1. The Revised Tale of Aragorn and Arwen
The Revised Tale of Aragorn and Arwen
The young Estel was but twenty years of age when he returned to Rivendell after sharing many adventures with Elrond’s sons. It was now that Elrond deemed right the time to tell him of his famous lineage, and called him by his true name of Aragorn.
The next day at sunset, Aragorn walked through the forest, singing, for his heart was glad and full of hope. And as he sang the Lay of Lúthien, it seemed to him as if the subject of his melody appeared before him. She was beautiful and ethereal as the Imladris twilight and she wore a crown like stars upon her brow.
Fearing the dream would pass too soon, Aragorn ran toward her, calling out, “Tinúviel, Tinúviel!” just as the man Beren had done in the Elder Days.
But then the world was enveloped in a scarlet light and he could see nothing. He felt a burning like a fire in his eyes and fell to his knees. From far away he thought he could hear a wail of anguish from some fair voice, blending with his own scream in a ghastly harmony. But soon the pounding of his own heart in his head drowned out both. He clenched tight his eyes in pain and knew nothing more for what seemed an age.
