    The good news is that Lan Jingyi has found a mentor, friend, and constant companion through the difficulties in life.

    The bad news is that that’s because he’s been accidentally possessed by the Yiling Patriarch.

    Summary

    Of all the texts that my lord Eärendilion brought with him from Lindon to our new-founded library of Imladris, nothing quite compares to this particular narrative, titled simply “Athrabeth," and I make this claim from long experience as a records-keeper. Its setting, a debate between an unnamed prince and his tormentor, will make it difficult going for even the venturesome of readers: the lightness with which it touches upon several sacred subjects, even more so. All things considered, the ideas presented by the “Athrabeth” are, let us call them, unique, and often seem contradictory to both received wisdom and accepted text-making practices.

    (yes, yes, even considering the highly irregular “Debates with an Adani Wise-woman” most often credited to Finrod Felagund)

    Summary

    They don’t kill each other at the end. Erik was better with his hands, T’Challa better with his claws. That was the problem. They brawled in the dark until the war above them resolved itself, and then what were they meant to do? Erik had started it, the ceasefire. He hadn’t meant to. He’d laughed, because all the bitterness and hatred and frustration in him had boiled to a point where there was nothing left to do but laugh.

    “Now what?” Erik asked, days after and not for the first time. They were miles from Wakanda, walking.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The Sons of Fëanor sat as they had the day before, eating and drinking with silent concentration. As the leaders of the Song, they had borne the brunt of the battle and were depleted, though nowhere near the end of their strength. Finarfin saw that stark endurance, and remembered the proud and beautiful boys he had known a Sea and an Age of the world ago, and mourned in his heart.

    Summary

    There was an Understanding.

    The Understanding was: Her Grace, Lady Sybil Deidre Olgivanna Ramkin, had, on the twelfth of May, married Captain Samantha Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork Watch. It was a very lovely ceremony. There had been cake.
