I was only thinking about her earlier today. It's such a tragedy. RIP Nightwing.

Reviews For The Man in Black

Name: Ellynn (Signed) · Date: July 10, 2012 11:47 · For: The Man in Black

I like this! I like your idea and descriptions. Very interesting ghost-story. :)



Author's Response: Thank you - writing from the point of view of the young, slightly outsider, observer was really good fun.

Oh, I like this. Very well built up, and while I could see it coming, it was still delightful to anticipate the resolution. The glimpse into the future of well-known characters is well done.  And you've made me curious now about these other people - I take it they're from a series of other stories of yours? Where might those be found?



Author's Response: Thank you - and yes, it is part of a series that has a mix of long and short stories in it, beginning just after the battle at the Black Gate. The first story is 'The Return of The Key' - which is a true cross-over story showing how Dawn, 'The Key' from Buffy, became Tind

What a great ghost story! Poor Faramir, knowing that his father was still traversing Minas Tirith, and that he might very well walk through him. Poor Denethor for being stuck.... :) Great story, with of course a very light hearted approach to it, much different from most ghost stories. I really enjoyed it, thanks!

Author's Response: Thank you! It was really interesting writing it from Haldirin's point of view - but I remember wondering how to finish it, and then realising that Faramir was the answer - so making poor Faramir's time in Minas Tirith slightly uneasy for the rest of his life...

A great idea, it creates a real goosebump moment with the idea of Denethor constantly sitting and then hurrying across to look inot the Palantir. Great stuff as always.



Author's Response: Thank you - I actually wrote it for a 'halloween mystery' prompt - and it was really fun looking at something really rather scary from Haldirin's viewpoint.
