I was re-reading through this, and remembered I've been curious to know just what it is that ails poor Fin.  I was wondering if that ever gets expanded upon? :]  Or did I just miss it? haha

Author's Response: Evil as this sounds, it\'s never explained in this story what it is. Once I\'m done with this story, I\'ve got another that I\'m going to finish (Insatiable) that will explain what\'s wrong. However... there are clues in this story as to what it is, they are just few and far between.\r\n\r\nOr, if you really really want to know, just IM or email me and I\'ll tell you... there\'s a couple other people who were too curious to wait, heh.

This story always makes me smile and cry.  First time I read it I was so scared and sad for poor Erestor.  But I absolutely love it.  It was a crazy twist to have Haldir shoot Erestor (during that scene I was whispering "No, Haldir, you dufus, that's no injured animal"), and an unexpected revelation that he wasn't so upset with Erestor as he was with himself.

And as for Erestor - it was lovely to see into his mind.  I just wonder when 'someday' may be?

So, you know, been wondering about something for a while.

Oh, right, first - this story always gives me the giggles.  Cute and so playful.  And Fin's humor, plus the way Ress responds, is always a hoot.

Yeah, so I've been wondering - I noticed this in... (had to go look at title) Choices, too.  How is it that your little darling Fin seems able to make rain?  He does that in Valinor sometimes as well.  He win a bit while he was dead and get some honorary rain-making title? XD

Inquiring mind was wondering. :3

So this is fun! I haven't left reviews on auntie zhie things for a while, I thought I'd try it out. :3

I've been rereading your stuff in the evenings a lot, because it's fun sleepytime stories and there are so many cute little fluffy things to find.

I forgot about this fic for the longest time, and just stumbled upon it again, and had to comment to flail and grin. Seems like the surprise wedding theme isn't new to you. ;D  

I love all the little things you always manage to do. Like Legolas being 'self-centered' enough to worry if people noticed his fidgeting, and Gimli's dry answers. Or Glorfindel being all emotional and worked up and Erestor writing a poem on the spot to show his love. You always manage to convey characters so awesomely through the little details.

And the end, with the title of the poem being "My Husband", I feel like that says so much in so little, too. Erestor titling something his *husband*, even though he's still so shy about it and scared to admit his own sexuality, just seems so adorably sweet and loving. ♥

This story always makes me smile.  It's sexy, and it's cute, too.  And the personalities you use for this Fin and Ress are just awesome.  ... not that your bunniverse ones aren't. <3

But, as is my duty as a reader and reviewer, I must poke.  Even though I'm far too well aware you have way too many plot bunnies already breeding in your home.

Poke to know if Ress and Fin attend the much dirtier Rivendell version that Lindir hosts sometimes.  And what happens there.  No yadda-yadda-ing the naughty parts this time.  And... there was totally another poke I had that I forgot. ._.  I'll poke you on YIM if I remember it.

This is beautiful, Zhie and Dark!  It's so cute, and very unique.  I agree - this certainly needs completed!  I'd love to see Erestor grow.

 I love Erestor's possessiveness and how things have to be adjusted for him to understand.  The little things - Glorfindel's haircut, using steps - make it very fun.

Here's to more for InStoFiMo! ;D

I remember reading this somewhere else, first.  I... don't know where else it's archived, but I guess I found you there and saw this?

Either way, I think it's just a great piece of fluff.  We all know how I love me some fluffs.  Even though I've seen that format a dozen times before, it doesn't get old. :3  You make it all flow so naturally that it just works.  The elflings are precious, and you did a nice job with showing relationships through interactions.  :)
