The Gift of Iluvatar by Ariel Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 8]

A lovely story. Thank you for writing and filling in the blanks. I look forward to reading more of your work.

Author's Response: Thank you! I look forward to that too. And I hope they bring you as much pleasure as this one obviously did. There is no greater reward for a fanfic author than knowing her work is appreciated.

Summary: Three elves. Two sisters, one man - two friends and a stranger. Even an Elf can change, if they make the wrong choices. Some choices do not only affect ourselves - and it is all too easy to be dragged into the consequences... Bookverse, perhaps slightly AU. Work in progress.

I like it, very much. I have one tip for you, dear. Forget about Mary Sues altogether and write the story you want to write. I look forward to your next chapter.

Summary: Elrond makes the decision to send Arwen to Lothlorien after Celebrian passes into the West. Once she is there, Galadriel appoints Haldir as her escort for reasons the Lady of Light will not reveal. First in a series of three stories that will follow through until after the events of 'The Return of the King'. I put this in the crossover section because I am borrowing a character from the game 'The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age', but you don't have to know the game to understand the story. Please Read and Review.

Although your lovely story brought tears to my eyes, I enjoyed it very much. Our dear Sam is the bravest, gentlest, sweetest of all beings in Middle Earth. Not a mean bone in his body. Thank you for writing.

Author's Response: I know some of my favorite stories are the ones that make me cry - seems counterintuitive, doesn\'t it? Anyway, I\'m glad you enjoyed the story and pleased that you\'ve taken the time to tell me so.

Horseplay by Cheers Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 25]
Summary: Nicole is a hard working young rider, offered the chance of a lifetime to work on stunts on film. She meets Karl Urban at a horseshow she is competing in, and they get involved. Yet they get entangled in a web of lies and misunderstandings. Nicole is challenged to learning more about human relationships and looking past her own 'horsey' world. Anything to do with the actors is entirely made up. I don't know Karl or Viggo or Orlando or anyone and this is all for fun! Warning, there is a lot of swearing in this story!
