Heart of Stone by luthien85 Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 72]

The March warden of Lorien was never the proud and cold elf that he is now. An unexpected discovery scarred him forever, turning his heart into stone. Never again did he trust nor believed in the affairs of the heart.

Calavénë was the lady in waiting for Lady Galadriel. Her stature and purity were her pride and glory. She lost her heart to him through an unexpected twist of fate.

What will it take for Calavénë to convince Haldir of her love? What will Haldir make her wager in return for his trust?

This is Heart of Stone, the story of Haldir and Calavénë.

Title: Chapter 26: The Letter Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I am not just on the edge of my seat, I'm on the edge of my roof. I swear I'll jump too if something bad happens. OK, you know I'm kidding. Great chapter by the way. Awesome cliffhanger. Get that computer fixed quickly. Oh and by the way, Legolas needs to get a new bird. What did it do, stop to eat too many field mice along the way? HELLO. There's a letter to be delivered. Thank goodness Haldir made it in time, at least I hope he did.

Author's Response: I don't know what happened to Legolas' hawk. Maybe it found some sexy feathery female to entertain him? I cant say whether Haldir made it in time or not. We will have to see how my twisted mind will work soon lol. we do post at the same time don't we lol.. well great minds think alike :D thanks for your review!

Cool looking flower. Is this something that grows where you live? I've never seen anything like it. I wish I'd had the ability to speed up pregnancy. Those last couple of months were a bitch. Anticipating the next chapter.

Author's Response: No, i found it searching through the net. It grows in China :) her body is responding in a way that is out of her control, ready to expel the life out of her. let us hope she makes it :)

O.K. I'm going to give you a chance to redeem yourself for Calavene's sake. Actually, I could see this going either way, but I will not try and guess what will happen. I just enjoy being left out on the ledge waiting for an update ;-) I'm excited to see what you will do next. Great cliffhanger. Great chapter. Yea Orophin (for finding the flower). I still say it's all the hawk's fault for taking too long to deliver the message lol.

Author's Response: go either way? care to share what you think will happen? Let's see if you have the power of foresight like Elrond lol. yeah, I'm with's all the hawk's fault! Damn those mice or female hawk :D

Title: Chapter 29: Return to Lorien Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I knew you would do it. I had a feeling she would die. This is so sad. Haldir never had a chance to truly be with her and now she's gone. She is gone right? I mean, you're not going to turn this into some 'Carrie' movie with a creepy hand coming out of the grave, grabbing Haldir and pulling him into the dirt? Oh... uh... sorry, that's the horror movie lover in me coming out. Now I'm worried for Haldir. I hope he will not fade from grief and leave his son behind. This is great. It's not often a story does not end in happily ever after, though it's not over yet, I know. I must admit, I love how your mind works. Great chapter but very sad : - (

Author's Response: She is gone... :P Haldir won't fade since his son has become is beacon of hope. My mind is a mysterious maze... you'll never know what you will find at the next corner... but i think the ending will leave you guys satisfied :)

Aaawww. I love the interaction between Haldir and his son. So sweet. Just when I get that warm fuzzy feeling, you bring in some mystery. I cannot wait to read the next chapter.

Author's Response: just two more chapters! hang in there and all will be answered :)

Title: Chapter 31: Happy Birthday My Son! Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
What just happened? I must know soon. One more chapter to go. This is very exciting. Love Mae. He is so cute and so much like Haldir. This was a very sweet chapter with his uncles and Gimli and the Hobbits. I can't wait for the end.

Author's Response: Hehehe..epilogue will be up soon :) hang in there and thanks as usual for being my loyal reviewer!

Title: Chapter 32: Epilogue Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Yea! You brought her back. Hey if Glorfindel can do it why shouldn't Calavene. Very sweet ending. All is right with the world once again. It's been fun reading and following along with your work and I can't wait for more from you.

Author's Response: Well maybe her sacrifice is not to the grandiosity of balrog slaying but still the love of a mother for her child is equally if not more impressive :) thanks for following me until the end :)

Title: Chapter 1: First Impressions Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I found nothing confusing but rather suspenseful. Can't wait to read more on this story. Great writing. I'm hooked and look forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you, the next chapter will be in shortly I promise you. One question, are the images too graphic, I have never used graphic images in a story before?

Title: Chapter 1: First Impressions Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
They are small and some details are hard to make out. Personally, I find them in good taste. Just remember, less is more. I'm not sure how to do images or I would try it in my own stories.

Author's Response: I no they are small, but this site only allows 200x200 for the size otherwise they would be bigger.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter One- The Beginning Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
ok I'm interested. Don't worry about the Faramir/Eowyn thing. I'm sure he had a life before he met her. After all, there's a reason they call it 'fiction'.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am in the process of Chapter Two right now. I am glad you like it, and thank you for understanding about his before life =)

Title: Chapter 2: Chapter Two- Brushed Aside, Yet Loved? Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Your story has potential. I have not read many about Faramir before the Ring War, especially his childhood. I think it is interesting and I look forward to more chapters. If you don't mind though, I'd like to make a suggestion. It's something I myself have been guilty of doing, being a first time fanfic writer. It would make a better visual for the reader if you explained their surroundings a little more. For instance, where are they, when are they and what does it look like, smell like, feel like, etc. It's surprising what a little background detail does to enhance one's imagination. I am no expert by a long shot. It's just something I thought would help me understand the scenery better. Good job though. Keep writing.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for liking it and reviewing =) And any suggestions are ALWAYS welcome! That is a good idea... I will absolutely work on that! Tank you so much! =)

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter Three- A Daring Plan Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I think this is a good build up of what's to come. Nimwen seems desperate to find her independence and she's taking Faramir along for the ride. I'm eager for more.

