I haven't read the books for a while, and nothing other than The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings, so thank you.
Oh, I see. That's fairly common knowledge in fic, so I guess I expect everyone to know it. A lot of the backstory in this fic draws fairly heavily from the Silmarillion, so if you have more questions, it's understandable, and I'll try to answer them if they're not spoilers.
I guess I'll have to read the Silmarillion then.
It'll all be explained in the end, so it's not necessary, it's more like people who have read the silmarillion may be able to guess some of the plot in advance.
