Rise of Angmar by Barazinbar Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 9]
Summary: Picking up where Gathering of the Nine left off, it is now the Third Age of Middle-Earth, the One Ring is lost, and Sauron is weakened. The Nazgul must go into hiding or be destroyed by the victorious Last Alliance. But vigilance cannot be maintained eternally, and evil in the form of Angmar returns, headed by the Morgoth-possessed Witch-King and his not-so-faithful lieutenant Khamul, who finds herself attracting all sorts of attention, from all the wrong people.

Title: Chapter 61: The Broken Line Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Maybe it's just me because sometimes I have a sick and twisted sense of humor, but the first part of this chapter reminded me of Monty Python humor. And I mean this in a high form of a comment. Still reading and enjoying.

Author's Response: Excellent! It is truly the highest form of compliment to have one's work be reminiscent of Monty Python.

I thought this was a very touching scene of Legolas remembering his mother and paying tribute to her.

Author's Response: thank you.

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 1: Prologue Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Good start. Once again, you have my attention. Haldir always makes a good subject.

Author's Response: He does, doesnt he? i guess cos there's not much history behind him in tolkien's book. we are always curious about things we don't know

Title: Chapter 3: Shaken Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Bad, bad Haldir. You make him seem so cruel, in a good way. His response afterward was very mean. How dare he make her cry after giving her such pleasure.

Author's Response: I would rally like to think what Haldir did was an exaggerated response to what he was feeling. What was he feeling? I figured i'd leave the details to you guys. Haldir's personality in this story at times might seem a little out there but whose to say we won't act that way if we had the same experience he did. thank you for following this story too. I know my language can be a nightmare at times since English is not my native tongue. Still, it's no excuse. Will try to write better!

Title: Chapter 4: Training ensues Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
The fact that he fessed up and took responsibility for his actions proves that he still has a heart. On the other hand, Calavene is still innocent because she could totally take advantage of the situation. At least that is how I view things. Looking forward to the next chpt. By the way, regaliaria's review cracks me up. 'Snake in his leggings', good one.

Author's Response: Yes he will definitely own up to the fact he did a mistake. He's the marchwarden. As for Calavénë, this new found pleasure will actually be the unravelling for her...

Title: Chapter 5: Missing Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I like that last quote. The poor girl could be bleeding to death or captured by Orcs for all he knows and he just calls her a nuisance. Such a Haldir moment. Good cliffhanger. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Author's Response: Well she did add the extra work for him lol. There's many layers to haldir and i hope in the next chapters perhaps i could introduce another side to the elusive elf

Title: Chapter 6: Orcs' conversation Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Close call with the Orcs. Sounds like Haldir is not going to be the master of his domain for long. I like how your story is unfolding. I just wanted to let you know that I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow and I don't know if I'll have internet where I'm going. So if you don't get a review from me in the next two weeks, I haven't forgotten. Keep up the good work. Your writing is improving quite a bit.

Author's Response: You'd be surprised how well Haldir can control himself. But when he comes undone he'll be dragging Calavene down with him. That's still along way to go. Lol need some character development for Haldir and to let Calavene shine for a bit. I will miss your reviews and have a pleasant vacation. Wish i could go on one too. My writing's improved? Thank you! That's so nice of you to say so. i have been searching for websites of Tolkien's work to familiarize with the words he used.

Title: Chapter 7: Blames Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Right now I am sitting on the balcony of my vacation apartment, looking out over the shallow ocean waters of the Florida Keys and reading your story. As you can tell, I have WIFI. I like where things are going. Elves and water are always a good combo. And the sound of the waves here are a great added effect. Can't wait to see what happens down by the river.

Author's Response: oooo..i'm so utterly jealous i am slaving over my clerking sheet for my final exam with the doctor tomorrow...i need a vacay! Yes, water and elves are always a delicious combo. I'm glad you can find the time to review this. It means a lot. Have fun!

Title: Chapter 8: All is forgotten Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I love the back and forth angst between Hal and Cal. Great build up for whatever is to come. I really enjoyed this chapter and can't wait for more. I always wondered what Gimli said to Haldir. That really wasn't a nice thing to say to a guy with a bow. lol

Author's Response: I'm glad i could have cleared that up for you. I used some of the lines from the movie. Yeah, it wasn't a good thing to say to a guy with a bow but then again gimli has a big axe :P

Title: Chapter 9: Dreams and Fantasies Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Would you like me to send Nieriel over to 'take care of' your Haldir? lol Better yet, I think your Cal and my Cal just need to go out and have a beer. Great chapter. I'm excited to see what comes next.

