    Summary

    There was already an oath that controlled elves before the one Fëanor made in FA 1495. One that drove the Eldar from Cuiviénen and gave them hope for a new life; one that enabled the Valar to exert greater control than ever before; one that took all semblance of choice and control from fourteen elves in return for the greater good.

    "Then Manwë said to the Valar: 'This is the counsel of Ilúvatar in my heart: that we should take up again the mastery of Arda, at whatsoever cost, and deliver the Quendi from the shadow of Melkor.' Then Tulkas was glad; but Aulë was grieved, foreboding the hurts of the world that must come of that strife." (J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion)

    Fifteen elves swear to bear children for the Valar in exchange for the protection of their race, and thus the Maiar come into being. This story follows the ramifications of that choice from the Years of the Trees through the Fifth Age of Middle-Earth.

    Summary

    The impossible happened – a Silmaril has been stolen from Morgoth’s crown. Maedhros decides to reunite the People of Beleriand against the Enemy and attack him while he is still unprepared (which is by no means less impossible). Meanwhile, in the hidden city of Gondolin, Lord Glorfindel of the Golden Flower pursues the meaning of his recurring nightmares, only to find himself in the centre of a secret ploy against the ever-growing power of Maeglin Lómion in the King’s Council.

    The People of Beleriand are astir; and as the strings of our heroes’ fates tangle, a dark shadow creeps above the North – the Fifth Battle approaches. And to what end, no one could dream...

    Summary

    Middle-earth, 21st century.

    All the elves have departed to Aman since a long time and have been forgotten.

    In the United States, conflicts between protesters are increasing, supporting or decrying the inauguration of the new president of the country, meanwhile in Los Angeles, troublemakers seem to take advantage of the situation to attack the population. Organized in gangs, they attack people or residential areas, killing across the region. But while the LA police seem to be finally taking over them and preventing the actions of these bands, other states begin to report the same phenomena and soon, new countries are affected by this movement which seems to spread at high speed despite the interventions of various security forces.

    Summary

    Terre du Milieu, 21ème siècle.

    Tous les elfes ont rejoints Aman depuis longtemps et ont été oubliés.

    Aux Etats Unis, les conflits entre manifestants se multiplient, soutenant ou d’énonçant l’investiture du nouveau président du pays tandis qu’à Los Angeles, des fauteurs de troubles semblent profiter de la situation pour s’en prendre à la population. Organisés en gangs, ils s’attaquent à des personnes seules ou des zones résidentielles, commettant des meurtres en série partout dans la région. Mais, alors que la police de L.A semble reprendre la main et prévenir les actions de ces bandes, d’autres états commencent à signaler les mêmes phénomènes et bientôt, de nouveaux pays se retrouvent touchés par ce mouvement qui semble se propager à grande vitesse malgré l’intervention des forces de sécurités diverses.

    Summary

    Oropher, one of the Generals in the army of Doriath, now stands as first to lead the soldiers who march under his Banner. Among his most loyal warriors, his words mean more than law. With blistering fury, he stands his ground where others have no more courage to fight. Others follow him into the fire, a storm of arrows and ruthless battles. Always for victory and always behind him.

    When the tide changes, Oropher finds himself in a game he didn't know was in motion. Past decisions and actions come crumbling down on him when the play for power casts a dark shadow on reality, twisting it mercilessly, and Oropher’s green eyes will burn with ardent fire, showing everyone that they were right to be afraid. He brings no forgiveness and for the wrongs against his family, the world will burn.
