Oh, come now, Ignoble, you know very well that the idea arose from a wisecrack I made during IM. You were the one who said, "We really ought to do this!" I give you a lot of the credit -- the songs really made it 'pop'.
Author's Response: This was a lot of fun to write. Your sense of humor is second to none and I laugh every time I read this. I hope we can collaborate again soon.
Oh this is wonderful! Gentlemen you are geniuses of the first order.
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Wombat. Randy is a genius, and my muse for all things LOTR humor related. When he proposed the idea for this it was too good to pass up. This was a fun collaboration and I'm glad to know you enjoyed it.
I once went to see a performance of "My fair Lady" because my best friend was in the orchestra... and I thought the play was funny back then. But this is beyond hilarious! I laughed so loud that my mom came to see what was wrong with me... (I also tried to sing the songs, that may have had something to do with it xD)
So much awesomeness!
Author's Response: I'm glad you got a laugh out of this. It was fun to write, though getting some of those songs to fit the meter was quite a challenge. My Fair Lady was always a favorite of mine so it was a treat when Randy (Thranduil) offered to write the story. Thanks so much for your review.
