An Equation For Vengeance
THE OBLIGATORY DISCLAIMER: sigh. why do we even bother? like any of
us would EVER attempt to claim middle-earth and all its glorious
inhabitants for ourselves. oh well, here goes... the only things in
this fic that belong to me are Dolenheruiel and Ringrūnion. everything
else belongs to either the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien or New Line
Pictures. so sod off!
SPOILERS: there is going to be enough spoil in here to make you rot if
you're not careful, so read the books already, goshdurnit!
RATING: the rating of each chapter shall be in the subject of each
individual post. read at your own risk.
A WORD ON THE TEXT: the purpose of this fic, along with its various and
sundry sequels (one of which you can already read), is my attempt to
place a strong, powerful female character in Tolkien's universe and see
where she takes me. while writing "A Grief Observed," Legolas appeared
to me as the best canon character to explore many of her themes through,
so much of this has become from his point of view. it might seem that
Dolenherueil is a Mary Sue of sorts, but i hope that you will read her
as much more than that.
i also have taken the liberty of picking and choosing between book canon
and movie canon, but with the exception of D & R, there is not much of
an AU to be had in this fic. everything middle-earth specific, i hope,
is based on a researched fact or was never specified by Tolkien or PJ to
my satisfaction. but, as much as i hate to admit it, i am human, so if
you spot anything, let know ASAP so i can fix it and make sure it
doesn't pop up as part on a plot bunny in the next chapters.
as always, feedback will be greatly appreciated and, given the start of
the new semester this week, necessary to keep me from neglecting the
unwritten chapters. so, if you want more, better let me know.
otherwise, i'll finish it at my own leisure and hoard it on my hard
