I liked the teasing dream sequence. For a moment I thought she gave in too quickly. Glad she's letting him sweat it out a little longer but that they can still admit their love for each other.
Author's Response: yes, Carleena loves him. He's the love of his life. The question is can she put aside her prejudice and accept him again. There will be more teasing dream scenes soon :)
OB seems to have matured a bit. Glad to see he's taking things nice and slow. It makes for a better reunion. It almost seems like he had grown more than her. Can't wait to see what happens when she moves to N.Y. with him. Like the idea of Angela trying to stir up trouble again. It will test Carleena and OB's relationship to the max. Never mess with a hormonal pregnant woman, I don't care who you are. You won't win. Also, I'd like to know more about Carleena's childhood, why she is like she is. Just a thought. Good Chpt. Keep it up.
Author's Response: Carleena's childhood would definitely be touched in the next chapter when she finally opens up to Evan. There will be a reasonable explanation on why she is guarded with men. Thanks for the idea!
Yes, it was very satisfying and my name was spelled right, haha. Now it makes sense why she flew off the handles and disappeared after catching OB and Angela together. The ghosts from her past have finally caught up to her and she needed to deal with them. Loved the Chpt.
Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. It sucks to be sick. Hope you get better soon so you can continue with your story.
This is definitely the best chapter by far. I loved how Carleena came around and realized what she has been missing is right in front of her. The play was a good dose of reality. But my favorite part was the way he proposed to her, the ring on the ice cream. Nice touch. I couldn't help but remember the night my husband proposed to me. Those are memories no one forgets. Well done.
Author's Response: thank you so much. I had hope the proposal scene sound believable since i myself have never been proposed to lol. The play is actually something i had experienced before. I had watched a play before that was really like my life and it prompted me into action. I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. I will write better!
Cute chapter. So the words out. I sense a controversy on the way. It's such a happy time in their lives but I just know their world is about to come crashing down. Their so happy and in love... and the baby. I almost can't look. I'll have to read the next chapter with my hand over my face, peeking through my fingers. I already feel the tension. I eagerly await the continuation.
Author's Response: The next few chapters will see the return of her parents in the picture. I wanted to tie that loose end and make her come full circle. Don't worry, a lot of excitement and thrilling things will take place lol
First of all, let me say I appreciate the fact that you didn't have Carleena win the Oscar. It makes the story so much more realistic. It's not a perfect world and I don't particularly like reading about one. So I'm reading along and feeling good and then... BOOM!!! I really didn't see it coming. I was busy thinking about her parents and the awards show. I'm on the edge of my seat and waiting anxiously. Excellent chapter. Great cliff hanger.
Author's Response: I felt it wasn't right for her to win. It was her first movie and i thought Liv and Orlando should be honoured since they have been in the business for a while now. I'm glad i'm making you wait on the edge of your seat. Stay tuned. All will be revealed!
Wow. That was a quick update. The suspense is killing me. It hurts to see Orlando so close to death. And now the baby may be at risk. Carleena is all stressed out. Well, at least Angela is dead. What comes around goes around. I eagerly await your update.
Author's Response: i was itching to finish the story! the climax had been in my head since earlier this week lol. next one will hopefully be later today
Oh, you had me going there. I thought for sure his spirit was visiting her one last time. I thought he was gone for sure. You had my heart pumping. Darn those doctors. It would have been awful for their son to grow up without his father. Hmmm... sounds familiar. (inside joke) Max is such a cute name, too. Can't wait to see how it ends.
Author's Response: I had a hard time writing this part. TO die or not to die, that is the question lol. It would have been satisfying on a literary stand point but i couldn't disappoint Orlando's fans. Plus i have not the heart to kill him. Thank you for following the story up till almost the end.
Hi there. Didn't want to let this slip by me without reviewing. Nice to see you back on the update list again. I love your dialog between characters. Arwen's innocence is very becoming of her. And Legolas, well what can I say. He is very sweet as he ponders his feelings, comparing them to the stars. I'm very curious about your oc's too, Herendil and Oloriel. I bet he needed some extra attention with that sponge bath *wink*. Nicely done. Looking forward to more. Welcome back.
Author's Response: Hey :) Yes, it has been the longest time since I have updated - have been really busy, let me tell you. I'm glad that you are still liking this, especially as I have spent so long away from it. I'm also glad you like the character's conversations - trying to imagine what they actually would say to each other can be slightly challenging at times. Yes, Oloriel and Herendil have been asking me for some more attention too, and I think I might just have to give it - I love them too much to deny them for too long!
