... and then a cliffhanger?! Ulundo! ;-)
nice chapter, though, thank you for that, it really is appreciated. It's sweet to see how Haldir adores her and she's good for him as well, wonder if she ever saw that...
But she definitely needs someone to boost her confidence before she'll be able to adapt to the elven culture and be comfortable in it. Haldir's doing fine so far with that and this talk seems promising in that regard...
Thanks again! I am glad to accompany you on this story as well, you know? Keep it up!
Author's Response: I admit it was a tiny bit evil of me to leave you hanging like that, but I am not going to leave you in suspense for as long this time, I promise! :D
a good question indeed. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with ... anything at this moment ;-) but I'm sure it will work out.
Galadriel the matchmaker ... :D
Author's Response: Yes, she is indeed. And don't worry, the cat fits in with the story.
Short, but nice ;-)
If I didn't know better, I'd say Haldir wanted to give her something that would always occupy her mind and with it, Haldir...
But then he is not the type to be so calculating
Author's Response: Well, you never know with him. Of course, it might have something to do with Galadriel....not going to spoil anything for you, tho. :D
Loved to see the update! Great chapter...so loved Bilbo :) Looking forward to more *hinthint*
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked him. I really had to think about how he would talk, but then I realized 'Hey, he's like you. Just think eccentric, country fellow' you know? And yes, more is coming soon.
Nice chapter. You portrayed Bilbo very well in my opinion as the easy-going, talkative fellow that he is ;-)
Author's Response: Thank you! You don't know how much that means to me, especially since Bilbo is one of my favorite characters. He's dear to me because I see similarities between our ways of thinking. He's a bit eccentric, just like me and, like you said, talkactive as well as easy-going. Me to a 'T'.
Oh damn it, if I am spoiling anything, JUST DELETE MY STUPID COMMENT!!!
Really, so sorry for that.
Author's Response: Oh, that's alright. I liked that you were reading closely enough into the story to formulate what she should do. That means my character was real enough to be believable. I apreciate the fact that you reviewed this. :)
I guessed that her friends and family are what really keep her from choosing immortality and that is why I think it best she spoke to Elrond about it. If she stayed for Edith and Thorontur, it would still mean that she’d outlive them by some centuries, centuries she would spend alone and grieving. And yet we know that the elves still linger in Midlle Earth for some years after Sauron’s defeat. So she could still spend some time with her loved ones and then join the elves…
Author's Response: That's actually what I was considering doing.
She should speak with one of the other peredhil some day, that might really help her, especially as Elrond has knowledge of both choices.
Anyway, loved the chapter. Hope you'll update soon!
Author's Response: Yeah, she's really confused at this point. She's kinda torn between her growing feelings for Haldir and everything that she's ever known. Plus her friends and loved ones.
Awww, I was a little bit confused at the beginning as there was a really large time gap with some events I would have loved to read about, such as the moment Thorontur realised that his protégé was indeed a girl or how it came that both were venturing to the Black Gate.
But it was a well written chapter nonetheless, keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks, I had the part you're talking about written out, but it was somehow deleted from my computer and I had to re-write the entire chapter, but I forgot what I'd written, and I knew it would never be as good as it was the first time, so I had to edit it out.
Very good chaptor, and don't worry, it definitely is not too angsty for my liking ;-)
But seeing her ears must have awoken Haldir's protective streak, one of the things I like most when reading about Haldir ...
off to go and read the rest
Author's Response: Glad you like it so far! And Haldir is definitly protective of her.
Great! I love it when someone makes Haldir survive, although I kind of think it consolatory to know where a fea would go to and that they can be reborn.
I like Nimwen, a strong girl ...
Author's Response: Yep. I like her, too. I think that she's my second favorite OC, my absolute favorite is Marie from my parody 'You've got Fanmail'.
For being new to this elvin romance stuff,you are doing quite well! keep it coming. just cause my elvin mises have left me, doesn't mean I don't love to read it. ~G
P.S. I love Thorontur :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I quite proud of myself. I've managed to arrange this in a way that I'm satisfied with. And, truly, I love him as well. :D <3Love and peanutbutter, Melda
Oh don't stop there!!! Great start and hope an update comes soon. BTW, love Thorontur :)
Author's Response: Oh, thank you *Blushes* Didn't really think that I could do all that well on a fic of this nature. You're a real dear. :) And I love Thorontur myself. He reminds me of an older brother kind of guy or maybe even a dad. He's just so pleasent. His name means 'power of the eagle' And I had a little fun with Nimwen's alias. She's maethorion (which means warrior) son of Laianathorion (which means freedom) I'm glad I did something right with this. :)
