I must say I skipped through parts... The most striking thing here came for me at the beginning - the light and the all-consuming fire. I had not thought of it that way. It does make sense when put that way.
| Murazor chapter 1 . 1/9/2013
A solid fic.
Original, yet well rooted in Tolkien's canon and themes.
| Fortune Zyne chapter 1 . 5/29/2012
This was rather tragic and sad...Poor Indil...
| ThorinKiliandFili4ever chapter 1 . 1/2/2012
A great story. Very well written.
| Jayim Duinara chapter 1 . 12/3/2011
This was exceptionally well done. You were absolutely correct with the ending; his refusal to repent.
God's love and mercy are great and men are not cast into hell because they reach a point where they are 'too bad' for Him to save. And yet, in a way that is exactly the problem: men reach a point where they are 'too bad' to be save.
It's not that he reached a point where he COULDN'T repent even it he WANTED to; he reached the point where he WOULDN'T even if he COULD.
We rejoice when the goodness of mercy prevails; when mercy is rejected, we are left with a grim satisfaction that the goodness of justice has been served.

that was pretty amazing
and good that you have not created an AU where he would have been suddenly light again or some cheesy reunion scene, because the way you wrote it was authentic as well as heartfelt
| Eavis chapter 1 . 1/23/2010
Beautiful. My deepest respect, you have written a work of art.
Go with God,
| Thalion King's Daughter chapter 1 . 3/23/2008
This was really good. I think you did an excellent job of showing the slow decline into evil. The, as you put it, "it could have been otherwise" was perfectly clear. So many times when one different choice would have brought a drastically different end! Very, very well done.
In the King's service,

Hi! I hopped along a few favorite stories lists, today, and found this story. And I am glad I did! This is a great piece. I am usually no big fan of stories with a Christian touch, but you manage to fit the fate of the late Witch King into Tolkien's mythology and universe very well, and in a way that feels completely correct. i also like the way the fea of the Witch King can't remember, and mainly has judged himself, already, by his own inability to feel. Very well done, and very intense story. I like! Tank you for writing and sharing!
| eiluj chapter 1 . 8/18/2007
Wow! Found this on someone's list of favorites - and having read it, I know why.
Never thought I'd feel sorry for the Witch King...
*Very* well done!
| Lirenel chapter 1 . 6/27/2006
Wow, this was amazing. I too am a Christian and it is wonderful to have someone write the truth. Great job and God bless.
| Samus chapter 1 . 6/12/2006
Oh, that was such a wonderful story. Dark, yes, but in a good way. I hadn't heard that about the Christian vs. Greek tragedy, but I think it's very true. Yes, what a wonderful, tragic tale, and an excellent warning.

This is really awesome! Unfortunately, this proved to be a slight spoiler for me, because I haven't had the chance to read any of the companion volumes to LOTR (though I have definitely read LOTR). *added to favourite story and favourite author list!*
Will you read my story (if you're a Harry Potter fan that is)?
Looks like the Witch-King hates the light - completely.
| CitizenNancy chapter 1 . 4/3/2006
This was dark but wonderful too. You are the best LOTR author I know.
