What can I say? I can't think of a criticism. You just do this so well. I enjoy all of your writing. This is so authentic. I feel a wise ancient being is telling this story
Author's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to review and for the lovely compliment. Thank you!
Sort of like our weather now!I enjoyed this story, as I do all of your work. This is going to be a boring day of meetings and classes, but you've given me something interesting to think about
from time to time!
Author's Response: Thanks, Lisse. It's nice to get a review during this boring weather, especially for a story that's been locked up in the Minas Tirith archives for so long. Please let me know if you'd like me to Email you the actual recipe. Thanks again for your time and interest.
You would have many more reviews praising your talent, but readers are awestruck. Spiced wine has said all there is to say. You're amazing!
Author's Response: You are very kind to say so. :) I'm not great at taking a compliment. And thank you again for taking the time to read and review. It means so much to me.
I very much enjoyed this story too! I'll be reading more of your work! Thank you for sharing your gift.
Author's Response: I'm a sucker for reviews on this one. It was the most fun to write – Dwarves pulling one over on my favorite Elf and all. Thanks so much for reading! :)
A beautiful expression of unrequited love. We all know that feeling. What a lovely, romantic, poet you are. I hope you find your real life Russandol.
Author's Response: Thank you again for reading and taking the time to reply! I never take it for granted and I am very humbled by your remark. I have found my Russandol. Every night I am greeted by his romantic snoring ;) Hugs!
If I believed in reincarnation I would say you where a writer who once lived in such a time and place, you write so authentically. As always you draw me into the world you create and I don't want to leave it. You make every seen come alive so vividly and give the reader effortless understanding of your characters mind, emotion, and circumstance right from the start.
There is so much more to say about the beautifully crafted stories you produce, but all I can do is the written equivalent of stammer in amazement. Every Tolkien fan that enters this site owes themselves the treat of reading your work. We are privileged to have you write for us.
Author's Response: *Blushes* I don't know what to say, except thank you for your kindness. This story, in particular has always felt mediocre at best and weird. LoL! I feel so very honored that you like it and completely humbled by your review. Thank you again. *Hugs you*
I love the themes your exploring in this chapter (7). We all risk the death of a part of ourselves often and in many ways. Nobility takes the risk.
You've expressed these deep themes so eloquently, as usual, and provoked me to think about uncomfortable realities.
Only one with your gift could make reading about death, shall I say pleasurable?
Can't wait to read the next chapters and the end!
It seems wine is a common means of dealing with Celegorm's inpatients
I've read all of your work several times. The awe I felt after reading your work the first time has not diminished. Today I finished chapter 9 of Feantur. Nothing I can think of can adequately describe my admiration. Your writing is indeed glorious. How gifted you are Los Gloriol!
Very well done. There's more going on here than might be evident on the surface. We're all part of that hard fought battle, are we not?
Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, we all fight the monsters in our own way. I looked at your profile, I hope you don't mind, and I would highly recommend you try reading the Dresden Files. It's a series of books about a modern day wizard who lives in Chicago. It's become my latest addiction reading.
I love it!
More absurd peotry! In order for this one to make sense, you must read Legolas--A Haiku first.
I really laughed at this, having read Legolas haiku 1st.
I will read the emotion and never judge. The heart of what you write is more important than a type-o. I am very reluctant to put myself out there, but I do and will the more so.
Author's Response: Thank you Lisse! I can't wait to hear more from you :) -Whisper
It is sad when they leave. I understand this verse very well I believe.
Author's Response: Legolas will always be one of my favorites.
Ah what desperate sweet longing. I can feel the overwhelming need. I love the intensity of your verses.
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
"I see him there in leather and dust"
I love the entire poem, for the reasons I love all your works.
The line in quotes is very good. Keep writing
Author's Response: Keep writing. You are not the first person to tell me that. I don't think I will ever stop :)
I love this sad verse. I think everyone who has ever taken the risk to love can identify with this. If we are very very lucky we find the one who is true and stays.
Author's Response: Thanks again for the reviews! They keep the spirit feeling wanted.
This is wonderous! I should know this, but who is Peredhil?
Author's Response: Actually, Peredhil means half-elven. I'm referring to Elladan. He's my muse ;)
This is beautiful. I love it.
Author's Response: Thanks:)
It feels like a wake with beautiful colors covering the death of a generation of leaves.
Author's Response: Thank you. I haven't gotten any rreviews for these since I wrote them. You've made my day:)
"Do you realize that I hate you sometimes?"
A very wise person once told me that love is never a straight forward emotion, it is always mingled with something else, usually hate or sorrow.
Reading and enjoying your verses.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. This one was really a joy to write. It's one of my favorites.
