Reviews for The Hematic

I wish you could update this gem at least once a year
Auralia of SZZX chapter 38 . 10/3
It's such a well designed story that I could not imagine that you could cease writing it! A great story should be irresistible to both readers and the author! So please continue!

Still patiently waiting for an update! :)

Your explanation of Lucy was perfect. She’s an unsettling character to read because she doesn’t fit into our clichés and stereotypes about women and this type of story in fandom. I like that she’s irrational, petty, and incredibly self absorbed. I also kind of hate her for being such a terrible flawed and mean human being. She’s exasperating but also magnetic and somewhat charismatic. Her neuroses and actions, while seemingly contradictory, are entirely consistent in your writing. I love it. I’ve rarely seen such an interesting character. You don’t make her do irrational out of character things simply for the entertainment value of “randomness”. She does irrational things because she has a flawed conception of reality and is really quite childlike in many ways. You give an extraordinary amount of depth to almost all the characters in your story, or at least hint at the histories they have. It makes the world you’ve built more realistic. Gives it a texture and flavor.

I’m sure you write original stories somewhere. If you do, let me know! I’d love to read more of your style. I’ve already added some of your other fanfic stories to my future reading list.

Omg so creepy and so entrancing at the same time. Definitely worth losing sleep over.
Doll-Fin-Chick chapter 13 . 9/5
Wow this is good. Not sure why I haven’t stumbled on this before because OC inserts are a favorite of mine. Actually found this linked on a thread of other’s recommended stories.

I don’t usually leave reviews before I finish a story but I had to for this one. I’ve been reading it all day and I think I just may stay up all night to finish if I have to. I think it deserves way more reviews than it has! It’s such a skillful blend of words and imagery. I’m going to have to see if you’ve written other stuff because I’m spellbound by your writing.

I love how dark it is, but also Lucy as a character is just fascinating. She’s both repellant and also familiar. She’s not a nice person but you still get us to feel sympathetic for her. Weaving horror and mystery through something as mythical as Middle-Earth is not something I often see. Bravo.

I am so going to buy the Fall of Gondolin when I get a chance. Idk if you know it’s recently been released...And your story makes me more curious and excited to read it.

To the author of this story: I just wanted to take some time and say thank you for writing this tale. This is really hard for me, but I recently lost my sister to cancer after a terrible battle. She loved reading anything she could get her hands on - books, fan fiction, what have you. We’ve been huge huge Tolkien fans since we were children (our first time reading all the books we did it aloud to each other and had some hilarious pronunciations of all the names and places) - and being involved in the fandom was one of the ways that we bonded. Even when she was sick, some of the times she was cheeriest was when we would browse LOTR/Silmarillion fanart or when I would find new fic about our favorite characters for us to read and take her mind off things. After she passed, one of the things I’ve been doing is to try and let some authors know that their works touched the hearts of people out there. My sister and I really loved The Hematic - we hadn’t read a Tolkien story that had been so painstakingly written and with such an intricate plot in a long time. We always had a lot of fun brainstorming about what was coming next, and about how unique your characterization of our favorite elves were. Even though this story may be just a hobby or something you do for fun, I wanted to let you know what it meant to two people who needed to focus on something other than a damn hospital room. So thank you, for writing something that let her travel to Middle Earth for a while when she needed to the most.

Why do you say that a Glorfindel isn't as angelic as he appears to be? He seems to be hopelessly in love with Lucy! Could you describe his unangelic side (I know that's not a word) a bit more? Just to clarify his thought process.

update on the way?
daughterofthechief chapter 38 . 3/18
Agh this is such an amazing ff-a really well written story and one of the better I’ve come across on this site. I especially like the relationship between Glorfindel and Lucy when he’s possessive/jealous lmao (I know its cliche). Maybe you could also write any Feanorian/OFC (preferbly Maedhros/OFC as he is such a tragic and morally ambiguous character)or Feanor/Nerdanel ff as I think you’d capture their relationship really well. See, I don't really like Lucy and her obsession with kids but I guess it's testament to your ability as an author as I still want to read more despite disliking the protagonist. I know its been a really long time since you’ve updated and probably won’t see this but if you do, please update-you have such talent and it would be a shame not to continue. Pplz plz update xxx

Guest chapter 38 . 1/30
I am so in love with this story. I look everyday, hoping to see if you have posted a new chapter. I never leave reviews but this amazing and beautiful work derserves praise. I adore that Lucy is flawed and brings so much more life until the whole "lady magically gets transported into ME".
This story is unlike anything I have ever read before and I am just as committed as I was two years ago.
I am in love with your style and will happily buy any book you may publish.
Please do not give up. I am more impatient for an update on Lucy and Glorfindel then G.R.R. Martin's Winds of Winter.
Update soon!
