    Summary

    A tale that borrows imagery elements and certain archetypes from fairy tales, with an especial nod to Beauty and the Beast, to create a story of King Thranduil's wife. It does not follow the assumptions of the Peter Jackson movies. Only possibilities remaining open from Tolkien's writings are considered here. It is my answer to the question of, why do we know nothing of Legolas' mother/Thranduil's wife? Everyone assumes that she died, and that Thranduil was bereaved. But what if the truth is that the path of her life was very different than what we would have imagined, and she simply never occupied the place in which we expected to find her?
    Scenes with mild violence, attempted (unsuccessful) sexual assaults, references to the ordinary pursuits of hunting game, especially deer. There is a version of this story published under my same username on fanfiction.net WITHOUT ADULT CONTENT and is rated "teen". If you would prefer to read the story without any bedroom moments, head on over. The story is published here as it was meant to be read.
    I would like to give special thanks to Lilith diLibri, beta reader extraordinaire for this story!! As always, kudos are nice and comments are nicer :-)

    Summary

    So, what was Galadriel doing near the end of the First Age, as her kinsmen died and their realms fell into ruin?

    (The answer is presented as a 250-word ficlet, which is also an acrostic -- in the sense of a poem, word puzzle, or other composition in which certain letters in each line form a word or words. Since this is not a poem, it is sentences that matter here, not lines. Oh, and there are three phrases to be found: a preliminary clue, and two snarky solutions.

    Of course, not everyone likes puzzles. Those who do not can still enjoy the ficlet -- and then go on to read the solutions in the endnotes of Chapter Two.)
