A Bit of Rope

Ch. 47: What Strength Remains

This is fabulously written. Sam's voice is so strong as a character and the use of the ring to give him hope, entirely and absolutely right. You changed the tone and the imagery at that point to reinforce the idea and it is perfect. So the bit of rope comes into its own! Wonderful writng, I am enjoying htis so much. Thank you!

Ch. 47: What Strength Remains

Just quoting this particular passage, because I think it is simple, beautiful, and simply beautiful:

Despite how this land is ruined, beneath it all, these are still stones, and this is still air. ... Above those thick clouds the Sun and Stars are still shining, and somewhere there's water… He can't really destroy it, underneath...Them that made all this... Why, they're still here, and all I need to do is ask for their help.

Ch. 47: What Strength Remains

Just as Sauron can't touch and sully what is above in the skies, he can't completely destroy what is here, either.  Definitely the hope needed by two Hobbits caught in the wastes of the Ephel Duath!  And love the glimpse of one of Shelob's children scuttling away, and the use of Sting to free Frodo from it's bindings.
