The Pillar Perished Is

General Comment

Very powerful and well-written vignette, Imhiriel, and I thought you used that wholly appropriate poem to great effect. I found his thoughts, his single-mindedness and especially his guilt, all plausible and fitting well to his actions. That he might be pursuing such violent and destructive ends not just due to vengeance, but also due to a need to obliterate or expunge that horrible feeling of guilt, adds an entire additional layer of understanding for me.

Wonderful scene-setting; I had a very clear sense of how the surroundings looked and sounded and felt, but the pacing is never bogged down by the descriptions. I loved the symbolism of the letters/Tengwar, too.
