I really enjoyed reading this story, Zhie. It made me laugh. I especially liked the interaction between the characters, Orophin's creative distraction and fixation on the title, and Haldir's straightness. Thank you for sharing this piece.
This is actually the second time I've read this story. I don't know if I read it elsewhere the first time and commented on it there or not... Regardless, I really enjoyed reading this story on both occasions and the story has stayed with me. I really, really like the idea of Glorfindel being taken with the idea of diving to see Gondolin, and you've presented the idea so well and wittily. So thank you again for a very enjoyable read.
Oh that's adorable! I love it. The ending is so sweet and funny, full of your quirky humor, at the same time. Thanks for giving me a big smile, Zhie. I really enjoyed reading this piece.
Oh, I love the topic! Thuringwethil and the vampires of Arda do not get enough attention.
I won't quibble about your use of modern language and contractions in elf speech, but have you considered putting more white space between your paragraphs? I find it increases online readability anyway.
Author's Response: that might be a good idea, i think. I\'ll try it!
Hehehe. Elladan isn't listening at all. And don't you hate it when you get caught without pockets? *grins* Good one, Gemini, and thank you so so much for the dedication. So glad "Stamina" could inspire you. *big hugs* x
Author's Response: YAY! *BIG HUGS* SOO happy you reviewed this! I LOVE your work! Heheh, Elladan\'s too busy planning ahead for the night! XD
This is just to let you know that I have removed the picture in your summary for this story, "An Elven Tale: The Fourth Age". Although the coding used in the site's layout allows for pictures to be included in summaries, we prefer it if members do not place images in summaries to make it easier for members with slow internet connections to browse the site. Please feel free, however, to include the picture within the body of your story.
All the best.
I really enjoyed this, Aerlinniel. Informative, quick, fun, and very easy to read. A lovely little concise piece of work. Thank you very much. :)
Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed it. I worked hard on it! ~Mel
Please spell and grammar check your story as soon as possible. Also, I recommend you make your quotation marks (whether curly or straight) consistent throughout the fic and leave a line of blank space between paragraphs to increase readability.
Hem, hem... hehehehe. I do like the ending (and the inclusion of Lindir). xD This is a lovely piece, Ria. Well described, absorbing, great flow... and the game, amazingly for someone like me with nil interest in sports, really engaged me. Great work! Thank you for a very enjoyable read and the dedication. *hugs*
Author's Response: Thanks, and thanks. I needed an elf for Sam to be pestering, and I chose Lindir because I thought you\'d enjoy it. The game is based on disc golf. I\'m terrible at it, but it\'s the most Hobbity game I know. Tolkien mentions that Bullroarer invented golf, so I had his great nephews invent disc golf.
Notgollum, please correct your spelling and grammar immediately. ~Admin
*laughs* Great job!
Loved it - you've combined the texts excellently! I need to rewatch the Holy Grail; this cracked me up.
"He's already got one" *snickers* Again, very nicely done.
*laughs* Again, I loved it. Cheered me right up. Thanks.
If 9 takes off, I think Dwarven helmets may develop their own axehead crown to catch leapfrogging crotches. :P
Re 10, that'd be a nice excuse to barge into the male bathroom.
I laughed at quite a few of these - thanks.
Author's Response: Haha! What an interesting invention. Thanks for the review :D
*sniggers* I giggled frequently and copiously as I read this story. There are some gem images in this story: pregnant Legolas peering up Elrond's nose with his reading glasses insitu, Erestor fanning Elrond with a palm leaf, Boromir dragging random items from Elrond's nose, a gold Gimli in the lotus position, and Legolas guzzling Elrond's nutritious ball of snot.
It's an utterly mad piece and I loved reading it. Thank you.
"He grabbed the front of his regulation Galadhrim tunic and with a mighty yank, he tore it from his body to"
That's when I started sniggering and I didn't stop. Thank you for a partially incomprehensible, infectiously cheerful, completely balmy, very funny, and ultimately delightful story. Great work!
Hehehe. I love the end; it's wonderful; it made me chuckle. Very, very nicely done, Ria, and thanks so much for meeting the challenge. I'm delighted that it inspired you.
Author's Response: Thank you. I loved your predatory Santa too.
*sniggers* It did droop a bit towards the end, but it's still damn funny. I'd certainly be pleased to sample any additional chapters.
I especially love the exchange between Gandalf and Frodo... especially the bit about Gandalf missing Frodo's puppy eyes.
Thank you for a very funny read.
*laughs* Ah, I giggled throughout this one. Didn't understand the words and I guess I didn't need to -- really loved the premise that elves would make up all these bizarre words. Makes me think that maybe there're few words named after elves as well. XD Also loved the interactions between the two characters -- deftly handled.
Enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing. ^_^
