Review of chapter "Now We Are Three" from LallaBelle
Review:
Okay so that was not one of my guesses at all... okay, to be honest I didn't have any guesses really BUT I was really curious as to who it would be.

And wow! Did not disappoint. This was an absolutely lovely chapter!
Comments from author:
Thank you. I'm glad that you like the idea of them taking Legolas' mother back with them, to help her acclimatise before she gets back amongst many who think of her as their queen.

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from Oxnate
Review:
Getting near the end? Please tell me it is only the end of this story. You have centuries of time before they sailed to fill in yet, you know.

-Hoping you never stop writing,
Nate
Comments from author:
Thank you! Yes - definitely only the end of this story.

I was thinking of the century or so between 'Winter Garden' and 'Dust' the other day, oddly enough. And then there is a whole new continent to explore here... I think there are still quite a lot of stories going around in my head yet!

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from (Past Donor)Joyful
Review:
WHO IS IT????

It's Legolas' Naneth, isn't it? I understand if you don't respond because of spoilers.

It wouldn't be the elleth who used to be the Key because Tindome's never seen her picture.

Oh, I hope it's Legolas' Naneth.
Comments from author:
I am afraid I am going to leave you in suspense for a while! But I will try to get the next chapter written a little faster than this one, I promise.

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from bookworm
Review:
Hmm, who could it be...? Guess we'll find out, hopefully soonish.

I'm amused that Spike brought Lords and Ladies. I could see him being a Pratchett fan actually. Seems to fit somehow.
Comments from author:
I hope to get the next chapter done more quickly :)

I'm not sure why, but in my 'head-canon' I have always seen Spike as a Pratchett fan; I have him with a collection in 'Ten Years After', and discussing whether 'Dawn's Elves' might, in any way, resemble those of' Lords and Ladies' in 'Return of The Key'. So I'm really pleased that this seem right to you, too!

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from greysh
Review:
nice chapter :) I like how haldir is changing a little bit on this journey ^-^he needed it.
Great work!
Comments from author:
Thank you.

It has been a journey of discovery and self discovery for both of them, I hope. I'm glad you like that - although I hope he is still, recognisably, himself as well.

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
I wonder what will happen after Dagor Dagorath. I do hope that Tindomë will meet her human friends again...

Thanks for writing
Comments from author:
That may be too far in the future for me to ever write that far...

Thank you so much for reviewing - it is much appreciated.

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from LallaBelle
Review:
Brilliant chapter and even more brilliant cliffhanger.

My brain is ticking over trying to think of who it could possibly be for Tindómë to react with 'Elo!'.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I really couldn't resist the cliffhanger...

i will do my best to get the next chapter out faster than this one, though :)

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Thank you for this update. I really enjoyed Haldir's thoughts on his abilities and his realization that death was not his only gift. Haldir would make an excellent expedition leader and I hope he does get to bring other elves out into the 'hinterlands' of Valinor to explore and settle.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I an see there being discussions about who should lead expeditions, who should explore where, and so on - but Haldir certainly should get his chance. But that will be another story...

Review of chapter "Pause for Thought" from MarcusRowland
Review:
“Elo!” gasped Tindómë.

This may not be anyone she had ever met before – but she had certainly seen their portrait.


Tease!!

I do try!! :)

Review of chapter "Dust" from (Current Donor)SamuraiCatFan
Review:
Very well done. Seeing Spike's perspective of his "rehab" would be very interesting.

Really like how Dawn and Haldir are really learning to actually "hear" each other.

The meeting I really want to see is Spike and Elrond. If Elrond looks like the movies' Elrond (and I know you are quite thankfully using the books rather than those abominations of movies) I can just see Spike telling him that "he looks like that guy from the Matrix"!

Great story and series.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I will do a bit of the inside of Mandos Halls from Spike's POV at some stage - but probably as a shortish stand alone.

I really don't like Hugo Weaving as Elrond, either. 'My' Elrond doesn't have a receding hair-line, for a start!

Review of chapter "Dust" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. This was so good! So worth the wait to read until winter break :D

“Death,” he said. “Death was my gift.”
Comments from author:
**This was so good! **

Thank you so much! I promise I am writing the next chapter, between wrapping presents and baking. Enjoy your break.

Review of chapter "Dust" from Keshkreature
Review:
“Death,” he said. “Death was my gift.”

Sorta gave me shivers! :) Can't wait to see Dawn's reaction to that comment!
Comments from author:
Thank you.

Oddly that phrase probably reverberates more with us than it does with her - I don' think it was a phrase Buffy used much in front of Dawn.

Review of chapter "Dust" from AndreaH
Review:
Aha! Is her probable ability to get along with Rumil (etc's) mother another of her reasons for being there? Death isn't much of a gift for an elf, is there something else Haldir is discounting?

I haven't commented in a few chapters, but am enjoying your series (as usual) despite my silence! Thanks,
Comments from author:
I'm glad you enjoying it. And I quite agree that death as a gift for an elf is an odd choice - I promise he will say more in the next chapter.
