Summary: When Gil-Galad, the High King of the Noldor, takes an interest in a strange elleth who many fear is dangerous, what peace that remains between the Elven lands in Middle-Earth is threatened. There are those who find her troubled but harmless, some who fear that she may destroy the High King and just one who believes that all of Elvendom itself is at stake.
Soundtrack: Dido's Lament by Henry Purcell

Author's Note: Welcome! I'm so happy to have you here. Before we begin, I just have a few notes about this story that I would like to bring to your attention. To start with, this is the first substantial piece of writing I have done in about seven years. Long story short, I've been living with a severe chronic illness for some time now and found that I had more or less lost the ability to write due to a myriad of physical and emotional reasons. But now, yes now, I think maybe I'm ready to try again. So yay! You see why I'm so happy to be here.
A few other things...this story is not strictly canon (well, I suppose all fanfiction isn't really canon). I'm trying very, very hard to adhere to what I think to be Professor Tolkien's wondrous vision. That said, if I make some huge mistake (like mix up the timeline of the S.A. or misspell some Quenya), please do let me know right away and I will fix it .If I'm being completely honest with you, I'm more familiar with the events of the T.A. than the S.A., so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will all go as smoothly as possible.
Also, this fic is basically about one thing: Elves behaving badly and making poor choices. I hate to be blunt, but if that isn't your thing, maybe it would be best to skip this one. Of course, we aren't talking about Game of Thrones-level treachery here, although there is a fair amount of political intrigue and backstabbing and bitter feelings going on. Having said that, though, I have a HUGE amount of respect for Tolkien's Elves and have tried my very best to stay true to their culture, morays and practices.
Now lastly, the main female character of this story has an incorrect name. To be frank, it's just something of garbled Elvish that I tried to make up with my little Quenya/Sindarin phrasebook about thirteen years ago. So why haven't I changed it? Lots of reasons, but mostly because it's been her name since I started this fic years ago and to change it now would confuse too many important elements. So yes, feel free to call me out on that if you like, but I am highly aware of it.
Well, that's my rambling nonsense for now. I really hope you find this prologue enjoyable. If you have a free moment, please leave a review, I'd be totally psyched to hear from you. Any and all feedback is, of course, more than welcome. Thanks!
I am looking for someone who could help me with a small project involving two Lord of the Rings characters, one canon and one OC. The canon character is Gil-Galad, the last High King of the Noldor and the second character is an OC of mine. I can provide full references as to what she looks like down to her hair color, attire, facial structure, etc. And, of course, I can also provide references as to Gil-Galad's appearance. The two characters would be simply posed (either half body or fully body) with little to no background incorporated. The piece would also be done in full color. My budget for this project is between $90 to $110 USD paid through Paypal. Please post below if you are interested with some examples of your work or note me, but be advised, I am looking for an artist who can interpret these characters realistically. No anime please. The more traditional your style, the better. Have a question about this project? Again, feel free to comment below or note me at anytime. Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!
I am a Brooklyn, NYC native, but I dream of Middle-Earth. I have a B.A. in history, my greatest passion, although I am also a devotee to literature (of almost any kind) and writing. I’m also a horror movie junkie and huge nerd for anything that involves fantasy. While I am certainly not a professional artist, I am a perfectionist and I take my hobbies very seriously. I am a crocheter and a cosplayer and absolutely obsessed with costuming.
Thanks so very much for visiting my page. If you have any questions or comments about the pieces in my gallery, please feel free to shoot me a note. I always love hearing from fellow deviants.
