I'm thirding the *hugs*. If this happened to you, I wish you well on your journey to get through this moment. I do appreciate how you describe the feelings, particularly in the 1st and 3rd paragraph.

~Take care~

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. It's easier to write about something like this when you're actually going through it...and this experience will be good to look back on for future writing reference.  Thanks for the hugs and reassurance.

'Legolas was sitting at the kitchen table with a very confused look while he thought, ‘How did we get here…I want to go back…but yet I don’t…I want to learn more about here…and more about Suki…I don’t know why but I feel a strange connection to her…I wonder how she feels about me…I mean us…yeah us.’ '

hahahahahha! wow, this makes me want to reread the books and rewatch the movies afterward... Its been a while since I've read the books and I never made the connection about Elrond being girly hahaha! I think I was too focused on other pretty things ;)

Author's Response: I haven't read the books in a while but surprisingly I remembered as much as I did. Heh. My sister and I always make fun of Elrond. Now you'll never be able to look at him the same way ever again! ;P

True, very true. You can't argue with that logic.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Luna Signed

I've been a member on this site for a year now and been reading fanfic on and off before that. But there are a couple concepts whose popularity I do not understand.

1. It seems that slash is an extremely popular concept. Now I'm a proud gay rights supporter so it isn't the slash that baffles me but the fact that it seems all the slash fic I see is written by women and I guess it would make more sense in my mind for gay men to write it... I'm not sure but where does the appeal come from?

2. On the topic of incest, those are stories I certainly don't get... Not only is it amoral but from a canon perspective I definitely don't see the elves getting down and dirty like that. Is it just the excitement of the taboo that makes people write incest stories?

Although I admit I haven't even purposely read many incest fics. Recently I've become a big fan of Olorime and her story Broken. When she posted the chapters of her latest fic that is an incest fic between Arwen/Elladan/Elrohir I did start reading it and thus far like it because I love her writing style. As for the central theme of the story I guess I'm just not thinking about it morally at the moment and going wherever the story leads

Anyways, my comments are not meant to offend. I really have just been curious as to why those themes are as popular as they are. I would appreciate any light that could be shed on it. Thanks ;)

Author's Response: Hi Luna, 1)This site is actually one of the better places to read and write het. Many sites concentrate just on slash. Earlier many sites were concentrating just on genfic and het. The trends change. Writing is about imagination, isn't it? If a 16 year old girl can imagine a sex scene without experiencing anything then women can write slash. Nobody has seen dwarves or hobbits. But we write and read them all the same! It's the same about slash. Just my opinion. Appeal: Just normal slash where men have sex and make women suffer doesn't have takers. It's about the plot. The current trend is that the plots containing slash are very good for the most part. Most of the stories I recommended are 'classics'. Tyellas's stories started the flood of slash stories. She has some pretty good het too. Ford of Bruinen writes very nicely. Dawn Felagund was every Silmarillion writer's inspiration around a few years ago. Erfan Starled knows to plot a character. Jdav is a poet with words. Her Sunset saga gives equal weightage to slash and het. There are some femslash pieces also. Pandemonium, JaelBeruthiel and Pink Siamese - if you like reading OFCs, they have some very nice stories. I also recommend Jdav's Akin to Love (Nerdanel and Eonwe), While We Live (Tar-Miriel and Ar-Pharazon) and many of the het interludes in The Song of Sunset, latest being 'In the Age of Gold'. Tyellas's het stories are good too. But they are explicit in nature. 2)Incest - Explicit incest comes in Spiced Wine's saga. Tyellas writes that too (she started it, I think). The concept doesn't go down well with everyone. I don't know why writers write that. But it is something I have no problems with as long as they have a plot! Both Spiced Wine and Tyellas have good plots. The Journal of Maglor by Jdav is one of the best takes on incest I have read. It doesn't say that the relationship is right. They know it is wrong, they fear what's gonna happen. It's a very sad, moving, poetic story. Incest isn't justified. If you like reading mythological stories the story is something that appeals to you. I have read a Galadriel/Celebrian story on some archive. That was the height of canon killing! It won't feature anywhere on my recommendation lists. As you said you are reading an incest fic because the style is something you liked, ditto for the others too. The Journal of Maglor is one of the best treatments on the subject because of the flawless style it has till the end. Subtlety is the story's hallmark. Something very beautiful to read. Tyellas's Ansereg too is very good but explicit. Thank you!

Aw :(

Author's Response: Luna, thanks for reading and commenting! I'm glad you didn't turn back after the initial shock of what happens in chapter 1, and stayed on to see the matter clarified (if we can use that word here). I love Eowyn too, and I assure you, making her (or anyone else) suffer has never been this story's purpose. Although, admittedly, so far suffering in one form or another is indeed what she's most busy with. But we'll see how things develop...
