Title: Dark Prince ~ The Darkness Has Its Own Light. by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [ - ]
Summary:

~ Lúthien was not the only offspring of Maia and Elf born in the Elder Days, but Vanimórë's tale was never to be sung in glittering halls.

His mother was Elven.
His father was Sauron.
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.
And they tested him to breaking-point.

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." ~ Vanimórë Gorthaurion.

The first of the Dark Prince series, the story of Sauron's son, born to be a weapon, a warrior, a servant of the Dark – or its eternal enemy. ~

First Age to the War of the Ring.

Oh I loved this chapter! Think it was because if the Fëanorians!! What heartbreak. Especially Fingon's line" this is Maedhros" that was powerful. Poor Maglor trapped by his promise being unable to try and save his brother.

I am a bit confused by Tindòmion. I feel like I have missed something, like there is something else I should have read so I know exactly where he came from ?

Author's Response: Oh yes, Magnificat of the Damned I: Starfall, is partly Tindómion's story. There was no way I could fit all that and Dark Prince together without making it just too big and too unwieldy by going from Van's story to the Noldor, and back and forth like that, so I decided to write them separately :)

Date: February 06, 2015 Title: Chapter 22: Chapter 22 ~ I Reject The Valar ~

I can't believe they sent Gil-Galad to the void! I am so livid !!! so unfair!
Which Valar was this? Manwë ??

It was good to see Elrond get a bit of flack for not forcing the destruction of the ring when he had the chance. I always think he is let off a bit too lightly for that.

So sad that Vanimórë could not stay with them, I wanted him too but I understand his reasons not to.

Author's Response: Manwë pronounced the sentence, Mandos took his soul :(

It was good to see Elrond get a bit of flack for not forcing the destruction of the ring when he had the chance. I always think he is let off a bit too lightly for that.

I think Tindómion never forgives him, and Van would indeed have kicked Isildur into the Cracks of Doom and not even felt a moment's guilt.
I do understand why Elrond didn't, but it seems to me he was just being too 'prissy' about not getting his hands dirty. In fact I have zero interest in Elrond, and only writing him when he kind of *has* to be in a chapter, because he was there in canon. But, ugh!

No, Van could not stay; ultimately Sauron, when he returns, would just draw out all his memories of where he went, and use them when he went to war, so it would not have been a good idea!

Ah! Here it is! Now I understand a bit more about Tindomion .

Author's Response: There is a lot more in Magnificat I, but in this I just wanted to put enough for people to basically know whom he was :) And thank-you again, for continuing to read and comment :) It is very much appreciated.

Oh, you are breaking my heart with Vanimórë and Elgalad! I am hoping Vanimórë will be able to get Elgalad away from there though I fear his punishment for doing that will not be pretty.

Happy Birthday by the way!

Author's Response: Thank you :) And also thank you very much for the comments :D I really appreciate it!

Well, you will see :D

Date: February 06, 2015 Title: Chapter 31: Chapter 31 ~ Thou Must Run From Him. And Me ~

This was tragic....and cruel...to both of them. Heartrending.

I am loving this story. It is very addictive, and I have to say how much I am loving Vanimórë too. I am really invested in him now, I can't wait for the end of the Ring War when hopefully he will be free..........hopefully??
It is a sign of a good writer I think when they can get you to engage in one of their own characters. I have read many stories which would have been good except them have OCs I just don't care about, who aren't interesting .
To be able to create your own person who is gripping and exciting to read about and who the reader cares about takes a real gift with words and ability to convey emotion to the reader.
Loving it!

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I have been surprised, over the years, how readers have come to be invested in Vanimórë. When I began posting, back in 07, I didn't think any-one would even read the story. But he came to me one day, and his story, as a fully-fledged character, and it seemed all I had to do was write him.

OC's in fic tend to be seen as surplus to requirement - at least male OC's, as there is a sufficiency of stunning canon males in Tolkien, but I knew nothing about fanfic 'do's and don't's' back then, so I just got on with writing. I am so pleased to hear you like him :)



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 06, 2015 Title: Chapter 33: Chapter 33 ~ Silent Guardian ~

He saw himself for what he was. Elgalad saw a lie.


I think Vanimórë is wrong. It is Elgalad who sees him for what he truly is.

