Review of chapter "To Be or Not to Be" from UnscathedAnimal
Review:
Even though you apparently abandoned this fic, I made an account here specifically to leave you this review.

For the most part it's great. I liked the build up, and the back-story, and the whole situation. But the huge dialogue portion lost me completely.

Don't get me wrong; the dialogue itself is a bit abrupt but mostly it's fine. The problem is how you presented it. Having multiple characters speaking without one single description of what's going on, and without telling the reader who's speaking when. Between two people it's still bad but not awful, you can get lost partway through but just count off "person one, person two, person one..." and you can keep track.

But then you added Tara (without even describing what happened. That was really bad. Suddenly someone is asking about Tara? what? oh, apparently she showed up. WTF?). With three people and no descriptions and nothing but talking and not even mentioning who's talking? instantly, 150% lost.

I'll try again to read through it; but between that mess, and wondering if you do all your dialogue like that, AND reading an abandoned fic... I might just give up on this. Sorry.

Review of chapter "The Assualt on Dol Guldur" from IronDruid
Review:
Your story was a lot of fun and I hope you continue writing it. I like how you skipped to the end of the age and had Buffy telling stories. I thought it was cool to see it from a different perspective. Bringing Willow back was cool as well. I hope you show her giving up the Ring of Fire to Ganldalph and how that affects her abilities. Anyway I enjoyed your story.

I just started this story and so far it is great. The chapter is sad, but I love the way you set it up. Unaging and Immortal in a world that wouldn't understand. Anyway I'm off to continue reading your intruiging stroy.

Review of chapter "The Assualt on Dol Guldur" from bradsan
Review:
Shame on me. I noticed I didn't review this great story for several chapters.

Again compliment about your writing style. It is really easy to read and never boring. What I like so much is that you have everything covered, fights, laughs, tears, friends, family. You named you'll find it. I like how you give Buffy mortal families/husbands and how she will hopefully end up with a immortal family and hopefully kids.

I'm not a real Scooby fan but I'm glad Willow did come to middle earth and doing so well. It will do Buffy good having somebody around who knows what she is talking about.

You made me laugh several times but with Buffy calling Elrond El dorado I laugh out loud.

Can't wait for the next chapters with more interaction with Legolas and Glorl. She will train Legolas until he drops. He will love it and hate it at the same time. Wonder if she trained Aragorn as well.

Don't wait to long love to read more.

Review of chapter "The Assualt on Dol Guldur" from (Recent Donor)Quindma
Review:
I am so glad I stumbled over this story. Wellwritten with an in depth quality that doesn't confuse, but allows the story to flow and capture. Ty
Comments from author:
Thanks, if you're still interested, I'll try to update soon. The muse was singing a different song this fall, but I think she's ready to get back to the LOTRs, at least part time. I miss Middle Earth!

Review of chapter "The Assualt on Dol Guldur" from Inoeth
Review:
This is a truly fantastic story that is doing a great job of integrating Buffy charectors into the LOTR story - and will be showing some significant butterflies in terms of the strength and power of the people of Middle Earth when the events of LOTR actually begin. I'll admit you had me worried about how long it would take to get there until you started to jump first decades and then some serious - several thousand years- jumps to Buffy's shenanigans and very cleaver back-story-telling with Faramir. I truly look forward to seeing how different Middle Earth is because of her influence compared to OTL. That the Dwaves and their armies in Moria will be huge, along with potentially butterflying Smaug and therefore altering the history of the Dwarvesr of Erebor... Not to mention the Greenwood remaining so rather than becoming Mirkwood... all really messing with the TL of Bilbo - if he ever becomes a player whatsoever.

I truly look forward to seeing how this all develops- along with of course, the continued development of Buffy and her immortal life.
Comments from author:
Me too, and thanks for the review. It's been awhile, but I'm not giving up, have a lot written, and still work on it, but the muse was singing Harry Potter, so I diverted for a while, but I'll update soon. I'm glad you mentioned the Faramir thing, I was worried it wasn't working out. Bilbo I love, so he will make an appearance, but the story will be different, maybe I'll make that a side story. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to review, I'll update when I can.

Review of chapter "The Assualt on Dol Guldur" from AllenPitt
Review:
Did Willow come instead of Saruman? Just wondering. So is Gandalf now off helping Thorin & Bilbo?
Comments from author:
Saruman is there, but I think I said before the battle that he's still with Cirdan learning stuff. I didn't get rid of any wizards. The Blues might make an appearance later too. Gandalf, if he helps Thorin and Bilbo in this story (he probably will) wouldn't be doing that for almost two thousand more years. Its a flashback scenario. Buffy is talking to Faramir when he's fourteen or fifteen so a few years before the events of the Lord of the Rings novels, and she's telling the story of when Sauron first came to Greenwood and how she got rid of him about 1100 of the Third Age. I think I'm leaving it open for the Hobbit, because I really like Bilbo and Thorin and Gandalf, so even though Sauron's gone, I'll probably keep a few spiders lurking about, but Buffy's not letting Greenwoood turn to Mirkwood. Probably more than you wanted to know.

Review of chapter "A New Brother and an Old Sister" from grd
Review:
You have woven a tale comparible and worthy of being a classic as the original. Cannot what to see how Legolas grows with Big Sister Buffy's influence. A wisecracking, witty, kick ass and Slayer trained Elf Prince that probably will use Earth slang to butcher Elvish and Common. I love it! Middle Earth and Sauron won't know what it's in for.
Comments from author:
Thank you. What a compliment! I hope you continue to enjoy it. I'm having fun with it too.

Review of chapter "A New Brother and an Old Sister" from AbeEllis
Review:
Very nice :)
I like how you integrated Willow so far even though I was a little bit unsure about including her, very nice idea.

As for Glorfindel I have a hard time imagining any particular actor except for maybe Chris Hemsworth, who kinda seems to fit regarding the age thing/problem and as "Thor" kinda fits the warrior theme as well (though you probably might want to search for a picture without too much beard, maybe like in his wikipedia-picture). If you are looking for something different it might be helpful to know which drawings of Glorfindel you like.

Anyways, looking forward to more chapters, hopefully soon ;)
Comments from author:
Thanks, and I completely agree. He's a good choice, and I like that picture too.

Review of chapter "Gondor Vs. Rhun" from AllenPitt
Review:
Wow, you've jumped ahead a tiny little bit. Nice flashback. So... Arnor et al lasted longer because of Buffy? Makes sense.
That Sauron was behind everything is plain now, but I thought most people believed him gone for good until the Ring re-surfaced? Or was that just the Men, ie the elves knew better?
Comments from author:
I'm not entirely sure who knew what, but there's no doubt in my mind that Gondor would know that Sauron was alive by the end of the third age. Sharing a border with him, losing territory etc etc, and I think Gandalf knows, and Buffy for sure. She can feel him, knew that he wasn't dead when she went to Gondor for the first time. I think with Buffy in the story they know a lot sooner that he is alive, especially when he shows up in Greenwood. Thanks for all the comments!
