Title: Chapter 1

Ah, this is great!  I can hear the madness in Melkor's conversation.  I love your approach - the reader hearing only Melkor's side.  It's very effective with ambiguity at work: is Melkor truly speaking to the One or is he listening to the voice within his own mind.  Both poignant and unsettling!  Nice work!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much and sorry for my belated answer!

This was, I think, the second fanfic I've ever written and one of the first pieces of fiction I've written in English, so I too think it was an ok work for a double beginner.

I'm very happy that you liked my portrayal of Melkor's madness here - I actually get praised quite a bit for my depictions of madness :P. However, if you'd like to read something a bit more polished, read the "Supreme Artist" which depicts Melkor as a religious fanatic who is against any kind of creation (artistic or otherwise). That story is perhaps my only story here which I would even consider recommending.

Again, it is truly an honor to be praised by a writer who, in a way, tremenduously influenced me and whose fan I am.

Thanks again!

Ooh, creepy.  I love the idea of Melkor singing while he's about his hideous business.  I took the song to be one he'd actually heard from the Elves, although I could also see it as one he made up. 



Author's Response:

Many thanks! I was going for creepy.

Interesting. I like how he still thinks of Eru.
