bullet *REDONE* Creation Song of Ilúvatar by Fadesintothewest Last Updated: 11/30/2013
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!*