I for one am surprised there are not more reviews for this story. It is beautifully written, very professionally done. Stories like yours are the reason I decided to try writing my own. You have a great talent and I am glad you are sharing it. I've added it to my favorites. I love the story line and look forward to seeing the relationship between these two grow and mature together. The dialog is wonderful. The friendships are entertaining. Your descriptive writing makes me feel as if I were right there with them. I get such emotions from reading it. Keep writing this and I promise to keep reviewing. Please update soon.
Author's Response: You said that stories like mine kept you writing, well reviews like YOURS keep ME going :) Thankyou for your support, I'm sure you understand the pleasure that a review can give an author. I try my best with my stories, hoping that they don't turn cliched or dull. I'm currently halfway through the next chapter, so perhaps another update at the end of the week...LC
You have made me fall in love with Legolas all over again. You've also given a new craving for protein. This chapter was well worth the wait. Very sexy to think of Legolas flirting in this way. I love the way you write. More, more, more!!
Author's Response: Thankyou for your review! It automatically brightens my day (or night, in this case). I had hoped that others would find the dinner scene enjoyable, as it was fun to write. Your enthusiasm spurs me on - perhaps I might update more frequently from now onwards! It's always good to know that your work is appreciated! xoxo LC
O... M... G... That was hot. I think I'm liking the story behind Oloriel and Herendil even better than Arwen and Legolas. If that's what you write for your second characters, I can't wait to see what's in store for the main ones. That was the most arousing sponge bath scene I've ever read. I bow down to you. Best chapter so far. More... and soon.
Author's Response: As always, I'm glad that you liked it. I wrote it last night (or then again, technically it was this morning) when I hadn't even planned to write anything at all. Had to do a bit of a spell check when I awoke this morning, but the story itself did not change :) Herendil and Oloriel are indeed having an easier run than Alar/Arwen/Legolas. And hot things are ahead, and in store for them, but do not ask me when, how or what exactly because I've only got the barest gist of it. As for updates, maybe this time next week. I've got to finish writing my essay now! LC
You'll get nothing but good things from me. This chapter was full of emotion; anger, despair, friendship and even longing. Beautifully written and I love this last part with Legolas and Arwen running through the trees and settling in by the pond. Innocence can be so romantic.
Author's Response: I'm glad that you like it! Yes, I thought a bit of innocence was necessary, seeing that their relationship is more or less buit on a childhood friendship.
Short and sexy. A good read. I was a little confused when she called him her husband, but I see where you were going with it.
Author's Response: i wanted to run away from the fan fic i had going. I wanted something sexy and has some family feel to it. Hope it wasn't too confusing
I really like this story. You can see how it relates to every father giving away his little girl on her wedding day. Fortunately, most dads get to see her grow in her marriage for years to come, which is why it is so sad that Elrond sailed. Very good.
Author's Response: I wrote this story from a father's point of view. It intrigued me since i have made a decision in life that might deprive my dad of the opportunity to give me away. Yes, it is indeed sad to think Elrond will never know his grandchildren like the other grandfathers get to do. Thank you for your encouraging words!
This is an interesting story. I'm surprised to see you have not been reviewed yet. I will admit, I'm not too up on my First Age Middle Earth history so some of the places are a little confusing, but that's just me. I am anxious to see where this story goes. Am I right to assume that the Nazgul characters are all women? If so, that's a new twist. Good writing and I look forward to following along.
Author's Response: Thanks! Seven of the Nazgul are women in this. I decided to make the Witch-King male because that adds some tension with Khamul, who thinks she should be chief, and is also very annoyed that Sauron put a man in charge. The ninth Nazgul's also a man...I'm not sure why. Maybe it was for contrast between the Witch-King - who's fairly strong-willed - and the ninth Nazgul, who's weak and not all that smart. Thanks again for the review! I hope you enjoy the rest of the story!
First of all, I must apologize for not reviewing this in so long. It's my own fault that I've let your story get away from me. I have just now caught up and I am thoroughly enjoying this. It is like a Middle Earth history lesson along the way. As I said before, I am not up on my first age history so I greatly appreciate your chapter end notes. I think this is the first story I've read that featured the dark characters. As evil as they all are, I'm enjoying their interaction with each other. Khamul is wonderfully malicious and my favorite. Love her 'don't give a crap' attitude. You have managed to show us a side of the story that not many have touched on and I love to see how it all unravels. Great work and I'm looking forward to more, especially now that I'm caught up.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm so glad you're enjoying it!
I am amazed at how much you know about these stories. I like how you even incorporate characters that were only mentioned in passing in the books. Nicely done once again.
Still reading and enjoying your work.
