Title: Chapter 34: Like I Care Reviewer: Irial Signed
Ah Gimli. He really is a kind of Prince Charming isn't he? Actually I think he's more like Shrek, just Adorable! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Yes *Sigh* He's very romantic in this story. He IS a lot like Shrek! I never even thought about that, but now that you say it, it makes a lot of sense. :D

Title: Chapter 38: A Trip to Florida...but not to DisneyWorld...WELCOME TO SUBURBIA! Reviewer: Irial Signed
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you're a fan of Johnny Depp? Another thing we have in common!

Author's Response: Guilty! I'm a Theatre Major, and I was slightly influenced by his style of acting. I'm also a big fan of Jim Carrey.

Title: Chapter 50: One year later.... Reviewer: Irial Signed
Well you had me laughing to the very end. Wonderfully written, Melda and I hope there's more to come from your genius brain! I had a ball reading this. Capital, my dear Melda. *Applause*

Author's Response: I have to say that I'm pretty proud of this story, too. I hope that you'll take the time to read the sequel. ;)

Untamed Tales by L8Bleumr Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 22]
Summary: Just because the story is over doesn't mean the adventures have ended. Here you will find a collection of tales based on my bigger story Taming The Wild. Each one will have a different rating. Not all will be NC-17. Characters will include but are not limited to: Legolas, Rhavaniel, Antien and Glandur. Here you'll find it all, humor, love, friendship and hot elf sex. This will be an ongoing thing as stories will be added whenever something inspires me. Enjoy.

Title: Chapter 4: The Tattoo - Part 1 of 4 Reviewer: Irial Signed
I love this challenge between Dwarves and Elves. Some things will never change will they??? - Iri

Author's Response: I don't think they would be the same if there wasn't some kind of animosity between them. Thanks again for the kind review.

Title: Chapter 2: The Bathing Room Reviewer: Irial Signed
Hahahaha I love that Rhav threw her shoes at him! That's just so typical of their playfullness. Great little story! - Iri

Author's Response: Thank you very much. So glad you liked it.

Title: Chapter 3: The Wedding Dress Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh my, this brings back memories of me trying to walk in my Deb dress. I know how Rhav feels!! I love how outraged Antien (dear Antien) was at her walk. So typical of the gay best friend. And the cheeky reminder of events in Helm's Deep brought a smile to my face. Another wonderful chapter L8Bleumr! - Iri

Author's Response: Rhav is a tough one. Not even a beautiful dress can change her warrior attitude. She really needs someone like Antien to keep her in check. Thanks for reading.

Title: Chapter 1: Chocolate Reviewer: Irial Signed
A fun, lively chapter! Poor Aragorn, if this is the effect chocolate has on Elves, Arwen is going to be VERY demanding! Love your work as always, L8Bleumr! - Iri

Author's Response: Thank you Iri. Your reviews are always so nice to see. Oh, and something tells me Aragorn would not complain. LOL ; - )

Title: Chapter 5: The Tattoo - Part 2 of 4 Reviewer: Irial Signed
Good Lord I don't think I've laughed quite so much during one of your chapters! This pretty much describes one of the best *quiet couple of drinks* I had recently.

So how's this for review love; you, sir, are without a doubt my fav author on this whole site. In fact I think I like you better than quite a few of my published authors!! (And no, I'm not drunk) It just had to be said. ~ Iri

Author's Response: I have to admit, I had a blast writing Rhav and Antien. They make such a great pair, especially for getting in trouble. And wow! I don't know what to say except thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful encouragement. I am blessed to have so many great reviewers, but this has to be the one of the kindest things I have been told. I am all smiles right now. Again, many, many thanks Iri. What you have just said makes this all worth while. ; - D

Title: Chapter 6: The Tattoo - Part 3 of 4 Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh Rhav is in so much trouble if she has a reciprocating tattoo!! Lisse I don't think I've read any of your work (you'd have a million reviews from me) but I think I might start. You have a very beautiful style of writing and great wit. An excellent addition!

Author's Response: Lisse is a very very dear friend and I was so happy to have her input for this part. She loves Antien and Glandur just as much, if not more than me and she does them justice. She also told me to tell you thank you very much for your kind words.

Title: Chapter 7: The Tattoo - Part 4 of 4 Reviewer: Irial Signed
Ahahahahahaha that's hilarious. Now Rhav has to get 'I Love Legolas...more' on the other cheek!!

Author's Response: LMAOROTF!!! Very clever of you. Now why hadn't I thought of that. Poor Rhav wouldn't be able to sit for a week. There wouldn't be any more room for advertising by the time we got through with her, lol.

Summary: This is a poem that I thought of about a year ago. It's going to be part of my book of poems that I hope to have published sometime within the next few years.

Stunning imagery! Wish I had your brain! Nice work Melda! - Iri

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Irial Signed
Very sad and beautiful x - Iri

Author's Response: Thank you. I always wondered how the trees felt about Lady Galadriel and Lord Celeborn leaving for Valinor. Because in the books it said that the Mallorns died out and I think I kind of saw that they died of broken hearts.

