Ha! In ALL his wonderful fabulous glory!!!
Author's Response: In my imagination he looked pretty good lol Thank you for your comment - I am glad you are enjoying the story :)
It's a pity Legolas isn't there to watch. He'd be so turned on by Erestor the torturer :)
Author's Response: LOL Just about anything that Erestor does turns Legolas on :) Thank you for your comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story xx
Ha! Serves him right for the insults Legolas has been subjected to. I think Erestor should make an exception and actually torture Annare!
Author's Response: I htink you will enjoy the next chapter lol Thank you for your comment - I am so pleased you are enjoying the story xx
Legolas really is a bad kitty, isn't he! I wonder how many kitty suits Erestor has torn off him in their time together? Whoever makes them must be one of the richest elves in middle earth!
Ereolas is being a typical brother - giving away all the things the adults are trying to hide Mel from!
Author's Response: As I wrote the chapter I wondered the same thing lol Ereolas skates a fine line in acceptable information - he quite often goes over lol Thank you for your comment - I am so pleased you are enjoying the story xx
Awww...so lovely to see them all back together. And that means the most important person in the story is back - Legolas!
Author's Response: Mel would disagree on Legolas being the most important lol I am pleased you are enjoying the story - thank you so much for your comment :) xx
Bwahahaha! Erestor took Mel to an interrogation on 'Bring your elfling to work day'?!!!! I was chickling about that all the way through the rest of the chapter!
Author's Response: It is pretty funny that he took Mel on bring your elfling to work day, it made me chuckle when I wrote it - also I giggled that Mel believes that if you do no wrong you needn't ever fear Eresotr because he told him so lol I wonder if he took Ereolas as well. Thank you for your comment - I am so pleased you are still enjoying the story :) *Hugs*
Hahaha! I don't know who to laugh at more - Saruman or Glorfindel. I think probably Glorfindel, because he obviously enjoed being in his girly outfit.
The main thing is they're all safe, and they're going to live in peace for a while longer. Or as much peace as Mel allows them, anyway!
Author's Response: Why not laugh at each of them in turn? It's quite suspicious that Glorfindel didn't take advantage of stops to change, isn't it lololololol Poor Mel - he is stuffing his face with gateaux from the cake trees and has no idea. It's going to be hell when he wakes up :D I am pleased you are enjoying the story and thank you for your comment xx
On a huge black stallion sits one of the most beautiful beings in the whole of Arda and beyond.
So it's just me who thought: 'Yay, Legolas has turned up' then? lol
If this was just a trap for Saruman, I hope Sauron lets the elves go past.
Author's Response: I knew you would think that lol I am pleased you are enjoying the story and thank you for your comment xx
Hehehe! Poor Saruman - I bet when he turned to the dark side, he didn't expect quite so much pink in his life :D
I hope you don't leave me in suspense for too long. I know they must all survive, but I can't remember what happens next and I don't want any of the elves to suffer...
Author's Response: It's good that we can laugh at Saruman getting it so badly wrong, although I expect he would not agree lol Posting soon - I hope none of the elves have come to an unfortunate end in the meantime :0 Thank you for your comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story, Fin xx
Continuing my anti-spam crusade...
As much as I love reading about Elfling Mel, the chapters featuring Legolas are a particular joy. This is one of my favourites because it features Legolas at his naughtiest. How I would love to hack into Silidir's accounts and get details of all the different costumes Legolas has ordered. The numbering system would hardly be a problem as who else would order loads of kitty ears?
Author's Response: Legolas is a very naughty kitty indeed! I bet loads of elves wear kitty ears, just not to breakfast lol I am so pleased you are still enjoying the story, and good luck to your crusade - it brightened my day to find your review was real :) Fin x
It's lovely to read about Elfling Mel - he really is adorable, even if he's not quite as well-behaved as he thinks he is!
Glorfindel said I have to be less naughty as well; however, I think I can safely discount anything he has to say about my behaviour, because as every elf knows, I am extremely well behaved at all times. In fact, my exemplary comportment is the envy of most. Indeed, it's as if I am gifted by the Valar.
Author's Response: Mel really has no idea - or he does and he is a sneaky, lying little s*** lol I am pleased you enjoyed the story, Fin x
Ooh -Naughty Legolas! It's a good job Erestor isn't human, or he'd have a heart attack when he reads that letter!
His comment about sending a messenger to Thranduil made me giggle. I'm trying to imagine Thranduil's face when he gets the message not to open the box because it's full of his son's sex toys - lol!
Author's Response: I know! He is so reserved and shy, and then he is talking about sending his dad a parcel, which is not to be opened because it contains sex toys - sometimes I do not understand him at all! I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin x
Go Legolas! I wish he'd pressed just a bit harder with his sword. How dare anyone speak to him like that? And how awful that he's the subject of such gossip. I think Erestor should have them all tortured when he gets to Imladris.
Author's Response: I was reading it and wondered why I wrote him being so restrained - he isn't normally so when it comes to outright violence. Erestor will have the time of his life avenging Legolas :) I am pleased you are enjoying the story, Fin x
I woke up covered in a blanket, in Ada Legolas’ arms. Ask Erestor, he will tell you that it is the greatest place to wake up.
So true - and also sweet. I think this is my favourite line in the whole story :)
Author's Response: I could think of worse places lol. I am pleased you are enjoying the story :) Fin x
Hurrah for revenge! Go get those murderous traitors, Erestor!
