That was a wonderful story! I loved how you tied two of Tolkiens poems in to one story (though I must admit I had never before read the Shadow Bride in such a sinister tone). Very creepy, in the best of senses!

I have read this before on FF.net, but it was a delight to read it again. I think this might be my favourite among your stories: the use you make of the different senses, the sound of the words and the word-sounds all make it a vivid and evocative read.

If you would permit, I think I would really enjoy trying to make a good recording of this. The word-images would be a challenge, but I think something could be done to create some auditory replacement. There is just something about this story that makes me want to read it out-loud. (And as I were alone reading it now, I did ;) )

Woho..., that was... hm... Havn't really made up my mind yet. Great, Creepy. Amazing... Confusinig. I followed what Aragorn felt, or tried, but then I needed to distance myself from it.

I especially liked that it was his decicion that saved him in the end (OK, I know, Gandalf did as well, but also he saved himself). The shadow - light - sight - thingy was consequently also that experiment of yours I found most interesting.

Oh, how creepy! I just love everything that's mysterious and unsettling and well, creepy. And marshes are definitely creepy in my book.

What I found interesting is that despite this story heavily relying on Aragorn's impressions (what he hears, sees ect) you cannot trust him from some point fourth. Or rather, it's open whether things truly happened the way he experienced them or whether it was "simply" the fever speaking. I like stuff that's ambigious...

And of course, then there's the concrete poetry andonomatopoeia were absolutely brilliant!

Thank you very much for the review Michelle! I really enjoyed writing this story because of this amiguity (not sure about the right word) - it's a story trying to express the feelings and senses, and in the same time one can't rely on seses too much. A delicious paradox! :D
