You know, love, if all Sues were as well thought out as yours here, there'd be far fewer calls from me to you at 2 AM, howling about whom I'll mutilate.

Thank you for dedicating it to me, darling. I am actually a little speechless and am feeling remarkably loved. And it's a Mary Sue parody...My God, you really do know me very well!

You're absolutely lovely and the story is hysterical. More, more, more :)

Into M.E. by Varia Lectio Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 5]

It's an interesting idea to pair off Eowyn with one of the Elves but timing-wise it's not very accurate. At that point she would have already met Faramir and fallen in love with him. You make no mention of him.
There are a lot of rhetorical questions out there. Watch out for those. Also, don't repeat yourself quite as much. You stated already that Elladan relied heavily on his twin brother (incidentally, "twin" is always spelled with a lower case "t"). There's really no need to repeat yourself.

I came over from the Forums to read your story. Curious...definitely, definitely curious. When you said you had odd pairings, you weren't kidding, were you?

This is very descriptive and pretty well written. I couldn't find much wrong with it other than it was in the wrong category and did not have an AU warning.

Tolkien Book Verse is for canon-friendly stories only and LotR section is more lenient. I also made this story AU because Old Took's sexuality was determined and thus, if he's gay, it's going to be AU. I hope that makes sense.

I moved the stories for you. I hope you will not mind. If the rules are confusing you, there's going to be an update soon :)

Date: 17/12/04 Title: Chapter 2: Elrond

Arwen playing pranks...Very intriguing.

What I find very distracting about your story is you constantly changing tenses.
"The man puts a sleeping spell on the three boys" is in present tense but then the rest of the story continues in past tense.
It's not necessary to switch around so much or at all for that matter. Keep it all in one tense.

All of the chapters have the same title. Was that intentional? I must say it's original but ...You can see the titles in the actual text but you might want to put that title in the control panel instead of leaving it all "Elrond".

There are a few mistakes so please pay careful attention to your spell check or get a beta reader. We have betas at the Forums so you don't have to go very far to look.

Author's Response: Yeah, I'm sorry about the past present mistake, I tried to fix that over and over, but when I uploaded it kept reverting back. I really thought I had it this time. The Elrond chapter title thing was a mistake too, I will try to fix these things as soon as possible.

Interesting subject matter. I liked this but since you have quite a few spelling and grammatical errors, I strongly suggest that you get a beta reader.

I am not sure if Aragorn would ever call Elrond "ada". Yes, Elrond did bring him up but Aragorn always knew that Arathorn was his father because Gilraen (his mother) always made a point of him knowing that, his heritage, etc.

I enjoy reading your stories but you might want to pay attention to these little things. They will make your stories a lot better!

Very sweet. I really enjoyed it. It has a few modernisms though:
"that says something right there", "Prince Charming", "Knight in Shining Armour", etc. Since Éowyn is writing this quite some time before these phrases were invented, you might want to substitute them with something else.

There are some grammatical mistakes and some sentences seem a bit awkward because they stop almost mid-breath (hope that makes sense). It matches the mood, Éowyn trying to explain everything, etc. but try to make them flow a bit more.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this. You captured her feelings very well.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I appreciate your honesty. I will look through the piece and make the necessary adjustments.

I am somewhat confused right now. Why is the entire cast of the Lord of the Rings in the 21st century? There isn't much of an introduction and it seems a bit disjointed.

Keri doesn't like Gimli or Arwen? Why? There isn't an explanation. While you may bring up all of that in latter chapters, it's usually best to explain some of the obvious things in the first chapter.

There are orthographic errors like Camilla pointed out. Perhaps it might be best if you got yourself a beta reader. Also you might find this site (http://realelvish.tripod.com/sindarin_phrase_book) very useful. Actually, concerning Elvish, Tolkien himself said that it is not possible to be fluent in that tongue. You may know some phrases, etc. but Elvish is not something one in 21st century U.S. would be fluent in...ever!

Good luck with this.

Author's Response: Ok, they aren't in the twenty first century. And it does go on to explain that. They are in Middle Earth. I'm sorry that i failed to explain why Keri doesn't like Arwen and Gimli. I can tell you right now that she doesn't like Arwen because she doesn't think that she did much of anything for the Fellowship. Her reason for not liking Gimli is that she was picked on by other kids at school when they were saying that she loved Gimli. Again, they are not in the twenty first century they are in Middle Earth, so it would be possible for a girl who's best friend is an elf to be good at speaking elvish. Thank you for sending me a review, though. And thank you for asking questions. It not only helps me to repair my work, but it shows that you are a good reader. Thanks for the support.

Author's Response: Me again. I just have a question. Other than not really understanding a few things, did you like my story and understand most of it? Thanks. God Bless, Lindariel Rimdur

Also the chapters are quite short as well. You do get right to the point but sometimes some background information, details, etc. are a very good idea.

I doubt that modern words like "OK" would be used by Middle earth characters. Try to stay in character.
Have someone read your work and correct your mistakes. You have a bunch of completely unnecessary commas such as "are you, angry?"

Reviewer: Anais Signed
Date: 04/08/05 Title: Chapter 2: The Truth

Elves don't cheat on each other. Ever! They are bonded for life and it's only very rare that they leave each other. I can only think of two as a matter of fact.
Tolkien stressed over and over again that Elves have only one mate for their whole lives. Cheating is somewhat far-fetched and you might really want to explain why Talathiel would do something like that.
Make sure to proof read your work. There are some errors.
