2. Author's Note

This was originally written for a contrelamontre (timed) challenge on LiveJournal. The theme was "Air" and the time limit was 75 minutes, so it's not as polished as a "regular" story might be, but it also requires a certain economy in composition that I'm growing rather fond of.

I think the meaning of the Sindarin phrases is clear from the context, but just in case:

Lasto beth nîn - Hear my voice
Tolo dan nan galad - Come back to the light

Feedback is very welcome.
