Bio:

Mae governan! Welcome to my bio!

I'm a 20-something girl from the States that is extremely passionate... and one of my secret passions is writing :) After attending college I thought my desire to write was decimated; all those long boring papers nearly killed me! However, I got caught up in an old past time of reading fanfic and suddenly I got to thinking... 'Hey! Look at all these amazing authors who are doing these awesome things! Maybe I *can* start writing again'. Thus began my renewal of writing.

BTW: My user name 'Luna' is not the Luna of Harry Potter fame... It means 'moon' in Spanish. I chose it because I only write at night, preferably by the light of the moon (plus my laptop of course;).


I cross-post on these sites as well:

Surrender by AliDawne Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 8]
Summary: This is a one shot Haldir ficlet. This is total PWP. Not Plot. No depth. Just hot sex. This is not a rape fic, but it has a force-sex feel to it, so if you don't care for Dom/Sub stories don't read. This is not really a BD/SM story either. Curious now? Read on...

WOW! I had never thought of Denethor like this!

I mean, I did think the ring warped him and he did love Faramir, but the way you put his perspective into words is quite thought-provoking. Thank you for this fine addition to fanfic :)

This story mixes Galadriel into a whole new world, the one she knew in her past life. Her experiences at Hogwarts shape her forever.

I am enjoying this story... You said you didn't want it to be like anyone else's, but luckily for you this is the first story i've read with earth kids becoming adopted-ish by an elven family :)

One issue though- Elrond's wife was named Cassandra? I think that may be incorrect. Wasn't his wife the daughter of Celebron & Galadriel? I forget the name, but cassandra doesn't sound right... sorry if i'm wrong, just my thoughts

I love that Macavity spoke to Elaura! I really hope she meets more of his kind, just so she can tell them her name, Méror’ . Nice chapter!

Author's Response: So far, I've gotten the feeling Maglor is a bit territorial. He doesn't seem to allow any other cats near his pets. Maybe that will change over time . . . Anyway, thanks for reading and the feedback. There is more on the way.

Date: 25/03/09 Title: Chapter 117: A Gift for the Drúedain

Oh dear... I finally made it to your latest chapter. I am SO sad that, like Elaura, I must employ patience and wait for your latest greatest chapter.

Hmmm... I wonder what will happen next? The trip to Rohan will continue, then Theoden's funeral, then possibly Eowyn & Faramir's wedding? Do you plan on Elaura's story continue one day at a time or will it eventually skip to the birth of the twins and then skip to Book 4 where we fnd out about that Castle? ughhhhh... I *so* want to know!

Fantastic job, by the way. I feel like I never have any real criticism for you and I know as a writer that can be mildly frustrating since you want to hear what you can improve on, but I really just lovte everything :)

Author's Response: Oh dear is right! You caught up with me! The plan is . . . mind you, the characters may have other ideas . . . the plan is to take them to Rohan, have the funeral, a *few* weddings, and the negotiations with Dunland. I *intend* to do some plot hopping at that point and get Thranduil and his party on the road to Eryn Lasgalen. In truth, I never really meant to do the trip day-by-day, but things keep happening. When and *where* the babies are born should be a bit of a surprise to everyone, including Elaura, but I won't say more about that or else I'll spoil it. I'm on my way to getting the next three chapters posted within the next couple hours.

Thanks for reading and reviewing. Thank you also for your patience. Every so often my other two books take me away from this one. One is about the Moriquendi and the other is about Elaura's family about forty years after the War of the Ring. Naturally, I have to go back and forth occasionally to keep things on track.

Hope everything is going well in your life, wish me luck!

AMAZING.

I was looking through my my reviewed stories list to find a story to finish reading when I saw you had update!!! I have no idea how I missed that!
*squeels with joy* Thank you!
I just love how you make Gandalf and Radagast speak... It really does sound like things they would say. I have no idea how you do it.

I'm looking forward to the next two chapters but I'm going to attempt to not devour them s rapidly. Thank you for commenting on my last review and telling me a little bit about the future! I appreciate it :) Happy to hear your working on a story that takes place 40 years in the future! I would love to read it sometime and hope you post it when you're finished!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Author's Response: Can you still sign up to receive emails for updated stories? I signed up a long time ago and still get them. You can opt for particular authors as well as specific stories.

