Amen to that! The female characters are far too under-represented in these things. Go you! :D
Fantastic story! I love it.
Elf lords need to have fun too!
An interesting viewpoint. I like it very much.
Author's Response: Thanks. After I reread the Silmarillion, I started thinking that there must have been a time when they knew eachother as equals.
Boys and their toys...
I love it!
Cirdan is a favorite character of mine and this makes him even more so.
Thank you for this! :D
Heehee...wow. That was different. I liked it, don't get me wrong, I just am not certain what I was expecting going in to this. :P
Author's Response: Thank you, Bunny Plots. I'm glad you enjoyed this play on Lewis' wonderful original and very much appreciate the review. Thanks again!
Ahhh...these are the stories that stay with me because it shows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that elves like more than just beauty and...er...well beauty. ;)
That was great! I loved it. And Gandalf's lover is startlingly like one I created for him in one of my own stories. Even her name sounds similar. Just so you know once I do post that story, I did not steal your idea, it's just incredibly similar to yours. ;) :P
Anyway, I love to see Elrond in such situations. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, knowing he is not the impenetrable person he is made out to be so often.
This makes me happier than you can know. :D Really. We hates standardized testing, we does. Great job!
Oh. My. YES! I love you forever for this. Parody is one of my most favorite forms of comedy, and this really worked out well. Oh dear. *wipes tears from eyes*
I believe I shall be answering your challenge very soon.
:D What a delightful story! Elrond's reactions were absolutely perfect, and I love how Erestor went about drawing his own conclusions as logically and diplomatically as possible. Not to mention the memory of attempting to burp in appreciation while drinking with Dwarves. heehee. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Your review is like an unexpected Christmas present. :-) Trying to figure out how a person raised according to the norms of 'The Laws and Customs of the Eldar' would view - and react to - 'normal' human behaviour was quite challenging, but also great fun. It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed what I came up with!
All I can say, at this moment, without contributing to the round robin (which I shall do momentarily) is Thank You! :) You shall have my whole thoughts on this soon.
Author's Response: You're welcome, Bunny Plots; I'll be interested to see what you think!! Thanks for the review.
A ring can represent practically anything. Undying love, a silent promise, real friendship, commitment, but also nobility, worship or faith. There are rings that symbolize dependence, enslavement, eternity, and apparently there is one that stands for all that’s evil in this world. But let’s not forget a ring is nothing more than a piece of metal that fits nicely around a finger. It doesn’t even have to be pretty.
So don’t ask me why I ended up risking my life, going on this quest to destroy one. I mean, you can’t really blame me for getting caught up in things I don’t even believe in, right?
Be warned: this is a tenth walker fic and English is my second language. It’s possible you’ll hate this story, but don’t forget you’re not legally obliged to do so. And seriously, I really like readers and absolutely love reviewers.
I really like this, and am tending to agree with your second reviewer-don't worry about writing a tenth walker fic. It's not worth it. In fact, I think this is a delightful twist on the usual Mary-Sue/tenth walker story and will be looking for more.
Also, I love the fact that your protagonist is not the most wonderful, skillful person you would ever want to meet. It is quite refreshing to have a 'real' protagonist.
Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you! It’s absolutely wonderful to wake up and find that someone has left such a kind review. I’ll definitely write on and I’ll post more. Thanks!
I await with baited breath for your next installments. ;) Very nice, I love the way you are mixing both the movies and the books into the descriptions. Also, I have always wondered what would happen if the characters found out that in another time they were really just that-book characters. :P I was going to attempt that at some point, but now you're headed (or so it seems) in that direction I don't have to. Keep it up!
Author's Response: I am glad you came back to read the new chapters . Thank you for your second review. I do indeed mix the movies and the books. I absolutely love the books, but at some times I prefer the speed at which things happen in the movie. And I guess I just don’t have the time to write a Tolkien sized Trilogy. You made me realize I have concentrated too much on Iris her reaction to the book thing; how unfair of me! I’m going to ask the proper members of the Fellowship now how they feel about it…
I have to agree with everyone else, it is quite nice to see a story that at least tries to create what it would actually be like to be transported to another world. :) Certainly...all my girl-falls in to ME stories I would not actually write and publish because they're too Mary Sue like. :P lol. Purely for my own -ahem- enjoyment.
And the "fantasy" line was indeed spot on. :D
Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! This started off as a plot bunny that would just not go away until I started working on it and it was just a fun side project, a little crack!fic where I was determined not to get too carried away with the why and just let it carry me wherever I would though on that same note I did try to handle it with some realism instead of the usual "Woah, so cool! Where do I meet the guys?" This is for my enjoyment as well, It is meant as some fun and so I am doing my best to keep it that way and just letting the story go wherever it wants. Thanks again for your kind words, such reviews are definitely encouraging.
LOL! I know people like this... *whistles*
Author's Response: Hehe, so do I... thank you! ^^
