Lie Down in the Darkness, Rise up from the Ash

Hi Dwimordene! You know how I felt about this chapter but I wanted to leave this comment.

Shocking! The very end of this chapter was very powerful! Legolas emotional lament just takes your breath away. Such profound sadness just transferred off the page and into my soul. This touched me so and is part of the story that I cannot forget. "And into the Silence, there came a Note, One Note...."

Hi RS,

Thanks for your comments, particularly the one about the Song. It's a fun device to have, and essential for getting this AU off the ground and moving, but it's difficult to incorporate at times. I"m glad to know that particular point came off well.

I'm glad "Dust to Dust" was so effective for you. Hope you'll enjoy the rest!

oh, dwim, no! you're killing me here! this story is so engrossing, so well done, that i am devastated by this chapter ending. i'll say no more so as not to spoil anyone who hasn't read this yet (get to it!), but oh what a heartwrenching scene. and the imagery of legolas keening was profound, especially in how the sound was remembered years later. great to end it with a return to the Song. it makes me think there is hope, but it's hard to see where!

Hi docmon,

Thanks for your comments on this chapter, both here and in e-mail. I can't credibly say I'm sorry for the angst of "Dust to Dust" (I'm a card-carrying angst-bunny) but I'm glad the framing device of the Song keeps things uncertain.

TTFN,

Dwim
