Along Came A Spider

Ch. 1: In The Beginning

I am really enjoying this tale.  It's got all three elements I appreciate most in Tolkien fic: goes back to the Ainulindalë itself, deals with darker characters, and presents sound philosophical speculation. 

Ungoliant's role here reminds me somewhat of Shiva in Hindu mythology.

Ch. 5: Return

Aeärwen, this is the perfect conclusion to this story.  It's one of the few stories that makes Eru palatable to me--even the Ainulindalë itself did not do that (in fact, it did the opposite).  Good to see minor characters explored in a creative and compassionate way.
