There are few things more ruthless than one out to find a mate for herself--or her daughter! They are facing a time of it, aren't they? Heh!

Author Reply: Well - fighting off mamas with their eyes on the great-grandsons of the Noldor High King will give them something to focus on! I think they are beginning to overcome the initial sense of loss, anyway.

*rofl* this is tooooooooooo cute........................

*might become an Elf-fan against her will at this rate*

Author Reply: Well - when it comes to elves, these three are rather fun. And they are vulnerable! How can they resist matchmaking mamas!

*giggles* I can't quite picture Legolas, Elladan and Elrohir being afraid of little elf, wait, yes I can! Poor lads! I pity them!

Reminds me of when I was volunteering in a summer daycamp, I had two kids attatched to my legs, one holding onto me from behind and I was *trying* to get everyone rounded up for the next activity. Kind of a hard thing to do when I you have three hyper kids literally hanging on to you and you can't move, plus untied shoelaces didn't help the situation...

Author Reply: Kids of all kinds can be pretty terrifying - and these three are accustomed to dealing with most problems by firing arrows at them.

I think they are even more scared of the mothers of eligible elf maidens - these three must be a pretty good 'catch' as husbands. It's one thing picking your own beautiful elleth, but none of them want to get caught! On the other hand - their fathers wouldn't be happy if they were just plain rude.

Safer to keep out of the way.

Oh,my poor deluded elves! They need to learn to 'go courtin' and have a good time! Really, how bad can it be? :D

Author Reply: I suspect they wouldn't mind the courting part - it's the being caught!

On the other hand, you three fools, ellyth might prove very entertaining!!!

Author Reply: I do so agree - but who wants matchmaking mammas! I can just see them, eyeing up the delectable threesome and licking their lips. It must feel like being a virgin at a vampire convention.

I started cutting and pasting parts that made me chuckle, but there were altogether too many.

Very clever! Scintillating dialogue (always wanted to be able to say that), great sense of timing.

Was very glad to see part 2. Is there a part 3 in the offing?

Author Reply: Thank you. I managed to use the word 'redolent' in something or other. I enjoyed that! Is that sad?

Part 3 - don't know. It depends on inspiration striking. Hope so - it's rather fun writing these.
