Reviews by luthien85
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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

That was wonderful! Unwed females arent allowed in the border's talan? i'm glad that we write about Haldir at the same time but i am beside myself that even though we write the same story, there are so many differences in it which makes reading yours something refreshing for me and it becomes a learning experience :)

Author's Response: I'm glad you think that. I thought it might be awkward at first when we were both writing Haldir stories. But they are definitely different. I can follow along with yours and not feel like I'm stepping on anyone's toes. They are two very different characters even though they are the same person. You have to love fanfiction. No two are alike, that's for sure.

Title: Chapter 16: 16 Target Practice Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Ooo...the classic archery scene..very sensual!! i loved it and i can't wait to see how things unfold :) the tension between them is overwhelming! great chapter

Author's Response: Thanks kay. I'm glad the archery scene came across well. I've only fired a bow a handful of times and I definitely did not have a handsome elf instructor breathing on my neck. Maybe I would have been better at it if I did.

Title: Chapter 17: 17 Look Into The Future Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Why is sit always hard for people to admit their love for each other? It would save them a lot of hurt. Haldir should learn to loosen up and accept love easily. Wonderful chapter. I cannot wait for the chapter where Haldir finally gives in :)

Author's Response: Because if they came out and said 'I love you' there would be no story. And then we'd never have become review buddies lol ;-)

Title: Chapter 18: 18 Attack At The Border Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Oh no!! A stray arrow...Oh Haldir, if you would have just met her this wouldn't have happened. I blame you arrogant, self-centred, handsome,sexy, yummy Haldir...*drools

I hope Cal make it and i hope haldir sees the error of his ways. Great chapter and a great cliffhanger!!

Author's Response: Breathe... breathe. Do you need some oxygen? Do you need a moment? You crack me up. Hang in there and wipe your chin. Next chapter is on its way soon.

1...2...3.... aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! that was sooo sweet!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh *runs around the room

Author's Response: Don't trip over any furniture. Thanks for aaahhhhing with me ;-)

Title: Chapter 20: 20 Accepting Fate Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Oh dear... a life force sucking elleth! Haldir better watch out. I hope caladwen wont suck his energy too much or haldir wont have any left for me! great chapter. I like the energy plot line :)

Author's Response: All this talk of Haldir and sucking is... well never mind. Glad you liked it but it's time to turn up the heat. The 'Marchwarden' is about to make an appearance soon. Everything can't be all bunnies and rainbows now can it. BTW it cracks me up how our stories criss cross sometimes, especially since we seem to post at the same time.

Title: Chapter 21: 21 No Greater Love Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Ahhh!! Eowyn!! Why oh why!! I was enjoying the heated embrace and the kisses. and then there was a promise of love making and the poof! shattered... u have left me wanting and i do not appreciate that... update soon or else...

Author's Response: Your idle threats do not frighten me my young friend. Leave it to family to interfere in your love life. Eowyn kind-of jumps the gun by calling on Caladwen. Faramir is not that bad off yet.

Title: Chapter 22: 22 Home Again Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Legolas...*sigh...gotta love a dad like him. handsome and caring. i hope haldir survives the interrogation soon. Just promise me Haldir will return safe and sound *crosses fingers

Author's Response: I have always pictured (in my mind anyways) Thranduil as being very overprotective of Legolas. Although we don't know much about Leg, I think of him as an only child. I am an only child and my mom was an overprotective parent. Now I find myself doing the same thing. So, to me Legolas would naturally respond in the same way as he was raised. As far as Haldir returning unharmed, don't worry. Legolas may be very watchful but he's not crazy. He uses words not weapons. Besides, something tells me that Haldir could totally kick his butt if need be.

Title: Chapter 23: 23 Love Is a Risk Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
I have been sexually frustrated these few days. I am cranky and miserable...when oh when will they consummate their love? You are such a tease...wonderful chapter! can't wait for more!

Author's Response: OK Tell you what I'm gonna do for you. I'm gonna give you a little something that will hopefully give you some relief until Hal and Cal get on the same page with their feelings. Jeez, can't an Elf get to first base and not have to make a home run every time? Keep an eye out for a new post from me.

