Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: May 16, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I thoroughly enjoy reading about Legolas and Gimli, their banter back and forth and their ongoing competitive Orc kill count always draws a laugh.
I do like a good battle scene, so I can't wait to see all these characters in action.
Great reading. :)

Author's Response:

So gald you are enjopying this one too, Gabriel! You might notice sometimes it doesn't quite follow everything in earlier fics because this was the second story I wrote after Songs of Rohan/Deeper than breathing. So there are things that I hadn't realised- so the orc that Legolas shoots and deprives Elrohir of his revenge isn't in this. 

 

Anyway- I think there are some good battle scenes in this too!

Thank you:)



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: May 17, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I really do like the Silvan's ability, {Legolas in particular}, to connect to the land and the thread 'Song'that binds all life together.
I like how Legolas can read a person {Or in this case} a collective energy,'the dead' by feeling or connecting to the song'.
Love it. :)

Author's Response:

Yes- Legolas has a particular abilty to hear the Song- I like to think that this is why Gandalf chooses him actually, as well as his quietness and skills. He is able to hear the dissonance then unless other magic suppresses it- I must get something into the current fic about Sauron deliberating working something into the rings to disguise their dissonance! I like that idea of 'collective energy'.



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: May 22, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Wow! Great fight scene Ziggy.
Poor Elrohir, all fire and fury, I wish someone would hurry up and figure out what's going on with him-he's so tortured and of course everything he feels and does stems from this. {Damn Nazgul, planting images and beliefs that aren't his.}
Great scene between them though. I was a little afraid that Legolas would leave Elrohir in a mess; knowing how fast and how deadly Legolas is with those knives and how much slower Elrohir would be with a sword to wield, not that he's not a great swordsman or anything.
I was secretly hoping neither of them would win, just come away bruised and bleeding both in ego and body, only because I like both of them.
Great stuff! :D

Author's Response:

Thank you Gabriel- this must have gone into my junk box because I have only discovered it by accident:( But what a lovely surprise!! I'm not sure which chapter this is as they are all cimg up for chapter 1 but I'm guessing it's the scene where Elrohir jumps Legolas on the pier on the way to minas tirith? I admit I am rather pleased with that one. I didn't know until that scene that Elrohir really wanted Legolas.Glad you enjoyed it:)



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 01, 2017 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I like Gimli in this. He's a friend, confindant and Legolas's conscious, in the very rare moments Legolas needs one.
He really has a problem with Elrohir, but who can blame him. Elrohir has had it in for Legolas, when there appears to be no reason for it. If only they knew. Gimli's fealty to Legolas is unrivalled.
I don't quite agree with Aragorn's attitude though.It seems to me he's accusing Legolas of the whole fight club thing, a bit unfair,I think he lets his biases cloud his judgement a bit too much, especially when Legolas has proven his loyalty and love for him as the King by being a part of the fellowship and all that entailed.
Elladan, I'm actually starting to really like this one. Even with his calm sensitive exterior, sometimes he comes across a lot more resilient and strong than Elrohir.
Fantastic! :)

Author's Response:

You are dead right about Aragorn's bias in this- even though Legolas is risking everything, he still takes his brother's side. He does come to regret that of course.

Elladan is a really lovely character- he is calm blue where Elrohir is roiling crimson and pounding blood. They make a good contrast, but it can't stay peaceful with all the secrets Elrohir carries.Thanks forreviewing- IJ really appreciate it, Gabriel.



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 18, 2017 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9

Yes I think Aragorn should hang his head for making Legolas think he had failed him.His selfish pursuits almost cost Legolas his life.

I wish Elrohir would tell someone. I know he feels ashamed of his memories and thoughts even if a part of it is implanted, but he just cannot go on like this, it will make him mad in the end.
Elladan is such a sweetheart. Such a source of strength and peace for his brother, Legolas and anyone else who needs it.
I love your Gimli, you write him so true to how he should be in character, such a gruff exterior but absolutely adores Legolas.
:D

Author's Response:

Don't worry, I make Aragorn remember his unfairness to Legolas MANY times and Gimli enjoys telling him off a lot throughout the res tof this fic! 

