Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8 Reviewer: teacalm Signed
The dynamics of Eomer and Loti's relationship changes to the point of no return; indeed, no turning back. But I like the fact, that before the last scene, is the thawing of Eomer and Loti's heart. It just shows you that no matter what or where your station is in life, the rules of attraction and chemistry, does not know any boundaries. When it strikes, it strikes hard. I love the details of your story; you take the time to develop each character's turning of change of heart. Never a dull moment. Pleassseee continue, and much thanks.

Author's Response: Thanks for such a clear well thought review!! I agree sometime you don't know why you're attracted to some people, and sometimes it's people who you might not even consider getting to know! Romance, love, sex, attraction... it's all just part of the human condition.

Heart of Stone by luthien85 Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 75]

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: teacalm Signed
So sorry for not reviewing sooner, but I did catch your story from the start, and somewhere along in the middle, kind of lost interest. Read the rest of the chapters, and I have to say I'm the voice of dissent here, as I love how you "killed off" Calavene. I thought it served Haldir right for thinking he had Calavene all along, no matter what happen. But you made amends, and the story looks like it's going to be not so tragic after all. You have a great imagination; thanks for continuing to write. Lovely story.

Author's Response: thanks i guess? i'm sorry you lost interest but i am happy you found your way back to the story :) thank you so much for taking the time to review. I hope you will continue to follow the story till the end and i do hope you won't be disappointed :)

Summary: Haldir has spent a lifetime protecting his home and his heart. With the birth of one of the last Peredhil also came his oath to watch over and protect her. The wall he has built to protect his soul is being threatened. Change does not come so easily to the Lorien Elf as he tries to deny the fact that love is stronger than arrogance.

Let's just say the suspense is killing me. I want to find Caladwen now. Good job of building up the story, and I'm sorry for not reviewing sooner. I have been following your story, and it's a quite enjoyable read. Amazing how you can come up with one suspense after another. More please!

Author's Response: Hello teacalm. It's nice to meet you. Please do not apologize. I'm glad you have decided to review. I always enjoy hearing from someone new. Thank you so much for your kind words and for following along. More is on the way. I hope to hear from you again.

Title: Chapter 37: 37 The Secret Room Reviewer: teacalm Signed
That was a close call. It only took for Caladwen to be in grave danger to snap bullheaded Haldir out of his stupor. Man! He needs a good shaking, but no matter, Caladwen is out of danger. So much uncertainty, and I have a feeling this is not the end of this yet. Thank you, thank you.

Author's Response: No, thank you teacalm. Haldir is a bit stubborn, but the situation is switching.

Title: Chapter 38: 38 A Voice From The Past Reviewer: teacalm Signed
I knew it; Caladwen just barely crawled out of danger, and plunged right into more uncertain situation. You are good, very good! I've got to get a grip on my racing heartbeat. And much thanks to you for another exciting update.

Author's Response: Glad you liked it. Their situation is not quite resolved yet, but we're taking an interesting turn. Don't get too excited. I hope your heart is in good working condition. There's no liability in fan fiction.

Title: Chapter 39: 39 Destroying Haldir Reviewer: teacalm Signed
Whaaat! I know Haldir can be a hardheaded a**, but I want him alive, not dead. Besides, he, he, Caladwen and him didn't even get to tumble, wink, wink.

Author's Response: Oohhh, now I see how you are. Is that the only reason you want him alive? LOL I guess you're right. There's no use wasting such a perfectly good Elf. *wink wink - right back at ya*

Title: Chapter 40: 40 Walking in Dreams Reviewer: teacalm Signed
I guess even Haldir has to deal with his girl's dad. Although Legolas does not have a shotgun, but he's deadly with his bow and arrows. The best thing, you did not end Haldir's life. Yeahhhh! What a suspense!

Author's Response: I would never dream of doing away with Haldir. Funny vision though, Legolas standing on a rickety old porch with a shotgun, piece of hay hanging from his mouth yelling at Haldir, "Yew gonna honor my daughter boy?" Ha ha. (sorry, I live in Kentucky USA)

LOL at the thought of Gimli as a chaperone. I chaperoned my older sisters a lot when they were dating, and the first thing they did was to make sure I was well fed and full. Maybe, that's what you have to do with Gimli, too. Your story is so much to read.

Title: Chapter 42: 42 Moving On Reviewer: teacalm Signed
Legolas, Legolas, doesn't the saying "it takes one to know one" ring a bell? Legolas know exactly what a man is thinking. Payback time, perhaps?? Great chapter, as usual. Thanks so much.

Author's Response: I think he's forgot a thing or two. Then again, he's been down that road before. Payback's a b**ch.

Two words, HEE HAW! What a buildup. Love this chapter. But dwarves are not that oblivious, aren't they? Can't wait for the next one.

