|Reviews for The Eight Companions: A battle for an Elf's sanity|

I think there is a problem with the formatting: almost the whole chapter is in italics.

Very creatively and imaginatively written :) And now we have an almost credible explanation for Tolkien's 2 Legolas's :)

Very amusing. I'm glad to see an anti Mary-Sue tale that includes highly obscure plot points from the 1st age. It seems to me that some of the anti Mary-Sue tales are not actually much better than the stories they deplore. Not most of them, but some seem excessively like the Mary-Sues. This one was nicely done.

**Gulps** Y'know that's scary enopugh to put me off writing mary sues forever... not that I write them. But wow! Well writen! Go you! **Claps** It was excelently writen! 100% well done. And I'm repeating myself...

Aw, it's really good. (“It is indeed a clever plan. We shall be the Eight Seekers, and we shall not rest until we have gained multi-age personas!” Celegorm said. Fëanor looked at him. “Or, barring that retrieved the Silmarils and Father’s gem.”!) Really, really good. Go Maedhros and Glorfindel!

“Leave Leggy alone, you dirty old man! He’s not like that! You’re not like that!”
Oh, that line was priceless. I love it. Poor Legolas, hauled against his will from peace and quiet to fulfill the whims of Mary-Sues! I love the desperate excuses the characters have to think up; Glorfindel describing the battle with the balrog as a lover's tiff, Legolas having to pretend that he's in love with Elladan (and Elladan's reaction!).

I so completely enjoyed this story. Few people on this site seem to be able to write really good humour fic's, this is exceptional. You must have the silmarillion commited to memory, you are so knowledgable and capture the true natures of the large cast you have assembled. The thread of the "disco ball" through out the story was real inspiration. And oh my word they are stuck with it forever.(lol)
There are too many wonderful lines in this piece for me to list all that had me laughing, but one true statement you made is "...as fangirls...desire to write checked by hormones and the stunning possibilities of Eomer, Haldir & Faramir romances..." it has already begun, poor Haldir, I fear, will need to avail himself of Legolas' solution.(What the heck was Peter Jackson thinking?)
Thank you for a wonderful read. smk
| LasseLanta01 chapter 2 . 1/10/2003
Well I have to tell you this chapter really made my day, I haven't laughed so hard in quite a while. The image of Caranthir chastising Celegorm for being overly picky about appearance nearly had me falling out of my seat. "Get a feminine form" is priceless.
I can't think of a thing to tell you to improvc this, as it is already perfect.
Thank you for your review, it was very sweet. I can't wait to find time to read chapter three and see the fall out from this wonderful action.
Eru bless you, smk

Hah! Caranthir flamed! I just had this strange thought involving the Feanorions joining the PPC..I'm sure they'd have fun.
I love the idea of Celegorm getting plastered. I'm also looking forward to Feanor's reaction when he realizes what he's done.
Poor, poor Maedhros. I do believe he's stumbled into a Silmficcer's slashfic.
| Caporal chapter 1 . 1/9/2003
LOL! This is one of the most hilarious things I have ever read. I have a passion for Silm humour, and there's definitly not enough of it out there.
Trust Feanor to invent the disco ball.
| Phoenix Flight chapter 3 . 1/2/2003
The sons of Feanor become the new eight companions! I can just imagine it. Perhaps someday someone will write it, too.
Great story! I loved what the elves do to escape the summonings! My favorite has to be the one where Legolas says that he joined the fellowship because he was in love with Sauron.
I wonder what the elves thought of this particular summoning...
| Wild Iris chapter 3 . 12/27/2002
Ah, wonderful fun at the finish! The Valar saddled with kitsch glam, the Feanorians about to unleash chaos across realities, and poor Legolas, after a moment of relief, firmly in Morgoth's eye once more... Some lovely lyrical moments, too, alongside the comedy; the description of the tapestries was fascinating.
If we can't hear about the Eight Seekers, how about Legolas' life as an Elf of Gondolin? I can just see him amid the heroics of the First Age...
| Ithilwen of Himring chapter 3 . 12/23/2002
And so it ends. The Valar get posession of Feanor's last and greatest creation, the disco ball, Legolas (now an Elf of Gondolin) is at least temporarily safe from his legions of hormonally-crazed fanauthors, Elrond gets a sublime moment of revenge, and the Feanorians set off on a mad quest to see if they, too, may escape the clutches of the dreaded Silmficcers. All's well that ends well - and this fic ends marvellously! I hope you consider writing more humor pieces; you have a gift for it.
| Mal3m chapter 3 . 12/23/2002
This is hilarious. I love humorous Silmarillion fics! This so well-written and funny-I really enjoyed it :)
| jillian baade chapter 3 . 12/20/2002
LOL the Valar have to put up with the Disco Ball for all time!
this was very funny, and I throughly enjoyed it, but am disappointed you won't write the story of the Feanorians and their quest. You write those naughty elves well, their characters are distinct and believable. Please re-consider writing the follow on. I'll beg if it helps!