I'm afraid a lot of the conflict is EXACTLY as you identified! Because Erohir won't talk about this shameful memory, he does not understand it- if I say any more it will be a spolier so I'll just leave it there:)

I love writing Gimli - I find Pippin and Gimli the easiest, their voices are very strong and they are easy to talk to as a writer- they want to share!!



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 19, 2017 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10

Oh, my gosh, Ziggy, Little Legolas is so adorable, you write him so perfectly.

What's this! Elladan and Legolas having a moment. A rather beautiful moment, I might add. I'd be very interested to see whether anything more develops between these two.

Is there anyone not lusting after Legolas! :)

Author's Response:

I can't help writing everyone lusting after Legolas- but that's simply my own elf-worship!! I admit I could have gone either way with Elladan/Eorihr at this point but the characters had very definite views- again, no spoilers!!



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 09, 2017 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7

I think it would best to keep Legolas well away from the sea. The longing seems to put him in unnecessary danger.
Elrohir rides in like a knight in shining armour, takes Legolas into his charge, heals him and then takes advantage of him. Oh, Elrohir, tut tut.
Great stuff Ziggy! :D

Author's Response:

Oh -you're right in all the best bits now! Yes- Elrohir behaves REALLY badly but it haunts him terribly afterwards. He is rather magnificant though - I hope you could see the fanart that went with it- for some reason, my Apple won't show it. So glad you enjoyed this- I think it gets better- you've got some great sexy bits coming up.



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 14, 2017 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8

What would Elrohir do without Elladan. I notice Elladan is starting to put all the pieces together albeit, slowly, with the strange moods Elrohir has been in lately. Finally, thank the stars!
One of my favourite parts;

'It is like the Mazar-kut,' he said softly, and met the astonished Dwarf's deep brown gaze. 'The call in your heart for Ekhezd-dum, where Mahal first delved and the Seven Fathers sleep, awaiting the breaking of the world. 'He lifted three fingers of his left hand and then pressed them against the Dwarf's chest, over his heart. 'The fire in your heart that calls stone to stone is like the song the Elves hear that calls them home to Valinor, across the sea.

I love that Gimli was so astonished at an Elf knowing something of the Dwarfs' secrets. It also made Elrohir come across so wise.
Awesome Ziggy! :D

Author's Response:

What is so noce about your reviews, Gabriel, is that I m being reminded of things I had forgotten! I liked Elrohir's understanding of Khazad culture in this too- thank you for picking that out!!

ANd thank you for all these lovely reviews- makes my day ot get one of these:)

I hope I'm reading this in the right sequence.
Ziggy, you write Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli so beautifully, I feel like I'm watching a movie. It's in the way you describe little details about each character and the relationships between them. Great stuff. :)

Author's Response:

The sequence is this:

Black Arrow

More Dangerous

Through a Glass

Deeper than Breathing/ also I have it titlted as Songs of Rohan on some sites

Sons of Thunder

Where the Shadows lie.

 

 

Hope that helps Gabriel.

Thank you for that very lovely comment- I admit I enjoy writing these three. They just feel right together and usually write themselves. They are different enough to give a really good dynamic.

I know you wrote this some time ago, but I love your style of writing. To me it almost borders on a type of poetry and I like the way you've taken a piece of the silmarillion, that not many, if any would bother to write about. I think Finarfin has been overlooked by many as a character you can explore. Keep up the great writing, albeit a small piece, it still made an impact. :)

I am new to fanfiction writing and this site but have always wanted to be a writer from childhood. I totally agree with and love that every writer has a vastly different style from the next, where would stories be with out it. I, like every other writer am passionate about feeding the flame of enjoyment to the readers to keep them spellbound by and glued to every word and sentence. I must confess that I have read one or two short stories and have been too shy to review or have not known what to say without it sounding ridiculous, that is until recently. I love that you have highlighted the reviewing process so hopefully readers out there will think more on giving their thoughts about a story in future.

