I love this- read it elsewhere I think. The sense of the Sea, and being rushed and tumbled is very real- love this joining the mythology almost of the origin of Orcas.
Thank you very much, ziggy!
Good to hear it gave you a real sense of the Sea!
Maybe all the earliest orcas were escaped orcs, but I've left that for the reader to decide.
This is a very different and thought provoking story.
It's actually quite a beautiful concept. An orc given another chance at life, one that offers a different kind of freedom.
I have often thought, "where do orc's go when they die?" Are they reborn like the elves, or do their spirits dwell elsewhere?
Thank you, Gabriel, I'm glad you find it thought-provoking!
I wanted to give this orc, at least, a chance at freedom.
Of course, if orcs do go to Mandos, they might choose not to be reborn. Not all elves want to be reborn, after all, either...
