The Sons of Thunder

Wow, this chapter was interesting.  Much of the time Elrohir's characterization in fandom is slightly dark but pretty much a good guy.  this is a different, way more intense and definitely tortured Elrohir.    Forgive me but I can totally see him being corrupted by Sauron.

What's more is I'm not sure if I feel sorry for him or if I'm beginning to dislike him.  I will agree with his self assesment, he is  definitely being a fool.

Great development.

Man, where to start?  My heart is still rampaging wildly inside my chest as I attempt to retreat frpm the mountain top where you've just left me.

Legolas' vulnerability throughout this chapter is heartbreaking.  I love that Elorhir has a *different* plan than Gandalf's, it gives me much hope, and I understand he must use the darkness in order to accomplish his goal, but that too, on both sides of the equation is absolutely heart-rending.   He cannot afford to give in to any softer emotions at this point.

Yet even in shoring up his darkness, I see and hear Elrohir fighting not to reach out to Legolas,  consciously refusing to allow himself to alleviate the desparate need for consolation, for some comfort in this lonely task appointed only to the woodelf.  It sings through the whole chapter, inspite of the prevailing darkness. 

Bring on the Nazgul!  I'm dying to read that challenge!

Gulp...

I'm not sure who to weep for most.

Woah, Elrohir the anti-hero! I'm so hoping you're going to bring him back from here, because you're really turning him to the Dark Side just now...

Your descriptive powers do come out again in this chapter, with the wild loneliness of the place and the cold.

I have a horrible feeling I'm not going to like the next chapter, though...

Glad to hear so clearly that Elrohir has his own plan, because Gandalf's has this extra fatal flaw; how is Elrohir to escape? Of course, does he want to?
