I think I remember reading this a long time ago, but the story was never finished. 

I hope the fact that you're re-posting means it will be concluded!

Thank you, Nath and Jay, for your comments.

Nath: I'm sure that at one point, I was spending far more time on linguistic research than on actually writing this.  Just so you know where my real interest lies...

Jay: Yes, this is an old one.  A January 2003, to be precise.  But after revising all the old chapters, I've started working on it again, and have chapter 5 planned and underway.  New stuff to be posted soon.

My, what a tangled bit of interlace this is!  Poor Elrohir.  See what happens when you aren't exposed to Gallifreyans when you're young and impressionable?

A nice job on the earliest Elves, and on the implications of the cultural changes he made.  Presumably the Second People (and the, ahem, Dwarves Wink ) would have showed up at some point anyway . . . or has the whole overarching Song changed?

I look forward to finding out as you go on!

Cheers--

very interesting.  I am quite looking forward to seeing "Fainaur" grappling with silmarills. And just who are the 'eneny' in this reality?  I have some suspicions...

Thank you for your comments, Adaneth and Gwynnyd.

Since you both brought up similar points, about Men and Dwarves and the unnamed "enemy" here, all I have to say is... who might Morgoth have targeted after Sauron failed to corrupt the Elves? Nyeh heh.

You're just trying to scare me, aren't you?  Rolling my eyes

(Pardon me . . . .  I have to go build a sea-going fortress.)
