Summary: Unrequited love. I hate it, yet love it. It gives you a chance to watch from afar, and wish without being caught up in the action.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
You speak for all of us who have had a crush on someone who doesn't return the same feelings. Unrequited love can make you feel like you are floating on a cloud but it can also smother that joy when the reality sets in. You portray both the highs and lows of love unanswered.

Author's Response: Thank you for enjoying! I have had a very hard week trying to figure out my feelings for someone, and trying to learn more about myself and them. Unrequited love plays such a role in many many stories, and even more so in real life. It feels terrible at the moment, but when you get what you want it usually turns out to be not that great after all.

Summary: "I’m not sure exactly why this whole thing wasn’t freaking me out more, but it may have something to do with the fact that the last thing that happened to me in London was that I was shot. Death has a certain way of putting perspective on things." Legolas/OC

Title: Chapter 1: Prologue Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
OK I'll admit, I'm a sucker for a Legolas/OC story. There's not much to go by yet so I'll wait to comment until you write more. I'll definitely return though. By the way, who's gonna clean up that mess? lol

Author's Response: I'm glad you reviewed, and hopefully you won't have to wait too long for an update.

Title: Chapter 1: Once in a Blue Moon Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
This was absolutely beautiful. It's like you were in my head. Thank you so much for responding. I can just imagine Orophin out on the borders and thinking of Ethiriel. He remembers the piece of paper she gave him and takes it out. His heart swoons to know she loves him too. Great, wonderful, I just can't say enough.

Author's Response: Aww...i am glad you liked it. It just something to compliment your great story :)

Very descriptive. I felt like I was watching her myself. Drabbles can be a good way to take a break from writing longer stories. However, please continue with Nimwen. I do love that story and can't wait for an update.

Author's Response: Oh don't worry, Chapter 7 of Nimwen should be up in three days at the latest. I just needed a little break, as you said. Also, I have wanted to try a drabble for a long time and I have always felt "connected" with Nessa (obviously due to having the same name) Glad you enjoyed it! =)

Welcome and congrats on your first story. I think it has potential. I feel bad for Elrohir being the one to have to tell Elrond about the accident. I get the feeling he's gonna to be pretty upset.

Author's Response: Whoa thanks, i didn't think anyone would read it that fast. thanks, any constructiove criticizm and please be honist

Title: Chapter 5: Broken fevers and broken hearts Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Well, you asked for my honest opinion. I am no professional so I cannot critique this too much. Maybe a beta reader can better help you with that. Now about the story, you did make me think about Elrond raising Aragorn. It is said that elves don't get sick. But Aragorn is human, mostly. I began to ponder the thought of Elrond having to know something about human sicknesses and how to cure them if he was to be responsible for Aragorn's upbringing. It might have proven to be quite challenging in the beginning. Aragorn had to learn to live with the elves just as much as Elrond had to learn about raising a young human. Interesting. Continue on and let's see where this goes.

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?

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
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...

Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
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.
