You did a great job with this courtship story, G. Can't wait for your next one :-)

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Thank you! It was a learning experience as I tried to keep each chapter a story on its own and something like a drabble (which I connot seem to write). The next one I start posting will be my epic that was years in the maing and at one time was nominated for a MPA before it was finished. I look forward to hearing what you think of it. I think this weekend will be a good time to get it started. Thanks again for the comments, support, and yes, periodic corrections! ~G

Geez, nothing like getting the entire spectrum of the Valar involved in the life of one elf - LOL. Still he is male and all males are a bit hard-headed.

I was very pleased to see the next chapters of this up today. This has been wonderful. I can't wait for Maglor and Elrond to meet again.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Glad you are enjoying this! Yah, after getting the first couple Valar involved I decided that they all would have a hand in this before it was all done (I think I got them all) and just wait till we get going on pairings....didn't want to leave anyone lonely! A few more chapters will be up soon :) ~G

Four chapters at once, and what fun. I love this tale of yours and can hardly wait for the next grouping, or even the next single chapter. Maglor is, of course, one of my favorites since I am a Feanorian girl, and Lindir is also a fondness. You've got two of my favorites here. I can hardly wait to see what you do with them.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: I am glad you like this so far! Maglor is also one of my favs. I think you will like how things develop--this is quite a lengthy tale. More will post very soon so hang tight.

More please? (Yes, I am a greedy and never-satisfied little twerp.)

Shame on Elrond for allowing the hurts of a 16-year-old to influence the decisions of one 1000's of years older. Loved this latest group of chapters. More please...

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: What a wonderful way to put it! He is acting a bit childish for one of Arda's more wise and noble elves! And more will come soon :)

Another cliff to hang from, but at least forgiveness was offered and accepted and they may now remain in Imladris (at least for a time).

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: This one is full of twists and turns and yes, a few cliffies. I am slowly catching up and getting a few more chapters re-read/proofed (it's been a while since I read this). Glad you are enjoying it! ~G

Date: January 24, 2012 Title: Chapter 19: Chapter 19 Segue: Rules for Redemption

I really like this little aside. This will be a real challenge, for Maedhros, Maglor, Lindir, Elrond and whoever will possibly be the perfect unconditional love for Feanaro's oldest son. It was disappointing that Feanor and the remaining sons responded poorly to Maglor's happiness, but at least Maedhros gets his chance at happiness too.

- Erulisse (ome L)

Author's Response: Oh the challenges are just beginning for this crew! I regret that I have little love for Feanor and paint he and several of his sons in a bad light but not everyone regrets and repents their actions in the real world so neither do they in my stories. Meadhros will get his chance at love as will MANY others! Off to post more--need a little diversion! Thanks for commenting (I really look forward to them) ~G

Reviewer: Erulisse Signed
Date: January 25, 2012 Title: Chapter 21: Chapter 21

Oh, those childhood stories could indeed be "interesting" and good fodder for future blackmail by the Twins :-) A rough road lies ahead for Maedhros, though.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Kids always love to hear storys about their parents...well, most do and the twins are quite the pair! But for all the light hartedness, yes, Meadhros is in for a rought go of it...forgiveness is a difficult thing...

Reviewer: Erulisse Signed
Date: February 03, 2012 Title: Chapter 25: Chapter 25

Lovely and perfect. Finally Glorfindel's fears of replacement can be laid to rest, and they can work forward to find the best fit for Maedhros, who of course will end up with Erestor. Keep the chapters coming :-) Every time you post, you make my day!

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: So glad you like this one! You're only halfway through this epic--much, much more to come and an update will come in the next day or two. And for as much as my updates make your comments make mine! :) ~G

Date: February 11, 2012 Title: Chapter 31: Chapter 31

I love how everyone is coupling off. The idea of the smithy was inspired, and I can't wait for Maedhros and Erestor to get together. Elladan and Rumil make a fun pair, Elrohir's light-heartedness is the perfect foil for Haldir and then there is our favorite Balrog-slayer and Orophir. One does have to wonder, however, how elves ever manage to have new generations since you seem to be having all of the mose eligible elves partner off with other males - LOL.

- Erulisse (one L)
having fun just giving you a hard time since you KNOW I love your two-somes

Author's Response: LOL! No kidding! But this was written when I would not even dream of writing het so it's slash all the way. to make matters worse...I don't write male preg!! HA! Good thing they live so long. The pairings just seemed to multiply! Then it got to a point that I did not want anyone to feel left out! However, as is always the case in my's never quite that easy... Hope you continue to enjoy this saga :) ~G

So nice to have new chapters, and the pairings of the various elves are working out just wonderfully. I can hardly wait for the next chapter(s).

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Thank you! I had not planned on their being delays, but I find myself re-reading and proofing before posting. It was beta'd by a couple wonderful people but this was one of my first pieces and I think I have improved over the years so I fix things here and there. The pairing just sort of took off---like having nearly every Vala in the beginning helping Lindir. More should post it a day or so! Thank for reading and commenting---I look forward to it :) ~G

Author's Response: I am glad you feel the story is worthy of a break! I know how it is when you are in the middle of a story...catching all the ideas that fly through your head and getting them down before the muses move on...hope this tale have you a relaxing little break and I am very happy to see a comment from you--got worried.

Sleep now, solve problem later sounds like good advice on all fronts. I think Thranduil needs to take a trip - Elrond is too lonely.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Alway sound advice! My father always told me to sleep on any big decision. It's never failed me yet! You and Elvewen are on the same page--are you saying that Elrond need to get laid? *snicker*

Whoa - fast forward indeed. But I was very pleased to go onto Fairie this afternoon and see two new chapters up. You're getting towards the end and I will be disappointed when that happens, although I can re-read it :-)

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: I am flattered that you would consider it worthy of re-reading! Now I am hoping you did not miss chapters 46 & 47 that I posted a few days before these two--they helped to keep the fast forward clear. When this is all done, I hope you will read some more of my stuff--still have some elf things to post for those who prefer pointed ears ;) ~G

It is disappointing that this has ended, but so delightful that everyone is with the right person. Well done.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: It was bitter sweet for when---years to complete. The original ending chapters (although they have a similar feel) were better written before they computer crashed! Still, I am content and very happy it was so well received! Thanks for making me smile and feeding the muses...more stories soon! ~G

I had to stop reading Crowdaughter's story, it was so disturbing to me and very little can do that. I thought I probably could handle your one-off because it was short. The thing that allowed me to make it through was the fact that in this, Legolas has a plan. It might be fostered by the presence of the Ring, but what has happened to him and the woodland elves is blacker than that small golden band. I find myself wishing for time to speed up so that that dual death can indeed happen at his hands. I too am proud of Legolas and his people. Well done.

- Erulisse (one L)

Author's Response: Yes, that story is very affecting. So affecting that I had to write this one to come to terms with it. Aislynn was very generous to let me publish it. I'm glad you liked it!
