Lie Down in the Darkness, Rise up from the Ash

Dwim:

Another great chapter. I have been lurking and loving this story for months, but for some reason the last two chapters really took off for me. Thanks for responding to my last comment--actually I usually am not a "battle scene" fan (don't like car chases in movies either), but you completely drew me into to these.

Ack!  Heart-rending chapter!  Very gripping descriptions, both of Denethor's inquisition of Faramir and the battle.  Faramir is written very well here, his attack on the Witch-King is particularly worthy of note, since we and probably Faramir himself, knows that ol' WiKi can't be defeated (at least not by one mortal Man, however brave).

Hi oshun,

Well, that makes my day. :-) I'm hoping I won't wear everyone out with all the fighting, but we'll see what happens.

Thanks for commenting!

Hi Raksha,

Ack! Heart-rending chapter!

Good to know. I have to say this is probably the chapter I'm least fond of, of the four that deal directly with the siege/breaking of the siege.

Very gripping descriptions, both of Denethor's inquisition of Faramir

Thanks. I was very nervous about that scene. Denethor is such a hard character to control.

Faramir is written very well here, his attack on the Witch-King is particularly worthy of note, since we and probably Faramir himself, knows that ol' WiKi can't be defeated (at least not by one mortal Man, however brave).

It's one of those 'last man standing' situations. I figure if Shadowfax with Gandalf can be a roadblock, so can he for a while.
