The Song of the Sword by Tanis

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

In this stand-alone sequel to Breath of an Elf, Legolas' song is warped beyond recognition and Aragorn seeks a way to either revive or replace it.  The story took 3rd place in the June 2013 Teitho *Weapons* challenge.

 

If you prefer your fan fiction to adhere strictly to canon, I highly recommend you give this a pass as it is a story of the reforging of Narsil entertwined with some what-if fantasy elements.

Table of Contents

Estel, having recently acquired the knowledge of his heritage, sets out on a course of self-discovery.  He gets a bit more than he bargained for when he hires a ship and crew to make a pilgrimage voyage to the home of his ancient ancestors, Meneltarma. 

A/N:  This is a coming-of-age story with no factual basis in canon beyond the receiving of the tokens of the line of Isildur.  No characters have been significantly harmed in the writing of this story, but their canon may have been reintrepreted at bit in order to serve the purposes of the author.  If you are a canon Nazi, you will not appreciate the waste of your time; please employ your back key now.

This story was begin during the 2010 B2MEM challenges under the working title - Self-discovery.  It was just finished and will post here by chapters as its reedited.

Feature Breath of an Elf by Tanis

Rated G
[Reviews - 2]
Table of Contents

The aftermath of a rescue mission in which the rescuer had to redefine his defintion of right and wrong, good and evil.  This is a tag - with permission - to Beth's 1st Place Teitho Challenge story ...and it was done - for the challenge Good & Evil.  Reading that first will enhance the reading of Breath of an Elf tremendously, though this story was purposely reworked to make it stand-alone.
