I am so far out of the box on this one, I can’t even see it with a star-seeker. I usually only write Silm-based fic – this is Fourth Age. I usually focus on the Feanorians or at least the Noldorin peoples – this has two beloved characters from Lord of the Rings, but no Noldo. I have never written a mystery, here’s one for all of you. Oh…and I write short – I’m the Queen of Drabbles. This one….well, let’s just say it’s anything BUT short. Welcome to my nightmare 
