Sharper Than A Serpent's Tooth  by Yeade 1 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 3 on 3/12/2016
I find myself rejoicing that in this-verse Brand and Dain actually survive! What an ally to have at this tense moment, which remains tense as a result of that ally's nature! Love it!

Author Reply: Uh, don't rejoice too soon. ^^;; Remember that there is still Dol Guldur to contend with. When I first started writing this story, I didn't plan on fleshing out the whole AU timeline which I now want to construct. This expansion is in large part because Smaug's survival, by his very nature, as you say, creates a LOT of trouble, and I just couldn't resist imagining what, for instance, Aragorn's views might be on Dale's rulers having the fantasy equivalent of a nuclear option. Of course, who knows when I'll get around to actually putting such ideas into text, but it sure is fun to speculate in the meanwhile! (P.S. Apologies for the much belated reply!)
