This certain ficlet was a bit difficult to write because I retold a scene which Tolkien described very well: the meeting of Aragorn and Arwen. However, I am 99.9% sure I didn't copy any direct text, other than the poem, of course.
So, I'm hoping that you all will still enjoy this shorter ficlet, even though it's a scene we all know well. Reviews especially appreciated on this one, since it's the retelling of a very famous (and already detailed) meeting.
Alone he walked the woods of Rivendell, and he sang his heart out to the world. His being was filled with happiness; just yestereve he had discovered that he was not Estel, son of an unknown father, but that he was Aragorn, son of Arathorn, heir of Isildur and Chieftain of the Dúnedain. This discovery made him proud and his heart light.
Note: The original scene of this can naturally be found in Tolkien’s Appendices of LOTR. The only direct lines from there are “Tinúviel, Tinúviel”, and the Lay of Lúthien/Leithian, whichever you prefer, and can be found in Book I of FOTR. Otherwise this scene is a complete retelling and I was careful not to take any direct lines from Tolkien’s version while still maintaining canon and the flow :-)
