    Summary

    There, in the farthest ship, like a reflection at the bottom of a deep well, he saw that Elrond still brought up the rear. Implacable as the stars’ map in the night, silhouette unmistakable: sword slung over his back with its hilt-wrappings fluttering in the firestorm, one hand shielding his eyes from flying hair and ash, driving the fleet before him in the foam of Elros’s wake.
     
    Elros in the aftershock of the sinking of Beleriand, creeping realization and impending doom, and, as always, a twin brother. For the prompt: "One foot in another world"

    Summary

    For even after the ruin the hearts of the Dúnedain were still set westwards; and though they knew indeed that the world was changed, they said: 'Avallónë is vanished from the Earth and the Land of Aman is taken away, and in the world of this present darkness they cannot be found. Yet once they were, and therefore they still are, in true being and in the whole shape of the world as at first it was devised.'

    Summary

    The originals of the following pages were received in a bundle, arranged in an approximate order but bound only in the temporary fashion customary for field notes in the early 1500s. I have transcribed them for your archives, though certain elements, such as the flora pressed between some of the pages or the stains on others, are irreproducible and I have noted them accordingly. The headings are mine, and the transcription also includes my commentary on some of the more obscure points in the text as well as my reproduction of the original marginalia. Although the identities of the respective authors were evident from the handwriting in the original, in this copy I have taken the liberty of inserting indications as to their identity.
