Review of story "Courtly Behaviour" from Anonymous Reviewer
Review:
Hey!
Love this fic - have I mentioned that lately? I love how you depict Wes picking up the language - pretty fast for an average human, but not for our Wes!
And I love the Fellowships' reaction to the "Wes-blade."
Looking forward the the next installment - please keep writing & posting!

This just keeps getting better. Wesley's linguistic escapades are both amusing and wonderfully real. You've done an excellent job portraying someone having trouble with the language. I've always thought the problem with many crossover fics is the random ability of all characters to speak the others' languages. After all... if someone writes a Buffy crossover with some anime show, would the anime characters really speak anything but Japanese, or English as a second language? I think that's one of your strengths here. I can't wait to read more of it!

The Fellowship's curiosity is growing about Wesley, and my curiousity is growing about what's going to happen next! Great chapter.

It only makes sense, to me, that things are going to happen differently within the context of the story. I mean, after all, the whole course of the quest (with the Ring) was changed when the X-factor that is Wes dropped down on the Fellowship from the sky. I look forward to seeing what changes you have envisioned for our wayward crew.

You've got an intriguing dynamic going, especially with the Wes of early season 4. He seemed so emotionally dead at that point in time, it's hardly surprising it's carrying through in Moria. Still, should be interesting when the ice around his soul starts cracking.

Review:
This is a most excellent story.

Top marks for the story. It is the first Wesley in the realm of Middle Earth story that I have found. It is well done and I am most eager to read more. The beginning was entertaining and the language barrier delightful surprise that I hope will bring more curious surprises.

I am in the belief that when new elements are entered into a story, the result will have consequences such as differences in battles and who lives and dies. I'm sure certain elements such as the fall of Gandalf the Grey and the rise of Gandalf the White are necessary, but still there will be differences. Wes knows magic and therefore may change what happens or he may not even try.

I only hope you don't have Frodo being stabbed by a spear. I grow weary of reading it in all these crossovers. You would think people would change how the mithril armour is uncovered. Arrows by orcs or Boromir trying to kill Frodo for the ring or something new. However, I also would like to see Boromir live if possible. He never seems to get much chance to redeem himself after his madness in most stories. Maybe having someone get permanently dead is supposed to have meaning, but Buffy's realm seems to be about redemption...so maybe you'll let him live to prove himself.

At the scene of his death, there was to be a parting of ways. He was going to Gondor with any companions he has earned. Aragorn had longed delayed his decision on where to go and was awaiting Frodo's answer to what his desire was.

If you are going to have a crossover, change things.

I usually leave such reviews when I have read enough to reach a point where all my thoughts come out. I hope you don't take any of this as more than a review saying 'Awesome story' and some opinions I have.

More please.

Yes, I am continuing to enjoy this fic! I liked how you split the chapter into two sections, one from more of the point of view of the Fellowship, and then one section more from Wesley's POV.

Oh! Simply fab! I really do hope you continue this: it's unique and exciting to see a Wesley-centric crossover! I'm very much looking forward to more and I particularly like the thought of Eowyn as the love interest..

Oh this is fantastic! I love the way you brought Wes ino their world, and I love that he has to learn their language. It's so funny, i can just see Pippin jumping up and down in excitement. And Aragorn having to mime out his words! What a perfect picture!

Looking forward to seeing how this develops.

As always, and excellent read

Yeeaaa, finally! A Wes/LOTR Xover fiction. I always thought that Wes would be an excellent character to throw into the Tolkienverse, but, honestly, I suck at writing him, and had been sitting on my thumbs, hoping someone else would write one eventually. Yeaaa, you did!

Chosing to portray Wesley as he was during S4 of A:tS was a good idea. In past seasons, he seemed slightly....flat. I look forward to reading the rest of this story.

That was a very slick transition from Angel to LoTR. I'm looking forward to reading more.
