Author's Response: Little Bari will be getting his Papa back. In what state, I'm not sure, but he will be back. Balian tends to keep his promises :) Thanks for the review. *hugs*
Captain John Smith! No...Captain Joe Swann? Captain...What IS the answer to that question...? ;)
Author's Response: Feeding my sadistic side too :P I'll leave you to figure out the answer to the question ;) Thanks for reviewing.
keep up the good work x
I like Balian very much, so I tend to give him a hard time ;) Doesn't make much sense, I know. The traitors in Gondor just add to the fun.
Thanks for the review.
in response to what you said to my last review. i know what you mean about the swords, i have theodens sword herugrim and i can only just lift it never mind fight with it hehe.
thanks for writing and keep up the good work x
Will trying to beat up Jack is inevitable :) It was fun to throw that in. Sarvenaz is pure villain, and she'll prove it ;)
I agree that Achilles in Gondorian armour would look very weird, and that's probably part of why he was so nervous. He's afraid he might look like an idiot.
You're lucky, to have one of those swords. I want a crusader one, but I haven't found a shop which sells them yet.
Thank you for reviewing.
lol, I wouldn't trust Guy's competence either if I was Narbazanes...
Sarvenaz is very convincing, no need to kill her off worrywart.
LOL, yes, I see why the words Balian and Tact are never together in the same sentence...XD Keep it up and congrats on the nomination!
I really don't know what booboo's are. :P I just know that little children find it hard to say bye bye, so I needed a substitution :) What a coincidence.
I do worry overmuch. Glad you thought Sarvenaz was convincing though. I'm sure I based her off one of the many characters which I know...can't remember which one.
'Balian' and 'tact' can be in the same sentence ;) as in 'Balian has no tact at all.'
Thanks for the review and the congrats *huggles*.
Author's Response: Thanks very much for the review. Do you think Xerxes is a bit of a Gary Stu??? I don't really want my OC's taking over the story. The women will need to know how to fight. It will come in very handy later on...I won't reveal too much just yet :P Achilles idolizes Aragorn as 'a king who fights his own battles'. It's funny, actually.
great detail and i love the womens little rebellion with learning to fight.
keep up the good work and thanks for sharing this
Author's Response: Marton Csoskas did a wonderful job with Guy, I thought. Glad you liked the rebellious ladies. However, they'll find fighting less easier than they'd originally thought. Those swords are about 10 pounds each, at the very least. Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: I'm not sure I'm the one who comes up with the jokes. *takes off hat to Captain Jack Sparrow*. I'm still trying to get onto the main plot. People don't seem to want to hurry up ;) Thanks very much for the review! *hugs*
Author's Response: I'm glad you didn't think it was boring. My beta (i.e. my brother) skipped over all the Balian bits. I am so horrible to Balian that sometimes I feel that I should be doing something to make up for all of it... ;) Thanks for reading and reviewing.
I loved the depth of emotion in Sibylla's dying scene, it bought tears to my eyes, and poor Barisian!
Spot-on with …omer's "Ends justify the means" attitude
and I am very amused by Jack and Barbossa and Faramir and Aragorn's reactions to them XD Just too funny!
Author's Response: Hmm, Balian in New Zealand...GLOMP. Yes, poor little boy, and poor solo dad Balian. Just as well he's not going to France ;) He'll need some help to raise his kid. Aragorn and Faramir are still wondering about what Jack and Barbossa are. They won't figure it out anytime soon :P Thanks for reviewing!
Author's Response: It's my life's goal to make people laugh (and think). Thanks for the review.
keep up the great work
Author's Response: It's probably not just you who likes the long chapters, but they take ages to type up, that's all. I'm glad you like Jack and Aragorn interacting together. They're such opposites. Thanks for the review.
great chapter and love the description of aragorn, you captured him well. i'm guessing legolas just arrived in the fountain. keep up the good work x
Author's Response: Hector's still struggling with modern terminology. He'll get the hang of it sometime in the near future. Legolas' boat just landed on the White Tree, so Faramir is in shock. Thanks for the review.
Thanks for the review. I'm very big on the LOL factor. *grins*.
Author's Response: I can definitely see the logic in that XD And when has Legolas' plans not worked to some extent? And I would never kill any of my favourite characters :P I just like to torment them, that's all. Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: Yep, Legolas is now very good at handling pistols. Glad you could see Eomer's reaction to our Captain Jack. I was hoping people would feel how Eomer was feeling when he saw this pirate. Thanks for the review.
Who wouldn't want more of our kickass elf? Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the review.
LOL, Legolas, Tortuga, lil Willie...there is gonna be TROUBLE!
And come on Balian, be the knight in shining armour again!
Author's Response: I wasn't sure if I got Elrohir right since I haven't really made up my mind about the twins yet. However, if you thought it was all right then I must have done something correctly ;) You are the elf fanatic after all. And when is there ever not trouble? *grins*
also jack in rivendell very cool, i feel for the elves and i'm glad we got to meet elrohir. the twins are always good to put in.
thanks for writing and keep up the good work
Legolas is certainly feeling sorry for himself ;) Tortuga is definitely not his type of haunt. I'm not very good with the twins, so they'll probably stay as cameos for the time being unless I get some divine inspiration from the Valar. Thanks for the review.
And LOL for Balian! Hilarious!
Author's Response: Thanks *hug* This 'trouble' actually takes a while to resolve. Not really what I planned, but it's how the characters wanted it. Thanks for the review. Balian probably doesn't find his situation that amusing, but us girls do ;)
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you're liking it. I've definitely got more coming.
They are definitely not very good at staying on land. Somehow, Balian always finds some valid excuse to go sailing :D Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: Thank you very much *hugs* Glad you liked it. Imad's a funny guy, but he's awfully smart. A bit more than Balian anyway, especially when it concerns politics.
Author's Response: Thanks! *hug* I like strange humour, but you know that. Happy Lunar New Year!
