Your right, the bit with the MIRROR was ABSOLUTELY unforgiveable. I had to look away. ;-) I liked G's reaction.
I'm now off to read SoS. Hey, look ast what the initials spell!

Evil! Poor Leggy! Loved 'You look terrible,' too; ironic that it was directed at Legolas. I'm assuming you sttole it from TT.

'Not to mention deadly over short distances.' Wicked!
I really love your balance of the original LotR and Bond; your story seens to have a sense of humour about itself without ever slipping into outright parody, which is quite an achievment!
I know I shouldn't be talking about your story as if it has it's own personality, but ho-hum.

Excellent finish! Loved the action. Very crisp. And Shadowfax, marvellous. I did enjoy the MIRROR communication too. A nice touch. Cheesy endings make me smile! After all, we are talking a semi-parodic crossover between two fantastic worlds.
Glad you're enjoying Colonel Sun - I have read but not liked some of the other "007" novels that are on the market; but that one truly seems like an extension of the spirit of Fleming.
Can't wait for Span of Solace. The teaser was just too much!

Yes. You did it... I mean, they did it :-)
So, Saruman will be hunting Legolas down soon...
BTW, how about a short visit back in the neibourghing Universe? ;)
I'm still into it, you know...

This has got to be one of the most clever (sort of) crossovers I have ever read. Your humor is perfectly mixed with the action and adventure. I love it.

-should have expected the nazgul to show up
hn, last one for this story too..
but there's going to be a new latest adventure of greenleaf

So it took me a week to review... I was busy torturing my husband with the Peter Sellers Casino Royale. Muahaha. Doesn't get much more evil than that.
Speaking of evil - I did have trouble picturing Sauron going mano e mano with Legolas. I thought Sauron would be bigger... er... if you see what I mean. Still, it was a good long fight, nicely choreographed and with a solid role for the lava of Mount Doom as is only good and proper.
If Sauron is actually dead dead, then I'm guessing we're headed into solidly (even more!) AU territory after this? I shall wait with bated breath.

...few bits of metal still floating on top...
How poetic :)
And, of course, Saruman will survive... such a nice domesticated devil ;)
| theinklesspen chapter 14 . 6/18/2004
[gasp][gasp] sauron has dissolved into magma!
hm, i am wondering-does this necessarily mean sauron's rule is over?
| Idlewild chapter 13 . 6/8/2004
I was wondering when you mentioned Casino Royale if you were going to go for the carpet beater treatment. Is it just me or was description of the physical torture in that book seriously more hardcore than in later books? I forgot about the carving bit -though if I recall correctly (and we -are- talking at least 10 years since I read Casino Royale (for shame!)) the scar is never, ever mentioned again as an identifying mark.
Yes I was right! Good thing too, old Sharky's too tough to just up and be killed by a fool Elf.
With regard to the passage where Saruman is discussing methods of torture, if you haven't read it you should read Colonel Sun which is not by Fleming (oh, heresy!) but entertainingly enough by Kingsley Amis writing under the name of Robert Markham. It's got some lovely sadistic bits. Amis was everso academic about Fleming and then went off and did a fantastic job of a pastiche. (Which gives you something in common with Kingsley Amis I guess, which may or may not be a good thing?)
A little short for an orc. Priceless.
| Nemo Returning chapter 13 . 6/7/2004
Now, that was quite a short cut in the plot...
| theinklesspen chapter 13 . 6/7/2004
aha! saruman it was.
wonder what sauron is going to do to saruman now that he let legolas escape
saruman is quite sick.
| Nemo Returning chapter 12 . 6/3/2004
What's all the fuss about? Some old-fashioned tanks? :-))
Oh, and my guess is Saruman (death to all cliffhangers!)
| theinklesspen chapter 12 . 6/3/2004
the orcs were funny this time
