If you like my work here, be sure to read "The Circles." This alternative universe tale explores what life might have been like had the Witch-king survived Pelennor Fields and Sauron regained the One Ring. The story is told through the eyes of a variety of characters, from Sauron and the Nazgul themselves, to a host of Southrons and Easterlings, to twin Rohirric girls whose fate is to become slaves of Nurn.
Khazar, thanks for responding to my challenge. :) Poor Earnur, what a fate, to be as armless as the Black Knight in Monty Python and the love toy for endless female orcs. Your theory of why Earnur was childless is very interesting. Perhaps homosexuality was one reason why the Gondorians were fewer in number than they once were - they were all gay. ;)
Khazar, thanks for adding another great story to the challenge. :) I like how you kept it vague as to who the King was until the line about Glorfindel. The reborn elf is a fearsome opponent for the Witch-king.
Khazar, thanks for sharing this humorous story about orcish superstitions. Anti-wraith charms would be a lucrative market, sort of like evil eye beads. ;)
This is a beautifully written story. One can almost feel the magic beneath the trees. Teron's sorrow is rich and thick, but there lies a chance that he could allow himself to love again. A superb piece.
Author's Response: That sensual magic was what I was hoping to capture, as well as Teron's change of heart. Thank you Elfhild! -Whisper
