Lie Down in the Darkness, Rise up from the Ash

Oh, Dwim, I finally got around to reading this...and now I am in an absolute mess emotionally. I know I read it far too fast, and shall have to go back and read it more thoroughly, so all I can say now is: thank you, thank you, for not killing Eowyn or Theoden or Denethor. I am not sure if I can forgive you for my other three favorites' ends *sob*...but likely will after a good rereading. Wink

Hi MerryK,

 I am in an absolute mess emotionally.

Well, I guess that means I'm doing my job to shake the reader up and cut away the familiar certainties of the story. And I'm glad you're not planning to cast me into Utumno just yet for the demise of your three favorites!

 Thanks for your feedback! I do appreciate it!

Hi Peregrin Ionad - glad you've been kept guessing! And I'm pleased the story at least is capable of provoking such a reaction.

TTFN,

Dwim

@Raksha - Phooey. Well, I've been uncertain how well that epilogue would read, so I'll continue thinking about it and see if I can't clarify matters.

The idea, however, was that the reader learns whether the quest succeeded only in the epilogue because Frodo is so far gone by the end of the chapter that he just doesn't know. Because he doesn't know, however, it should not be a foregone conclusion that it succeeded or that failed.

Still needs some work, though, it would seem. Thanks for your feedback!

@ Nath - glad you enjoyed! Thanks for reading all this time.

That's an eerie moment, echoing the famous Orc counting contest from LOTR.  I'm glad that Legolas has the concern and prospective friendship of Eomer, if he will only avail himself of it.