Title: Chapter 24: 24 Apologies Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
To quote Gimli, if anyone's asking my opinion which they're not, i think we're taking the long way round! Hehehe...i agree..true love cannot be rushed. Or your Cal will suffer the same fate my Cal went through :) great chapter very tender as usual

Author's Response: I see you picked up on that. Nothing gets past you does it? And by the way, you spoil me too but I think we are both worth it.

Title: Chapter 25: 25 Mixed Signals Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Talk about misunderstandings... It could ruin our lives... i hope haldir won't be too hurt. Great chapter!

Author's Response: This might just be where things go from bad to worse. It's time to take an extreme 'left turn' in the story.

Title: Chapter 26: 26 Hardened Heart Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
aahhhh... OMG..OMG..the biggest and strategically placed cliffhanger and now i'm dying!!! please update soon!

Author's Response: Please don't die. I'd miss hearing from you ; - )

Author's Response: Thanks Kay, for being first to review each chapter. Glad you enjoyed it.

Title: Chapter 30: 30 More Wine Please Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
oh have introduced a new person! ahhh...why do i feel that she would come in between them? Forgive me for not reviewing earlier but was busy starting a new fic :)

Author's Response: No worries. I'm starting one too but I won't begin posting it until I'm finished with this one. Yes, Haldir is falling back into his former playboy-self (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Title: Chapter 31: 31 Abandoning Reality Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
ahh...i dont know whether to hate him or love him...ok i'll admit it, haldir can make me scream his name over and over again but poor caladwen...and there she was alone thinking about him... I feel the urge to slap someone! *slaps haldir

Author's Response: He can run but he can't hide. Hal and Cal's connection is strong, though they don't realize it. When he let's go and conjures her up in his mind, she senses him and they feel one another. He's a bad, bad Elf. Since it's your birthday, I'll let you be the one to punish him as you see fit. *slaps Hal and hands him over to you*

Title: Chapter 34: 34 Undesirable Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
yay!! go haldir go! ride like the wind and kick that bad man's ass!! wooo hooo!! some day my prince will come! daa daa da da da daaaa....

Author's Response: Alright. Calm down Cinderella. Yes he is on his way but will he make it in time? That is the question.

Title: Chapter 35: 35 Missing Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
aaahhhhh!! that evil man! Haldir better get his butt there! owh, that elf makes me so angry at times!

Author's Response: Which makes punishing him all the more fun. Come here boy, so I can put a whoopin' on ya!

Title: Chapter 36: 36 In Dark Places Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Arrghhh!! a cliffie! *throws self off it... wonderful chapter. im glad haldir has come to his senses. please reach there in time. if anything happens to her, the idea of losing the two most handsome elves in Arda is too painful

Author's Response: I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend... It's not worth throwing away all that we have. hehehe. See ya on the flip side. sorry it's late here and I'm rambling.

Author's Response: Thanks. I just can't seem to get away from the cliff.

Title: Chapter 1: A Bit Of Advice Reviewer: luthien85 Signed
Hi! It's me again your review buddy lol. It's true. Every writer, good or bad, me being the latter, likes to read reviews about the story they wrote. Some of us are more experienced and some like me, are starting to write. Reviews help an author to know that their story is enjoyed by others.

Reviews work as a food source for me and my muse. When we get no feedback about our story, we tend to think people don't like it. Yes, the read count shows you how many people have read your story but with no or an abysmal amount of reviews, you will start to think that are they really reading it until the end or skipping through?

Reviews also help the said author interact with their readers. Sometimes and in this case with my story and you, i remembered a plot i had forgotten until you mentioned it. An author/reader relationship should always be a two way relationship. For that, i thank you for being my loyal reader and reviewer.

In the end, all us authors, amateur or professional would really love to hear some feedbacks about their story and like spiced wine said, some of the stories here can put published authors to shame. I believe those authors deserve some recognition in the form of a review.

Author's Response: I am glad you agree and personally I think you are a good writer. After I finished your story His Eyes, I went back and read the first chapter again. I could see how your writing improved. Do not doubt yourself. I am proud to be your review buddy and hope to be so as long as we are writing.
