Summary: Twelve hundred years after the Second War for the Ring the elves still walk among men. The Valars' promises and prophesies of the Undying Lands have been proven false as Earth and Middle Earth merged into one realm.

What happened to the elves? Do they still walk among us today? Is it possible that there are other "inaccuracies" in the Tolkien Universe?

the shared kiss with Daniel was totally unexpected. Again, even though Maria apparently did not object to the kiss, it's good to know that she still try to listen to her voice of reason. good chapter!

Love that your character deviates from normal average woman, and you presents her as someone strong and assertive. Definitely with spunk. I'm getting excited with how you are going with this story. Can there be a possibility of her hooking with the handsome Lucas? Lucky Maria.

Who is this mysterious character at the barstool? Another elf?? Good to see that Maria actually have a best friend. And I admire her spunk at handling Anita. Another wonderful chapter!

Author's Response: All I can say at this juncture is you should keep reading.

Talking about very awkward moment for Maria. I like Maria; she's this no nonsense type. Can't wait to find the story of the interesting characters gathered in the kitchen. Thanks for your story.

I always read that elves do not engage in casual encounters, and when your Legolas character (I'm assuming Lucas is Legolas of Greenwood) goes through short term flings, I wondered what lead him to do it. Is it because he's lonely? Something to appease his restlessness or bring him relief from despair or loneliness? Anyway, just a though.

Author's Response: Yes, in Tolkien's Middle Earth the elves do not engage in casual sexual encounters. J.R.R. Tolkien was a staunch Roman Catholic who conveyed those values through his characters and stories. As a Roman Catholic, I was taught many of the same doctrines and lessons with regard to love, sex, and marriage. In my own analysis, Tolkien's elves are the equivalent of angels and therefore express that perfection. It is important to remember that Middle Earth, Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship, and the one ring are all fictional. The premise of my story is that the fictional world of Tolkien is real, hence a fiction within a fiction. I am playing with Tolkien's universe and so I have strayed from the strict canons with which we are familiar. This is an alternative universe with many 'what-ifs.' Much of the fanfiction published here is based on the creative imaginations of the authors. If I was even half as talented as the late Professor Tolkien, I would have my own fantastical universe within which I could play.

I have not logged on to LOTRfanfiction for over 2, 3 years, and I could not remember my info. I wanted to give a review as your story was the first one in many years that made me actually read the whole chapter. Good beginning! You hooked me with questions of my own. What was the girl's background? Where did she learn of this job? How was she interviewed? how on earth of all place did she find herself working for the impossibly dream boat of an employer. Keep the chapters coming! I'm so loving your story.

Author's Response: All shall revealed in time.
