If Míriel never married Finwë or had a child, if she put all her energy into her craft instead of giving birth to Fëanor . . . what might have happened?
Originally started for Legendarium Ladies April 2016, finished for LLA 2017.
Written for the 2016 general prompt for April 11th:
“General Prompt: Everybody Lives!
In particular in the Silmarillion (but not only there), many characters suffer an untimely death, and many times that is before they can unfold their full potential and change the story through their actions. For today’s prompt we’re asking you to go down the AU road and imagine what might happen if one of Tolkien’s female characters (or more than one!) had lived ... Explore how their continued existence might have led to different stories, for better or worse.”
Also inspired by the 2016 picture prompt for April 6th: Gold Mask from Venice by Jozef Sedmak.
