The Sons of Thunder

Ch. 27: Fireflies

I've always loved fireflies, and now I know why.  Each chapter is better than the one before, and each one keeps me wishing for the next one.

Yesssss!  (Sighs with relief.)

Gandalf is so wonderfully IC here - filled with power, yet irascible and short-tempered. I love his terse explanations to the Twins as to why they shouldn't even contemplate using the Ring; and I also like the fact that (as in Moria) Gandalf is tired after deploying serious enchantment.

The description of Gimli's confused thoughts and experience of pain as he's waking up is very effective too.

I'm wondering one or two things about the Ring of Power though - such as whether, having carried it, Elrohir wouldn't have realised sooner that he'd dropped it, or that Elladan had picked it up. And whether Gandalf wouldn't have sensed that each of them had had it. And I'm just slightly confused - at the end of the chapter, has Elladan picked it up again or is the lineThe cold iron ring pressed against his chest and pulsed lightly. He could take it. He could have more power than he dreamed... He could... a flashback to the previous chapter? I'm hoping the latter!

And the fireflies - lovely device. Could have been corny but I think the fact you put them in from Gimli's POV, and his natural scepticism - the wizard's cracked, but let's humour him, it's often a good idea - saves us from that.

Fab fab fab! More please!

This is lovely - the fireflies, Gandalf's exasperation, the twins' conflict and Gimli. And it's getting more hopeful.

Okay -- just found this confoundededly lovely, hot, thrilling, terrifying and addicting story, and read it pretty much straight through, and damn, I am hooked -- just what I needed, when my own AU tale is not done either!! What powerful imagery, story, characterizations! Add my clamor to the rest: more! MORE!

I was very relieved to read Elladan decided to leave the ring behind; hopefully the Nazgul will be content with recovering them both and Gandalf and co can get away?

"A lightness returned to his spirit that he had not realised he had lost" reminds me a little of Frodo on Mt Doom, before and after the ring has been destroyed. Obviously these rings corrupt very strongly. How will the brothers' relationship play out?

And there were 4 Nazgul in all? Missed that.

Thanks very much
