    Summary

    Soulmarks were a decidedly mortal phenomenon.

    While most races regarded all elves as a cypher, too removed from the trials of mortality to merit much consideration other than absent-minded awe or jealousy, this much at least was something that everyone knew. Elves didn’t have soulmarks.

    This assessment was largely accurate. It was not, however, the complete truth.

    Summary

    This is the third installment in my post BotFA Everybody lives/Nobody Dies timeline that began with Candy Coated Raindrops, and continued with What Happened at New Years, now part of the Stone, Oak, & Athelas Series.

    In this third story, Prince Fili finally has his say. As the eldest son of Dís, and Thorin Oakenshield's nephew, Fili has always known he was born to be king, and has always done his duty to his office with little protest. After his mother Dís and his little brother KIli defied everyone around them and followed their hearts, Fili was sure his own marriage would be for duty alone.

    Then, he received his first slightly clandestine letter from Lady Sigrid of Dale, and everything began to change.

    Summary

    The rest of the ride passed with Legolas chattering excitedly, continuing to do so as they got out and started inside Bard’s apartment. The chattering, however adorable it was, came to a halt the second they entered the bedroom. There were three people reclined in the room and three sets of eyes locked onto the pair as they stopped in the doorway, one of them a pale blue.

    “Uh oh.”

    “Bard, I would appreciate some warning before you take my son for ice cream this late,” Thranduil says, his voice hard and unforgiving. Bard flinches at the sound of it, wondering if it was too late to hide under the bed and hope they all go away.

    “In my defense,” he states instead,” your son popped up out of my backseat like some kind of dandelion.”

    Summary

    Thranduil's wife passed tragically a year ago, and since then, he has been living vicariously through his neighbors, Bard Bowman and his wife. He imagines their happiness together, and pictures what he and his wife would be like with such happiness if she were still living. Convinced that the Bowmans across the street are happy, he has no idea the strain and turmoil their relationship is about to undergo as Bard's taken a job opportunity that requires he travel intermittently. Feeling unimportant and unwanted by her husband, his wife seeks attention from a man she has only just met, and this chance encounter escalates quickly to a fiercely sexual relationship kept under wraps. Thranduil finds his illusions of a happy couple destroyed one evening when Bard comes to him, wanting advice on losing his spouse. Their relationship grows, too, however, and both men find themselves wondering if what they're feeling for each other is real.

    Summary

    The Men of Middle Earth are all gifted one prophetic vision in their infancy which shows them a key moment in their life. These take the form of Convulsions which rock through their bodies and leave them weakened.

    However it is the Will of the Valar that some of them should be Gifted with the Sight until the end of their days, granting them daily visions through the form of seizures of the brain. Each race experiencing them differently.

    And so it was that Tilda, youngest daughter of Bard the Bowman, came to change the fate of Arda.

    Summary

    Even though there were several groups talking around his paintings, there was one man that stood out from everyone else. The man was planted in front of ‘Love Ablaze,’ the crowd parted around him like the sun surrounded by stars. He was wearing a sharp suit, his long blond hair tucked into a low ponytail. His back was ramrod straight, his hands clenched into fists. Bard stepped next to the man, keeping his eyes on the painting the other was studying so intensely.

     

    ‘Love Ablaze’ was Bard’s saddest painting. He painted it after Sophia’s death, the grief threatening to drown him as he poured his emotions onto canvas. Despair was etched into every line, and he could almost pinpoint the places where he had to smooth over tear tracks with a fresh layer of paint. It always brought back the bone deep anguish of that time, that at this point was more muted pangs of sadness when he smelled her perfume, or waking up to empty sheets next to him. That was why it was one of the few paintings Bard was actually eager to let go.

     

    Bard paints Thranduil’s back and contemplates the past, present, and future.

    Bard showed up at the National Gallery in slacks and a deep blue jumper, tucking in the tails of his button up as he stood at the base of the steps. A lump had formed in his throat.

    Summary

    It was the most beautiful and strange creature Bard had ever seen. It looked to be over 8 feet tall, not including the large antlers adorning it’s head. Bard knew the creature was important just by the way it stood. “Possibly royalty,” he thought, watching the creature collect flowers. Bard had never met such a creature, so he was not sure. But if they had such a thing, Bard thought this particular being could be a prince, or even a king.