Author's Response: Unfortunately, I don't think Vanimórë will ever see himself as he truly is :( In fact with the ultimate ending I have planned, I am sure he does not :\



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 06, 2015 Title: Chapter 48: Chapter 48 ~ No Haven From Hate ~

Oh no! I am hating on Malthador at the moment. But also......you know, Legolas should have picked this treatment of Elgalad up before now. I guess he didn't imagine it possible but I still think he should have done more investigating.

Will Tindomion work this one out? Will they get Elgalad back before he gets himself into serious trouble??
Shame on you Legolas! You should have paid more attention?

Author's Response: I think the thing about Elgalad was that he was lovely, and very loving, but he was very reserved about himself - it was part of hiding that Vanimórë had anything to do with Sauron, (not so much because it might effect him, but he couldn't bear the thought that any-one might think badly of Vanimórë) and it spread to him being not very forthcoming about anything very much, so whatever was going on with him with Malthador, he wouldn't speak about it, especially as he thought no-one ever did. And Legolas has his own duties - and was used to Elgalad's reticence, so no he didn't pick it up.



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 06, 2015 Title: Chapter 51: Chapter 51 ~ Hallowed Ground ~

Legolas and Glorfindel??!

Somehow I think I should have picked that one up before now but it slipped past me!

Author's Response: Really that story would come into the one I plan to write about Elgalad's life in the forest, as he was there a long time, but as this isn't 'their' story, it's not gone into much.



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 08, 2015 Title: Chapter 54: Chapter 54 ~ The Edge Of Doom ~

What happened with Glorfindel and Vanimórë ?

Did they have a fling? I have been wondering that for awhile now but if so...did I miss it??

Author's Response: Well, we know they meet in this in the Last Alliance, as Van was a captured POW for a few years, but the main meat of that is in Magnificat I. :)



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 04, 2015 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 ~ I Will Not Break ~

This is riveting. I am really enjoying it so far. Just wanted to tell you that. I am curious why, given his parentage and the deprivation if his childhood Vanimórë is so determinedly "good " at this stage anyway. He has all these characteristics being capable of love, kindness, empathy to others, caring..... Presumably from His mother as he has never seen any of them demonstrated in his upbringing to learn them. Is there part of him that is Sauron too? The flash of uncontrollable anger when he realised what must have happened to his trainer felt like it was and his iron will and determination. I hope he doesn't lose the gentler aspects of himself.

Author's Response: Hello, Cheekybeak - thank you for reading. Van is open to love and compassion solely because of his sister, whom he tries to look after and protect as much as he can. But there is something of Sauron in him too, of course. Sauron thinks, much later, that they're actually very much alike, and they are quite alike in the way their minds work. Van is capable of cruelty, but whereas Sauron is empathic without caring, Van does care.



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 04, 2015 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 ~ Tempering The Steel

Why does Vanimórë not escape when he is with the Easterlings? Am I missing something? Or is it just because he believes he has nowhere to go?

Author's Response: He can't escape. He's not just a slave of the Dark, he's Sauron's own flesh and blood, so Sauron can always call him back. I believe that is shown in a few more chapters. The only time he can be free is when Sauron is completely 'gone'.



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 04, 2015 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8 ~ Son, Or Slave ~

I thought all along that Sauron might have had more success with Vanimórë if he had tried to control him with love, (of a sort anyway, or at least the illusion of love) which can be just as strong a form of control as fear and despair. But he didn't he went with the fear and hatred, perhaps because he himself was controlled by Melkor?

It is interesting to see here a flash of what might have been though if Vanimórë was a willing partner/ cooperative son rather than a slave secretly fighting against that being done to him. I wonder if that will change in the future?

I find the thought Vanimórë lives without hope, completely resigned to only being able to resist but never win, so crushingly depressing. How can anyone live for long without even so much as a fragment of hope?

Ah, well -- that would be going into spoiler territory, so I can't really say much about that! d;-) But basically Sauron did not want Van soft. He was making a weapon, and you don't forge weapons with love and kind words; you use heat and cold and hammer blows.

I find the thought Vanimórë lives without hope, completely resigned to only being able to resist but never win, so crushingly depressing. How can anyone live for long without even so much as a fragment of hope?

Because the alternative was worse. There were times he could have a little freedom under Sauron (and sometimes a lot of freedom, as there were times Sauron was very diminished), but if he were dead, and pulled into the Everlasting Dark to be tormented by Melkor for ever, he would never be able to escape at all. It's the epitome of being between a rock and a hard place.

Loved the scene with Legolas and the Mumakil...loved it!!!

