Nocturne by Camilla Sandman Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 4]
Summary: “Ever do we love in the dark, in the night. Will it forever be so, ere the end of our days?” There is no easy path for the love between a Dwarf and an Elf, and especially not for Legolas and Gimli…

Wow. Just wow. The poem is amazing and give the little boy a hug for me please!

This reminds me of when I lost my great-aunt to cancer...I wasn't alive then, but my mom was always so sad about it because she'd really loved her. Cancer is an aweful disease. Hopefully one day there will be a cure.

I love it. Gimli is such an amazing character and not many people write stories about him. *bows deeply* I thank you. :)

Author's Response: Thank you Melda. I love getting reviews on stories I have written some time ago- it means they are still living- you know what i mean? It is actually a bit of a cheat - spoliers for Sons of Thunder where Gimli has a really important part. But I have something quielty gestating for Gimli - he is, as you say, a very overlooked character.

Family Games by December Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 1]
Summary: Trials, surprises and more than a little temptation await the twenty-year-old Faramir as he embarks on his first military assignment, namely to assume command over the Ithilien Rangers. Was it merely an old man's eccentricity that led the Steward to suddenly assign his youngest this venerable position, especially in a time when a strange new beast is rumoured to roam the woods?

I read the whole story! How sad..It's amazing though, you put so much feeling into what you write that it's flawless! I can't believe that no one has every reviewed this before me, though it is an honor unto me to have been the first!
Love and peanutbutter,
Melda

Author's Response: Thank you, dear! Well, it's actually been reviewed quite generously over at Faramirfiction.com where I'd initially posted it, so I don't feel unloved about this story :) I really can't predict which story will receive reviews at which site, though there must be some kind of logic to it...

I read this all and it was really great and so funny! Sue-bashing is hilarious and so fun to write..I speak from experience. My story 'You've got fanmail' is all about escaping and fighting the Sues and Stues!

Although, there have been a few palatable Sues that weren't so bad, but it's the really, really bad ones to watch out for! Right?

Author's Response: I think I've actually read part of your story. I'll have to go back and check that out soon. :) And you're right, some Mary Sues in healthy amounts are alright. But there are the ones that are just...extra special. Thanks for reading!

Awww. I love Maglor. SO very sad, but I liked it a lot. Good job! You're a poet, but you should definitly know it!

Author's Response: Thanks! I've always wondered what happened to Maglor. He isn't mentioned at all in The Lord of the Rings, and you'd think he'd at least be mentioned if he was in Rivendell or at the Council of Elrond. Who knows...

Title: Chapter 1: The Pages Unwritten Reviewer: Melda Signed
I like how you seem to be seeing the Lord of the Rings from a different view. It is..refreshing, to say the least. It's a bit strange, but everyone has their own thoughts and tastes and you've started to write something that shows quite a bit of promise. Keep it up. :)

Author's Response: Yes, it is a bit strange isn't it? I actually got the idea from two things. My own (sort of) empathy for the orcs and from part of a letter written by Tolkien about the orcs. He said in that letter that the orcs were not past redemption, and that since evil (i.e. Sauron) couldn't make life orcs were a part of Eru, a part of His whole creation. That they were used as tools, controlled by Sauron by their own fear. Of course, I will explain more in further chapters. Thank you for the review!

Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back Reviewer: Melda Signed
Yay! Things are getting happy again. Hmmm, I may not be the best at predicting things but I'm sensing a future pairing of Glorfindel/Erestor/Elrond. Don't tell me if I'm right. I wanna read it for myself! Great chapter by the way. And I do have a suggestion for the title of this chapter. How about 2 steps forward, 1 step back? The 'two steps forward' would refer to Glorfindel and Elrond furthering their relationship, and the 'one step back' would refer to Erestor falling back into the clutches of the Elven sickness. Tell me if you like it. :) And, also, I'm always happy to review!

Author's Response: I am really glad you liked it as it was my first attempt of writing romance and I was afraid it would come out awkward. The title is really fitting and I like it a lot, it perfectly captures the feeling I wanted to get with this 'prologue', therefore you'll find it already implemented ;-) ... thanks once again!
