Story Notes:

For swilmarillion for the tolkiensecretartexchange Silmarillion-themed Secret Santa. I combined two of your requests, and I hope you don’t mind!


Warnings for some referenced (but minor) rape and homophobia.


And acknowledgements: the title is from Orpheus’ song in the Underworld to get Eurydice back in Orpheus and Eurydice, because I’m obvious like that. A lot of credit for Vaire’s characterization goes to Dawn Felagund’s essay What the Valar Reveal About Gender Roles in Tolkien’s Legendarium. And the post-Mithrim scene owes a lot to the last chapter of Lipstick’s Talking Hurts.


I hope you enjoy this, swilmarillion. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