Oh you are teasing me with this Glorfindel and Vanimórë stuff! I am dying of curiosity .

Author's Response: Oh you are teasing me with this Glorfindel and Vanimórë stuff! I am dying of curiosity

Well, I think looking at that chapter you have not far to go until the end so then, if you wanted, you could read Magnificat I, where it is gone into in more detail, because that story ends with the Last Alliance, where Van was a POW. But I am afraid that is not until the end of that fic. :\

Lol, Legolas and the Mumak. I don't usually go with film over book, but that was fun, so I wanted to add it :)



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 10, 2015 Title: Chapter 73: Chapter 73 ~ The Beginning ~

So Glorfindel is a Vala.....bonus for Legolas!!

I read the last few chapters of this very quickly because they were SO thrilling. This ending left me surprised . I didn't see anything like this coming.
I think Vanimórë has it wrong though. I don't think Elgalad is all that saved him from the dark...if anything at the end Elgalad, well his love for Elgalad, pushed him closer to darkness, with the way he killed the rapist and Elgalads Mirkwood elf tormentor. I think Vanimórë resists the darkness with all of himself and he has shown that so many times, he doesn't need Elgalad to do that.

I don't believe his parentage means he is somehow inately meant to be evil. Sauron wasn't always evil, He wasn't created as an evil being.

Of course Vanimórës upbringing and experiances could mean he tends towards darkness , who could blame him, I guess it is a nature vs nurture argument. But he has shown time and time again he will resist that.

He is punishing himself when he has no need to by resisting Elgalad, ( and punishing Elgalad too in a way by denying what he most obviously wants). This was very thought provoking.

P.s. I know he wasn't meant to but Maglor made me laugh in the last few chapters, the way he kept popping his head round the corner to say " I will Kill you" and Vanimórë was " yes, ok, just not right now.." I giggled everytime!

Author's Response: I know he wasn't meant to but Maglor made me laugh in the last few chapters, the way he kept popping his head round the corner to say " I will Kill you" and Vanimórë was " yes, ok, just not right now.." I giggled everytime!

lol, yes, that was sort of supposed to be more amusing than not. I actually kind of love Van and Maglor's relationship.

Actually Elgalad is - yes, you're right that his purpose is not really to keep Van from becoming another Morgoth, but Van thinks that's what he does. He can't ever see that he himself has a great deal of integrity. But as for impaling Elgalad's rapist, that was a punishment for rapists in Sud Sicanna, when he ruled there, which was for about 1000 years, and he would not have seen it as overly cruel, but as justice.

Van has always been part of this time-spanning game, and even he does not know that yet. Elgalad is - well, we only get hints, tiny hints, in Magnificat III, I think, but his love does mean something.

Thank you for reading.



Title: ~ I Will Lead And Thou Shalt Follow ~ by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [ - ]
Summary:

~ It was said that Fëanor had little love for his half-brothers, yet Fingolfin followed him to betrayal and, ultimately, to death in single combat against Morgoth.

There were many lies handed down through the ages, and this lie covered something so forbidden and irresistible that no law could forbid it, neither could death or doom destroy it.

The Arc of Fire, the blazing thread connecting the houses of Fëanor and Fingolfin encompassed three generations and thousands of years. It began in Valinor, in the Years of the Trees.

This is a prologue to Lords Of The Light, and set within the Dark Prince verse.


Fëanaro's aura was hard and as brilliant as forge-heated gems.

“And wilt thou indeed follow me?” he whispered.

Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 02, 2015 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 ~ A Flame Too Bright ~

I have embarked upon your stories. I was unsure where to start so picked this one because you said. Chronologically it was first but also Encairion has me longing for more Feanor and Fingolfin and oh, this didn't disappoint! So Hot. They are an irresistible combination.

I see I will have to get to grips with all their alternative names. Because I have only just read the Silm and not many Silmarillion stories I really only know the Sindarin names and not all the others so sometimes keeping track of who was who was challenging!

I loved all of this. It has hooked me in already . I especially like the description of a sleeping Fëanor as a panther.

Nerdanel I found very sad. I always find her story sad, as a mother the thought of her losing all four of her sons I find especially tragic. But here the saddest thing was her willingness to abandon her sexuality simply because the Valar told her to. To deny that whole portion of herself....... what a shame. I can get how a changed relationship and maybe lack of respect from Fëanor may have dampened her desires for him but she seems to have decided she simply isn't allowed any sexual desire at all with anyone. What a tragedy.

