This concept is amazing! :D Modern LotR-AUs usually make me somewhat uncomfortable, but this is the perfect balance of modern influences and "old-fashioned" canon. I really like that we are seeing a first meeting between Aragorn and Legolas here, when in book canon, it is implied that they already knew each other quite well before the Council of Elrond. Even if they don't know each other yet in this universe, they seem to click pretty well anyway. And it's pretty cool how Legolas immediately catches on to who Aragorn is, while Aragorn has no idea who Legolas really is. :D Apart from that, the hobbits were amazing as usual, and this is a very interesting take on Boromir. Seems about right if he grew up in a more modern (and more peaceful?) world. Looks like this is going to be quite the adventure.

mellon nîn! I loved this story. So intriguing, mysterious, and different. I will admit I've never watched 'Lost' before, but now I am greatly tempted to do so. Tell me, is it a good and worthy show?
Hannon le for making such a great story. It's very creative and amazing! Invisible oliphaunts and men? Quicksand? Illusions? Mad wizards? And yet the Fellowship still prevailed. I love how you showed the inner strength Boromir had, because it still does sting to watch in the movies the insane Boromir who tries to rob Frodo of the ring.
Amazing job. Hannon le, Mellon nîn!

No! You can't do this to me! (I have yet to check, so maybe you are as kind as I wish you to be) You can't just end it there! I have yet to see a sequel in your archive of stories... but maybe, just maybe I missed it the first time round. Please tell me that it's there? Please? I love this little fic, and there's so much potential for more. Normally, I'd be fine with it ending there, except you IMPLIED! That's the worst, when authors do that. You can't just imply something and then just leave it like that! You have to bring back Saruman and the Shire, and Isengard! And... and Merry! Seriously, I may have been a bit disappointed with Merry in the beginning, but no more! It's good... but it could be better if there's more. I'm going to go look for the sequel, and hope that it's there. I would add a 'for your sake' or a 'or else' but really, I can't think of a threat to threaten you with. You'll get off lucky this time, even if I can't find it.

Beautiful... Just beautiful. I loved that choice. It's obvious once you explain it like that. I feel like I'm missing out on something things because when you answer reviews you make reference to LOST, and I have no knowledge of that, but even besides that, this is still an amazing story. Now, I just have to tell myself to trust you in saying that no knowledge is required of the show. (And so far, that is true.)

Wow. They actually made it all back to camp alright. i guess I should expect that. I mean, they can't be in danger ALL the time, otherwise it wouldn't be quite as good. It needs some relief, so time for the reader (and the characters) to breathe.

Hmmm... I have a bad feeling. What, with Legolas running off ahead, Merry trying to follow, and Aragorn and Pippin left behind, those four are now splitting up... Now, the rest of the party needs to be separated and then we've got trouble.
| Thunder.Blade132 chapter 7 . 5/27/2014
Aw, I love the gruffness of Gimli and him trying to act all tough. Of course you would lose to Merry, how could you think other wise, Master Dwarf? I can almost hear Merry and Pippin's snickering after the first game.
| Thunder.Blade132 chapter 5 . 5/27/2014
Haha! I loved the hesitation when Legolas and Gimli decided to bridge the gap between their races. And... I've now decided that wether it be Pippin or Merry who looks into the Palantir, it's still awesome. Good job. You now have me converted to Merry's side. (At least for this fic. Wonder how the movies would have gone if it were Merry like in this one. Hmmm...)
I also really liked how clueless Boromir to what was going on with the Palantir and Merry. I hate it when that happens. Your listening to a conversation, but nothing seems to be making much sense when you know it should be.
| Thunder.Blade132 chapter 4 . 5/27/2014
Wow. You know, with all this talk of the One Ring, and everyone focusing on Frodo disappearing right in front of their eyes, the last thing I thought they would exclaim is "Where's Merry?" I mean, seriously. Good show.
