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 . . .

I enjoyed reading this. Short but creepy. Keep writing!

Summary: How did Elrond and Celebrian get together? This is one theory! (Diary format again i'm afraid- seems to be my best type...)

Each chapter will be a section from either Celebrian or Elrond's diary, related to the same subject . I may even add other elves' diaries to the story, let me know what you think.

Confused or think it doesn't work? Let me know!

You're right, she does sound young! But I don't mean that negatively, she probably would have been. It does also give great chances for character development etc.

Great story, great format. Keep writing.

Author's Response: thanks! i am going on the principal that el has a lot of experience- orphaned,brother dead and all events leading up to that. my bree hasnt really left lorien much, so she has been pretty sheltered and is quite childish fr her age...

Reviewer: Sil Greenleaf Signed
Date: 16/10/08 Title: Chapter 3: Offer Accepted -Elrond

Another great chapter. I think its a really good idea to include the diaries of other elves. It would remove the chance of this being too repetitive (sorry, I can't think of the right word.)

About this chapter . . I really liked the beginning and the job offer as a story. All I could say is that maybe if the chapters were a little longer, that could maybe add to the story. Other than that, loved it.

Keep writing!

Author's Response: cool. methinks the other characters wil enter once el and bree start to get to know eachother- galadriel for instance probably knows more than they do at the time... XD

Date: 13/10/08 Title: Chapter 1: Job Offer - Elrond

I really liked this extract. It has an oddly arrogant tone which I like in Elrond. Can't wait to read your view on Celebrian!

Author's Response: hehe thanks! i think you will probably find her to be more naive- younger sounding if that makes sense, but heck, read and enjoy!

I think lots of us here feel this way (without meaning to speak on behalf of anyone!). I certainly hope that there is something besides this world, and if its as beautiful as Tolkien's elves and their world seem to me, then thats even better.

Certainly an interesting piece of writing and well worth thinking about.

Author's Response: Thanks, yeah, I hope that elves are real. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed my writing. I never thought I'd be doing essays on here, but I'm opinionated and that's what comes out the easiest.

Most certainly like!

It doesn't really matter if poetry rhmes to me, although if it adds to the piece it can be nice. The most important thing is the meaning which you have certainly captured. Great work.

I loved the lines ;

'The girl is whispering
Tells him to go
Tells him to fly
He does
He goes
He flies'

I'm not too sure why but it worked really well.

Keep writing!