If you could give me a suggestion about which story I should read after this one it would be much appreciated!!



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 02, 2015 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 ~ The Imprint Of Power ~

I was going to comment about Anairës loss of desire but then I saw your note. I will have to wait to see what is going on there. It feels like either complete belief in what the Valar have told them or perhaps some meddling by the Valar in their minds somehow.

Fëanor raping Glorfindel shocked me. It was unexpected. I had to find the later chapter you mentioned and read Glorfindels point of veiw before I could even begin to get my head around it. Fëanor believes the end justifies the means. I am afraid I don't agree with him!



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 02, 2015 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 ~ A Jealous Burning ~

I am conflicted! I can't work Fëanor out.... Does he love Fingolfin or is it just lust, desire and wish for control and power? I cannot make my mind up.

Maglor is right though and Fëanor should have listened to him, I don't think he took him seriously, but Fingolfin is not someone to be toyed with. He is not Glorfindel to be bent to Fëanor's will. He has his own fire and strenght different from Fëanor certainly but Fëanor pushed him too far here.

We know with Fingolfin it is more than mere desire, he loves Fëanor. But Fëanor.....well I wonder if he even knows himself. I want to think there is love there, his reaction, charging after Fingolfin with a sword, was not a calculated and cunning one but one of passion. He was hurt and betrayed I think and that doesn't speak to me of simply wishing to manipulate someone.

Maybe I am kidding myself and he has just been playing Fingolfin all along!

Author's Response: He does love Fingolfin. When I write about these two later, after they have been re-born - well, there is still a lot of pride, but there is love, too. And Fingolfin does not bend so easily to his half-brother as he did before. The trouble is Fëanor never said, back in this time, that he loved Fingolfin. I suppose he thought it was obvious.

Basically, what comes up in later stories was that the Valar were trying to push Fëanor into madness for years, and his putting a sword to Fingolfin's breast was all to do with that. It is said that - something I mentioned on one of Encairion's reviews that incest is something gods may do, but humans may not aspire to, and Fëanor was challenging that. With his mind, his passions, his sense of possessiveness and jealousy, he was easier in many ways to influence than Fingolfin, since genius is not always 'stable'. It was the Valar who also influenced him to mistrust Fingolfin and leave him in Araman. When Finwë was killed, Fëanor in grief, was almost too easy to influence and from then until he died he was, to all intents and purposes, actually insane. :(

I have a fic on here which is for gap-fillers, and includes stories about these two, if you ever want to read them (although the most of it is in Magnificat II and III)
A Seduction Written In Stone.,
I Am,
Fire Touching Fire,
Facade,
and The Fire Of Blue Diamonds



Reviewer: cheekybeak Signed
Date: February 02, 2015 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 ~ Follow Me! ~

Ah, I feel sad knowing time is already running out for these two.

Fëanor seems completely mad. Of course he is, but still there is truth to be found in his madness.

I like the idea that the Valar tried to change the Eldar. Bending and forcing them to their will with their laws constraining the Eldars natural behaviour. I wonder though why the Eldar went along with it in the first place. Finwë and others would have grown up living a different life, a freer life. What was it that made them so eager to drop all that and conform? Simply the light of the trees? It seems strange it took until Fëanor arrived on the scene for them to start to rebel. It seems strange how much they gave up in the first place.

Author's Response: I wonder though why the Eldar went along with it in the first place. Finwë and others would have grown up living a different life, a freer life. What was it that made them so eager to drop all that and conform? Simply the light of the trees?

Hi there, Cheekybeak, nice to see you!
Not just the light of the trees - there was Utumno and the 'shadow-shapes' that haunted the hills about Cuiviénen, the Elves that vanished - taken away to Melkor's great fortress. Then there was the war in the North when the Valar came down on Utumno.
I think the leaders of the Elves believed they were taking their people to a safer place. Which there is no doubt Valinor was. I can see why they did it, dazzled by the Valar and the Light, but not realizing what they would give up. And it was not long before Fëanor was born. I believe Fëanor was the physical manifestation of the Flame Imperishable, and that he was supposed to be born, that Eru desired it, and in the future, when he is re-embodied, he will truly show what he is, and bring down the Valar. I can't wait to write that. But at this time, he was a threat to them. They had to control him, and couldn't. It is not surprising that with all those minds twisting his, he ended up mad!

