Reviews For Tone Deaf

Name: Quantumphysica (Signed) · Date: July 01, 2014 17:32 · For: Chapter 1

This just broke my heart, because it makes so much sense... Especially the part where he drew away from the others not because he felt superior, but because he didn't manage to harmonize with them. He must have felt everything but superior at first... 

One little comment, Morgoth wouldn't have been called "Morgoth" back in those days, as it was Fëanor who gave him that name. His original name was Melkor. (It's not all that disruptive to the story though, I just thought to mention it. ^^)

Author's Response: I have had a couple of friends point out that the old version used would have been Melkor, but I used Morgoth because this actually takes place at the end of the War of Wrath when he is being judged and sentenced to the Void. I thought about using one name for the reminiscence portion and the other for the current-time part, but in a short story of this length I felt it was too jarring, pulling me in and out of the action as the name switched back and forth. Your comment is totally correct, though, and I am still thinking about changing it before I leave the story completely behind me. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the story and that you found my plot premise reasonable. I really appreciate your comments and review and, especially, that you took the time from your busy day to read my story. Thank you! - Erulisse (one L)

Oh how I recognise Morgoth's problem.  And this explains a lot!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I know there are many out there who are tone deaf and that it affects their ability to participate in some aspects of music. To have one of the Valar, a group who creates through the use of Song, as tone deaf would change the Song in ways that possibly are still being discovered. - Erulisse (one L)

As sad as it is, it makes a lot of sense. A group of people who values singing so much is bound to have someone who can't sing or can't properly listen.

I wonder if there were Elves who were deaf? Or mute?

Author's Response: I'm sure there were elves who were deaf or mute, perhaps that is a plot bunny you might want to explore some time. I firmly believe that the universe was created by Song, therefore being tone deaf would transform that Song into something totally unintended - at least initially. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing :-) - Erulisse (one L)
