Reviews For In Darkness Bound
Your tale brings to life one of the most interesting epasodes in the SIlm I think. Your usage of Melkor's perspective also has an interesting feel to it and I think it a good tale overall.
Hello, Eruraninon. I always thought this was a tale that should be told. Others might have different ideas of what may have happened during this time, but this is the way the Muse presented the story to me. I've written Melkor elsewhere, especially in my tale "Wars of the Valar". Thanks for taking the time to read and let me know how much you like the story. I appreciate it very much.
I liked this personal and private look at the Valar communicating with one another. It was unique, yet plausible, and overall I thought it really helped to give depth to the narrative.
The Valar are very much present in this story as you will see and play an important role. Thanks for reading and reviewing, Adonnen. I appreciate it very much.
Very nice. I think you do an excellent job in expanding upon a story that has already been told. It works very well and makes for an interesting reading experience.
Hi Adonnen. I'm glad you think so and I'm glad you are enjoying the story so far. Thanks for letting me know. I appreciate it.
This was an interesting beginning; I look forward to reading what you do here. the potential for political and moral (or however Elves think of it) exploration is great in a story such as this.
Thus far, I thought your representation of Melkor and the other Valar was effective and realistic. Melkor's hatred of the Children, for one, was well put. The writing and style seemed in keeping with Tolkien's own work, though there was a distinct personal element that I found to be refreshing.
Overall, an intriguing start!
Thank you, Adonnen. I'm glad you are looking forward to this story. The primary focus will be that of the Vanyar and their reaction to what is going on though we will see how the Noldor and Teleri respond to events as well. I'm glad you find my writing style refreshing. Thanks for letting me know. I appreciate it very much.
I agree that the Light inside the Silmarils was not Féanaro's making, but the Silmarils was, so I don't agree with Ingwë. This said, I am loving this story. It's well written, all the characters are believable, and you've managed to give a personality to Ingwë and his family.
Thank you SIlver Trails. Ingwë, of course, feels that there is something intrinsicially wrong in Fëanáro hoarding the Silmarils to himself. He feels they should be available for all to see, for what artist hides his best work so none may enjoy it? That is Ingwë's argument.
At any rate, I'm glad you are enjoying the story and especially finding the characters believable. That is something I've striven to do with all my stories. Thank you for taking the time to read and review. I appreciate it very much.
