| Whyhow chapter 16 . 4/13
Why would Sauron kill Gandalf's body? He would just go to the Halls of Mandos and potentially heal and return. Ainur can't be completely destroyed, otherwise Morgoth would not have just been exiled to the Void.

This isn't a huge problem, but I notice that you keep spelling Saruman as Saurman.
| Whyhow chapter 10 . 4/13
This is an interesting idea, but it would be easier to read if you put some kind of mark when it switches between scenes.

I googled many parts of your story. I googled for a few hours trying to find your story. It is awesome enough that I did all that just to find it. I went through many pages of lotr fanfiction pages trying to find yours. And find it I did. Thank you

An old story and certainly not a bad one. What keeps it from becoming a good story is your inability or unwillingness to properly spell given names: Saruman, not Saurman; Halbarad, not Halabard. It's annoying, detracting and in the end just plain sloppy. 5.5/10.

Great story and a fairly happy ending. Sorry about Sam. He was a good Hobbit.

Kindly learn to spell "Aragorn" correctly.

Beautiful story, and awesomely written!
| Thunder Stag chapter 28 . 8/9/2013
I have to say, this is just as impressive as your Promises series, and it came before that masterpiece. Don't worry about the movie thing; I did the same thing, although it took me longer to read the Unfinished Tales and the Silmarilion.

You should write a version where Gandalf goes black )

From the reviews this looks like a promising story. Don't have time to read now, but I will alert the story so I don't lose this amazing story.

It will be interesting to see how you resolve the conflict.

Great story. This was a very well done AU that could have happened had Frodo wavered and was lulled by the words of Boromir. That said, I'm glad that Boromir himself got to stick around and carry out his rightful duty as Steward of Gondor.
I was actually hoping that Sauron would win and that you would take the chance to describe a ME under Sauron's rule. Even so, I am glad of the changes you made and they made sense. Radagast's fear of Gandalf after taking the One Ring (though had Radagast actually DONE something rather than dick around Rhosgobel speaking to buzzards this may have been prevented) was genuine and in character with the timid and somewhat cowardly brown wizard.
Everything about this story was well done, especially characterization and tension toward the end concerning Gandalf still made sure to make this story interesting even though Sauron was defeated.
