Tolkien quote of the day:

For Elves and Men are the Children of Ilúvatar; and since they understood not fully that theme by which the Children entered into the Music, none of the Ainur dared to add anything to their fashion. For which reason the Valar are to these kindreds rather their elders and their chieftains than their masters; and if ever in their dealings with Elves and Men the Ainur have endeavoured to force them when they would not be guided, seldom has this turned to good, howsoever good the intent.

bullet Shining Black by Salsify Last Updated: 9/3/2003
A somewhat different version of the story told in the Silmarillion chapter "Of Maeglin". Would Aredhel's family have given an impartial account of what happened, and could there be other explanations for why Eol did what he did?

A story of the development of the relationship between Aragorn and Legolas from before the Ring War until Aragorn's mortality ended the many long years of their friendship.
