    Summary

    Yara is a Syrian refugee, and well, life doesn't get much shittier than that, does it? Well, unless you're a Syrian refugee who suddenly finds herself in a place where no one understands what she's saying, there is no wi-fi... and how the hell did she even get there? Through all the gloom the stars are twinkling, just like the eyes of the people around her.

    A good fic if you like elves, language barriers, and OC's who break the mould. Not as depressing as the tags seem. Actually quite uplifting. Also, not a mary-sue, and not a tenth-walker, but the fellowship will come into play. Bear with me :)

    EDIT: So, I've noticed this is definitely going to end up being, well, long. It's turning out to be a story just as much about finding your place in the world as it is about finding adventure in Middle-Earth. I hope you enjoy it, anyway, and if you don't, feel free to leave constructive criticism :)

    I hope the language setup works for you. Please critique my Quenya and Sindarin. I have no clue about Swedish or Arabic, sooo... not even attempting those.

    Summary

    Imagine how pissed off you would be if you somehow ended up in Middle Earth in time to help, but you didn’t speak Westron. Or Sindarin. Or Khuzdul. All you have are proper nouns, and some random phrases like Mellon, and Amralime, and, oh yeah, the inscription from the One ring. because that’s going to go over well when you start spouting off long forgotten verse in the black tongue of Mordor….
    So instead of eloquently explaining yourself and saving lives and falling in love with a character of your choice, you have to chase them around like a slightly more verbose Hodor, trying to learn a language and keep the dumb bastards alive.
    ------------------
    Well, it had to happen to someone eventually, and Pissed Off is definitely the way to describe it when it happens to her. But she still tries to do her duty to the fandom and keep the Durins alive just in case it isn't a nightmare after all.

    Summary

    «S-sold?»
    Emma Swan knew that, since Madame Mills had taken her away from that horrible foster home when she was thirteen, that day would come. Only, she didn’t expect it to come so soon.
    «Bought, purchased; in your case, married,» Cora Mills replied with her usual sugary smile, lips as red as the sins she provided.

    ***

    When Emma is bought and sent off to Drogheda, she expects to be the wife of a disgusting man. What she doesn't expect is that her husband is Killian Jones, renowned artist. Trying to be the perfect wife Madame Mills had taught her to be, Emma will soon discover Killian's secret agenda as well as feelings she had never felt before, feeling that she can't understand.
    All her life she'd been told what a good wife should do, how she should be, but how can she do that when she doesn't know who she is if not an empty shell? And why does she feel this pull towards Killian? She shouldn't. She doesn't know how to love, and her husband surely doesn't love her.

    PLEASE READ WARNINGS!
