Title: Chapter 1: Balm Reviewer: meerkatalex Signed
Ah, this is beautifully sad... I've no idea why, but I was drawn to this story strangely, as if it were calling. I love it that you wrote from Frodo'd point of view, and that you made up that balm part. That is so like Sam!

Author's Response: Awww thanks meerkatalex! Not really sure where this story came from...but come it did! Thanks for reviewing! xoxox Armariel ~~~~{~@

Oh, this is so nice and straight to the point. The cause is lovely too. I would have reviewed this story before but I'd never heard of it. It should get more publicity!

Author's Response: I'm glad you feel that way about it! I'm not exactly sure how to get people to know of it though. Thanx for the review! iggybaby

Groovy. I like reading this collection of dreams because it's different and random.

Author's Response: I thought it would be fun. Sometimes I just like to read back over the dreams I've had and other people have had; they crack me up often.

Hi. Well I agree with you when you say you should rewrite this but it does have a good plot and the speech is very well written for the twins as they seem in character. Well done, keep writing!

Author's Response: Thanks! I keep saying I need to rewrite it but it'll probably never happen, I have too much stuff to do these days... Thanks for the review anyway, who knows, one day I might rewrite it - Breia

Awww, very cute and well-written. I enjoyed reading this - it is a good friendship story and a good journey for Estel to find out what he can really do. Silly question, but can Elves talk to trees? Sorry, it's late, and I'm sleepy-fied. You're a good writer and should continue writing stories like this!

Title: Chapter 1: Reasons I Hate Arwen Reviewer: meerkatalex Signed
HA! Although, I never recalled her stealing his horse or sword, but I might have overlooked that in the book. And she does look bad in green, I must admit.

Author's Response: Well, she doesn't steal the sword and horse literally but she does take Glorfindel's place which is just outright BAD!! I'm glad someone enjoyed it though, that was the original intention all that time ago. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the review - Li

This sounds like something very much that the Elves would sing, or maybe an Elvish-like Hobbit! ((Anyone we know? Teehee.)) Anyway this is a very good poem - I won't point out the spelling mistakes as some authors have done that already, all I have to say is one word - graceful. Oh, and flowing, And Elvish. Oh, that's three. Never mind. Well done!

meerkatalex

Author's Response: I had Lothlorien in mind while writing this, so maybe Celeborn, Galadriel, or Haldir. Of course, it could be Merry, too, but I rather think it was an elf writing this. :) Thanks on all three counts, I appreciate the comments. NZ

"And in darkness, eat them" YAY! Eat the chocolate chips! They rock! One for the dark lord... Tee hee, you should send this to Peter Jackson and ask him to put Galadriel on the extras reading this out; everyone in the world would be rolling around on their sofas laughing! Anyways, yes, this is brilliantly funny! -

Summary: A poem I wrote for a special Elf at the time of Summer Solstice, 1986. I had painstakingly did it in Calligraphy on parchment and presented it to her in a glassed frame. She was mildly amused. Alas! It did not win her heart. Neither did she notice the message in the vertical column. Ah! The foolish things I did for love when I was younger!

Title: Chapter 1: A Solstice for Andrea Reviewer: meerkatalex Signed
Hello. Well I think this is quite good. I like the line about ash and oak, which is about trees, no? I wish that I could write as well as you. Well good luck with your writing!

Author's Response: There's also a hidden message that you will find if you read down the left hand column of letters.

Yes, the line about ash and oak is, indeed, about trees. Those two species make up about 2/3 of the trees on my property and are an important source of firewood.

Don't make the mistake of comparing your work to that of others. Learn to be satisfied by knowing you're bringing a smile to your readers' lips. Your stuff is already good. Your style and the way you express yourself will improve with time and practice.

Thanks for reviewing. I look forward to reading your next posting.

I never could define exactly what the ideal length of a short story was supposed to be. Thanks for reading and reviewing.
