3. The Art of Defanging

There are possibly only two ways to 'get rid' of a Nuzgûl: by wilfully 'vanquishing' it or by writing the story it wishes to tell.

However, the first method is one only truly mastered by a few people who are gifted with a strong sense of will, and the tendency with the method is that Nuzgûls are merely made dormant and are not truly banished.

The latter method would be a surer way of permanently 'defanging' a Nuzgûl. However, many large Nuzgûl which come in the form of epic/long stories disappear for a time, much to the frustration of the author.

It has also been said that transmitting a Nuzgûl to a large community may help infect others, and in that process, disinfect the one-time purveyor.
