The use of the storm in this is magnificent...the sea is truly out of balance, is it not?

Wow...what Legolas saw in the Silmaril...I'm speechless. That was so well written! The calling of the sea..it has many meanings.

*Screams* No! UPdate, update, update!!!

Once again, I love your use of the weather.

The seas' calling...if Legolas is to go to the sea, what will happen to him?

Cheers, and update soon!

Bryn,
Wow! You've balanced the action well and kept all your characters involved. Bergil is a delightful young fellow and Legolas is his mischievous self on the trip. Aragorn seemingly remains himself, but the creeping changes in his personality are well done. The hold of the stone is evident in subtle ways to begin with and then shows itself when Aragorn holds his sword to the throat of his friend. I can still sense the old Aragorn in his manner, even though the stone is exerting its power. I like the way you've written him. It's not some immediate change that just suddenly goes snap, but weaves it way in and out of his personality. Morgoth is creepy, as usual. A very interesting view of his whereabouts. Well done. I look forward to more. :>) Karen

Author Reply: I can't tell you how relieved I was to read your comments on Aragorn. Absolutely RELIEVED. The greatest complaint I get on this tale is Aragorn's behavior. It's extremely difficult to show the jewel's impact on him--especially as the Silmarils do not (technically) have the same drawing power as the Rings. There is good intent behind Aragorn's actions, unfortunately, they are slightly tainted. Oh, you've made my day! :)

Even though he's chained in a Void, Morgoth has probably figured some way to "reign" over it. Power hungry gods are usually have an odd talent for stuff like that. *lol*

Thank you for the great review!!!
