|Reviews for Letters to Mendanbar|
| Drollittle chapter 3 . 5/5
I am rereading these now too, with my husband because he didn't read them as a kid. I've been hungry for more of the story, and your letters are just perfect! I hope you keep writing more—do they meet any more wizards or dangerous persons? In TtD, Daystar has a profound respect for Cimorene (more than the typical teenage boy). Do you think he ever had a rebellious phase? What events might have led him to feel like Cimorene "always had a reason for what she told him to do"?

This is awesome! I forgot a long time ago about these books, so thanj you for the posting. I agree with you that the time jump of, what? 17 or so years made you miss a lot of the poyentially wonderful storyline that would have made the series better. Again thank you.
[And. Its also exciting that someone else has read these]

Oh, my memory is so rusty on this series, but I love that you've picked this fic up again! I enjoy these little snapshots you've created. :D

Nice concept and I think you hit the tone pretty well. Too bad you didn't continue.

I hate how long Cimorene has to wait for Mendanbar!

Oh wow...this is pretty epic.

I think you have hit on a wonderful idea! After all, a lot must happen in Cimorene's life while Daystar is growing up, and she would be sure to write a letter to tell Mendenbar about it soon after something happened, while the memory is fresh.
I seem to recall that in the Fourth book Cimorene and Daystar are living in a remote place, by themselves. You must explain when and how the move took place. And why it was necessary. Then there is Daystar's comment that some visitor's thought Cimorene was a sorceress. There are a lot of possibilities for interesting short stories in this territory you've staked out.
You have a very nice story here, and the characters sound right. I hope to see more of it in due time.

Cute! I *LOVE* this series, it's so excellent. The whole Medanbar getting trapped always threw me for a loop. I haven't read the books in a really long time, I can't really accurately critique much of this (I had to really strain my brain trying to remember who Willin and some of the other side characters mentioned were - that shows how long it's been since I read them, haha) but anyways, it sounded all good to me. It was cute! Well done, T!

Aw, that was sweet, and sort of melancholy. I'd like to see more. Nice job!

Mhm, I like the idea a lot. Seventeen years is a hell of a time gap, and it's nice to have something to fill it.
I think you have Cimorene down fine. She might be a little more poetic than I expect her to be, but considering how fresh the wounds are, I figure that's justifiable. I'd advise adding in a bit more sarcasm to later chapters, though.
I can imagine whatever you described pretty well too. Not bad. :)
