Hmmm, and the plot thickens. I love it. Can't wait to see where this development leads. Thanks for another chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks for keeping the reviews coming. More on the way soon.
Thanks for the update. I'm still hooked :) I was wondering... Since this isn't a typical, follow the course of the books story, will Legolas be finding his way to Elrond and the fellowship or do you have something else in mind?
Author's Response: Sorry it took a little longer to update, but it was spring break at my house and that left me with very little time for writing. I'm back now, and hope to have another chp by the end of the week. Well, to answer your question, Legolas will not be going to Imladris. At this point in the story, the Council has already taken place and the fellowship has split up. However, Legolas will meet what's left of the fellowship, in my own twisted way, and he will eventually go to Lothlorien. That's about all I can say for now, since I haven't written most of it yet, and sometimes things change. But it's definitely Lorien, not Rivendell where Legolas will end up.
Oh thank you, thank you, thank you. You know I'm a sucker for a possible Legolas-Eowyn relationship so that kiss was most enjoyable to read about. I know they're just friends though and likely to stay that way.
Nice chapter. Sad, but nice. I'm blown away by how you described that kiss. It was beautiful. You are truly a talented writer. I was so drawn in I almost felt like I was there.
I'm really enjoying Legolas in this setting among humans and I'm also enjoying the humans themselves lol. Thanks for updating. Can't wait for more.
Author's Response: So nice to hear from you. Thanks for your nice comments. You are right about Legs and Eowyn. They are just friends and that is all. But if your first kiss could be with an elf, wouldn't you make it happen? I think Eowyn and Faramir are definitely the best choice for each other ... eventually. I've got other plans for Legi though. I just need to write them. Thanks for sticking with me and I'll try to update a little faster.
Ah... Makes sense. Think my brain was still a bit fried from exams. Thanks :)
Ah sorry for being gone so long. I was writing exams and had to practice great restraint. Super glad to be back though. Thanks for a great chapter, I enjoy reading about Legolas in love. Funny though I found my reaction to the part at the end between Legolas and Eowyn quite interesting. All of sudden I wanted that to be the beginning of something more. Lol I'm not sure why I feel that way.
By the way, it crossed my mind while reading, I'm not very knowledgable about all things elf so what happens if Legolas "does the deed" before his majority?
Thanks again and can't wait for more :)
Author's Response: Legolas and Eowyn have a special kind of relationship, but they really are just friends. Neither one would want to do anything to damage that friendship. As far as your question about Legolas and his majority, I just have one thing to say ... fanfiction. Legolas' story is already much different than originally written so I'm not following any canon rules here. Had he been raised by elves, I'm sure things would be much different, but he's lived with humans longer than elves by now and has adopted their traditions, and that includes "doing the deed" lol. Right now his hormones are racing and he's not thinking about humans vs. elves, immortality vs. mortality. He's pretty much using Theodred and Eomer as examples, but don't worry. He'll still have some morals. ; - )
I think you're right, it hasn't been explained anywhere and for that I thank you for all the liberties taken :) It makes for a good read and is very convincing.
I'm glad Legolas has tipped the guys off about that creepy worm's obsession with poor Eowyn lol it gives me hope. As for Legolas and his love... Poor thing... I'm biting my nails wondering what comes next.
Thanks for another well written chapter. Your story telling abilities are exceptional. Look forward to more.
Author's Response: And thank you for another review! I'm happy to know you are enjoying this story. As for Legolas, he'll not take Luta's news too well, but he will redirect his anger. Grima better look over his shoulder.
Ah it feels so good to be back. I've been unable to access this site for what seems like forever.
Oh, things are hotting up now. Looks like the ominous dark cloud will soon be releasing its showers of war and woe.
Though I enjoy reading about the elf's battle skills (very sexy), I'm glad Legolas gets to keep an eye on things at home which promises training for poor Eowyn so she can at least get some air now and then.
Hope all goes well for Rohan's princes yet I fear that I'll be saying goodbye to one of them soon.
