Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Oxnate
Review:
Wow, amazing.

I didn't realize I hadn't read this. Honestly, I wish this had been part of the RoTK universe. It's sad, yes. But it feels so real that I wanted it to be a part of your wonderful series.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much.

I couldn't bear to do this to Tindómë's twins, although I did think about it. And so in her world there is still the worry about whether they will sail, or stay in Imladris and she'll never see them again. Which will become a bigger worry as time goes by.

Love, love, and love. So much.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much - I think it is probably one of the best things I have written - although I always feel that I ought to apologise for upsetting the readers...

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
Awesome! I loved how you did the reunion in Mandos' Hall. Wonderful story dear!
Comments from author:
I'm so glad that you enjoyed the story, and liked the idea of reunions for Elrohir with ALL his siblings.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
Oh! No Elrohir :( Wonderfully written chapter!
Comments from author:
It was the hardest chapter to write. The idea of Arwen not knowing how to die at will as she had expected, like Aragorn, has been in my mind for one of the Returnverse stories to come - but it seemed to fit so well into this one.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
Beautiful and deeply moving - ahh I hate the idea of the twins separating! It always makes me so sad :(
Comments from author:
Thank you - this story came to me and kicked me to write it - and it was really painful to do because I hate the idea of them being separated too.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
This was beautiful and touching. Sorry to take so long to review. Life kind of got in the way as I lost my own dad and had to go home for the funeral.

Thank you

Blue
Comments from author:
I am so sorry to hear about your dad - I can see that this must have been quite difficult reading, under the circumstances. Thank you so much for reviewing it.

A tissue came in handy for this chapter, too! Thank you for sharing such a touching short story with us. So lovely!
Comments from author:
Thank you - I so am glad that you liked it - even though it was a bit of a tear-jerker.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Past Donor)Joyful
Review:
I am very glad for this chapter.

This whole story was wonderful, and while I love your Returniverse more than just about any fic series out there, this was a nice variation.

:D


Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
I'm so glad that you found that this chapter finished it off hopefully and made a good variation.

There will be a new Small Returns story for Christmas.

Very nice story story dealing with the mortality of those that are immortal. It touched my heart as your stories usually do.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Past Donor)Joyful
Review:
I know I;m usually your fastest commenter, reading the story as soon as I get the update, but I had to take some time before reading this chapter. Because of the recent death in my family, this was a very hard story to read, but it's very beautiful, and I eagerly anticipate the next chapter.
Comments from author:
I am so sorry about your family bereavement. I am glad that you felt you could read this and leave such positive comments despite that. I hope to post the final chapter tonight - if not then it will be tomorrow. You may still need your handkerchief, but I promise there is hope at the end.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Malyce
Review:
I have to say that of all the LOTR writers on this site you capture the feelings and ambience of events up to and after Elessar's death the best. Your story evokes Tolkien beautifully.
Comments from author:
Oh - thank you so much! What a lovely compliment - I want to dance you around with joy now; which is quite unsuitable at such a point in the story, really...

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
I love your writing, it's very evocative. Thank you for sharing this, I'm looking forward to reading the rest!

P.S. Peredhil is the plural of peredhel.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much - the third and final chapter should be ready to post before the end of the week - it just needs my beta to get over his night shifts.

Yes - the plural of peredhel is odd as it isn't quite formed the same way as that of ellon or elleth - as the usual convention is for them to form the plural by the use of a 'y'. In this particular instance it didn't really matter whether it was in the plural or the singular as he was referring to himself - which is why my beta let it by...

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from starshinedown
Review:
The tissue warning was well given. Bawled like a baby, I did. Thank you for a beautiful second chapter.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much. The final chapter is not quite so sad - but you may still need the hankie.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from grundy
Review:
Oh, poor Elladan! You're really putting him through the wringer!
*hugs him and Gimli*
Comments from author:
I know, I felt terrible about it. And yet the story demanded to be written.

The third and final chapter is with my beta now - and then I will go back to something a little lighter for the 'Small Returns'.
