Wow this past chapter was amazing. Shame on me, I just got an account and haven't reviewed yet. It is a little shocking I guess to see Celebrian (assuming it is her) being so wanton. But I am in love with your rendition of Khamul. Carry on the good work!!!
Author's Response: Ah, you knew it was Celebrian! Excellent! I guess I portrayed her a bit more negatively than most, but she's a high-born elf lady and entitled to a little arrogance. As for her and Grish...I don't think it was very much her idea (not sure if I got that across very well in the story). As for Khamul, thank you, thank you very much.
This is really interesting. I liked the idea that the village smelt of brimstone perhaps, and that it is Smeagol who is the target. Everything is nicely understated too.
Author's Response: Thank you! I figured that the village smelled like Mt. Doom, though Khamul hasn't realized it yet.
Great story and writing, again.
Loving the whole idea that Khamul is actually shaping the whole history of Middle Earth, makes for some interesting moments!
One thing, and i am going to sound like a total nerd/jerk/whatever for saying this, but the Eotheod moved into the area of Angmar in the reign of Earnil II, meaning the same period of time that Angmar was defeated. But that is really only a technicality, so i really wouldn't worry about it. only nerds/jerks/whatevers like me would notice haha!
Author's Response: Thank you! And thanks for the correction! I changed the little 'history' footnote accordingly. Please let me know if there are any other technicalities! Glad you're enjoying it!
