1. Chapter 1- Realism by Aralia [Reviews - 6] (527 words)
Obviously I don't know Westron, and I've only managed to find afew words, so imagination is going to be needed here.
I also need a beta, my gramar is terrible.
2. Chapter 2-The Male by Aralia [Reviews - 3] (953 words)
Before You read this chapter please read this, It's been annoying me for years now when I read fandom.
Peregrin Took was a knight of Gondor. So why do young writters constantly turn him into some sort of ridiculously naive child in fanfictions? Most fanfics I read have him as not only whinney and food obsessed, but completely unaware of the birds and the bees.
Now I'm sorry, but at 28 hobbit years he's about 17-19 years of age in human standards.
How many 17 years olds do you know, know nothing about sex? As in medieval times the male life expectancy was about 30, I'd expect that at 17-19 many of them would be fathers. Alright, hobbits live longer but you get my point, surely.
The "boy" is no idiot, he is the Thain's son and has a youthful outlook.
Youthful. Not "child like"
Thank you for reading my rant. I hope nobody's offended.
4. Chapter 4- Facing it by Aralia [Reviews - 2] (655 words)
Please: more reviews. I like to know what I'm doing well and what I'm not. Also, I need to know if its comming out all sue-ish.
Whey. I've edited it all and added spaces. Sorry about the spelling. One baby step at a time.
5. Chapter 5-King and Queen by Aralia [Reviews - 2] (1696 words)
I'm sorry its so short, just ignore it, my computer is having problems so its either post it or lose it.
By the way, like I said in the summery, things are different in this LOTR than in the books.
9. Chapter 9-A different spin on things by Aralia [Reviews - 4] (980 words)
Sorry It's short-I'm still writting it. The computer is on the blink again so it's post every few mins or lose it.
I've edited chapter 8 by the way. So sorry,your going to have to re read it cos it's completely different. And this one.
10. Chapter 10-Explanations all round by Aralia [Reviews - 4] (1924 words)
The last chapter wasn't just Natalie's point of view, because I wanted to make it clear why Aragorn would let her into their "camp"
Or why Pippin did what he did. Don't be fooled, it was not just a stupid prank. He had a good reason which I will delve into in this chapter.
12. Chapter 12-Natalie's new look by Aralia [Reviews - 3] (675 words)
Can I make a point.
I'm very sensitive me, if I get no feedback I assume no one's interested. No One's interested means I won't bother with the story. Just the way I'm made.
13. Chapter 13-Why's and How's by Aralia [Reviews - 2] (788 words)
Its been a while, but I've had exams and a life to put into order.
Note: Just a point here, out of all the girl falls into ME, why is it no one ever falls for a random Gondorian soldier, or one of the hobbits? Why does it always have to be bloody Legolas. Hint pre teens: He would not have been interested in a 15 year old girl/elf with relationship and colour changing eye issues.
