Title: Chapter 10: Forsaken Vengeance Reviewer: Kitt Otter Signed
Aragorn will be perfect in the sequel, definitely. It gives me excited twitches thinking about the possibilities… he’s such a good parallel to the other boy-warrior-kings Peter and Caspian.
This chapter had very clear action; reading it was like watching the movie. *winces, then sighs with relief* I had truly thought that arrow got Legolas – I guess chainmail does come in handy! His conversation with the giant was priceless. His first sight of Aslan was breathtaking, and it was uplifting when his faith returned and his revenge-lust settled. I had looked forward to what must be his final confrontation with Jadis and it had the perfect outcome – he spared her like his grandfather did and still Aslan got to do his part. Brilliant. Oh, how like her to try to stab Legolas in the back. (Lucky for that mail again). I'll be sad to see the story end and to say goodbye to everyone, but, well, a good story is one that ends at the right time. I wonder how he’ll get back home and how changed he shall be, since before he had been holed up by orcs and full of guilt for his lost patrol. Looking forward to the conclusion…
-Kitt

Author's Response: The more I think about Aragorn being in the sequel, the more excited I get about it! Possibilities, possibilities! :D Thanks for your words concerning the action! I'm glad to hear it was clear! Well, I just posted the next chapter, so enjoy! Thanks so much for the review! ~Ila

Title: Chapter 11: Epilogue Reviewer: Kitt Otter Signed
*applause* Beautiful finale!
The pebble is a tangible symbol, not only a piece of Narnia, but also a reminder of hope. Aslan was (IS) wonderful. I'm glad Legolas did finally call him Adar.
I like your Thranduil. He's strong yet compassionate. The transition Legolas had between diving into the sea and coming out of a stream was pretty clever. “Eru protected me,” - very true, without being too specific. *g* I wonder when he'll be ready to tell anyone of his experience?
I will keep that ending quote somewhere... it is a good thing to remember.
Well, I look forward to the sequel. Thank you for sharing this. May Eru bless you and guide your pen!

Author's Response: Dear Kitt, You have been simply wonderful. I can't thank you enough for sticking with this story to the end and leaving such wonderful and beautiful reviews that have encouraged me beyond measure. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this such a rewarding experience! You have been a gift and blessing from God in my life! Navaer, mellon nin! ~Ila

Title: Chapter 1: Legolas obsession Reviewer: Kitt Otter Signed
Wonderful compliation!
Lol! I do wander through the mall looking out for the smallest sign of Legolas; that was easier about three years ago, but it's still possible to find him. I have tried to make my ears pointy. (After about 6 years of tugging, I think they're pointing a little). Yeah, I made myself a bow, try to walk on snow (sighs; it just doesn't work, does it?) and learned to be obsessed with green.
One thing I haven't done is bought my marriage ring... hmm; thanks for reminding me... : P
-Kitt : )

Author's Response: Lol! I 've done most of them except the wedding ring one! Thanx 4 reviewing! Love love love legolas

Yay! The Ladyship of the Ring! Wait, I don't know if that is a good thing. Feminine jealousies sometimes overturn good feminine sense. Still, you’d never see the male Wraiths sit down and talk things out.
"Merryanne" - yes of, course. *laughs*
Wow, Sammy ate a tin can before? *looses appetite* Now, I've never seen any of my goats metal... if they could they'd have long since broken out of their pen. But really, Hobbit(esses) do somewhat resemble goats in their appetite.

I must be the most cultural ignoramus in Arda - I really don't know who Doctor Phil is; well, I get that he basically gives therapidic blather... But to your comedic credit it was even to me HILARIOUS. And horrifying.

Hey Luna! Oh, yeah, I’ve seen him. The baldness is so ewwww. Mustaches I can handle, though.
T-talk about feelings? A bald guy talking about feelings. And a *guy* too. *shiver down up spine* You know, that wouldn’t be bad if he were, say, a very hot Elf with red hair and one hand or a certain Shipwright who has a beard but is definitely not bald. *eyes dreamily unfocuse* But really, now, this is scary stuff.

