Caught Between the Light and Dark  by Budgielover 7 Review(s)

So Gandalf and co. were already there! How wonderful. Another amazing and intense battle scene, quite unlike any I've seen so far. To use the goblins own tools against them was a brilliant idea. I greatly anticipate the fight with the Ringwraith. :) I wonder what Boromir, Frodo and Merry are making of all the commotion up above.

The wraith braved the fire, though he himself wasn't wielding it? Interesting!

Lovely cliffhanger here! Now, how is Frodo going to top this? Glad he got out!

Author Reply: You'll enjoy a line of Frodo's concerning the Ringwraith in Chapter 14 - about 'the murder of any number of enemies.' And you hit exactly on the reason this particular fic took so long to finish - each chapter had to top the last. When this one is done, I might just take a vacation... :D

Oh, you CAN'T leave us here!!! Argh! How on earth are they going to get out (which I also wondered when they were facing all those orcs) of this one? What happened to Merry? Gandalf HAS to be more powerful than a ringwraith, hasn't he? *bites nails*

Another action packed, edge-of-your-seat chapter, Budgie! Bravo again!

Author Reply: I just have to laugh at the mental picture you have created! All you left out was the bulging eyes. Seriously, I am delighted and honored that you are enjoying this fic so much. (And don't worry ... Chapter 14 will answer some of your questions. ;D )

Holy Cow! What a cliffhanger (again) :) Can't you write just a little bit faster? Please?

Author Reply: Hi, Pebbles! You'll be happy to hear that the last two chapters have just come back from my dear beta, and you will be seeing them very soon, with much less wait than the others (for which I apologize).

OMG!! Edge of my seat with anxiety!! Awesome!!
(and "you go! little hyper Pippin" ;) )

Author Reply: You're going to fall off that seat! *grins* And I think Pippin needs absolutely no encouragement - he's a ticking time bomb... heh, heh, heh...

"The Nazgűl paid no heed to the flames, or to the burning, dying goblins screaming around it. Its sword in its mailed hands, it ignored the burning figures, side-stepping the pools of flaming oil.With senses they could not begin to understand, it avoided the flames and the stumbling, shrieking figures and walked towards them, grim purpose in its every step."


They came just in time to distract the goblins and the Nazgul! So Frodo and his companions are safe for the moment. But what will Gandalf do against such an enemy?

Of course I feel involved in this story. It's just impossible not to :)

Author Reply: That is so nice of you to say, Andrea. We read (and write) these stories for so many reasons, but foremost for me is the pleasure they seem to give to others. I know I love reading my favorite fanfic classics again and again, and greet each new story from my favorite authors with glee, as if they had given me the best present possible. And possibly even more fun is adding a new story or author to my cherished favorites. It's just so good to hear that you feel the same way!

I seem to be stuck in "Wow" mode for this story.

“We will be slaughtered,” Gimli growled. “There are hundreds of them, not to mention the Ringwraith. It is certain death.” He paused a moment. “Right then, I’ll take the point.”

Oh, Gimli! And crazed, brave Pippin, and wise Aragorn with the fire idea, and Frodo has escaped, but... !!!!


Author Reply: Amazing how those three letters warm us all over, isn't it? *hugs Shirebound*
