    Disclaimer: Borrowing the characters with unwavering love.
    Characters: ECs and OCs from the Trek and Tolkien worldscapes.

    Thanks to the incomparable @Mira_Jade for these opening forays and for introducing me to the AMAZING songstress Eurielle. [face_love]


    Arwen's Promise - BLOWN AWAY!


    Luthien's Lament

    Songstress: Eurielle



    ~
    Arwen's eyes were like the stars at twilight, glimmering and luminous. Her spirit resolute & her heart not easily won... but when Elessar captured her notice, her heart was not long in holding back from a life-altering choice. Her promise was long in the fulfilling, and often they despaired of its happy fruition. But when they finally were able to join lives as they had done their hearts in the vibrant forest, the outcome was all they could have dreamed. As the years unfurled like golden blossoms, neither had cause to regret that promise.




    In the unmarred and eternally glorious Valinor, the Valar and Maiar were witness to all sorts of marvels, not least the two unmatched Trees of silver and gold! Tragedy touched them but left the land unscarred, thankfully, a bastion of Light and Serenity.

    But nothing, no one served to move their compassionate essences more than the selfless unswerving devotion of Luthien Tinuviel... They granted her request because of her undeniable selfless love so that her soul could intertwine with that of her once-lost but now-regained love.

    SQUEE!!!

    What a gorgeous start to this collection! Honestly, I went to quote specific parts, but it's the whole here that's just so beautiful. Lùthien's devotion; Arwen's faith - both are such beautiful mirrors of each other, in so many ways, the least of which being the depth of their loves. What a beautiful look at one of Tolkien's greatest feats in story telling. [face_love] =D=


    I can't wait to see what you have to share with us next! [face_mischief] :D

    Nyota hums "April in Paris" as she mixes chocolate chip waffles.

    "Mom, what's that song?" Jenessa asks.

    "It's a classic ballad. I never knew the charm of spring, never missed a warm embrace until ... April in Paris."

    Jenessa smiles. "It's pretty."

    "Yes," Nyota says dreamily, "And the chestnut trees in blossom at sunset are also exquisite."

    "Were you there, then?" Grayson asks coming in to eat the raw batter.

    Nyota's eyes grow even more warmly reflective. "Your Dad and I went there on a vacation more than once ... It holds a sweet meaning for us."

    Jenessa and Grayson grin at one another.

    They know their folks are unabashedly still twitterpated, although naturally their Dad's basking is ... understated.

    of Melian

    The glory of the 2 trees, Laurelin and Telperion, stirred the melody in Melian's heart. Her voice lifted in sweet praise of such resplendence.

    When they were darkened, her song ceased until ...

    She ventured to Middle-Earth & Nam Elmoth. There, she was stirred by the soft starlit serenity. Her voice trilled and nightingales joined her, as formerly. The sweet liquid notes filled the forested glades.

    On an evening like many others, Elu Thingol came into the wood glens to enjoy the transition from dusk to moonrise.

    There the two encountered one another, he and Melian, and their hearts bound themselves one to the other for all time to come.

    From this unique and wondrous union would arise those of unparalleled valor and loveliness.

    Character Focus: Eowyn

    She loves the open rolling meadows and riding her very fast steed. The flowers are blooming and spring is in the air .... Or it is high summer and the meadlowlarks spill forth their liquid songs ... Or it is autumn and the trees drop their red-gold leaves.

    She finds freedom in the swift rides, letting the anxiety over her uncle and her antipathy for Grima slip away. She confides her feelings in her brother, Eomer, who trusts her judgment and keeps a careful eye on all that transpires at Court.

    So it is when Gandalf comes and liberates Théoden from the external tangle of mental fog, she feels a surge of relief and gratitude, even as Aragorn stirs emotions and dreams Eowyn, as a Shieldmaiden, never thought to espouse.

    A/N: Continuing with Eowyn's story arc :cool:

    ~

    Eowyn felt a flush of pride and purpose as she was chosen to guard those who were taking refuge as the warriors sallied forth. She knew it was an indicator of her prowess and courage, things she possessed in no small measure.

    When the army came back victorious, she congratulated her liege and those she considered dear friends as well as her near kin.

    She spoke softly to Aragorn offering thanks and saying she felt he was a harbinger of all good things ...

    He was heartened by her fair words but had to gently dissuade her from viewing him as free of heart and soul, able to be pledged to another, to be the source of pleasant romantic reveries.

    Eowyn felt a pang at this, for she had never deigned to indulge in such before now. Her heart had only begun to stir, only to be urged to be stilled.

    Not that such dissuasion was done in a cruel way, but it still pierced her deeply.

    She thus felt her only recourse was to seek a valiant path to glory on the field of battle.

    In Minas Tirith, word of momentous happenings flew from one person to the next.

    A brave warrior had actually confronted the fearsome Witch-King, and it had turned out not to be a gentleman Rider of Rohan but a fair shieldmaiden!

    One of the Halflings had been in her company and had dealt a telling blow as well to the adversary!


    She had suffered grave injury and it was doubted she would survive, but her brother and others from the battlefront had gotten her to the Healers Hall as quickly as might be, but whether or not it would suffice was uncertain.

    It was not something either Faramir or Eowyn looked for, but friendship became love, and the depths of despair became joy unbounded and hearts finding a true haven.

    They settled in the fair region of Ithilien and found a respite of peace and happiness for many long years.

    Eowyn marveled at how a seemingly impetuous choice to join the battle had led to her finding her heart's long desire.

    Bright as the sun, soft as the moon, the light of their love's journey progressed and pervaded.
