I really enjoyed this, It is funny and reminds me of trying to learn to smoke as a teenager. Legolas was smart enough to only try once, I kept trying til I mastered it. Great threat to Gimli.

Enjoyably steamy, but it's hard to picture Tyelkormo being so sweet. I've come to picture him as one who will give you pleasure only to please himself. But that's just me. Bad elf! Beautiful bad elf! Go ahead, get back in that pool and continue taming your Tyelkormo.

Author's Response: Wow, somebody is still reading my fics years after I've posted them! I am very pleased and very honored by your reply. Thank you very much. I'm not exactly sure why it is that people have a hard time picturing any of the Feanorians as sweet, enjoyable people. Perhaps they make such good, convenient villains that it is easy to forget they are Elves. They were young once, they lived in what equates as paradise to us and surely they must have not always been dark, brooding and extremely dangerous. Of all the brothers, I fancy Tyelkormo the most and I imagine him as the most open with his emotions, whether he is happy, playful, wrathful or even murderous. Also, possibly the most attention and affection seeking of all Feanaro's sons. Ah, look at me rant... Thank you for reading and for enjoining a few (steamy) moments is the company of an undoubtedly steamy Elf.

So well written. I could picture every scene. Loved the opening lines, which really drew me in. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. You are a gifted story teller. I'm so happy I stumble across it. You really need to do this professionally. No disrespect to slash writers, but there is no reason anyone should be surprised that Maedhros is paired romantically with a female. Tolkien never wrote a character in a same sex relationship physically. Love between same sex characters was pure, deep, friendship.

Author's Response: Thank you for this lovely review. I'm glad you found it evocative - I always have these vivid pictures of scenes in my mind and I desperately try to communicate them in the narrative!

I actually do normally write slash, including with Maedhros, but a part of me just feels that the poor old chap needs a nice, down-to-earth woman to sort him out! I think for slash to work it has to be developed in a way that's appropriate to the story and the plot. In this story I wanted to explore the idea of redemption for him, and Meleth's combination of firmness, empathy and the maternal fussing over Maglor and the boys seemed to be the best way to help him there.

Thanks once again!

I have to add this. I cannot believe that Los Gloriol and I are the only two people to review this awesome bit of writing. What's wrong with the rest of you 690? Are you too jealous to pay a compliment? This is far too good to deserve only two reviews. I'd add you to my favorites except I've never been able to get that button to work. So I'm going to mention you in my bio. It gets me so angry when people can read and no doubt enjoy something and not bother to leave one kind word. It has to be jealousy.

Author's Response: Hee, thanks for reviewing, and I'm delighted you enjoyed it so much. I'd be honoured to be mentioned in your bio - it means a lot that you feel strongly enough about the fic that you'd give it an "advert" like that!

I always appreciate every single review, but I guess if readers choose not to then that's up to them - it won't stop me writing as I write because of love for the characters! I suppose in the end if just one person was touched in some way by my writing then it was all worth it. :)

I really enjoyed this story. Almost everything I know about the first age, I've learned from fan fiction. I don't know the characters, but I don't need to. You've conveyed their love, loss, and hope so well. Thank you for making my morning!

Author's Response: Oh wow! I'm glad it was able to touch you so much! It was only a little exploration I decided to do one day...basically all we know about Rumil of Tirion is that he invented the precurser to Elven script, and jotted down some histories and things. The rest is just the backstory I imagined for him, a story about dedication and love. :) Glad you enjoyed, and thanks for the review!

I don't need to tell you, this is an enchanting storey. I enjoyed it very much!

Author's Response: I love hearing it, just the same. :o) Thank you. I'm very happy you enjoyed my little tale.

Summary: During the decade following the War of the Ring, King Elessar and Queen Undómiel work tirelessly to reunify the kingdom and institute governmental reforms. Most of the war-weary population embraces the King’s peacetime policies and building projects as prosperity and opportunity slowly return to Gondor and beyond. Old enemies resurface, however, as four villains emerge to cast covetous eyes upon the southern provinces and form an evil alliance which will threaten the stability of the empire and even the safety of the royal family.

Achapter here and there is the way I've been reading your wonderous Arwen's Journey, But that will not do, It is going to be my late summer reading and deserves full attention. I have always admired your style of writing and completely enjoyed your short stories. I know I will enjoy this also. Thank you so much for sharing your gift.

Author's Response: Thank you, Lisse. As you go through the chapters, you may notice a few original characters who appear in my other stories. I set this novella aside quite a while ago to work on shorter stories and also because of health issues. I hope to resume working on it this fall or winter, depending on how my muse moves me.

Summary: In the decades before the War of the Ring, Ithilien was a no man's land, periodically contested and occupied by bands of Mordor Orcs and troops of rangers from Emyn Arnen and Minas Tirith. The rangers' brave leader was Captain Faramir, son of Denethor II, Steward of Gondor. This story takes place near the northern fringes of the Ithilien woods about a dozen years before the War (Adapted from a Vietnam experience).

So professional! I was drawn in right away. I'll read the sequel for sure.

I'm reviewing for a young friend whom I shared this story with. She is a young teen, thus I could not recommend this site to her. She was very impressed and wants more Pocosin stories. I'd like that also!

Author's Response: Thanks for your interest, Lisse, and for introducing your young friend to my works. Pocosin the scout and ranger will appear in more of my stories later on. He will also appear in "Arwen's Journey." Although this story is rated NC-17, the chapters in which he appears may be rated G to R. You are welcome them, then print or download them at your discretion for your friend's perusal.

Summary: A poem I wrote for a special Elf at the time of Summer Solstice, 1986. I had painstakingly did it in Calligraphy on parchment and presented it to her in a glassed frame. She was mildly amused. Alas! It did not win her heart. Neither did she notice the message in the vertical column. Ah! The foolish things I did for love when I was younger!

Summary: In the decades before the War of the Ring, Ithilien was a no man's land, periodically contested and occupied by bands of Orcs from Mordor and troops of rangers from Emyn Arnen and Minas Tirith. Among the rangers' ranks was a young scout, a stalwart lad by the name of Pocosin. He came from a small farming community near the banks of the River Serni in central Lebennin. This story takes place in the Ithilien woods about a dozen years before the War of the Ring. A sequel to The Lucky Arrow.

Very well done. An interesting story that only a soldier could tell. I hope you will write us more stories of Pocosin

Author's Response: I submitted this story and it's prequel for the perusal of an old WWII vet who possessed a long-standing interest and background in literature. Although he knew very little about Tolkien and Middle Earth, he nevertheless agreed to judge the stories on their literary and soldierly merit. I was quite pleased when he later told me that "...no civilian could make this sort of thing up."

I'm glad you enjoyed the story, Lisse. Thanks for reviewing. Pocosin will indeed be featured in some of my other stories.

Author's Response: Thanks for your review, Lisse, and for taking the time to search through the archives to find this essay. I haven't posted any new chapters for "Arwen's Journey" for some time, due to health issues and the challenge of writing short stories for a younger audience. Presently, I'm working on an adventure/crossover story entitled "Lothlorien Autumn". I intend to get back to "Arwen's Journey" as soon as it's finished.

You make a very good point. If I remember right, there are at least a few Elves that went to the undying lands and returned.

Author's Response: Thanks for taking an interest in this essay, Lisse. I'm not the first author here to experiment with the idea that were still some forms of communication between Middle Earth and Undying Lands during the 4th Age up to the time when Valinor finally disappeared into another dimension. The most popular of these ideas I've seen here, thus far, is Frodo and Sam sending each other mail up to the time of the latter's departure into the West.
