Queen's Orc, The

Ch. 1: Insomnia

This is a fascinating story. You've created such a well-rounded, believable character out of a race rarely used so fully, or in such a way. As incredible as the plot sounded, I found myself quickly pulled into this story. I can't wait to get to the next chapter!

Ch. 1: Insomnia

I remember reading tales of Frodo following the Brown Wizard, and those stories helped inspire my own writing.  How I've gone so long without reading this, as many times as it has been recommended to me, I don't know.  But I will read it now, and thank you for the chance!

Ch. 2: Under Cover of Darkness

It's a good question, I must say, as to whether Frodo would still be alive.

Ch. 3: Dangers

I find I like Canohando's resourceful and logical nature.  He's made it this far, at least!

Ch. 4: The Elf-queen

Poor orc--at least it is recognized who he is and that Frodo has befriended him.  Now to see his acceptance by the Queen.

I love her the more for her compassion.  And Aragorn will replace the warden?  Good!

Obviously the King's  trust must be earned.  Well and good, as Canohando is patient.

Yes, it is that time.  And they see the likeness between him and Frodo, and honor that.  Excellent.

It must have seemed so strange to her, realizing he knew his time had come.

A difficult choice for each of them to face.  At least she will be guarded for what time is given her.

Ch. 10: An Orc in the Palace

Yes, the tales of Frodo's actions would grow wild even while those who knew him and loved him still lived!  Wonderful!  Love young Miko.

Ch. 11: The Doom of the Firstborn

He does not completely comprehend what disturbs her.  I am glad he felt he should kneel to Legolas somehow.   Yes, he was one of the Firstborn; and he will watch the Queen precede him.

And now he begins to understand and appreciate what it is she faces, and why.  I am sorry Miko's mother is as she is, although I understand in part.

Some always thinkthey know the right, even when the acts of those they hate put their "truths" to the lie.

So, he yearns now to be what he was meant to be before his family was taken and ruined by the Dark Lords.  A sad enough fate.  And Malawen is now drawn by him, even as he is drawn by the Light.

At last she is able to let go of her own grief, feeling his.  And all mourn the passing of the Queen.

Compassion where once there was hatred and fear is good; and I find myself wondering if he won't have his own shadow following him northward.

He is no longer happy, it appears, save when he has someone to protect.  He is more and more recovering the spirit of what he was meant to be.

wow, what a story! quite different from the usual. Great original characters. But how I wanted him to go West! even to the very end I was hoping. Perhaps in the next story?

Well done!
