Story Notes:



1. What Uncle Glorfi Says... by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Comments - 0] (272 words)

Written in tribute to Atto Fiondil's Glorfindel, and to his story "STING: Blades of Destiny", following on a few years later.

While Idril and her son spend time together in her solar, Idril finds Glorfindel isn't quite as careful around her boy as he could have been...

B1 "Bad Language"

2. The Steward's Tale by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Comments - 0] (602 words)

Originally written for B2MEM 2011 prompt 6 "Greed", this is posted here for B5 "Ethnocentrism and Prejudice" and because I intend to write more about what followed on from it. It's been edited slightly from its original form to reflect things I've learned in the past nearly-six years.

Text in italics is from the Silmarillion and not owned by me. What, then, did Elmo, Steward and brother of Elu Thingol, make of his brother's meeting with the son of Barahir?

3. Interlude in the Poppy Garden by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Comments - 0] (811 words)

The next few chapters are a sequel to "The Steward's Tale" but shift POV away from Elmo. These are co-written between Emma and myself. The tale of Beren and Luthien continues in Doriath...I3 - Acceptance and Change.

4. Forward to Neldor by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Comments - 0] (751 words)

Chapter three of "The Steward's Tale", Celepharn and Neldiel are Celeborn's cousin and his wife, mine and Emma's OCs. I2 - Laws

5. The Princess' Speech by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Comments - 0] (793 words)

Luthien addresses her family, unwilling to take her imprisonment quietly - and Neldiel isn't about to take this quietly, either.

O2 - Etiquette

6. The (In)Justice of the King by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Comments - 0] (799 words)

Nimloth and Neldiel share their anger at Luthien's plight - but Elu isn't having any of it.

7. Thoughts of Kings by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Comments - 1] (540 words)

Celepharn and Neldiel consider the Mortal Beren, and where his path may take him.
