Title: Chapter 1: West Wind Reviewer: Narya Signed
I love this story. It's a truly beautiful, sensitive take on the OC -lover-for-Legolas idea. Your use of language is excellent - you've got a real gift for painting pictures with words, and the relationship betwen Ro and Legolas is realistically developed...and so romantic. Plus you write damn good sex ;p

One tiny, slightly negative comment, something I picked up on a few times during the story. I'm not sure how to explain it, so I'll use an example from your first chapter:

Eowyn lifted her head. Her tears already dry.

If someone knows better then please correct me, but I think this should be:

Eowyn lifted her head, her tears already dry.

I'm pretty sure the two phrases should be linked together in one sentence, as the second phrase has no verb.

However, it doesn't particularly detract from the reading; in fact, I was addicted. I read it all in one night, then overslept the next day and missed one of my classes! I'm so glad you gave Legolas and Rowannen their happy ending and can't wait to read more about their life together. Hannon le for a very enjoyable few hours gaping at my computer screen!!

What a beautiful story - I enjoy Aragorn/Legolas slash, and yours is more in keeping with canon than any other I've read. Also, your use of language is gorgeous - so poetic! - and your structure is flawless. I really enjoyed this, so thank you!

Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I'm glad it was able to touch you. It didn't take very long to write...I guess sometimes just picking up the pen is the way to go. A pity the formatting seems to be a bit buggered on this site though...I should go through and clean it up sometime.

Title: Chapter 1: Eggses Reviewer: Narya Signed
Fabulous. Gollum/Smeagol is one of my favourite characters, yet when I try to write him I never seem to do him justice. I love seeing what other authors do with him, though, and I think your portrayal of him in his youth is just right. It's also a great little gap filler; I've wondered before about the "teaching his grandmother to suck eggs" line.

Great work.

Title: Chapter 1: Hope Fades Reviewer: Narya Signed
Hi Melanye...I stumbled across your story whilst nosying in other people's Favourites, and was surprised to see it hadn't got a review yet, so I thought I'd leave you some feedback.

You've set up the action very well - no messing about, straight into the story. Excellent. I also think you did a good job evoking the panic that would have gripped the elves at such a time, and you leave the chapter on a lovely juicy cliffhanger.

Has this story been abandoned? I know a lot of people get irritated with this kind of story - female members of the Fellowship, OC romances with canon characters etc. - but this has the potential to bring something a little different to the table, as long as you're careful not to let Laileth turn into a Mary-Sue. If you have given up on it, it might be worth giving it another shot. AU's can be great fun to read

Happy writing!

Title: Chapter 1: Wounds of Greatness Reviewer: Narya Signed
After reading (actually, I think "devouring" would be nearer the mark) "The Official Fanfiction University of Middle Earth," I thought I'd take a look at your other stories, and was pleasantly surprised to find this. I've always had a soft spot for Gimli, and it made a refreshing change to see a Gimli-Frodo friendship story; in fact, I don't recall ever finding any others. I thought it was a particularly interesting touch that Frodo was glad it wasn't Sam who followed him out of the feast - an unusual choice to make, but the right one, I think. This isn't the kind of conversation Frodo could have had with Sam.

Thank you for this lovely, bittersweet little fic, - you've captured Gimli and Frodo perfectly - and thank you for a very enjoyable few days spent at OFUM. I haven't started with "Urple Depths" as I liked the place where you left the original, and I also noticed that "Urple Depths" wasn't completed; I don't want to get attached to/obsessed with the story in the same way I did with "OFUM" only to be left agonising over how it might have ended. Any chance you might finish it off one day, or have you permanently abandoned it?

Nice, Merry - this fits exactly with how I'd imagine Merry to be feeling at this point. I like that the thoughts aren't quite coherent, and how very hobbit-like to end on a (fairly) positive note.

*Nitpick* - "probally" should be "probably."

Good job, though - keep it up.

Child of Storms by Anwyn Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 27]
Summary: Twenty and five years have passed since the Great Battle on which the fate of Middle Earth teetered in delicate balance. Much of the darkness has now been purged from the lands which grow green and fertile once more.

Far into the rolling lands of the North a child was born into this time of blossoming peace, to grow as homes are once again rebuilt.

This is the first story of my original character, Anwyn which I am putting together piece by piece, Its already finished but now I am bringing it together.

Please note that this story was written cooperatively with xFanarix whose fanfic is also posted on this site.

"one would need to remember that the blind bald pup could grow into a great hunting hound, or the spindle legged foul one day grow into a strong stallion worthy of carrying Kings into battle" - I loved the imagery in that part! Very Rohirric. I really like the character of Brunhild as well, and her name fits right into the Rohirric culture, it sounds just perfect. I wonder if/when Beorn and Brunhild will find out who their new daughter truly is?

