Goodness! This is an unexpected twist. I always imagined Arwen buried under the leaves.
Author's Response: I could ever imagine the Mother of Gondor being laid to rest in an unmarked, commoner's grave
Shortly after the events in Cromwell's Rebellion, Evenstar's health was in decline due to her encounter with the chief villain and the black magic spawned by his partner Linner Wormwood. King Elessar and Celeborn, convinced that Arwen was near death, combined their resources to quickly construct her tomb on the hillside where she and the young Estel had pledged their troth.
I hope you enjoyed the chapter's cliffhanger ending. Thanks again for your continuing support.
So Liv has finally arrived. She will find it hard to leave M-e. Lothlorien must be a sad place now the magic has gone.
Author's Response: Indeed, she will find Caras Galadon being reclaimed by nature. Thanks for your review.
Poor Liv, how scary to be turning into Arwen. As always a most enjoyable chapter.
Author's Response: Liv's journey is nearly over, but there are still a few more interesting occurrences and adventures ahead. Lothl
How strange that Arwen should get Liv's bruises and Liv should want to fight wargs! Another gripping chapter.
Author's Response: Indeed! There is definitely some strange magic going on between Arwen and her counterpart. Will Liv be able to leave Middle Earth before something really dire happens? Thanks for your interest and continuing support, Linda.
Some strange magic is afoot here! however did she bounce!
Author's Response: As far as Movie Verse goes, Elves are quite resilient and flexible. I figured that, if Legolas could dexterously climb and leap from a moving Oliphaunt uninjured, an Elf would bounce if falling on hard ground from a galloping horse. How high she bounced, I'll leave to your imagination. Thanks for reviewing.
It's great to see Aragorn and Arwen. Aragorn must find stainless steel and zips very strange!
Author's Response: Imagine the effect such modern devices might have on a medieval society. Is it any wonder that Zangdan Wolf recommended that Liv's possessions be locked up in the secret archives, only to be accessible to trusted scholars? Look what happened when Morfinn and Celephinn got hold of Liv's strange pendant.
A most enjoyable chapter. It seems some powerful magic is at work. A pity Liv woke too soon.
Author's Response: But it was a good dream, and at least Liv got a chance to apprise the Queen first-hand of some of the latest events that had taken place at Edoras. She and Arwen will communicate this way again soon.
I much enjoyed the feast which felt very realistic.
Author's Response: Thank you, Linda. I tried my best to convey the festive atmosphere at Meduseld during Liv's visit. She will soon leave Edoras with pleasant memories of her brief stay there.
Fascinating to see Rohan so many years after LOTR and Eomer so old.
Whatever is happening to Liv?
What a ferocious battle! Scary to be in thick of it.
Author's Response: Sorry that I posted this chapter out of sequence. Thanks for going back and reading it.
Liv adapts amazingly well to M-e. I wonder what the King and Queen will make of the latest events?
Author's Response: My goodness! You've certainly caught up on your reading today. Thanks again for your enthusiastic interest and continuing support.
I'm glad Liv is safe but the mystery thickens!
Author's Response: Indeed! And as Captain Orgrip remarked, Lady Livtyler can be a lot of trouble. I'm sure his report to his grandfather was most interesting.
What an exciting chapter. A storm is blowing here while I'm reading to add to the atmosphere!
Good to see Aragorn and Arwen.
I'm worried now about Liv.
Author's Response: What better addition to the gathering tension of the plot than the approach of a severe storm? Of course, Liv and Arwen are magically and psychically linked. The Royal Couple must be visited from time to time to assess the effects of this link. Your worries about Liv are justified.
How complicated travelling was in olden days. You made me feel as if I were there.
Author's Response: Liv is traveling like royalty with many of the comforts of home, including a military escort and many support personnel. I drew on some of my army experiences to create the camp scenes. Liv's travel diary fills in some of the gaps. Thank you for your review and continuing support.
What a scary journey!
I shall miss the royal family.
Author's Response: Don't worry, they shall meet again in a sequel. Black magic and another crossover will be involved.
What a creepy place the Rath dinen is! I'm sorry we won't see more of Liv with the Royal Family.
Author's Response: Don't worry. There will eventually be a sequel.
Poor Liv and poor Arwen.
Author's Response: Stranger happenings are yet in the offing.
That's an unexpected plot twist, the elvish blood !
Author's Response: What could be happening to Liv the longer she remains in Middle Earth?
Thank you so much for your reviews and your support.
Goodness what a lot of scandal in M-e!
Author's Response: Even in Middle Earth there is interesting gossip over the tea table, and there is more to come.
I agree with you about Aragorn's reactions to bodyguards! I had to smile at "Wash up and relax" as in British Englush, "wash up means to clean dishes which is anything but relaxing!
Poor Arwen having these strange dreams.
Author's Response: Unfortunately, I'm not a linguistics expert. I'm afraid you'll have to put up with an occasional "Americanism" as far as certain colloquialisms are concerned.
Liv shares a psychic bond with Arwen as long as she remains in Middle Earth. This will result in some interesting plot twists.
Oh dear, poor Liv, she might be stranded in M-E. I'm glad she got to meet Faramir and Eowyn.
Author's Response: No, she won't be stranded. I'm already working on another sequel. But, for now, her journey into the unknown has yet to begin.
I'm glad Liv has met up with the royal party. I hope she will be able to take her photos back to our world.
Author's Response: Don't forget, she is also keeping a journal too. Her adventures have hardly begun at this point.
How well organised Liv is! I hope she and the handmaids soon meet the welcoming party.Most enjoyable.
Author's Response: I'm glad you're enjoying the story. Ms. Tyler's journey has barely begun.
At one point later on, the tale will briefly cross over into another of my stories. See if you can determine where.
I'm enjoying this very much. I'm glad the handmaids are safe.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I will have Chapter 3 posted shortly.
Thanks for letting me know your new story is published. What an exciting beginning! I eagerly await more.
Author's Response: Thank you, Linda. I'll post the next chapter in a few days.
