I'm going to join in with the others and tell you that I was up until 1:30 last night reading this through to the end! I love the way it all weaves together, and I'm a sucker for happy endings.
>>"Perhaps, Maitimo, you are unaware that some of my forebears were among those whom you Gondorians call the Black Numenoreans,"
Great use of canon here - as was the sleep spell in the first place.
>>No, my lady, only those of my . . . heritage. The Eluwaith
I'm always fond of any instance, canonical or quite invented, in which it would seem that the Sindar have an advantage over the Noldor.
>>The ships of the Corsairs had arrived at Harlond. I thought we were saved. And then, with my one good eye, I saw a banner unfurl; a white tree and seven stars.
This is particularly moving - it's such a dramatic and wonderful moment when Aragorn arrives, and yet here we see that what thrilled us as readers rooting for the 'good' side devastated the 'bad' guys, who are not all bad after all. (Of course, one of Aragorn's great qualities is his ability to see this.)
I'm curious about this word - was it derived? I can't find it in any of my sources. In general, though, I liked the use of Adunaic in the speech of the Southrons - it fits in well canon-wise.
