He-he, this reminds me of situations in comedy-movies. :) Nicely done.



Author's Response:

Thank you, I'm pleased this made you laugh. It was inspired by a neighbour's cat walking across a cupboard full of glasses!

Ha-ha, terrified Aragorn! :) Nicely done. :)

 

I wasn't in panic on my wedding (in fact, I was relatively relaxed), but I have to admit that I don't remember much of what the registrar was talking about - I was a little nervous in those particular moments! :)

Very interesting opening chapter. :) I am hurrying to read what happened next.

P.s. Is the cat you mention the one from "Good King of Cats"? :)



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review.Yes, that is the cat!

I read this story "in one breath", as we say in Croatian. And now I can't wait for more! I like your background story about origin of dragons and that they are not evil, but that some were corrupted by Morgoth. I hope the people of Gondor will learn that soon.

I hope you'll update soon. :)



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review.I'm pleased you are enjoying my story. The background for the dragons for a good idea of Raksha's. I like your "one breath" expression. I have all the story drafted out so hope to post more soon.

Date: 10/22/10 Title: Chapter 6: Steeped to the lips in misery

Yay, finally an update! :)

I love this chapter. I can very easily imagine Tarostar and his prejudices; no wonder Aragorn lost his patience in the beginning. I also like very much that you introduced a healer from Rohan. And yes, I like the humoristic moment about dragon and entire supply of poppy juice. :p

I hope we won't wait long for another chapter. *sweet puppy look*



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review .I'm pleased you are enjoying the story and liked the touches of humour in this chapter. The next one is already drafted and knowing you want to read it will help motivate me to get it polished.

This is really becoming more and more complicated. I hope that people will soon realize the truth.

Great and tense chapter, especially towards the end. Update soon, please!



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review. I promise you that the story will get more complicated yet! I'm pleased that you enjoyed this chapter.

Wonderful chapter! I am sure Arwen will see the thruth soon. And now I can't wait to see what happens next! Seems like the bundle is important. *impatient* *curious*



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review.I'm so pleased you enjoyed this chapter.All will be revealed about the bundle in the next chapter!

Thank you, dear friend! *hugs* I like the chapter (edited or not), and I am very much looking forward to the moment when the rider will wake up. What a talk between him and Aragorn it will be!

In the meantime, it would be nice to see the meeting between Sulion and Arwen. :)

Date: 03/05/11 Title: Chapter 11: Let not the sun go down upon your wrath

Oh, poor Sulion. :( The end is so sad. :(

You made things really complicated. Now I am very curious to see how you'll solve things with Arwen and how she'll see the true Sulion's nature.



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review.I'm so pleased you enjoyed this chapter.I fear things will get worse before they get better!

Oh. :(

But I am still hoping that Fu Nung will somehow survive, that some cure will be found...



Author's Response:

All will be revealed whether he lives or dies in the next chapter. Many thanks for your review.

Date: 06/19/11 Title: Chapter 14: To perceive the words of understanding

First, a typo. ;) "I thought if I knew the simple phases..." and "...and Faramir also mastered a few phases..." I believe you mean "phrases".

Second, the chapter text is doubled. That probably happened because of troubles with the browser that you had mentioned before. Maybe Michele can fix it, if your browser doesn't listen to you?

And last, but not least, I love this! I am so happy Fu Nung is getting better. :) I can't wait to see when they will be finally able to have a real talk. :) And also, I can't wait to see the new meeting between Sulion and Arwen and Eowyn!



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review and for pointing out the errors, which I've fixed. This chapter seems jinxed as Ialmost lost the last third and Aragorn's Chinese is bad enough to scare people who understand it!
 I'm pleased you enjoyed the chapter. There is still lots of angst in store for our heroes.

Date: 07/04/11 Title: Chapter 15: Betrayed, betrayed!

Oh, I am *sure* that Faramir and Aragorn are wrong. :) I have a feeling that the visit of those new dragons will turn out into a pleasant surprise.

All will soon be revealed! Many thanks for your much appreciated review.

Oh! I have to say that the end completely surprised me!

<I>"Really?" Aragorn could not hide the scepticism in his voice.
"Well, your line has a Maia for an ancestress," Faramir reminded him.</I>

*lol* Perfect detail! *giggles*



Author's Response:

Many thanks for your much appreciated review.I'm pleased I still manage to surprise you and make you laugh.
