Story Notes:

Because this story deals with characters that Tolkien left largely undescribed, I'm taking a lot of creative license in trying to present a plausible resolution, of sorts, to the knotty dilemma of the marriage of Indis and Finwë. I'm trying to stay within the bounds of "canon" to the extent that it is possible. I'm very open to having inconsistencies and canonical errors pointed out to me, some of which I might already be aware of (e.g. I chose to not count Orodreth among Indis's grandchildren although some of Tolkien's writing suggests that he was) but all of which I'm happy to (re)consider.

Thanks for reading!

It's been a very long time since I've worked on this story. This is the first of what I think will be at least a couple of new chapters.
