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.
Nicely done. I especially enjoyed the description of Radagast's robes being the same colour as the earth (and thus reducing the number of washes required). I'm so pleased the challenge inspired you. Thank you for answering it. ~Susan (sylc)
Author's Response: Oh sure! It was my pleasure. Thank you again Susan, your reviews always put a smile on my face.
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!
Gracious I missed my reviewers!
2... hahaha! I feel sorry for the hand of the fellow council member who shakes such a sleeper awake. May the drool be extra doggy slobbery.
Author's Response: Haha thanks sylc!
This story stirred up all my warm, fuzzy, squeey feelings for these elflings. I especially enjoyed reading about Elrond's and Elrohir's consideration for keeping the secret of Adar Rhiw from their siblings. Thank you for sharing this sweet and adorable story.
Oh, gosh, this story brought tears to my eyes. I don't really know what to say... It was just... it hit all the right spots with me and really moved me. It's beautifully crafted. I'm very surprised that there aren't any other reviews for it as yet. Thank you so very much for sharing it. I'm adding it to my favourites.
This is your first fanfiction? I'm impressed! Well done! This story is sweet and cute, your Estel is endearing and I love the tolerance and supportiveness of his adoptive family. Thanks for an enjoyable read.
Author's Response: I just like little Estel! Thank you. I'd almost forgotten about this story. I've grown so much since then. Thanks for reading. I also have another account here: Daewen.
Oh, this is a lovely tale. Thoughtful and sweet... and you've made me think better of snores. I enjoyed this; thanks, Ria.
Author's Response: I have to confess that the original bunny came out of my personal experience: I made my peace with most snoring several years ago.
Bloopers happen, it's a part of the movie-making process. Lord of the Rings, epic as it is, is no exception. Here's a list of humorous sights I've seen during the films!
Thanks for sharing these, callerofcrows. I've never managed to spot a blooper (I'm really bad at spying them), but with your help I'll know where to look on my next "Lord of the Rings" trilogy movie marathon. Thanks again!
It's not a problem! I'm glad that you liked this little blurb and I hope that you enjoy finding the bloopers I pointed out. Who knows? Maybe you'll start spotting several of your own. :-D I hope that this piece made you laugh, and that when you find the little oops moments in the trilogy that you laugh as well!
This story made me laugh! Oh, I really enjoyed reading this piece, Ria. Thank you for sharing it.
Author's Response: Well, the silly muse escaped and went capering over the page naked (except for her clown wig and swim flippers). I'm glad if it entertains other people besides myself.
