That is very sweet i like it. Especially how you only hint at who the girl was. Clever. -Lady of the Lake

Author's Response: Thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I find it is much more fun to kind of skirt around who someone is sometimes but it is tricky becuase I found myself nearly just coming right out with her name again and again. Thank you so much for the view!

Summary: An essay. Varda kindled the stars and set them into patterns. Many of these stars the Professor named in Elvish, but which real-life stars was he referring to?

I like it. I too am an at-home astronomer. I hope to become proffesional someday though. I find that you essay mades a lot of sense. I recently did a project involved with sky glow limiting magnitude, and other light pollution. I wish I had known this when I gave my speech today however it would probably be considered "off-topic". Thanks for the wonderful essay anyhow. Happy star-gazing!

-Lady of the Lake



Author's Response: Cool! I'm studying to be a professional astronomer myself. It's silly, but the fact that Tolkien's Elves "like the stars" is what made me interested in astronomy in the first place. What are your favorite sights? I've an 8-inch scope and I love to track down galaxies and nebulae; I've also a solar filter and I occasionally drag it out to look at the sun. Did you see the exploding comet from last winter - Holmes I think. That comet made me hyperventilate in excitement. (Bother, I'm rambling). Whew, I’m relieved the essay made some sense. I hope your speech went well. Glad to meet another star-gazer! -Kitt ; )

Interesting story. I still don't know how people like you and Aragorn keep track of all their different nicknames.

Author's Response: Oh, I can’t keep track of *all* of my nicknames. I have more than Aragorn – hands down. “Mag” and “Mags” are the most frequent and the easiest to remember. I mean; honestly, Magsaroni and Cheese? Thanks for reading and reviewing! How is TSR coming along? I’m working on the RTM chapter. Lenore’s POV on Legolas’ healing -- that should get interesting. Thanks again!

Summary: It all began when Traveller looked at my darling Maedhros the wrong way. Nothing would have happened if she had heeded my threats. In defense, I have assembled what forces were necessary to take on… dun dun dun… KILLER Tooks! That’s right folks—Merry and Pippin have constructed a Trojan Bunny supplied with the deadly Ammo of…Herbal Essences Shampoo Bottles. Witness the battle between Ar-feiniel and Traveller for Lindt’s Chocolate, bragging rights as Ruler of Himring, a free dinner at the Prancing Pony, and Maedhros’ signature.

That would've been a horribly nasty start to a book. However I think you should continue just for amusment.

Author's Response: Only horribly nasty? Or horribly nasty, dirty and wet? :P I've been thinking of doing just that, actually, to see what I come up with. Although the phrase "nasty, dirty and wet" will be quickly dispensed with I think.

Wow that's really random, I like it though. Keep going!

Author's Response: It's supposed to be random, I'm glad you like it :). It will keep going for another couple of chapters, this is a short story :)

Summary:

Angela Gallo, a fiery, mouthy FBI agent, is shot and killed trying to take down a gunman after disobeying orders. Her friends and colleagues think she is dead, when in reality, she is everything but. After awaking in a strange land, Angela is fascinated by the concept of a war and a ring.

“A war because of a ring? Really? That is right up my alley.”

Angela must learn how to wield a sword and fight like a warrior; guns are of little use in Middle-earth.

This is the first story I have posted in a while, but I am so happy to be back and I really hope that people will take the time to read and review! Constructive criticism is always welcome!

I really liked this. Good job describing her character without too many words. I like how you tell the reader things without coming right out and saying it. I await more.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I should have another chapter or two up by later today. I hope you enjoy what is to come!

Prompted by Aragorn, the Fellowship goes on a roadtrip through the newly-transformed Middle-earth after the War of the Ring.

I'm enjoying this so far. I'm curious to see why Aragorn has lost it, and how he got his hands on an RV. Looking forward to the next chapter.

Summary:

Once upon a time, there was an FBI agent who had given up on love; that is, until an expensive car showed up in front of her house. The next thing she knew, she was learning how to surf, meeting celebrities, and realizing that not everyone in the world needs to be put in handcuffs.

This is great!! I love the cop's thoughts, it flows really well. I feel like you did a good job setting up their personalities and I look forward to seeing where you go with this.

Summary:

Inspired by a conversation on twitter regarding the quote "It's true you don't see many dwarf women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for dwarf men." and how LOTR would be different if Gimli was actually a girl.

This story is a story about the complicated romantic stories that evolve when gender is flipped.

Any and all feedback is welcomed with open arms.

ENJOY!
