Eucatastrophe II: Everything Sad Come Untrue  by Dreamflower 2 Review(s)
viresseReviewed Chapter: 1 on 11/10/2004
Oh, no fair! You're gonna make me eat my words about disliking AU stories, aren't you!?! When it was just the one 'Eucatastrophe', I could keep my dirty little secret. But now? I'll have to come clean. I do like these, and your weaving of Tolkien's own words into this AU version. I really liked the first one as I am a sucker for truly happy endings.

Are you planning to re-title the first one since it is chronologically so much later than this one?

Author Reply: I don't care too much for most AU stories, as the majority of them tend to make things turn out darker and even worse than in the original story. And the whole reason I write them is that I, too, am a sucker for a truly happy ending!

I will probably not mess with a title change, as the last time I tried to mess with anything like that I messed up the whole posting. But this *is* a prequel to the other as you point out. Although I don't think it really matters which order you read them in.

Hope you think this ending is happy enough! 8-D

Oh dear and how will this affect what happens in the Shire? But I guess that is why this is still in progress. You wove this so nicely around parts of the book, it will be interesting to see what differences you extrapolate for the Shire when they get back home. And clever to use the "Sharkey's End" part from the books when he died and was denied permission for his spirit to go back to the west.

And what an outcome of Wormtongue in this, he can't win in any version.

A very intersting universe you are creating here.

Author Reply: Thank you for the kind words! I like the Eucatastrophe Universe because sometimes I just get enough of the angst, and want some nice things to happen to our hobbits.

This one is kind of a prequel actually to the first story, but in other of them the key is Saruman.

No, I'm afraid Wormtongue gets his, no matter what. I'm not too sympathetic to the bad guys, LOL!

It's fascinating to speculate on the changes that could have happened, isn't it?
