Unto the ending of the world

Ha - great chapter ending!  I really like the bits of humor in this, as well as the really ingenuous ways in which this AU is working out, and the characterizations.  Denethor, Eowyn, Halbarad all seem very well realized.    Poor Eowyn, all cooped up..... Poor Faramir, looks like he's out of luck.

Also good are the cliff-hangars and nagging little questions, like, what happened to Gollum and Who was that presence that aided Aragorn in his final moments?  I'll be interested to find out if my guesses are right...

Hi Helga,

Yeah, looks like tough luck for Faramir.

Once you get to that point, I'll be interested to know what your guesses were... Who, me?

I'd post my guesses now, but perhaps should give this a Spoiler -Maybe warning?

For the Good Guy mysterious presence, my first guess is Gandalf, who, even if fighting off whatever influence he may be hit with. May also have other reasons for his odd behavior.  Other guesses, which are mostly silly but fun: Frodo, who isn't dead, yet,but has manage to co-opt some of Sauron's mind; Denethor 2.0 (now that he's over being crazy, he's not being taken in again, he has some experience ve with this palate or mind-meld stuff,and he would just love to get back at Sauron); Saruman, reformed. No, Forget those last three......

As for Gollum, my reaction at the point he's mentioned was, " oh man,don't tell me,the unforeseensurprise is that Gollum saves the day." Well, he would've drawn toward the Ring, right?  And with Saruman making a bid in his own own power play ending up keeping Sauron distracteD, thatwould giveGollum a chance to get in there and screw things up (for Sauron).  The same Plan Araorn had, but carried out bby the bad guys, or at least, less thang good guys.

Hm, maybe yu can see why I read, but don't write, these things.....

Eek, too many typos.   I blame it (Mostly) on auto-correct.....

*heh* Interesting guesses... And all I can say to any of them is that I don't think I said that Frodo is dead (as Sauron wants to know, "Where would be the fun in that for me?")

(and, errr.... always blame auto-correct for typos Who, me? )
