Review of chapter "Wolf Killer" from Swordstress
Review:
Great chapter! I felt sad for the wolves and Buffy--they would both consider the other family or pack.

Glad Buffy recognizes Glor as a romantic prospect now! What does the Elvish Glor says to her at the end mean?

Review of chapter "Wolf Killer" from grd
Review:
Wow! I was hoping that at least one of the wolves would become Buffy's companion. I wonder how her pack will change the Wolves of the North.
Comments from author:
I wrote another whole chapter about one of the wolves becoming her companion for a while, but it didn't fit as well as I had hoped, so I scrapped it, but I think I'll put it up as an outtake. Thanks for letting me know what you think.

Review of chapter "Wolf Killer" from Nightscream
Review:
ahhhh and this is the chapter in which it hits home for Buffy, the reason why immortals and mortals don't often mix. I loved the breakdown scene, it was very well written. I can't wait for the next chapter.

P.S. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. And welcome home.

Review of chapter "Wolf Killer" from AllenPitt
Review:
It's tough for immortals. But also tough on the mortals. Greatly affected culture of Gondor & others, of course. Must be weird to realize there are beings in the world that are thousands of years old, who've seen it all.
I can understand how Numenor and later others got all bent out of shape over it........and just think how weird it'd be later on (for both) for Buffy to meet distant descendants... It'd be like us meeting William the Conqueror or Julius Caesar.
Moving on: now only about 750 yrs before the Istari show up... and... I wonder if her temporary adoption of those white wolves will have any long-term effect. Not sure it will, as Sauron can corrupt just about anything if he tries hard enough..

Review of chapter "Annuminas" from (Recent Donor)ConstanceTruggle
Review:
Gracious me, I've missed a lot! Great chapters and I can't wait to see what happens next! How did Glorfindel feel about her marrying another? Perhaps he should have spoken before she left to fight. I need more, please!!!!

Review of chapter "Annuminas" from soulNchantress
Review:
I love this story.

I don't always have time to review, so I'll make this quick. While I felt this chapter was a little rushed it still had a boatload of substance. Kudos!

I don't know HOW to feel about her marriage. It would seem that after having been married before and losing both husband and children, she would chose an elf on purpose. Mainly because they (hubby and children) are guaranteed to live as long as she. I can understand ties to men, but come on. If Buffy was so uptight about sex in general, would she be so quick to throw about marriage? I guess it's safe to, though, because it's like saying, "I'll live forever if I want to, so what is a couple of decades of marriage to a human?" To me, having her marry a human, even a long lived human, is like a slap in the face. She already knows she is going to outlive them, by far, and it doesn't seem to bother her that she is giving birth to children that she KNOWS will die before she will. From what I understand, her longevity was a surprise when she married her first husband. Now she knows, it doesn't seem likely she would do it again after it hurt her so bad the first time.

Those are just my thoughts. I want to say again that I am loving your story. I think you are doing a great job of writing it. I don't notice mistakes like some stories. There are those that write so many mistakes I can't read them. You, however, are doing awesomely. So, please, don't take my opinions as an attack of your story, it is not intended that way. I just wanted to let you know what was on my mind.

Great job. I'll be watching my email for an update notice.

Thank you SoulNchangress for taking the time to explain what you think. It's a difficult situation she finds herself in. I think at this point, Buffy still considers herself more human than not, and I know I would rather be with someone I love even for a little while, than be alone for what might be thousands of years. I think most of us go through some relationships that end badly, either in death or separation, but that doesn't mean, at least in my case and in Buffy's as well that she wouldn't seek another partner, or she'd have given up after Angel, or Spike after he supposedly died the first time. Even beings like elves and vampires die, or move west, and I don't think that's a good enough reason not to form attachments. Also, a lifetime relationship, or marriage to an elf might be a bit scary for Buffy. At that point in the story, she was just beginning to understand what it would mean to be alive for a couple hundred years. Despite that, you make a very good point, and Buffy will not, or I don't think she will be marrying any more humans. I agree with you, but I think the connection to Arnor was important, and will be when Aragorn comes along. Thank you for letting me know what you think. Good review help me along.

Review of chapter "Annuminas" from JeanClaudeslover
Review:
I am enjoying this story. Especially since it's not the typical setting of the lord of rings. I like how you are making her fit in and growing.

I do hope she chooses Glorifindel though since he seems perfect for her.

Review of chapter "Annuminas" from Zechstein
Review:
Really good chapter, thanks for sharing.

The ending felt a bit rushed, but it will be interesting to see the long term consequences of this chapter. Will Buffy as the perpetual queen dowager have an influence on the civil war that destroyed Arnor in canon?

I was a bit surprised that there wasn't more resistance to Valandil's and Buffy's marriage. After all, the enthronement of Eldacar of Gondor led to a full-blown civil war because his mother wasn't of Númenórean descent.

But yeah, Buffy being Aragorn's distant ancestor as well as Legolas' older sister has the potential to be a bit awkward...
Comments from author:
Elaborate on the awkward and I'll try to avoid it, but I felt like I could use her as the person that introduces the two, and gives him another reason for spending time in Mirkwood. I agree that the ending felt a bit rushed, but I was ready to be done with that chapter. I tried to write in resistance, and maybe if I continue writing about that time period in a later chapter I'll write more in, but I think the king and Buffy ignore it. He can pretty much do what he wants, and most of the people like Buffy anyway. It would be an uphill battle to get rid of her or her children. She's kind of scary. In this case, the male blood line is still the important thing. Thanks for the comment, and I'll definitely think more about the awkward.

Review of chapter "Annuminas" from tomfo
Review:
Ok first off im gonna point out a spelling mistake, dont worry tho its the first ive seen. When you write about the speed of the wedding (with the quickness with witch the wedding was set in motion) the witch you have written should be which. Having Buffy become Aragorns ancestor is kinda funny and unexpected but a nice touch, thanks for a great chapter and I am looking forward to more hopefully soon.
Comments from author:
Thanks for mentioning the spelling mistake, I need all the help I can get with that, and I'm glad you like Buffy as ancestor to Aragorn. More soon, about half way done with the next chapter, thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Annuminas" from AllenPitt
Review:
That's going to be strange, her having descendants & kinfolk and the like. Will Aragorn wind up being distantly related? By the time of LOTR, she'll be a figure of legend.
Comments from author:
Yes, but I think it gives her more permanent ties away from the elves. I do believe that Aragorn will be her great great times fifty grandson. Thanks again for the comment.
