My version of Eöl's tale - what if instead of bringing misery to Aredhel and setting the events in motion, bringing doom over Gondolin, he meets a soulmate that challenges, puzzles and completes him? Someone who would balance him out and dispel his darkness? Not a hero, not a noble elven lady, but an ordinary mortal woman. Why accepting the gift of Ilúvatar might be better than an eternal life in darkness.

Trying to summarize this story has become an ongoing challenge. Here's the latest attempt:
Eru Ilúvatar led the Ainulindalë, the Song of Creation, with fourteen of his most powerful angelic servants. The fifteenth just had to scratch his stylus across a perfect vinyl LP. Everything (and we do mean everything) that has happened since will still fulfill Eru's purpose, but only the All-Father (and the writers of this story) know how. But in the meantime, King Thranduil of the Woodland Realm did not want to go home to the Blessed Land waiting for the Elves. So he and his wood-elves sat in their forest for thousands of years while what used to be called Mirkwood became known as Ireland. Planes flew in the sky. Eejits sometimes wandered past his enchantments. It was all under control, until a New York attorney with an Irish gran decided that it was time for the Right of Return and moved to the edge of a forest near a sleepy one-pub village in County Clare called Lasg'len. And nothing was ever the same again. The Irish are nothing like the Men of Dale.
