Sorry about almost chokeing you. I get really random sometimes. I was going to Jeopardy but was like, "Eh, that's not random enough. What's funnier then Jeopardy. Oh! I got it! Are You Smarter then a Fifth Grader! Perfect! I just have to change it..."
Hmm, I go from being choked to choking people in a week, interesting.
No, Legolas is mine! I will fight you for him! * Puts up fists in boxing-stance *
Eh, the guy that is going to do Edward in the movies is not as hot as Edward is supposed to be. I was kind of dispointed when I started seeing the pictures. Oh well.
Really? Wacky stories? I cannot wait for them. I'll deffenetly (did I spell that right?) keep me eagle-eyes open for them.
Oh, that's the pigs name! I could see and hear it but couldn't demember the name! le hannon.
I would tell you another story but I have to go to bed now.
Narmarie mellon nin,
Author's Response: Yeah, Smarter than a Fifth Grader is definitely (that's how you spell it) funnier than Jeopardy. Ah, so we're going to start a war over Legolas. Bring it on! *Boxing stance instantly acquired.* Bring it on! Well, if the vampire was supposed to be hotter, maybe I should read the books. Hm . . . Yeah, I don't know if their wacky, well, yeah they are. Just keep watching me . . .
An LotR Talk Show. Hmmm, this could get interesting and creative. As well as random and amusing. May I add a interview with Haldir on his opinon on dieing in Helm's Deep?
Author's Response: Sure! Go ahead and write about anything you want to!
Great start. Funny and random, love it. Especially the Nazgul...opps! I mean...Nazgurl part. I cannot wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Wow thanks!
* Laughs *
Nice lesbian line.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, Ar-feiniel :D
Loved it! Best one yet!
* Claps *
Darkness and torture rule!
Author's Response: Thank you, thank you *bows* It just came to me. My muse was definitely with me last night when I wrote it.
I think this is a great start. I love how you have four competely different characters. That should get interesting when they get to Middle-Earth. I also like how you have Nick and Lanie in a fight already, nice. Good job. I will look forward to reading the next chapters.
Author's Response: Mae Govannem, Mellon-nin! Thank you for this wonderful first review. It makes me want to post more of the story.
*Chuckles * No problem. I try to do that for fellow writers. I’m sorry but I just have to quote Aragorn on this: “I give hope to others. I keep none for myself.” I am glad you want to post more, it is a great beginning to a wonderful story. I am also glad that I have inspired you; it’s what I’m here for.
What is the english translation for what Aragorn and Glorfindel are talking about? I would find it myself, but I am lazy today.
Way to go, Glorfindel gets to rescuse Frodo! In my opinion, PJ should have given that scence to Fin instead of Arwen.
Great so far, keep going!
Nick is hilarious! I cannot wait for more!
Author's Response: Here's the translation: Dartho guin Berian. Rych le ad tolthathon. Stay with the Hobbits. I will send horses for you. Hon mabathon. Rochon ellint im. I'm the faster rider. I'll take him. Andelu i ven. The road is too dangerous. Frodo fîr. Ae athradon i hîr, tûr gwaith nîn beriatha hon. Frodo is dying. If I can get across the river, the power of my people will protect him. I didn't add the translation to keep the feel of the story, and yes, although the storyline of this will follow the movies more than the books, I still felt it was important not to change this scene from the book. I understand why PJ changed it in the movies, but it doesn't have to be that way all the time. thanks for the review. I'm glad you like NICK.
Funniest chapter yet, love it!!
"Uh...uh, in the name of Aslan, back off!"
“What the f—!” “—alling leaves!”
I also like your portrayal of Legolas!!
*Salsaing to the keyboard* Hey, I could get used to this!
LOL! This is great, Luna! Don’t worry; I won’t hold anything against you for Five-Point Touching me. I’ve dealt with worse. And, besides, it’s a lot of fun! I get to dance everywhere I go! YAY! ;)
*Laughing* New Jersey Italians! I love that line! I love the Dance-Off spin, too! Oh, I justed loved this all together. Funny, some threatening, random, silly, some dancing, funny…
Thanks for contributing Luna!!
P.S. Oh, and does skipping count as dancing?
Yikes! Hey guys...I regret to inform you that I, er, tried to fix the format of Caller's chapter and it, uh, deleted half of it on me and I can't get it back. *Doges Ice-Cream Globs* Please don't hurt me!
To Caller: Do you have that chapter backed up?
I’m really sorry!
I think this a great start for your first fanfic. I like your writing style and the dialogue is great. I like how you describe things. Such as movements, emotions, and thoughts. I also like how you included pets for the Hobbits in this story. I love Diamond and Pippin’s relationship – it’s cute.