I saw this on the Random Story window and had to read.
This is so awesome! Absolutely hilarious!
I'm not sure whether Huan was supposed to come across this way, but it seems he regards everyone around him as complete morons, like he's so bored with the whole situation, with this existence, maybe with Celegorm as well.
Can't wait to read more!
:D

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am really pleased you are enjoying the story :) You are right, Huan does regard everyone around him as a complete moron lol

Date: June 18, 2017 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 - The Kiss

Curufin and Huan are so awesome together in this. A great laugh. They compliment each other perfectly, Huan should be Curufin's dog.
So much sarcasm and tongue-n-cheek comments. I also noticed a little competition or out-smarting going on between them.
I especially like Curufin's view of Huan, {Poodle} and everyone else's image of him as a huge Wolf. Is this because the Feanorions are just such hardened and aggressive warriors that a Wolf appears as a puppy?
So funny!
:D

Author's Response: Huan is an animal maia and can appear as a wolf at will; however, the brothers never see him that way. Must be quite frustrating for them really lol Thank you so much for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjopying the story :)

Date: June 18, 2017 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 - Confrontation.

Beren is so pathetic, how he managed to survive the whole Sauron thing with Finrod is beyond me.
I honestly think one of the reasons Curufin bed him was because he's an easy target. Not much between the ears.
Love it!

Author's Response: Maybe Beren survived the Sauron thing because of Finrod - otherwise the werewolf would have killed him for sure, if he didn't get killed before that lol Thank you so much for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjopying the story :)



Reviewer: Gabriel Signed
Date: June 19, 2017 Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 - Final Chapter

If it's not bad enough, that Beren is naive and rather pathetic, Luthien is a piece of work and so full of herself, she's so annoying. In a way I was glad Celegorm kidnapped her and kept her locked up in a tower. The less we see of her the better in my view.
Loved this story, such a good laugh.
:D

Author's Response: Luthien is definitely the boss in that relationship! Can't think why Celegorm was so smitten with her. Thank you so much for your lovely comment - I am pleased you are enjoying the story :)

I've just read the scenes with Galadriel and her mirror and have got to say, the images while reading were fantastic, in fact the whole picture you created of Lothlorien was just beautiful. I do love Elrohir and Elladan too, such wonderful characters.

Author's Response:

Thank you Gabriel! I rarely get comments on Galadriel so this is extra nice. I think she is far more interesting than she appears in LOTR- she came over the ice with Fingolfin, went to Doriath and learned under Melian, then founded a kingdom of her own and which she is clearly in charge of!

Just finished reading the story, loved that whole situation with Elrond, Vilya and the ONE, so damn awesome and I also wanted to mention the beautiful sensual and mischievious relationship going on with Aragorn and Arwen. It was such a breath of fresh air to see these two barely be able to keep their hands off each other. And Legolas, Legolas, Legolas, what a sweetheart, so young and so easily swayed.

Author's Response:

How very lovely to get this review, Gabriel- thank you for seeing the Aragorn/Arwen thing going on as very few peope mention that and I really enjoyed writing a rather frustrated Arwen with a romantic Aragorn. He's going to have a bit of shock when she arrives in MT and expects him to stop worshipping her and become a proper husband- but I htink she is wise and clever and will sort everything out to her satisfaction.

