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!

Brilliant! This story should have Humor as one of it's genres! I love it, sista! Or brudda, depending... Oh, I'm such a babbler... I also loved the part about Gandalf appearing and sprinkling that stuff over Boromir's wounds, and that part about Lucy Pensieve. Love it!

Author's Response: Ha ha, thanks! :D

Good, but as you say, this story need a little work. I'm giving it 8/10 on a score rating, like they do on HPfanfiction, and I'll say just this - I love the title, although it does sound a bit slashy. Otherwise, it is great! No spelling or grammar mistakes, and the text chosen is lovely! Well done!

Very interesting to read - it's a tad long, (lol,) but I enjoyed reading it. It shows a lot more depth in Goldberry's and especially Tom's character, which I love, and the ending rocks as it is descriptive and thoughtful, yet simple all at once. Incredible!

meerkatalex

Author's Response: Yeah, I suppose I got carried away on the length of this fic, but the story goes as the plot flows. I never could define exactly what the ideal length of a short story was supposed to be. Thanks for reading and reviewing. It's especially gratifying when readers take the time to check out my older stories.

Very thought-provoking AU story. Kind of scary to think about too, but nevertheless intriguing. I love it, but there could be some more emotion in it for people (like me! ;-) ) who thrive on reading angsty stories. However I do love this and hope to read more of your works!

Author's Response: Thank-you! At first I thought this fanfic wouldn't work too well. (It is my first shot at an AU. Don't you worry, there are going to be some good emotion coming soon! Shall be posting the other chapters soon. (I am currently working on chapter 5). Thank-you again for reading!

Beautiful! And it answers so many questions too, if it be the truth of what had happened whilst the Fellowship was away. I should love to read more of your works, and shall await eagerly for more fictions! I do think that the flashbacks, and the interpretations of the attack and times are very good, and that several points of view do the story it's duty - it is a very good novel, and I vision that, in a while, many reviews should be submitted to it. This story deserves to have a lot of credit, and I hope that by reading this review you will have further inspiration and plot bunnies in the near future. Well done, a job well done! - Although jobs are tedious and writing is not! :-) -

Author's Response: Hello Meerkatale! Thank you so much for your kind words. It has taken me a long time to gather my thoughts on the story and, eventually, find the courage to write it. I am very glad you are enjoying it. I am trying my best as far as future stories are concerned, but these days I am very busy with my studies and hardly ever find time to write or even just think about stories. However, there are several old ones online, and if you read German as well you can find a LONG one at storiesofarda.com where you can find me under Lily :) Thanks again! Lily

This story makes me laugh! It is funny but also reminds me of when my younger brothers & sisters learnt 'naughty' words. ((But according to my parents 'loo' is a naughty word; so we must say 'toilet' instead. I hope to read some more of your stories, and well done for writing a little Legolas story!

Author's Response: *laughs* Loo is a naughty word? I'll keep that in mind! My brothers started repeating words they heard on Nickelodeon and since then that channel is off-limits (can't say that I minded!). My brothers were in my mind when I wrote this, and typically are when I write little Legolas. Thank you! You are very encouraging! -Kitt

Oh yesh! Legolas sounds macho rather than la-di-da as I have read in some other stories! However what's best about it is that he is not too macho, if you know what I mean. Aragorn speaks exactly like he does in the books - I struggle with that, so well done!

Author's Response: Well, I struggle constantly with making Legolas *not* la-di-da. Oh yeah, I love that he's somewhere inbetween air-headed and mancho. But he's so in-between things he's hard to write! I'm glad Aragorn spoke alright. Thanks so much for reading! -Kitt

meerkatalex

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the compliments! I love writing about the wonderful characters in LOTR. (Yep, gotta love those Hobbits!) I've grown so fond of the Shire and its denizens that I just ca't resist adding my own characters into the mix. To be honest, all the extra characters in my stories aren't all my own creations. I have a very good friend and writing partner that I met at a LOTR gathering and we have been collaborating on Frodo's Journal for quite some time. I'll be sure to pass the compliments on to her! Thanks again!

Laughing very loudly; this story is very funny and portrays all the characters well in a way that makes you want to laugh. You should definately continue to write humorous stories and I hope you do well in the future!

This is very different to your other stories' formats as it's kind of a poem, but I love it! It's well written and quite descriptive, and I LOVE description! The memories are a little creepy and scary but this just adds to the atmosphere! Brilliant! Well done!!