Title: Chapter 5: Hangin’ with Kitt Reviewer: Kitt Otter Signed
Thank you for the thank you card!
*gasp* Maedhros steal from children! And kill Arwen?? *shakes head* We just need to buy him his own lightsabor.
Can't catch a lightsabor by the blade, can you Aragorn? (I’ve always waited for that to happen in Star Wars.) But he was getting to be creepy... though chasing after his hand still is. *tries unsuccessfully not to laugh*
Ah, poor Olly; he'll need some otter treats after this. (Yay! I got to stroke him! Always wanted to stroke an otter!)
Oooh. *wince* I hope Mae will forgive me the lump on his head!
By the way, the woman overboard joke nearly had me choking... I'll print it and tell it over Christmas dinner.
Thanks for making me laugh.
-Kitt ; )

Author's Response: No problem; I had fun making you “Thank You!” card. Yup, Mae gets in the “I will kill you all” mood when he doesn’t get what he wants (He also gets this adorable pout…Shh!!). Next time you’re on the Internet buying Lightsabers, make sure to pick up a blue one for Maedhros – he needs a “Get Well Soon” present since you left such a big gash in his head that he keeps forgetting my name. I know, right! I’ve always wanted someone to anti-climatically miss in catching a Lightsaber – I know I would. Like one time I was pretending to be Indiana Jones and was twirling around a whip awesomely. I was like, “Wow! I’m really getting the hang of this! You know, this isn’t so- OW!!” Unfortunately, I got a big head or something because I whipped myself in the cheek. I’m glad I made you laugh, it’s what I’m here for. I can’t seem to remember where I got that women overboard joke, but I was rolling on the ground laughing so hard when I first heard it. For some reason, I’ve always wanted to swim with dolphins, but then again, there are more dolphin attacks then shark attacks…Hey! That gives me an idea!!

Oh my... that WAS disterbing. I am rusty on my Sesame Street lore and for a while could not recall who Grover was... right, the blue guy!
Just so you know, Butcher Elmo will haunt my dreams. : P
I got your 5th age outline. My random comments are forthcoming. But as a preview, it was wild and I like it!
-Kitt : )

Author's Response: Goheno nin, I had a headache last night and was I stressed because I am getting all of these projects in school that I have to do, so I just wanted to have Butcher Elmo chase around a random Fangirl for a little while. Butcher Elmo has popped up in my dreams a few times, and I was honestly really afraid when he did because I have not watched Sesame Street since, well, The First Age ;). I was going to write an extened version on the Fifth Age but I wanted to hear your comments first. I feel like I only focused on that one war when I could have gone into back stories and what not. *Shrugs* I'll never be able to please myself. Yes, Super Grover -- I wanted to add in that Frog-thing named,uh, Kermit and have him sing, "It's not easy being green" but I feel like I added that somewhere else...

Title: Chapter 1: A Child's Wisdom Reviewer: Kitt Otter Signed
Too bad about missing the contest deadline; this was true to the prompt word, be assured.
Estel was just hugably sweet, innocently wise. "lullaby of the river" - a very true description. I love to fall asleep listening to running water. I'd imagine in Rivendell it must almost seem to bring an enchanted sleep. (Sorry, digressing).
I think it does take a child's hope to begin healing. From what I gathered in LotR, Legolas was a light-hearted guy but with many sorrows. I like that Estel was there at one of those harder parts of his life. I would like to see this friendship develop. *hint, nudge*
Touching story, Ila.

Title: Chapter 1: Fate Reviewer: Kitt Otter Signed
Hello Fei -
(Hopefully it's OK to reply to a review-reply). Interesting plot idea! It could develop into a good story, I mean, it would be fun to see how Maedhros is around children. And exciting, too, trying to keep her from Morgoth. (I didn’t mention before, but I like that in this story you judge a man how good he would be as a father. Very wise!)
Listen, if you need help I can beta for you: check grammar, critique plots, and so on before you post a story. Let me know. (I should be contact-able from my bio).
I started a story about Maedhros in Doriath that ends just as he goes to search for the boys. But I find him a wee bit hard to write. *laughs* I admit I’m a little envious you have the dynamics of his personality down so well.
There’s few happy!Maedhros stories, really, but he’s such an amazingly tragic character it can’t be helped. Did you ever read Still Anonymous’ The Greatest Torment? (It should be on this site). It takes place after Fingon rescues Mae. She portrays Maedhros very well and has a seemless dream-flashback-back-to-present thing going. She’s also got a cute Sons of Feanor story A Gift from Oromë.
(Hey, I shout Círdan’s Beard too! *ducks angry shipwright’s paddle*)
-Kitt