Title: Chapter 2: The Beauty in a Dwarf Reviewer: Irial Signed
Aw, this is great! I love dwarves! They're like grumpy, drunk, loud teddy bears! I want one. Well, I want Gimli. I think he's hilarious with a heart of gold. Good on you, giving voice to the Dwarves! Oh and great poem too ; ) - Iri

Author's Response: I know I just wanna hug him! He's wonderful. My favorite line from the movie is 'I'm wasted on Cross-Country! We Dwarves are natural sprinters! Very dangerous over short distances.' My fave lines from the book are when he describes the caverns of Helm's Deep. He's so passionate about them, his enthusiasm is to be admired.

Title: Chapter 1: Memories Reviewer: Irial Signed
What a lovely opening chapter. I really like the nature you've given the Elf and the reaction from the children. You've set the scene for what promises to be a beautiful story. It's always a pleasure to read your work ~ Iri

Author's Response: It is so nice to see you again Irial. Thanks for giving this story a shot. Itís definitely the most fun Iíve had writing so far. So welcome and enjoy the ride.

Oh what a touching scene! Beautifully written as always ~ Iri

Author's Response: Thanks!

Title: Chapter 6: Into The Night Reviewer: Irial Signed
Poor Taldred. Unrequited love hurts. But I hope their friendship in the times ahead will prove to be enough for him. What a gripping few chapters! Very exciting! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Taldred holds a special place in my heart. He is so taken with Terr, but he also understands that she doesnít return the feelings. They will always be friends though.
Date: Jan 03 2012
Title: Chapter 7: The Firien Wood Reviewer: Irial Signed
That kiss is the very definition of bittersweet. Wonderfully written! ~ Iri

Author's Response: I just couldnít let them part without at least one kiss and I wanted Taldred to be Terrís first. I knew heíd make it special.

Aw Terrwyn really doesn't have much luck does she? What a wonderful introduction for Legolas. I am still thoroughly enjoying this L8Bleumr, you have such an inspiring talent for story telling! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Thank you so much. Legolas always makes a good introduction doesnít he, no matter where when or why.
Date: Jan 03 2012
Title: Chapter 12: 12 Close Call Reviewer: Irial Signed
I love how all your stories can intertwine with each other. I loved your story about Rhavaniel and I had a feeling that this might be the wife Legolas mentioned in the previous chapter!

Author's Response: It is so odd how new stories can branch off from old ones. And I think a lot of it has to do with readers interest in certain characters. It makes me want to tell their stories too. What can I say about Rhav? She wasnít ready to give up the spotlight yet and who am I to argue with her, lol?
Date: Jan 03 2012
Title: Chapter 15: 15 Confessions Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh poor Terrwyn. She's lucky to have been brought before Rhavaniel though.

Author's Response: I think Rhav was good for this. Sheís had her own set up difficulties and can relate to what Terr might be going through. Rhav sees something in Terr as will other elves in this story. The fair folk are always good for seeing peopleís worth, not just their mistakes.

Title: Chapter 16: 16 Uncertain Prospects Reviewer: Irial Signed
I'm afraid I'm starting to sound a bit like a broken record but the truth deserves to be told again and again: you are an extremely talented writer. You get all the emotions across so wonderfully I can feel what your characters feel. You have a gift. You should think about publishing, if you haven't already. And if you have I want to know what it is and where I can find it! :) ~ Iri

Author's Response: Well, thank you so much for the encouragement. Actually, I have given a lot of thought about writing my own story. I would really like to give it a try. I just have to come up with the right setting and do my research, but I think it might happen one day. This story is the closest Iíve come to writing my own while still playing in Tolkienís world and Iím having more fun than Iíve ever had.

Oh my gosh how frustrating is Feredir? I find myself getting annoyed with him as much as Terrwyn! All due to your excellent writing ability my friend! ~ Iri

Author's Response: LOL, they are pretty frustrating arenít they? Both stubborn to no end. They are made for each other.

Title: Chapter 22: 22 Deep in Ithilien Reviewer: Irial Signed
Wow...just wow. Did not see that coming. I nearly wish Terrwyn had got him where it hurts. A swift boot up the ass might do him some good!

Author's Response: I love it, lol. Fer could use a good kick I suppose.

Title: Chapter 24: 24 One Last Fling Reviewer: Irial Signed
Oh my heart aches for Feona. She's got some kind of strength to encourage Feredir, despite her feelings for him. Beautifully written L8Bleumr ~ Iri

Author's Response: Feona is another side character that has really warmed my heart. I would really love to tell her story someday. I guess what she has with Fer is something of convenience. I would not say it is love, but definitely longing. I think sheís been through a lot in her past too, which is why she can find it within herself to send Fer on his way. Donít worry for her though. She wonít be alone for long. Sheís very self-sufficient.

Title: Chapter 26: 26 The Healer's Wife Reviewer: Irial Signed
Look up the phrase 'Stubborn as a mule' and you'll be sure to find a picture of Terrwyn chopping all that wood!! I'm glad Feredir is finally showing a more likeable side. I hope it lasts!

Author's Response: LOL. I can't really blame her though. Feredir would have the last word and that make me nuts, but he needed to show her his softer side.
