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, 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!

Summary: The world changes as the ages pass never standing for anyone. 100 or so years after the fourth age everything was forgotten. The elves were not even a distant memory, Hobbits were a faint rumor in the woods of the north only believed by children. It was truly now the dominion of men. Even the countries were changed, Mordor was no longer a place of despair, only an endless grassy plain in which a mountain, an extinct volcano its is thought by ones who have been in it, is the only relief of endless grass. Rohan's borders now stretched to include what once was called mordor. This is a mountainous region where hunting cats lurk. But evil is multiplying again in the world although the reason is shrouded in mystery. Travelers are disappearing in the wild, especially in rohan. It is a time of doubt in the councils of the wise of the world. evil creeps back into the forests of the world. The inhabitants of Ard-Galen, the endless plain of grass, know nothing of these troubles though, for the mountains cut the off from the rest of the world. The region between them and Rohan is wild, unknown growth from the end of the plain to the feet of the mountains.

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.

This is basically me having a good laugh by making all of the characters very unlike themselves. This also includes some fandom bashing. If you think you will be offended, go no further...

*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.

Thank you for a very funny read.

Summary: In the decades before the War of the Ring, Ithilien was a no man's land, periodically contested and occupied by bands of Orcs from Mordor and troops of rangers from Emyn Arnen and Minas Tirith. Among the rangers' ranks was a young scout, a stalwart lad by the name of Pocosin. He came from a small farming community near the banks of the River Serni in central Lebennin. This story takes place in the Ithilien woods about a dozen years before the War of the Ring. A sequel to The Lucky Arrow.

*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. ^_^

Nicely done - you integrated it really well into the seriousness of the tale's atmosphere (you're very good at that)... though I must say I had to read Lira's review before I could figure out quite what it was. I thought it was some sort of mp3 player initially. Anyway, as I said, nicely done.

Author's Response: Well, I guess it could have been an MP3 player. I can just imagine Turin having a cursed iPod.

*smiles* You're very welcome for the toy spider. I'm delighted it inspired you!

You telling Haldir to "GEEZ! Don't do that!" cracked me up. XD

By the way, I wonder what the elves of the wood think about this strange mortal who loudly tramps around the wood huffing and puffing and... thought it'd be interesting to hear their gossip. XDXDXD

Author's Response: The spider stuck in my head, it actually inspired the whole scene in the mirror.

The elves are going to keep sneaking up on her throughout the story, but she\'s trying her best to be as quiet as possible, too.

I like the idea of elven gossip. I\'m going to have to use that!

Thank you for reviewing, I really need the feedback. I was getting desperate without it.

IT'S RAINING ELVES! HALLELUJAH!

Mwaha! Couldn't resist writing that. XDXDXD

Honestly, I think this is my all new favourite chapter. I loved how you described her fighting those orcs in tune with that song (which I don't know, but it worked very well). Excellent! Also loved how she almost took off her elvish companion's head... yes. And I laughed re Gollum throwing rocks at elveses and actually managing to hit them. XD

Absolutely adored this one. Am looking forward to the next chapter. Very much so. (^___^)

Author's Response: Glad you liked it! Battle scenes are harder to write and I wasn\'t sure it would come across the way it was in my head.

It was a young elf, he\'s not used to things in HIS trees! Besides, I always pictured Hobbits (and Gollum) as being really good at throwing stones, I think Tolkien even wrote about one of them, Sam maybe.

I\'m looking forward to the next chapter too!
