Title: Chapter 10: Legolas' Secret Reviewer: Irial Signed
So upsetting for both of them that they can't be where they want to be. I know the feeling. You've captured it well.

Title: Chapter 22: Training and Battle Reviewer: Irial Signed
W.O.W I'm so intrigued as to what will happen between Rhav and Haldir. What a messy love triangle this is turning out to be!

Author's Response: First of all, it's nice to meet you Irial. Thank you for reading and reviewing. I usually try to answer each review but chose to respond to all of yours for this one. I'm so glad you are enjoying the story. Lots of ups and downs in this one but soon the rollercoaster will even out. There's more to come and the story itself is coming to a close. Rhavaniel has touched me deeply and I can still see her in different situations even after this is complete. I never know where my mind with wander to. Again, thank you so much for all the encouraging reviews. It was a nice little surprise for this stormy Monday morning.

Title: Chapter 26: The Healing Pool Reviewer: Irial Signed
That's a really good take on it, I never thought about the way the Ring would effect others beyond the Ring-Bearer. Awesome penmanship!

Author's Response: I like to think that it would to a point. It happened at the councel of Elrond after all and I feel the elves might be a little more susceptible to it's power than men. Thanks again Irial.

Title: Chapter 28: Moving On In Lothlorien Reviewer: Irial Signed

Title: Chapter 29: On The Brink Of War Reviewer: Irial Signed
I LOVE the relationship between Antien and Glandur, it's so honest and sweet!

Author's Response: Why thanks! When this story is done, I am posting a short piece about how these two met and fell in love. Nothing graphic, just emotions and love at first sight.

Title: Chapter 31: Severed Bond Reviewer: Irial Signed
I cried so much during this chapter! So emotive and terribly, terribly sad! But extremely well written! You handled the emotional crescendos without resorting to typical cliches and time-worn phrases. Really inspiring!

Author's Response: So glad you liked it.

Title: Chapter 32: Stolen Moments Reviewer: Irial Signed
I actually fell off my chair laughing at the first half of this chapter. You just manage to throw in pace-changing scenes out of nowhere and still blend it seamlessly. I'm entirely jealous of this ability!

Author's Response: Hey, if you can't feel up your best gay friend, who can you feel up? LOL

Title: Chapter 34: The Ambassador Returns Reviewer: Irial Signed
I'm glad Rhavaniel is sort of returning to her roots and consolidating all sides of her - warrior and negotiator. The prison cell sequence was neat as well!

Author's Response: She is coming around isn't she? Nothing like some jail time to humble the soul.

Title: Chapter 40: To Look Through The Mirror Reviewer: Irial Signed
What a beautiful end to an extraordinary tale L8Bleumr. Can't wait to read your next epic adventure!!! Inspiring penmanship and portrayls. xx - Iri

Author's Response: Thank you Iri. I'm glad you enjoyed it and yes, another epic is on its way soon. Of course, Rhav is always speaking to me in the back of my mind, so Untamed Tales was born to continue with some of her adventures. Thanks for following along with me and I hope to keep you entertained.

Summary: This was a response to a challenge in a yahoo group I belong to titled 'What's your lover's favorite things.' The idea was to interview your favorite LotR character and then yourself. This was my silly version of an interview gone wrong. Thanks Brandy! Rated for suggestive material

Title: Chapter 1: Interview 1 - Legolas Reviewer: Irial Signed
Bahahaha what clever innuendos (did I spell that right?)
Hello again my friend. My laptop is still down so I grab snippets of stories whenever I can borrow a computer. It's been a while but although my story has staggered to a very unwelcome halt (in my opinion) I'd just like to let you know I'm still enjoying your works and love visiting this site just to read the gloriously entertaining writings of one such as you! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Oh my, Irial, thank you so much. Gosh, I wrote this so long ago it seems. Sorry to hear that your computer is still down. That really sucks, I know. Hope it gets fixed soon.

And wow Haldir! Now might be the time to introduce him to the phrase 'Jealousy makes you nasty'! I love this much like I love all your work. I wish I had your brain and skill. And imagination!! ~ Iri

Author's Response: This was the first time someone challenged me to write something and it was so much fun. I had just gotten back from the Florida Keys at the time and used a lot of my experience in this short piece.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Irial Signed
Pulchiritudinous? Awesome word!! Ten points at the spelling be for you!! This is a funny little item to sidetrack us. And I freely admit, my character at present has golden blonde locks. And astonishing green eyes : ) Guilty as charged!

Author's Response: I can spell pulchiritudinous, but don't ask me to pronounce it! Haha. As for your character, elements of a Mary Sue aren't bad. Thw hole package put together is quite awful! :)

Bahahahahahahahahaha I love your Nine Commandments!!! Oh I think I just gave myself a migraine from laughing so much! Whilst my character doesnt seem to be this far fetched I almost want to write a mock one just for fun and see how crazy I can get with her!! Thanks for the inspiration and I'll be sure to follow your rules and guidelines to perfection!!!

Author's Response: Crap. I guess I should've known this day would come. I should've realized this guide could be used for evil. Alas, I'm repsonsible for whatever beastly Sue you create. Let me know how bad she turns out....*shudder*. ;) Kidding. Glad you like the guide and have fun!!!

Nice touch! Really really cool. I love wolves and the idea of a telepathic wolf in Middle earth - priceless. Really keen to see how you involve him in the rest of the story!!

Author's Response: Thanks! Same, as you can probably guess I LOVE wolves but then again who doesn't? LOL! Yeah, Chaos will continue to be a main character in the story, and will develop more - but you'll just have to wait and see! LOL ^_^

I'm sooooo excited that I finally get to read the story between Antien and Glandur!! Awesome stuff!

Author's Response: Nice to see you here once again, Irial. I hope to add more short stories from time to time. Antien and Glandur are wonderful to write for. And for more stories, check out Lisse. She has written a couple stories for A/G and she makes them just as adorable. Thanks for reading.

Ooh, this chapter sent little shivers up my spine! I love their love, if you get me. It's so beautiful and deep and true. *sigh* You portray the two of them marvelously! Love these two to pieces! - Iri

Author's Response: They have become very close to my heart. When others started commenting on them from my other story, I knew I just had to give them their own story.
