| RangeroftheSouth chapter 60 . 4/10
So, i didn't comment on every chapter because i was too busy dying to read the next one and I'm torn between sadness and utter glee at the moment. I have never experienced reading a fic quite like this and i have to tell you that this has been two of THE BEST, fics I've ever read! I don't have enough words to express how much i laughed, cried and had utter momemts of complete despair and horror when reading about the Plennor and of Penny's homesickness and Halbarad and Hirvell's death or Lindir and Eleniel's lost loves and Arwen's departure to a mortal life. You wrote everything so honestly and beautifully and with such skill and humour and aaaahh! I just loved every moment of this fic
Halbarad is one of my favourite characters. Hands down. And so is Halladan and Penny. Oh how i love Penny, you managed to describe a pretty accruate and terrifying idea of what would happen to an average fan.. AND IT WAS ENTIRELY BRILLIANT!
Her grief and sorrow and loss and guilt was so palpable and moving, truly it was. She is one of my favourite characters ever! I enjoyed everything about Rohan and Gondor and especially the chapters revolving around the elves bidding Arwen farewell, that's been such a haunting bit for me, i enjoyed reading your characterisation of her and of Galadriel and Glorfindel and i especially love Lindir and Celebor and Mireth and Eleniel! They're all so wonderful and witty. One thing that has stood out is Penny's obseravtions of the war, the Plennor and the wounds that soldiers are left with, you did it justice. That sense of utter despair and hopelessness and wonder of how something so unspeakably terrible could happen is all the more palpable in this current time. Which probably has nothing to do with the fic, but i found it to be so moving and distressing, but this fic has made me tear up because of how these characters have reacted and what they feel and how they carry on
I could probably go on for sometime about this. Halbarad and Penny's anchoring relationship with him was amazing to read, it was so well written and when he died and when Penny went mt to his grave i just couldn't take it. You have written it all so excellently
The tradtions of the elves and the Gondorians and the Rohirrim were mesmerising to read about, you captured them wonderfully.
OH AND RHIMLATH how could i forget about sassy, smart and wondefully obnoxious Rhimlath!? He was so bloody brilliant to read so witty and stern and utterly hilarious
I can't pick out a favourite moment, because everything from penny dancing with the elves on the wedding day to Halladan storming into the room to admit he loves her has been quite the experience
Also! ALSO! NEVER before have i been so invested in a romance plot. Halladan is sk frustrating i felt like reaching through and throttling him myself! He's definetly of the old stock, but he's willful and hilarious and so well rounded as a character and i just loved and loathed the last few chapters. I loveee how penny and him found each other in the camp and in gondor. Their friendship was spectacular and their romance even more so. Ihad butterflies in my stomach reading chapters 50-60 especially chapter 59...i just... His confession and that entire scene was so fluffy and romamtic and full of tension and i loved it! They're so stubborn that they make the mountains jealous. Really, more than once i wamted to clout them over the heads but I'm ever so completely delighted at their ending! OH IT WAS WONDERFUL
Also Penny, Mireth, Eleniel, Lindir and Celebdor are mt new favourite gang of mischvious friends and it makes me so very sad to say goodbye to them.
All that being said, thank you for writing this fic and for Don't Panic. As a fellow fan who dreamed of falling into ME, this was amazingly fantastix and real and utterly heartwrenching to read. Travelling with penny and feeling what she felt and seeing her mature and develop was an experience
14 year old me is doing a lil jig within me of pure exhilration rn! This story was brilliant, excelltnly written and left me wanting to read more and more and more and i could go on for ages about every single little detail from almost every chapter
So thank you! This was trauma at the hands of a fic... And it was worthwhile

Hugs to you too, Boz. You have done well!
i still recommend it to all my children's teenaged friends who are catching the writing bug for the first time.
May God bless you in all the years ahead.
Love from EVA

Oh that's one of my favourite songs!
(and one I would have chosen in a similar situation too)
I love your story!

"We know it would have been 'Lô-' or 'Loho-' something (as would have been 'Eowyn's name) since that corresponds to the OE 'Eo-' meaning 'horse'."
Interesting. The Hungarian word for horse is 'ló'.

It's currently 01:26AM and it's the second time I've read this fic (and Don't Panic! also, of course). Even though you may never read this, I just felt I couldn't leave without a review this time (last time i had no WORDS). Thank you for publishing this and for coming up with such a creative, well written, funny and beautiful story!

What a scary chapter! Personally, I am afraid of heights, no matter whether I stand on concrete or wood. (Airplanes or ok, though, surprisingly).
Anyway, I think the description of vertigo and panic was very good.

So I just spent the last two months reading this. Slowly savouring it, soaking it all up. It was wonderful. ️ I hope you’re well, wherever you are.
| Fealiniel chapter 60 . 11/4/2020
Ooph I can hardly believe it's over.. i have spent every waking hour (and then some) in the last couple days reading and thinking about this fic. I have laughed i have cried, I have sat in the dark smiling like a fool into my phone! Every goal you have claimed in the author's notes was wonderfully achieved in every way, I love this story and I can already tell it is one I will come back to re-read time and time again. thank you so much for your effort and dedication to this fic

Oh i forgot ti mention that it might be a popular trait of Mary Sues to not miss or think of their families and friends a lot. If we Think realistically, could someone like us possibly stay there or think about it in just a few months? Why is she not trying to go back? Would that not be our mission? I know i would miss my "earth", our planet without elves is still magnificent and we barely know anything about her past relations or whatsover as if avoiding it on purpose. Why? Maybe it is just me bit i could not stay somewhere when i am on my own and have people and a home waiting for me as much of a excitement it would be to step into middle earth. Besides wouldn't the elves come across as unnatural and eerily? Perfect things musnt automatically be attractive...humans dont tend to be attracted by perfection cause it is not what defines us. We try to be perfect but we are not...ok enough rambling haha.

Ok, it does sound like u favor the ppl of middle earth far more than our ownxD
And i know a lot of ppl who are serious at the right time and quite some who are not, plus you have to take into consideration that if we were to live at the times of war like (WW1 or WW2) we would be a lot more serious. Ppl back then were a lot more serious or behaved accordingly.
Still i enjoy reading ur story very much, even tho i do not agree with everything.
Plus could u explain why it is supposed to be the same earth we are living on just on another timeline? It piqued my interest and i dont get the hang of it. What happened to millions of years of evolution? To our past? Did they fought against Morgoth? Will they still fight with modern humans together? How can she know that she is from the future and not another planet?
