Goodness, what a dark twist! And delivered so coolly. Very effective. Thanks for sharing.
Author's Response: Thanks.
*grins* Your little Estel stories are so adorable and realistic, Numenora. Thanks for putting a big smile on my face.
Author's Response: You are very welcome and thank you for returning the favor! I am smiling as I type this response to you kind review. *big hug*
I enjoyed this story. I really like the idea of Arwen unwittingly inspiring a misconception about elves. I also enjoyed your portrayal of her friendship with Eowyn. Thank you for sharing this piece.
Author's Response: thanks! If you're a fan of other works besides Tolkien, I've also got a lot of fanfic on fanfiction.net
Made me smile. (^_^)
*rereads last section* Ah! How evil of Elrond to make his staff babysit double trouble (though it makes complete sense - leaders always delegate the hard tasks such and such *sighs*).
Author's Response: Thanks Susan! :) Yes, Elrond is rather \"evil\" to Glorfindel. Of course leaders always avoid the hard things. \"How else would you do the easy things?\"
Please only use three dots in your ellipses. Please also correctly format your story as a courtesy to your readers. ~Admin
*snickers* Nice one. The city did look pretty decked out.
Please spell check, grammar-check, and properly format your story as a courtesy to your readers. ~Admin
I really enjoyed reading this short story, Numenora. It's concise, cleverly written, cheeky, and the twist is delightful. Lovely work, yet again, from you.
Author's Response: You are so sweet--Thank you, sweetie! I'm truly pleased you liked it. *hugs*
Please grammar-check and format your story correctly as a courtesy to your readers. ~Admin
I love it when the written word creates immediate, tangible images in my head. This brief drabble does exactly that - a breathless, joyous, starved reunion. Thanks, Numenora.
Author's Response: You are so welcome and thank you for your wonderful feedback! You make me glad that I write. :)
I really enjoyed reading this deftly written story and am so glad I found it. The way you've conveyed the environments, and especially the transition from the gritty reality of the storm to the sensual peace, is just wonderful. Thank you for an enjoyable read.
Yes, I prefer bolded to underlined titles... though now they attract perhaps more attention than necessary... hm.
I usually put titles in just italics... but I guess that might confuse them with the thought and in-elvish sections. Maybe not, though... For your information, I had no problem discerning between thought and in-elvish. Ulp, I'm babbling and possibly making you stress. Sorry.
Author's Response: Hey, ALL feedback is appreciated. Even though I\'m really bad about comma splices I try to keep things as grammatically sound as possible. It\'s a pet peeve of mine when I read a story and get hung up on a misspelling or a typo and have to reread something to understand it. I\'m glad the italics aren\'t confusing. I had to denote thoughts somehow. Foriegn words are usually in italics in literature, too. Without underlining (which as you said is particular to links) bold text was the only way to go for book and movie titles. Glad you are enjoying the story. I\'m almost becoming obsessed with it, myself.
Hee - love the 'see author's note above' XD Made me giggle... and just so you know, it didn't distract me from enjoying the story.
Author's Response: Glad to hear it. Much of what I write is fairly accurate, but I\'d rather not have lawyers tracking me down, you know?
You just get better and better... I almost cried. 'Modern' medicine meets elvish medicine... and so beautifully handled. Beautiful work.
Author's Response: Thank you! A lot of the herblore and especially the dandelions came directly from a conversation I had with my mother. You would not believe how much feedback I\'m getting and how much it helps!
Mwah! Mwah! Mwah! *kisses the fic* This fic is a real treasure; I absolutely love it! (*_*) Flippant, wonderfully written, full of gorgeously portrayed elves, and so hilarious! Thank you for a wonderful read! *favourites*
Author's Response: Hey! A new reader! Thanks for the support. I have to stop myself every now and then because my character gets too serious and starts talking like the elves, you know, too proper. I step back and re-write it until she comes back to earth.
By the way, I'm very much looking forward to finding out what's with those berries. *quivers with the suspense* I can't even think of a clue! (>_
Author's Response: I hope I\'m not building it up too much, but I\'ve figured out what the berries are. You\'ll just have to wait another couple of chapters to find out.
Lindir's 'idiot child' speech was where I started laughing for these updates. XD
Sexy berries? Is that it?
Author's Response: You\'re getting very warm. Not to worry, Bilbo will finally tell her what they are in Chapter 10.
KyaHAha! Oh my, your poor Mary-Sue... and poor Elrond. The 'It itched terribly' line cracked me up.
Good to see an elf being genuinely friendly and kind towards her (or at least not laughing at her in her presence).
Again, wonderful work.
Author's Response: In the elves\' defense, she is a filthy stray human. A stranger in bad times and she has secrets. Besides, when you find out what the berries are, you\'ll know why the elves were laughing.
Even if she looks dreadful, in this chapter, she hasn't been made fun of, is in a comfortable place, and nothing awful has happened to her. All the worst is over and things are now looking up for her, I hope? Probably not, which is good for the story's brilliance, but I'm happy for her brief respite from her torment.
I want an elf to eat one of those berries.
Author's Response: Things are definitely looking up for her. I believe things will stay good, at least until she leaves Rivendell . . . but that\'s for later. Thanks for your support, when I get stumped, the reviews really get me going again.
YAY! I was right! *nodsnods* XDXDXD You know, every time Glorfindel gets mentioned, I get very warm fuzzy fangirl feelings; guess you're spot on with hitting my taste in his character in fanfic. (^_~)
Another happy chapter for the Mary-Sue. Glad to read that her sunburn is fading away.
As always, I loved it and am very much looking forward to the next chapter. Thanks for a lovely read (and being prompt in your response to my comments; I appreciate it)!
Author's Response: Got a soft spot for Glorfindel, do you? I felt a little stilted writing that chapter, but today I reread it and I\'m pretty happy with it. We\'ve got a typhoon blowing here, so I\'m not sure if I\'ll be able to write again tonight. I\'ve got some ideas about my heroine\'s meeting with Lindir and I\'ll probably take some time to describe the Last Homely House in the next chapter as well. Thanks for the feedback!
