for Pelincrist too. You know young males, they have a tendency to think they are invincible. Must have been very hard for him to discover there were fates worse than death.
Glad you like my story. Thanks for the feedback!
This chapter was very entertaining and I really liked the end with the Entwife. I love your work! XD
Until next time. ~D.D.~
Thanks! I enjoyed writing it. This time of year is a bit harrowing, but I'm still writing. Hope you like the next one!
Thanks for the review!
I found this chapter very interesting. I just can't get enough! Keep up the excellent work!
Author's Response: I\'m still writing, hope you enjoy the next installment. Thanks for the review!
I almost fainted when I noticed that you had put up 3 at the same time! lol!
Aw! So much love! I almost cried! I love Widget! He's adorable! XD
I can't wait to read the next chapter! ^-^
Author's Response: Ah, but wait, there\'s more. I\'m done with Chapter 71, I jest have to proofread it and post. I love Widget, too!
\r\nThanks for the review! I probably missed you all more than you missed me.
Another masterpiece! YAY! XD
Did you get the message I sent you on myspace? It said that I was planning a trip to South Korea in December, but I changed it to January. The plane that I'm taking will get me to Japan and from there I'll be taking another form of transportantion (I havent decided yet) to Korea.
Author's Response: I did. Did you not get my answer? Korea is a lovely country. Most likely, you\'ll end up taking another flight to Korea. The two countries aren\'t quite as close as they appear. There may be a ferry, but I don\'t know how long a trip it is. It took us over 24 hours to cross the English Channel in a ferry from Cherbourg to Rosslare, just to give you an idea. If you can spare the time, it was quite an adventure. From the southern coastal towns, you would need to take a train. I recommend getting to a hub where the ATX is available. It is a nice, fast train and for about 30,000 won (approx $30) you can upgrade to first class and that is a wonderful experience for a weary traveller. I really don\'t suggest driving and taxis can get expensive. The roads are narrow and many of them are not named or labeled until you get on the highway.
\r\nYou will like Korea, but as I said in my email, winter is very cold, especially up north in Seoul and beyond. You can expect to see some snow if you do go north.
\r\nThanks for the review! I hope you like the next one!
lmao! I was laughing so hard at the mental image or Widget beating the hell out of a crow! That was a great! XD Oh, and I love that song! It always make me feel like crying for some reason. (out of happiness, of course)
And about Korea, the plane is going to take us to Japan (of which we will be staying for a few days, a week at the most) and then we will take another plane to Korea and we will most likely be taking a train to Seoul. My friend's grandmother lives there and we are going to stay there in her house. Its really big and she lives, practically, by herself. We will stay there for at least a month and then go back to Japan and back home (since the tickets I have are for there and back). It sounds like a big hassle, but I'm glad to be able to get to explore more than one place on this trip and will be using it for my advantage.
Are you still stationed in Japan?
Author's Response: I\'m actually in Okinawa, not \'mainland\' Japan. You won\'t even see the island out your window, unless for some reason you\'re redirected to Naha airport. You will probably fly straight into Tokyo-Narita and then from there directly to the airport in Seoul. We always flew into Osan Airbase, but that\'s just for military flights. You\'ll probably take a bus from the airport to wherever your friend\'s grandmother lives, unless it is close enough for a taxi. Does your friend speak Korean? It would probably help. When you see the taxis, just remember the black ones with the leather interior are a little more expensive. The busses are all pretty nice and have individual seats, some with seatbelts and they all have curtained windows. If you like shopping, be sure to check out Itaewon. However, unless you buy in a real department store, assume the brand names are imitation. It\'s very easy to get all the little Coach emblems and designer labels. Also, although I absolutely adore my \'mink\' blanket, it is 100% synthetic and shouldn\'t cost you much more than $20 for a full sized one or a full length \'mink\' robe. Make sure you\'re always wearing clean socks as you will take your shoes off in homes and restaraunts. It\'s not a hassle, the airport personnel in Japan and Korea are extremely helpful and friendly; just be ready to wait in line at customs and immigration.
\r\nWidget\'s a great little warrior! I think he\'s going to make an excellent Captain of the airforce! Hope you like the next chapter, thanks for the review.\r\n
Haha! Legolas told Aragorn that he stinks! If it was me, I probably would have told him the first day I met him! lol!
I'm not sure what air port it is. I'll have to find out later. My friend is native to Korea and she is fluent in the language. We are staying with her grandmother and I hope that I will get the oportunity to borrow the kitchen at times! lol! I better start saving up my money, I have a feeling that I'll be in a huge shopping mood. Its rare, but when I'm in the mood, I tend to spend more than I intend... ehehehe...
Author's Response: Aragorn will get him back for that.
\r\nIt will help a lot having native-speakers with you. The exchange rate is approximately 1,000 won to the dollar, so don\'t let anyone give you a 100 won coin for a quarter, it\'s closer to a dime. The rate changes daily and is usually in the favor of US dollars. Most businesses will take either won or US, but you\'ll want to keep both on hand. Credit cards work just fine, too. Don\'t let anyone trick you into thinking you are eating dog. Dog meat is very expensive and only available at certain times of the year; it\'s a delicacy and too expensive to waste on messing with someone. They don\'t eat pets, either. The dogs you might see hanging in the markets (not likely) are raised for food. Bul-go-gi is a very nice meal served for at least two people. In some restaraunts, they bring you the raw meat (chicken, beef, and/or pork) to cook on a frying surface in the middle of your table. The fatty parts are considered especially good, so don\'t make a show of cutting it away. They\'ll bring lots of side-dishes and will normally re-fill them as they are emptied. Your friend has probably shown you kimchee. If you like it, great! You\'ll get more than you could ever eat in Korea. If you don\'t like it, you\'ll have to get used to the smell. Although Koreans are very fastidious and bring toothbrushes with them to use after every meal, the smell of kimchee is very strong on them as they eat it with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
\r\nAnyway, I\'m sure you\'ll love Korea, I certainly did. Glad you are enjoying the story. I\'ll have the next chapter up in a few minutes. Thanks for the review.
Thank you Captain Obvious! lol! I'm surprised Widget hasn't exploded with pride and joy! haha!
I like kimchi (or however you spell it XP) and I have eaten at korean resturaunts plenty of times, so its not the food that I'm necissarily worried about. I just like to have vairety, and America has plenty of that! My friend made me promise to make cookies for her while we're there! Are north koreans hostile nowadays? Hana, my friend, says that they going to let people in to tour the country for a while. I'm a bit scared because I think I might be shot! lol!
Author's Response: Oh! No more feathers! Although an exploding owl might be interesting to see . . . no, no, that was Melkor, don\'t mind him. Glad you liked it; hope you enjoy the next one.
\r\nI think you\'re right about the spelling. I couldn\'t say about North Koreans. It changes from day to day. Your best bet is to call the US embassy and ask if it would be a good idea for you to take the tour. Your friend and her grandmother may have permissions you won\'t. There is a nice tour you can take at the DMZ, but you stay on the South Korean side the whole time. I\'m going to go work on Chapter 76 now. Thanks for the review!
