Good job, but I thought her name was Tauriel, not Tinuviel. Either way, I liked how you called "pee-jay" a seems right.

Another one of your stories that I had to come back and save to my favourites now that I have an account!
All the comments made in my previous review as Sarah hold true but now I can add that my mother wholeheartedly agrees with you and I about the travesty committed by PJ with the characters - especially poor Thranduil! Our thanks again for correcting that very grave offense. :)

This is absolutely brilliant. xD Kudos to you for writing and sharing this!
| Foggy chapter 1 . 1/6
After watching the third film this story was exactly what I needed.
So: Thank you, thank you, thank you!
| Sarah chapter 1 . 1/3
That was definitely an entertaining read! :D
I loathed how they mutilated the character of Thranduil (even though Lee Pace did a brilliant job with his portrayal of the elven king), plus the introduction of that accursed female elf made no sense at all and was completely unnecessary.
As for the nonsense of a love-triangle between two elves and a dwarf and Thranduil apparently looking down on Silvan elves, that's got to be the biggest bunch of tripe and the most ridiculous things done in the movies.
Thank you also for pointing out the stupidity of putting the wood elves in heavy armour - if Legolas survived all of LOTR in just a tunic and hose why the hell put an army of elves in armour so heavy it would naturally inhibit their movements?
Seriously, this piece was a brilliant read and I just wish that true Tolkien fans outnumbered the 12yr old mind set of fan girls that seem to be flooding the internet at the moment. Their 'poor Legolas having a hateful father' and 'Kili/Tauriel 4eva' comments have me wishing Smaug would pay them a visit.

Poor, poor Legolas is never going to catch a break from the dreaded Mary Sue character. Indeed, she warps reality around her, making the Elves looks like evil's incarnates so that she could look good compared to them.
Honestly, I hated the 2nd movie with a passion when I saw it, or at least hated the major part of it because my expectations were cruelly dashed. But time has passed, I've calmed down, and now I see both the second and the third movies as terrible PJ fanfiction. I just cannot muster up any anger anymore. I no longer care and simply laugh like crazy when I see his 'interpretation' of the story. What amazes me is that he can't see just how ridiculous it all is, how progressively dumb the characters had to become so that the plot could be dragged longer. And the majority of viewers are praising it! How?...
Anyway, thank you so much for writing and sharing this little gem with us!

That she-devil annoys me so much! Your fic was very therapeutic. Thanks for writing!
| Bonnygirl10 chapter 1 . 8/7/2014
Hahaha omg this is brilliant!
I love it; the Mary-Sue's infecting the whole of Middle Earth, Pee Jay being our own beloved P.J!
Great job, and poor Legolas, he is always getting the brunt of those nasty Mary-Sues!

Ahh, what a gem of a fic. And what a delight to coincidentally read right after watching the TH3 trailer for the first time. Thank you for warding off a foul-induced mood and producing quite a few hardy laughs. They were very much needed. As an ending note, your characterization of Thranduil has to be among my favorites, and even the reigning winner. And finally a story where reading of Galadriel can be stomached. Very well written all around.

HAHA absolutely brilliant! Couldn't agree more.

I LOVE YOU
| Ruusaanyc chapter 1 . 5/3/2014
My thoughts exactly! I was just trying to explain those problems to someone the other day. I was so disappointed by the Mirkwood scenes. I was hoping Thranduil's moose in the first movie would be the end of the absurdity. :-( Plus the dwarf costumes... why do none of the dwarves who are actually important to the plot look anything like dwarves? Beardless dwarves, blech.

Lamiel, so hilarious and spot on! Pee-Jay does play dreadfully with the original stories. Good for you to not let him get away with it. And I'm delighted to see that you are still here writing. I've been away far too long, but making plans for a return. I've missed this world.

I definitely agree that there are things wrong with portrayals in the hobbit movie but the LOTR too. I loved this way of depicting the mistakes. Although I must say that I think that PJ probably did a better job than many directors would in sticking to the books. But some things should never be added!
| Vanessa chapter 1 . 4/8/2014
Oh my gosh. I wish someone would show this to Pee-Jay so that he would understand what a mess he made of Mirkwood and everyone living therein. Although nothing bugs me as much as Tauriel. I mean, I don't mind a female character, but really...? Let me count the ways. She has flaming red hair. Check. Legolas is supposedly madly in love with her, so much so that he starts behaving like an idiot. Check. She is so super awesome, that even the Dwarves can't resist her. Check. Her archery skills are so off the chain, that she, and not the Prince of the realm who happens to be one of the best archers in Middle-Earth, is Captain of the archers. Check. But she is not a Mary Sue. Oh no.
I hope she dies terribly in the next movie. End rant.
