In 'The War of the Jewels' it says that Alatar and Pallando (the blue wizards) were sent early, and that their purpose was to fix the Morgoth-worshipping in the east.

Though this story is a solid 20 years old... I still feel the need to review.
Penny's story... *chefs kiss*
The entirety of her journey has been so amazing to read though, and I easily say it is the best fan-fiction I have ever read. The realism of the adjustment to her new reality is something most AU fanfictions are extremely lacking, and you captured it PERFECTLY. Every step of the way has been written in detail without losing interest of the reader. I don't know how you did it, and I will be re-reading this more times than I've read Harry Potter. (Which for me is saying quite a lot).
That brings me to my point...
I cannot find a way to dm you, since all the websites you mention in your profile are no longer in existence, not to mention you haven't been active in 15 years...
If, by chance you DO read this; please DM me! I am really hoping to get DP and ONP printed to put on my bookshelf, but my conscious won't let me do that without your blessing. I would love to pay you for it as well, since it is your work.
I appreciate it if you ever read this, and thank you for writing (and completing) this story.

I was recommended this story in 2010 and have reread it every year since. And every time I still get absolutely giddy with glee when he asks a second time. Thank you for making something so wonderful.

once upon a time a sixteen year old in 2007 with more access to the internet than was wise chanced upon a "very much not a mary sue" fic. said teenager knew nothing about lord of the rings other than the very early macro images on deviantart and livejournal but was enthralled by the love and dedication to this type of "oc falls into a story" story.
said teenager never bookmarked or saved the fic in any way (and mostly read it on a work computer that belonged to teenager's mother's workplace), read the latest chapter, and then never got to finish it.
well i'm thirty now and after more than a literal decade, i've finally been able to finish penny's adventure (or rather come back to the start of it).
i can't express to you how much this work shaped my taste and appreciation for writing. for how ocs work, how important dialogue carries things, and how characters interact with an environment (and vice versa). as they say these days, your work has lived rent free in my head for years.
thank you. and i dearly hope you're living your best life out there somewhere.

Well, I'm around 14 years too late for when this fic came out and the prior Don't Panic!, but what an absolute journey it's being. I've happened to come across these fics as a complete accident, but over the the past two weeks I've been utterly enarmoured by them, the characters, the setting, the genuine issues somebody would face going into Middle Earth from modern times.
In terms of stories & characters; I ADORED THEM! Love Penny/Pen-ii, feel she develops so well as a character over the entire duology. The other Elf OC's such as Mireth, Eleniel I also extremely adored. I wish we received more physical descriptions of them, and it's a shame that so little fan-art of this fic exists considering how legendary it is. I felt extreme sadness when they came to leave at the very end, as Mireth/Eleniel were such good cherished friends.
The other characters such as Halladan, Arvain, Faelon, Lindir, Erestor, Rhimlath, Celebdor were also really well written and fit perfectly well!
One of my pet-peeves throughout the story was Penny's reactions and interactions with people of import, such as shouting at Elessar/Elrond, being rude to well meaning friends etc especially later into the story, but that I guess was part of her 'fiery penny' personality. But all in all, it was amazing!
I've no idea whether the writer is still involved in fanfiction, or whether they're even alive all this time later as no other fics of similar note have been posted for upwards of 12 years on FF including other usual websites etc. But I wish them all the best if they're still around.
On the flipside anyone actually see's this review: the story is addicting, and I've found myself on my 4th reread entirely, some chapters I miss, others I can read all over again without fail :)

Really enjoying this so far, and I certainly devoured the prequel fic to this! But and it's a small pet-peeve but I still get so irritated when Penny randomly has an outburst, starts crying or tearing up.
I get why, but I still find the outbursts to be a bit... too much maybe? Especially after living in ME for some time now :(