Aw, what’s wrong with Pippin? Is he going to be okay?
Author's Response: Thanks for your great comments! I love delving into the relationship between Pippin and Diamond- they're two of my favorites! I thought that since Hobbits (I just realized that was supposed to be capitalized-thanks!) live so closely alongside nature, it would be only fitting for them to have pets (plus, I love animals!). As for Pippin...you'll have to wait and see! :)
The emotions and characters are portrayed perfectly! Nothing slashy at all -- I love it! Keep up the good work!
P.S. Pippin is going to get better, right?
Author's Response: Thanks! This chapter in particular was difficult to write because I generally spend most of my time dwelling on Merry and Pippin when I'm planning out my strories, so I have to admit that a lot of this was spur-of-the-moment, but I think a lot of emotional stuff is that way. And about Pippin... I seem to have this odd obsession with making my favorite character in the whole world suffer horrendously. I'm really not a bad person, I promise! :) I really enjoy getting reviews, so please keep them coming!
Hey, I have an obsession with torturing my favorite character too! *Pulls on Legolas’ ear*
Anyway. On a more serious note: Aw, this chapter was so sad -- but so sweet as well! I loved the flashbacks. Especially the Nellie and Pippin one. Again, the emotions are written remarkably. I really do feel bad for Faramir and Nellie. I just want to hug Faramir. And I don’t hug. Um, just something I noticed: ‘ Fair did not respond. He simply continued to sob into her dress. She paused a moment, then continued in the same quiet voice, “Do you to be alone?” ’ – I think you missed a word. Is it supposed to be “Do you -want- to be alone?” Or “Do you -need- to be alone?”? Overall, very, very good job, Traveller! I really liked this chapter a lot. Best one yet! Brava, brava!
Author's Response: Thanks for pointing that out- it's fixed now. I guess that's what I get when I start typing so fast that I don't take the time to go back and edit. When I sat down to write the Nellie-Pippin flashback, I had absolutely no idea what it was going to be about- I just knew that I had to have one. I'm glad you liked my very spur-of-the-moment idea. I think it turned out pretty cute, myself. Hey, be nice to Legolas! (Lol). I guess I'm one to talk, though, because when the plot bunnies attack, Pippin suffers! Thanks for the comments and keep reading and reviewing! -Traveller
I really loved this story, Travller. It was truly amazing beyond words. The message that is sends and everything is really beautiful, thank you so much for posting it. I am so glad Pippin finally got better; I was beginning to think that he wouldn’t make it! I absolutely loved the Beach part, it was incredibly moving and everyone was portrayed perfectly! A terrific ending to a wonderful story! This is going in my favorites, congratulations! I cannot wait for more stories by you. I will be sure to read and review. Yeah, now you’re stuck with me. :P
P.S. I think you are allowed to use song titles/lyrics as part of a fanfic, because I have and I'm not in Jail. *Looks around and then knocks on wood* Others have too...
Author's Response: LOL. I'm perfectly ok with being stuck with you! One condition though: you must keep reviewing, the longer the better! :) I love reviews, they absolutely make my day. I couldn't kill Pippin, I just couldn't. I love him waaaaay too much! Thank you for answering my question about song lyrics. I'm really glad you liked the vision scene- I thought hard about how I wanted to portray it. I really wanted Pippin to see Boromir again, and I just couldn't resist putting Theoden in there, because I think he knew that, even though he told Merry not to fight, he went anyway. I thought that Theoden would be proud of Merry's actions rather than dissapointed in them, and so I needed a way of letting Merry know that. In the next story in the series, I will put in a scene where Pippin actually tells Merry about his vision. I'm going to have to think over for awhile just how I want to do it, though, to make sure the emotion comes out perfect. Thank you so much for your compliments; that my story left you speechless makes me happy beyond words! Check out my short story, "In a Name", about how Pippin got to be called Pippin! Let me know what you think. Thanks a lot, -Traveller PS. Has anyone ever seen One Tree Hill or A Cinderella Story. Because I live in Wilmington, NC where they are currently filming One Tree Hill, and I swear on my life that I just saw CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY in the grocery store tonight. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOTNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I sort of guessed that your characters were your true identities. My characters are a lot like my self. I feel somewhat honored that you would trust me enough to tell me the truth. Fear not, your true identities are safe with me! I shan’t tell a soul!
Gimli’s Song is pretty cool. Did you come up with that yourself or is that a real song?
I like Anna and Emily’s reactions to seeing Aragorn and Legolas. I would have fainted if I saw them. Legolas as Shakespeare, I did not see that coming. ‘Tis an interesting portrayal on him -- I like how it is different. Wow! I did not know Legolas could speak Italian; Let alone learn how to sing it, Opera style. I learn something new everyday!
