I would too. So what's her story? Is she an Elf or a woman of men? She reminds me of one of the shieldmaidens of Rohan but with dark hair.

Wir haben direkt zwei. Das ist schon Luxus! Vor allem, wenn man nicht immer selbst zeichnen muss. ;-)

I owend it long before you were born, dear Aragorn. ;.) When it was unbroken and still had the name Narsil. So go back to your Hobbits, son of the 3rd age! =D ;-)

This is such a wonderful picture!

Is there any way to find out more about your tolkien-related characters?

Hm, we´re playing with this Group for over 4 years now (one day the week). There are a lot of storys to tell and we´re playing with the idea to make a fanfiction novel out of it one day.

Etain (wich is my character) is the bastard daughter of Barahir, now king of the people of Dorthonion.
She first was a messenger by horse. Now she is a military leader. 

She and the Noldor assassin Jaquar fell in love what was the beginning of an epic tragedy in which Sauron plays a leading role.

The four of us play "shadows of the Valar". Their human, elvish an dwarfen surrogates on Arda. So we´re involved in many dangerous quests, as killing a balrog and things like that. ;-)


Is there something more that you like to know in special? :-)

And now you're making me even more curious :) Judging by the setting you put your characters into the idea of fanfiction novel sound just great. I know I would read it.

Bastard daughter of Barahir? Sing me up ^^ Epic tragedy bron from a love between a woman and a noldor elf - that gives me some serious Aegnor and Andreth vibes which is actually awesome since they're one of my favorite Tolkien pairings.

Would that be too much if I said that I would like to hear it all from the very beginning? :)
But I would settle for some more background into about Etain? How she came to be? Where she grew up? What's her personality like? Simple stuff like that

Actually we were witnesses of the end of Andreth and Aegnor. ;-)
That was before our own lovestory has started.

Hm, let me see: Etain is a very brave but kind one. Very charismatic, too. She cares a lot about others and never looses hope. She´s the voice of the group, the one who negotiates and does all the talking.
Jaquar is in many ways exactly her counterpart. He´s sober, taciturn and very grim.
At first he fell in love with her, but she did´t love him back. That was the first tragedy! She was in a relatinoship with his childhood friend Mako but finally her feelings for Jaquar rew strong.

For her there was no way out of this, so she ended her life and Jaquar followed her...

I have to say, that in our version the songs of creation are existing all at the same time. One beneath the other. Differentz versions of possible realities. And as the shadows of the Valars we can chane the songs in some kind of way.

So, we died and in the next song, Mako was only a friend and the both of us became lovers.

But to change the song wasn´t a good idea nevertheless. We have to carry ALL of the memories. From the actuell live and the others bevore and sometimes we didn´t really know who we are...

To be continued on another day. Otherwise it become already a novel. ;-)
