Title: Temptation Author: Princess Artemis Genres: Poetry ID: 416
Reviewer: Antane 2008-11-03 01:07:15
Spoilers!
A very interesting long poem from the POV of the Ring, working on
those who come into its range. You get a good idea of its terrible
voice as it spoke to the heart and soul of those who it wished to
corrupt and kill and its outrage when the attempted seduction failed.
Heartache for its promise to slay Frodo slowly. Love the ending.

I thoroughly enjoyed this smartly told tale told from the perspective
of Lord Denethor's Cat. I especially appreciated the postive light in
which Denethor portrayed, unlike some movie-verse stories. I also very
much enjoyed the Cat's relationship with Pippin, and how he feels like
he needs to be the Hobbit's protector, even all the way to the Black Gate.

Well-told!

Title: A Hobbity Wizard Author: Golden Races: Hobbits: Childhood

Reviewer: Antane 2008-11-03 01:13:13
A sweet, loving tale. Gandalf certainly had his hands full but likely
he loved just about every moment of it, Pippin certainly did! Love the
whole adventure the two had. Everyone should spend such days like this.

I'm glad Frodo found healing and can talk more easily about his
missing finger and the pain he sometimes feels. That healer worked did
not just work on his physical pain, but his spiritual agony and for
that I thank her and bless her for helping such a dear heart.

Title: The Least of Rings Author: Marta Genres: Alternate
Universe: Drabbles ID: 621
Reviewer: nau_tika 2008-11-03 01:40:32
Well, this drabble was certainly a surprise! A totally different and
unexpected take on my favorite character's last moments with the
Ringbearer.

Title: Eight Weeks Author: Dwimordene Genres: Humor: Other
Fixed-Length Ficlets ID: 273

I'm not exactly sure how I should review Dwimordene's humorous drabble
cycle concerning manly fashion in late-third age Gondor. I personally
like a man with a well-tended beard. However, it is clear that
Denethor and Faramir think Boromir has made a mistake when he decides
to grow a chin full of whiskers. In whimsical chunks, drabbles show
the attempts by his brother and father to get Boromir to shave. A
light-hearted look at the Steward's family.

Title: MAGIC: The Password Author: Fiondil Genres: Humor: Elven

Reviewer: nau_tika 2008-11-03 01:50:52
This story was cute (though you may not appreciate me saying so). I
especially enjoyed the queen cautioning him on his language. I was
sure I knew what the password would be, but I was wrong. I'll remember
it now, though. Grin.
