I just realized. When Penny says 'Et tu, brute?' she is speaking french, no? If so, then she is saying it wrong. She should be saying 'Et toi, brute?' because tu is used as a pronoun and in this case, toi is the only word that makes sense. (I'd just like to mention that french is my mother tongue) I am loving this fanfiction just as much as I loved the prequel! Can't wait to find out what happens next.

What a great set of stories. I've favorited you & look forward to reading your other stories. I'm going to also see if your forum is still around 7 years after you mentioned it some 10 chapters back. Thanks!

Didn't Haldir get killed in one of the battles? Or was that just in the movies?

Can I just say that was bloody brilliant! I read the first story and I was hooked, got even more so as I read this sequel. Your writing is so flawless. I loved penny's antics, shook my head at her more than stupid moments. And had a good laugh overall altgough the more depressed and angst like scenes were a bit much for me- however I enjoyed those too. Loved her relationship with the Elves. It surprised me how much I enjoyed reading the story due to the lack of legomance (and I agree with you: poor guy) or any elf/oc romance. I think this is the best oc to middle earth story, I have ever read. Just so you know, you caused me to sleep late countless times, the regret would hit me early morning- 0500hrs- and I would have to stop myself from reading just to catch some Zzzsss.

I took awhile but I finally finished your story! Can't say I regret pushing 'till the end. Now, okay, that came out wrong. I just meant that long stories as this one make me weary because usually quality in the writting drops or coherence with canon get compromised or coherence in general. It didn't happen though. I am still pleasantly surprised.
I will start by my main complaint which is: why did you not make her fall in love with an elf ? I am even more frustrated that I 'spoiled' myself reading the reviews to your stories, and instead of reading the right name I read Elladan. To say I was surprised at this turn of event is an euphemism and I spent half the sequel wondering how their relationship could evolve from what it was to love. It must be really hard to make the relationship between an elf and a human believable (with the beliefs of death they have, that would only complicate matters) but that's precisely why I would have liked to see you picture it. That said, I respect your choice as a writer, and this complaint is purely personal, therefore it does not involve any of your work as such.
About Penny, I will only say that if we were to meet it would probably frustrate me to no end. Too much crying. But then again, her personality that fascinates and annoys me probably made me grow as a writer. Because, yes, I did not throughfully enjoyed reading about her insecurities and was tempted to groan 'get a grip of yourself already' at times but that is how she is and what defines her as a character and a human and your keeping her that way made her so believable in my opinion that it still touched me to read about her distress. She's now one of my favourite fanfic characters because if couldn't indentify with her, I did however appreciate her.
The general setting of the story is perfect to me. I am no connoisseur of Tolkien's work nor do I pretend to be so I cannot really comment on that. However, I dearly enjoyed the way you pictured ME, making forget my surrondings and feel like I was seeing it through Penny's eyes. The story line was great, believable. You did not hesitate to pictures moments of boredom or of everyday life that would make me hesitate to write because of the risk of it being just plain boring but you managed to make it flow naturally and it was interesting, bringing insight that was just the final touches to the beautiful painting you depicted.
Thank you for this beautiful story. I hope one day you'll remember this website and write something else to make us dream of another place in LOTR.

So this is the second time ive read this story since May (yep, this year) and i cant believe how much ive fallen in love with it all! The characters, plot and just your writing style is perfection to me. And i swaer Penny's younger brother and mine are one in the same! Like their attitude and experience (particularly wrapping a car around a tree without a licence) is EXACTLY the same! But anyways expect be back in another 7 months or so to re-reread this piece of heavenly literature! Xx

Ok, I just finished this, and I am FREAKING OUT. I absolutely love how you tied things up in the end, although I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it :)
Also, I think the development of the relationship between Penny and Halladan was WONDERFUL. (Though I will admit, I was scared when, 58 chapters in, he STILL hadn't proposed.)
All in all, I think you are an absolutely fantastic writer, and I really hope that you come up with another story! Thank you so much for this one!

I just spent the last week reading this story between work, class, and family get togethers and I have to say it was really amazing. I nearly got caught reading on my phone while on the clock at work! Truly it was a good tale and I am amazed by your detail and ability to carry out a story so long! Penny is an interesting character, often times I found myself sympathizing with her and other times I found myself so frustrated I would have to stop reading. I can't say that I would do the same if I were in her position. Often times I felt that, had I been in her shoes, I would have learned what I needed to survive and then went off to discover what I could on my own. I don't think I would ever be able to rest without knowing why. I love how you brought it full circle. It brought tears to my eyes.

Wow. Though I am sad it is over now (I would have loved to read more!), I love the way you ended it here, making Penny a descendant of herself (if that makes sense). To be honest, I kept expecting her to wake up in a hospital or something, maybe with her mother telling her she had been in a coma, or a car accident,... I like your version better, though!
Thank you so much for writing this, I loved all 87 chapters of it! I think in Don't panic! you mentioned this being written for a challenge, and in my opinion you succeeded perfectly in keeping it realistic. Penny never had Mary Sue moments as far as I could tell, and was a like able, faulty person the whole way through.
I also loved the way you dealt with the language problem, as most authors doing a similar scenario stick with Westron being English... Which it was not. Congrats! You did such a great job with this I could gush on and on about this, but I think I might stop now.
Thank you so much, though, this was amazing! Easily one of my favourite fics on here!

OMG I'm crying this story was just so amazing and I can't express how much I deeply enjoyed it and cried over it with laughter and sadness. It makes me so frustrated that I don't have any friends that like to read fanfics (and I have tried to force them to read ATLEAST a chapter... which they didn't) because I so desperately want everyone in this entire world to read this story...BECAUSE IT IS JUST THE BEST DAMN THING I HAVE EVER READ. I'm so ecstatic that I found this and I'm now bookmarking it to my permanent stories to re-read in a year or so :P. Suffice to say I have tried to express how much I enjoyed this story yet there isn't enough words in the english language for me to express how amazingly awesome it was to read. You're awesome, this story was awesome and my mind has been blown!
