Tolkien quote of the day:

And last and proudest, Imrahil, Prince of Dol Amroth, kinsman of the Lord, with gilded banners bearing his token of the Ship and the Silver Swan, and a company of knights in full harness riding grey horses; and behind them seven hundreds of men at arms, tall as lords, grey-eyed, dark-haired, singing as they came.

Minas Tirith, RotK

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. In my mind and in this story the wood elves are what outsiders would describe as feral, but also joyful despite the great losses they endure, a glimpse of what we see in The Hobbit. *Story has been edited and reworked! Will post reworked chapters weekly to biweekly!*
