This was absolutely hilarious. I love this view of the Undying Lands, and I hope this is how Gimli did indeed get on! It's much more to his tastes than sitting around contemplating life.

Dilithium? Very very good. Thanks for giving me a giggle or three.
| mthespinner 5/20/10 . chapter 2
Oh this is the best! Di-lithum-and Murphe as well. More please?
| The Painted Lady 11/5/08 . chapter 1
Ha! Dilithium crystals and duct tape get them to Valinor. This is so deranged and nutz that I love it!
| T'Kath 6/22/08 . chapter 2
Oh - please continue.. *lol* cant wait to read more of Gimli and those two ingenious elves.
"The swiftest reembodiment in Elven history" that really sent me down laughing.
Great stuff and good reading - thanks for it,
| Beth 2/14/08 . chapter 2
This is stinkin' hilarious!
| PEF 10/1/06 . chapter 1
Di-lithûm. That alone nearly had my falling off my chair laughing. :D Brilliant stuff.
| HRT 9/25/06 . chapter 2
I thought this was one of the more thoughtful and well-crafted pieces I've come across in some time. Many authors shy away from tackling either Valinor or the old age of any of the Fellowship, and this was a pleasure to read.

The funniest thing I have read in a long long while, Thankyou from the bottom of my heart! I know no one seems to have left a review recently, so I just thought I'd say that everything about this story rings true, the characterisations are simply brilliant and any subtle (or not so subtle) humour you choose to put in works fantastically. Highlights have to include Gimli's Star Trek impression and his companion's woeful boatbuilding skills.
Orvelos and Wilburae - the creations of a genius. In addition to their famous flying counterparts, these two obsessive elves also bring to mind the story of the mice, Orville and Wilbur, who built a flying basket. No idea if you've ever heard of this children's book or not, it was a favourite when I was little.
Please keep writing, can't wait to see what happens next!

"And all that business about reflecting upon your life-it’s not like I ever got up to much. About all I had to talk about was the boat.”"
Oh, my. This is truly delicious! Keep up the good work! I'm loving this unique and original story! _
| Christine Fraser 10/31/05 . chapter 2
I love your stories. This one in particular made me laugh. The whole gag around Wilbrae and Orvelos not "being popular" is so good. And then Legolas happy to get out of the house once in a while.
Very very good and I look forward to more.
| Goddess of Idun 10/27/05 . chapter 2
'twas very funny, especially when wilburaë was blown to mandos.
| jilian baade 4/28/05 . chapter 2
Ok, so the Dwarves had Dilithium. That is so funny! As is Legolas playing Maeglin for the benefit of his kids, and Gimli's remark about the Valar being arse deep in Elves.
Will the 3 inventors ever get their sail-less boat going?
| Artemis1000 4/4/05 . chapter 2
This so so funny and sweet, I love it!
The part with the kids hanging from Gimli's bard was just hilarious!
| JunoMagic 10/26/04 . chapter 2
"I wasn’t popular there, either!" - oh my, I laughed out loud. This is such a funny, original story! You don't really mean to leave it these two chapters, do you?
I would really like to read more. It's so rare to find a Gimli/Legolas story that is not strange or completely silly, but charming, witty and full of real humour.
