The scenes leading up to the Council of Elrond have a lot of unanswered questions. Why didn't Elrond know where Aragorn was during Frodo's feast, or that his sons had returned? Who arranged that very odd head table seating and why? Where was Boromir that he could show up "in the grey morning" just in time? And why did Aragorn bring Narsil to the Council meeting anyway? With many thanks to my long suffering beta readers - Marta, Arandil, RiverOtter and Patti, and to Tanaqui as well. For St...

Ch. 52: Secrets In The Dark

This is the first time I have ever read of an Orc being almost human.  I love the way you show his memories returning.  Perhaps there is hope for him yet.  (I'm still upset about Eomer dying.  Who will rule Rohan now?)