Author's Response: Thank you so much L8Bleumr for always commenting on my stories! Chapter Four should be posted by Sunday if I can =)

Title: Chapter 4: Chapter Four- To Spar Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
What happens??? I'm not worried. Nimwen seems like she can hold her own, but I'm still biting my nails while I wait for the next chapter. Your writing has greatly improved. Great job. Keep it coming NessaMahtar.

Author's Response: =) I consider that a great compliment, thank you so much for reading and enjoying! The next chapter is on its way!! =)

Title: Chapter 5: Chapter Five- The Stakes are Raised Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Nimwen is one kick-ass chick but has she bitten off more than she can chew? And now she's realizing how she feels for Faramir right before a duel to the death. It's almost too much to take. I must know what happens and soon.

Author's Response: Chapter six is in progress and should be coming soon! Thanks for always reading and reviewing so positively! =)

Title: Chapter 6: Chapter Six- To the Death Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Somebody do something! I think what is drawing me to your story is seeing our heroine grow in her fighting abilities. Many stories start off with our female friend already being a seasoned warrior. It is refreshing to see her learn her trade. This chapter was a very good first example of how cruel sword fighting and training can be, especially for one just starting out. But I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for an update. She won fair and square. Who's this guy think he is?

Author's Response: Thank you! Those stories with perfect heroines usually bother me, because they aren't very realistic. I try to make Nimwen a normal girl with some strengths, and realistic weaknesses. Chapter Seven is on the way!
Date: Aug 14 2010
Title: Chapter 7: Chapter Seven- Saved Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I am glad to see she is alive, but how badly hurt is she? Most mysteriously, what was her dream about? Good suspense going of here.

Author's Response: Thanks! More will be coming soon... with answers and new problems in abundance...

Title: Chapter 8: Chapter Eight- Mute Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Ah, finally the kiss. I can't wait to see what happens next. I've been wanting to see these two express their feelings.

Author's Response: Finally is right! I have been dying for them to kiss for forever, and yet how it happened truly surprised me. The next chapter will be coming soon with the aftermath of that impulse! Glad you enjoyed and thanks for reviewing!

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I can imagine Faramir would have felt strongly to protect his brother's good name. I think this relates to real life also. It seems people don't have much to say until someone does something wrong and then it's talked about for weeks. It's unfortunate the positive is not looked at with the same attention. Good story.

Author's Response: thanks! it annoys me also that the good things go unnoticed, while the bad is always what gets the gossip. i think we need to celebrate the good more, as well! thanks again for the review!

Title: Chapter 1: Breaking the Rule Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
This one is different. Wizards obviously need a lot of rules. I especially like the Lady Gaga punishment, though I'm not so sure she could be considered a muggle. Oh and BTW, the NEW Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando is pretty cool. Great set up. It looks just like Diagon Ally and the rides are great. I ate my first traditional English breakfast (blood sausage...yuk). If you like Harry Potter, you'll like this place.

Author's Response: Gaga is borderline muggle and witch/wizard lol. i know about the park. I just have to have money to go there lol. hopefully when i start working next year i can make enough to go there

Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 11 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I am thoroughly enjoying this story. I am in love with your portrayal of Legolas. He is wild and unpredictable. It is a side of him I have not seen before and it makes perfect sense. I am so glad you decided to continue with your story and cannot wait to read more. You are a wonderful writer and I am hooked.

Author's Response: Thank you L8Bleumr -that view of Legolas comes from his irritating cheerfulness on Caradhras, and then he stops singing at Nimrodel and cannot translate the lament for Gandalf from sorrow, and then is so light hearted at other times. He changes quickly and of course Tolkien himself has Gandalf say the Mirkwood elves are 'more dangerous and less wise' than the Noldor Rivendell elves. As you say, it makes perfect sense!! You are very kind to say such nice things and I am flattered that another writer whose work I like, thinks so too.Just for you then. Next chapter.

Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 12 Pippin Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I usually know what to say when I review but you have left me speechless. The interaction between all of the characters is so genuine. I find myself wishing that more of these moments between them all were in the books or in the movies. Legolas and Gimli are superb. Then you throw in the Hobbits and it is like the story within the story. I can't say enough. From one author to another... I bow with hand over heart. You are a true artist ziggy.

Author's Response: Well... that was so nice it left me a bit speechless. Thank you. I am flattered. I suppose Tolkien focused mostly on the hobbits and I always felt a bit starved for the others. I like the gap fillers and Pippin's voice is very strong in my head. A few more of those coming up but the next chapter is very hard for Legolas.
