    Summary

    There are people who believe that romantic connections are the province of fate and destiny, the result of an alignment of constellations and conditions that bring two people together. Others tend to discuss falling in love as the product of rational decisions that acknowledge attraction and compatibility. Some people, however, seem to think these two seemingly-opposite perspectives are really just two sides of the same coin. Sometimes, after all, destiny just requires that two people make a single choice.

    Summary

    Sweet are the summers on the plains of Yavanna Kementari, and dark hang the clusters of grapes in the Yulmanore, and red is the wine that flows from those happy vineyards. Seldom have mortals tasted such a liquor, which is poured out for the guests of kings, and carried in fair vessels by hands of their sons and their daughters, and flows freely at the great festivals of the Blessed Realm. To some it brings grief and to others gladness of heart, some it inflames to madness and some it lulls to sleep, but to all it brings, for a time, release from care; and shows forth clearly what lies hidden in the heart.

    “No,” said the High King of the Noldor. “You shut up.”

    Summary

    Why did Glorfindel return to Middle-earth? Maybe the Valar decided they needed a messenger. Maybe he felt he still had something to do there and begged them to let him return. Or maybe it went something like this...

    It's the early Second Age and Idril is worried about her grandsons. In the course of this she waylays new arrivals to Valinor, tries to find her footing with her own grandmother, schemes with Tuor, Finrod and Glorfindel, and finally sets a plan into motion.
