I'd forgotten how much I loved this little character piece. Reading it now, it feels like a preview into the line of thought that spawned Dawn, though it works beautifully by itself too. The glimpses of Orc-culture you give us are fascinating; I think you're still the only writer in the fandom to deal with them like this, and even though I've been reading you for years it's still refreshing and exciting.

I love this :) A very interesting orc's point of view. She seems almost human and I was not sure if she was definitely an Orc till the end, although I was fairly sure.
Thanks! I guess that's kind of the point, really, to question how "human" she is or isn't (and by extension how "human" Orcs are). I'm glad you liked it. :-)

This is a fascinating glimpse of Orc culture, and one where they are much more three-dimensional and sympathetic than usual.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Author's Response: You're very welcome, Alquien. I very much enjoy reinterpreting certain parts of Tolkien's world and Orcish culture is one of them. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :-)
