Bone-chilling and dark yet oddly enjoyable- there's something that draws you in. Perhaps it is the suspense of who will be narrating the next chapter, and who will no longer be alive to do so. I love the quotes at the beginnings of the chapters- I tend to do a lot of this myself! Overall, an excellent story and I feel a morbid excitement to see where it goes next.
This is deliciously dark. I am impressed - especially Elrond's bashing his own head in - now that is masterly, because it sounds so horrific - and it is something I could envisage if Sauron triumphed.
In one fell swoop you changed history, which is irresistible really, whom has not thought 'what if?'
There's too little darkfic in my humble opinion, and like Pink (who is a stupendously talented author) I am wondering where this will go.
One thing: The accents over the E in names like Eomer and Eowyn don't come through; they show up as ellipses (...). I know it's irritating, but it's far easier in the long run to just leave them out.
This is interesting. I like the diary format and the little details--those surrounding Elrond's death were especially chilling. I'm interested to see where you take this story.
