Ten Thousand Years Will Not Suffice  by Agape4Gondor 4 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 11 on 7/5/2010
It seems to me that Ecthelion is far, far too concerned with his own plots and plans and not at all in tune with those who love him. As for what he's done to Denethor--well, one who would do to his nine-year-old son what was done could be expected to do this, too, I suppose.

Nice that Theoden was born in the Citadel of Minas Tirith, where years hence he will lie in state, having given his life in the great battle against Sauron's forces.

Author Reply: I love the fact that Theoden was born in Gondor - it really is neat, isn't it? I'd love to do a tale of that man - I have grown to like him very much. Though Denethor really loved his father... I know, if Thengel had still been alive in 3019 - Denethor would have had more hope and might NOT have succumbed... hmm - another nuzgul... GET AWAY FROM ME...

I was surprised at this. Ecthelion, I felt, needed Denethor by his side... but his own sense of doom negates everything else.

Thanks for commenting!

Interesting indeed - twisted family dynamics, a very sympathetic Denethor.

"He remembered the tales of the kings of old, the last ones before the great wave engulfed Westernesse, sacrificing their children to... to what? Some dark force. He could not remember. But he knew there had been human sacrifice. What would drive a man, nay a king, to such an action?"

Now that is scary foreshadowing!

Well, Ecthelion seems to have gone completely and utterly off his rocker. He is overreacting wildly, to both Denethor and Indis. It seems that he terrorized some of Denethor's friends into revealing who was behind the plot, too -- I can't see anything in the plot itself that would directly reveal Denethor as the perpetrator. Or else Ecthelion is still harboring a grudge against Denethor and was just looking for an excuse.

I once knew a fencing coach like Eledhwen. He was a nasty bastard of a man. Eledhwen may be a good shieldmaiden, but she's a terrible teacher.
