Title: Dark Prince ~ The Darkness Has Its Own Light. by Spiced Wine

His birth was accomplished by the blackest sorcery of Morgoth Bauglir.
He was forged as a double-edged sword is forged, as lethal and as beautiful.

He would not break.

"Until the sky breaks and the mountains fall into the Great Sea, and the End cometh, there is no world for us." ~ Vanimr Gorthaurion.

I am completely and utterly...gobsmacked.

And I will tell you this right now: I never, ever, ever want to hear you maligning your writing or denigrating your talents again.  It is not to be borne. I swear, I will storm off in a virtual huff the next time I witness it.  That is MY oath. Because this is genius.  Really and truly.  You have given Tolkien's world a depth and bredth only hinted at in canon.  The antipathy between the Elves and the Valar is palpable and fully justifiable; the fire of the Feanorians burns to the bone. You've painted an universe of brilliant chiaroscuro-- and the scope of it is utterly mindblowing. The last few chapters-- the final showdown, such as it was--between Van and Maglor, and then Van and the Valar-- was utterly sublime.  The descriptive passages were simply stellar, and played on every one of my senses.  It's been a long time since I could visualize a scene so clearly as in his communion with Ulmo, retrieving the Silmaril, and ultimately facing the Fos Almir.

Vanimórë said: ''And this takes me to Aman.'' --and you've killed me.

Van is truly a phenom. He is the most fascinating and charismatic antihero I have had the pleasure of coming across in this fandom. His Maiar blood is wonderfully, subtly present throughout-- he is an Elf, yes... but he is so much more. Yet never in a way that makes him lose his "humanity" (for lack of a more appropriate term). I loved that every decision he made was true to his character-- you didn't shy away from his dark side, or his crimes. But it's not just Van-- all of these characters are so vivid, so much larger than life. The whole story is epic in the truest and most poetic sense of the word. It is vast and compelling. I'm only sorry it took me so long to get here.  I tend to run from stories involving rape and incest-- some darkfic is simply too dark for me--but I'm glad that I finally worked up my courage to explore your world. And now I don't want to leave.

I will say-- and you must forgive me, as I know it's not in your canon-- but I was really hoping that Van and Maglor's love/hate relationship would develop into something more.  The way Van goads him with a smile just kills me-- but if there's anyone who could hold his own with a demigod, it's a Feanorian!!  

On to the next one...!!!



Author's Response: I am in tears, here, Kenaz. Back in 08 when I discovered your incredible Ionnath Estel, (which I miss, as I read it many times and was each time completely awed by your skill, please, please bring it back!) you were one person I wished would read this. It would have given me such a boost to get a review from an author I so much admired. But I didn't ask, and wouldn't because the content is a genuine trigger for people, or at the least a squick, and you can't ask people to read work they find disturbing. So, finding this review this morning made my jaw drop, and then my eyes fill up.

I will say-- and you must forgive me, as I know it's not in your canon-- but I was really hoping that Van and Maglor's love/hate relationship would develop into something more. The way Van goads him with a smile just kills me-- but if there's anyone who could hold his own with a demigod, it's a Feanorian!!

(: I am glad you like their relationship; so do I. Through the love-hate Maglor harbours, it does endure, because their time on Barad-dr was despite Maglor's pride and fury at Vanimr's manipulation, it was more than that; Vanimr genuinely gave everything, and it was the first time Van himself experienced true passion with some-one who could match his own. There is never a time when this attraction between them dies. It was forged in a very dark place, and forged hard.

But golly, your words, thank-you. And I am so very pleased Vanimr reads as a 'real' character. I didn't know when I began this, that people were not much interested in male OC's in Tolkien's world, because of the amazing canon characters, at least not interested enough to read a story set around an OC rather than having them play a walk-in part. So I am always thrilled when people like some-one I made up myself, if you see what I mean. It still amazes me. But when this story came to me, I had to write it, and it's still not ended (: Thank-you so very, very much for taking the time to review this, and even more for liking it. I am pretty stunned!

I never, ever, ever want to hear you maligning your writing or denigrating your talents again. It is not to be borne. I swear, I will storm off in a virtual huff the next time I witness it.

Same to you! When I read authors who completely humble me losing confidence, or thinking they are poor writers, steam comes out of my ears! I really do hope that seeing the Hobbit, getting back into Middle-earth, will set fire to your muse, because the fandom needs your work, Kenaz!
