Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: wind rider Signed

Hahahahaha! Oh how amusing it was, put into this situation... :D I love it! Admitedly, I did read this story once, but back then I could not review... sorry. This little crack deserves many, many reviews.


Hmm. Well, it is hell for the schoolers... but I think it is even more hellish for the test-makers... To think that you must put the questions and answers all through various tests of validity and reliability with their numerous branches and conflicting theories and all... *shudder* I wondered why our Lord of Mandos here took things so easily. :D Bless him. I took a compulsory class for that dratted subject, given my major in education, and am glad that it is now long behind. I will never, ever apply to be a test-maker! :P ;)


Heheh. That was my ranting... Sorry for the out-of-context-ness. Great job, Ria, and I simpathise with you who still have to take standardised tests... I have passed that section of my life, but I think I will still face one or two more... *wince*


Will you make something more out of the 'daily living' of the Ainur - or perhaps more than one? I love such stories... I haven't checked if you have any beside this. (Hee.) I'd definitely read and review if there is more in such theme. :)

Author's Response: I will certainly try. My other two stories set in Valinor are "Family Court" and "Hiring Fair".
