1. The Truth About The LACE
by Aislynn Crowdaughter
It has been told to us of old that the knowledge about the Laws And Customs Of The Eldar (in short: the LACE) has been brought back to us by AElfwine, the great and brave mariner, the only mortal we know of who ever made the journey to the Undying Lands and came back alive to tell the tale. His account is all we know about the laws and customs of the Firstborn now(1).
However, recent discoveries have revealed new sources that give reason to believe that maybe, AElfwine's account should be taken with a grain of salt, as he might not have been privileged to see the full picture...
We have to caution our readers, though, as the evidence material contains nudity and somewhat explcit pictures. Please heed the warnings!
How AElfwine learned about the LACE:
-- The End --
(1) AElfwine the mariner is a character Tolkien created in his Lost Tales; his story, and how he ended up in Aman and brought back the knowledge of everything we know about Elves is told in the History of Middle Earth (HoME), Vol. II, The Book of Lost Tales, London 1984, HarperCollins Publishers 2002, page 312 and following. The Laws and Customs of The Eldar, as published in HoME Vol. 10, "Morgoth's Ring", London 1993, HarperCollins Publishers 2002, Page 209 and following, are told in AElfwine's voice and start with "AElfwine's Preamble". So, it is his account we hear when we read the LACE, not those of the Elves themselves.
