Summary: This story is written as a response to the challenge "A Salute to Jules". An elvish polka band performs at King Thranduil's begetting day party. The story is set around the year 2720 T.A. I don't exactly know in which category this should go, so I picked book-verse. Rated PG for alcohol consumption, just to be on the safe side.

The story is very "tousshing". I have never read a fanfic with a sloshed King Thranduil but you have done an excellent job* applauds Formegil*.

Considering the fact that English is not your first language, you have done a marvellous job. I hardly found any mistakes, just few small ones. But then, that's the critic in me talking*grins*.

Keep writing. The mental picture of an Elvish polka band is going to keep me laughing for sometime.


Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I needed to relieve some stress, and browsing this site I found the challenge. As I listen sometimes schlager and polka myself, this idea appealed to me. Especially since there are so many bad lyrics to make fun of. Good to know you liked my story.

Summary: Aedil and his elvish polka band on tour in Middle-Earth. Can they struggle their way through sappy lyrics, bad contracts and enthusiastic fangirls? And most importantly, do they get anything but sore feet from their journey to fame? A sequel to The Singsong Sindar.

I have to congratulate you. You have managed to find some incredibly tasteless lyrics. It's amazing how people can create such nonsense (I meant the lyrics, not the story).

The story is really funny. I can just about imagine the Elven equivalents of pop singers stuck on a stinky boat. It made me think of the Backstreet Boys (I hate boy bands; rock and classical is way better) stuck in the same boat.

I'm looking forward to an update soon!


Author's Response: Thank you very much! There are even more of this stuff coming. For example in the next chapter our heroes play some tango. In the first story I tried to translate the lyrics to rhyme, but \"The Fishermaid\" was such nonsense that it was best to render it almost word to word.
