Summary: A brief, oneshot thing I wrote when I was feeling incredibly cross with the way things were going on Earth. Not intended to offend anyone. This has nothing to do with LOTR, sorry =)

So true. :'(

Summary: There are many diehard Tolkien fans that complain that either Peter Jackson's films destroyed their cherished images of Middle Earth or didn't capture the spirit of Middle Earth. My answer? It could have been a thousand times worse.

Title: Chapter 1: The Power of Friendship Reviewer: atouchofhobbit Signed
I'm not sure whether to laugh, cry, or lose my lunch. It's fabulous, yet extremely nauseating. (Description of Aragorn sounds really familiar for some reason...)

Author's Response: I admit I got the "hawk-nosed Indian" description from Bakshi's animated version of Aragorn, so that's probably why it seems so familiar.

Summary: A few decades after his defeat on the Isle of Werewolves in the First Age of the Sun, Sauron goes back to Angband and after seeing Morgoth, enters a pub. A rather inquisitive balrog (who is left unnamed because Tolkien never named him *sobs*) starts to chat him up.

"Mind you, I do not live alone - looking after unlucky Glaurung's little one, Smaug, the poor baby. But he is too young to understand; only understands jewels, that one. Got him a bed of the stuff."

Awww... baby Smaug...

Author's Response: Hehehe. Thank you. I'm so happy you enjoyed this story. It's one of my favourites.

Summary: A daughter must choose between carrying a crushing secret about her recently deceased sister or saving her parents from further grief.

An off-topic short story I wrote. This one goes with my other short story Vanity, as part of a project to examine different aspects of sibling relationships. Please leave a review and be sure to check out Vanity.

I wish I could say exactly what I think, but I can't think of words that would do justice to this story. You have amazing talent.

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.

Title: Chapter 1: Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine? Reviewer: atouchofhobbit Signed
This. Is. Hysterical. Following it faithfully. I've been choking down laughter every few seconds so that I don't get the "What's so funny?" "What are you doing?" grilling. But I digress.
First off - can we please, please have an Ipod scene with Maglor? I just have this very, very vivid image of him warbling along to some of today's rock or pop songs... :)
Second off - Fair is probably the cutest little kid I've ever encountered. I wanna adopt him! - but I doubt Pippin etc. would be very happy about that... maybe I'll adopt Huan instead. :P
And in conclusion... did I mention that this is hysterical?
Lovin' it.

Bloopers happen, it's a part of the movie-making process. Lord of the Rings, epic as it is, is no exception. Here's a list of humorous sights I've seen during the films!

Title: Chapter 1: Wait, What? Reviewer: atouchofhobbit Signed
At Hollin, when the crows are coming, everyone hides while the pony stands outside, alone. Everyone hides, and when the camera zooms, nobody is there. But who hid the pony? Poor Bill.

Haha, yeah, I noticed that one. Maybe he just went behind a big rock?
Hmm. I just had a thought. Is there ever an explanation of where Bill comes from, or does he just appear?

Author's Response:

Yes, actually, there is an explanation of where Bill comes from, but it's in the book. Sam buys Bill the Pony from the pony's abusive master, Bill Ferny, in Bree.

And the big rock is a possibility! I didn't think of that...hmm...

Thanks for the review!
