A delicious lime and background all in one - thanks for that!
Looking forward to your next installment. :)
Author's Response: I try... XD But thanks for the review
Ooooh please, please, PLEASE make it a love story between Glorfindel and Raleigh? There are so few good HET/love stories for Glorfindel. Plus, you need not worry about the mortal/immortal thing. If it's meant to be, I'm certain the Valar will oblige Glorfindel and give Raleigh some Limpe, which *will* grant her immortality and a chance to sail west with the golden elf-lord.
*If you want to know more about Limpe, check out the "Unfinnished Tales" - the chapter of "The chaining of Melkor".
Author's Response: I agree wholeheartedly with the whole Glorfindel thing. It would be a waste of a good elf. ;) Thank you for reviewing my stories. It's much appreciated. I'll be sure to check Limpe out thank you.
May I proposes a few corrections? And please don't take it but with my kind intention and desire for this stroy to be as awesome and flawless readability wise that it can be:
"You've had a trivial day. I am aware of your flustered state of mind. With my permission, I ask you to stay."
I would paraphrase to "You've had a trying day. I am aware of your flustered state of mind. You have my permission to stay, if you wish."
Also, it should read "with all due respect". :)
Again, I mean no offense, it's just the editor in me.
Other than that, it's lovely, and thanks for posting. I'm looking forward to your next installment.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I welcome any help I can get. Just went back to fix it. Your kindness is welcome any time. Sometimes I get side-tracked and all that when I'm writing and forget to proof read, so again, thank you.
~taps on Tori's shoulder~
ahem, it's been ages in fangirl's standards anyway since you last updated. Let up on Prof. Bormoir and whatever lucky guy you have there and get busy, missy! :P
Serioudly though, come on, start getting those chapter flowing again. The suspense is killing me! And this also means I want updates for DTRA and The OUUME or however you spell that story. :))
Author's Response: Sorry EnchantessM. I'm trying my very best to get some updates rolling again. And I'll get DTRA and TOUFA updated ASAP. ;)
Um Tory? Will you get your behind out of bed already? And tell Prof. Boromir no more shagging until the dance? Sheesh you two are at it like rabbits, and you're neglecting your readers! :P
When's your next installment, liri-maer? And while we're on the topic of a next installment, when's the next installment for TTW? Just as it's about to get good with Glorfindel, you're leaving us elf-lovers hanging? Wicked, wicked woman!
Author's Response: I AM SO SORRY! I'm trying my hardest to type my updates. I promise I'll get it out as soon as I can. Rabbits? Oh baby ;)
Good grief, you need to put a warning note before your epilogue. I literally spew out my green earl grey due to that! Good thing I was using my desktop this time. lol
Ack, oh well, my keybored did need some clean up, I suppose. :p
Ai, Morgoth balls, of course, I meant to type "prologue". grrrr...
hmmmm, an explosion eh?
Let me guess, Mithrandir wanted to crash the party? :P
I'm looking forward to your next installment. Please do not take your time.
Aww Tori, you poor dear! If I could be closer I'd make you my amazing chicken soup to make you right as rain in no time. Since I'm not, can you give someone a honey-do list of things to buy to help you get better REAL SOON:
1- Tea, tea and more tea: Traditional Medicinals Cold Care PM before nap and night time, Gypsy Cold Care and Triple Echinacea tea during day time (not together of course). I recommend sweetening the tea with locally harvested raw honey. Raw honey is known to have antibiotic properties.
2- Get nice and snug with a humidifier on in the room, and put some Eucalyptus and lavender essential oil there (8 of the first, 4 of the latter. YMMV).
3- Apply to your chest close to the throat MammaMichal's Hot Lava Muscle Rub to help with your congestion so that you can breath better. It's all natural with lots of menthol crystals and includes Eucalyptus essential oils along with other warming essential oils in its proprietary combination. I assure you the rub doesn't stink (unlike many others in the market. In fact it smells almost good enough to eat - BUT DON'T! J)
4- Black Elderberry Syrup. YMMV - follow the Manufacturer's directions per the dosage.
Get well soon, hun! We don't Professor Boromir to start feeling lonely, 'cause his favorite author is on the invalid side! :P
Author's Response: Oh my goodness I feel so loved right now. Well, I first thought it was a cold, but now it's full out flu. It doesn't mean I won't sit here to update, what the hell else am I gonna do while I'm sick? XD I've definitely stocked up on tea and honey, it seems to be the only medicine that ACTUALLY works for me lol. Your Boromir comment made me laugh, oh what shall he do without me? Thank you for your medicinal advice, it's much needed.
On all stories???
You're killing me here!
Author's Response: I'm sorry! But it's only for Thicker Than Water thank Eru! The last thing I need is to explain to the cops about a dead beta-reader! Well, there was the other time but...we won't go there. XD
Well, Aragorn should thank his lucky stars he did not stumble into a pillow fight. :P
Anyway, prrrrrrecious, when will you update "Thicker Than Water"? :)
Author's Response: It'll kill you to hear this. But I've caught that disease that affects the brain. Writers block.
A good start. I dig the sense of humor and see how things progress. :)
A little correction though - I think you meant to write weift punishment will be dealt, not "shift" - per harasing the staff on the Monday schedule.
As a side note, I hope you'll update "Down the river Anudin" soon. ;)
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'll be sure to fix that. And as for Down The River Anduin, I've got tons of ideas in store so don't you worry. :-)
Ack, apologies, that's what I get for multi-tasking - I meant to type "I look forward to seeing how things progress". As for the correction "swift" NOT "weift", Eru have mercy on my fae, for my mind seems to be wondering again... ~sigh~
Author's Response: No apologies needed. I'm just glad for the review
UGH, how I loathe cliffhangers!
Please update soon! :)
Hmmph, Legolas and Haldir playing along, really? After Rory saved them from the lusters they'll go ahead and toy with her feelings? So un-eldar like. I hope there's going to be some real love blooming to make up for that. :)
I'm looking forward to your next installment!
Author's Response: Well I didn't wanna leave them out of anything. It was unjust XD I promise upfront they won't be bad. But thank you.
In so many ways, this also describes the relationship of my dad and I. :(
Author's Response: I think it definitely embodies the relationship between a daughter and father. Growing up is hard, and sometimes, dad's can't take it. Thanks for the review.
May I offer a couple of corrections?
As you can imagine, the elves have different gender names than humans.
Female elf: elleth
Males elf: ellon.
It just throws me off whenever you refer to the ellons and elleths as men and women. I don't know, maybe it's just me. :)
Other than that, they story is quite good, and I'm curious to read where you'll take us.
Author's Response: Oh shoot, how could I forget that .. I know that they have different gender names, but as I was writing I totally forgot .. I'll fix it and from now on I'll use the correct term ;) Thanks for pointing it out
It's lovely, but may I propose one correction?
Saying "children" just seems wrong to me (that's what members of the race of men have), perhaps you can consider "elflings"? :)
Author's Response: That's a very valid point- thanks! I shall edit now. :)
