I love how they thought there was nothing to see, yet things were happening all around them. Very sweet.

Author's Response: Thank you. I often have that feeling in a forest; it's gratifying to hear that the story conveyed it.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Oh wow! I must say that Eowyn is one of my favorite characters and Eowyn/Faramir are my favorite couple, but you have made me see them in a whole new light. Love how you portray Eowyn. This is how I imagine her to be once she settles in with Faramir in Ithilien. I hope she never loses that fire. I can't wait for more.

Author's Response: Thank you, L8Bleumr! Your kind words are most inspiring :) Ah, Eowyn could never completely settle down, now could she? ;) Frankly, much as I love both their characters, I always had some doubts re the peaceful uneventful bliss of their marriage. Such a couple is just bound to have some adventures, don't you think?

I can only imagine what she saw. Well, I know what she saw but... you know what I mean. It's good to be the King. I will not guess where this is leading to but my anxious thoughts see Eowyn in a delicious Gondorian sandwich. Loving this fun, exciting sexy piece.

Author's Response: Oh, yes, I know what you mean xD And yes, being King is good, and going to get only better. Well, at least for some time... Anyway, love the 'delicious Gondorian sandwich' phrase! I would have so totally stolen and used it if only they had sandwiches in Middle-earth...

You have made me go back and forth on this one. I am able to put myself in Eowyn's shoes here. At first she just wants to watch and maybe get some small compensation for it. Then she sees things differently and is even sad for them. I felt like she should be fuming mad. Then when I begin to agree with her, she flips and lets anger and jealousy in. Now I find myself back to my original thoughts. Great work. Can't wait for more.

Author's Response: Ha-ha! Your comment made me laugh with joy. To be frank, though, she's made me go back and forth too... Problem is, I guess, that the longer she watches, the more she learns, and the more complicated it all becomes. Besides, a woman's mind (let alone her heart) is not always 100% logical - and, after all, she does love the man (at least one of them), so anger is by far not the only force driving her. It would have been so much simpler if it was...

Very sweet and adorable family moment. One I imagine they will talk about for years to come. Nicely done.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. I got the idea for this while pulling up some vegetables in my parents garden and they had a lovely big cabbage and my mom once told me that there is some legend about finding babies under cabbage leaves and it snowballed outwards from there. I think they will talk about it for years to come or for as long as they want to keep the truth to themselves, LOL ;D

Title: Chapter 3: Milui ~ Friendly Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I saw your post for the other story and am following you directions to read this first. Very interesting so far. My guess is that Morroch is a dragon or related to one. I'm surprised to see you have not been reviewed so I thought I'd give you my two cents and say I look forward to catching up on your story. It may take me a while though. I am not a very quick reader and do it at a more leisurely pace. But what I've read so far is a nice change of pace from what I usually read. Well done.

Author's Response: Awww! Thank you so much for your review! I cannot tell you how happy I was to finally see one! LOL Thank you for the compliments and I think your guess *might* be right. ;) I look forward to hearing what you think about the rest of the story....which reminds me that I need to update Hervess a Iel.... :D ~ Kaisaan

Title: Chapter 5: Tiriant ~ Watchful Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
can... not... resist... button. *hehe* So Morroch is a shape shifter. Hmm. Wonder if he can shift into a human? You know, I think you could make this an original story. Change a few things, omit the LotR part and I think you have something that could possibly get published. It might even make a good childrens or young adult story. I could totally see my own daughter wanting to read something like this.

Author's Response: ROTFL! Guess you wil have to read more to find out! LOL Really? Hmmm....guess I'd have to think about that. I honestly don't agree that it is good enough to be publishable, but thank you immensely for the compliment! My 11 year old sister sure likes reading it! It is certainly something ot think about, though! I am glad you are liking the story so far and thank you for reviewing! ~ Kaisaan

Title: Chapter 6: Tirither ~ Defender Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
The battle scene was very descriptive. I got the feeling I was right there in the middle of it all. Mostly, I like how you are unveiling Morroch bit by bit. Every chapter reveals a new talent between him and Kaia. And lastly, it's good to see the twins. Looking forward to see something develop here. I only know because I read the summary of your second story.

