|Reviews for Daughter of Laurëfin|

I read through the whole thing! No, I don't think Elwen's a Mary-Sue, yes, you captured everything correctly, it's practically flawless. People like to make assumptions about girls who write Legolas romances, and it is not always true. Not all of the girls have hearts in their eyes when they look at Bloom, you simply like the character and think he deserves a nice girl! Please finish!

Ok. I've read the story, and I've read the reviews. To be honest, from reading the reviews I was getting kinda sick with all the messages you were getting, as either they were TOO good or TOO bad. However, there were indeed a few that shuffled towards "Constructive Critique".
Here is my honest opinion, and no it is not a flame.
1: Elwen. Yes, I agree with the whole "Elves are perfect" thing, and yes I agree that her name is perfectly fine the way it is (though it may be a LITTLE bit overused).
2: Falling in Love. Yes, I agree it was a little fast for them, but you ARE the author and this is so it is okay. Sure they are Elves and sure they are immortal, but if they truly love someone you'd want to get married to them quick-smart before someone else steals him/her away.
3: Mary Sue-ness. Please, Elwen is not a Mary Sue. She is an Elf. However, she does seem to have two faces, as in the first few chapters you presented her as someone who is meek and shy, but when she shows up in Helm's Deep it's like WOAH. I like the way you have added a theory on why Legolas missed.
4: Use of Elvish. I, in all honesty, rather enjoy the use of Sindarin/Quenya as I find it to be a very beautiful language, and I wish that some authors would use it more often. The fact that you also provide translations is nice for those of us who are not as literate in the uses of Elvish as you are. :)
5: Flames. As I was sifting through all the reviews you have received for this fic, I have not once stumbled upon the legendary 'Flare' and 'Lady Phedre'. I believe Lady Phedre might have changed into La Sontilla (pardon the spelling if it is wrong), and if this is so I would not consider that review a flame.
I too have received flames on some of my Redwall fics, and I know that it is rather hurtful when you receive one. However, most times it is better to just ignore this, and if the flame really got your goat, write the response to the flamer in your AN and let it stew there for a few days.
After a few days, you should be able to delete it with no hard feelings, as you would have realised that flamers are just dirty rotten low lifes with nothing better to do.
Apart from that, I did get the impression that you are 'milking' the sympathy from the reviewers as much as possible. Since I have not encountered Flare or Lady Phedre's reviews, I cannot make an honest opinion on whether or not the tears were in actuality called for.
However, this is a good fiction and you do have immense potential as a writer. Yalúmessë was a work of genius, and I was not disappointed with Daughter of Laurëfin.
I suggest toning down the responses to flamers, and apart from that I think it is fine as it is. Not every fanfiction is perfect, and not every FanFic author is either. We're only human.

| Robyn chapter 14 . 4/12/2005
Holy cow! That was the BEST Legomance I have ever read! Please update.

How entertaining! I love it! Don't worry about the flames...it's called fanfiction because it's fiction, I don't see why you should be getting any. It's your imagination...if they don't like it, they don't have to read it.

Not very good. You know, you don't have to follow the movies. Tolkien left some room for creativity in other places in his works. Enough with the Legolas-crushing and Mary-Sueing!
