~ A crossover between Esteliel's Ethuil'waew, the first story in her Anestel series, and my Dark Prince.
The story begins in approximately 500 Third Age, when Mirkwood is still the Greenwood. Following Ethuil'waew, Imladris and the Greenwood have been in a state of war for hundreds of years.
Alone, on a mission into the enemy realm, Glorfindel, darkened by war and cynicism, comes upon Legolas, not knowing who he is, and rapes him.
Legolas is a fertile male, a gift bestowed on his bloodline in Doriath, and he becomes pregnant. To his father, Thranduil, this gift is wound only with anguish and guilt, and he banishes his youngest son.
In Anestel, Legolas, in grief, journeys to Imladris and Glorfindel, in A Light In The East he is found by a tribe of semi-nomadic people from the Sea of Rhun, who travel North each spring to trade. Thus Legolas is taken South, and falls into the hands of Vanimórë, son of Sauron, at this time, ruler of a great city in the Harad, Sud Sicanna.
Recognizing the lack of love in Legolas life, and his terrible soul wounds, Vanimórë reaches out with his mind to Glorfindel in Imladris. Thus begins Glorfindel's journey to find his son.
But Legolas is not entirely without friends in the Greenwood. His elder brother Celeirdúr, searching for him, comes to Imladris and becomes a hostage for peace between the lands. On his return to the Greenwood, he sees that Legolas might never have existed, so wholly does he seem to be forgotten. And there is another, Bainalph, called the Beautiful Swan, prince of the House of Cúalph, who saw in a young Legolas something he recognized, and had previously offered to foster him in his home. But between Thranduil and Bainalph lies a night of illicit and dangerous passion.
Bainalph and Celeirdúr determine that Legolas should return to the Greenwood, and set forth on their own mission to find the prince.
But is Legolas truly safe with Vanimórë? And why did Dana, Mother of the Earth, hide the fact that she had journeyed with Maglor, and that the Northman who travels with Vanimórë and his warriors, is Sauron? Sauron, who senses the power that the blood of one as unique as Legolas and his child would bestow on him...

A crossover gift-story between Esteliel's Ethuil'waew and my Dark Prince verse.
What would have happened had Legolas not been able to flee to Imladris and Glorfindel when he found he was pregnant? What if he fell into entirely different hands?
After the Last Alliance, Vanimórë, freed for a time from Sauron's control, made himself the ruler of a Sud Sicanna, a wealthy city in the Harad. Five hundred years later, he journeys to Szrel Kain on the Sea of Rhun where rulers of the East are meeting to discuss renewing their attacks upon Gondor. Vanimórë goes to gather information, to keep his finger on the pulse of events.
Legolas, banished from his home, wanders into the hands of a clan traveling back to Rhun after a summer of trading. The Men, afraid he will bring ill-luck on them, mean to sell him, and in lands where the Dark Gods are worshiped Legolas' uniqueness would mean sacrifice, the death of both himself and the child he bears: Glorfindel's son.
He falls instead into the hands of the Dark Prince, the son of Sauron, who understands neglect and abuse only too well...
Glorfindel felt anguish as deep as a crack in the world in Vanimórë's soul.
“I know how Legolas feels better than thou canst imagine. Thou didst name me Vanimórë. That is my name in truth. Thou hast penetrating sight, or did. Vanimórë Gorthaurion. The son of Sauron holds and will protect Legolas Thranduilion and thy son. Is that not wonderfully ironic, Glorfindel?”