Author's Response: Wow! Thank you! That was kinda what I was going for. I am usually not good at battle scenes at all, so I really worked on the Helm's Deep one. Glad to know it paid off! Again, thank you. I try to gradually give my characters depth. Some develop faster then others, but there is always a surprise or two (or more) in store for the readers and sometimes even for me! I just had to add the twins. Not just because I love 'em, but because the story just wasn't the same without them. LOL Ah! You cheated! *smiles* Glad you are still reading, though, even if you already know some of what will happen. That is a great compliment to me! ~ Kaisaan

I am not much of a slash reader and have only read the works of a couple authors. However, I thought you did a wonderful job with this story. You made this about more than just the 'act'. I enjoyed how you spent the time to explain the emotions before and after their coupling. That's what makes this so interesting. Nicely done.

Title: Chapter 27: Chapter 27 Fireflies Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
First of all, wonderful chapter. Ellladan's fighting over the will of the ring is so natural to the story. I'm really enjoying the flipped roles between brothers. And what can I say about my dear sweet Gimli. Such tenderness. There is no other I could see those fireflies flocking to. Secondly, I think you could touch on the ride back at the beginning of the next chapter and it would be fine. Unless you had more ideas for the Nazgul chasing them as they rode to the city, I don't think you need to make a whole chapter out of it. But then, maybe we're all just a little anxious to see Legolas back to his old self again. He's so fragile right now we are worried for him. You know I don't care which way you go. I will read anything you write and know it will be wonderful, exciting and leaving me on the edge of my seat.

Author's Response: I'm glad that is working- and I thought of you while I was writing Gimli - I have something I might post here-it's unbetad and unplished but just a fw thoughts thrown together. I dont really want to write the Nazgul chasing the to be honest- I sort of feel they are done with now for a bit, but you may be wright about having a bit- I htought I would use recollection and gradual recovery to flashback. So you get a sense of dislocation as you read. It will take a bit of time as work is mayhem!

Hey Ziggy. Playing catch up. It's been a busy summer full of family stuff, but school's back in session, which means my days are less hectic. Any spare moments I had, I used for writing, so not much time to read. As always, great stuff. I love how Legolas is slowly remembering, but not just that, he is seeing his mistakes like the Elrohir/Eomer thing. And thanks for the end notes. I have just started reading Silm and did not know that fact. You are right, it makes Gimli's gift much more important than most would think.

Author's Response: Hi L8! Glad you have caught up then -I know what you mean about using spare time to write. I am way behind in reading but as this is drawing to a finish, I amsaving all my favs to read afterwards. I need to get this done in the next couple of weeks if I can.

Title: Chapter 37: Chapter 37 The Last Deep Breath Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I really enjoyed seeing things through Pippin's eyes here. It was a nice break from all the usual tension. The end of your chapter was the best part though. I love your description of the darkness and mist. I can really feel the dread and fear as if I am actually there. Elrohir seems much different here, better, stronger, more confident. I see it in the way he comforts the men, tries to give them some of his own confidence. I feel him even out a bit as he senses Elladan's calmness. And to have him stand next to Legolas makes me see how far he has come since the beginning when there was so much animosity. They will fight together, not against one another. Makes my skin tingle a bit. Looking forward to the Black Gate.

Author's Response: It's funny how easily Pippin comes to me, his voice is the easiest to write. I'm pleased the dread got you- I wasn't sure how much to put in but you'll need that for hte next chapter! Elrohir ha really got himself back to where he wants ot be with his own state of mind I htink -the obvious love Elladan adn Legoals have for him restores his self-esteem and confidence but its fragile. Ah- so much can go wrong yet!! xx

Title: Chapter 40: Chapter 40 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Sorry it took me a while to get to this. It was Thanksgiving here in the states when it posted and things have been rather hectic.

