|Words of a Wise Woman by Aelaer||10 Review(s)|

|I must agree, Ioreth was one of the best minor characters Tolkien created. I love how you've portrayed her. I can almost hear her spreaking as I read this story. You utilized first person perspective fabulously. Writing in first person I think is a special talent because it requires an author to really know the character who is narrating the story, and you did a great job with it. I haven't read a whole lot of stories that have Ioreth as a main character, and it was nice to see her used as the narrator. I bet The Wise Woman had a whole bunh of great stories to tell.|
A job well done!

|How delightful! Ioreth is one of my favorite characters; this is a nice visit with her.|

|"Our last coversation"? More like "my last monologue"!|
And he is indeed one of a kind! Love our Elessar!

|Ah, that is our Ioreth! Well done!|

|The Houses of Healing is definitely one of my favorite chapters as well – mostly for Ioreth. This was a fun idea. You do her voice so well; it feels precisely how it would be to talk with her: no words in myself. It had a cozy feeling, really. |
And Aragorn is wonderful. : )

|I like this--seeing him through Ioreth's eyes, and seeing the early days of his reign. And you do have her voice down pat!|

|Oh, I love the way you seem to have caught Ioreth's breathless voice! Very nice!|

|I agree with you that Ioreth is a fascinating character, who saw (and gossiped about!) so many things the people she spoke with would never have known about, if not for her. Her respect for the new king might have convinced many folk to give him a chance.|

|This is very good - very enjoyable! |
I agree with you that Ioreth is great character. It amuses me when he annoys Aragorn by talking too much!!
Happy writing and please update soon!
