Reviews by luthien85
Summary: The title says it, more or less. Bilbo didn't have to leave his home to face trouble. One-shot and an attempt on humour. :)

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 An Unexpected Arrangement Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
hello! I must say i thoroughly enjoyed your story. it got me going back on forth but then again sometimes, love is like that especially when it involves two very admirable and sexy males lol.

Your story is so endearing and i love how you depicture Eowyn as a strong woman but has problems with her control over her feelings.

Legolas is so warm and inviting. It's so easy to fall in love with him. Faramir has suffered a fate terrible than death i must say, for having children is probably anyone's biggest hope.

I love how you portrayed Boromir. Yes, he is an honourable man, but with a broken heart. But i'm glad he didn't hold any grudge against his brother.

Keep up the story! I would love to see how Legolas raises his daughter and how hard for him to leave her behind.

Author's Response: Hello luthien85. I am glad to hear you are enjoying the story. I must admit, I go back and forth myself as I write. Just when I get comfortable with one leading man, the other wants back in the spotlight. As for Eowyn, I have always thought of her as a very durable character. She faces her fears and takes them on no matter what the outcome might be. So of course her relationships would be turbulent also. Then there's poor Faramir. He has had it pretty rough his whole life, trying not to follow in his father's footsteps. That's a hard thing to do when it's the only life you know. I didn't want to make Boromir a bad guy. He was a man that knew what he wanted and hearing the word 'no' was not an option. He always meant well. There's nothing more I can say about Legolas. I will always view him as being honest, compassionate and loving to no end. He is completely devoted to all those who are a part of his life. And just one more thing... I have been following your story also and... well... check your reviews because I know how wonderful it is to receive them lol.

Oh my! I love the update! Can't wait for them to name the baby!

Author's Response: I think the name will be very fitting. Thanks for the review.

Caladwen... very elvish and very fitting. It breaks my heart that legolas is leaving. I wish he could stay. couldn't the valar make an exception?

I am glad though Faramir and Eowyn has found new frienship. Gosh, i don't know who to root for Legolas or Faramir...

I await your next chapter eagerly!

Author's Response: It's not over yet. Eowyn still has to make her final decision. And yes, I liked the name Caladwen. It stuck out among the others especially since Eowyn's visions were always of a light floating about. And by the way, thanks for the shout out. Glad to be your reviewer just as you are mine.

Title: Chapter 26: A Time of Renewal Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Wonderful chapter! I love how you made her hear the words in the wind. It almost feels like it was really Legolas who said those words. As much as i hate the fact legolas is leaving, faramir is the second best man for Eowyn nd Caladwen. I hope to read more on Haldir and the baby lol. Wonderful chapter and keep it up! Thanks for the dedication. I can already feel the healing power of the pool :P

Author's Response: I am actually in the process of writing a sister story to this one with Haldir and Caladwen as main characters. As soon as I am finished with this story, I'll start posting the new one. Too many spoiler alerts to put it up now.

OMG!! That would be so definitely cool...Haldir and Caladwen sitting in a tree... K-I-S-S-I-N-G! lol

Title: Chapter 27: Return of the Prince Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
OMG!! You are a tease! Oh how i wanted the Valar to make an exception for him! Now you'll make me root for Legolas and i fear it can only break my heart! Wonderful chapter. Very heartwarming scenes between Legolas and Caladwen. Oh i really hope Legolas has a chance. Elves only love once and legolas has already bound himself to her. Faramir can find love once again. Staggeringly exciting and wonderful chapter! Will look forward to the next

Author's Response: I love your enthusiastic reviews. I feel that I am doing what I set out to achieve, to entertain. Until Eowyn clearly chooses her final path, she will still be drawn to both males. I will do my best not to left you heartbroken. But don't worry for Legolas. He is strong and will weather anything thrown at him.

Title: Chapter 28: Birthday in Lorien Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Eowyn better pluck up the courage to ask him! It would be best for Caladwen. You stopped too soon. You're leaving me wanting lol. I look forward for your update!