Awesome work, Anwyn; *hugs*!!!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am so glad to hear you like the imagery there, You write the Rohirrim incredibly well so it is so flattering to hear :) Well Beorn does know the child is proably the unwanted off spring of some nobilty as I do imagine it was so unheard if a noblewoman found herself not too conviently in a "Family Way" that she would go abroad for a few months until having her child and then coming back and the child would be given to someone though I think since Eomer personally is dealing with this Beorn would have his doubts while Brunhild is just so lovely and maternal that she would not care if the child had simply fallen out of the sky she would be so taken that she would love the baby no matter what...fortunately for that baby ;) Thanks Narya! :D *Hugs*

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3: Coming home Reviewer: Narya Signed
Awww yay, more brother-sister bonding! I like your OFC; even though we haven't seen much of her yet, she comes across as strong and loyal, but not in a super-cool-warrior-maiden-Mary-Sue--ish way. She just seems like a loving and grounded woman with a quiet kind of strength. I can't wait to read more about her.

Author's Response: Wooo, thank you, It is always a major relief to hear when someone likes my OFC becuase I am always so paranoid tof fall under the sue cloud which hangs over all female characters and that is just not right, It can be a real witch hunt sometimes! Do not worry, Anwyn will certainly make herself more vocal in the following chapters I wanted to ease her into the story at first but she will be in it more and more and yes she is quite strong and loyal but also stubborn to a fault, It proably all balances out somewhere ;) No, she is definately NOT warrior at all as from the beginning I refused to fall into that trap and while I imagine her having some knowledge of weapons and such it was more I can envison Rohirrim woman being responsible for helping clean weapons and mend armour and so on, but not use such things themselves. I always felt Eowyn being a Shieldmaiden was only really said in passing sometimes in the book and too many people seemed to take that as ALL Rohirrim women were trained how to use a sword and since she was raised in relatively peaceful times there would have been less and less need for such a thing. Thank you so much for another incredibly kind review, it honestly makes me so happy to know you are enjoying the story.

Title: Chapter 1: Prologue: Grief and Hope Reviewer: Narya Signed
Oh! :-( Poor Eowyn - and poor Eomer, but especially Eowyn, having to give away her child. I loved the way you portrayed the bond between them; as you probably already know, I have a soft spot for those two, and for the Rohirrim in general.

I've been meaning to read this for a while now, and so far I've loved it; on to chapter two!

Author's Response: Hello Narya! Thank you so much for the review! I just only now clued in that there were some new reviews, and that always makes me happy, new reviews :) Yes, I always felt bad about doing that to Eowyn but still while this story is pretty much AU I am still writing in the margins of what could have been but was not spoken of or known and so I had to do it though I respect Eowyn and Eomers characters a great deal I don't think such a thing would have been easy for anyone to do even the very strong. Oh yes, I definately have a soft spot for the Rohirrim, I find their culture so abseloutely fascinating. I am so incredibly pleased to hear you are enjoying it! It took me forever to write and then finish off this story but I enjoyed it a great deal so I am so pleased when I hear someone is enjoying reading it, It is the cherry on top for me :)

Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 12: In the company of the King Reviewer: Narya Signed
Hi, Anwyn - sorry for not reviewing in a while! I have been reading, but I've been extremely busy with university deadlines and consequently have been very lazy about leaving comments *slaps wrists*

Anyway, I'm still really enjoying this, and thought I'd better let you know! I like the tension and awkwardness that now exists between Eadbearn and Anwyn, although I miss the closeness they enjoyed in earlier chapters. Poor girl; I hope they can salvage something out of their relationship, though considering Eadbearn's behaviour I'm not sure how likely that is.

Elfwine seems like a very nice young man indeed, bold and cheeky but also sweet :-) do I detect a hint of romance?

Author's Response: Hello Narya! Oh please do not worry, I always apprechiate reviews but I do understand that you are very busy with your University courses so there is no need to applogize :) I am so incredibly pleased to hear you are still enjoying the story. I think that having tension and ackwardness between siblings as they grow older is a natural thing in some ways as Anwyn is no longer the young girl that only wanted to follow that Eadbearn has always known but has a mind of her own which she wants to follow so it is strange for them both as she no longer 'need's' her older brother as she once did. I don't want to ruin the upcoming chapters so I really cannot say alot more than that XD A hint of flirting certainly ;) Though you will find out in chapters coming up why nothing could really become of it. I always invisioned Elfwine being bold like his Father Eomer, but also sweet like his mother Lothloriel and having the usual cheekiness of being a young man.

He thought they might be called flowers, but he couldn’t be sure.

This line is truly poignant - my personal high point of a very well-written story. Your grip on Gollum/Smeagol's character is excellent and you've clearly thought carefully about the structure of the piece - you haven't wasted a word. I think the way you chose to end it was perfect, too; the last line offers closure for the reader, because we know what comes after, but also a hint of sadness, because we know the agony this incident caused Gollum.

You are absolutely right that Gollum is a difficult character to write about - I've had several goes myself and got nowhere. Nevertheless, he's one of my favourite characters in the book, and I'm always interested to see what other authors make of him. I liked your interpretation very much.

As for your wanting to be an author - I think you've got the talent there. Just keep practising.

Author's Response: le hannon, Narya! All I can really say is thank you. I am so glad you liked the story. I really did give it a lot of thought, even though its just a short piece, and I'm glad to know that you enjoyed it. Thanks for your encouraging words! ~Hennie Elsilim
