Story Notes:

The second chapter is a double drabble written for Amy Fortuna, for a prompt of hers at SWG's Around the Fire Challenge.

The sequence as a whole was written for the prompt series "Signs of Autumn" at Tolkien Weekly and are posted  in order as written, not in strict chronological sequence.

Most of the drabbles are rated "General", but warning for spiders in drabble II and references to PTSD and canonical suicide in drabble VI.

1. Because my Land is Fair by Himring [Reviews - 0] (100 words)

Annael refuses to leave Hithlum.

Set during the journey to Hithlum described in the first chapter of "Such Great Deeds", but all you really need to know is that Beleg was carrying a message from Thingol and that this is set after the arrival of the Noldor in Hithlum.

2. Inspiration by Himring [Reviews - 0] (196 words)

A first meeting between Rian and Annael, just after she has arrived in Hithlum as refugee.

Written for Amy Fortuna, for her prompt: I would like a story about Rían discovering her talent as a singer and songwriter as a young girl. Did she sing any songs about events we're aware of?

Extra warning: possibly triggering for arachnophobia.

Annael tells his fosterling Tuor about times past.
Elves have long memories--and Rian was not the only one of Tuor's family that Annael once knew.

4. The Escape Route by Himring [Reviews - 0] (94 words)

Fingon shows Annael the entrance to the Gate of the Noldor, the secret escape route to the coast. 
It is the time after the Dagor Bragollach. Many Sindar have already fled south.

5. Under the Stars, in Sunlight by Himring [Reviews - 0] (198 words)

Another conversation between Annael and his foster son Tuor:
Of the sun and of elves and men.

Warnings for this drabble: references to PTSD and canonical suicide
