This story is sucking me into the vortex of the Black Hole. Please do not stop and finish. A pleasure indeed! Thanks so much.
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.
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 :)
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.
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.
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.
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*
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.
Author's Response: Hey, good idea. Wish I had thought of that. Good one teacalm!
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!
Author's Response: Ha Yeah. Good one. Franky could woo anyone even elves couldn't he. Glad you like and a Ya Hoo to you too.
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.
Looks like Haldir will be just the right person to comfort Lothestel...thinking wicked thoughts here.
Author's Response: Hmm...i hate to crush ur wicked thoughts but no...things will get pretty messy soon..thanks for the review
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.
Author's Response: Oooo... I like your way of thinking. Smoldering, combusting and finally exploding. Legolas may be in trouble. *hehe*. Don't worry, we have quite a ways to go yet.
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*
I pictured in my mind a very fine specimen indeed of a male creature. You have not lost your magic, L8Bleumr as you still can entice me and pull me into your story. Let's hope that Ethan will not arrive on the scene anytime soon. Thanks for another story.
Author's Response: You have put a smile on my face, teacalm. So glad to have captured your attention once more.
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.
Author's Response: I'll tell you what. If you can find him, you can spank him. I guess their good at giving the slip. O.K., get your mind out of that gutter. *hehe* ; - )
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.
After slaving away grading/helping the kids' school work, the sight of your story is good for sore eyes (as Swift would have said). Your story is just getting better and better. I can't wait!!! Thanks again.
Author's Response: Happy to have soothed your vision. You are very welcome and more is on it's way.
