    Summary

    After the Éothéod revolt against the Wainriders, the northern tribes seek to form strong alliances with their neighbors. Lord Frumgar tasks his son Fram to lead the delegation to Imladris. With him, he brings gold, fine horses, and two young thralls chosen by his father to be given to Lord Elrond himself. Elrond is conflicted to say the least.

    Regardless, an alliance must be struck. Prince Fram brings news of darkness spreading across Rhovanion which is already leaking up into Greenwood. Elrond fears it will soon reach Imladris. Once more, Elves and Men must put aside their differences and unite...or fall.

    AU. No graphic depictions. Mature themes.

    Summary

    “Your lords might wonder why you spend so much time with Fëanáro’s son, my king,” he said.

    It was a risky move, but whether Fingolfin responded with anger at Maedhros’s impertinence or with concern about his image, he would still leave.

    “Am I not allowed to speak to my nephew?” he asked.

    Maedhros is very busy on the day of Fingolfin's coronation.

    Summary

    Finrod makes a strangled sound. He is gold upon gold upon gold: golden hair, golden skin, golden clothes. In the early morning light, he looks like something made of gilt and glitter. Galadriel rises to her feet and casts off her cloak, approaching him slowly.

    It’s been so long.

    Summary

    The figure before him reached up to push back the deep hood they wore, letting moonlight flash off the silver knuckles of their left hand. Turgon gritted his teeth instinctively and then let out a long, quiet breath as the cloth fell back and shadow fled from the planes of a familiar face.

    His uncle’s skin was decorated with a smattering of stress lines, cheekbones framed by a fall of silver-white hair pulled back into a braid. His age and exhaustion were apparent in his eyes and scars, similar enough to Turgon’s own. But his expression remained sharp - as quick and vicious as the claws that the king knew lay inside his famous silver prosthetic.
