This story is part of the Melpomaen the Elfling universe.
Ereolas is the reborn King Oropher and is married to Cirdan. They live in Mithlond. He has decided to write his memoirs of when he was King of the Greenwood and also record the details of his life in Mithlond in anecdotal, diary form.
To familiarise yourself with the characters you could read Melpomaen the Elfling first, but it is not necessary.
Here is a brief synopsis of the events leading up to this story:
Melpomaen and Ereolas are Erestor and Legolas’ elflings. Ereolas is King Oropher reborn and so Legolas actually gave birth to his grand ada. Ereolas is able to speak, read, write, be a pain in the ass, as soon as he is born. Shortly after his birth, he demands his old throne back. His parents and the Valar, who prefer Thranduil as king, resist him. Ereolas accepts, in the end, that he will never be a king again and adopts a new hobby: researching and imposing the rules of etiquette. He terrorises everyone with etiquette.
Oropher’s soul mate is Cirdan and when he came of age they were married and moved to Mithlond. Recently, Ereolas has found that he carries the curse of Legolas.

Following on from events in A Light in the East Legolas continues his journey south with Vanimórë, Maglor and the warriors of Sud Sicanna. Sauron hopes to separate the young prince and his son from Vanimórë, and continues to hide behind his assumed identity, and unbeknownst to him, the Mother's concealing power.
Further north, Glorfindel travels with Tindómion, and Legolas' brother Celeirdúr, with Bainalph, the Beautiful Swan. Thranduil, knowing he is acting unwisely, nevertheless sets out on his own, with, he believes, one aim in mind.
All are unaware of the power and love that links them one to the other, and what, in the end, it may come to mean.
This is their journey to A Far, Fierce Sky.

A collection of ficlets written in response to The Silmarillion Writer's Guild back to Middle-earth month 2011, and Back to Middle-earth month 2012.
They are snippets, gapfillers or flesh out events within my Dark Prince/Arc of Fire 'verse.
What would have happened had Legolas not been able to flee to Imladris and Glorfindel when he found he was pregnant? What if he fell into entirely different hands?
After the Last Alliance, Vanimórë, freed for a time from Sauron's control, made himself the ruler of a Sud Sicanna, a wealthy city in the Harad. Five hundred years later, he journeys to Szrel Kain on the Sea of Rhun where rulers of the East are meeting to discuss renewing their attacks upon Gondor. Vanimórë goes to gather information, to keep his finger on the pulse of events.
Legolas, banished from his home, wanders into the hands of a clan traveling back to Rhun after a summer of trading. The Men, afraid he will bring ill-luck on them, mean to sell him, and in lands where the Dark Gods are worshiped Legolas' uniqueness would mean sacrifice, the death of both himself and the child he bears: Glorfindel's son.
He falls instead into the hands of the Dark Prince, the son of Sauron, who understands neglect and abuse only too well...
