Oh! I loved it! I have personally never had fruitcake, mainly because the idea of it has never appealled to me. But I loved it, especially when Elrond tried to protect Estel from it. Oh, how I laughed! Great job!

Lol. *shakes head* Wow. You really don't like fruitcake, do you? I wouldn't want it either - not that kind, at least. _

I've been reading some of your fics whenever I find time and only now I'm able to finally review, heh.
I love your stories. You present a great combination of drama and humor, as well as good description and interesting plots. I'm reviewing through this story in particular because I couldn't stop laughing for like 5 minutes, and after a long day at work it was exactly what I needed. And besides, I agree wholeheartedly with this fic: Sauron himself would not eat fruitcake, and I wouldn't put it past him to have invented that thing in an attempt to poison innocent people.

thenk you for pulling me out of my horrendously grumpy mood! it made me confused at the beginning, but i figured it was something like that. very good work. i think the "i hate you"s were perfect.

Ahaha this is well amusing. It made no sense at first, i mean with the eating and Elladan's leaving and such. I figured at first that it was some sort of family tradition of cooking and that Estel was behind it. Then after the 'she' was mentioned or after Estel was cancelled out of the equation (can't quite remember which came first mind) I thought Arwen...Half expected Estel to eat those things and then be the only one able to stomach it but then that wouldnt make sense really :p
This bit is wicked funny "/One what! Never mind! Keep talking/ " I dunno why it just had me laughing out loud is all. And the reaction of the table with their plans all dashed was good too.

"A/N I do not care for fruitcake"
Gee,Pentangle, I would have never guessed! LOLOLOLOLOL! This was one giggle after another...my son came in and asked,"What is SO funny?" I had to say, "I don't know...but I'll find out at the end!" He now thinks I am certifiable.
I hate you.
(*small voice* Not really!) So Estel's cast iron stomach was not as cast iron as he thought! I had actually read this awhile back but didn't remember what was making everyone so sick! This is amazing - everyone in my family gives fruitcake a miss, too! ICK! Great - just hilarious!

Very cute :-) And until a couple of years ago, I would have sympathized completely. I hate candied fruit, and by association, I hated fruitcake.
However, you've never tried my fruitcake - it's the recipe from Regan Daley's cookbook, "In the Sweet Kitchen". Apart from a minimal amount of candied orange peel, there is no candied fruit. There are dried apricots, dried pears, dried peaches, Lexia and golden raisins, cashews, pistachios and bourbon. 'Trail mix cake' would likely be a better name for it. It rescues the dessert from its reputation. It's not just a great fruitcake, it's a great cake, period.
Loved Elladan getting his, and a lovely seasonal piece :-)

I have no idea how I missed this little gem, think it must have been when the alert system went down for a few days. Anyway, i was dying of boredom writing a uni assignment this afternoon and so was looking at my fave authors' profiles, and lo and behold I found a fic of yours I hadn't read! And what a story! I can honestly say that I do not much care for fruitcake myself and am therefore disappointed on the weeks my mum decides the cake she is to make will be a fruit one. This story made up for that! I have no idea how you do it, but once again you have pulled off a wonderful comical story around what is really a trivial subject.
Silly Estel! Always listen to your elders! I really hope he learns his lesson- everyone has a weakness that can break through an iron stomach. And Elladan is very crafty, glad Elrohir and Legolas got their revenge, so beautifully simple too ;)
Loved it all. The compliments that weren't too encouraging, the usual way in which Estel alwys puts his foot in it... just fab!
Thank god that there is always some happiness to be found amongst the pain of uni work!