Author's Response: Hello, hello. Yup, it’s totally fine to review-reply. What can I say; I have my wise moments. Thanks; I thought it was an interesting story idea, too. I even have some dialogue scenes thought up: “You know, when you pick up a rock and turn it over, you see bugs and mud all over the back of it, right? That is what reading a person’s mind is like, Maedhros. It is not what you think.” Well, something along those lines. It would be very hard indeed to write it though because I was thinking of starting it off with the Second Kin-Slaying. You know, having Mae in Doriath fighting and what not, then the three C’s dying and Elwing escaping with the Silmaril and having Elured and Elurin captured and all that epic stuff. But it would be difficult because I’ve never written a battle before. I mean, fight scenes yes, but not battles. Oh well, I challenge myself. Or maybe I can start it off with him just finding her…that would be easier…but less epic…hmmmm…. * Sighs * Would you be my Beta? Really? Yay! Thanks! No, I haven’t read any of those stories; I’ve been meaning to read more Maedhros stories here. You know, to read the different portrayals and all. But, I’ve only seen Mae/Fingon slashes. Well, I’ll write a few beginnings for “the Listener”. Namarie, Fei. P.S. CIRDAN’S BEARD!! * Gets pushed overboard of ship by an angry Cirdan * P.P.S. Have you ever heard a joke that goes like, “You know how when a man falls overboard, you say, ‘Man overboard!’ right? Well, what happens when a women falls overboard?” “You say full speed ahead.”

Title: Chapter 1: Fate Reviewer: Kitt Otter Signed
This was intense. I love the character sketches of the sons of Feanor... they were just wow. And Maedhros was amazing; you know, I can believe what you told is true. He was real-to-life and facinating. I hope you do more.
("hangin' with Maedhros", "cliffhanger", no, very good puns!)
-Kitt : )

Author's Response: Thank you very much, Kitt! The character sketches were my favorite part to write; I loved all of the different personalities. So much fun! For some reason Caranthir is my second favorite Son now that I have written his personality down. I do not remember that much about him, only that he was “Caranthir the Dark” and that he gets killed by Dior with the other C’s. Maedhros was so sweet in my dream; I loved it! So very attractive, too. Actually, I am thinking about doing another Maedhros story. I *was* going to write more of this one; you know, if we lived, I would take him back to see his brothers and all [happy happy joy joy], then I would get to hang out with him when he gets to go to Himring and all of that. But the time line that I found said that was 15 years later and nothing else eventful happens for a few hundred years; we all know I can’t live to 400, unfortunately. But, fear not! I have been toying around with this other great idea that just-so-happens to include a great deal of my favorite redhead. All right, so you know how Maedhros goes into that dark forest to find Elured and Elurin in the year F.A. 507, right? Well in my idea, instead of finding the lost twins [since he doesn’t anyway] he stumbles upon a girl that has a gift that is said to be VERY rare among our lovely Elvesesses. This is as far as I got in a summery [if I were to actually write this story]: “To what lengths will Maedhros go, to protect a young Elfling from the menacing clutches of Morgoth? What if this Elfling has a gift that is said to be a 700-year-old myth? Find out in Ar-feiniel’s new story: the Listener…” Well, something along those lines. The wording is still a bit weird; I have to work on it. And it might be a bit hard to do, for I am still deciding whether to do this is first person or not and all of that…you know, I might need help on this…seeing that this chick can…Oh, before I forget! I loved your Arena: The Legolas Fangirl Edition chapter! It was SO funny and random! I laughed all the way through it! Especially when Aragorn choked on a pretzel and when Cirdan said, “Manwe’s blow-dryer!” * Laughs * I use a phrase something like that but I say, “CIRDAN’S BEARD!!” * Runs away, screaming, from computer being chased away by an angry Cirdan * EEP! I must flee!!