Author's Response: LOL! the song Gimli sang is an Ozzy Osbourne song. Legolas can speak Italian in my books and sing opera, too! I'm glad that you will keep our secret safe! I probably would have fainted if I had seen Legolas and Aragorn as an opera singer and a therapist as well.
Oh, ok, I see how it is. You don’t respond to my reviews anymore.
* Pouts *
I mean, I threaten you a few times, take my picture of Maedhros off, cuddle with Legolas and you decide to stop talking to me?
* Taps foot against floor, waiting for an answer *
No, I’m just kidding. I’m not that callous!
I had another nightmare last night – that was fun. I woke up and Legolas wasn’t there to “Fight away all of my fears”. Is he spending this week at your house? Hmm, I wonder where Maedhros is at night…
P.S. Merry, Pippin, and I are planning to start a huge snowball fight in the Shire, you want in?
Author's Response: I just found your review! I mean, come on! *Smiles* It's alright. I definitely want in on the snowball fight! Fei, if you want to tell me about the nightmare, all you have to do is e-mail me. I'll listen. Legolas only wanted to see me for a day and he's hurrying over right now:)) I mean it about the e-mailing, Fei, I will always listen - I've got the time, believe me! And even if I didn't, you're special to me - you're my best friend here. - Dae
I used to play a game much like "Telephone" but it was just called "Whisper Down The Lane” I remember this one time, in Erestor's class, he had me and my fellow classmates play it. Oh no, big mistake on his part! The original line to pass along was, "Erestor is my favorite teacher." But it ended up when the line was over to be, "Erestor sells drugs outside of Glorfindel’s house."
Great work on this song! I loved it!
Author's Response: *Laughing* Glorfindel is right beside me now, laughing his golden head off. *Whispers* I can't believe you don't like hugging! I mean, it's kind of nice sometimes. *Snuggles with Glorfindel* Just kidding:)) Okay, I don't want to gross you out, I mean, it's cold and I wanted to spend the night with a friend. Thanks for chatting!
1) Oh, so you go from cuddling with Legolas to snuggling with Glorfindel in one night? Nice...
2) I’ll tell Pip that you are joining us in the biggest snowball fight ever this year!! As soon as I find him… For some reason I can never quite locate him when I want to, he just pops up here are there.
Fei (calling out behind her): Heyyyyy Pippinnnnn, I have a nice tasty mushroom here…
Should we start a Round Robin for the snowball fight or something?
3) Are you still thinking of diabolical things to do to me for “Arena: The Legolas Fangirl Edition”? Or am I supposed to be writing Fei VS. Daewen Part II?
4) I would tell you about my nightmare but I honestly forget it now. Next time one scares me like that one did, I’ll be sure to e-mail you about it.
I really am glad that you’re here – I don’t have to hold as much as I did in now. I might not show it, but you really are special to me too…(Okay, why is it that when I try to be appreciative, I sound like a stalker?)
P.S. Have you seen Maedhros around? He disappeared…I haven’t seen him since LotR Jeopardy. I asked Fingon and Maglor where he was, but neither knows. I fear for him…
P.P.S. I finally got a picture of Legolas! Well, sort of...
Author's Response: 1. Who says I wasn't snuggling with both at the same time? Hm???? 2.Definitely Round Robin! That's a great idea! *Rubs hand together with evil grin* Oh, yes. 3. I have thought of some things to do to you . . I just need to add some more things to it. I liked the new one you did. You captured my essence. Oh, and the second part of Jeopardy was interesting. Dancing Balrogs; I never would have thought of that. 4.You're not being a stalker. I know what you're trying to say. I saw your new picture. Interesting. My sister likes penguins. No, I haven't seen Maedhros but I'll tell you when I do. Last night Elladan and Elrohir dropped by and I was so busy having fun with them. We kind of set fire to my couch but, um, it's okay now. I think. Anyway, have a good night and I hope you dream a good dream with Legolas in it. :Dae
This has nothing to do with this story (Sound familiar?). I just want to comment on your picture of Elladan. I don't know where this came from but I was just looking at it, and I remembered seeing that picture a few times when I looked up Maedhros on a "Google Image" search. It came up as Fingon; Maedhros was in it too. Yummy. But, since this isn't Fingon, we can say that it was Maedhros and Elladan (In a non-Slashy way) just because we can and it has both of our favorite Elves in it. Sorry, that was random. I just felt like sharing that with you.
Author's Response: Thanks. It's nice to hear from you. I'm in the middle of writing a story, I think it's very promising. It'll be posted in February. Dae.
