Rated PG

The year is F.A. 515, and it’s Yule on the island of Balar. Or how a little Noldor pragmatism changed the fate of the world.

Tree and Flower Awards, Elves, First Place


Story Notes:

Written for Oshun for the 2012 Yule Fic Exchange.

Request: I would like a wintertime celebration in First Age Middle-earth, featuring any Finwëans (except Turgon or any alleged daughters of Finwë; indulge me it's the holidays!).

1. The Tapestry by Keiliss [Reviews - 6] (3927 words)

I’ve gone with the familiar ‘Yule’ for the celebration, a word that defines itself – a time for family and of hope renewed. 

Gil, Gil-galad, Ereinion – decisions, decisions. I use Gil when I write, and the flavour of the story changes slightly when I switch it to Gil-galad before posting. In his own head, he is Gil, and this is his POV, so in the end I let it stand. He is always Ereinion to Galadriel.

Itarillë = Idril (yes, I know you know that *g*)

Happy 2013, Oshun.
