Eating Stones by Marta

[ - ]

In the Akallabeth Tolkien describes a dark religion, instituted by Sauron in Middle-earth during the Second Age, in which Men were encouraged to reject the Valar as the true lords of Arda and worship Melkor/Morgoth instead. This religion was later exported to Numenor and provided some of the "justifications" for Pharazon's attack on the Undying Lands.

rn

This series contains my stories about this dark religion. The first two involve an encounter Aragorn has in Harad. I take the unnamed girl in the first piece to be my OC Fatima in the second piece; they have connected plots but should be readable on their own. Other fics in this series wll provide some useful "background" to how I view the religion of Harad and Numenor.

Often the greatest deeds, those which history most remembers, are not the most difficult. Aragorn finds his limits tested in Harad.

(Warnings for disturbing themes, abuse of religion, implied violence, and just a smidgen of (implied) sexuality.)
