I'm sure Mary Sue was like "oh shit"! XDD Great story
| Numbuh six-sixtysix 4/16/10 . chapter 8
How could she? I mean, HOW could she pervert the two most innocent characters in the Lord of the Rings, by explaining what slash was? The poor things will probably have nightmares for months. After they stop living their own nightmare first, of course.

Wait, so what, because she is named Mary Sue, she occasionally gets dropped off in fandoms she is involved with, as a Mary Sue? And is, apparently, expected to fall in love with at least one main character? Damn, if I was named Gary Stu, I'd be getting as much fandom material as possible. I'd also be a wilderness-survival-master who never went anywhere without a bergen full of equipment/supplies, and combats with more of the same. So, real life would screw me over, but at least the fandoms wouldn't kill me.

Great laugh! Always great to stumble across the PPC as well :D
| Makayla 8/3/08 . chapter 11
This was really funny XD THe chapters were a little short but good all the same. I hope Mary Sue gets home to see her kid!

Very enjoyable story!
| Rainstorm Amaya Arianrhod 6/29/06 . chapter 11
Ha! Hilarious! The best LOTR fanfic I've ever read, and the only one on my favourites.
| ArmelleMadeline 2/7/04 . chapter 11
Lol. I loved it. Envisioning Mary Sue in the PPC- but what about her kid? And ooh. If she's in the PPC, and investigating Mary Sues, surely they'd be flashbacks to her past which hadn't happened yet, but does, a la Donny Darko. I just saw it. yay. *smile*
But anyway- cool.

| Nienna Clear-Light 6/26/03 . chapter 11
Wow. The profanity was a little much - in my opinion - but this was an otherwise extrodinarily well done story. Keep up the writing!
| Tar Irene 3/4/03 . chapter 11

I love reading the well-written LOTR parody, and yours is definitely one of them. It's funny, feisty, crass, and- best yet- **to the point!** You do not go off on any pointless tangents; your language flows; and each chapter has a punch to it. The dialogue is convincing, and I like how you dropped Mary Sue (who is, thankfully, a loud-mouthed working-class single mom) into Mordor, which is pleasantly novel (not to mention that it provides much opportunities for dark humor). The scene where she needs to relieve herself is priceless. She uses a rock- OUCH!
I do hope you can finish this. With Mary Sue now in the PPC, this story is just *begging* for a sequel! So- keep up the good work, and don't get discouraged, though I know how hard it can be, when the reviews aren't coming. But finding the occasional semi-precious stone- like this- within the enormous midden that is makes the digging all the more worthwhile (in fact, it almost excuses the fact I should be working on my classwork right now).
A story you will definitely enjoy: "I, Grusbalk" by Simbelmyne. A Mary-Sue is dropped into ME and is turned into an orc, of all things. It's very funny.
And if you like, stop by and review, "Not Worth More than Rubies," which is my own First Serious Attempt at a LOTR fanfic. (A jewel thief comes to Rohan and clashes with Grima; lots of backstabbing, intrigue, and double-entendres. Sort of like Oscar Wilde meets Middle-Earth.)
