    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

    In the Fifth Age, the last Elves leave Middle Earth sail to Valinor. Erestor is with them, but none of his companions had known that he once belonged to the small group of people Fëanor claimed to be friends with. Reaching Aman, he has to discover that the land of his birth greatly changed.

    Summary

    In the early Fourth Age, Elrond's sons are tricked by their brother into scouting the northernmost coast of Harad for him, and get caught in a storm, from which they find refuge with two friendly travelers who reveal themselves to be quite more than that.

    Maglor and Daeron, in their defense, didn't know those two young men seeking shelter were their grandsons (it's complicated) and that the encounter would upset the carefully-curated calm of their life.

    They make it work.

    A birthday present for nerdvnel, who liked the idea when I came up with it six months ago.

    Summary

    Lúthien turned as she left Doriath, and found Daeron once more.

    Maglor had not intended to find himself on this quest for a Silmaril, no matter how much he loved Daeron.
