And finally it all comes together! Beautifully versed my dear L8Bleumr! ~ Iri

How sad that Terrwyn has to leave her home because some people want to see an innocent woman hanged? But at least she's with Feredir and she gets to visit an amazing place :D And I love the pillow talk between these two! Once again I'm bowing to your talent! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Well, not everyone feels this way towards her, but right now, Bregmund's parents are not at all happy and it could be a dangerous situation. Still, Mirkwood will be a great experience for her. Thanks again Iri.

Love Games by L8Bleumr Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 3]
Summary: Legolas learns that life in Ithilien leaves no time for his wife, but this time she will not take 'no' for an answer. Part of my Untamed series, this story is related to my epic, Taming the Wild, but can be read as a stand alone.

Hello again! *sings* I know where they're going!! I'm glad to have found this, it's been forever since I've been online but I really enjoyed Part 1 of this. So glad there's a lot uploaded I'm looking forward to hours of entertainment! ~ Iri

Title: Chapter 2: We're going to The Picture Show! Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh good gosh! Is Snape going to survive these places? I thought some of the worlds they visited last time would surely give him a heart attack. Now he's in the Rocky Horror Picture Show? That couldn't possibly end well!!

Author's Response: I know. Just wait until you read the rest of the chapters with the Dr.Frank-N-Furtur mixed to wreak all kinds of havok upon Snape's poor existence.

Title: Chapter 4: It's Fine Dining With The Best! Reviewer: Irial Signed
Jack probably nicked one of those bottomless pit bags from someone from Hogwarts (you know the one Hermione carries around?) and filled it with bottles of rum from every single canon he encountered. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it! Another hilarious albeit short chapter! ~ Iri

Aaah never a chapter passes without mishaps that results in unending hilarity! ~ Iri

Author's Response: I do my best, my dear, I do my best. After all, wasn't it Yoda that said 'There is no try, there is only do.'? Don't tell Marie that I just quoted Star Wars. She hates that trilogy with a deep and unending passion...something like her feelings for vampires that sparkle or Justin Beiber.

Hello again Melda! It's been a LONG time I know!

Also props to you for picking Hellsing! I only just finished watching this so had to laugh when I saw Alucard's name pop up haha.

Anyway, thankyou for continuing to entertain absent folks like me! ~ Iri

Hi there,

I am so glad that you've decided to join the crazy world of fanfics and congratulate you on having the courage to do so. I think you have a wonderful imagination and with practice you'll end up dazzling us with some wonderful tales.

However I do have to agree with the others: spelling and grammar. The biggest turn off for me when reading a new story is a lack of either. As much as an author could have a fantastic story to tell it's hard to get into it if I'm constantly noticing errors. Brush up on that and I'm sure you'll do just fine.

Keep it up!! I want to see exactly where your creativity can take us all.

~ Iri

Oh how beautiful! I was filled with the imagery and colours and even the sounds of the glade. I think there's some kind of Elvish in you, my friend because your words can make me picture the scene as though it's happening right before my eyes. A wonderful talent, as I hope I've said before. ~ Iri

Author's Response: Thank you so much. This was one of my favs to write. I did it for a challenge, with no luck for winning. I've gotten a lot of reviews on a different site, asking if there will be more. I never intended to write more because it was only for a contest, but I couldn't leave it alone as the people kept asking. Actually, there will be two more chps and a wrap up for this. I've been working on it bit by bit for a long while now. I'm hoping to post the remainder of it later this week. Oh, wouldn't it be nice to experience elvishness? I do have a great love for the outdoors, though lol.

Title: Chapter 1: The Business of Pleasure Reviewer: Irial Signed
Holy.... Wow. Just wow. : D And I LOVE these two. I'm pretty sure I've told you that before. But it has to be said again - these two are two of the BEST OCs I've ever read in my whole life. I don't normally leap at the chance to read slash but I just had to give this a go. And as always L8Bleumr you haven't disappointed! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Thank you Irial. I was taking a big chance by posting this 1) for the slash. I'm a het writer and I'm sure my readers are used to that, and might have been turned off by a slash story. And 2) because of the use of oc's as main characters. But I do love these guys, and I felt like I owed it to them to give them their time in the spotlight. They are two very different people, but what one lacks, the other makes up for, and I just feel that they fit together perfectly.