Anyway, let me stop making assumptions and look forward to the next chapter.
Thank you for the update. (",)
Author's Response: Glad you're back. Yes, Legolas is back home, but there is a twist coming. Dark days are definitely falling upon them all.
Been reading The Two Towers, again, and got to the part when the three hunters meet Eomer and his riders. As he spoke of himself and HIS eored I was immediately taken back to the scene in your story when he spoke to his men and formed a bond with them securing their allegience.
It struck me then that not only are you a talent writer but you also see things in stories that others might miss. Myself for one.
Whether intentional or not, its a lovely filler. It give me a new or deeper understanding of the love and loyalty between Eomer and the people of Rohan. It makes total sense now why they could follow him so easily as if he were always meant to be King.
Thanks for that.
Author's Response: I cannot tell you what a great feeling you've given me. I've always liked Eomer's character. What a strong, honorable, and confident man he must have been. And yes, I intentionally wanted to show that bonding with his men, as well as his love for his people and country. I've always thought that the Rohirrim were the most proud people. They are a young and growing country compared to other places. They have a lot to prove and need strong leaders. I'm so happy I could spark something with my writing. What a huge compliment you've given me. Thank you so much ; - )
Oh no Legolas... How could he allow that vile woman to trap him like that... And her... Has she not a shred of goodness in her that would not even think twice about hurting this wonderful elf. Super despise that worm right now and wish I could teach that woman the real meaning of pain for bringing Legolas' good and respectable name and into question. Oh, can't wait to see all the worm's plans and desires go up in flames.
Author's Response: Now you can see why Grima chose Rota to do the dirty deed. He knew she would be irresistable to Legolas, and she would get the job done.
Oh my... It truely pains me to read about Legolas in such a degrading, unforgiving and altogether wretched place. Poor elf. That the devious worm seems to be getting his way (for now at least) really grates my gall. I know things will get better though so I'm hanging in there with you as always :). Looking forward to your next installment. Can't wait to see where this is headed and what's in store for our tortured elf. Thanks for the update and thanks for not deserting your readers. We deeply appreciate it.
Author's Response: Things are always darkest before the dawn, you could say. And Grima will get his sooner or later, probably later. I'm glad to see you're still hanging with me. And no worries about desertion. I never leave a story unfinished. I hate that kind of thing myself and know how disappointing it is to never know what happened. More on the way soon. Always good to see you Luvbukz.
Thank you for updating. Please continue to update. I think I'd die if you abandoned this story and I was left wanting... Again thanks.
This was enjoyable to read. Thanks. Please, keep writing.
Please don't think that I meant it in a bad way. I read your bio and that's how I know that English is not your first language. You are clearly a very intelligent person and I actually admire the fact that you are able to write as well as you do in a language that is not native to you. I only suggested it because I see that your story has alot of potential and having a "beta" I think its called could really help. It does take more time but its worth it in the end. Maybe you could even approach someone on this site if they're not too busy with their own stuff that could be great. Hope my review was helpful :) keep writing.
Author's Response: Thanks, Going to see if I can find one. I don't take that in the bad way. I like when people give me this knid of reviews, sens then i can know what i need to fix or do better.
I must admit in at the start I thought you OC seemed to be on the outside of the story just going along but now I see she'll be more central to the story. Thats good.
I've noticed your spelling and grammar needs some work. Since English is not your first language, why don't you get someone to proof read your stuff and correct mistakes. There are many capable people on this site alone. That should improve the reading experience :)
I don't enjoy reading about rape or slash so I'm going to give this story a skip but wel done and thanks for sharing your writing.
Author's Response: I know my grammar isn't the bets, and no English it not my first language. I can't find anyone that have the time to fix it. Thanks that you took your time to read this story.
I like how you started. The Wizard approaching the woman in the clearing, conversation and beginning of a quest that will likely turn to be harder and longer than imagined. It was a good introduction (reminiscant of the Shannara stories, to me anyway) . It really grabbed my attention so well done. Ok I'm gonna read your next chapters will review again.
