A song of welcome (Aya Findekano) by Himring

[Comments - 0] Printer


There is a scene in "Children of Hurin" in which Turin watches Fingon ride over the bridge near his home.
I believe, in canon, this is meant to be about Elves being remote and elusive--but, personally, I can't image Fingon on that bridge in white and silver with his knights unless he were actually dropping in to visit Hurin (or Morwen), even if it was on the way to somewhere else.
So--in my Gloom cycle--he does visit Hurin. ( Turin, I suppose, may be just too young to be in on most of the proceedings.)
Now, maybe Rian was there, too--and what more natural than that, as a maker of songs, she would make a song to welcome him?
And this bit of song here would have sounded a lot better when Rian herself sang it to the tune she had made up--all spontaneously, of course!

Story Notes:

Now with illustration! 

Bunn has done a wonderful painting of this scene, which I'm linking with her permission:


This song came about as I was mulling over a prompt of Amy Fortuna's concerning Rian.
Unfortunately, it doesn't really fit that prompt.

There are bits of Quenya in here, but for some reason Rian gets away with it, despite Thingol's Ban.
(That is, some popular bits of Elvish known from The Lord of the Rings and Fingon's Quenya name.)
