This is my only review since I just realized you're story is complete and may not even see this!
I Like this story as it isn't as technical as DON't Panic which also is good but is way too technical for my eyes to handle without bleeding.
I was hoping you would fudge this and make the common language be some sort of Ye Olde English as I believe Tokien said it was similar or something like that from what I've read.
And I am not sure if you take suggestions or not but with just one guard she actually could escape. If you research prison escapes you will find some amazing stories of escaping supposingly escape proof camps and thousands of stories of climbing over prison walls using a makeshift rope and sheets to get over the razor wire without setting off the shaker alarm on the inner fence.
There is a neat TV series called I almost Got Away with it you can watch on YouTube. One episode *How I built a bridge* one time the suspect arrested from the nearby Salem ORegon prison! Filmed in my home state! by making some kind of a bridge using tools from the workshop to cross the two fences and knowing when the guards came in and out.
I won't spoil the story!

Oh wow, it was a really really great story! I really liked your writing style, your OC-s were really lovely (truthfully I got more to like Elhael, thank Glorfindel :D) and your main character was real, not a Mary Sue. I also loved that apart from sime minor thing you your story was really true and correct for the Tolkien world, the grammar, language, the little fact, I was really glad to see that you wrote twelve months when the baby was coming, because a lot of people don't know elves bare a child for that long, and such. Also I liked that you foudn a wy to make her immortal, but still human. My only minor problem was probably that sometimes I felt that "the lovely little chats" were a bit too much, I mean I see it was not a too "action-based story" and I have no problem with it, I quite much welcomed a story where the writer doesn't try to force continuous action, but around the end I felt the sweet talks were a bit much. Apart from this I loved it really and was a great story!

Hmmm interesting start to your story. I wander if there was a reason she came to Middle Earth or by sheer chance? I'm interested to see where this goes.

One thing puzzles me. Don't the elves of Rivendell speak Quenya more prominently than Sindarin?
| Heatblizzard chapter 6 . 9/19/2013
Instead of fighting the Balrog why not domesticate him for useful purposes?
Make a special area in the Mines of Moria just for the Balrog where no Dwarves are allowed to enter as long as The Balrog acts as security for the mines to deter Orcs and Goblins away and any the Balrog finds he is allowed to eat them as a tasty snack. Mmmmmmmmmmm.
I guess that's asking for too much! LOL

Actually from what I've read The Common Tongue is suppose to be English so this does not reflect well but other then that no problems here!

I love this chick! I wish I had the patience to learn all those languages! And no, she does not need a "life". She's got one already!

that aside, i enjoyed reading very much and look forward to the sequel, though i should catch some sleep beforehand

A very good concept, girl falls into middle Earth, what now? Well-built character and all that. Hope this discourages you're fury at the bulk of my "review" which is just blatant capitalism.
OK: if you like Lord of the Rings and you want Mordor's perspective, search Ringbearer: the Epic Story of the Heir of Mordor. There have been changes to Tolkein's original world (Elves are not immortal but believe firmly in reincarnation, Sauron is a family name, not an immortal devil etc.) and purists will hate me, but i think it gives the series more moral grey area. Anyway, my first post so i'm looking for feedback. Hope you like!
(sorry Imlosiel for using you're epic story as a billboard, but hey, every writer needs an audience).
