Just now playing catch up here but anyway, count me in for a donation. I love this archive!

I think it’s important to keep these Tolkien specific archives going, especially with so many dying.

She’s quite willing to keep it hosted on the same server, just the admin/tech work would be done by someone else.

I don’t think we need to worry about the archive going, esteliel just thinks it would be better if someone acted as host/admin who was in the fandom.

Thank you, Spiced!

So I would be ready to contribute as well and really sad to see the archive go :)

I am mostly on AO3 but I like Faerie a lot better than FFnet to be honest, and the best reviews I ever got were on Faerie.

If you do, Ysilme, I will pass you email on to Esteliel :) You would make a great overall host for the archive.

I also might be able to help with the technical site of things. I'll send you a mail, Sîan, for details.

I registered only to leave a review of this story. This is one of the best - if not the best - fanfic I've read. I loved your plot twists, the Glorious Moment of Awesome being the mumak meets Angmar incident. Thank you for several highly enjoyable hours of reading.

Oh how my heart aches for the Rohirrim specifically Eowyn especially what happened prior. I was expecting Theodred to be the one killed and not Eomer. I can usually guess pretty good at what will happen next but NOT with this story so it keeps me on my toes and intrigued. Awesome story!

Name: Alaeryel (Signed) · Date: March 12, 2012 2:52 · For: Besieged
I could not help but laugh when the men failed to nab Eowyn and Eomer fessed up to it--I found it hilarious. I can only guess what will happen next now that Theoden will not ride but will find out soon. I am on my way to the next chapter now. Great Story!!

Name: Alaeryel (Signed) · Date: March 12, 2012 1:39 · For: Besieged
OMG Aiwendiel sooo suddenly unexpected. I thought Denethor would survive this! I was at the edge of my seat this whole chapter!! I also can not believe Amrothos was killed. I know your story is so unique in itself but I couldn't believe it. He and Eomer are my most favorite humans and Haldir my dream elf but I was not expecting any of the Dol Amroth ruling family would have been killed--GREAT JOB with a slam dunk to my imaginings. Absolutely Excellent!!

Author's Response: Hang on to your seat -- more dark alternative character fates will be coming in future chapters. Apologies in advance!

Completely and totally riveting. I loved the conversation and understanding that came to Denethor and Faramir and the conversation between the 3 here in this chapter. My heart cried with the emotion evoked by your writing of this. Beautifully executed Aiwendiel.

I am finally back to reading alittle more and I really enjoyed these last 2 chapters. I really like this Denethor compared to how he was protrayed in the movie--"he" made me ill! I like the softer side you get a bare hint of. I will continue reading now but I am really hoping Mithrandir is ok (I know he will be but what all transpires I will have to wait and see!) I love this version of yours about how it all came about! Thank you for a different perspective on this story.

Aiwendiel--NOOOOO! Excellent chapter but heart wrenching! I cannot believe that Elladan died here. I bawled like a newborn babe not only for Elladan and Halbarad's son but also for what Aragorn felt for himself. Beautifully written but soooo not expected. Keep up the great writing!!

OMG Aiwendiel-I finally quit trying to predict or answer my own question -What Next! This is absolutely wonderful!! Theodred lives, Grima changes toward good--Oh how I can picture these scenes.

Name: Alaeryel (Signed) · Date: March 03, 2012 1:13 · For: The Lords of Gondor
I cannot fathom this side of Denethor! When I read his name all I can picture is the way he was portrayed in the movie! It is kinda nice to see him with a softer side for once. Hope he shows some of that for Faramir too. I loved it!

Author's Response: Ah, well, I despised the movie version of Denethor. One of the things I hated about the movies the most. He bears very little relationship to the original of the books. And my version of Denethor is changed more than any other character, perhaps, by my alternative universe, for the better, I hope to think.

OH My Dear--I am on the edge of my seat. This is such a wonderful story. I am happy to see Pippin finally offered a position with those who would show him friendship and kindness. I just cannot get over the uniqueness of this story. Thank you for such a wonderful interpretation from another viewpoint.

goodness- I have missed lots of updates will try to get  round to reading this weekend. sorry!!!

Oh I really like this story Aiwendiel! Boromir lived and returned and I can hardly wait to learn the fates of the others and how this might end! Great writing and story line!!

Name: Alaeryel (Signed) · Date: February 24, 2012 21:10 · For: The Bridge of the Morgulduin
VERRRRRY GOOOOD! Will be keeping watch for more. I like the uniqueness of this story. I hope that Gandalf survives or comes back but you have it written where I cannot even begin to guess how this will end--I like that!!

I laughed my a__ off at the story telling! It was too good. Thoroughly enjoying another vision of this story. Thank you for such an intriguing insight !

Aiwendiel--PLEASE tell me there is more to this story--maybe a sequel!?! Oh you left me hanging and I would like more,more I say. I loved it one for the fact that it is so different than most stories unique and second I am dyin to know! GREAT JOB!

Name: Alaeryel (Signed) · Date: February 24, 2012 0:29 · For: Galadriel's Mirror
OOOHHH I am liking this alternate scenerio. It just shows the great minds that can switch things around and make another kind of story out of another!

Name: Alaeryel (Signed) · Date: February 23, 2012 23:22 · For: Beneath The Trees
Ok you threw me off with Haldir and Gimli being nice to the other! I was not expecting that and Pippin sounding so serious compared to how he is usually portrayed--very well done.

Name: Alaeryel (Signed) · Date: February 23, 2012 22:47 · For: Night in Lothlorien
This is so different from the Movie Verse and it has me so anxious to see how this whole thing plays out. Excellent writing my friend!

Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: August 29, 2011 23:23 · For: Night in Lothlorien

Another great chapter, full of suspense and atmosphere. I think the way you have written it creates incredible tension - I was trying to analyse exactly waht you had done- but I htink it is the play of different perspectives ; the waiting fellowship interupted by Legola sbursting onto the scene, his urgency and then the pushing a dnpulling of Boromir and Gandalf onto the flet. And the n Frodo's pov as the Galadhrim pursue the orcs and then, almost as an aside, Gollum is killed. (Poor Smeagol. Of all, he is most the victim). Then it flicks from Bormoir to Gandalf and it feels cinematic. And the release for Boromir is terrific- with his vision of Aragorn and recognistion of his features as those of the Sea-Kings ( I do like that idea!)

Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: August 29, 2011 23:10 · For: The Warrior and the Wizard

Yes- this tender exchange between Boromir and Gandalf is absolutely right. You give this backstory to prepare for the later events too and give Denethor some depth too. I love that Boromir thinks that anyone who has seen Legolas would not think Elves graceful! But it is Gandalf who steals this part of the story (an later too of course). And because you are writing AU, the sense of danger is very real and present and the orcs do not seem far behind at all.

Name: ziggy (Signed) · Date: August 29, 2011 23:01 · For: East of the Mountains

Reading this again gives me a chance ot see how well you have plotted everything - right down to Aragorn's promsie to wait even at the Black Gate if need be! Wonderful. And the sense that all is not well, not well at all.