Author's Response: He is like a dog gnashing at the bit lol
*swoons* Legolas is so sexy when he's angry!
I love how Ereolas admires Legolas more after witnessing his act of senseless violence!
Author's Response: It's almost as if Ereolas loves senseless violence himself lol
I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin x
Aww...Legolas can be so innocent sometimes! I wonder why Erestor was so insistent that Weeping Naiad join them. Maybe he thought Legolas needed educating. Lucky Weeping Naiad, though!
Author's Response: Maybe Erestor wanted to broaden Legolas' experiences and mind? Ereolas would give his eye teeth to know about them having sex with a human woman - he would use it whenever Legolas lectured him about beng promiscuous lol I know - I could tell him!!
I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin x
LOL! Legolas is quite right - it would be terrible to miss Mel growing up. But I can still sympathise with Erestor!
That Legolas is one naughty kitty, isn't he? It's so sweet to see how much Erestor adores him. *happy sigh*
Author's Response: I think you will like the coming chapter - it is written by Legolas :)
Legolas is a naughty kitty indeed lol He makes Eresotr very happy!
I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin x
Rereading snippets from your Melpomaen series has been a wonderful way to pass a lazy afternoon. I bet it's no surprise to you that I picked out the chapters with Legolas in :-)
Author's Response: I have been rereading it so I can formulate a plan for ending it and gggling all the way through. I am really pleased you enjoyed it. Really? Legolas? Well I am surprised - not lolol, Fin x
With heavy irony, Manwë asked them if they would like a room.
It's these deft little touches that make this so brilliantly witty, Glorfindel. Fab work.
Author's Response: Thank you :) I am really pleased you enjoyed it. More coming soon. I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin xxx
Right, I am sitting in my bedroom, at the nasty little desk from the school for recalcitrant elflings, that Haldir so kindly supplied for Ereolas and me to write our diaries. I hope the sarcastic tone of my last sentence shines through. I am practising lots, so that I can be a master of sardonic wit. It was Ereolas who suggested that I follow this course, and I think that he is a very clever little brother for thinking of this. He says my future mastery of sarcasm and his mastery of the terrorist principles of forced etiquette, means that we will certainly make a name for ourselves and leave an indelible mark on the future. In addition, he says that any elves will think twice before dealing with us. He says it is not a good idea to be sarcastic to Glorfindel as I could drive him to Valinor if I get really good at it.
That made me laugh. And hismade me gigglingly hysterical!!
“Anyway, Haldir already has a lover, and he adores him very much.”
“I have never seen him.” I wondered who would love horrible Haldir.
“You have seen him, but you did not know he was Haldir’s lover.” Glorfindel laughed, and I excitedly asked who it might be. He said he did not know if he should tell me because I might tell someone else, but I promised that I would not tell at all, and he said it was Lord Celeborn.
Lord Celeborn the doggy impersonator is horrible Haldir’s lover HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Even more HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
ANd the the not waering a loincloth was so funny too that my husband thinks I've gone barking mad!
It was not about me. As everyone knows, I am never naughty. The story did not have the desired effect, and now I am going to moon Glorfindel when he leaves to go back to Imladris in two months time. That will really surprise him!
One of your best chapters- had me in stitches.
Author's Response: Thank you :) I sort of get carried away when I am writing Mel. He is a bad influence on me lol I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin xxx
We all trooped back to our talan and I entertained everyone by singing a slightly risqué but kingly song about a horse, a pineapple and a small stone that I learnt when I was a small elfling in my previous life as Oropher.
LOVE this! Wonderfully funny as usual. I have missed your fab updates being offline fo rso long but have lots of catching up to do.x
Author's Response: Good to see you back :) I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin xxx
Oh- its the last chapter. :( Such good fun and that you have kept up the inventiveness and humour for such an epic is remarkable. I have so enjoyed this- these delightful and charismatic elflings, with their hilarious misdemeanours and adutl senses are just completely wonderful. Thank you for really brightening up a quite dull couple of days.
Author's Response: It's not the last chapter - I just need to post some more. There are many more on my LJ. Fin x
Because I am Oropher; that is why.” Ereolas’ face also shone with the bright light and his hair moved in the same manner that Thranduil’s did. Haldir was vaguely aware during the display that the elfling was also giving him the finger.
I am still laughing having read it three times -wonderful!!
Author's Response: They get away with so much. Poor Legolas and Erestor, their elflings run rings around them lol I am so pleased it made you laugh, Fin x
Once again, I ask what you would like to read?” Erestor was not smiling, and then he added that he was not sure about taking me into an adult section because I am a baby and look like one. He looked at me and raised an eyebrow; a cheap habit used mainly for effect because one lacks confidence in articulating meaningful and concise expression. I told him so and was asked if I wanted smacked bottom. A redundant question in my opinion.I love this recurring gag of the raised eyebrow. And the ridiculous titles given to Oropher by his mad parents and kept on by him- and the dragon skin cloak and things made out of its teeth - a great observation about the way humans commemorate. Yoy should write professionally- comedys or something-you just have an endless imagination and wit.
Author's Response: Thank you for such a lovely comment :D The eyebrow gag will run forever lol Poor Ereolas, all he had left was his title and he isn't even allowed to use it anymore *chuckles* I am pleased you enjoyed it, Fin x
