A Bit of Rope

Ch. 52: Secrets In The Dark

I found this chaper immensley moving, Aiwendiel. The movement from the cold and calcuating torturer to the awakening of that memory and the kindness, the old fire in Sharkglub's spirit is a journey of tremendous imagination and vision. It could stand alone as a piece of fiction, worthy of any award. The control is in the intense focus on Sharkglub's pov and the gradual fear and shame and resentment. Just wonderful. And Gandalf's wonderful resistance and the reason he is able to resist makes such sense. You built up the sense of increasing desparation in the enemy too - and the contempt Shakglub has is enteriley in keeping with the truth about him (trying hard NOT to give spoilers). Just fabulous.

Hmm.  It appears that someone is awakening, and now not unwillingly.  I'm glad Gandalf was allowed this distraction--now to see the Elf awaken once more!

This is the first time I have ever read of an Orc being almost human.  I love the way you show his memories returning.  Perhaps there is hope for him yet.  (I'm still upset about Eomer dying.  Who will rule Rohan now?)
