Story Notes:

Written for the Hero's Journey challenge, the simple version with three prompts:

  • Show what ordinary life looks like
  • Introduce a frenemy
  • A character has something everyone wants.

The second and last prompt fit really well into what I had already planned for this story, so that was a good thing.

I tried to keep it as canon as possible but there are small details in the realm of AU. Especially with dialogue I took some liberties, though I tried to keep to the spirit of the text.

Ungoliant is the hero in this story, even though her character is anything but heroic. What I tried to do is give her some more personality, to fleshen out her character, and I hope I succeeded in that. One might even consider her a strong female character, but I leave that to the reader.

Warning for killing the Trees and Finwë, but that's it, I think.