Author's Response: Lol, im afraid your nieriel would feel overwhelmed with my Haldir :D yes, both the Cals should go out for a beer and have a looooooooong talk lol

Title: Chapter 10: New Acquaintances Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
They're kissing, they're touching, they're moaning and then... it's over? What the... I loved it. Now who's the tease? Good one my friend. I'm on the edge of my seat. Can't wait for more.

Author's Response: i learned by reading from the best tease around *whistles and points finger at you

Title: Chapter 11: Frodo Baggins Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Great chapter. I feel bad for Calavene. Haven't we all taken the chance on revealing our feelings for someone only to be hurt? I feel her pain. Just to let you know, tomorrow we leave the Keys and I know for a fact I will have no internet until the middle of next week. I'll catch up with you then, hopefully. Can't wait to see what happens next. Give him hell Calavene!

Author's Response: this chapter infuses my own personal experience. i have been there before and it does hurt lol. i hope you have a safe journey home and will be looking forward to your new chapter

Title: Chapter 12: So Comes the News Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Wow. I have some catching up to do. So... Orophin is a peeping Tom and Haldir and Calavene have ME version of phone sex. I like it. But now I'm sad that their going to Helm's Deep. I'm trying really hard not to skip ahead and find out what happens to them. Good chapter.

Author's Response: Hehe... have fun reading! thanks for the review and yes... there is catching up to do
Date: 07/25/10
Title: Chapter 13: Helm's Deep Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
This is the way it should have been. I never understood why Haldir was killed in the movie. What purpose did it have? I like where you are going with this though. I am anxious to read the next chapter but my eyelids are too heavy. Great reenactment of the battle at Helm's Deep.

Author's Response: Thank you :) i once read that Haldir's death was to represent the passing of the elves. i guess PJ had his reasons. rest first then read lol

Title: Chapter 16: Getting to Know You Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
Well, I've gotten this far and it has been an enjoyable read. I love how Calavene cared for Haldir after he was wounded. Now they are sharing some much needed alone time together. I know she is deeply in love with him. I only hope he does not break her heart again. She has fallen hard for him. Great writing. I cannot wait to finally catch up.

Author's Response: I am glad you are enjoying the read so far. I cannot wait to hear what you think of the other chapters
Date: 07/26/10
Title: Chapter 19: Realization Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
These last few chapters were excellent. My heart was breaking as Haldir listened to Mebedir tell him about the proposal. I knew things were about to spin out of control. And then when Calavene went to Haldir and gave herself to him I thought, 'now she's done it.' I was screaming for him to admit his love for her, but he passed out first. Now I cannot wait to see what happens next. It is all very exciting. Great writing luthien85. I'm enjoying it immensely.

Author's Response: Thank you for your kind reviews. I like to think i have a few surprises left in store. Stay tuned and i do hope you are entertained :)and call me kay :)

Title: Chapter 20: The Road to Rivendell Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I'm glad she made it to Imladris without incident. Haldir better get going. He needs to be with her. I won't relax until then. Darn those wargs.

Author's Response: it would be a while before he finds her. I guess the Valar wanted to teach something to both Calavene and Haldir :)
Date: 07/28/10
Title: Chapter 21: Truth and Lies Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
If they do catch up to her, I can't wait to see how she will deal with lying to those in Rivendell. You are definitely weaving a tangled web, one that will be difficult for all to escape from. This story is coming along nicely.

Author's Response: i am at a plot junction now. to flee or stay... it is indeed a tangled web... but we will not hear from calavene for a bit hehe

Title: Chapter 22: Visions of Pelennor Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
I am anxious to see if you will incorporate Haldir or Calavene into the mix somehow, though I know neither one is even close to the battle scene. And will Legolas play some part in finding her? You leave me wondering about which way your plot will go.

Author's Response: they won't be included in the battle...however the battle's outcome will affect the time of Haldir's way for Legolas to enter the mix :D shh...i have given out a lot of spoilers to you...stay tuned and thank you for your review :)

Title: Chapter 23: Triumph and Failure Reviewer: L8Bleumr Signed
ooo... Calavene gave them the slip. Haldir was so close too. Can't wait to see where she's run off to.

Author's Response: Well... she will run into some familiar offer will be that is hard for her to refuse... stay tuned hehe
