Story Notes:
Alatar and Pallando are females. It is a blend of book and movie. The prologue is kind of irrelevant, but it does show how canonically male Alatar and Pallando are females. You do not need to read the prologue for the story to make sense. Later in the Story there will be scenes of intense torture and rape. There will also be greusome infant deaths. Be aware of this please.

1. Prologue by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 2] (2892 words)
The Prologue isn't necessary to read. It just shows how canonically male Alatar and Pallando are females. It's kind of irrelevant to the story, but it's okay.

2. Chapter 1: The Fiery Verse by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (3625 words)
If you didn't read the prologue, it's okay since you didn't have to. This is where the story really begins. I don't know how long Sauron held Gollum and tortured him, but I'm saying about 17 or 18 years. During 3001 and 3017 Aragorn and Gandalf are looking for him and only find him once he was released from Mordor.

3. Chapter 2: The Gardens of Imladris by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (4917 words)
This takes place 16 or 17 years before Frodo leaves Bag End. The reason is because I have Gollum being tortured for that long since no one sees him between 3001, which is when Gandalf and Aragorn start looking for him, and 3017, which is when he is released from Mordor and Aragorn finds him.

4. Chapter 3: Of Feasts, Drunkenness, and Fathers by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (3502 words)
The dance that Eruain does, I have decided, looks very close to the one I will be posting on my blog. The music Glorfindel plays will also be posted there. The Duduka is really a Duduk and they are freaking amazing. :D I also do not intend on keeping a Elladan/OC romance going on for much longer. As much as I love the sons of Elrond, I feel I cannot write interesting storylines for them. A good reminder that this story is currently 15 or 16 years before Frodo sets out and that Alatar and Pallando are females. :D

5. Chapter 4: Too Late by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (1875 words)
I had a lot of trouble deciding the number of Nazgul that would appear in this chapter. I did not want it to be all nine, but I wanted it to be enough that elves would cower slightly in their midst. I'm sorry about the shortness of this chapter, but if I wanted to fit anything else in the chapter it would give away important plot context I would like to reveal later. This is the cliff hanger because the next paragraph I will refocus on Haraduien, who has lacked screen time. :D

6. Chapter 5: An Untimely Arrival by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (1788 words)
Sorry This is short. It's a new point of view and will be intermittenly placed between Eruain's chapters.

7. Chapter 6: Of Men, Fire, and the Sun by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (2266 words)
The Story of Ensnaring the Sun comes from the Winnebago (Hotcāk) Legend of Little Brother snares the Sun. I really liked this story and I felt as if it fit the Haradrim. The talk about sex was inspired by the Game of Thrones scene where Daenyrs (SP?) has the sex conversation with her slave. The scene has credit where it is due.

8. Chapter 7: Trickling Hope and Hallowed Children by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (1935 words)
This has some gruesome details and a R rated murder. Please be advised.

9. Chapter 8: Reality, Dreams; Death, it seems. by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (1900 words)
This is quite the explicit chapter ranging from gruesome death to a very inappropriate sex scene. SO HEED THIS WARNING. >>.

10. Chapter 9: Dark Places by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (1954 words)
In this chapter you will see a little Alatar/Glorfindel action, a little Elf-ception, and the dungeons of Minas Morgul. Delicious, no? By the way, I'm extremely sorry that I did not upload a chapter sooner. I've been ridiculously busy. Thanks, though for all of your views and I encourage you to Review!! Share what things you want to see. I am moving quickly to some real plot instead of just samples, so if you want to see something, ask and your wish may possibly be granted.

11. Chapter 10: Visitors of the Night by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 1] (3529 words)
This chapter marks the progression from the exposition to the rising action.... hopefully. I wish to unite the Fellowship! I miss them and they have seen no action or each other in this fanfic. I'm terrible....

12. Chapter 11: Breath by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (5583 words)
Okay. So this is my last chapter for awhile, unless I have the motivation or the creativity to write one during my hiatus. About this chapter: It is very angsty. If sad deaths bother you, you have been advised. I hope you enjoy and please review. I beg of you!! Oh and this chapter is set five years after the last chapter. Sorry about the timelines and such.

13. Chapter 12: Passion Play by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (3093 words)
So I was able to write, revise, and upload this while doing college visits. Yay! I am sorry about this chapter being very pregnant with dialog. Many characters experience logorrhea. And I have learned, after reading some essays on the Lord of the Rings, that the period between when Frodo was given the Ring by Bilbo and when he actually left the Shire was 17 years and not 15-16, which bumps all of my story back two years, poop, which means as of right now there is seven years left before the ring quest. So stay with me please. Read and Review. I want to make this story better, but that will only happen if you critique me. :D

14. Chapter 13: Stockholm: unyielding love by PlaguedPorcelain [Reviews - 0] (3435 words)
A/N: I finally uploaded again! So sorry this took forever to get done. This chapter is exploring the Stockholm syndrom and propelling the story further. This chapter contains a huge dream scene. Finally, we may be seeing parts of the Fellowship before chapter 20. Hope you like this and REVIEW!
