In the High King's Secret Service  by Fiondil
240 years after the last Vanya left Tirion-on-Túna for Vanyamar, High King Ingwë sends a delegation back to the first city of the Eldar to negotiate a trade agreement with the Noldor. Among those in the delegation is a newly made loremaster named Valandur. This is his story. My thanks to Alassiel and Ellie for the betas. This one is for you, Ellie, because you asked.
