|Dear Mirkwoodmaiden |
So good that you included the Beornings in your story. I love how open and direct you show them. Dalaria is so wise and caring, and it is so good how with her way she insists and in the end helps Legolas. She reminds me of somehow of Holdlith in Destiny's Child.
And Daria is so sweet.
The nightmare is really sad.
I like the respect and high regard those people have for Thranduil, and how they bring it to his son.
Take care, stay safe

Hello! I was looking for something to happen in the Misty Mountains on their way to Imladris and as I was reading my research said that the Beornings held the High Pass open during the Ring War and the High Pass was the route our four intrepid elves were taking so they were going to cross paths. Also somewhere I read that they had fought alongside Thranduil in Northern Mirkwood so there you have it. The Beornings respect strength and skill at arms which Thranduil most definitely has.
Beorn seems a straight forward character in the book and the Hobbit films so I made them a very direct people. You live in the mountains there is no time for beating around the bush!
Dalaria is definitely a wise-woman. Much in the same mold as Holdlith. These omen see more, they pay attention to the world around them and to people. They carry their empathy with them as a way to heal.
I wanted to somehow to make reference to Legolas' mum but I was unsure how until this little section just kinda wrote itself.
Thanks for writing!