I'm with Melda - definitely more descriptions and a more easy-to-read layout would benefit this tale. I like the concept definitely but it's just a little hard to read. ~ Iri

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 spells of old Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh no, don't be sorry! Like I said your concept is great, just needs a few structure and grammer pick ups to make it easier to read! Otherwise it's great. We are all new at this at some point and I found that advice from fellow authors and readers helped me along the way! My tales used to be a right mess don't worry! With practice it'll become easier! Keep going! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Aww so sweet. But chapter nine is gonna be great

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Irial Signed
There are so many brilliant phrases and word-turns in this chapter it's hard to identify them all. I love Gimli's brief slide into immaturity with the beard tails in his mouth. I also do especially like 'They had things to do, places to go, Pippin to see'. And possibly my fav quote of this chapter is again Gimli's : 'Yes, yes, everyone is very well pleased with everyone else...'. Hmmm maybe it's just Gimli who made the first half of this shine? As for the little tidbit at the end of the chapter, this is gorgeous, a moment of realization for Elladan which is very well handled. Amazing work! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Thank you, Irial. Gimli always 'speaks' to me- and I just find him such an intruiging and warm character - that habit he has of sucking the ends of his beard shows in times of extreme anxiety. I'm pleased you like the Elladan bit- as you get trhough Sons you'll see why this I wrote this.

Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh how very clever of Legolas. And how sweet too. A beautiful intervention! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Is that the bit where he distracts Gimli and reminds him Aragorn is who they follow? Again, all of this was just there waiting to be put down- I find the best bits are when the action is 'uncovered' - it sort of writes itself. These first chapters all wrote themselves and took little time- it's later that I slowed down - not that this will affect you! I did keep folks waiting sometimes. Again, thank you for letting em know you are enjoying this Iri

The Last Wood Elf by L8Bleumr Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 62]
Summary: *COMPLETE* When Mirkwood is destroyed, there is only one survivor, an elfling named Legolas. He is the last of his kind, the last wood elf. Eventually he is brought to Rohan where King Théoden takes him into his home and raises him along with his son, Théodred and his nephew Eomer. The boys develop a strong bond and swear their loyalty to one another. Although Legolas is brought up in a world of men, he longs to someday return to his home and, along with his adopted brothers, cleanse it of the evil malice that dwells there and rebuild the elven city, even if he is the last. *Warning* Not your typical Legolas story. Legolas’ history is strictly AU while the rest loosely follows book/movie verse (mind you I said loosely.)

Title: Chapter 2: Woodsmen of the North Reviewer: Irial Signed
I absolutely adore how you've described meeting the woodsmen from Legolas' tiny point of view - actually the sentence 'seemed to touch the sky with his red head' made me laugh so loudly I scared my cat half to death! These woodsmen sound like a great people - I'd certainly feel safe around them!!

Glad to see our two travellers safe for the moment! ~ Iri

Author's Response: I have to admit, it was fun writing these woodsmen. I guess there's really not much known about them, so I got to do a little bit of oc stuff here. The brothers were the most fun, the kind of guys I'd like to hang out with.

Ugh poor Legolas trapped like a caged animal! The description of the cell makes my skin crawl. I hope Grima gets what's coming to him sooner rather than later! ~ Iri

All I could think about during this chapter was screaming RUN LEGOLAS RUN at the top of my lungs! A daring rescue coordinated by Eowyn! And the beginnings of Dernhelm, what a clever inclusion of her alter - well done once again :) ~ Iri

Author's Response: Like I mentioned before, I just love Eowyn's character. I knew it had to be her who helped Legolas escape. She'd never let him rot in a dungeon. Eomer won't be too happy to learn that his sister put her life in danger, but he'll get over it. She's one damn tough chick!

Title: Chapter 24: Chapter 24 On Open Plains Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh my gosh what an intense getaway! Legolas copped just about everything that could possibly have been thrown at him! And hooray for Arod coming to fight for his master like that.

A wonderfully intense action packed chapter L8. Poor Legolas seems to be constantly being chased from his homes :( and now for the first time he's truly out in the cold by himself. I hope his journey gives him some reprieve at some point! ~ Iri

Author's Response: It's always darkest before the dawn, and Legolas is on some very dark times. But there is a change coming, as well as more challenges.

Oooh intriguing! I can't wait to find out why a Galadhrim was so far from home and how on earth she fell into the hands of the Southrons!

I love Beechbone, he reminds me of Quickbeam :D

Another twist in the tale and the excitement continues! ~ Iri

Author's Response: This is the part where I get to branch off from canon and do my own thing for a while. It's difficult trying to stick to the original story line while putting my own twist to it. And now, as Legolas journeys away from Rohan, he'll begin to understand his heritage better. He's getting into his element now, Ents and forests and all.

Wow. Not at all what I was expecting when I suspected Rota was up to something. What a way for her treachery to be revealed!

I'd write more L8 but I have the next chapter to devour! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Legolas' loose ways are getting him in trouble, and Rota is just the one to put the nail in the coffin. He's met his sexual match, I think.
