Title: Cultural Differences

Why, oh, why did you interrupt them!? Sorry, this story just amused me so much and then turned me on so hard I am now left frustrated and unfulfilled. Well done. And with two characters you wouldn't expect, too.



Author's Response:

This was meant to stop at a very small kiss - kind of light pg-13. I have no idea what happened, LOL.  They are the most unlikely couple imagineable, yes - only written because my beta dared me. It's a little unsettling that I'm still tempted to write more...

Thanks for reviewing :)

Title: Cultural Differences

LOL I just found this some days ago and couldn't seem to unlatch it from my brain... Wicked! :) This is the first time I could love story with a slash theme in it. :P You did a great job here, although I admit that I didn't know it was to be a slahs-pairing when I firstly read it. LOL

 

I love the humor present in every paragraph.... except the second half, of course. The Maia was so amusingly indifferent and the young king was quite sarcastic with sharp wit to boot. *grin* They made a perfect blend between two extreme points.  Oh, I never thought our Maia here like this, but this was quite a refreshing novelty - to me - to see. Perhaps that was what firstly attracted me to this... Hmm.

 

"I never intended anything more than a very brief kiss, no idea what happened
there. Every so often I get the urge to send them off on a picnic or something but so far I've resisted." Aww! Why not? *grin* Do it, please? :big eyes: Haha! Never thought I would beg for a slashy story... but now I do, anyway. That's heartfelt! I want to see how far things would go... Heheheh. A bit of naughty thought there. :P Anyway, thanks for writing this (although I seem to have come too late to greet it first hand) and posting it here!

Hi Rey :)

So sorry I took this long, I didn't get a comment notification.   

If I found a story featuring Gil-galad and Eonwë, I'd not expect slash either, lol. It was a dare originally - I gave Eonwë a small part in a longer work where he was horribly annoying, and was later challenged by my regular beta to write him with Gil. I wasn't even sure about the kiss when I started, but Gil apparently had other plans, lol. 

I have an idea this is the biggest compliment I've been paid - someone who doesn't usually love slash asking me to write a sequel to this fic, lol. I'm delighted you liked it so much, of course, and if anything could make me revisit the picnic idea, this is surely it *g*. Thanks a million for the lovely review, dear. I'll see if the boys will cooperate.

I loved it! I think this was my favorite:

Violet eyes met his blankly. "'Feeling - up'?"

Imagining explaining that to a Maia who claims not even to know what kissing is! :)



Author's Response:

One thing I'll say for that Maia - he was more than willing to make an effort to learn these strange, new customs *g*.

Thanks for commenting, Dawn - finding this made my day!

OMG! I am so excited you posted this story here. I absolutely adore it. (I know. People are like that. You have such a body of beautiful serious stories and people like me go crazy over a deliciously wicked romp of a story like this one.) Everyone should read this story.

Author's Response: Thank you :) I thought no one except the person who dared me to write it would read this pairing, lol. I was pleasantly surprised. They were great to play with, partly because I'll take any excuse to write Gil. I never intended anything more than a very brief kiss, no idea what happened there. Every so often I get the urge to send them off on a picnic or something but so far I've resisted.
