Spectacular!  Especially the hint at how things might have gone differently in Eregion.  That would be one heckuva AU! :)

Thanks Maeglin! Well, so much of an AU that LOTR wuld not have needed writing, would it? Glad you enjoyed it.

Ch. 1: Five Things That Never Happened to Sauron

I am awed by the sheer technical achievement of this. 

What particularly strikes me is that if you hadn't stated the vowel restrictions in the titles of the pieces, I don't think I would have noticed - there's nothing awkward or forced about the writing or the word choices. The mark of a really gifted writer - to make something very difficult look as easy as falling off a log ;-)

And you actually made me feel sorry for Sauron, which is quite an achievement... Bravo!

Thanks for your generous comment, Azalais. It certainly was a challenge, but also quite fun to  write in different tenses or in ways I would not have thought about, just to avoid the use of each letter. I'm very pleased you thought it didn't feel forced.

And yes, poor Sauron, all those AU episodes must have freaked him out. Thanks again!
