Hunting the Spider  by Ellynn 40 Review(s)
Raksha The DemonReviewed Chapter: 1 on 8/22/2021

This is a story I always wanted to write. I'm glad that someone is bringing it to light.

I hope that Faramir plays a major role here; i.e. actually faces and kills Shelob himself.

Looking forward to more!

Author Reply: I hope Faramir fans will like the story :) As for the details... I won't say anything, it would be a spoiler :)))
Thank you so much for the review!

The calm before the storm.

Want to see how you play out the Ithilien Dunedain. My favourite is more towards the Northern Dunedain.

Any elf will assist Faramir's men, dear?

PS - Yes I did read your notes dear don't worry. Just able to reply now. You speak good English and write well now that I know you're Croatian.

Great job, dear. I'm Malaysian.


Author Reply: My English *is* good, but not that good as you can read in the "final product". Occasionally I make a grammar error, or write an awkward phrasing, or I'm insecure about which synonym to use. All of those things are corrected&polished by native speakers - my beloved beta-readers. I am grateful beyong words to them.

Elves... no. :)

Thank you so much. *hugs*

So, her favorite food was once elf. Someone should warn Legolas's colony that something dangerous is in the woods. Come to think, she is not afraid of Gondorian blades. I think the elves who once lived in Mirkwood may have to lend their senses and elvish blades to this hunt. Sting, at this point, is leagues away in the Shire. Either Anduril, or the Elves, now.

Author Reply: I imagine that the elves cleared Mirkwood of all evil creatures in the Fourth Age - after all, there is a note about it in the end of RotK, and the forest was renamed into Forest of Greenleaves. So Legolas is not in danger.
But the Gondorians are... for now.
Thank you for the review!

Haldar is a calm and experienced Ranger, and also a wise one who tries to sense more than what can be seen or heard. He senses danger, and something unusual going on, and those are the instincts that must be trusted.

Author Reply: Calm, experienced, wise... and something else. It will be revealed. ;)
Thank you. *hugs*

Yes, Aragorn heard first hand from Sam and Frodo about that creature. It would be on his mind, I am sure. You have set the stage and built up tension nicely! This should be good!

Author Reply: Thank you! I hope I won't dissapoint you.

Oh, this is scary...! Great build-up of suspense! Thank you!

Author Reply: thank *you*!
it's good to hear that my attempt of suspense worked :)))

*shivers* There are scary things going on, and no mistake.

I appreciate reading about the happy marriage of Faramir and Eowyn, and what a good team they have become to guide their people.

Author Reply: Faramir might have the official title, but I imagine that Faramir and Eowyn ruled together.
Thank you, dear!

Oh my, what a chilling and fascinating premise for your story. It already sounds like Faramir and Aragorn are becoming a good team.

Author Reply: I'm glad you like the idea. Thank you for the review, dear. :*

Interesting. Very interesting indeed.

You got me hooked.

I'll be waiting hehe.

Btw, mind if I ask where you're from dear? Since you kept staying english isn't your first language.


Author Reply: Hello again! It's good to hear from you again, and I'm so happy to read this. :)))

P.s. Yes, there *will* be a battle in the end this time.
P.p.s. I hope you were able to read all my replies - I had not hints that you did.
P.p.p.s. I am from the city of Rijeka, Croatia. You can ask anything you want to know about me or my writing. :) You can contact me by e-mail, by clicking my name when you open my profile. ;)
