Bits of Elven Glass by Himring

[ - ]

Ficlets that form part of an attempt to weave the different accounts of the making and the history of the Elessar into a coherent narrative.

rn

As the different accounts of the Elessar in the History of Middle-Earth are not compatible with each other, this narrative is not canonical, but neither is it completely AU.

rn

The title alludes to the sneering description of Aragorn's Elessar as a "piece of elvish glass" by the Mouth of Sauron in  Return of the King.
