Tolkien quote of the day:

But the Lords of Valinor forbade them to sail so far westward that the coasts of Númenor could no longer be seen; and for long the Dúnedain were content, though they did not fully understand the purpose of this ban. But the design of Manwë was that the Númenóreans should not be tempted to seek for the Blessed Realm, nor desire to overpass the limits set to their bliss, becoming enamoured of the immortality of the Valar and the Eldar and the lands where all things endure.

Akallabeth, The Silmarillion

bullet *REDONE* Creation Song of Ilúvatar by Fadesintothewest Last Updated: 7/16/2015
Story of the Royal Family of Mirkwood and a young woman who appears mysteriously and has a great vantage point from which to observe both the light and dark moments of life in Mirkwood. Explores Silvan/Avari culture.

Will post reworked chapters weekly to biweekly!*
