I am finally done! I did it! I set a goal and I made it.
I am crying right now. I worked so hard on this and I have put a great deal of my love and commitment into the emotions of each and every fully written moment. Writing the ending was so hard! I think I might start sobbing. I rounded off the story to look right back were it all began for Captain America: in that little recrutement exam room and on the night before the procedure, with Erskine seeing what no one else would beyond the weakness and frailty: strength of heart and a good man.
I loved writing the outline, and telling you all about it, even if none of you commented. it was a heck of a roller coaster ride in some places, and I honestly thought that I would reach 100 pages but nope, even with the very brief outline of the second part of the fifth story, which is more of a guide to set up how it will be written rather than actual scenes, it only came to 90 pages and just under 45,000 words; most of that being the lion that became part 4, with a whopping 37 pages, part four only made a meager 20, with the epilogue and timestamp outlines.
the last was a small little goodbye for the story that I think will be very short when actually written, and I will most likely be sobbing by the time I am done. I hate having an ending, but it will be a very tidy ending; with all the strands tied up nice and tidy giving it a bittersweetness that will hopefully make you all cry in a good way when you read it, because I am on the verge of tears just thinking about it.
I have two writers I must thank for their rules of writing an LOTR tenth walker story: Telcontar Rulz
if you know her better there, and Dr Matthattan
who both follow these rules to the letter. if you haven't read their work check out the links and give them a read. I promise you, you will not regret it. Telcontar Rulz/Mordaen will make you laugh out of your seat with the Kingdom of Heaven Crossover. read the first three in the series if only. you will laugh and cry, but mostly laugh.
the Doc has a place of honor here for inspiring me to create this monster of a crossover. I know it doesn't look like it but this was always leading up to the LOTR crossover. It was a long and arduous journey but I hope it will all be worth it in the end.
Now... onto the nitty-gritty: the Story. I will write them! it might take a while for the first one to come out but it will be worth it when you see the blending of the lotr Tolkien verse with Cap and the MCU.
I kept my promise about not being too influenced by the CIVIL WAR movie arch. there are some hints as to what was going on, here and there. I gave it my own idea of what was happening and blended it with my preexisting idea; and I must say that it came out beautifully! I even managed to wrangle in T'Challa a bit with the fight scene from that clip. I will give a Teaser if it is requested and start posting my costume and Character designs for Steven, Bucky's son. I have yet to create designs for the other characters I created but I will get there.
okay now... I hope that someone out there that loves this kind of story will post here and want to see the first draft, because I am looking for a beta. Requests, recomendation and suggestions are welcome.
thank you all for your patience
