Bio:
Sil Greenleaf is a young writer whose family despises all things LotR related. This makes it difficult for her to continue her passion. However, she has succeeded in learning Quenya (secretly, at night) and writing the odd story/poem. Very few of these are anywhere near ready for pubication. She is very traditional but will be open-minded when reading less traditional stories. Above all, she would love reviews for any of her work, even if you hated it!

Now for a little on Sil as a character. She is not, as many of you may presume, one of the seemingly endless wives of Legolas. She just isn't creative enough to come up with her own name, and, yes, she is aware that it is the translation of Legolas' name and not his surname. Sorry about that. She would, however, approve of a marriage to a relative of his, perhaps his less feminine son . . .

Author's Response: Thank you for the review, i'm so glad you enjoyed it. i have to say it had my favourite characters in aswell but as these change all the time its not hard to include them!!! i'm always one for happy endings even if there is vast amounts of angst in the meantime. thanks again!

I thought this poem was very moving and something a lot of us here can understand. Wouldn't we all love to escape to another world?

I also love the imagery of the once royal halls, though I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that.

(Sorry about this, but it's received, not recieved.)

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, Sil, and also thanks for the spelling correction! i'll remember to correct it.

I enjoyed this, it was well written and had some beautiful language.

All I would say is that speech should begin on a new line and always end with a punctuation mark before the speech mark.

If I'm really being picky, her speech in the last paragraph is just a little confusing and the use of the word 'bore' to mean 'produce' (which I presume you mean) is somewhat uncommon.

Sorry if I'm being too negative, I really did like it and hope you keep this story going. Well done and keep writing!

Author's Response: Thank you! i'm glad you liked it and i didn't realise that i didn't put the punctuation in! i'll sort out the spacing and i'll get the next part ASAP! thank you for reviewing!

Reviewer: Sil Greenleaf Signed
Date: 01/11/08 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2

Well written indeed. Be proud!

Just one small criticism this time! (sorry) In the second paragraph, the word dear is used twice very close together which sounds a little odd. But this is nothing, I loved the paragraph, and the whole story.

I would also add that these chapters are pretty short . . not necessarily a criticism as the writing is amazing, but it would probably improve your stories to add to and develop each chapter further.

I loved the final sentence! Just had to say that. Keep writing!

Author's Response: Thank you! it means so much that you enjoyed it; i write to entertain so im glad it's entertained! i really love to write so i like to recieve things that i can work on. Really glad you enjoyed it, thank you!!

Wow, this was great! A very tasteful and amazingly written piece. I particularly loved the beginning with a very young Legolas.

All in all, a greatly enjoyable and moving piece of work. Well done and keep writing!

Author's Response: Thank you. I love it when a reader uses the word amazing in connection with my work. :o) I love elfling Legolas. In my mind, he's so adorable, even when he's sad. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed reading this, and you can bet I'll keep writing.

Wow, these are good. I write a lot of poetry myself so I know how hard it can be to get those rhymes, but this is great! I particularly liked 'Thoughts on a world of Grey' and I loved the final line in 'Gandalf and Mordor's fire'. Keep writing!

Author's Response: Last night when I posted this, I was in a dark mood and nedded to get out so I wrote Gandalf and Mordor's fire, showing both sides and the lies that Mordor told people. I mostly thought of Gollum when I wrote it. I meant for 'Thoughts on a world of Grey' to be a poem but prose flows more easily to me. I like it. Thanks for reviewing and I hope I hear more from you.

I love this new peom too, particularly the verse beginning with the line 'When did I get lost?'

I also LOVE the lines 'I look out and sigh. But I am fine.' It really makes you think.

Keep writing!

Author's Response: I'm glad you like it. I saw you were online and I'm glad I checked my e-mail. That was completely out of my head in five minutes. I guess I just needed to write. Thanks!
