Tolkien quote of the day:

But I will say this: the rule of no realm is mine, neither of Gondor nor any other, great or small. But all worthy things that are in peril as the world now stands, those are my care. And for my part, I shall not wholly fail of my task, though Gondor should perish, if anything passes through this night that can still grow fair or bear fruit and flower again in days to come. For I also am a steward. Did you not know?’

Gandalf to Denethor, Minas Tirith, RotK

bullet *REDONE* Creation Song of Ilúvatar by Fadesintothewest Last Updated: 1/5/2015
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.

Will post reworked chapters weekly to biweekly!*
