Comments For Cold are the waters of Cuiviénen
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!
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.
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.
Many thanks! I was going for creepy.
Interesting. I like how he still thinks of Eru.