Author's Response: I just gotta say, I loved checking my reviews and finding that you reviewed each chapter one after another. I know it's a lot of reading and I really REALLY appreciate it. Thank you so much. Now, let's get back to our regularly scheduled program. You might want to put on some Luther Vandross for the next one. lol

I bet this couple were singing Frank Sinatra's Fly me to the Moon...You are all I long for. All I worship and adore. Explosive and utterly delicious. HEE HAW!

Title: Chapter 1: Thoughts Upon Leaving Reviewer: teacalm Signed
Strong scene. I love strong characters who can deny themselves, and choose not to beg, but to continue to move and go on even though inside their hearts are breaking. It's very much like what real life is all about. Short but strong.

Author's Response: This particular character is very much like that. Her whole life has been a whirlwind of pain and she knows what she has to do and does it. Thanks for the review.

Unrelenting Love by luthien85 Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 42]

Haldir and Legolas were fast friends in their youth and spend their time together. One unfortunate incident involving Legolas' younger sister, Lothestel left a bitter taste in Haldir's mouth.

Now years had passed and a tragedy struck Mirkwood. Legolas' brother Gollon Penarn who was the crown prince was murdered by Orcs. To ensure the safety of his people, the new crown prince, Legolas proposed an alliance with the elves of Lorien. Lord Celeborn accepted the alliance with another gesture, the marriage of his Marchwarden to the Princess of Mirkwood.

Lothestel agreed to the marriage without getting to know her betrothed. Much to her surprise and dismay, her wedding night came and with it Haldir.

Could they put their animosity aside to help save the two kingdom? Will true love ever come to them and prevail in the end?

This is Unrelenting Love...

That must be one smoldering, zapping connection just waiting to combust into one great explosion or many, many spectacular fireworks...I've better not get worked out. And the answer is yes to your question.he he Keep on going please.

I just couldn't stay away...I had to read this inspite of my efforts to get off the computer and check my kids' piling of school papers to grade and check (I hs). Looks very much like another touchingly sweet story. Can't wait to read all of the chaps. Thank you for continuing to write.

Author's Response: Well, thank you for continuing to read. I hope to keep entertaining you. Now, get back to work and get those papers graded. I won't let it be said that I kept anyone from their 'real work'. *haha*

That is very rude of Legolas to leave without saying goodbye and thank you. Where were his manners? He needs spanking.:)Ahhhh, keep on going please.

L8Bleumer, you are such a good storyteller. I would love to adopt this story to tell my kids, but I would have to leave out description of Legolas attributes and ahem...other things. Hanging in here for more, please!!!

Author's Response: Wow. Thanks for such a nice comment. I never thought of this being toned down to more of a G rated fairytale. I get too carried away with my elves and it's hard to leave out those *ahem* parts. So glad to have you come along on my little ride. More to come tomorrow.

Title: Chapter 17: Chapter 17 Reviewer: teacalm Signed
Ok, is your girl connected somehow to Minaethiel? It makes sense if it is, and explains how Legolas touch is very familiar. I love how you made your girl strong, and not easily persuaded even by Ethan. I think if it comes down to it, she will choose her life in the country, surrounded by her magical forest, over Ethan. I like the fact that she did not beg Ethan to stay. Go girl! About Ethan, I can sympathize with him. I am a city girl, but if my man moves to the country for whatever reason, you betcha I'm going to follow him wherever he goes (even to Timbuktu). But then again, that's just me; I'm hopelessly desperate. Keep on going please, and thanks.

Author's Response: I'm glad you like our girl. I love to make my women stong. I can relate since I am a taurus and have quite a stubborn side. I would not have followed any man until my husband came along. He was worth following. Guess that's why I've been married for almost 15 years. As for Legolas, he truly does have feelings for her but there is an underlying link that you have touched on. How we get there is another thing.

Title: Chapter 19: Chapter 19 Reviewer: teacalm Signed
Ethan sure knows how to woo a can quit your crummy jog. The man has no respect for your girl. That's a good thing she turned him down flat. Good for her! Legolas better watch out for her too. She can throw a punch if she needs to do it. I hope Ethan eats his heart away at the loss of his girl. Me thinks he underestimated her and took her for granted. Again, you brought up the overfamiliar feelings that seems to come out in the surface more frequent and stronger now. I have lots of theories playing in my mind right now, but I'll wait for you to surprise me. Ever your loyal reader, L.

Author's Response: Ethan is young and confused. He really does love her, but he wants his cake and eat it too. He thought she would naturally give up every part of her past and follow him around like a lost puppy. The draw of her country home and the land there is very strong, constantly calling to her. It is every bit a part of her and she could no sooner give it up than she could cut off her arm. And the fact that there is a gorgeous elf living in her woods might be a draw also. It would be for me. I would have dumped Ethan a long time ago, and this is my own story. LOL Anyways, I love your enthusiasm for this story and I am ever grateful that you are my loyal reader and reviewer. I appreciate it so much and always look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Amazed how you can come with all this diff scenarious. Merci beaucoup (learning French with kids).
