I am in love with LotR! My favorite character is Gimli. Dwarfs are my favorite race in all of Middle-Earth.
Tolkien is amazing!He was awesomesauce on the icecream of the world!

Anywho, I also enjoy Labyrinth. If you don't want to read any Labby fics on and love the movie, there is a site called Underground that is specifically for Labyrinth fanfics. I highly reccomend it as I've been a member for a few months and have read some excellent stories on there.

Other vitims of my fangirly-ness are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,Alice in Wonderland,Harry Potter, and Dr.Dolittle (The original one, not the Eddie Murphy movies).

Hi, Tori. :)Nice story so far. Would you perhaps be interested in doing a a co-author thing with me in the near future? I feel like Marie would be at home in TOUFA. :D After all, I am going to be working on a third YGF project.

Author's Response: Wow! I gotta say I am just so honored that you sent me this. I'm sitting in the hospital right now and when I saw this I just lit up like a Christmas tree XD. I would LOVE to co-author with you. Just shoot me an email.

As Jack Sparrow once said "Immitation is the highest form of flattery, love" This sounds really good, I'm happy to know that I helped along your muse to start this and thanks for giving me credit for it.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I feel like it wouldn't be fair if I didn't credit you, and your stories are AMAZING.


Haldir leads the elves to Helm's Deep, understanding fully that he might not survive the battle. With his last breath he reflects on the mortal he left behind, the sacrifices made and opportunities lost. Movie-verse.

This was really good. The emotional crescendo was very fulfilling and yet it left just enough to the imagination to taunt the reader with a pluck of the heartstrings. :) Love and peanutbutter, ~ Melda

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the sweet review, Melda! It's deeply appreciated.

Summary: I am here to tell you of ancient times, stories only the oldest remember... Many of us left these shores but some of us, bound to the woods, remained... Here, in the golden realm of Lorien, I witness the mortals ascension... conquering the world once belonging to wilderness. Most of my kin is involved in a sort of surveillance and history study of the new world. I am an archivist, writing down every important event. Not many news have come from our people in Valinor... except for some short messages brought here by the sea birds. Soon we will have to leave too. The Valars decided and we must obey. Some mortals dared to close on the Undying Lands and this is not allowed. They belong here, to Middle Earth, for they have chosen the "mortals gift" and there is no turning back. After the fellowship members moved to Valinor, nobody else was given permission to move there if not of elven kin. Valinor will be soon placed under a magical seal, making it invisible, intangible, since gods will decide another fate.
There is no need to tell you that dwarfs moved deeper in the heart of the mountains, hobbits keep a low profile... only humans are in a continuous turmoil. While king Aragorn ruled peace was everywhere, but now not anymore... they do not seem to treasure much the gift of life.
However, I am not going to bother you with these things. Here it is... this scroll... I found it one day in a dusty chest. It is a story nobody ever mention when they spoke of the elf prince that traveled with the fellowship. I sent a message to Valinor to ask lady Galadriel for permission to transcribe it. She replies telling it is up to me; nor does Legolas or Gandalf have anything against it. I am not very convinced this story is relevant but... I am an archivist, and this is pure history. I will put it down so anyone can read it and learn of true devotion and sacrifice. I feel it deserves to be preserved for it has the same value as Nimrodel's story.

One long dream my life has bloomed
No day, no night, no rest,
I will diminish here alone.
Not love, but tears are only left...

This is a very good start and the detail is quite satisfying. However, my advice would be to space out the paragraphs in a format that is much easier on the eyes. Fanfictions are usually written with a single space in between each paragraph. Oh, and are you looking for a beta? There were very few mistakes (mostly shifting verb tenses, but I thought I saw one misspelled word and a comma error), anyway, I could help if you'd like. On the whole, the story is interesting and I'd like to see what happens.

This actually brought tears to my eyes. It was a sweet one-shot. A few comma errors here and there, but beautiful otherwise.
