    Summary

    Looking at an old map of Beleriand, you may feel like Maglor ruled the tiny strip of land between the Little and the Greater Gelion – that would be the one labelled as “Maglor’s gap”, stuck between Himring and Thargelion; but in those times the Exiles held the Siege, encircling the Thangorodrim, and Maglor ruled the eastern link of the choking chain, from Lothlann to the northernmost foothills of the Ered Luin. I meant to ride as far north as I could, to where the Ered Luin almost met the great, red mountain range that was Morgoth’s stony kingdom.
    We are not there yet. We are still leaving Himring, riding down the stony path with goat herds flanking us.
     
    Finrod visits the Gap of Maglor, discovers life at the frontiers of the Noldorin realms is painted in shade of grey, and that some secrets should remain secrets.

    MAJ 09/13: After receiving many kind comments, I have decided to add a second part to this fic!
    Maj 09/27: The second arc is finished! The Quest for the Secret reaches Middle Earth, and we meet a new narrator!

    Summary

    Tilion of the silver bow loved starlight and the hunt and the shining dew of Telperion in the gardens of Estë, and so it's not much of a surprise when he falls for Tyelkormo son of Curufinwë as well.

    Summary

    Just after the fall of Eregion and the death of Celebrimbor, Celebrían came to Imladris and met Elrond for the first time. Elrond first saw Celebrían then and loved her, but 'said nothing of it'. But how did things seem to Celebrían ? And how did things go, over a thousand years later, when Elrond finally told Celebrian that he loved her?

    Summary

    As the Ringbearers prepare to depart from Middle Earth, one last question still weighs on Elrond's mind. Gandalf is not sure how to answer it. Six thousand years ago at the Havens of Sirion, the twin sons of Feanor found an answer for themselves: one that spoke of little pity and of no hope at all.

    Elrond is not willing to accept it, and Gandalf wonders.
