This is excellent, Formegil, and poignant too. I haven't read many 'origin' stories and this is the best of them, as it does explain a great deal and give insights both into their past and Sauron's rather machiavellian mind.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm happy you liked it. This is actually a story I have wanted to write for a long time, but not dared before. That's because all the technicalities of the orc-breeding process were unclear in my mind, as was the way to present it all on the page. I feared a wrong treatment would make something meant to be very tragic just ridiculous. But a short while ago it all clicked together in my head, and here we are. I'm actually myself quite happy how it turned out (or should I say 'rushed out', as that tends to describe what happens when I finally sit down to write :D). As for Sauron's mind, he always struck me as an ultimate technocrat who only sees his goal and treats any ethical complications as nonsense. So, a being like him would most certainly have delighted in devising a scheme like this and in teasing out every bit of technical knowledge out of it.
