I suppose they'd have a heart attack if I told them I'm writing fanfic in English these days. *g*

experience like you, Alpha, but with English: two English teachers told me I should try to get a job where I wouldn't need foreign languages as they judged me too little giftd in languages.

My father was a maths teacher, too, which wasn't always easy for me, *g* - my classmates considered it as uncool in a major way to be daugther of a maths teacher. And I made a similar

Wow- Naledi- you were Maths!! I am an English teacher and so agree. I am so careful - don't always get it right but try to make sure every interaction is positive.

I was a maths teacher too! A really soul-destroying job sometimes, because many children arrived at school already afraid of the subject.

It is sad how a bad teacher can make a child's time at school a misery. When I was teaching I was very conscious that even the most casual, throwaway comment could wound.

I still remember my maths teacher. Pasty faced and smelled of onions. I was traumatised, especially when he told my parents the only thing I was good at was sports.

Most of my teachers were lovely - there were just a couple that were not nice.

I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now.

LOve the ending and I'm so glad Lindir has a pal now - where's the otter though?? I'm worried Elrohir might have shot another one!! Soall has ended well and we can look forward to some crazy research - as wlays, I do so enjoy your bonkers crackfic.

Author's Response: Yes, where is the otter? Maybe it went off to live with Erestor permanently - it does seem to prefer him. Thank you so much for commenting and I am glad you enjoyed my bonkers fic lol Hugs Fin x

Oh goodness- this is all a bit grim and horrible- but it is skipped over so much by Tolkien and worth exploring a bit. Poor lindir.



Author's Response: It is grim but you are right, Tolkien did skip over the actual event so I was the one to explore further and reveal the gory detail - I feel like a Sun reporter now lololololol Thank you for your comment, hugs Fin x

Elrohir turned back to his embroidery, two dogs dressed as elves and playing cards. He shook his head as if disappointed with Gandalf's behaviour.

 

Oh - I am stil llaughing at that! Amongst all th seriousness and action of the last few chapters, you just drop this in!!



Author's Response: you know me - I cannot keep the laughs away for long lol Thank you for your lovely comments - I am so pleased you are enjoying the story :) Hugs Fin x

Another hilarious bit

Arwen trilled with laughter. "Such an imagination. I wonder where he gets it from." I hate her. I really really hate her, and I hope something really horrible happens to her, like she has to marry a greasy, malodorous human with long stringy hair, bad teeth and honking breath.

 

But the second part of this is really sad and I don't like Elrond's children for their nastiness at all.


 



Author's Response: Elrond's children are like particularly nasty pantomime villains. They have a reason for their awfulness but it's not much of one considering that they are adults. Thank you for your lovely comment :) Hugs Fin x

Oh WHERE has this been hiding!!!!! I have so needed more of your writing- missing my Jeli as I do.

 

Thsi made me laugh out loud so my husband wondered what on earth I was giggling at!

 

Elrohir used to have a pet stag beetle called Rumbletybum, and he used to say things like, 'Who is a pretty boy?' to it. The beetle never answered, so Elrohir used to do a silly voice making out to answer for it.

 

I love that erestor is so knowing and clever in this- and one step ahead of the little smart alec!



Author's Response: I am so pleased you found this story and enjoyed it so much :) The story has sat around half posted for a while and then I thought I would post the rest. Then you saw it - thank you for your lovely comments! Hugs Fin x