Author's Response: Sorry it took me a little longer to respond. It's summer and my daughter's not in school which leaves me little time during the day to get anything else done. Eowyn is picking a bad time to become silent isn't she? She has a big decision to make and she won't be whole until she chooses Man or Elf. She is to the point where she can only be with one. Don't we all wish we could have our cake and eat it too. lol

Title: Chapter 29: To the Sea Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
again, you made me root for legolas. It's unbearable to read the end of the story. It scares me to death to find out what happens. Update soon! I eagerly await the verdict

Author's Response: We're coming to a close, but I promise to tie up all the loose ends and see all character's stories to the end. Hopefully it will leave everyone pleasantly satisfied.

Title: Chapter 30: As It Should Be Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
I'm glad both got their happy ending! In a sense you made the story parallel to that of tolkien, legolas with no partner. i guess the love between a human and elf can only be for arwen and aragorn. beautiful chapter. i like the way you go back and forth. you made me want to skip to the best part lol. but i held on and read through it. great story! I hope to read more of yours soon

Author's Response: Glad you're still enjoying it. There's only two chapters left. I want to see everything through to a complete end and set things up for my next story at the same time.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 An Unexpected Arrangement Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
You have given me hope again that legolas might find love with Eowyn. It is sad though to see Faramir wither away like that. I look forward to the chapters and the elements that would tie everything beautifully!

Author's Response: Even though Faramir passed before his time, he and Eowyn had a beautiful love affair. Their relationship was complete. I always did have a thing for those 'live fast, die young' type of stories. The last chapter will be up soon. I just need to tweak a few things so it relates better to my next story. Thanks for following along.

Phew! finally the time to read the final chapter. my laptop broke down and i was aching to read the ending. i must say your story has kept me captivated these past months. very few people dare to venture in the love triangle genre because it posts too many problems and loose ends to tie it up. But you have done such a beautiful job and it has been an honor and a privilege to have read and enjoy your work. Thank you for sharing your vision and i hope to see more work from you!

Author's Response: You have made my day. I've been having one of those days where it would have been better to stay in bed. And then I fired up the computer. I am so glad to have held your interest to the end. Thanks for all of your support.

Summary: What once began as an innocent childhood friendship comes under threat as Arwen and Legolas realise that they yearn for something more. Amongst the turbulant years of the 3rd age, both encounter significant hurdles as they struggle to hide their desires.

This story also includes the twins and a couple of OCs. No slash. No crude language.

(Rating due to change in later chapters. However, as this content is not written, no absolute decision is to be made as of yet.)

Title: Chapter 8: Unruly Blossom Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
I read your story a few weeks ago and i had totally forgotten to favourite this so i didnt get the update notification. i kept on asking myself what story was it about Arwen and Legolas? lol wonderful writing. you have a great way with words. The flow is actually very sensual. I should be able to learn a lot from you by reading your story, if you'll have me. keep up the good work!

Author's Response: I'm flattered that you like my writing - it is what I aim for, but am never sure if I truly achieve my goal. I try my best. Sensual - if I've mananged to achieve that in some way, then I'm quite proud. Thankyou for your review - reviews are warm fuzzies; you cannot get enough of them! I will try to update soon :) LC

Title: Chapter 9: Stifling Blackness Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Oh,what a cheeky chapter! I love the little fight Arwen had with Alar. So cute! Can't wait for more!

Author's Response: I'm glad that you liked it :) Alar is such a playful character, despite being a little older than the twins. I thought that little scene was fitting to one with a nature such as his. But it seems he has competition - although outright rivalry may not be displayed. I'll try to update more from now on! LC

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.

Title: Chapter 1: 1 Haldir's Resistance Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
great start and great cliffhanger. I was afraid to read your story since we're both doing Haldir. Ideas might get mixed up lol. Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: I know right? I have been writing this for a little while but couldn't post it until I was finished with the first one. Because the two stories relate to each other, I had to make sure things matched up and even had to change some things in the first one to support the second. And then you started doing Haldir first (though somehow I don't think Haldir minds) :0 lol I guess great minds think alike. hehe. When we're done with our stories we can co-write a new one and call it My Haldir Can Beat Up Your Haldir. *likes to laugh at her own jokes*. Good hearing from you.

