Poor Brandon. I like this story. Humour, Drama, Adventure; it's all in there. Your writing is improving as the story progresses. Keep the chapters coming! Good luck with MEFA!

Second Chance by Narya Rated: PG-13 half-star [Reviews - 150]
Summary: When fifteen-year-old Anna loses her sister in a freak horseriding accident, she has no way of knowing that Izzy has been given another chance to live and love. However, the afterlife works in mysterious ways; soon Anna is plagued by dreams that link her to a young woman from an age long, long forgotten, and to a blue-eyed foal that she has a nagging feeling she should recognise...

A response to Dunedain Ranger of the North's "Animal Transformations" challenge. Rated PG-13 for character death, emotional content and some mild language.

Title: Chapter 31: Epilogue Reviewer: Ndil Signed
I've been out of fanfiction for a while, but I am so glad I found this story again! It's one of my all time favourites, but evenso I had forgotten how good it really was. Now I remember. Thank you for writing it.

Title: Chapter 1: "Of Plant Pots, Siblings and Mad Uncle Tim" - Narya Reviewer: Ndil Signed

I don't think I can respond to a review directly, so I'll submit my thanks this way.

To Kitt Otter: It is hard isn't it? But at least now I finally can read the original English books, I love it. So much is often lost in translations. Like the songs and poems in LOTR, a translator can never get it completely right. Good luck writing to you too!

To: xFanarix. I guess we agree then that Middle Earth's history should be incorporated in high school history classes! ;) I feel too that he left us an invitation… so let’s write on…

Title: Chapter 1: "Of Plant Pots, Siblings and Mad Uncle Tim" - Narya Reviewer: Ndil Signed
Thanks Narya!

I actually never got back to The Hobbit. Because I don't own a copy. I have started reading the Similarion a few times though. It's a bit hardcore. Do you think I should reread The Hobbit?

Summary: All the criminal offeses have been piled up against an unsuspecting fanfic writer. Petty theft of originality, 10th walker overkill, Mary Sue overkill, and the likes. Can she survive where fanfic goes to die?

Title: Chapter 1: Lower-Earth Reviewer: Ndil Signed
lol! this is good and really funny! Will I get sentenced too? ;)

Author's Response: hehe thanks. I think we ALL at some point deserve to serve a sentence, for now I am safe. But I'm sure I will find a note informing me of my lifetime sentence any day now. ;P

Summary: Sequel to Second Chance.

"Middle-earth is real. It's just...I don't know...hiding."

The Songs of War by Aralinn Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 1]
Summary: Laineth was much like her father: a loner, distrustful, easily angered, and fierce to her enemies. She has entered into an adventure that will test the very foundations of her soul and have her questions everything she thought she knew about herself.

Half-Elf / Half Skin-changer! That is an original idea and I wonder where it will be going. This could become interesting... :)

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad it sounds interesting, I actually got the idea in a crazy dream I had XD hopefully you'll like it!
