|Oh yeah, read my official review first....it's below this one. |
I'd like to add a P.S. to my review....yeah
P.S. Elladan and Elrohir betting on who sees their parents kiss first? Wow they are really really going too far. Ah well. Not that Elrond and Celebrian are exactly "controlling" themselves.
I liked it when Galadriel cut the rope too. That shocking part was funny. =)
Author Reply: Elladan and Elrohir were betting on who would catch their parents kissing NEXT. Elrohir is a bit more observant than Elladan, so my bet is on him.
I think its good kids know their parents love each other. :>)

|Nilmandra I am so sorry! My delay was absolutely ridiculous! But I hafta explain everything.....|
It was graduation day...go through everything.....and finally it was over. I went home, hoping to go on the computer and go on SOA.com (where else?) But when I turned it on, it kept telling me to restart! The next day, we took it to the computer repair shop, where the worker there told us that our computer was old and so we needed to buy a new one. I was shocked. I knew my parents wouldn't buy a computer until late into the summer, and that meant that I couldn't do anything. At all. So now I'm at the library, reviewing your story. I'm so sorry! (I don't know if you exactly remember me or not...)
Okay, that was a pretty good story. Who wouldn't have thought that the twins would sneak into Glorfindel's chamber! LOL! With all the mischief they've done in the past this should be no surprise. =) But Celebrían! Who would have thought of it?
And in the bedroom, the way you made Celebrían purr like a cat...well, let's just say that if someone who knows NOTHING about LOTR had the misfortune of stunbling upon this site....well not a good thing for them. And if they happen to read this story...well....yeah. I'll tell it from their POV. Watch this! A story told from a no-experience of LOTR person!
***Hmm...I'm reading a strange story. Why is Elrond (whoever he is) married to a cat?...a talking cat? *scratches head in puzzlement* And what is an Erestor??? Who are Elladan and Elrohir? I suppose Elrond's a human...Elladan and Elrohir his children??? probably. Are they half breeds? Something like a miniature sphynx? Who knew they could walk on a rope?....(then seeing the words "light-footed elf") Oh!!!!!!!! They're ELVES! Now the whole thing fits together! Now I gotta read the whole thing again now that I understand the characters!***
Sorry Nilmandra. I couldn't help it. Hope you don't get offended. You see, having not reviewed ANYTHING in like two months, I've gotten a little rusty, I gotta admit. Well, now on with the review. What is the matter with me?!
I loved it when Erestor and Lindir threw the twins around. Poor Elrond. "Pale as the moon", eh? Well a concerned father has to have his own opinion too. But it was funny that the celebration was catalogued the whole time (well the one in the past with Glorfindel's brother) by Erestor. Ha ha! I can just imagine the look on Celebrían's face.
I would have written more, but time is running short and I gotta catch up on two months' worth of stories. I'm really sorry! Okee gotta go!
I wish you the best,
Author Reply: I am sorry to hear about your computer. I recently had to replace both my desktop and laptop, so I feel your pain.
I imagine anyone trying to read these stories would be confused if they didn't know anything about Tolkien!

|What a wonderful story! I absolutely loved it, Nilmandra! I've read a few stories regarding Glorfindel and the twins, and they're always good but this one is just precious! And I love the *ahem* sexual tension of the married couples... which is as it should be! :)|
Loved the story and the characters, and it's nice to see just how far back Glorfindel really goes. I hadn't thought much about it until I read this (having only read The Silmarilion once), but Glorfindel really is OLD. LOL :) And worthy of all the love and honor all these stories bestow on him.
Author Reply: Glorfindel says he resembles that comment! I've mostly made up his history, but I see him as a lovely and giving child, and he assures me he was. Glad you enjoyed.. thank you for your kind words.

|Happy Birthday, Gwyn! |
Nice present you got here too!
What a fun story. My favorite part was the beginning when people kept showing up to see what Glorfindel was watching. You did such a nice job of smoothly introducing Erestor and Elrond as they arrived. The scene had such a nice humorous tone. Then Celebrian slid in. I was really chuckling by then. Elrond was properly horrified.
Then this: “Whatever mischief occurs between you and Celebrían is your affair,
I won't even tell you what I thought when I read that. I mean, I know that was not what Elrond meant, but a girl can dream. I was distracted for a moment before I could get back to reading.
The twins and Celebrian turned out to be good sleuths...with a little help. And they used their information to create quite a shindig. A good time was had by all. But I think Glorfindel was really touched by the trouble they went to and by the extravaganza.
Oh! I really liked the part from Glorfindel's brother's diary. Here we have an unnamed character who was physically absent from the story, but his personality was quite evident. He was a pretty visible guy too...to not be there. You did a terrific job with that.
Really nice, Nilmandra. Fun, funny and very sweet.
Author Reply: In my past stories, we learn his dear Amme died on the way to Middle-earth, and his brother and father died in Gondolin. So the brother's diary had to be kept light and fun, since G adored him and he died and I wanted this to be a fun story!
And yes, we can all dream of our own affairs with the Golden One. :>)

|This was really fun, Nilmandra. And Happy Birthday to Gwynhyffar! I always love your Erestor and Glorfindel bantering. The twins are absolutely adorable in their scheming and spying, and Elrond's intelligence-gathering strategies are quite effective. The conclusion of the performance was hysterical. I was shrieking myself at the thought of Glorfindel doing a cannon-ball with a kid under each arm. Lots and lots of fun!|
Author Reply: I figured if Glorfindel could make a fool of himself for Erestor, Erestor would go all out for Glofindel too. Poor Lindir got sucked in simply because he was a named elf and I didn't have to introduce him. I laughed myself silly writing it. :D

|I forgot to add how much I enjoyed seeing Elrond and Celebrian! They were so loving and ... perfect together. Them being caught kissing in the library was great, especially given the on-going bet that the twins seem to have. I loved it!|
Author Reply: Those two were nearly impossible to make behave so I could get the story written! Darn frisky elves.

|Nilmandra I LOVED this story! Thank you so much! I laughed out loud at Erestor with ribbons giving Elrond and Glorfindel the death stare, and I could feel the twins excitement throughout the entire story (the little twins are adorable). Galadriel cutting the rope had me rolling, I did NOT see that coming. Glorfindel was good sport even when he figured out what was going on, and I enjoyed a glimpse of him as an elfling. It's funny, but he's one of those elves who you never really think of as having ever been little. |
Thanks for this!!! :)
Author Reply: Happy Birthday! Hope your day is a enjoyable as Glorfindel's was. I had fun writing this.. so thanks for the idea. :D

|ROTFL! This was great all the way through--too many details to mention! I love Elrond seeing them sneaking into Glorfindel's room with his semi permission and seeing Celebrian involved too; I loved them catching their parents kissing and having a bet on it; I loved the history you made for Glorfindel (however sad it was). But I almost choked to death on my tea when Galadriel cut the rope! I wasn't expecting that! Another version of the story! From someone who has spent too much time looking at medieval texts trying to find all versions of a story--I really appreciated that! Wonderful!|
Author Reply: No one but Galadriel could have done that so serenely, so unexpectedly. And fortunately, Celebrian and the twins are the type to handle a cold dunk with humor :D I really had fun writing it.
