    Summary

    "Yet Galadriel ... remained long in Doriath and received the love of Melian, and abode with her and there learned great lore and wisdom."

    From her mother, Galadriel had learned grace, composure, and how to veil the teeth of diplomacy in silk and soft words. From her grandmother, she learned when to bare those teeth. From her cousin she learned the value of will and the power of independence.

    Her ambition was her own, and carefully stoked.

    (And from Melian she learned nothing at all.)

    Summary

    Set pre-Hobbit but using characterizations that take both from Jackson's films and Tolkien's books, this is a little romance fanfic about Tauriel and Thranduil. It takes place sometime during the growing Mirkwood spider problem and deals with mostly internal elven affairs, but I may expand to include the happenings of the Hobbit as a tie-in.
