Now this is entertaining: we've seen the fanfic lounge as such, but now we're taken inside a Story with Legolas, who is forced to endure the adventures (and unwanted attentions) of Mary Sue. If one has ever wondered what a character, did characters have independent existence and a sense of identity, might think of the stories they appear in, this would be the fic to read. My personal favorite scene is the aftermath of Mary Sue's introduction to the Fellowship-great ensemble writing, even if it is brief. Intelligent humor that makes you think about your own stories in a new light.

Poor Legolas. Poor, poor Legolas. Oh, the things we writers subject our characters to! The Fanfic Lounge stories were excellent. This story, in my opinion, blows them out of the water. The trip with Legolas through a Mary Sue story is something I will never forget. I must admit that Legolas was far more accommodating than I would have ever been. But though he was more or less genial on the outside, his inner protests and bruised pride kept cracking me up. And he tried to hard to escape! The myriad of tittering and occasionally distracted guides were a great addition to this piece, but the crowning moment was really when Legolas used the author's vagueness against her and broke the necklace he was supposed to use in his escape. I more or less saw it coming, but I still cheered when it happened. And when Legolas used his charm as a weapon, I cheered again. Well, cheered and winced, especially with the kiss, but the whole romance scene is somehow bearable because Legolas is just using it as a means to an end. Thankfully they pulled him from the fic before things could get too intense, though. And thankfully he survived to go back to Rohan and hunt Orcs. Spectacular tale that had me laughing the entire way through.

The Story of Legolas and Enoreth by CNell Enoreth is deliciously vile, as all good Sueparodies should be. Skin the color of new milk. Singing her prohpecy/history thingy. Cerulean eyes. Eeew. Just, eeeew. I'd spork her through and through if I weren't laughing so hard.

The story starts a bit slow for my taste, but from the middle of the second chapter on, when the Mary Sue parody Enoreth enters, it picks up, since the main attraction of this story is definitely the over-the-top MarySueishness of Enoreth and her absurd fate.

Truely inspired. Legolas is so very much himself in this completely off AU version of M-e. Which is what makes it worth reading. Am I the only one that wishes that this author would take a serious tone? I've not looked into any of her other works, but I darn sure will! I laughed. I laughed until I cried. Yes, it was that good! Well, done!

Absolutely wonderful. Yet another hilarious story from the Fanfic Lounge, and yet a departure from it. For Legolas is not resting from the fanfic her but being put through it! I laughed out loud while reading this, honestly, especially the part where he kissed her and then let her fall to the ground. Brilliant. I expect no less from CNell. This is probably the best Mary Sue story you'll ever read. Especially if you hate them.
