Shades of Grey  by Mirach 5 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 1 on 2/26/2011
Most poignant to see Morgoth and Manwe coming to an understanding of one another. May Eru bless them both.

Author Reply: I wish he would... Thank you for the review!

I think I've told you before, but I'll repeat - I *love* your descriptions. You make so beautiful pictures in your writing. So well done. :)

This is beautiful Mirach. I've always pitied Melkor, blinded by his pride, unable to love, to see the beauty around him. That he's been given a real chance, one that he might actually accept this time, is quite novel, and very happy. Maybe the two brothers will learn to understand each other. Any chance of a sequel?

Author Reply: Thank you! I think everybody deserves the chance, even Melkor, and I enjoyed writing it for him. But I don't think there will be a sequel - I wanted to finish the story in the point where every reader can imagine himself what happened next, and I don't want to limit those possibilities.

A very moving story, Mirach. I liked the imagery you painted and the conversation between Manw and Melkor was very believable and true to life. Thanks for sharing.

Author Reply: Thank you, Fiondil! I'm glad you like the story!

What a beautiful story, very touching. It is true, there is a lot of grey, seldom you will find situations well defined as black and white.

Author Reply: Thank you very much! Sometimes it looks so in Tolkien's books that there is just black and white, but it could be just the point of view of the side that tells the story...
