Bio:
First - the stories I like: I'll read anything about the Hobbits, or Elves, or Men, or Dwarves, or fluff... Basically anything without graphic sex or torture. My favourite authors that I would definately recommend to other readers and/or authors are:

Ar-feiniel
Anaphase
Kitt Otter
Shadow Maiden
Karlmir Stonewain
Dunedain ranger of the North
xFanarix
Owlett
Traveller
Origo

These should receive certificates and I admire them beyond anything. Also the favourite authors button does not work on my account *grrr* so they're my favourites!

My likes outside of fanfiction and writing: I like trampolining, singing, (I don't think I'm very good though, lol,) chatting to my friends and watching new movies that come out.

Things I don't like: People who lie, cheat or spread slander and gossip. People who are racist and/or homophobic or sexist. Gossip itself angers me, and science is one of my worst subjects at school, so I guess I hate that too. I just don't understand it...

I am not a beta reader but review a lot in my POV, as I don't really have a lot of time in my hands when it's term-time at school.

Overall, I love this site and hope that people review my stories!

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!

"Among the great". This is a beautiful sentence and I think you deserve marvellous credit for this story. Besides a few spelling/grammar mistakes it is very well written and the dialogue of each character is distinct. Well done!

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

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!

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.
