Tolkien quote of the day:

Galadriel was born in the bliss of Valinor, but it was not long, in the reckoning of the Blessed Realm, before that was dimmed; and thereafter she had no peace within. For in that testing time amid the strife of the Noldor she was drawn this way and that. She was proud, strong, and self-willed, as were all the descendants of Finwe save Finarfin; and like her brother Finrod, of all her kin the nearest to her heart, she had dreams of far lands and dominions that might be her own to order as she would without tutelage. Yet deeper still there dwelt in her the noble and generous spirit of the Vanyar, and a reverence for the Valar that she could not forget. From her earliest years she had a marvellous gift of insight into the minds of others, but judged them with mercy and understanding, and she withheld her good will from none save only Feanor. In him she perceived a darkness that she hated and feared, though she did not perceive that the shadow of the same evil had fallen upon the minds of all the Noldor, and upon her own.

Probably been done before, and perhaps better, but Bill the Pony gave my elbow a nudge this morning, causing me to spill my tea, and he licked up all the sugar from the bowl, and is likely to make a complete nuisance of himself if I don't write down his story.

bullet Till We Have Faces by Antane Last Updated: 9/14/2014
Written for the LOTR GenFic Community September 2011 "Hit the Books" challenge in which we were given a title of a famous book to use as our title. This is from a book by C.S. Lewis, but otherwise is unrelated. The bunny that came out of this was what if Boromir’s funeral boat found the Straight Road and arrived at the Lonely Isle and his body remained incorrupt until after Frodo came. NOW CONTINUED! Faramir is also in the story, not so much a physical presence, but he is most definitely here.