 

Yes- Legolas. Love him so much in this!! Thank you as well for noticing the Rings- I think Tolkien created something wonderful and never got round to really explorin them because he ditched the One rather quickly:) I've got plans for Vilya;D

Aah, Erestor! You know how much I love your Erestor. I don't want him pining over Elladan. He's mine, all mine. He deserves to be with someone, he's so lonely; constantly torturing himself and brooding about the Feanorians.
But who in all Arda would be able to handle him?
Yes, yes, I know, Elladan is sweet and kind, and would balance Erestor, but I would rather see him with someone just as fiery and all power and fury.
Glorfindel is one possibility, But he's too honorable and with great integrity etc and still loves Idril, so he's off the list.
That damn ring playing on their hearts desires, so sad, tormenting as it does. Poor Glorfindel, why does everyone have to be so tortured in anything to do with Tolkien, on the flip side though does make for great storytelling though.
:)

Author's Response:

You are spoiling me now, Gabriel! So many lovely reviews in one day- you have well and truly banished the Spam Blues:)

I love erestor too- but oh, he is so Elladan's I'm afraid. When he gets to Minas Tirith, and sees Elladan with Imrahil I think that is going to ht him hard but he is erestor- and used to hard knocks. I find him very easy to write actually- he feels very present when I write him. 

Thank you so much Gabriel. Def going to write that Maedhros/Fingon for you- working on it in my head.



Title: Elegy for Númenor by elfscribe
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 12]
Summary: Feature

The Númenórean King Ar-Pharazôn thinks he has won an easy victory when Sauron surrenders to him and becomes his prisoner. But the march back to Umbar with the conniving Dark Lord turns out to have many unanticipated twists and turns through a nest of politics and intrigue, including Sauron's attempted seduction of Ar-Pharazôn's favorite male courtesan.

This is volume I of a planned trilogy. An epic tale of political intrigue, the desire for immortality and love, sorcery, hubris, loyalty, lust, and catastropic amounts of water.

So Mairon gets the body he wants, but also unbeknowns to him the habits and memories of the Elf he un-housed. Is that even a word?
So I'm wondering whether taking the Elf's form will actually come back to bite him in the end.
I can't wait to find out how this all pans out for him.
:D

I am so sorry, I forgot to answer your question in the first review.

Unfortunately I have not posted a story as yet, but it is in the works.
I have only recently joined this site, as it is my first time writing Fan-fiction ever.
I have only just worked out how to review, so goodness knows how I'm going to go when I finally go to post something. :)

Author's Response:

I like your term "unhoused."  It all gets rather complicated for Mairon in this story. Good for you writing your own story! There is definitely a learning curve in posting and everything, but people in this fandom are friendly and happy to help. If you have an LJ recommend friending the Silmarillion Writers Guild. Happy to have you friend me as well although I'm not as active as I was. LJ name is elfscribe5.  Archive of Our Own is a good place to post as well.

I especially like how you've given the reader a window into just how powerful Mairon can be, instead of it being all about Orcs or Trolls or other creatures Sauron created. It's just nice to see this side of him.
Fantastic! :)

Author's Response:

Hi Gabriel! Glad you're enjoying Elegy. I enjoyed writing Mairon as a rather complex villain in this story. Just to let you know, vol. 1 all 32 some chapters of this is complete. I just didn't finish posting it to Faerie, in part because it wasn't getting much readership here. If you get to the end of what I posted here and find you want to continue, it's available in its entirety on the Silmarillion Writer's Guild or on Archive of Our Own. Links on my bio here. Thanks so much for your lovely, encouraging feedback. Much appreciated. Do you write in the Silm fandom?

Oh, poor poor Fingaer, really feeling for this Elf right now. {Celebrimbor's son} great idea!
I'm sort of hoping something goes wrong with Mairon's incantations or maybe the concoction he has brewed is missing an ingredient or something, so Fingaer can live another day. And yet maybe that's not such a good idea either,for he doesn't want to live any more either.
But I certainly don't want to see him go out in this manner.
Great reading! :)

I know. I felt bad for Fingaer. However Mairon may find he's miscalculated a bit. Glad you're enjoying the story!

I love anything written about Maedhros and Fingon and this is so sweet a story.
Just a little peek into the day to day dynamics of the Cousins' world.
Loved it! :D