Anyways, wow zig, I don't even know how to tell you how much I liked this chapter. One of your best by far. YOU are the only author I have ever read that uses quotes from the books in such a way that I feel like I've never read it before. Usually I see that and skip over it because it seems so repetitious, but you know how to work it in with your own story and make it seem new.

Everything in this chapter was wonderful, from Eomer wanting to protect Legolas to the Mouth of Sauron, from Elrohir at the gate to Elladan rescuing him. And that line Elro uses about his brother being his light and there has to be light to cast shadow. Absolutely gorgeous. At the end when Elladan rides to Elrohir, one of the best scenes by far. Elladan is so valiant here and I just love that. I think you could possibly have your next story with him as your main character. I'd love to see him on a more personal level, know his strengths and weaknesses, just know his story. Great great chapter!

Author's Response: Funnily enough we don't have Thanksgiving over here :) I worked really hard on this chapter so it is really really gratifying to hear you say it was the best so far. I felt it was right and recently some of the chapters have been squeezed out probably a bit too soon- just pressure of work. But I intend to go back and rework it as soon as I'm finished- and post it on Esteliel's new site. I'll move stuff over there when I'm done. I just felt Elladan fans need a bit of love too - and both of them came out of this well. Legolas' turn next chapter, which is shaping up nicely. Of course its the final battle scene so it wil lbe long but I really want to get that sense of the intensity of the battle - I htink Tolkien really skipped over it actually with Pippin getting knocked out.

Title: Chapter 39: Chapter 39 Jaws of Steel Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I knew the Nazgul imprinted these thoughts upon Elrohir's mind, but I did not think it actually happened. You have me spinning for an answer and praying that this is only a false vision imprinted upon Legolas' mind. I know it is a trap that the Wraiths are setting up and I think Legolas is part of the bait if not all of it. I'm hoping that is all this is. As many times as I hated how Elrohir treated Legolas, I never thought he had it in him to actually harm Legolas in such a devistating way and I still refuse to believe it.

Again, the way it all unfolded in this chapter was beautiful. I love how no matter what happens or how confusing things seem, Gimli is a constant earthly anchor. How appropriate that it is a Dwarf, bound to stone as they are. Oh, please don't make us wait too long. I know that everyone who reads this will be anxious to know the outcome.

Author's Response: Dont worry- Elrohir has not actually done any of this but it was his fantasy, if you remember, back on the SeaSong and so the Nazgul have shown him what they offered Elrohir. Oh- I have already writtent he next chapter and you will like that I think... I am tweaking it t make sur there are no glitches- I found some in htis and have corrected them on ffnet but not here yet! Legolas is going ot have a hard time of it in the battle ahead so be prepared!! xx

Well done again. I look forward to more of this story. Legolas and Gimli are priceless of course. You've touched on all the emotions.

Author's Response: Thank you L8Bleumr- I have been reading your story too and must review- I am always torn between reading and writing - and with a new job, I cant do both right now so its nice to have something to catch up on.

Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 Standing together Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
You know how people say something moved them to tears? Well, this chapter moved me to tears of laughter. Legolas and Gimli's bantering makes me laugh out loud. Great stuff! Elrohir is like that quiet outsider that is just waiting for someone to say something wrong. Then he's gonna be all over you. But my favorite part was the exchange with Elladan and Legolas as their horses got close and they felt the heat. *swoon* There are so many different ideas dancing through my head right now. Love, love, love this story. btw... thanks for the shout out and thank you so much for reading my stories too. I know how difficult it is to read and write. I really appreciate it.

Author's Response: Ah, thank you so much L8Bleumr - I ma so glad you laughed at this. I love Gimli - he is the easiest character to write actually, and I try not to make him a stupid cypher like he is sometimes. It was one of the things I disliked in the film- he and Legolas dont really have much development of character. Yes- I like that bit between Elladan and Legolas - you have a lot to look forward to!!!! New chapter for you because of such a nice review!!

