Rated PG

Printer Friendly: Printer

Stand-alone chapters dealing with my-verse Eldarion and his siblings, growing up in the Fourth Age.

1. Imperfection - The birth of the Reunited Kingdom's first princess.

2. Scion of the Eldar - Eldarion learns a lesson or two.

Story Notes:

In my universe, Princess Celebriel, Aragorn and Arwen's firstborn, is born with cerebral palsy. Of course, Tolkien didn't give us a word for that, and I'm sure the Elves and Gondorians wouldn't have called it that, either, but that's what it is.

Being 'different', Celebriel will of course have a hard time, growing up as a Princess of the Reunited Kingdom...Aragorn's heir for five years, no less. But it is my hope that she'll settle in, and people will recognize her for the good person she is. Her family accepts her, but will Gondor?

Let's find out together, wherever the Muse takes me.

I plan to have all the characters and places I marked show up, but not necessarily all in the same chapter.

Table of Contents

1. Prologue - Reflection by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Reviews - 1] (304 words)

This is about young Aragorn himself, making the decision that will lead him on the path to becoming Elessar. :) Elladan and Elrohir also feature.

2. Imperfection - For Larner by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Reviews - 0] (738 words)

Based (slightly) on the circumstances of my own birth, except Arwen actually gives birth naturally here, and I'm no one's princess but my parents'! Written as a gift-fic for Larner, in honor of her many characters with disabilities: I'm doing my best to write a ficlet for a friend for every day of May in the run-up to my own birthday, May 29. Thank you, Larner, for showing the rest of the fanfic world that not all life is without imperfection. I salute you!

3. Scion of the Eldar - Eldarion learns a thing or two.. by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Reviews - 0] (1262 words)

Intended for Minnie, from the LotR Dfic group as a birthday mathom:

 Targon, the regular tutor, is Aragorn's OC uncle, the (much) younger brother of Arathorn, Aragorn's father. The mention of sisters for Arathorn and Targon is also uncanonical, I think, though Halbarad is a kinsman of Aragorn and so his being a maternal first cousin isn't unreasonable. :) Takes place in FA 19: Eldarion is ten in my-verse, Celebriel is 15, though she doesn't appear this time. Mentions of spanking, though none carried out.


4. Market-Day by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Reviews - 0] (397 words)

Takes place long after the others I've posted. Eldarion and Elboron are King and Steward - or more likely, co-King and Steward...and it's their little ones up to mischief.

5. The King's Feast by Kaylee Arafinwiel [Reviews - 0] (565 words)

At the feast welcoming Princess Celebriel home from her fosterage in Ithilien, the Rohirric ambassador's companion causes a slight issue...For Linda Hoyland as a belated birthday present, 2014. Mention is made of Tahir and Adiva, the Haradric ambassador and his wife. They are Linda's, not mine, but have entered my head-canon as relatives of Karim, Aragorn and Arwen's orphaned ward.
