Purple-tinted memories by Eepox Purple-tinted memories by Eepox
"In her slumber, purple-tinted memories came to her. The floral scents of Ashenvale, strong in the wake of afternoon rain. Someone was holding her hand, the grip firm but kind and warm. Looking up, she recognized her adoptive father, Curuf. The rugged face of the old hunter had faint concern and determination written on it as he glanced down, giving the girl half his height an encouraging smile and a gentle squeeze. When she was younger, she hadn't understood the subtle nuances of his expression. But she understood them now.

She gazed around. They were treading the winding leaf-mottled road toward a once familiar village, the lodges with distinctive curved rooves watching over the serene lake by which they stood. The intricate designs of wooden adorments on the buildings mirrored on the water across which wisps raced. With the hindsight of her adult self, she sensed this was one of the trips where she was brought to mingle with the other kids, even if her guardian always concealed the fact. Though his ward was as smart as the others of her age, her emotional side came across as undeveloped and inhibited - she had an unusually passive personality for any child he'd seen. Curuf hoped that the company of other young might be the cure, perhaps blaming himself was her condition the result of them living by themselves further away in the woods."



Listened to Ashenvale music for hours while painting this, wanted to try capture the magic :)

This is beautiful, great work.
The atmosfere really compliments the shortstory you've created, well done.
Am I correct to assume that the village they're walking next to is Astranaar, because that would fit the surroundings very well.

Thank you for the comment!

I am not sure if the town is Astranaar or not - could be, or some unnamed little village faded into history :)