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 The Black Ships Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Well, I definitely look forward to each and every one of your posts. I can't say that I have ever been so captivated by someone's writing before. I only wish I could be as poetic with my words as you are with yours. Another exciting chapter. My favorite line here, by far, is Legolas'. "My father would not have any fools and I am no angel." Pure Legolas. And now the sea longing begins. I would be sad if I didn't already know the ending. Then again, this is fan fiction.

Author's Response: As you say, it is fan fiction but I stay within the plot lines and write around the edges - so although it delves into relationships that are vague in the book, I will be keeping to the story....well, I say that now...!! Actually I have written this up to chapter 21 so I will post quickly but I like to slash it up a bit probably.

Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 Lust Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
If you've ever read any of my stories, you'll know I love to let things build and fester before a satisfying climax. You're right, it is more fun. Wonderful fight scene, full of anger and desire. If these two ever come together I believe they will shake the earth. Elrohir is so full of anger and sadness. I can't help but feel he might be jealous of Legolas also for being chosen by Elrond for the Fellowship instead of himself. He wants revenge over his mother's death. I also feel prejudice towards the Wood elves, and that this may play a factor in his hatred towards Legolas. Many different things boiling just below the surface with this one. This is great stuff. Just another thing... you say you've written up to chpt 21. This is what I do too. I will have practially the whole story written before I post it. As I go back and proof it, I will adjust or add. This is why I'm able to post daily. Keep it up ziggy. You are much appreciated here and a jewel on this site. ***Moe***

Author's Response: Yes, I do know- reading and enjoying thins greatly. It's funny you ask that because there is a point where Elladan considers just that. You are right about his prejudice- I hope it highlights the way the Mirkwood elves are portrayed by Gandalf and by the mainly Noldorin versions of events - I know i am implying the Great Man had a bias - he did. I am afraid I am not as disciplined as you- I have written and posted up to ch 21 on another site but wanted ot slash it up a bit so began posting here. I takes me ages to write a chapter sometimes.

Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
So far, Elrohir seems so desolate and confused. I think this last part fits his scattered moods fine. However, I could never picture Legolas being overpowered by Elrohir. Nor could I see Legolas taking over control of Elrohir. Legolas seems pained over the fact that his idol, this well known twin cannot stand the sight of him. It must hurt but not enough that he would submiss to him. I like how Gimli calms Legolas and Aragorn is the mediator. Another great chapter. Glad the glitch was fixed.

Author's Response: Thanks for the reassurance- it didn't really feel quite right that last bit so I am glad it worked. Scattered moods is a good way to describe Elrohir. You are right too, about Legolas never willingly submitting to Elrohir- it is alien to him, so what has to happen to make him do that? It does hurt him that Elrohir seems to hate him, but hate is a funny thing, isn't it?

Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6 White Wings Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Another great chapter and might I say quite a cliffhanger. Gimli seems to think it is Elladan who rescues Legolas but I know he cannot tell the difference. So I wonder if his dark warrior is Elrohir. Love the vision of black and gold hair tangled together.

Author's Response: Yes- he can't tell the difference as you say, so you might well be right!! And what would that bring? Glad you liked the last image- I was pleased with that too.

Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8 Aftermath Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Another beauty ziggy. I like the brotherly love between El and Ro. Nothing will ever break that bond no matter how dark Elrohir might become. I have just realized that I miss Gimli. It's good to see him back in the story again. Good thing he wasn't on that ship. Elrohir would probably be wearing an axe for a hat. lol. But I think what I like most is how Aragorn seems to come out of a trance after freeing the ghosts. This is a point of view I've never thought of. It makes sense that he would be taken, his life entertwined with these lost souls. For a brief time, Aragorn was not a ranger or leading the fellowship. He was a king to a ghostly army that had been lost with no leader. He took up his position and they followed him. Aragorn needed to seperate himself from all the rest I think. I love how your story opens our minds and lets us explore a different side, a deeper side not found in the original works. Very inspiring. Thanks.

Author's Response: loved your bit about gimli! And I am pleased you picked up the Aragorn theme with the Dead-I just felt the Prof left so much unsaid with them.
