Bio:
I love Lord of the Rings!
Favorite characters: Aragorn, Eowyn, Faramir, and Legolas.

I am intrigued by Sauron and the other Maiar, and am starting a story about them that will probably not be published.

I am somewhat of a hopeless romantic and a pessimist, which is not a good mix. Most of my work deals with romance on bigger or smaller scales.

Not to offend anyone, but I dislike the slash genre overall. I think it is an insult to Tolkien, and I will not read it.

Also: Special wonderful thanks to my devoted reviewers:
Lisse, also my pen pal and dear friend.
L8Bleumer who was the first to review my work, and does so consistently.
I cannot thank you two enough- I love you both so much! If you get a chance, I would recommend their work as well. =)

Soo well-written! G stories CAN be wonderful! Wow, it gives a lot more depth to Boromir's character and motivations and feelings. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Very very well done. I can see the darkness and the bodies through the eyes of someone who is trying to keep them all safe and protected. It makes Boromir fatherly to the hobbits, and I really love how you interpreted it like that. (What? I am rambling. In short-- great job. =))

The exclamation points add to it very well, and it is short, yet very well written.
Well done! =)

Wow. I just discovered this story, and it is beautiful! You have a gift with words, my dear. I look forward to more chapters about little Dia! Your writing lulls me into a dreamy state-- and I am there with Dia and Namo, and I see what is taking place. Very good job. One thing that I would suggest though is maybe slowing down a bit. Every chapter has so much packed into it, I feel as though you may benefit from slowing it down. But that is just me. Your story is wonderful, please keep writing!

Author's Response: I usually put far more narration and descriptions when I write in french, but I admit I tend to be lazier in english ; or, sometimes, I juste don't have the words to put more flesh around bones. I'll try to make more efforts concerning this, though : it will be a good exercize. Thanks for reading ^^

This is absolutely beautiful. I love your writing style, which is absolutely perfect on all accounts. I especially love this chapter because it is not a typical romance, and yet I love it. If I could write half as well as this, I would consider myself blessed. I normally don't read more than one fanfiction chapter a day, but I am enthralled. Your writing is captivating, and I love your deep pure romance, intertwined with a satirical side, and all in all Calahdra. I love her, her being so much like myself. I am starting to ramble now, but I just wanted to say that you have a gift. This is pure art, and I love it. Thank you for sharing this with the rest of the world, it is what we all need.

Author's Response: Thank you very much! I am glad that Calahdra's tale has captured your attention :)

Another thing that I love about your writing is that you make it SO realistic! I can feel the blush on my skin, and my heart beating in my chest. I pretty much stay away from romance, but I am so glad I did not skip over this! Amazing. Amazing.

I haven't even grown attached to the characters yet, and already I feel a pang in my heart at the loss!

Amazingly powerful writing. Please continue writing this!

Author's Response: This, as stated in the first shapter, was a daydream that I really needed to get on paper. I have a whole plotline worked out, and I want to continue this fic. All I'm struggling for now is the time to continue all of the WIPs I already have. Lookng at all of them make me sad :( I'm hoping that once I wrap up Ever and Ever, I can work with some of these smaller fics. Thank you for the review! -Whisper

This reminds me of The Song of Nimrodel from The Fellowship. Was that the goal...? Because her love left on a ship and left her alone too. (Sorta)

Very well done though, whatever it was written based off of.

Author's Response: Actually, no it wasn't, but I did notice that once I posted it. I just felt abandoned at that point in time and it came out of that. Thanks for the review!