As for how the characters stay in character, I have to have my mom proofread for me. If anyone says something she thinks they wouldn't, or in a way that isn't right, she sets me straight.

I will definitely post both of my other stories, but the future story will have to wait until after book four, because there are definite spoilers. The other one will come before book four as there is a lot of backstory in it for the Battle of Castle Amlug. Book three should end soon after the party arrives in Eryn Lasgalen so the end is nigh, but I won't leave you hanging.

Thanks again for reading and reviewing, I hope you enjoy the chapters I posted today.

Oh this was such a great chapter! It even almost makes me wanting to cry, knowing they will not be parted! Ah, I have no words to describe my utter happiness with this story :)

Author's Response: Aww, you're making me blush! It's good to hear from you again. Hey, if you get the chance, could you look over mps' review and let me know if you are seeing what he/she is? The last thing I want is for the story to be hard to read.

I do appreciate your insight on that particular chapter, too. As I mentioned in one of your previous reviews, a lot of folks have a definite aversion to Legolas falling in love with anyone, especially a modern woman dropped into Middle Earth. I'm really glad you are enjoying it. Thanks again for taking the time to let me know what you think of my story! Keep reading, there's a lot more to come.

Reviewer: Luna Signed
Date: 04/02/09 Title: Chapter 31: An Eye for an Eye Socket

Greetings Elaura! I looked over the review per your request and I have no trouble reading your story- it is separated well by paragraphs.

I will say, some fanfics with Legolas falling in love with a modern woman can be very silly and poorly written. Yours is not. Its interesting... I am usually very skeptical about fanfics and how storylines go, but for whatever reason, yours works. I get it.

I was even thinking "Why do I love this story so much and spend whatever free time I have reading it? In many ways, the plot could be silly and annoying. Everyone loves the main character. She bagged the hottest elf. She's super awesome at everything..." But you have written this story, thus far of what I've read, very well. I believe it. Elaura is not annoying. She slowly became good at things and there were struggles. Events are tied in extremely well to Tolkien's books. The characters are simply brought to life in a different way through your words. You've done a great job. I almost wish you hadn't done a great job & I thought of all this first ;) lol

As always, I look forward to continuing reading! I'm interested in Maglor, what further use the Vala will have for Elaura, when she'll finally end up meeting Legolas' fam in Mirkwood, Arwen showing up, and babies! Of course, I have no idea how far you have written, but you do have a hell of a lot of chapters!

Many many thanks for the time you put into this!

Author's Response: Hello again! Thank you for checking on that paragraph thing for me. I guess I'll have to wait until mps clarifies to figure out why it doesn't look right to him/her.

I appreciate your detailed critique; it's very nice to know the work I've put into the story wasn't in vain. Of course, that's not to say I don't get affirmation from all of my reviews, even the negative ones are extremely helpful. I consider those very aspects you mentioned about the plot and characterizations constantly as I write. I think my mom gets tired of me asking her after each chapter, 'is it believable?' 'Is Elaura coming off whiny?' or too smart, too talented, too confident?

I'm glad how much work Elaura has done to come into her talents is apparent in the story; I never wanted her to appear as if everything was just handed to her on a silver platter. Most importantly, I am honored you think I'm doing justice to Tolkien's original works. Sometimes being tied to his timeline is a little challenging, as readers (and me for that matter) are ready for what comes next and we all still have to wait for the day to arrive.

You came across the story at a good time. All of your expectations are in the chapters that are already posted, except she hasn't made it to Mirkwood yet. The most recent chapter I've written and intend to get posted tonight, has the funeral procession on its way to Rohan. Sadly, the end is in sight for this book, but I have a lot of book four written already.

Thanks for all of your insights and compliments. I look forward to keeping my readers satisfied for a while. Wish me luck.

Date: 08/02/09 Title: Chapter 40: ¿Cómo se llama su llama?

I adore that Macavity shows up. I'm curious- Why did you name him that? Is it pronounced Mac- Cavity???