Thank you for your review :)



Title: ~ Magnificat of the Damned. Book II. Resurrection ~ by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [ - ]
Summary:

~ At the end of the Third Age, Glorfindel and Vanimórë, son of Sauron, are the supreme Powers on Arda, having passed through Fos Almir, the Bath of Flame.
~~~
The mighty dead have returned, and Glorfindel leads the Noldor to a haven in the east of Middle-earth, which they call their New Cuiviénen. Fëanor, released from the Void, will rule there as High King.
~~~
But the ancient loves, hates and feuds of the Noldor have not dimmed or been forgotten with the ages, and their new life becomes a tinder-box of passion, pride and power. Ancient dooms and betrayals arise, and both new and ancient notes of the Great Music are played across the Fourth Age of Arda.
~~~
Fëanor felt his sons' arms restraining him, heard their voices, but his eyes remained locked on those of Námo.

“Didst thou truly believe – any of you – that thou couldst judge me?” He burned fire back at their stainless chill and then, scornfully, he laughed.

Oh! You surprised me with this. I did not see it coming. Celegorm and Finrod! But it makes perfect sense of Celegorm's actions, that bitter hate borne of rejection, nothing cuts deeper.

I REALLY want Finrod to Come back now. I did already but now even more so. But Celegorm hasn't forgiven him for......? Well, I don't think Finrod did that much wrong really. If anyone should understand not breaking an oath it should be Celegorm, and the fact Finrod was determined to sacrifice his own happiness so as not to hurt his father, again Celegorm should understand that. It was misguided but if anyone knows about misguidedly doing what your father wants it should be a Feanorian!

I want these two together and I think Finrod is ready to accept that side of himself now, but he is not ready to forgive Celegorm and Celegorm doesn't seem like he is ready to acknowledge the wrongness of what he did at all.
I am eager to see what happens. It will be rather a shock for Glorfindel who has his own Celegorm issues as well.

Author's Response: Thank you for commenting, Cheekybeak - well, since it is already written, I think you will not be too disappointed in what happens :)

Oh! You have me feeling so so sorry for Celegorm.......and I was not expecting that, I really wasn't. What great writing, you have completely swayed me. More convinced than ever these two have to get together!!

Author's Response: Ah, I love it when that happens - when my own passion shows in my writing, I mean :) Thank you so much for your comment! It is coming together - sort of!

Oh I have a bad feeling about this. The Balrog AND Celegorm going off hunting on his own in the north..... the fool!!

Aargh!!! I was right! ....... Finrod will save him.... Surely!
And I have to go and cook tea so I can't read any further. So cruel.
And why isn't Glorfindel answering?? Hopefully just temporarily distracted.

Author's Response: Glorfindel is momentarily distracted!

OMG! Orodreth!? I had no inkling of this. You totally succeeded in distracting me with Borniven. I had forgotten Orodreth was even around let alone a traitor!

I like that Feanor has had his eyes opened here. His horror at the thought Maglor......and Maedhros still believe the silmaril to be more important to him than them. Who can blame them after the oath and everything that followed after.

I don't like Feanor. I am not sure if you want me to or not but he is too arrogant for me to like. His enjoyment at controlling others....
Perhaps this realisation of how his sons see him may improve that. Here's hoping because I would like to see him with Fingolfin properly but not quite as the person he is right now.

But then again..... I find I am quite liking the idea of Fingolfin and Maglor. Maglor needs someone. He has no one right now, Feanor just can't be his and Vanimórë neither. He needs someone just for himself I think!

On to the next..... So gripping!

Author's Response: Orodreth just bores me, and if some-one bores me they stand a very good chance of being made into a villain or ignored completely, lol.

Fëanot would never put a Silmaril before his sons, and never would have, although I think they needed to know this and see it - as did many other people. They can't be blamed for thinking he might have.

I don't think Fëanor changes massively; he's always going to be arrogant, proud, but he loves his sons more than anything in the world.

FDingolfin and Maglor, well they do have a 'thing', although it was never written about in depth, (and what Maglor has with Vanimórë cannot ever be broken) but so many of the house of Finwë are attracted to one another. No-one is exclusively paired in my stories as naturally, Elves were not supposed to be monogamous but the only Elves who have ever lived 'naturally' are the wood-Elves who never knew of the Laws of the Valar. Here, at the moment, the Noldor are just feeling their wings, their new freedom, and it will take time.
