So a while back, I posted my story The House of Elendil for criticism and discussion. I didn\'t really get many then. I have since expanded the tale considerably and it\'s the quality of the later chapters is, in my opinion, much improved over those of early chapters. The early chapters are still bearable and readable, but I just hadn\'t found my style or voice just yet.

Anyways, I\'m still interested in reading some critiques or general discussion if anyone is interested in reading this story over.

My story is a crossover between Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. After the Fall of Numenor, Elendil and his sons Isildur and Anarion were swept to Westeros rather than to Middle-earth. There they were forced to swear fealty to Aegon the Conqueror, and in return were granted lands and titles of their own. The tale picks up at the death of Jon Arryn, when Robert Baratheon decides to name Isildur the new Hand of the King.

I think my biggest flaw in the early story is a lack of canon divergence. Part of this was necessity. I had to carefully set up all the dominoes before I could knock them over, which is really starting to happen in the latest chapter.
