Wow. I guess I've never thought about him that way. And the title is awesome:)

Angst fan reporting for duty!
You know they say that for every one person who reads you and reviews ten won't? It was more like 59 when I read it.
I really like this; few people write of Eöl and his thoughts and emotions and I have often found myself wanting to understand more about those characters in the Silmarillion who are doom-bringers, traitors, etc, and see their point of view. Up to and including Morgoth and Sauron.
I think this is an excellent beginning.
Indeed, there had been some dark force behind Eol’s desire from the beginning. Somehow he sensed that he had brought darkness to the city, though he knew not how. Maybe that was a good thing, to bring misfortune on those abominable Kinslayers. All he knew was that one day mighty Gondolin would fall, perhaps through him.