We should one day combine forces lol and my haldir would definitely own yours :D

Author's Response: I'll take that bet and raise you a Legolas.

Title: Chapter 1: 1 Haldir's Resistance Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
OMG! Finally! I get to read the chapters again. Wow, i missed a lot here. Niriel is a perfect addition to test our marchwarden. She's like the mirror image of him but slightly less cold i think. It's heart warming to see the relationship between Caladwen and Haldir grow. I like that he can be himself in private moments with her. Can't wait for the next one!

Author's Response: Welcome back. Next chapter is up. I'm trying to post as often as I can before I leave on vacation next week for 2 weeks. Not sure I'll have internet where I'm going, at least for the first week. If I do, more chapters to come.

Title: Chapter 6: 6 The Proposal Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Owh! You tease! Things were getting hot and heavy and then boom! trees talking lol. One year, anything can happen in one year and i hope the relationship between caladwen and haldir will stand the test of time

Author's Response: I love reading your reviews. You always make me smile or laugh. I promise you won't have to wait long to get to the juicy part. Haldir has been celibate long enough.

Title: Chapter 7: 7 How To Please A Warrior Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
A great lesson learned today. If i ever have the need to please a warrior i shall do as instructed lol. great and sensual chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks. Glad you liked it. I like to think Haldir has a kinky side and Nieriel has always wanted to try out something different from the norm.

Title: Chapter 8: 8 Lesson of Love Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Yay! A wedding is on the way! I feel bad for Haldir. When will our marchwarden learn about true love? I am glad Legolas finds no fault in Leodred. Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Haldir will go through some trials and tribulations before all is said and done. Legolas is hard to convince when it comes to Caladwen. He's such a protective dad. Much more to come. Hopefully soon.
Date: Jul 09 2010
Title: Chapter 10: 10 Wedding Day Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Oh, get a room caladwen! you made haldir all jealous and worked up now lol! Wonderful and tender chapter. I cannot wait to see how things progress with caladwen and leodred. Can't wait also for when haldir accepts what he feels!

Author's Response: I'm laughing out loud. You are too funny. Thanks.

Title: Chapter 11: 11 Leaving Ithilien Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Wow, nieriel... captain, lover, head mistress and now teacher..a yoda of sorts for Haldir, teach him the ways of love i must! hehe..great chapter. i cannot wait to see what happens in lorien!

Author's Response: Once again you've got me in stitches. I never looked at it that way. I guess she is a jack of all trades isn't she. Maybe I'll have her do the old jedi mind trick on Haldir. Crossover anyone?

Title: Chapter 12: 12 Nieriel's Secret Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Wow..that was a bomb! A great history to add to add to the marchwarden persona. to be scarred from he was an elfling. wonderful chapter. can't wait for caladwen to meet him in rohan!

Author's Response: I had to go back and read my own chapter. It's been a while but I'm back. Haldir has issues, that's for sure. Much more to come soon.

Title: Chapter 13: 13 Tragedy In Rohan Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
I am glad you are back! Wonderful chapter. so tender and sweet. It is good to see Haldir in his element. Caladwen will need time and it is fortunate haldir has it. Waiting eagerly for the next chapter

Author's Response: Thanks, it's good to be back. Haldir has always felt the guilt of not following through with his oath to be her guardian. But when she needs him most, he is there for her. Next chpt will be up soon.
Date: Jul 25 2010
Title: Chapter 1: 1 Haldir's Resistance Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Things are picking up. I wonder what will happen in Lorien. Haldir will be back in his element. It is also nice to see Caladwen bounce back. There's nothing like a new beginning!

Author's Response: She has grieved and is now ready to move on. Haldir on the other hand is still... well, Haldir.
