Reviews For Humble Gifts

Love this story- the detail makes it very convincing, from the spider's bite and its effects to the lovely nuances of Ithildim's movements - those are very well done indeed and make me feel as though I am actually stadning right next to him. Gimli is fabulous- perfectly written and Legolas is just wonderfully himself.



Author's Response:

Ziggy, I always look forward to your reviews. I am glad you appreciated the detail and descriptions. I always worry I overdo it! I must admit, I adore my Gimli and could write him and Legolas infinitely! I did scare myself with this story, to be honest, as I am not overly fond of spiders!

Ooh - this is wonderful. I'm so glad you posted it here. Poor Legolas - we do like to put him through agony, don't we? But I like how his suffering brought Gimli and Ithildim to a friendship that would perhaps have taken longer to form in other circumstances.



Author's Response:

When I was a wee fanfition reader I never imagined I would grow up to be "one of those authors" who liked to torture her characters but... Here I am! And we do love it, don't we? And yes, I do think his suffering served a purpose here! One that has a parallel to Enough and solidifies them as very good friends indeed, i think. Thank you so much for your review. Yours are always so insigtful!

Ooh... this was gripping. Your stories are always so emotionally intense! As soon as I get some time, I'm going to have to go start from the beginning and read my way through.

Only thing I was thinking: when the spider was attached to Legolas -very creepy, by the way- and feeding, why do you think Gimli's first reaction wasn't to attack first and ask questions later? I mean, he was obviously terrified by what he was seeing; how could he stand just sitting there for so long?... Unless Legolas' forced calm wore off on him, or confused him maybe?

Anyway, I'm going to have this story on my mind for awhile; I just know it. I liked the whole feeling of the story. Thank you for posting. x)

Author's Response:

I think he was just flabbergasted and confused. I don't know how I would have reacted! But that is a great point and perhaps I should have explored it more in the piece.  SO glad you found it gripping. This was one of my favorite stories to right, by far! I always appreciate your reviews.
