NOTE: this story is currently being rewritten and new chapters can (for now only) be found
The link directs you to Faerie, a new tolkien fanfiction archive where you may find many familiar writers and stories.
For those of you who prefer to read complete stories I leave the old version here; just click next to start reading. However, the obvious point of the rewrite is to improve the story and I hope you'll check it out. Main story line will be much the same, but I plan to fiddle a lot with the details. I myself like to think there should be enough new content to satisfy those that enjoyed the first version.
