Such a simple piece, and yet, so intense. I love the line about 'men and elves die, but power does not.'

A novel perspective. I enjoyed the view from the "watery prison."

Ooh, I don't think we hear from *that* POV very often. Very intriguing.

Very good, Alexcat! I was able to guess the object quicklyÂ… very sinister and broodingÂ…

Little used characters are such a joy to read about, and I'm impressed about how well the point of view of a semi-animate object comes alive here. Interesting new twist, and I especially like the eery line about metal and men and elves passing, in contrast to power.
