Wow! Caunedhiel! That was a huge surprise Evelyn ending up in Angband.
Morgoth was exactly the way I've always envisioned him. Terrifying beyond belief and nauseatingly pleasant.
Another surprise is Evelyn being Mairon's daughter! Did not see that coming! She must be absolutely horrified. I know I would be.
Great story so far! Can't wait to read more! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm very glad you are enjoying it !! It does get a little darker as the story goes on but I won't spoil the surprise !! I always believed Morgoth was a little mad especially after spending so long in isolation as a prisoner of the valar. He is very unbalanced and very powerful I'm glad that he comes across so strongly I wanted him to seem scary :) Evelyn being Marion's daughter does have a purpose which will be revealed later on xx
Hi Caunedhiel, so lovely to hear from you. I've snatched a few moments to read this wonderful story.
"Oh Maedhros!" I had tears in my eyes when Evelyn watched as Maedhros fought to reach the place where Fingon had fallen, tears on his face and defeat in his eyes and others were pulling him back making him retreat. It must have torn him up inside not being able to help Fingon. Tissue time. :(
Author's Response: Fingon and Meadhros's relationship has always seemed so deep and enduring to me and I wanted to show that here . I'm glad that it has moved you so much!! Thank you so much for reviewing it really means a lot xx
Great start, Caunedhiel! I think your battle scene was very well written with lots of actions and kept the plot moving. I like the snippets you put in for credibility like Fingo's death and Maedhros fighting his way towards him. And this feels really rather scary.
Author's Response: Thanks ziggy! I'm hoping I can keep the momentum up with this as I struggle to complete longer stories!! Your stories , spiced and encairons really inspired me with this so I'm hoping it ends up being at least interesting :) I wanted to make sure events of the silm were shown as I think ofc stories sometimes end up very self centred and I wanted to make sure it didn't happen here !! Thank you so much for reviewing it really means a lot xx
I love your descriptions! So vivid, so real - detailed but not boring. And what an excellent idea to throw in a modern OC so long before LOTR!
Author's Response: Thanks very much *blushes* I'm surprised loads of people haven't written more OCs into the earlier ages, so much more to play with :) I really appreciate your review, thanks :)
I am going to pull my reviews from LOTRFF, sweetie, and then carry on..
I really like the way you've begun this. The sequence with Círdan and Evelyn communicate like this while she is unconcious, is a nice effect.
I am not sure why this genre of fic is not more popular than those set in the time of the War of the Ring, since the Silmarillion is so epic, but I'm happy to see some-one writing one! It's also unusual to see the first chapter focused also on Círdan and his thoughts, as modern-person-in-Middle-earth stories can tend to be very 'me-me-me,' but this is far more balanced; it's a good way to begin.