Author's Response: Macavity, pronounced ma-ca-vi-ty with the emphasis on the second syllable, is based on a stray cat that wandered into my folks' house one day and claimed them as his staff. The original Macavity in T.S. Eliot's poem "Macavity, the Mystery Cat" and the Broadway musical "Cats" based on Eliot's works was ginger colored and a bit more dastardly than the long-haired white Macavity of my books and his short-haired, black and white namesake.

They are all, however, classic examples of the feline race. Proud, mysterious, and sometimes downright criminal in their ability to get into leftovers, steal things to hide for later play, assault and battery with thier razor-sharp claws, and utter vandalism in the form of clearing a tabletop of fragile keepsakes.

My parents' cat just appeared one day and made himself at home among their five dogs. He cleared the grounds of all manner of vermin, including mice, rats, and snakes. He was also one of those rare pets that displays a level of intelligence that is almost preternatural.

Unfortunately, he wasn't smart enough not to play in the road and came to a premature end. His spirit lives on in my books and also in a pair of kittens we now share our farmhouse with. Maybe someday, they'll make it into the story as well.

Thanks for asking, Luna. If you've never read T.S. Eliot or seen the musical "Cats", I highly recommend them.

Date: 10/02/09 Title: Chapter 49: Elaura Von Frankenstein

I'm not sure if you are aware, but 've noticed quite a few times in various chapters that quotaton marks are put in the wrong area. Example:

“Nonsense, it will be done all the quicker were I to take care of it personally,” Aragorn replied.”

I honestly don't really care about grammer as much; I get what you are trying to say. But in case you care, I thought I'd let you know.

So many interesting developments. Elaura- a Wizard! Who would have thought. Once again I am surprised that you character gains such great achievements, yet never does it seem strange or cheapened. THe story just makes sense.
Oh, but I am excited to see that Elaura has a new adversary! Peace is sweet, but conflict is fun! (Well, I am writing this review near the beginning of the chapter, in case by the end the Warden is cool with Elaura and my words seem to not make sense)

Author's Response: Actually, I do care very much. That particular typo has become a bad habit, I'm afraid. For some reason, my brain seems to think every paragraph should end in a closed quote. Thank you for letting me know there is one in that chapter. I haven't gotten around to fixing much of Book three as I'm currently writing it, but I will. I just reread a chapter in which Eowyn is cursed with contractions . . . which I try to reserve for the speech of Elaura, Dwarves, and Hobbits, for the most part.

Well, actually, Elaura doesn't tend to run across a lot of people who don't like her, but I suppose that's natural, too. She's friends with Aragorn and married to an Elf Prince; it wouldn't be to the advantage of the citizens of the Reunited Kingdom and Eryn Lasgalen to tick off the royals by picking a fight with Elaura, no matter how they really feel.

I was as surprised as anyone when Elaura's magical abilities showed up. I suppose it isn't cheesy because there is a reason for her to have them and she doesn't use them too much. She remains aware of the fact she isn't a Maia, or an Istar, and she certainly isn't hung up on whether people want to call her a wizard, a sorceress, or a witch.

Thank you very much for the review. I hope you continue to enjoy the story.

I'm also glad that you managed to figure out a way for them to head into battle... I was afraid things could get boring in peacetime. Glad to know that Gimli's ax will once again be used! :)

Author's Response: Oh, you know how it is, trouble will always crop up; there are some people who just can't stand to be happy. I'm glad you enjoyed this one. Sorry it's been so long, but I'm still writing. I won't leave you hanging. Thanks for reading and reviewing!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this:
"You thought the purple dinosaur was bad? I’ve got Smurfs, Snorks, Fraggles, and Teletubbies where he came from. You never should have tried this,” there was great anger in her voice and Aragorn and I both took a small step back; the Evil One’s fear of the beasts she mentioned was apparent and we did not wish to see anything which could strike fear in his heart." HILARIOUS.

And I thought it was great to have a chapter from Legolas' point of view and allow Elaura to show him her world.
Absolutly lovely.

Author's Response: Thank you! Legolas needed to get his feet wet in the writing arena. I have to admit, sometimes I'll reread and wonder, 'who wrote this stuff?' I'll often laugh when I'm writing, too. Is that conceited? Most of all I look forward to hearing what the readers think. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me feedback. It's a little hard knowing whether things I think are funny really are . . . no laughtrack. Thanks again for reading and reviewing.
