Wow, Nath! That was neat. A great extrapolation from the original. Nasty little thing!

Good heavens, Nath!

I re-read this story, and it creeped me out all over again.... The thought of Smaug roaming Wilderland is bad enough, but the rest of The Wise being either dead or ineffectual.... Ah, me, what a horrid fate for Middle-earth!

And Saruman is so in-character here.... beautifully written, Nath!

Playlists Featuring the Story

Different roads - 9 stories - Owner: Nath
My AU stories (mostly short) gathered in one place - I could explain here that I like seeing how changing one thing can affect everything that happens after, but perhaps it's just that I like breaking things ;-)
Included because: Saruman has found more than just Isildur's bones... Vignette with very dark implications.
